When I started taking CBD oil and sharing the news, I realized the stigma around all cannabis and hemp-based/derived products.
I usually get the question: “does it make you high?” or the assumption: “you must be a cannabis user then.”
On the other hand, sometimes, when I share I am taking CBD oil, others take it too and feel relieved somebody else understands and is experiencing the medicinal benefits of this oil.
For this blog post, I will be referring to several trusted sources and research publications.
What is CBD oil?
Cannabidiol is just one of more than 100 chemicals in the cannabis Sativa plant. This chemical is not psychoactive like THC. In 2017 the World Health Organization (WHO) published a report mentioning that naturally recurring CBD is safe and well-tolerated in humans, not associated with adverse public health effects, does not induce physical dependence, and is not associated with any abuse potential.
The CBD oil I take is of exceptionally high quality, and finding the proper manufacturer is critical when deciding to start taking this supplement.
Obtained by CO2 supercritical extraction from the hemp plants (naturally low in THC and high on CBD) allows the full spectrum of cannabinoids in the cannabis Sativa plant and terpenes, fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals to be present in the product.
Some of the benefits of CBD oil include:
- May help relieve pain: Thanks to our body’s natural endocannabinoid system and its great job helping regulate several functions like sleep, pain sensation, and immune response, when taking CBD oil, there’s a “conversation” happening between the two resulting in binding the good stuff of the oil into our nervous system.
- The results are reducing inflammation, reduced nerve and back pain, and reduction of symptoms of rheumatic diseases.
- Could reduce symptoms related to mental health disorders: Anxiety, PTSD, social anxiety, and other anxiety-related disorders,
- May alleviate cancer-related symptoms: More research is needed, but you can check some studies by clicking here and here.
- It may have neuroprotective properties: it aids with brain signaling systems for MS and epilepsy. Improves quality of life for Parkinson’s.
- May benefit heart health: Disorders derived from high blood pressure. More studies are ongoing but very promising.
- Many more potential benefits: antipsychotic effects, substance abuse treatment, glioblastoma symptoms, and improvement in sleep.
Some interactions with medications have been shown to cause fatigue, sedation, or drowsiness. Ask your doctor if you take medicines before taking CBD oil to avoid adverse effects.
