The Science behind the Benefits of CBD Products
Despite the substance having been around for some time now, specialized CBD products have been newly popping up in various marketplaces, everywhere. The interest in these products, what they do and how they benefit people, has piqued; and its because of their almost tangible health benefits, that this has become the case.
Of course, being a by-product of marijuana has given CBD products a lot of attention in various communities and interest groups, but that is not what has kept these products in the spotlight.
For those looking for more information about the cannabinoid compound, how it differs from regular marijuana, and how it is being used to improve peoples’ quality of life; here is a quick rundown.
What is CBD, Exactly?
To see exactly what CBD or, cannabidiol is, you need to take a closer look at the marijuana plant.
There are two main active ingredients in the plant, the first is CBD, from where the plant derives many of its health properties.
The other is THC, or if you’re feeling fancy, Tetrahydrocannabinol, which gives the plant its psychoactive properties.
While THC gives the user a sensation of feeling high, CBD, having no psychoactive properties does not.
It does, however, have several known remarkable health benefits, with more still being discovered. These include the following:
- Regulation of blood sugar
- Reduce inflammation
- Prevent or slow the spread of tumors
- Treatment for substance dependencies
- Ease the symptoms of certain mental disorders such as schizophrenia
- Ease the symptoms of certain neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease
Admittedly, seemingly too-good-to-be-true miracle cures come around from time to time. Not many of them, however, are backed up by the copious studies that surround CBD; studies which grow in number each day.
Let’s take a closer look at a few of the most notable health benefits from CBD:
Pain, Inflammation & Muscle Tension
The Endocannabinoid system describes the complex system of bodily functions that regulate sleep, immune system response and pain, amongst a few other things like memory, appetite, and fertility.
When this system works, your body essentially produces endocannabinoids, which are neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors in a person’s nervous system.
CBD has been found to stimulate this very system, effectively improving the functions it governs. This includes reduced inflammation and tension, while improving a body’s response to pain.
Results from numerous studies going as far back as the early 90’s have similar outcomes when used for the treatment of pain in a variety of disorders.
Anxiety & Depression
Following multiple studies from all over the world, CBD oils have been growing in popularity for the treatment of depression and anxiety, as well as related disorders.
Pharmaceutical drugs generally used to treat such cases often come with unpleasant side-effects and can lead to a dependence on the medication. CBD products have been shown to offer relief to the symptoms of depression and anxiety, often providing sufferers with a natural approach to managing certain psychological disorders.
Much in the way CBD acts on the endocannabinoid system to reduce pain and inflammation, it is also known to help regulate the brains receptors where serotonin production is concerned, which largely governs the regulation of moods, stress management, the internal reward system and social behaviour.
