Despite the fact that many people are still skeptical about the fact that one plant can offer us so much, there are fortunately more and more doctors within the medical world who are positive about it. Thanks to scientists, there will be more research into the drug of the future in the future.
Now let’s take a look at what has now been proven when it comes to the Cbd Oil benefits.
Epilepsy and Seizures
In 2018, the FDA approved a CBD drug that can be used in epilepsy. This is also a huge step in making this natural medicine accessible to epilepsy patients. For many of these people, CBD oil is even life-saving. To date, the effect of CBD in epilepsy is the most researched, proven and reported health benefit of CBD oil.
Anxiety and Mood Disorders
CBD has been touted as a potential anti-anxiety drug and potentially effective as an antidepressant. Whether it’s social anxiety or generalized anxiety disorder, CBD may be the solution you’re looking for. Studies into the effect of CBD on these disorders have not only been conducted abroad, but research is also currently being conducted in Utrecht. It is to be hoped that when the (positive) results are known, CBD will also receive a bit more recognition within the regular circuit here in the Netherlands.
In addition to having a positive impact on mood disorders, CBD is also known as a potential medicine for patients dealing with psychosis. Some doctors even call it a legitimate antipsychotic, following a March 2018 study.
This recent research, including an animal trial, suggests that CBD has a pharmacological profile similar to that of conventional antipsychotics. It also encourages more research into CBD’s ability to treat similar conditions. For example, you can think of bipolar disorder.
Have you heard of CBD oil for sleeping problems? If you suffer from serious sleep problems, CBD may be able to help you fall asleep better and stay asleep. Some studies show that CBD could improve sleep at bedtime. A study using rats, conducted in 2013, showed that CBD can increase total sleep time. However, this only works at low doses. At high doses of CBD, it could actually cause insomnia and anxiety, according to the research.
Apart from the positive effect on epileptic seizures and the anxiety-reducing effect, CBD is also known as an anti-inflammatory. If you have internal inflammations, it is advised to use CBD orally. There are still some differences of opinion about the external effect of CBD on pain and inflammation. This way of using CBD for inflammation has not yet been scientifically researched and doctors say that CBD is not able to penetrate the layers of the skin and thereby relieve internal pain and inflammation.
When you look at the experiences that people have with this, it appears that they really benefit from applying a CBD cream externally on places of the body where there is internal inflammation. It also seems that (graze) wounds heal better and are less likely to inflame when some CBD oil is dripped on them.
