Benefits of CBD Oil

  • Blog

You may have heard people touting CBD oil as the cure for almost any health problem you could have. Those claims are probably a bit overreaching. From what we know right now, CBD oil is not the cure for any disease. However, there is a growing body of research establishing that CBD oil can have a number of health benefits.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the many cannabinoids found in cannabis sativa, also known as marijuana. You can also find CBD in hemp. It is different from tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is a psychoactive cannabinoid found in marijuana. CBD is not psychoactive but may offer some of the other benefits people associate with marijuana.

CBD May Relieve Pain

People have been using cannabis to treat pain for roughly 5,000 years. Recent scientific research has shown that CBD may interact with the human endocannabinoid system to help reduce pain in the body. CBD may provide relief for some types of pain on its own and may be effective when combined with THC for certain types of pain, including multiple sclerosis and arthritis pain. CBD may also help reduce pain from fibromyalgia and arthritis.

CBD May Help Mental Health Disorders

CBD may be helpful in treating some mental health disorders, particularly anxiety disorders. Studies show that it reduces anxiety. People have also used CBD oil to effectively treat insomnia, PTSD, social anxiety, and depression.

CBD May Help People Manage the Side-Effects of Cancer Treatment

Cancer treatments, particularly chemotherapy, can have some nasty side effects including pain, nausea, and vomiting. CBD helps people manage pain related to cancer. Some people find it helpful in alleviating nausea and vomiting, though results are mixed. If you opt to use CBD to treat cancer symptoms, it is important to inform your treatment team because of possible drug interactions.

CBD May Help People with Neurological Disorders

CBD has shown some promising early results in treating some people with neurological diseases like epilepsy and multiple sclerosis. However, the results are not universal. Particularly with epilepsy, it is possible that CBD can exacerbate symptoms instead of alleviating them. CBD oil should be used cautiously, at least initially, and in cooperation with your neurologist.

CBD May Help Your Heart

CBD may lower high blood pressure, which can reduce your risk of other conditions such as heart attack, stroke, and metabolic syndrome. CBD oil may also reduce arterial stiffness. However, there has been minimal research on these claims and more research is needed.

Side Effects

While CBD is generally considered safe to use, it can have some negative side effects including diarrhea, fatigue, changes in appetite, weight loss or weight gain, and drug interactions. If you are taking medication, it is important to consult your doctor or pharmacist about possible interactions.
