CBD & Its Benefits
Increasing relevance and awareness of CBD, an abbreviation of cannabidiol, has led to many striving to learn further about the effects of the compound. In particular, what has piqued the interest of the public to CBD are the possible health benefits through its usage. Several studies testing CBD on patients for different symptoms have shown promising results. CBD has been linked to and touted as an effective form of treatment for various chronic pains, some forms of childhood epilepsy syndromes, and anxiety.
Safeness of CBD
CBD, a component of marijuana, does not produce any notable effects of intoxication or feelings of being “high” when used. This non-psychoactive effect is notable because the lack of a “high” reduces the risk of addiction or dependency. A report done by the World Health Organization says that they did not find CBD to be an abuse risk, “CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential.”
Health Benefits of CBD
- Childhood Epilepsy Syndromes – CBD is increasingly being prescribed as a viable method of managing seizures. Various studies have presented promising results regarding CBD’s capability in treating certain childhood epilepsy syndromes like Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome. Both syndromes are notoriously difficult to treat as they do not respond to traditional anti-seizure medications. Research done at several different publications showed that CBD lessened the number of seizures and in certain instances even stopped them from occurring at all. While further research is being done, the FDA has approved of CBD-derived solutions to treat serious cases of Epilepsy.
- Anxiety – With reported cases of anxiety rising over the years many are looking for affordable and effective options to address the issue. An increasingly common method of treating anxiety has been through the use of CBD. Some accounts have shown CBD to have reduced anxiety-related symptoms. Similarly, CBD has also been used by those suffering from insomnia with research indicating that it may help patients more easily fall and stay asleep.
- Chronic Pains – It’s believed that the use of CBD triggers a response with the endocannabinoid system and its receptors that can produce pain-relieving effects. Several studies have shown CBD to be particularly helpful in treating numerous types of chronic pain. Specifically, preliminary research has indicated CBD’s efficacy in reducing pain and inflammation caused by arthritis when applied on the skin. A different study even showed CBD to be potent in limiting some of the most difficult types of chronic pain to treat like inflammatory and neuropathic pain.
