list of benefits of cbd oil

Many other studies, both on animals and humans, have overwhelmingly concluded that CBD has immunosuppressive and anti-inflammatory properties which may make it a good choice for some autoimmune conditions or inflammation-related complaints. 16

Pretreatment with 300mg CBD significantly relieved anxiety in 57 healthy males who undertook a simulated public speaking test. However, dosages of 150mg CBD and 600mg CBD did not make any difference to the men’s anxiety levels. 7

Other research (both animal and human) has shown that CBD has anti-inflammatory effects, and it may relieve pain by this mechanism.
CBD can interact with other medications used to treat heart conditions or immunosuppressants so you should always talk with your doctor before taking CBD.

9. Nausea and vomiting

CBD can interact with other medications used for epilepsy and some serious side effects have been reported, notably, a decrease in liver function when given to people already taking valproate.

Conclusion: CBD may relieve anxiety before events such as public speaking but it is not known what the optimal dose is.

Unfortunately, few human trials investigating the use of CBD as a single agent to relieve pain exist, with most trials using a combination of CBD and THC to relieve pain. Notably, Health Canada has approved a combination medication that contains both THC and CBD in a 1:1 ratio for the relief of central nerve-related pain in multiple sclerosis, and cancer pain that is unresponsive to optimized opioid therapy.

Conclusion: CBD is beneficial for treating certain types of epilepsy.

CBD’s potential as a sleep aid could simply be due to its relaxing, anxiety-reducing effects [55].

Animal studies have produced largely encouraging results. In rodent models, CBD intake is associated with reduced brain damage, reduced beta-amyloid toxicity, and improved cognitive function, suggesting a potential future role in Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease [35, 36, 37].

In early studies, CBD has shown promising benefits for people with a variety of hard-to-treat conditions [5].

13) Inflammation and Autoimmunity

Our science team is put through the strictest vetting process in the health industry and we often reject applicants who have written articles for many of the largest health websites that are deemed trustworthy. Our science team must pass long technical science tests, difficult logical reasoning and reading comprehension tests. They are continually monitored by our internal peer-review process and if we see anyone making material science errors, we don’t let them write for us again.

According to some researchers, CBD may be helpful in a variety of inflammatory and pain-associated conditions. It acts on the body’s cannabinoid receptors, which in turn regulate inflammation, balance the immune system, and protect from oxidative stress [57].

In another trial of 214 children and adults with epilepsy, CBD was similarly linked to a reduction in seizures. The authors concluded that CBD was safe even at the maximum dose, which was double of the previous study [10].

One older study suggests that CBD and THC in combination are better than either alone for increasing appetite and reducing nausea. THC increases appetite, but its psychoactive effects are unpleasant to the patient. The authors suggest that CBD can reduce the psychoactivity of THC, without reducing appetite stimulation [60].

Other studies also demonstrate that phytocannabinoids have topical anti-inflammatory properties. Test-tube studies on cannabinoid and acne [78] found that CBD oil has an anti-inflammatory effect on the sebaceous glands and helps reduce skin oil production that triggers acne.

Summary: Partly Effective – Some academic research proves that CBD can protect against bone disease and broken bones.

Neurotherapeutics published a study [63] that claimed that neuropathic pain patients could benefit from cannabinoid treatment. According to the Journal of Experimental Medicine [64] , CBD suppresses neuropathic, and inflammatory pain by targeting a3 glycine receptors.

15.2 Achieve Clarity Not a High

JCJ Insight published a small study in 2017 [44] , where researchers observed that CBD oil could help prevent blood-pressure fluctuations caused by stress. Recent research has also linked CBD with more benefits for the heart as well as the circulatory system, and the ability to lower high blood pressure.

Additionally, a study published in Cellular Immunology in 2018 [43] found that CBD may alter T-cells, which are part of the immune system, after spinal cord injury. It is believed that abnormal activities of T-cells are involved in Lupus as well.

Summary: Partly Effective – Some academic research proves that CBD can potentially treat HIV-1 Infection.

Summary: No Proof – there is very little proof to show that CBD can create resilience to trauma and degeneration.
