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.
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 ?
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).
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.
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.
