The Top Ten benefits of CBD oil and Studies On CBD Oil

The Real Truth About the 5 Top Benefits of CBD OIl

The word is out and we are finding out more and more about CBD Oil every day. The article below did a really good job outlining the top 5 benefits of CBD Oil.

There is imperial evidence from all the people who have tried it for anxiety are having stunning impacts on reducing this awful feeling that creeps up in those with who are anxious.

I personally know some people who deal with this and it can cause some serious issues in their ability to function. It has both physiological effects as well as psychoactive aspects that impact someone with anxiety.

The next big benefit is with sleep issues. I have chronic insomnia and for me personally, this has changed my life. I have been on CBD Full Spectrum oil for almost 2 years and it is nothing short of a miracle for me.

I ran of oil a few months ago, and within 8 weeks I was in a full-blown insomnia induced depression. The amazing thing is, when I finally got the oil, I pulled out of the depression in 2 days. I was sleeping great and within a week I was feeling amazing, happy, and fully functional.

So if you have any sort of sleep issues, I highly recommend you give this a try and see how it works. I am available to discuss this with you personally, simply fill out our contact form, or call us at 1-207-808-0892.

Mental Health Issues and CBD Oil

Now the third one talked about is Mental Health, this obviously covers a huge variety of issues, however, the study on schizophrenia was very interesting. I had not heard anything yet in this area. It will be interesting to hear more about this as time unfolds and more tests are done.

As I mentioned above, in my own experience I was shocked at how quickly I pulled out of my last depression upon taking the oil again. This speaks volumes and it appears many areas within Mental Illnesses, there is much to learn about the impact of CBD Oil and Mental Health.

Benefit 4 is with Epilepsy. This one has been administered and know for years. You can simply go on YouTube and find people utilizing the oil for their children. As a matter of fact, there is a company that is from the US that is working with almost 400 children in Mexico that have epilepsy and they are having wonderful results. I am hopefully going to visit there in 2 weeks and see first hand the results of utilizing CBD Oil with children with epilepsy. Now the FDA has classified a specific drug in cahoots with a pharmaceutical company that has created the first CBD Drug. This has multiple problems associated with it that I will address in another article.

Here is a fantastic older Ted Talk on a non-profit working out of Colorado, way before anyone knew about CBD oil. You will be laughing, crying and cheering within 20 minutes ?

Epilepsy and CBD Oil is Well Know
Mental Health Issues and CBD Oil

Now the last top benefit with CBD Oil is Pain management. This one is more difficult to nail down. There is no question that CBD oil is working in some areas of pain management. This one is a bit more finicky on how it works. There are tons of testimonials that share great pain relief for some. There are some cases of pain management where the THC component combined with the CBD has a much better impact on pain management. If it is basic muscle or joint pain? Then CBD Oil is very good. There are lots of creams and roll on freeze sprays coming into the market.

Personally I have not had great success using it this way, however, I have been dealing with sciatic nerve pain wish is a specific type caused by a bulged disc, deepening on the severity, nerve pain seems to be better served using THC with CBD, or just straight medical marijuana to deal with some pain issues. Still much to learn on the pain management side.

So this article below, he did a really good job explaining and sharing some studies as well.


CBD For Anxiety Reduction

Anxiety can be crippling. I don’t have generalized social anxiety, but I, like anyone else, know what it feels like to be anxious about something. It happens to everyone. Now imagine feeling that all the time, particularly when it matters most—around other people. The average person doesn’t consider the import and impact of anxiety on a person’s well-being. If CBD can reduce anxiety, that might just be its most important feature. Does it?

Before a simulated public speaking event, people with generalized social anxiety disorder were either given 600 mg of CBD or a placebo. Those who received CBD reported less anxiety, reduced cognitive impairment, and more comfort while giving the speech. Seeing as how people without social anxiety disorder claim public speaking as their biggest fear, that CBD helped people with social anxiety disorder give a speech is a huge effect.

