So many people want the life-saving benefits the plant has to offer without the high. The most beneficial way to do this is by taking CBD oil.
What is CBD oil?
Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is made from strains of cannabis that contain low levels of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is what makes marijuana psychoactive. CBD oil is high in cannabinoids, a group of phytochemicals found in cannabis plants.
Cannabis has been used all over the world for millennia to treat various illness and disease and in recent years the Western scientific significance of cannabinoids for human health has become more well known.
With current research into CBD and its effects on the body, science has begun to discover all the ways in which these phytochemicals interact to fix our many ills.
Here are 13 reasons to give CBD oil a try:
CBD Oil for Cancer
Many people have decided to use alternative methods to traditional medicine to deal with their cancer. CBD Oil is one of those methods. Some of these people have reported a complete cure.
The National Cancer Institute now says that cannabis in a powerful treatment for cancer, as many clinical studies have shown this to be the case.
CBD Oil for Autism
The human body has an endocannibinoid system which exists mainly in the central nervous system. As this includes the brain, CBD oil has been found to be effective in restoring neurological communication in people with autism, thus greatly reducing or even removing the causes of autism.
CBD Oil for ADHD
As in autism, the neurological communication is involved in ADHD. Neurotransmitters are involved, and since cannabis is known to raise the levels of dopamine like ADHD drugs (amphetamines), it has been found to greatly reduce symptoms of autism. Cannabis oil also helps regulate hormones, which also helps with dopamine levels.
CBD Oil for Seizures
One of the original (in recent history) uses for CBD oil was for epilepsy in children. Many have heard of the parents who moved to states where marijuana was legal in order to get treatment for their children. Cannabis stops seizures, which prevents the damage they can do to the brain. 30% of epilepsy patients do not have a favorable response to conventional therapies, leading to a high mortality rate for this segment of people. CBD oil can be an answer for these people as well.
The reason CBD oil seems to work is because it inhibits the release of glutamate, which is an amino acid found to initiate seizures.
CBD Oil for Nausea
CBD Oil has an anti-emetic effect, based on science like helping maintain high levels of anandamide and is partially due to the prolonged activation of CB-1 receptors within the brain. This has a calming effect and help reduce nausea.
CBD Oil for Crohn’s Disease
One of the strongest effects of CBD oil is its anti-inflammatory properties. Crohn’s disease is an inflammation reponse put out by the immune system. Besides reducing inflammation it also calms the digestive tract and its spasms, relieves diarrhea and reduces pain.
A study in 2013 showed that marijuana use by Crohn’s patients put half of them into remission with no side effects. They also showed improved appetite and sleep.
CBD Oil for Dementia such as Alzheimer’s
The neuroprotective effects of CBD Oil are well known. With dementia, such as Alzheimer’s the oil removes the protein that causes the plaque that buildup responsible for the disease and reduces neuron inflammation which is a precursor to dementia.
CBD Oil for Liver Health
Liver cell oxidation is the precursor to liver problems like fatty liver and cirrhosis, degenerative diseases of the liver. Since cannibinoid receptors exist in liver tissue, CBD Oil can help prevent or alleviate these diseases.
CBD Oil for Colitis
Recent research at Case Western Reserve University in Ohio found that the fungi and bacteria in Crohn’s patients are different from normal subjects. Due to the strong antifungal and antibacterial properties of cannabis, it has been found that CBD oil does help and may even cure colitis.
CBD Oil for Insomnia
Many people who have trouble sleeping are finding that CBD oil is helping improve their sleep markedly. The calming effects and the neuroprotective effects such as reduced inflammation in the brain may be the reason.
Cannabis Oil for Anxiety
The amygdala, in our brains, is the area that allows us to experience emotion. In 2014 a study established that the amygdala does contain endocannibinoid receptors. This explains why often people with anxiety and fear can feel much calmer after using CBD Oil.
CBD Oil for Multiple Sclerosis
As stated above, the endocannibinoid receptors in our bodies are mostly in the central nervous system. Since MS is characterized by sclera of the myelin or sheath around the spinal cord, it makes sense that CBD oil would be of help. Patients have reported decreased pain and spasticity upon using CBD oil.
CBD Oil for Chronic Pain
CBD oil is a known analgesic, or painkiller, but is not known to cause overdose like opioid painkillers, and similarly does not cause addiction. In fact, in states where medical marijuana is legal, it has been found that there is a 25% drop in Opioid overdoses! Also in difficult to treat cases, often patients are finally able to find relief with CBD oil.
How CBD Oil Helps With Many Health Conditions
All Cannabinoids, including CBD, attach themselves to certain receptors in the body to produce their effects.
The human body produces certain cannabinoids on its own. It has two receptors for cannabinoids, called CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors.
CB1 receptors are found all around the body, but many of them are in the brain.
CB2 receptors are more common in the immune system. They have an effect on inflammation and pain.
It used to be thought that CBD acts on these CB2 receptors, but it appears now that CBD does not act on either receptor directly. Instead, it seems to influence the body to use more of its own cannabinoids.
