CBD Oil Benefits
CBD oil research is in the early stages, but steadily increasing as demand for CBD products increases. Several benefits of CBD have already been identified, and more benefits are being discovered all the time. Below is a current CBD oil benefits list.
CBD Oil for Pain Relief
Research shows that CBD products may be a successful alternative to traditional pain relievers such as opioids. A 2008 study showed that CBD products were effective in overall pain management without adverse side effects. CBD was also beneficial in treating insomnia related to chronic pain. Although more human tests are needed, initial research shows that the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD may help treat pain associated with arthritis. Furthermore, the National Cancer Institute has pointed to CBD as a potential option for relieving chemotherapy symptoms in cancer patients.
CBD Oil for Reducing Anxiety and Depression
Anxiety and depression are often treated with pharmaceutical drugs which may cause drowsiness, insomnia, headache, sexual dysfunction or agitation. These drugs are also often highly addictive. CBD products may be a natural alternative to these potentially dangerous drugs. CBD may reduce anxiety and depression by acting on the brain’s receptors for serotonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates mood and social behavior.
CBD Oil for Healing and Preventing Acne
Acne, a skin condition that affects over 9 percent of the population, is thought to be caused, in part, by the body’s overproduction of sebum, an oily secretion from glands in the skin. CBD may reduce the body’s production of sebum and reduce the effects of acne. The anti-inflammatory properties of CBD have also been shown to be effective in treating acne.
CBD Oil for Heart Health
Research has recently found a link between CBD and heart and circulatory health, including the potential to lower blood pressure. High blood pressure is linked to a variety of other health issues including stroke, heart attack and metabolic syndrome. The stress and anxiety-reducing properties of CBD may be responsible for lowering blood pressure. Additionally, animal studies have shown that CBD may reduce the inflammation and cell death associated with heart disease due to anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
CBD Oil for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
IBS refers to the gastrointestinal disorder that results in abdominal discomfort caused by bloating, gas, cramps, diarrhea and constipation. CBD may improve IBS symptoms by activating cannabinoid receptors in the GI tract and inhibiting the secretion of gastrointestinal fluid and decreasing inflammation. Studies are continuing to yield evidence that CBD may be an effective treatment for those that suffer from IBS.
