What is CBD?
It is important to understand the effects that CBD has on specific ailments, however, we must widen the scope to understand the correlation between CBD, the human body and the interaction between the two. Only then can we begin to fathom how this naturally occurring compound may have therapeutic benefits.
First, we must recognize the human body and its endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is responsible for controlling the brain, endocrine, nervous and immune systems. It has a regulatory effect and response to stress, secretion of hormones and overall homeostasis. The ECS maintains our health by creating such balance within the body.
When the endocannabinoid system becomes unbalanced, the systems in which the ECS controls will begin to dysfunction. This leads to ailments within the body and symptoms can occur. The body seeks to regulate itself again and find that healthy homeostasis.
What are the benefits of CBD?
CBD is thought to promote the well-being and healthy nature of our endocannabinoid system. Because there are many conditions caused by an imbalance within this system, it is possible that CBD may alleviate symptoms caused by such conditions.
There are many studies, publications, and research articles being completed to comprehend CBD and its impact on the human body. Studies have focused on the effect of CBD on a variety of conditions including:
- Acne [ Study , Study ]
- Anxiety disorders [ Study ]
- Apoptosis of malignant neoplasms [ Study ]
- Arthritis [ Study ]
- Chronic/neuropathic pain, fibromyalgia, migraines [ Study , Study ]
- Epilepsy and seizure disorders [ Study ]
- Neurodegenerative disorders (Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis) [ Study ]
- Oxidative Stress / Free Radicals [ Study ]
- Substance abuse disorders [ Study ]
*In order to collect preliminary data on CBD many preclinical studies were performed and tests were completed outside of the human body, which may reduce the reliability of results. This science allowed researchers to review biological properties of CBD. Although finite claims are difficult to make, scientific literature reveals evidential properties to the CBD molecule and its potential aid in many disorders.
As you can see, there are lots of incredible applications for CBD that science is just starting to understand. Pain relief from exercise, injury, or chronic illness to reduction in anxiety and even possibly having anti-psychotic effects, CBD is shaping up to be a mental and physical panacea. If you struggle with nausea, insomnia, or even eczema, CBD oil can put you on a path to feeling better both inside and out. Because many of these studies are not yet complete, we can’t say that there is a causal relationship between CBD and the treatment of any of these problems, but anecdotally, people have been using CBD for these wellness issues with reported success.
