As most of you may know, CBD oil comes from the Cannabis plant, which has been used for medicine for several centuries.  According to some accounts, it was a fairly common medicine used in the United States by doctors for some time.  Because of how it works in the body, the cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant can benefit us in different ways when used properly.  

 

Pain

Studies have shown that CBD may help reduce chronic pain by impacting endocannabinoid receptor activity, reducing inflammation and interacting with neurotransmitters.[1]

Helps reduce anxiety and depression  CBD oil has shown promise for helping both depression and anxiety.  It has been used to safely treat insomnia and anxiety in children with post-traumatic stress disorder. [2]   CBD has also shown antidepressant-like effects in several animal studies.  These qualities are linked to CBD’s ability to act on the brain’s receptors for serotonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates mood and social behavior.

Beneficial to the Heart  Research shows several benefits of CBD oil for the heart and circulatory system, including the ability to lower high blood pressure. One recent study treated nine healthy men with one dose of 600 mg of CBD oil and found it reduced resting blood pressure, compared to a placebo. It is suggested that the stress- and anxiety-reducing properties of CBD are responsible for its ability to help lower blood pressure.[3]

Shown to have neuroprotective properties  Researchers believe that CBD’s ability to act on the endocannabinoid system and other brain signaling systems may provide benefits for those with neurological disorders. One of the most studied uses for CBD is in treating neurological disorders like epilepsy and multiple sclerosis. Several studies have shown promising results.

Sleep  Many have also had good results with sleeping better from using CBD oil.  This could be because of it helping anxiety and depression.  We all need a good nights sleep, so this can be helpful for anyone struggling in this area.
