Though indagation into the benefits of using cannabidiol (CBD) oil is still in its infancy. Much has been done and studies have begun to show that CBD oil appears to be therapeutically effective when used to treat a wide range of conditions.
What is CBD oil?
The oil is a compound taken from cannabis plants. It is produced by extraction and diluted with a carrier oil (coconut oil). CBD oil contains little or no Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), this means it is not classified as a psychotropic drug and is safe to take.
Emerging as a very sought-after alternative medicine, it is available in the form of oil, but it is also available in products such as capsules, creams, and soft gels.
Here are a few distinctive benefits of using CBD oil:
The Endocannabinoid system found present inside the human body produces cannabinoids identical to the ones present in the cannabis plant. So when CBD is consumed, it interfaces with the endocannabinoid system and this divine interaction reduces and most times eliminates the feeling of pain.
For fitness enthusiasts, CBD oil is a great way to combat pain and fatigue. This is because of its tremendous anti-inflammatory properties, which increase blood flow ensuring a smooth supply of oxygen to the entire body.
For the lovely women that suffer from premenstrual syndrome, CBD oil is the solution for your discomfort and pain associated with PMS. A woman’s body produces prolactin, which may responsible for the symptoms of PMS i.e. bloating, cramps, abdominal pain, and mood swings. CBD oil is a rich source of Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA), and when consumed is produces prostaglandin that alleviates the symptoms of PMS.
2. Epilepsy Treatment
The rare neurological disorder called Epilepsy causes seizures and delays in the brain’s development. The Big Pharmaceutical companies all have drugs on the market to help reduce seizures, but CBD oil is the natural remedy of choice.
The FDA's approval of a CBD-based medicine, strongly suggests that CBD oil may help with the symptoms of epilepsy. CBD has been used to treat people with rare or severe epilepsy, and studies have shown that it can reduce the number of seizures.
3. Insomnia Treatment
The world is now a fast-paced reality. Deadlines having to be met, dollar bills being chased to take care of mounting bills. The rat-race has forced people to cut down on their sleep time which in itself can lead to insomnia.
Current psychiatric reports suggest that medium to high doses of CBD oil can cause sedative effects. It alters your sleeping schedule and reduces the time spent in the initial two stages of sleep. Prolonging the time you get in the third stage called the non-REM sleep, ensuring you get sufficient rest.
All of this suggests that it can be used to treat insomnia in people who have difficulty sleeping. Another factor in CBD oil is its relaxing properties that can help people who are suffering from sleep deprivation when suffering from anxiety and stress.
For centuries all over the world, people have been using cannabis for the many therapeutic benefits. Enjoy these unknown reasons you might need to use CBD oil for a healthy and vital life.
