Benefits of CBD
Many people have seen the benefits of CBD oil and other products made with CBD. Here are a few of the benefits that have been backed up with studies.
A study of the topical benefits of CBD oil was conducted by the Journal of Clinical Investigation. They discovered that CBD functioned as an anti-inflammatory compound. CBD was found to reduced lipid synthesis and consequently reduces acne breakouts.
Fighting Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
PTSD is a problem millions of people face, especially military personnel. In PTSD, a patient has to deal with severe anxiety and stress on a regular basis. The benefits of CBD have been found to have anti-anxiety effects. Anxiety and stress are two psychological aspects which could be impacted by our Endocannabinoid System or ECS.
Treatment of Schizophrenia
CBD has become the focal point of much attention in psychology due to the potential it has to combat various conditions. In 2012, a study was conducted concerning the benefits of CBD on schizophrenia, and it was found that this plant extract could treat this disorder better than many popular medications that were being used at the time.
Mitigate Cigarette Cravings
Another study was conducted to find out whether the benefits of CBD could be helpful in the fight against cigarette addiction. The study utilized two groups; one group was given an inhaler filled with CBD while the other group was given an inhaler filled with a placebo. Both groups were to use their inhalers any time they felt the urge to smoke. The group with a CBD inhaler had reduced cigarette usage by about 40 percent by the time the research was concluded.
These are the most well-known, but CBD also shows promise in pain relief, reducing the risk of diabetes, mitigating the symptoms of cancer, improving cardiovascular health, and fighting nausea.
