What can CBD help treat?
The short truth is, that because CBD comes in so many shapes and sizes, no one product will solve every issue. It’s crucial to do your research before you make your purchase. Here are some of the things that CBD may help treat:
It’s estimated that more than 60 percent of CBD users do or have taken it to relieve anxiety symptoms. Indeed, this is a very common reason for its use and many CBD products actively advertise their abilities to alleviate the problems different kinds of anxiety can bring. Managing stress levels, heart rate, sleep consistency and how your brain’s receptors respond to serotonin are all capabilities that CBD offers. Though still being tested, it’s said that there is the possibility that anxiety-induced insomnia may also benefit from CBD.
Epilepsy and Seizures
Up there with the largest reasons for CBD usage is to help reduce seizures, particularly in those suffering from epilepsy. Though dosages are still being tested, it has been suggested that regular doses of CBD can significantly help some sufferers and their symptoms during seizures, such as heart rate, brain rhythms and motor co-ordination.
CBD stops your body absorbing a compound called anandamide, that regulates how your body deals with pain. Increased levels of this compound in the bloodstream reduce the amount of pain that we feel. It’s not unknown that sufferers of MS pain, arthritis, chronic pain, and spinal cord injuries have all been known to use CBD to relieve some of the pain these conditions bring with them.
Inflammation occurs as a natural protective response when the body is harmed, such as after an injury, infection, or illness. The immune system unleashes immune cells to the affected area to protect it, causing redness and swelling. Inflammation, both chronic and acute, is common in many diseases and illnesses. Chronic inflammation often plays a role in conditions such as asthma, cancer, and diabetes. CBD has been proven to have good anti-inflammatory properties that may help in such cases.
But that’s not all…
Of course, this isn’t a comprehensive list of all the conditions that CBD can help with, and as always there is no guarantee that CBD will always help everybody. It’s best to do you research first, and if it’s for something serious, or you already take medication, it can be a good idea to consult your doctor beforehand.
