  1. 3:58 I don't know much about anything else, but this is certainly not true for regular cannabis use. If you were to smoke regularly, particularly daily, it can take months for the final traces of the drug to be processed out of your system, so you'd have to stop for a while before the testing period to be safe

  2. cannabis as pain treatment has to do with the ability of the compounds in the plant to metabolize retrograde siganlling pathways in neuronal cells. the phytocannabinoids ( THC CBD etc…..) act as neurotransmitters attenuating biological messaging that drives functioning of the cells. the pain reducing role of cannabinoids whether endogenously derived from fatty acid metabolism or gained from plant derivatives such as cannabis is to modulate the intracellular lipid metabolism signals via bio feedback mechanisms ( retrograde signals).

  3. I really wanted to like this video, but then I just realized he was vouching for the brand/concept because he is apart of the brand/industry. I understand that CBD is beneficial to anyone's well-being… I just meant how enraptured I was with him vouching for it, and then him becoming a sales man

  4. Interesting video! I didn’t know football players couldn’t take CBD oil. Odd since just the CBD oil is legal in all 50 states.

    The background music is annoying though. I was distracted by it the entire time.
