What Is CBD?
Before we can answer the question “what illness can CBD help with”, it is important to understand what CBD actually is. CBD is short for Cannabidiol. This all-natural substance is one of over 100 chemical compounds found in the marijuana plant. CBD does not contain any of the Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) that causes the “high” sensation that is often associated with marijuana. However, CBD does have many of the same pain and symptom relief qualities associated with traditional consumption of marijuana and cannabis.
Chronic pain is something that plagues many of us in our day to day lives. Whether it is the result of an old injury, our jobs, or an illness, chronic pain impacts almost every aspect of our lives. Fortunately, CBD has been proven to help reduce chronic pain.
CBD reduces pain by acting on the vanilloid receptors to reduce inflammation and pain perception. Many arthritis sufferers find relief in various CBD products like oil, lotion, and more. CBD lotion and oil can also offer athletes relief from sore muscles. Best of all, there is very little evidence of side effects when using CBD for pain relief.
Anxiety & Depression
Anxiety and depression are on the rise in our society. Many people are plagued by these illnesses and are impacted daily by their symptoms. CBD has been proven to help a variety of mental health issues including PTSD, general anxiety disorder, OCD, and more.
CBD helps those with anxiety and depression by changing serotonin levels in the brain. Much like with chronic pain, CBD has not displayed intense side effects like some prescription or over-the-counter drugs.
High Blood Pressure
Another way that CBD can help improve your overall health is by reducing your blood pressure and, ultimately, stroke. Although extensive studies have not yet been released about other heart conditions, positive results associated with high blood pressure specifically suggest that other heart conditions could benefit from CBD treatment.
One theory suggests that reduced anxiety symptoms and stress responses associated with CBD treatment could be a large contributor to better blood pressure.
