Author Jim Collins, PhD, has recently released his latest book entitled “Living Longer and Stronger with CBD.” In it, he explains the health benefits of CBD in the medical field, especially with disorders such as mental, emotional, physical, or neurodegenerative.
Dr. Collins has done extensive research, reading over 500 academic and medical articles on the many health benefits of CBD and has evaluated its uses in many different conditions and disorders.
According to the author, there are many uses for CBD aside from the well known anxiety reducing properties. “I was shocked to find out how effective it could be. For instance, CBD has anti-anxiety benefits that can be more effective than prescription medications. The same is true for depression and other mood disorders”.
Dr. Collins has spent the majority of his career working with elderly members of the community, and was particularly interested in it’s uses to reduce symptoms of serious illnesses and diseases such as Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, and Alzheimer’s, which are primarily associated with the elderly.
“I’ve been a gerontologist for 30 years and have always focused on the health and wellness of older adults and seniors. Being a natural element, CBD was a no-brainer for me”, said Dr. Collins.
Because opinions about CBD are still controversial and debated all over the globe, it is only legal in some areas of the world. Dr. Collins intends to ease concerns and spread the undeniable positive uses for CBD. And since he has done such extensive research on the matter, few others are as qualified to promote, or deny the uses of CBD.

CBD is THC free, which means it does not contain any part of the plant that creates any kind of “high”. This is another aspect of the plant that promotes a safe feeling when it is being used. Many people don’t know that Cannabinoids are actually a natural part of our diet.
“Here is some pretty sound evidence that CBD can be effective,” Says Dr. Collins. “We possess an endocannabinoid system and it wasn’t discovered until the mid-1990s. This system acts like a regulator of the body and brain and may be behind many health problems. The endocannabinoid system needs to be fed cannabinoids like hemp in order to keep it healthy and properly functioning.”
