As we all know cannabis is being legalized worldwide and Canada becomes one of the first countries to fully legalize marijuana for medical as well as recreational purposes. Well, the legalization has expanded the scope of more detailed studies on the effects of the weed on humans. The weed market is already offering various marijuana products online like moon rocks, death bubba, and many others. These products have THC as its main compound which gives one a euphoric feeling. Basically, THC is the one used for recreational purpose and another one called CBD is used for medicinal purposes.
CBD is a non-psychoactive compound and it acts to reverse the effects of THC. It is used to manufacture medicines and there are various CBD products in the market which are helpful in treating several physical and mental conditions. CBD can offer many benefits to the mind and body here; we shall clarify and examine the various health aspects of CBD.
CBD for Pain
CBD can help with chronic pain and inflammation. For example, scientists found that cannabidiol (CBD) can significantly slow arthritis in mice by reducing inflammation. This is mainly due to the interaction of CBD with the so-called endocannabinoid system, which regulates, among other things, sleep, appetite, immune system, and pain response.
Another study from 2012 showed that CBD also affects the receptors in the spine and brain. This inhibits the pain reaction in the body. For example, CBD can relieve pain caused by arthritis, cancer, irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, or nerve pain.
CBD for Skin
CBD is not used in many skincare products for no reason. It can help with a number of skin problems. Inflammatory skin diseases such as psoriasis, eczema, or dermatitis can be improved with CBD.
CBD can also help with acne by regulating sebum production. Too much talc clogs the pores and causes scaly skin. CBD also eliminates bacteria that can lead to pimples in connection with clogged pores. Just like King Louis XIII strain and other marijuana products, CBD cosmetic products are also in the market.
CBD for Stress
Many people use CBD to relieve stress and anxiety. But how exactly does CBD silence that nagging voice in our head? Science is still at odds here. It may be due to how CBD works on our serotonin receptor in the brain. Studies have shown that cannabidiol can act similarly to antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications. For example, CBD can help with PTSD or OCD.
Can it help in cancer?
CBD can alleviate some symptoms related to cancer treatment, such as nausea and pain. A study examined the effects of CBD oil during chemotherapy and found that CBD reduced the side effects of the therapy (especially nausea). The majority of patients also reported that CBD relieved physical pain.
How Should I Take CBD?
The first and the most important thing to know before consuming CBD products is to find the method of consuming it. As we said there are many CBD products in the market so you can get them easily in the market. CBD oil and capsules, CBD vape, CBD edibles, and CBD cosmetics are the main products in the market.
CBD oil can be consumed directly from the mouth. CBD liquids are available for vaping while edibles can be made at home and CBD gummies are also available in the market. For ski, as we said, it should be applied directly to the skin.
Dosage of CBD varies individually. First, you need to know for what purpose you want to take CBD. You should consult a doctor prior to taking any CBD consumption method. But we suggest starting slow. Try taking a small amount of CBD and check how it helps with your condition then if you think, you can increase the dose. But it is advised to consult a doctor if you are already on some medicines. CBD edibles react slowly with the body so don’t consume it in the large amount initially.
