Cannabis is still regarded primarily as a recreational drug in the world, and the use of cannabis products still raises a number of controversies. At the same time, however, there is increasing reference to the beneficial effects of the substances contained in this plant on human health.
Cannabidiol-containing oils (CBDs) are produced by extracting the active ingredients from cannabis plants and mixing with high-quality edible oil. CBD is among the cannabinoids that are naturally found in cannabis in the largest amounts, but it is not the compound that changes perception and puts the user in a "pause". This makes him better known as "related" tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is precisely because of these effects illegal.
CBD oil is suitable against anxiety. Research suggests that CBD could influence the way brain sensors respond to serotonin (a substance that affects mental health). Tiny brain receptors consist of protein and are located in cells where they respond to chemical stimuli and help the cell to function as it should. A study on this phenomenon concluded that a dose of 600 milligrams of CBD relieved people suffering from anxiety when speaking in public. Other studies that tested CBD in animals have shown that this cannabinoid can relieve anxiety by:
Positive effects of CBD oils
Epilepsy You may have read or heard of CBD as a possible remedy for epilepsy. However, clinical research on human patients is still under way in this area. We are testing how much CBD is able to reduce the number of epileptic seizures and how safe this treatment is.
Certain brain sensor studies have investigated the potential benefits of CBD in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. These cause a gradual loss of brain cells and a general impairment of nervous system function. The brain receptor on which cannabinoids act is called CB1, with studies focusing primarily on whether CBD and its preparations would be suitable for the treatment of:
Stroke CBD oils also have anti-inflammatory effects and it is known that neurodegenerative diseases are accompanied by inflammatory processes in the brain. However, further investigation into human patients is needed to gain a better understanding of the effects of cannabidiol and other cannabis substances on the brain and neurodegenerative processes.
Pain The effect of CBD on brain receptors could also be beneficial in trying to alleviate pain. Studies have shown positive results in cannabis use to alleviate the negative effects of chemotherapy. Other studies funded by the US National Institute of Health (NIH) also look at the effects of this and other cannabinoids on pain relief in:
arthrosis chronic pain pain in multiple sclerosis muscle pain pains associated with spinal injuries
Skin problems The overall positive effect of CBD on the immune system could function to prevent inflammation throughout the body. The results of the studies show that it helps in dermatitis or acne.
Oncological diseases Some studies have already focused on the role of cannabinoids in preventing cancer cell growth, but even in this case clinical research is under way.
Side effects of CBD oils CBD oil does not present any major risks for the user. Exceptionally, side effects may occur, including low blood pressure, insomnia or irritability. Unfortunately, in terms of both the negative and positive effects of CBD and its preparations, we are generally concerned about the lack of research involving more human patients.
