CBD Product Benefits and 5 Reasons to Consider Using Them
August 18, 2023
Using CBD products for all kinds of ailments is pretty common these days.
CBD is also legal in most places today as long as there is a low amount of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol, the main psychoactive component of Cannabis) within the product.
So, from treating chronic pain to relieving stress and anxiety, here are some reasons to consider using cannabis products.
Using opioids is out of the question for some people. Maybe you would rather be in pain than risk becoming addicted to something like Oxycontin, as so many people do.
CBD products can help with certain pain levels, and the people at HealthXWire have some great articles about this.
Some studies have shown that chronic pain, such as inflammation, is reduced by the endocannabinoids in CBD. However, the research into CBD is ongoing for the time being.
As mentioned, CBD can help relieve chronic pain, such as inflammation.
But there are other chronic issues that CBD has been shown effective in relieving.
Controversially, CBD with high levels of THC has been linked to reducing seizures in people with severe epilepsy, especially children.
However, the bad news is that the level of THC needed for this is illegal in most places. Some countries like the USA and UK are allowing doctors to prescribe it in some special cases.
There have been some claims that CBD can relieve the symptoms of some cancers.
Research is ongoing. However, there are some patients who report CBD benefits for cancer treatment, such as pain and nausea associated with chemotherapy.
Presently, there has been no definitive evidence to prove this, and it is unlikely your doctor will prescribe CBD for cancer treatment.
However, CBD products are available from legal vendors if you wish to try them for some relief.
One of the main reasons people use CBD is for the relief of stress and anxiety.
It has been proven very effective for the anxiety and stress related to withdrawal when patients are trying to come off dependencies.
These include hard drugs, tobacco and alcohol, and cannabis itself.
CBD is also known to promote better sleep in insomnia patients and, therefore, lowers the stress and anxiety related to a poor night’s sleep, which has far wider-reaching benefits too.
Heart issues such as high blood pressure are becoming something of a pandemic.
This CDC article shows that almost half of us have high blood pressure, which can lead to heart disease, heart attack, and stroke.
CBD has been shown to widen blood vessels while also stabilizing heart contractions.
As a result, patients in one study showed remarkable drops in blood pressure when using CBD for one week. However, more research is, of course, necessary.
Pain relief is one of the biggest reasons people begin using CBD.
However, they have been shown benefits in alleviating cancer treatment symptoms and, of course, lowering stress and anxiety. They have also been shown to help lower blood pressure.
One of the other benefits of using CBD products may be their availability in many different forms and ease to use, which may make them more attractive and up for consideration.
