CBD oil is a type of oil produced from different species of cannabis. It’s active ingredient cannabidiol, is a class of chemicals that are naturally present in hemp plants. Even though it came from cannabis, it does not have the characteristic “highness” or intoxications that is created by D9 THC. THC or tetrahydrocannabinol is another type of cannabinoid found mostly in recreational and medical marijuana.

Below are 5 benefits of using high quality CBD oils:

1.  Relief from Anxiety

Some researchers studied the role of CBD oil to manage anxiety and noted positive results. The study suggest that CBD can positively alter how your brain responds to serotonin via its receptors.

One particular study noted that receiving 600mg of cannabidiol cbd oil helped individuals living with social anxiety. They were able to overcome the pensive feeling they had before giving a speech. Some other studies show that a lower dose CBD oil may deal with symptoms of anxiety by:

  • Decreasing stress
  • Reducing the physiological consequences of anxiety, like an amplified heartbeat.
  • Improving PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) symptoms

2.   Anti-seizure

CBD oil is already being used to treat rare forms of epilepsy in children. A FDA approved product known as Epidiolex is already on the market. CBD is also a prospective treatment agent for adults living with epilepsy.

Due to the federal government ban on plants containing thc, there is little research in this regard and it is still in its early stages. Several researchers are now investigating the efficacy of full-spectrum CBD oil because it contains a small amount of thc. It’s thought that the trace amount of thc with CBD can help in alleviating seizures, and also working on knowing its safety level. Anecdotally speaking there have not been any major side effects.

3.   Neuroprotective

Scientists are studying a brain receptors to help them understand how effective CBD products are in dealing with neurodegenerative diseases. CB1 and CB2 are the names of these receptors.

Experts are working on the application of CBD and thc oil as a treatment agent for:

  • Multiple sclerosis 
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Stroke
  • Parkinson’s disease

CBD oils counteract against the characteristic inflammation of neurodegenerative diseases. Further studies are required to thoroughly understand how CBD oils and other products affect neurodegenerative symptoms.

4.   Pain relief

The actions that CBD oil has on the receptors in your brain may help in the management of some severe forms of pain. Research has revealed that cannabis may provide some form of advantages if consumed as a chemotherapeutic agent.

  • Chronic pain
  • Arthritis
  • Ms pain
  • Spinal injuries

5.   Cancer Management and Treatment

From the studies already conducted and those still underway. The role played by CBD in cancer treatment is promising. It help with inflammation and alteration of the mode of reproduction of cells. CBD can effectively decrease the reproduction ability of a certain class of tumor cells.
