CBD oils have been proven to help with many medical issues. The World Health Organization in December of 2017 declared that cannabidiol is not harmful, has health benefits, and does not have abuse potential. Even though it is derived from the non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis, it is still not legal in all 50 states, just like THC and other forms of cannabis. Good news to Alaska residents and visitors, it is legal here.
CBD Oil Has Been Reported to Have the Following Benefits:
Lab tests have shown in animals and lab cell cultures that CBD does have cancer-fighting properties, but those tests have not translated to humans, and the medical community typically does not agree that it has cancer-fighting properties, but many patients and consumers swear by it.
Treats Seizures and Autism
Clinical trials have shown that the drug Epidiolex, which is a derivative of cannabidiol, can help reduce seizures in children with rare forms of epilepsy and has been FDA approved to treat those conditions. The body’s endocannabinoid system plays a vital role in social behavior, circadian rhythm, and reward processing and CBD oil has shown benefits to these areas of the brain that affect autism. More research is currently being conducted, and many are excited about the outcome of these studies.
Relieves Stress and Anxiety
Informally people have been using cannabis to relieve stress and anxiety for years thinking that the THC provides the relief. In recent times people are starting to realize that CBD has its own calming effects as well. More and more studies are being done that support this, and it is suggested to try CBD without THC at first to see if you can obtain the calming effects you need.
As an alternative to opiates, CBD is being used to treat chronic pain. A study was done by Zynerba that found a cannabidiol-derived topical drug helped relieve pain in patients suffering from knee osteoarthritis. Opiates are known to be dangerous, and habit-forming, so more research is conducted as to the effects of CBD oil on chronic pain.
Helps People Quit Smoking
In 2013 a study was done on 24 smokers using a CBD inhaler. The smokers that used the cannabidiol inhaler vs. a placebo reported smoking 40% fewer cigarettes over the course of the study. This evidence and research are preliminary, but there is some promise that CBD can be an effective tool to aid in quitting smoking.
