CBD or Cannabidiol is just one of over 100 chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant. It is a popular option for many of Ohio’s patients due to its ability to help relieve a variety of symptoms, without the psychoactive effects that THC dominant products onset. Mississippi patients can use CBD dominant products and still yield many benefits. If you are someone who is considering using CBD to manage the symptoms associated with your qualifying condition you may be interested in learning these 5 benefits of CBD Oil.
1. Reduces Anxiety/Depression
Oftentimes patients opt for the wrong types of products due to simply not understanding cannabis as medicine. First-time patients often assume a higher THC percentage will provide them with the most relief, which is not true. Patients must first understand the role of cannabis terpenes, and other cannabinoids in their product, in order to find the most relief for their specific condition or symptom. CBD has shown effective for relieving feelings of anxiety and depression in patients due to its calming effects. It also has many characteristics that are similar to the effects that anti-depressants have on patients, minus the negative side effects. CBD can be used to treat anxiety and depression when taken in a variety of forms. Vaping CBD dominant flower or oil will deliver the quickest onset, although other forms are available at Mississippi dispensaries.
2. Treating Chronic Pain
CBD is an effective option for treating chronic pain in medical marijuana patients due to its ability to work with the body’s natural endocannabinoid system to reduce inflammation and work with neurotransmitters. Patients can use CBD in many different forms to treat different types of pain. A popular option for patients who experience joint and muscle pain, often opt for topicals that they apply to the target area for pain relief or to reduce inflammation. CBD tinctures can also be used when applying the oil orally by placing it under the tongue. When absorbed into the bloodstream, the CBD will start to work in the body’s endocannabinoid system to start relieving pain, inflammation, anxiety, and more.
3. Acne Reduction
Due to CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties, it is often used for treating acne. Acne can be caused by a variety of different factors such as genetics, bacteria, underlying inflammation, and more. One study showed that CBD was an effective treatment option for acne because it works as sebostatic agent. In conjunction with CBD inhibiting sebocyte lipogenesis, it also decreases inflammation, which helps acne-prone skin not to be as inflamed, or prone to breakouts.
4. It’s a Neuroprotectant
CBD is also an effective neuroprotectant. It has shown to have anti-seizure properties, making it an ideal treatment option for those suffering from seizure disorders or epilepsy. Many past studies have shown its ability to reduce the number of seizures over time in epilepsy patients. CBD can also reduce the number of muscle spasms in patients with MS.
5. Alleviate Cancer Symptoms
CBD can be used to treat many of the symptoms resulting from standard cancer treatments and hormone therapy. CBD is effective for treating nausea, and also performs well when mixed with THC, causing the entourage effect. When THC and CBD work together in the body, it creates the entourage effect which means patients can reap the benefit of THC without experiencing the psychoactive effects, since the CBD will work to take them away. CBD and THC can also work together to stimulate one’s appetite as this is also a popular symptom from those going through cancer treatments. CBD can work with the body’s natural endocannabinoid system to help those suffering from cancer and its treatments live a much easier life.
