Although we are forbidden to promote CBD as a drug or to talk about the possible benefits that this molecule can bring to the body, we can still take a look at the different research that has been done on the subject of cannabidiol. As you will see in the article, Europe is still lagging behind on the research around this molecule, but the United States has already done well on the subject. You will find the sources at the end of the article for each of the benefits studied on different problems and diseases.

For starters, CBD inherits many medicinal properties of cannabis such as its anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiolytic properties. This allows him to provide natural relief from stress, anxiety and pain. But this is not what allows the CBD to offer so much benefit. What allows it to effectively treat as many conditions and maintain the health and well-being of the body, is the way the cannabinoids contained in CBD interact with human brain receptors.

Benefits

Potential treatment of anxiety

It is recommended [1] for patients with anxiety disorders to avoid cannabis and marijuana, as THC may increase anxiety, panic or nervousness in some people. However, a new study suggests that cannabidiol, or CBD, may be a potential treatment for anxiety disorders. The part of marijuana that can cause anxiety or panic in some people is delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, or more commonly THC. CBD oil is non-psychotropic, which means that the user will not feel “planner” or intoxicated. THC binds to cannabinoid receptors in the body, while CBD does not function in the same way.

Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a condition that causes convulsions when exposed to various situations, most of which involve bright or flashing lights. Citing evidence from clinical studies [2] and from laboratories conducted over a few years, the researchers conclude that CBD-based products could potentially be useful in controlling epileptic seizures. The products themselves are a natural and safe alternative to prescription pain medication.

Cancer

CBD oil is used in the fight against cancer [3]. It is a great way to relieve the body of pain caused inadvertently by most cancer treatments. The best part of this relief is that it is completely natural and is a great alternative to prescription medications that can have side effects. Although scientists do not fully understand the effects of CBD oil on cancer cells, they find that CBD oil helps to limit the migration of cancer cells into the body.

Heart disease

There is growing evidence [4] in scientific circles that CBD can be used to improve everyday heart health. CBD can help relax the arterial walls, thus relieving tension on the blood vessels of our body. There are many problems with inflammation in those battling heart disease – new studies have shown the anti-inflammatory effects of CBD in the body. Not only does CBD help the arteries of the body, but it also reduces inflammation and helps relieve the pain of people with heart problems.

Plaque in the arteries is usually a common problem in people with heart problems. The arterial plaque prevents the heart from pumping blood into all parts of our body. Studies show that CBD is effective at reducing the plaque of artery walls. Eliminating plaque over time can help the heart stay healthy and reduce the chances of coping with significant heart problems in the future.

Hazards and risks of CBD

drowsiness

CBD is particularly useful for finding sleep and for relaxing, in high doses so it can plunge you into a state of sleepiness that is not repeated when you practice activities require a high concentration such as driving a vehicle for example.

Screening test

It may be that you have a day to test for your work for example and these tests are not always very accurate. Indeed you can see you declare positive for cannabis use with taking CBD! These tests to detect cannabis use are not all reliable because they do not focus only on THC but on a wide spectrum of cannabinoids such as CBDa, CBN, etc …

CBD is still an “underground” substance that although legal is not yet widely used and it will take a few years for screening tests to take into account the difference between cannabidiol and THC. It is therefore recommended to stop CBD consumption for several weeks before being tested.
