Cannabidiol (CBD for short) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid derived from the cannabis plant. It is one of over one hundred cannabinoids identified in hemp plants. However, unlike the full cannabis plant, CBD does not contain THC which is responsible for the intoxicated feeling. CBD, on the other hand, is not a psychoactive substance and provides a myriad of therapeutic benefits.
Extracted from the flowers and buds of the hemp plant, CBD is pressed into oil and is becoming increasingly popular to treat, and even prevent, a wide array of health issues in states where medicinal marijuana has now been legalized. CBD oil is stronger and more natural than most non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
Cannabidiol, better known as CBD has been credited for numerous benefits including:
1. Pain Relief
Studies have shown that CBD may help reduce chronic pain by impacting endocannabinoid receptor activity, reducing inflammation and interacting with neurotransmitters*. CBD has a long history of treating those suffering from intense pain and particularly patients who have not been helped by conventional medicine. Patients have turned to CBD in various forms to help treat pain from arthritis, migraines, chronic back pain and more.
2. Anxiety and Depression
Anxiety and depression are typically treated with pharmaceutical drugs which can cause numerous side effects, as well as, the possibility of substance abuse and addiction. In one study, 57 males were given 300mg of CBD 90 minutes before public speaking which resulted in significant reduction of anxiety during the speech*.
3. Reduction of Acne
Thanks to the remarkable anti-inflamatory qualities of CBD one study concluded that CBD had the ability to reduce subum production which is instrumental in reducing acne*.
Many claim to have had their sleep improved with the aid of CBD. A study published in Permanente Journal involved 72 adults with poor sleep. After the first month sleep scores improved in 66% of the particpants*.
5. Reduction of Cancer Treatment Symptoms
The National Cancer Institute has pointed to CBD to lessen chemotherapy side-effects including nausea, pain and vomiting. A study by the British Pharmacological Society suggest that CBD controls nausea by influencing the serotonin levles so that the body will have less stimulation of the vomiting controls in the brain*.
6. Heart Health
A number of studies have indicated that CBD may be able to help with high blood pressure which could lead to heart attacks. One study indicated that men given a single dose of CBD experienced a small blood pressure decrease after a stress test. Another study involving diabetic animals demonstrated that CBD may help reduce the inflammation and cell death associated with heart disease due to its powerful antioxidant and stress-reducing properties*.
