CBD (Cannabidiol) is a cannabinoid extracted from the hemp plant, a plant that has been a trusted herb to mankind for thousands of years. This cannabinoid has gained recognition in recent years for a proven ability to induce neurogenesis.*
CBD promotes an anti-flammatory response in the body, particularly the brain, acting as an antioxidant and neuroprotectant.* The most often reported effects from CBD are:
There is one area of the brain that is especially targetted by CBD, which is the hippocampus, an area that is significantly prone to the ravages of aging. It is the assciated with spatial and episodic memory.
In a 2013 study on mice published by Cambridge University Press, CBD induces the formation of new neurons (brain cells).* The formation of new brain cells is one of the body's critical processes that is observed to decline with age, and is directly associated with longer lifespans. (The same reason endorphins correlate to longer lifespans.)*
Bone strength is also observed to decline with age, and CBD has a proven ability to promote stronger bones by assisting in the formation of collagen.*
