5 Surprising Ways CBD Can Change Your Life!
by Bob & Fran German
We have been researching and using CBD (cannabidiol) oil for some time as part of our goal to live a healthy lifestyle. For us and a rapidly growing number of others, it is an ideal plant-based supplement that is packed with health benefits.
It’s not at all about getting a buzz – it’s about a good night’s sleep, calming anxiety, relieving pain, improving your skin tone, or even treating your pets. CBD does not provide the euphoric “high” found in Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). But CBD can serve as a powerful tool for improving and maintaining one's personal wellness when used in moderation and in low doses. It is legal in all 50 states, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Sweden.
CBD-based ingestible supplements can reduce anxiety while CBD topicals have anti-inflammatory properties for pain reduction. The antioxidants found in CBD have anti-aging properties to refresh your skin. CBD can also work for insomnia.
Here are just a few ways in which CBD-rich cannabis can help improve your life:
1. It Can Relieve Anxiety
According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA), 40 million Americans – 18 percent of us – suffer from some kind of anxiety disorder. Studies suggest that cannabis contains anti-anxiety properties and benefits many people with issues related to anxiety disorders.
Anxiety is among the most common reasons cited for those seeking cannabis for medicinal purposes. Why? The idea of taking fewer pharmaceutical drugs is an attractive proposition for many people. In states with legal cannabis, patients use significantly less prescription medication. Knowing that cannabis can be an affordable and safe option makes it worth a try.
A 1999 study in The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry discovered a huge societal price tag for anxiety: Roughly one-third of America’s total mental health costs, $42 billion a year, goes to treating anxiety-related disorders.
If your anxiety is acting up or if you’re having trouble coping during a particularly stressful time, CBD oil may help!
2. It Can Refresh Your Skin
CBD is known to have anti-inflammatory properties and many cannabis companies are turning to CBD-dense topicals to help with inflammation. In fact, some researchers find that CBD may be a secret anti-aging ingredient that could add beneficial nutrients to your skin.
Inflammation is the root cause of a variety of skin ailments, from acne to acute irritation to rosacea. Because of CBD’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, applying it to your skin reduces puffiness, swelling, and soreness. CBD oil is rich in fatty acids and it improves hydration and minimizes moisture loss. Studies suggest that CBD oil may even inhibit the growth of acne.
CBD binds to a special set of receptors in the skin known as TRPV1 receptors, where it can help feelings of heat, itch, and pain. This explains why it has a soothing effect on the skin. Just as other natural oils are used in skin care, the natural fatty acids and antioxidants make it a good choice for people with dry skin and eczema.
3. It Can Reduce Pain
CBD may have real benefits for people living with chronic pain, Dr. Daniel Clauw, a professor of anesthesiology at the University of Michigan, recently told Health.com. Clauw cites a recent clinical trial that found that a CBD-derived topical drug provided pain relief to patients suffering from knee osteoarthritis.
Cannabis vs Opioids
“I don’t think we have that many good drugs for pain, and we know that CBD has fewer side effects than opioids or even nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, which can cause bleeding and cardiovascular problems,” Clauw told the medical website. “If I have an elderly patient with arthritis and a little bit of CBD can make their knees feel better, I’d prefer they take that than some other drugs.”
Studies reveal that CBD-rich cannabis can be as much as 20 times more effective than aspirin at reducing inflammation.
4. It Can Improve Your Sleep
Research indicates that CBD has the ability to interact with serotonin receptors and GABA receptors in the brain. Serotonin plays an important role in mood and anxiety, and GABA is known as the main ‘inhibitory’ neurotransmitter, meaning it calms excess activity in the brain and promotes relaxation.
CBD For Insomnia – Longer Sleep Time
According to a 2017 review of research surrounding the efficacy of CBD for insomnia, the substance has the potential to treat certain sleep disorders.
CBD has calming, anti-anxiety, and anti-psychotic effects. It also provides a longer sleep time and improves insomnia, according to research.
5. It Can Help Your Pets, Too!
Cancer Pain - CBD products can help mitigate some cancer symptoms such as nausea, loss of appetite, or chronic pain.
Anti-Inflammatory - CBD interacts with receptors throughout the body and can act as an anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting agent.
Arthritis - CBD can alleviate these joint pains and have them moving around again.
Anxiety - CBD can help relieve the stress from separation anxiety, thunderstorms, fireworks, and noise phobias for many high-strung pets. It can also keep them calm while traveling.
Loss of appetite - CBD can boost appetite, reduce nausea, and alleviate digestive issues.
Seizures - CBD has been shown to reduce and help manage seizures brought on by epilepsy or other genetic disorders.
Aggressive behavior - CBD treats can help minimize aggressive behaviors and stress disorders.