This appears to be legit. A placebo-controlled trial is nothing to sniff at.

CBD For Sleep

A 2017 review provides a nice summary of the effects of CBD on sleep:

In insomnia patients, 160 mg/day of CBD increased sleep time and reduced the number of arousals (not that kind) during the night.

Lower doses are linked to increased arousals and greater wakefulness.

High dose CBD improved sleep; adding THC reduced slow wave sleep.

In preliminary research with Parkinson’s patients, CBD reduced REM-related behavioral disorder—which is when you basically act out your dreams as they’re happening.

More recently, a large case series (big bunch of case studies done at once) was performed giving CBD to anxiety patients who had trouble sleeping. Almost 80% had improvements in anxiety and 66% had improvements in sleep (although the sleep improvements fluctuated over time).

Mental Health

While its psychoactive counterpart THC has been embroiled in controversial links with psychosis and schizophrenia for decades, CBD may be an effective counterbalancing force for mental health.

In patients with schizophrenia, six weeks of adjunct treatment with cannabidiol resulted in lower rates of psychotic symptoms and made clinicians more likely to rate them as “improved” and made researchers more likely to rate them as “improved” and not “severely unwell.” There were also improvements in cognitive performance and overall function. It seems the “adjunct” part of this study was key, as other studies using cannabidiol as the only treatment mostly failed to note improvements.

This was placebo controlled, so it makes a good case for CBD hemp oil as adjunct treatment (in addition to regular therapy) in people with schizophrenia.

Among 11 PTSD patients who took an average of 50 mg of CBD per day for 8 weeks, 10 (90%) experienced a 28% improvement in symptoms. No one dropped out or complained about side effects. CBD seemed to particularly benefit those patients who had issues with nightmares.

This is promising but preliminary. This was an 11-person case study, not a placebo-controlled trial.


A recent review of four human trials lays out the evidence: More than a third of all epilepsy patients experienced 50% or greater seizure reductions with just 20 mg of CBD. The effect of CBD on seizure activity is so widely acknowledged and understood that the only FDA-approved CBD-based product is Epidiolex, a plant-based CBD extract used to treat seizures in patients with Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome.

CBD for epilepsy is legit. Side note: I wonder how CBD would combine with ketogenic dieting for epilepsy control.


By far the biggest draw for medical consumers of CBD is its supposed ability to nullify pain.

In one study, researchers induced arthritis in rats with intra-articular injections, then gave them CBD. Rats given CBD were able to put more weight on their joints and handle a heavier load before withdrawing. Local CBD reduced nerve damage.

That’s great for pet rats. What about people?

There actually isn’t a lot of strong data on pain management using CBD by itself. Far more robust is the evidence for using CBD with THC for pain. According to this group of researchers, the two compounds exert “constituent synergy” against neuropathic pain.One study found that low doses of each were more effective combined than high doses of either alone in neuropathic cancer-related pain. Another gave a THC/CBD oromucosal spray to otherwise treatment-resistant neuropathy patients, finding that the spray reduced pain, improved sleep, and lessened the severity of symptoms.

Anything Else?

Anecdotal evidence for pain relief and other benefits with CBD is vast. Chris Kresser, a practitioner and researcher I trust, swears by it. I have employees who use it quite frequently, reporting that it improves their sleep, hones their focus, reduces pain, speeds recovery, and reduces anxiety. These things are always hard to evaluate, but I can say that my people do great work, and I have zero reason to distrust them.

Benefits Of Cannabidiol (CBD) Oil That Will Blow Your Mind!


Every cloud has a silver lining. And everything ‘bad’ has a ‘good’ side to it. So does cannabis! Along with a 100 harmful cannabinoids, the Cannabis sativa plant contains a less psychoactive compound called cannabidiol or CBD.

Researchers have found therapeutic properties associated with CBD extracts in recent years. One such beneficial preparation is CBD oil.

Read on to know about the science, benefits, and side effects of this oil.

Table Of Contents

    What Is CBD?

