You may have been hearing about CBD Oil lately, whether it be a news story or a friend who takes it for pain. Whatever the case may be, it has gained notoriety as of late for a good reason, it works!
The thing to remember is that not everyone needs CBD Oil in their life. In fact, it is specifically for those with those with medical issues that should be using it. Which of the thousands of ailments can it help with?
It has been shown to have wide-reaching medical implications as, but not limited to, the following treatments: as an anti-depressant, anti-psychotic, anxiolytic (reduction of anxiety), anti-inflammatory, neuroprotectant, analgesic, and even as an anti-tumoral agent.
Although all of these claims are backed by large amounts of research, trials, and people claiming it worked for them, some of the medical implications are more widely excepted as proven than others. Those are the three that we will discuss today.
The use of CBD Oil as an anti-inflammatory is one of the earliest reasons that it became so widely used. The reason why that helped bring it into the national spotlight is that the anti-inflammatory effect is particularly successful for those with joint pain.
Often, joint pain sufferers would have to take huge volumes of OTC drugs to attempt to live with their daily pain. Unfortunately, since it is filtered through the liver, it would start losing its effectiveness (due to the liver becoming better at dissolving these foreign agents,) and larger quantities are needed to produce the result.
Why is that a problem?
The liver may be getting better at its job, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t a difficult job to do! In fact, OTC drugs are notoriously hard on the liver and prolonged use can lead to liver damage and even (although it is rare) liver failure. It should be noted that there are several other medications that can cause liver failure outside of this category. It should also be noted that up to 50% of liver failure cases in the US each year are caused by medications.
Why does that matter when we are talking about CBD Oil?
CBD Oil has no toxic effects on the liver and has actually been shown to improve liver health from the early stages to the end stages of liver failure. In other words, it is an anti-inflammatory that will heal your inflammation and improve your liver functionality in the process!
Just like the example before, the anti-inflammatory OTC drugs are almost all used to decrease pain, and since inflammation causes pain, this makes sense. What you may not know, is even the prescription analgesics and anti-inflammatory drugs can be toxic to the liver.
Since CBD Oil is nontoxic, you can use this in place of any prescription analgesic and avoid the long list of side effects associated with them. This route is far safer and since the body is very receptive to them (cannabinoid receptors exist in the human body specifically for cannabinoids to interact with) you don’t have to worry about them losing their potency over time.
You should be aware, however, that there is a threshold. This means that the body only has so many of these receptors, so using more doesn’t mean the pain-relieving effect will be stronger. Using more of your oil past a certain point means that you are just wasting a lot of your product.
The claims that CBD Oil can help with anxiety and depression are not only numerous but backed by science. There are thousands of people getting rid of their prescribed anxiolytics and using their CBD Oil as a replacement for daily mood improvement.
The majority of users have noted that it doesn’t make them happier, but more than anything it evens out their mood. By doing this, things that people were said during a regular day that would normally hit their anxiety button, had little to no outcome. By regulating the response to stimulators, anxiety sufferers are able to avoid reaching an anxiety attack.
Although some might see this as a negative, but for the vast majority of people in the world, this a huge plus because it means you can work without being under the powerful effects of prescription pain medications. Now, people who couldn’t work without pain are able to make a living again!
Another reason you may not be aware of is it’s ability to control the mechanism that causes seizures. One of the main reasons CBD Oil was put on the radar was the incredible story of a little girl named Charlotte Figi who went from having 300 grand mal seizures a week down to none!
