CBD oil is getting a lot of attention but more research is needed.
CBD oils have become all the rage lately, however are there any real health benefits that can be obtained from it? CBD, or Cannabidiol, oil is extracted from cannabis that contains chemicals that are found in marijuana plants. This doesn’t mean that it gives you the “high” effect because CBD oil does not contain THC, the chemical responsible for getting people high. Even though CBD does not cause any intoxication, there is still a lot of controversy around it. Nevertheless, many are becoming more aware of the possible benefits it could have on overall wellbeing. The following are potential health benefits of CBD oil:
- Anxiety management. Research has found that it can change the way your brain reacts to serotonin. A study found that a dose of 600 mg CBD oil helped people with social anxiety before having to give a speech
- Pain relief. Studies have found that CBD oil can be used to manage pain. It can provide benefits when taken after chemotherapy services. However, scientists believe that the anti inflammatory properties are the main contributors, and not necessarily that it helps with pain
- Reduces acne. As mentioned previously, CBD has anti inflammatory properties that are very beneficial when it comes to acne. It was found that it helps prevent activity in the sebaceous gland that is responsible for sebum production. Too much sebum production is what causes acne.
There are many ways you can incorporate CBD into your lifestyle such as oil, capsules, sprays, and creams. The form of CBD really depends on what it is being used for. CBD is not approved by the FDA and you should consult your physician before incorporating it into your lifestyle. CBD oil is not legal in all states, so be sure to check your state law’s.