    Cannabidiol or CBD is a phytocannabinoid that is produced in the Cannabis sativa plant. It is gaining much attention among researchers due to its therapeutic effects because it does NOT have psychoactive properties.

    Why Is CBD Not A Psychoactive Compound?


    There are two types of receptors on the brain and immune system cells – CB1 and CB2. Psychoactive compounds like tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) bind to these receptors and cause the typical euphoric effects.

    But our hero ingredient, CBD, has a much lower affinity to CB1 and CB2 receptors than THC. So, even if CBD manages to bind to these receptors, there is little or no euphoric effect.


    And that is why extracts like CBD oil are getting popular among the medical community to treat neurological disorders.

    Let’s get to know the CBD oil up close!

    What Is CBD Oil?


    CBD oil is prepared by extracting various cannabinoids from the Cannabis or hemp plant into a solvent, like alcohol.

    Upon evaporation of this enriched alcohol, what is left behind is a mixture of cannabinoids – one among them is CBD.

    It is processed further to obtain a pure concentrate of CBD oil. This oil is then diluted in carrier oils and made fit for human consumption.

    Out of many different Cannabis preparations, CBD oil seems to be the best for medical administration since it has neuroprotective, anti-inflammatory, anxiolytic, and antioxidant effects on your body.


    Remember, it does not give you a ‘high.’

    Did You Know?

    • Consuming CBD can get you off marijuana addiction.
    • The effect of CBD remains in your body for about 3-5 hours.

    Now that you know how it is prepared, you’d want to know what precisely CBD oil does to your body. Ain’t I right?

    Scroll down to look at a few chosen therapeutic properties of CBD oil in detail.

    What Are The Benefits Of CBD Oil?

    1. Treats Epilepsy And Seizures

    When administered in small and regulated doses (12-25 mg), CBD oil exhibits an anticonvulsant effect on your brain. This means that it reduces the intensity of seizures and improves seizure control. In some adolescents, it has been found to regularize sleep patterns and behavioral changes.

    CBD also has fewer adverse effects when compared to THC. You cannot develop a tolerance for CBD on its repeated administration, and there are hardly any withdrawal symptoms (1).

    2. Has Anxiolytic And Antidepressant Effects

    Children and adolescents with anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) who used CBD oil showed remarkable results.

    This oil can reduce anxiety, depression, treat insomnia, and manage panic attacks caused by stress in children (2).

    Research in this field is yet to establish CBD’s mode of action on the brain, but there is enough promising data to prove the impact of this oil on such patients.

    3. Can Reduce Chronic Pain

    Chronic pain, especially neuropathic pain, caused due to various reasons can be the worst nightmare of your life.

    People suffering from chronic back, neck, or shoulder blade pain, menstrual cramps, and migraines sometimes fail to respond to routine opioid painkillers. In such cases, CBD oil with traces of THC comes as a blessing in disguise.

    Historically, CBD has been used to provide relief to people suffering from migraines, tension-type headaches, and chronic daily headaches (3).

    These cannabinoids are potent analgesics and can reduce pain even when applied topically to wounds (4). They are so targeted that CBD extracts are now being considered to treat chemotherapy-associated chronic pain since they have very few side effects (5).

    4. Has Anti-Inflammatory Effects

    Most of the diseases today cause inflammation at some stage. Diabetes, arthritis, liver cirrhosis, renal failure, stomach ulcers, irritable bowel disease (IBD), colitis, hypersensitivity allergies, skin diseases (like psoriasis), and many autoimmune disorders arise due to inflammation.

    Administration of CBD in various forms has been found to decrease inflammation and injury and reduce their severity in animals (6). Though it is still in the clinical trials stage, CBD oil with THC is a potential alternative for improving the quality of life in some of the autoimmune diseases listed above.

    5. Reduces Hypertension And Protects Your Heart

    CBD and its extract have multiple effects on the cardiovascular system. Since hypertension is predominant in the world’s population today, CBD has been widely studied in this perspective.

