CBD as an Antibiotic

The Cannabis plant and most notably, CBD is being studied as a potential antibiotic against bacteria such as “golden staph and pneumonia, including bacteria that have become resistant to other antibiotics,”

This study was done by the Australia  Institute for Molecular BioscienceDr Mark Blaskovich from IMB’s Centre for Superbug Solutions found that CBD (Cannabidiol) was effective against some bacterias.

Two of the most important points of the study found that, ”  Importantly, the drug retained its activity against bacteria that have become highly resistant to other common antibiotics. Under extended exposure conditions that lead to resistance against the antibiotics vancomycin or daptomycin, cannabidiol did not lose effectiveness.  It was also effective at disrupting biofilms, a physical form of bacteria growth that leads to difficult-to-treat infections.”

We here at Artistic Organics, are excited at the studies being done on CBD.  We feel whole plant products such as our AO Oil and NuLeaf are great at balancing the body and helping it run more efficiently.. These are whole plant products, which means as much of the plant as possible is preserved in the growing and manufacturing of the oil.
