there is an unhealthy relationship with the hypothalamus.
- Sociopolitical factors have slowed and stunted
CBD research and the positive effects that it can have on the
lies a difference in the clinical setting and the research
- Someone who is chronically stressed is more
likely to get stuck in that stage when taking CBD than someone with
a different biochemical status. 19:04

been able to develop a topical form of CBD that helps heal the mind

to the fact that human beings have unique biochemistry to those
around them, everyone reacts differently to CBD.
