7 Extraordinary

uses for CBD oil

1. Pain Relief

In our bodies, we have an Endocannabinoid System. This system is partially responsible for the pain sensations we feel. When we add CBD into the system, it interacts with the ECS and decreases the amount of pain we feel. This is one reason the CBD is so interesting because it provides an alternative to other pain medications in some cases. Some people have been able to replace their other medications all together with CBD oil products that work for them. While this is not advised to try, this highlights how effective CBD can be for some people.

 

Consumers are using CBD as a specific therapy for multiple diverse medical conditions—particularly pain, anxiety, depression, and sleep disorders. These data provide a compelling rationale for further research to better understand the therapeutic potential of CBD.”  Source

2. Skin Care

With strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, CBD is becoming a new go-to ingredient in beauty and skin care regimens. With its anti-inflammatory properties, it can help with conditions such as acne or eczema while its antioxidant properties can help with signs of aging and reducing free radicals. In some studies, CBD appears to be more effective than vitamin C- which is a commonly sought out ingredient in many top line skin care products. CBD skincare and beauty routines will likely become a common practice as this industry unfolds, and big name brands will likely buy in to have CBD as an ingredient to their formulations.

3. Anxiety

CBD interacts with the brain also, which has caused it to become the subject of study for ailments like anxiety, depression and other mental problems. Studies have found that it can correct imbalances in the brain and help the patient feel normal again. This is exciting news for anyone who is dependent on benzodiazepines like Xanax because the side effects of these medications can be severe.

We found that existing preclinical evidence strongly supports CBD as a treatment for generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder when administered acutely”  Source

4. PTSD

PTSD is a stress disorder which occurs after an extremely traumatic event. Currently, many of the treatment options available either don’t work, or have such severe side effects that avoiding them is better than taking them. Because of this, CBD holds some promising research which may help millions of people affected.

5. Siezures

Recently the FDA approved a drug called Epidolex which is the first CBD based pharmaceutical. This drug helps alleviate seizures for many children. Seizures are quite an unpleasant condition to treat and manage which is why this news is so great. Not only does it have fewer side effects than traditional medication routes, but it comes from a natural source; Hemp.

For the first time, there is now class 1 evidence that adjunctive use of CBD improves seizure control in patients with specific epilepsy syndromes.” Source

6. Neuroprotectant

Defined by the NIH as “neuroprotection is an effect that may result in salvage, recovery or regeneration of the nervous system, its cells, structure, and function. “

CBD acts as a neuroprotectant for the brain and may help psychiatric conditions.

CBD attenuates brain damage associated with neurodegenerative and/or ischemic conditions. It also has positive effects on attenuating psychotic-, anxiety- and depressive-like behaviors.” Source

7. Immune Support

Immune diseases are another ailment which can be hard to manage and treat. Many of these conditions last a lifetime which means the patient must quickly find something that works and stick with it. CBD has shown some promising results through studies that prove it may help with multiple sclerosis, diabetes, and even arthritis.

 

Cannabidiol is a non-psychotomimetic compound from Cannabis sativa that presents antipsychotic, anxiolytic, anti-inflammatory, and neuroprotective effects. Although the studies that investigate the effects of this compound on movement disorders are surprisingly few, cannabidiol emerges as a promising compound to treat and/or prevent them.”  Source

Conclusion

New benefits of CBD are being discovered all the time. Recently, the Farm Bill of 2018 passed, which will help lower some of the barriers that existed to research CBD. While the existing research is far from complete, it gives a window view of what else might come from CBD products besides Epidiolex. The Hemp CBD industry is estimated to grow to over 22 Billion dollars by 2022, and the market is already seeing more brands emerge.

It’s important to note that aside from Epidiolex, the FDA has not cleared CBD for any other use and it is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

As with any supplement, you should speak with your doctor before consuming CBD oil as it may have unintended effects with other medications you may be taking.

 

You must decide to try CBD oil for yourself, and see if it works. There are plenty of success stories online of people who try it with success, and you could be one of them.
