CBD is rising in popularity and widespread use here in the USA. CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of the 104 chemical compounds found in the cannabis sativa plant. Unlike THC CBD is nonpsychoactive and will not induce a “high” feeling.
This makes it an excellent choice for those looking for pain relief without mind-altering substances or the dangers of opioids which have been proven to be extremely addictive and have many side effects.
CBD oil is made through extraction – removing the oil from the plant and combining it with a carrier oil such as coconut or hemp seed oil. It is sold in sublingual drops, transdermal patches, and even edibles such as gummy bears.
What Could CBD Do For You?
Let’s look at the touted benefits:
#1 Pain Relief
The body produces endocannabinoids. These are neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors in your nervous system.
Studies have shown that CBD may help reduce chronic pain by impacting endocannabinoid receptor activity, reducing inflammation and interacting with neurotransmitters. It has been shown to reduce pain both in movement and at rest.
#2 Depression and Anxiety Help
While usually treated with pharmaceutical drugs such as benzodiazepines these medications have side effects and can be addictive. They may be ok short term but longer term natural is far less dangerous.
#3 Cancer Symptom Relief
Though more study is needed, promising finds have been made for those undergoing chemotherapy as well as those choosing to opt out of traditional medical treatments.
#4 Neurological Benefits
CBD has shown to be positive in reducing muscle spasms in those with MS, seizures in those with epilepsy, and other neurological diseases.
#5 Heart Health Benefits
CBD has been shown to help lower blood pressure which benefits the entire circulatory system.
Other amazing benefits may include anti-tumor effects, diabetes prevention, substance abuse treatment, and even antipsychotic effects!
