CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of over 100 chemicals that are derived from marijuana plants. However, CBD does not cause a high in users like psychoactive chemical THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) does, but rather it has a calming effect. Many methods exist to utilize CBD but infusing it with oil is one of the most common. CBD oil is created by extracting CBD straight from the marijuana plant and then mixing it with a “carrier” oil such as olive oil, hemp seed oil, or coconut oil. The oil is then infused in various medicines as well as commonly available products including lip balm, snacks, lotions, dog treats, and even more.
Interestingly, it has recently been discovered that the chemical has numerous health benefits that were previously unknown. Many other types of products that are widely available utilize CBD as a big selling point, and for good reason. Here are some of the health benefits of CBD. This is not a comprehensive list as more benefits are being discovered constantly from this “miracle” chemical.
Benefits of CBD products
Pain relief is one of CBD’s most well-known benefits and one that is often publicized. According to Healthline, marijuana has been used for pain relief as far back as 2900 B.C. CBD affects our body’s ECS system, reducing inflammation at these points. Conditions that CBD can treat include multiple sclerosis, arthritis, cancer, and more. Testing is continuing for CBD use with various health ailments, so be on the lookout for more information especially if you suffer from health conditions that could potentially make use of the chemical.
Anxiety and depression can take over your life at a moment’s notice. Luckily, these ailments can potentially be alleviated at least a little bit with the use of CBD. Being that it is more natural than most pharmaceutical products, CBD comes with many less side effects than prescription drugs. Many patients become interested in CBD as treatment for these mental health problems so that they don’t potentially succumb to addiction via prescription drugs. Testing has ramped up for anxiety and depression treatments via CBD and much more news is forthcoming.
A surprising effect of CBD is its potential uses as an acne treatment. Many people have acne, whether severe or non-severe. CBD is a good treatment for acne because of its anti-inflammatory properties, as discussed above. It also prevents inflammatory cytokines, which are a big cause of acne. Unfortunately, there has been a lack of testing on CBD’s affects on acne. Once more trials have been conducted, look forward to a new breakthrough acne treatment.
Possibly one of the most important developments from CBD testing has been its potential positive effects for hearth health. Tests that have been recently conducted have found that CBD may naturally lower blood pressure as opposed to manufactured pharmaceutical drugs. The reason for this reduction of stress and blood pressure is due to CBD’s anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and stress-reducing capabilities. Tests in regard to heart health are ongoing on humans and animals alike.
CBD is a chemical that we are only scratching the surface on. As CBD becomes more acceptable in society, we are sure to see it pop up at nearly every store and in many more products. There is so much room for potential uses and we are sure to keep discovering them. Other benefits of CBD that are in the early stages of testing and research include substance abuse treatment, anti-tumor effects, diabetes prevention, mental disorder treatment, and more. At ZBD Bed, we are proud to be a part of the CBD movement and look forward to the expanded use of this amazing chemical.
