What is PEA (Palmitoylethanolamide)?
CBDa: Anti-Inflammatory Potential
Inflammation is a natural response to stress, injury, and infection. It's part of the immune system's response to healing the body and combat invasive compounds by increasing blood flow to the affected area and promoting the repair of damaged tissue.
However, when inflammation persists for a long period of time, it causes a big issue. Chronic inflammation is linked to a number of health problems, including heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.CBDa has been shown to be a powerful anti-inflammatory agent. In one study, CBDa was found to be more effective at reducing inflammationthan both ibuprofen and aspirin.
CBDa: Anti-Nausea Potential
Nausea is the result of a complex interaction between the gut and the brain. It can be triggered by a variety of factors, including certain medications, a virus, or hormones. When something upsets the delicate balance between the gut and the brain, it triggers an area of the brain called the vomiting center. This area is responsible for coordinating all the different muscles involved in vomiting. So basically, when your brain gets the signal that something's not right in your stomach, it tells your muscles to start contracting so that you can get rid of whatever is causing the problem.
The cannabis plant has been a hot topic for a lot of research around nausea behaviors.
In animal studies, CBDa was found to be more effective at preventing nausea and vomiting than CBD through its interactions with the 5-HT1A receptor.
CBDa: Anti-Viral Potential
Anti-viral compounds prevent viruses from replicating. Many antiviral drugs work by targeting viral enzymes , which are essential for a virus to reproduce and cause infection. Other anti-viral medications work by supporting the immune system to combat the virus.
Anti-viral potential isn't unique to CBDa. There has been numerous cannabinoid research looking at endogenous and exogenous cannabinoid's influence on viral infections in vivo and in vivo trials, and found that the anti-inflammatory activity of cannabinoids may be beneficial in combating viral infection activity.
Most recently, a study was published on CBDa and CBGa's potential in blocking the replication of the SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) virus.
CBDa: Anti-Cancer Potential
Metastasis is the progression and spread of cancer cells to other parts of the body, and it's responsible for most cancer-related deaths.
Early research suggests that CBDa found in raw cannabis was able to halt the migration of highly invasive breast cancer cells cultured in Petri dishes, which is a promising first step into animal and eventually human trials on the effectiveness of CBDa treatment towards cancer cell growth.
Why Olive Oil? Olive oil is an excellent vehicle for long lasting CBD support. Good for those who choose sublingual ingestion or desire the added benefit of omega-6 & omega-3 essential fatty acids.
