- Pain Management
CBD products have rapidly gained traction as an alternative to traditional pain medication, and can effectively treat pain related to arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and migraines. CBD is able to inhibit the transmission of pain signals without causing a dependency or tolerance. This makes it an excellent alternative to opioid drugs, as it is non-addictive.
- Side-Effect Free Insomnia Treatment
Nearly 60 million Americans suffer from insomnia. Treatment often involves over-the-counter sleep aids or prescription sleeping pills, which are not always viable options. OTC drugs (e.g. melatonin) are not always effective at inducing sleepiness, and are intended only for short-term use. Sleeping pills, while effective, can have undesirable side effects such as daytime drowsiness and gastrointestinal discomfort.
CBD oil has proved to be highly effective at inducing a relaxed, sleepy state, and rarely produces any side effects. Researchers believe CBD works to treat symptoms of insomnia by reducing chronic pain and easing anxiety.
- Mitigates Mental and Neurological Disorders
CBD acts on serotonin receptors in the brain, which affect mood. The symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, and anxiety have all been shown to be effectively reduced with the appropriate dose of CBD oil.
Moreover, CBD has antiseizure properties, which makes it highly beneficial for treating neurological disorders like epilepsy and multiple sclerosis. The risk of negative side effects is very low.
Scientists have linked CBD with benefits to the heart and circulatory system, specifically as it pertains to high blood pressure. It’s believed that the anti-anxiety and analgesic properties of CBD relaxes the blood vessels, thereby lowering blood pressure.
