CBD oil’s effects on health are numerous, but most of its benefits are thanks to its powerful pain fighting and anti-inflammatory properties. Thousands of people are using CBD-rich Hemp Oil to remedy the symptoms of many health conditions.
What is CBD Oil?
CBD oil is a non-intoxicating new health supplement being studied for its profound health benefits in chronic conditions. The compound comes from the Hemp plant and contains little to no THC, the main psychoactive component in Cannabis.
Let’s have a look at the top 5 health conditions people are using CBD oil on in the United States:
1. Migraines & Headaches
Headaches and migraines can be so intense that they prevent us from accomplishing even the most basic daily activities.
They can be triggered by a number of factors such as stress, muscle tension, and other variables such as environment and nutrition.
For some, chronic migraines are such a serious problem that it requires medical treatment with painkillers and other toxic pharmaceuticals.
Studies show that CBD has been able to reduce the neuropathic pain induced by chronic migraines.
It may also be able to reduce the frequency of chronic migraines and headaches by relaxing the stress response and muscle tension surround the cranial nerves.
2. Epileptic Seizures
Perhaps the most famous effect of CBD has been its ability to reduce the frequency and severity of seizures. At first, it was parents illegally treating their children with CBD oil who reported the effect that garnered CBD’s notoriety.
After years of thorough investigation, the FDA and the DEA have approved CBD formulations for the treatment of childhood seizure disorders.
Further clinical trials are currently underway to confirm a similar effect in adults. Experts aren’t exactly sure why some people suffer from seizure disorders or why seizures occur.
It’s believed that CBD exhibits its anti-epileptic effects by calming certain overactive neurological functions in the brain, which are thought to trigger dysfunctional electrical activity.
3. Parkinson’s Disease
Parkinson’s patients suffer from a disease that advances neuro-degeneration causing a multitude of chronic health problems that affect coordination, cognition, sleep, emotions, and essentially every aspect of physical and mental wellbeing.
Thousands of people report CBD helps manage the deleterious symptoms of Parkinson’s disease and a growing body of scientific evidence supports their claims.
Tremors, shaking, muscle spasms, insomnia, cognitive impairment, and irritability are most common in Parkinson’s. Research shows that CBD may be able to remedy many of these symptoms by targeting the endocannabinoid system and other neuro-receptors.
Studies indicate that CBD has been able to reduce tremors and shaking in Parkinson’s, as well as improving aspects of cognition, coordination, sleep, and mood.
CBD has also been shown to have neuroprotective properties that may also help to prevent the onset and advancement of neurodegenerative symptoms and diseases such as Parkinson’s.
4. Chronic Pain
The most common disability among Americans and the most common condition CBD oil is used to remedy is chronic pain.
Lower back, neck and face pain and joint pain are the most prevalent types of chronic pain.
CBD reduces chronic pain by reducing pain perception in the pain-receptor cells and by reducing pain-signals that are sent to the brain.
It also triggers retrograde signaling of the inflammatory response, reducing pain-causing inflammation.
Less pain perception and signaling, coupled with CBD’s anti-inflammatory effects make CBD oil a powerful, all-natural, non-toxic effective pain-reliever that’s legal in all 50 states.
5. Crohn’s Disease
Crohn’s Disease is a debilitating disease that causes severe inflammation within the digestive tract. Left untreated it can result in severe malnutrition, low quality of life, cancer, and early death.
Research on CBD’s effects on Crohn’s disease has revealed promising results. Experts believe it’s CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties targeting the body’s own endocannabinoid system that are responsible for the beneficial effect. In some cases, CBD in the treatment of Crohn’s disease has led to complete remission of the condition.
Always first consult a professional medical doctor to diagnose and treat serious medical conditions. Similar to grapefruit, CBD may alter the way that the body metabolizes certain medications.
The most common side effects of taking CBD include fatigue, dizziness, and lower blood pressure. Consult with your physician about before experimenting with CBD for serious medical conditions.
