CBD Benefits

General Benefits

 

  • Suppresses muscle spasms

Muscle spasms are most simply put as, involuntary or sudden contractions of the body's muscles.  This is most frequently found in athletes or people who maintain an active daily routine, however; muscle spasms can occur with anyone. This extreme uncomfort is commonly recognized as a "Charlie Horse" or a fluttering sensation on a particular muscle. More severely, especially in cases of sciatica, muscle spasms can be so painful they either halt any body movement and even cause severe injuries if not tended to. If you are a victim of multiple sclerosis, sciatica, or even prone to the overuse of muscles, CBD sustains as your most natural healing method. Research shows, that with CBD, people who suffer from muscle spasms have seen the new opportunity to suppress these contractions, and even eliminate them with certain dosages. The most favorable benefit to using this cannabinoid, opposed to THC, is that it is completely holistic and doesn't cause psychiatric effects.

 

  • Tranquilizing psychosis management

Opposed to the cannabinoid, THC, CBD does not target the brain making one feel "high" or causing altered thoughts. Instead, it creates holistic healing by targeting the full body for calming effects. However; research has shown that cannabidiol has produced many antipsychotic effects, while still not making one feel "high". This becomes most beneficial for managing cognitive behavior disorders including schizophrenia. While CBD can manage other psychotic disorders, it's impact on schizophrenia highlights the extreme depths it can go, for healing. Schizophrenia is a mental illness that distorts a person's thinking, which can include: hearing voices, hallucinations, depression, difficulty in maintaining interest in social activities - all which CBD can help with either in total, or individually for less serious case purposes. It is truly mesmerizing how patients who are victims to mental illnesses, find relief in something as natural and safe as cannabidiol. While some pharmaceutical drugs can help with disorders like these, they normally have major side effects, while CBD has none.

 

  • Reduces pain and inflammation

As pain can be a side affect from a wide variety of issues related to the human body, it's most fitting for CBD to be of help from it's organic healing nature. When taken, CBD connects to certain receptors that affect others indirectly, ultimately touching problematic areas like chronic back pain. Another increasingly successful benefit, is it's anti-inflammatory nature that normally induces some time of pain. This can be seen most frequently through arthritis victims. Through research, the benefits of using  CBD products arise when understanding the alternative's addictive characteristics, like opioids, and seeing the extensive success stories that encourage society's decision to use the more natural method.

 

  • Reduces anxiety

While we don't necessarily see anxiety as a positive topic - we must understand it's positive nature in a sense that it is our response of concern when dealing with situational events or ideas. With that in mind, anxiety becomes an issue when we become either over-concerned on a topic, or allow topics that should not be of concern - a concern. This extensive concern and worry creates anxiety disorders that are unfortunately found in nearly 40 million adults in the United States alone. Most frequently, pharmaceuticals are prescribed to combat a variety of anxiety disorders; however, some become unbeneficial, addictive, and even harmful. Some of the most familiar tranquilizers include Xanax and Valium. With extensive research and success stories, CBD products have claimed their excellent combat performance in detiorating anxiety in these, to name a few, disorders: Panic, OCD, Social Phobia, PTSD, Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), and mild to moderate depression.

 

  • Reduces nausea and vomiting

Classified as a defense mechanism, the body induces nausea and vomiting to counteract the intake of toxic compounds that could be harmful to the body. However, sometimes it can be related to motion sickness and even a mental reaction to an external situation, for example; this can occur if someone has a weak stomach to seeing blood or injury-related accidents. With research and discovery of the endocannabinoid system (ECS), it has been discovered that CBD can actually counteract this annoying defense mechanism by it's complex network of cannabinoid receptors having a direct role in controlling vomiting and nausea. It was found that CBD indirectly activates a unique compound known as 5-hydroxytryptamiine-1A (5-HT1A) that significantly reduces the sensation of nausea and its subsequent vomiting reflex. In more extreme cases, the use of CBD can reduce this reflex caused by chemotherapy or certain pharmaceutical drugs and sometimes almost work better than prescribed anti-nausea drugs.

 

  • Reduces blood sugar levels

The topic of rising blood sugar levels becomes most apparent with people diagnosed with diabetes. According to American Diabetes Association, the rise in blood sugar levels occurs when the body is unable to generate insulin which aids in converting starch and sugar into usable energy. With close experimentation and research, it was found that CBD creates cells which trigger the pancreas to increase the volume and cell mass. This beneficially allows the Diabetes Type-1 patient to maintain the normal sugar level in their blood. While this becomes increasingly monumental to people dealing with high blood sugar levels, CBD can also aid the psychiatric and inflammatory effects it induces to create a more holistic and balanced body.

 

  • Stimulates appetite

It is known that the cannabinoid, THC, has a strong reputation for creating the "munchies" and stimulating appetite. While we've learned that CBD is not the same as THC in many ways, CBD does replicate some beneficial characteristics like stimulating appetite, while still maintaining it's respectable image. For the people who suffer from medical conditions that incur the loss of appetite, CBD has elevated as a monumental solution. When there is an imbalance due to medical conditions, like chemotherapy, and the immune system is compromised, many things can occur making it difficult to achieve daily tasks - like eating. Thankfully, the neuroprotectant and antioxidant, CBD, interacts with certain receptors to bring the body back into balance and calms the central nervous system in the mean time. By this, CBD indirectly calms the panicking signals trying to compensate this empty feeling of loss of appetite, and then calms the digestive system to stimulate appetite.
