Cannabis has gotten a bad rap due to the reputation of recreational marijuana, but that perception is beginning to change as we become more and more aware of all of the possible health benefits of CBD oil. CBD oil, derived from cannabis, produces certain beneficial results – none of which include the intoxication caused by THC. Research is ongoing, but here is a synopsis of the amazing potential benefits of CBD oil…
Certain researchers believe that CBD oil may change the way that the brain reacts to serotonin – a chemical that regulates mood, resulting in anxiety relief including reduced stress and PTSD symptoms, better sleep, as well as decreases physical manifestations of stress including heart rate and high blood pressure.
CBD oil is also thought to protect against and reduce symptoms of neurodegeneration. This could be particularly helpful in Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s and stroke patients.
Additionally, researchers are looking into the anti-inflammatory and pain management properties of CBD oil, which may be beneficial in the treatment of arthritis, muscle spasms and other conditions that can cause chronic pain.
CBD oil is also thought to reduce the over-activity of glands which produce oil on the skin; and has consequently been used to reduce acne.
The American Epilepsy Society states that CBD oil also offers hope for seizure reduction.
Plus, CBD oil is being studied for cancer cell growth prevention and the alleviation of symptoms association with cancer. Although this research is still in its early stages, it is promising.
