People use CBD for so many different reasons and there have always been more positive experiences than reported side effects! But, the usage of CBD is still considered to be a questionable thing. Different countries have different laws regulating CBD usage, some have it completely legalized, some are still slowly going through the process of legalization, while in most cannabis is still completely illegal! But science has answers for people who use or thinking about starting to use cannabis as a medical product. So, whether you are a long time user or just a beginner, the main thing you should know is that CBD stands for cannabidiol – the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis. The CBD is an essential component of medical marijuana and it is derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant. According to a report from the World Health Organization, CBD does not cause a “high.” There is a strong scientific evidence that CBD has helped with various of health issues. It has been proven to be effective in treating childhood epilepsy syndromes, such as Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS). These syndromes typically don’t respond to antiseizure medications, but there are many studies where CBD was able to reduce the number of seizures, and in some cases even stop them completely. CBD has been proven to help people fall asleep faster and easier, so it is frequently being used to help people who suffer from anxiety attacks and for patients who suffer from insomnia. CBD is also used fro treating different types of chronic pain, such as lowering pain and inflammation due arthritis, multiple sclerosis and neuropathic pain. The way CBD helps with chronic pain is by impacting endocannabinoid receptor activity, reducing inflammation and interacting with neurotransmitters. Some people even use CBD oil to treat acne thanks to its remarkable anti-inflammatory qualities. Even though scientists wouldn’t advise using CBD as a treatment for cancer, they say it definitely shows effectiveness in alleviating cancer-related symptoms. CBD may also help reduce nausea and vomiting, which are among the most common chemotherapy-related side effects for those with cancer. There are studies that show that CBD helps the human heart and the circulatory system, including the ability to lower high blood pressure. There are just so many already known things connected to cannabis, so many positive experiences reported and so many amazing health benefits scientifically proven, but there is also so much more to be yet researched and it is a fact no one should ignore. Being safe and using CBD carefully is of an immense importance!
