More Potential Benefits
Many people who live with anxiety and depression have become interested in cannabis oil’s natural approach as it has shown to treat these disorders without the side effects experienced when using other conventional drugs. It has been shown that CBD reduces anxiety, speech performance and cognitive impairment. This is because CBD is believed to act on the receptors of the brain for serotonin (the neurotransmitter that regulates social behavior and mood).
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) within the human body helps to regulate many important functions such as immune system response, pain, appetite and sleep. The body produces neurotransmitters or endocannabinoids which bind to cannabinoid receptors in the nervous system. It has been shown that CBD will reduce pain as it impacts the endocannabinoid receptor activity, interacts with neurotransmitters and reduces inflammation. Research shows that CBD injections reduce the pain of surgical incision in rats and that it also reduces inflammation and nerve pain. Humans studies showed that it is also effective in treating the pain of arthritis and multiple sclerosis sufferers.
It is also important to note that CBD does interact with a variety of medications and it is, therefore, essential to discuss the fact that you take it with your doctor to ensure that you are safe and to avoid any possible interactions.
Research shows that CBD has been linked to many benefits for the circulatory system as well as for the heart. This includes the ability to lower blood pressure (which is linked to many health conditions such as metabolic syndrome, heart attack and stroke).
