With new studies being done, many people are starting to wonder if CBD oil is an answer for them. Do you struggle with chronic pain? Are you looking for overall health balance in your body? Do you have seizures? Have you tried medication after medication and been unable to find something that works? Here’s how CBD oil might benefit you.
Beneficial Uses of CBD
Although many studies are still being undertaken, we have promising evidence so far. CBD oil helps people with the following issues:
Arthritis pain, Multiple sclerosis, Chronic pain, Drug withdrawal symptoms, Seizures/epilepsy, Alzheimer’s, Antipsychotic
We also have some early indication and anticipate findings that CBD can also help with acne, heart health, diabetes (Type 1), and even cancer.
CBD is also commonly used to address anxiety, depression, and insomnia. Studies suggest that CBD can help you fall asleep and stay asleep.
AN EXAMPLE OF How It Works
CBD helps stop the body’s absorption of anandamide (a compound that regulates pain). Therefore, increased levels of anandamide enter the bloodstream to reduce the sensation of pain. It may also reduce inflammation in the brain and nervous system to cause benefits for pain and insomnia.
Will CBD Make Me High?
No, CBD will not make you high. The high associated with marijuana is produced by THC, which affects the brain’s endocannabinoid receptors. The brain’s reward system is activated to produce dopamine. But CBD does not produce the effect because it doesn’t impact the same receptors as THC.
CBD is an entirely different compound with complex effects that are not psychoactive. So no, a high or change in a person’s state of mind is not produced by CBD.
The most common side effects of CBD include tiredness, diarrhea, appetite changes, and gain or loss in weight.
Also, keep in mind that CBD oil may impact the effectiveness of other medications. Consult your doctor about how your medications or supplements may react with CBD. If your medication warns against consuming grapefruit, the risk is higher. We always recommend speaking with a medical professional prior to beginning to take CBD.
Furthermore, studies related to CBD apply to adult trials and are not recommended for children as there has been little research done on how CBD may influence a developing brain.
HOW DO I SELECT THE RIGHT CBD OIL for me?
Selecting the proper dosage and method of use can seem quite confusing. We will be providing additional detailed information in other blogs to answer questions such as “Ways to Take your CBD” and “What is the Proper Dosage of CBD”. If you are new, try a CBD-isolate or “full-spectrum” CBD Oil and start at a lower dosage ( a couple of drops a day) and increase it gradually.
