CBD, along with its derivative products, has been gaining popularity in recent years. More and more people are paying attention to this revolutionary product because of its incredible benefits to the body and mind. Jessica Tutino is one of the entrepreneurs who have dedicated their businesses to help people access medical marijuana and reap its massive advantages.
Jessica Tutino is the founder of General Management Team, a firm that handles full turnkey operations for new and existing CBD and MMJ brands. Her team has created top MMJ and CBD brands like Item-9 Cannabis Creations, Natures Wonder Dispensary, The Flower Shop, Orion Remedy, and Lit Cannabis.
Jessica got involved in Medical Marijuana to explore more of its properties and how consumers can apply it medically.
“I went to college to be a Pharmacist and started as an intern at Mayo Clinic in Arizona after school. I spent eight years in pharmacy before deciding to be more involved in symptom management and medication creation. In late 2015, I switched to Medical Marijuana, where I’d be able to do both,” she says.
So what are the benefits of CBD?
CBD is one of the most effective methods of relieving pain.
“There are so many CBD products on the market, and a large majority of them are very effective for people who suffer from physical pain like muscle aches or joint pains. At GMT, we are heavily involved in product development for many of our clients, so we do extensive research on what exactly goes into the product and how it will help the end-user.”
Most CBD products used for pain relief are applied in topical forms like creams, gels, and patches.
Anxiety and Depression
Countless people deal with stress daily and hence suffer from mental disorders like anxiety and depression.
“CBD, especially in oil form, is a great treatment option for a whole range of disorders; social anxiety, panic attacks, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and general anxiety. It achieves this by activating serotonin receptors in the brain and agitating the serotonin system, which is associated with happiness and can reduce anxiety when active.”
Although CBD is not designed to be used as a sole treatment option, it can significantly impact the brain and gear it towards a faster recovery.
Yes, CBD can even help in curing skin infections like acne and pimples. If you have acne or any related skin problem, it is always advisable to consult a dermatologist for a proper diagnosis. However, CBD can still be a worthy addition to your treatment and skincare routine.
“Acne is usually caused because the facial skin cells secrete excessive sebum. This usually causes clogged pores, and the trapped oil and dirt can cause acne-generating infections. CBD prevents the cells from creating sebum beyond the amount that is needed by the body and can nip acne right in the bud.”