    CBD lowers resting blood pressure (BP), fluctuations of BP in response to anxiety, and cold stress. It also improves your heart health and keeps ischemic attacks and chest pain (angina) at bay because of its anxiolytic and analgesic properties (7).

    6. Effectively Treats Side Effects Associated With Cancer

    Finding a cure for cancer is the billion-dollar problem that everyone in this world wants to solve. Don’t you think so?

    Chemotherapy is one solution offered to decelerate its growth. However, it has multiple side effects like nausea, dehydration, loss of appetite, sluggishness, and weak immunity.

    Although CBD oil cannot cure cancer, it can prevent chemotherapy from making your life worse. This is because CBD can activate specific receptors on the brain cells that produce antiemetic or anti-nausea like effects (8).

    7. Lowers Incidence Of Diabetes

    Due to its anti-inflammatory property, administration of CBD reduces the incidence of diabetes significantly.

    Also, it leads to lower levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines (cellular messengers) like IFN-gamma and TNF-alpha in the blood plasma. In an experiment conducted on mice, histological examination of the treated ones showed reduced inflammation of pancreatic beta-cells (9).

    Though the data is insufficient and not conclusive, research indicates that CBD derivatives can inhibit and delay the onset of diabetes and associated inflammation.

    8. Controls Neurodegenerative And Neurological Disorders

    Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Tourette syndrome, and other neurodegenerative and motor disorders can be controlled by taking regulated doses of CBD oil.

    It improves quality of life, brings about behavioral changes, and reduces anxiety, panic attacks, insomnia, progressive memory loss (dementia), and post-traumatic stress in these patients.

    In motor disorders patients aged 1-17 years, CBD oil reduces the intensity of spasms, improves spasticity, and controls myalgia (muscle pains) due to its analgesic, antispasmodic, and anti-inflammatory properties (10).

    9. Aids Weight Management

    Smoking marijuana affects the calorie intake of a person. The cannabinoids in the plant bind to the CB receptors and increase cravings. Also, a person on high doses of marijuana tends to relish food more and eats more often between meals (11).

    This property might be beneficial to people who are underweight, malnourished or affected with HIV-AIDS or cancer, which cause loss of appetite. Having CBD oil or marijuana might help them put on some pounds.

    On the other hand, if your body’s cannabinoid producing cascade (yes, you have one in your own body too!) is studied, you’d know that the same CB receptors are responsible for weight loss and anorexia (12).

    On the whole, how exactly CBD oil helps in managing your body weight needs to be studied further.

    10. Is A Skin Care Expert

    Who’d have thought marijuana could fight acne!

    CBD inhibits the lipogenic action of compounds like arachidonic acid, testosterone, and linoleic acid on your skin cells. It also has antiproliferative and anti-inflammatory effects on sebocytes (actively secreting epithelial cells) and hence stops acne from spreading (13).

    CBD also has potent antioxidant properties and can, therefore, fight oxidative and chemical stress by scavenging free radicals in the blood (14). An interplay of all these effects results in younger looking, wrinkle-free, supple, clear, spotless, and radiant skin.

    All said and done, one thing is clear – CBD oil has multiple unexplored benefits that need years of research and understanding.

    But, if you still wish to use CBD oil for its incredible benefits, here are some points you might want to bear in mind:

    • How: Mode Of Administration
    1. Pure CBD (hemp) oil can be consumed orally in small doses as a nutritional supplement as it has good fats (EFA), vitamins E and A, and many minerals in abundance.
    2. CBD ethanol extract is also available in various carrier oils like coconut, hemp seed, and olive oils.
    • How Much: Intake Per Day
    1. The intake of CBD is primarily dependent on the BMI (Body Mass Index) of the individual and the cause that’s being addressed.
    2. Variable doses of CBD oil or extracts ranging from 1 mg/day to about a 1000 mg/day are considered safe.
    3. Each one of us responds to a fixed dose of CBD differently. Do not try to self-medicate and formulate a dosage without medical supervision.


