What Are the Health Benefits of CBD?

 

Purported CBD health benefits. Hemp oil and CBD products.The use of CBD for medicinal purposes is still relatively new and so there is not a lot of definitive research about CBD. However, there are many people around the world who report a range of benefits from using this naturally occurring substance. Here are some of the health benefits that users report when using CBD:

Pain Relief

Research suggests that CBD can reduce inflammation and pain. A case study showed that people with multiple sclerosis reported improvements in pain, walking and muscle spasms. Many animal studies have shown that CBD boosts serotonin levels, which plays an important role in maintaining your mood.

Cancer and Chemotherapy

Although research isn't conclusive, a number of studies suggest that CBD can reduce tumour growth. Many CBD users also report that CBD helps to reduce the neuropathic pain, nausea and vomiting that is associated with cancer and chemotherapy.

Anxiety

Research showed that people who took a significant dosage of CBD had much lower anxiety levels before public speaking. Participants also reported lower negative self-evaluation when on CBD treatment.

Epilepsy

CBD has been shown to be very effective in reducing certain types of epilepsy especially Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS).  Trials showed that CBD significantly reduced the rate of seizures by almost half.

Acne

Excessive sebum and inflammation causes acne breakouts. Studies showed that CBD prevented sebocytes in the body producing too much sebum which stopped inflammatory cytokines from activating.

Parkinson's Disease

Studies looking into CBD to relieve the symptoms of Parkinson's disease are positive. Individuals with the disease who took CBD reported much better quality of life and well-being. It has been suggested that CBD could also be effective for other neurodegenerative diseases such as Huntington’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
