San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 06, 2012
Research by California Pacific Medical Center indicating that cannabidiol (CBD), a non-psychotropic compound found in hemp, may arrest the spread of aggressive, metastatic cancer cells, is drawing the attention of the medical community. John Malanca of medical cannabis resource UnitedPatientsGroup.com believes this encouraging news will also bring CBD to the attention of health-minded consumers.
“Many people want the health benefits of CBD, but they don’t want to get ‘high,’” said Malanca. “Dixie X products deliver a new option, and as our understanding and awareness of the health benefits of CBD grow, so does the attractiveness of Dixie X CBD wellness products.”
Americans are increasingly adopting healthier eating habits, and 80% take dietary supplements, says Malanca. Because hemp-based Dixie X products are officially classified as food items, he expects people will use them for the same reasons they eat broccoli or kale.
Prior studies show that CBD helps control inflammation, anxiety, nausea, and symptoms of dystonia, an often painful movement disorder which causes involuntary muscle contractions and repetitive twisting movements. Some clinicians are also using CBD as an atypical antipsychotic in the treatment of schizophrenia.
CBD may also prove effective for easing symptoms of a wide range of difficult-to-control conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, PTSD, antibiotic-resistant infections, and neurological disorders, according to Project CBD, a nonprofit educational service dedicated to promoting and publicizing research concerning the medical utility of cannabidiol (CBD).
The Dixie X line of hemp-derived CBD products includes a tincture, a salve, and capsules.
