The recent legalization of cannabis in certain areas of the world has led to a boom in scientific research into one of the world’s most popular plants. Now, almost everywhere you go, you can find CBD supplements, creams, and treats. But what exactly is CBD, and what benefits does CBD offer to the world of health?

Before it became illegal about a century ago, humankind had a 10,000 year-long, highly integrated relationship with both types of the cannabis plant; marijuana, and hemp. Marijuana, the kind that contains the psychoactive compound, THC, was used in the majority of medicines before the 1930s. Hemp, the non-psychoactive variety, was used as an indispensable industrial fiber for cloth, ropes, paper, building supplies, fuel, and more.

Now that the plant is once again finding mass cultural acceptance, modern science is able to see exactly how, and why, this plant has amazing implications for the health of the body. While the marijuana variety has long been known for its healing effects, recent discoveries have shown that there is a cornucopia of health benefits hiding in the hemp plant as well.

What is CBD?

Hemp, in addition to its industrial applications, also contains the highest concentration of the compound, CBD, short for cannabidiol. While CBD is powerful on its own for reasons we will discuss below, science has actually proven it to be more beneficial, especially for pain management, when combined with its sister compound, tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC.

What Does CBD Do?

A stunning revelation has recently surfaced in science; the human body is literally wired to receive the medicinal compounds contained in cannabis plants. The endocannabinoid system is a newly discovered network that runs throughout our body, laced with receptor sites that allow us to make use of the medicinal compounds CBD and THC.

CBD has proven to be a beneficial, healing ally for the following:

  • Relieves Some Types of Pain and Inflammation
  • Has Antipsychotic Effects
  • Reduces Anxiety
  • Helps to Fight Cancer
  • Relieves Nausea
  • May Treat Seizures and Other Neurological Disorders
  • Lowers Incidence of Diabetes
  • Promotes Cardiovascular Health

Research is ongoing, but it seems like the more time goes on, the more positive implications are revealed about this miracle compound.


Is CBD Safe for Everyone?

Yes, well, almost. While CBD is generally regarded to be a safe, gentle treatment option for adults, children, and even pets, there are exceptions to everything in life. There has been no lethal dose of CBD determined, and while it is generally deemed safe for everyone, a very, very small part of the population might find that they feel sensitive to it. To ensure the greatest benefits, and lowest risks, seek out 100% organic sources with no toxic additives.

Does CBD Alter Your Consciousness?

CBD will not cause you to feel “high” or alter your consciousness. However, if you do suffer from anxiety, CBD can calm your nerves, causing you to feel more peaceful. More good news about CBD, is that it will not cause you to fail a drug test, so long as the product you are taking does not contain THC.

Digital CBD

Digital CBD is a subtle energy program that combines vibrational technology with digital media. Using a proprietary process developed by Subtle Energy Sciences founder Eric W. Thompson, Digital CBD broadcasts the amplified energetic signature of CBD through your electronic devices.

Plus, unlike physical CBD, you only need to purchase Digital CBD once in order to benefit from it for the rest of your life! And when you take into consideration the fact that the CBD oil, from which we extracted the energetic signatures for Digital CBD, cost more than $100 for less than a month’s supply, we’re talking about an incredible value here.

Digital CBD is effective on its own or can add a layer of increased power to your CBD treatments if you are taking it as a physical supplement, or as a topical cream. Join the Subtle Energy online community to share your experience with Digital CBD, and learn how others are benefiting from this technological advancement as well.
