While scientific studies on CBD in humans are currently minimal, many people around the world are claiming the positive benefits of using CBD products for a number of health problems.
The body naturally creates its own CBD. However, exactly how Hemp CBD works within the body is still relatively unknown. It is thought that it works with our natural CBD receptors, CB1 in the brain and CB2 in the immune system. The popularity of CBD will certainly result in future studies further illuminating the its healing powers.
Here are some common health problems which may be helped by using CBD:
1. Generalized Pain
Because CBD supposedly works within your immune system, many people have reported decreased pain while using CBD. CBD for pain is available in many different forms. Lotions, salves, oil and tea are the most popular among CBD medicinal use.
2. Anti-Inflammatory - Acne, Type 1 Diabetes, Multiple Sclerosis and Arthritis
CBD's use for anti-inflammatory concerns is the next most promising use for CBD after pain. Small studies on humans and animals have shown that CBD use can reduce chronic inflammation, however, further studies are needed to back up the evidence scientifically. CBD could be used to slow down the progression of diseases such as Arthritis and Multiple Sclerosis, preventing permanent damage to joints over time. CBD can also reduce inflammation in the sebum glands, helping people with acne, and in the pancreas helping people with type 1 diabetes.
• Is CBD Oil Legal?
• What is CBD Oil and does it work?
In July 2018 the FDA(USA) approved the use of epilepsy drug Epidiolex, a purified form of CBD oil, for treating two types of epilepsy. This is the only case of significant scientific research backing up results and Epidiolex is now available with a prescription in many countries.
4. Anxiety, Addiction, and Mood-Related Disorders
While THC has been shown to increase anxiety, paranoia, and depression, CBD can help to combat these symptoms.
People suffering from addiction can also benefit from CBD reducing withdrawal symptoms such as pain, anxiety, and insomnia. As CBD often contains a tiny amount of THC, it is important to be extra careful where you source CBD products so you can ensure the levels of THC in the product are minimal, as this could make symptoms worse.
There have been many studies on the effects of CBD on sleep which have been very successful because CBD works with your brain and helps with anxiety and mood-related disorders. A study of 400 people from 2018 showed that CBD significantly helped with insomnia, even more than THC.
Though these benefits are exciting it’s important to remember that more human studies need to take place to prove the scientific evidence for the effects CBD in humans. Please also remember to do your research and only purchase your CBD products from reputable, legal companies.
