BENEFITS OF CBD OIL FOR PEOPLE
CBD oil just as the name implies, contains a good concentration of cannabidiol which has been identified to elicit a wide range of medical benefits. Data available from clinical and scientific research has shown that CBD has a high potential of serving as an antioxidant, anticancer, anti-inflammatory, antidepressant and antimicrobial agents. This level of activity is largely attributed to the ability of CBD to interaction with the CB1 and CB2 receptors of the endocannabinoid system (ECS).
The ECS is a part of the central nervous system which controls cognitive responses such as appetite, hormonal balance, pain, rest and sleep. The ECS receptors are scattered all over the body, and the use of CBD oil in a topical or oral application can play lead to the following benefits;
1. Reduction of seizures in epileptic patients
The earliest forms of CBD use were in the control and reduction of seizures in epileptic patients. There is a high level of research which shows that CBD’s interaction with the ECS receptors can reduce the expression of seizures in epileptic patients.
The Journal of Epilepsy Research has published the research papers of various studies that involving people with Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome. In these studies CBD oil reduced the frequency of seizures.
2. Reduced exposure to anxiety and depression
Anxiety and depression have been identified as one of the leading causes of suicide among the young population. The interaction between the CBD and the ECS system can trigger the production of feel-good hormones, improves the function of the musculoskeletal system and relaxes the mind. CBD also serves as an antioxidant which comes in handy in neutralizing the harmful effects of free radicals, improving brain health and other cognitive functions. When combined with other phytocannabinoids such as cannabigerol (CBG) can improve eyesight and help people suffering from withdrawal syndrome.
3. Anticancer and anti-aging properties for skincare
CBD oil contains a high level of CBD which can limit the expression of aging signs and other medical conditions associated with it. The high level of activity expressed in phytocannabinoids to improve the production of endocannabinoids can protect the skin. It forms a protective layer which protects the skin.
4. It improves bone health
Chronic pain and bone health are one of the leading age-related challenges in the world. With the level of interaction between CBD and the ECS, bone health is improved, and all signs of chronic pain are taken care of.
5. Medication for pain relief
Contrary to what is experienced in other prescription drugs used in pain relief, CBD does not produce adverse forms of side effects and improves cellular activity thereby reducing the expression of chronic pains in the joints and muscles.
Please note: While CBD oil is extracted from the cannabis plant, adequate care must be taken not to confuse it with smoking cannabis. Cannabis may contain a high level of tetrahydrocannabinol which negatively affects the brain and makes you high.
