Are you, or someone you are close to, suffering from a chronic condition, and are curious about what CBD oil can do?
Maybe you're tempted to buy some CBD Oil but have no idea what you're looking for?
Or perhaps you are interested in promoting medicinal cannabis oil to help others, and would really like to know what you're talking about.
What Will You Learn?
This incredibly insightful course invites you to really get to know the cannabis plant, its constituents and the increasingly popular CBD oil. CBD oil is everywhere at the moment, now that it is legal in many countries. It’s a booming business, and there are some impressive claims made about what it can do for our body.
This powerful course sets out to explain what exactly Medicinal Cannabis and CBD oil is, and what are its healing benefits. Based on the latest up to date research this course will methodically take you through all aspects of the cannabis plant, its constituents, and its products, and this information will hopefully leave you in no doubt that this is a remarkable plant, with remarkable products – which for some has had transformational results.
You’ll learn about the many products derived from the cannabis plant. In particular, you’ll look at how CBD oil is made and the various ways it can be administered. You’ll also get to know the cannabinoids, along with other constituents found in cannabis – exploring their therapeutic actions – before plunging into the fascinating world of the endocannabinoid system.
You may not be aware of it but the endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a part of each of our bodies; a regulatory system designed to bring us into homeostasis – balancing our health and well being. Furthermore, this system is comprised of receptors that interact only with cannabinoids – the compound found in cannabis. The course explains this correlation and how this knowledge has aided further research and discoveries into the medicinal use of cannabis.
When it comes to cannabis, one of the most-studied areas is its use in pain relief. Through your study, you’ll assess its analgesic effects. From this foundation, the Medicinal Cannabis & CBD Oil Diploma Course walks you through the inclusion of cannabinoids in the symptom management of various conditions, including issues of cancer, the digestive and respiratory systems, the immune system, mental health, and the endocrine system.
The course concludes by arming you with the knowledge you need to be able to seek out, understand and analyse good research. This is important, as it helps you to sift out the ‘snake oil’ claims and get to the truth.
Who Would Benefit from This Course?
The Medicinal Cannabis & CBD Oil Diploma Course will be of interest to you if you have tracked the usage of cannabis as a medicine and want to further your knowledge. You may have heard about the use of the plant becoming legalised in more countries, particularly for medical use, and want to understand more about why this may be and what its benefits are. It may be that you, or someone you are close to, may be suffering from a chronic condition, the symptoms of which are said to be alleviated by the drug.
Whatever your reason to study this course, you will gain an excellent understanding of the chemistry and pharmacology of the cannabis plant and the therapeutic actions of the cannabinoids, as well as learning about the body and its functions.