    It is illegal to use or procure CBD or related products in some parts of the world. Consult your physician and/or psychologist to decide the optimal dosage. Follow legal procedures, if any, to procure the best and purest CBD oil.

    And now, coming to the obvious question we all have…

    What Are The Side Effects Of Using CBD Oil?

    After all, CBD is still a component of marijuana. There are chances of having side effects when you take CBD oil in high doses.

    Many a time, the oil itself might have traces of psychoactive components like THC. CBD oil might not give you a ‘high’ but can result in any or all of the symptoms listed below:

    • Diarrhea
    • Drowsiness
    • Vomiting
    • Nausea
    • Low blood pressure
    • Dry mouth
    • Anorexia
    • Insomnia
    • Psychotic effects (only in extremely high doses and/or mixed doses with THC)

    This is why medical supervision is a must.

    In A Nutshell…

    Though there’s a tremendous need for research to back it, cannabidiol oil is geared to gain more attention in medicine because of the promising effects it has on our body and the endocannabinoid system (ECS).

    Consult your doctor for any questions regarding the suitable make, dosage, instructions, and symptoms of an overdose of CBD in your body.

    Formulations containing CBD oil are relatively expensive and have deleterious effects if abused. Again, moderation is key.

    Top Ten benefits of CBD oil Video

    In the video below you are going to see a really good explanation of the top benefits of CBD Oil. Most people are still not familiar with what CBD Oil is and what it does. This is definitely going to change moving forward.  There is a great awareness coming around CBD Oil now and results and research are starting to also show up.

    If you are not aware of what CBD Oil Benefits are, then the short video below is going to give you a very good quick education on this. So first off, what is CBD? CBD is cannabidiol, that is a plant chemical compound that is extracted and found in the cannabis plant. Even though cannabidiol comes from the marijuana plant, it is NOT usually mixed with THC which is the psychic active part of the plant that people have used for a long time to get high. CBD has been shown to have outstanding medicinal impacts without the “high” of THC.

    Watch This Video below For The Best benefits of CBD oil.

    This guy does a really good job explaining how CBD works and the various benefits of CBD oil.


    One of the biggest benefits of CBD oil is the impact it is having on people who deal with anxiety.  A 2010 study found that Cannabidiol had a significant impact on people who were dealing with anxiety including social anxiety disorder. Using fairly sophisticated equipment, they were able to determine through brain scans that the actual blood flow had changed in the areas of the brain where they believe anxiety disorders are found. Another study in 2015 has also found that CBD Oil could be effective on a whole host of anxiety related issues including OCD, PTSD and panic disorders. This is stunning news and we can not wait for further studies to reveal what we believe we know now.

    Great benefits of CBD oil on the skin

    Another great benefit of CBD Oil is the impact it has on the skin. It has been reported that since CBD oil helps in producing lipids, that it will actually work on things like acne and dry skin. There are so many components to the CBD oil if it is of a high quality that it also is loaded with anti-oxidants, which will help in the wrinkles issue and aging lines. A side benefit is that if there is less stress in your life, then this will also reduce the potential for breakouts and skin issues which are common when people are stressed.

    There are now also studies coming out that are indicating that CBD oil may prevent heart disease as well. This could range from warding off coronary heart disease, heart attacks, and stokes. In 2014, the School of Medicine at the University of Nottingham did a study that shows or indicates that CBD Oil causes blood vessels to relax and open. This has been known to actually lower blood pressure and create better circulation to keep your heart healthy.

    At this point, there is still a ton of research to do around CBD, and unfortunately, when the medical profession gets involved it is a slow and laborious process. However, since CBD oil is legal over the counter in 49 states, including Maine. That people can begin using this now to impact their lives. There are plenty of people know using CBD oil with amazing results.

    If you do decide to try CBD, it is always wise to contact your doctor first before taking CBD Oil. However, as you can see there are many great benefits of CBD oil and definitely worth looking into.
