Cannabidiol (CBD) is available in a vast array of products, but they’re not all the same. You don’t know the amount or quality of the CBD in most of the products you find on store shelves. Helo Chen, DO, and the experienced team at Serenity Medical Centers offer professional CBD products — Clinical CBD™ by MD FARMA™ — giving you the highest-quality CBD for treating your health needs. To learn more, call the Austin or San Antonio, Texas office or book an appointment online today.
This is not retail CBD. Clinical CBD is available exclusively through health care providers. These CBD products are manufactured with the highest-quality standards and undergo rigorous third-party testing. In other words, MD FARMA goes the extra mile to ensure that your CBD produces optimal results.
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is one of your body’s least known but essential systems. The ECS produces endocannabinoids. These are neurotransmitters that help regulate nearly all of your vital functions, from learning, memory, and mood to sleep, immune response, and pain control.
Like all neurotransmitters, endocannabinoids attach to receptors on cells, where they activate a biochemical response. In this role, they’re essential for the health of your heart, skin, bones, muscles, liver, kidneys, and other organs.
CBD contains active ingredients similar to your natural endocannabinoids as a plant-based phytocannabinoid. This allows CBD to produce results by interacting with your ECS.
CBD can inhibit the breakdown of natural endocannabinoids, allowing them to stay in the body for a longer period of time and enhance their effect. It can also bind to or influence non-cannabinoid receptors. Overall, CBD assists the body in maintaining its optimal state of balance.
Because the ECS system has such a widespread impact on your body, CBD products may improve many symptoms and conditions, including:
CBD has such a powerful impact that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved CBD-based prescription medications to treat seizure disorders and ease the side effects of chemotherapy.
While CBD products boast a wide range of potential benefits, they’re not ideal for every patient. For example, you should avoid CBD products if you have a known allergy to CBD or sesame oil.
Though Clinical CBD is generally considered safe, in high doses, it can interact with the metabolism of some medications. You can end up with more or less medication in your system, affecting your overall health.
The team at Serenity Medical Centers carefully screens your medical history and completes a thorough examination. Then they recommend CBD drops, soft gels, or a topical cream only if it’s safe for you.
