As CBD Oil (Cannabis Oil) products grow in popularity throughout Ireland, we have added a range of forms of CBD Oil to meet a variety of preferences.
Firstly, CBD is short for cannabidiol which is one of at least 113 active cannabinoids identified in cannabis. CBD does not appear to have any intoxicating effects such as those caused by THC in marijuana, but may have a downregulating impact on disordered thinking and anxiety.
Some of the benefits of CBD Oil / Cannabis Oil:
Natural pain relief / anti-inflammatory - Some people feel that CBD offers a more natural way to lower pain than over-the-counter medication. A study in the Journal of Experimental Medicine found that CBD significantly reduced both chronic inflammation and pain in mice and rats. The research suggest that the CBD could be a new treatment for chronic pain. CBD is already used to treat some conditions that cause chronic pain such as multiple sclerosis.
Epilepsy and other mental health disorders - CBD is also being studied for its possible role in treating epilepsy and neuropsychiatric disorders. A review posted to Epilepsia noted that CBD has anti-seizure properties and a low risk of side effects for people with epilepsy. Studies into CBD's effect on neurological disorders suggest that it may help to treat many of the disorders that are linked to epilepsy, such as neurodegeneration, neuronal injury, and psychiatric diseases. Another study posted to Current Pharmaceutical Design found that CBD may have similar effects to certain antipsychotic drugs, and that it may be safe and effective in treating patients with schizophrenia. However, more research is needed to better understand how this works.
Quitting smoking and drug withdrawals - There is some promising evidence that CBD use may help people to quit smoking. A pilot study posted to Addictive Behaviors found that smokers who used an inhaler containing the compound CBD smoked fewer cigarettes but did not have any additional craving for nicotine. Another similar study posted to Neurotherapeutics found that CBD may be a promising substance for people who abuse opioids. Researchers noted that some symptoms experienced by patients with substance use disorders may be reduced by CBD. These include anxiety, mood symptoms, pain, and insomnia. These are early findings, but they suggest that CBD may be used to avoid or reduce withdrawal symptoms.
Anxiety disorders - Patients with chronic anxiety are often advised to avoid cannabis, as THC can trigger or amplify anxiety and paranoia in some people. However, a review from Neurotherapeutics suggests that CBD may help to reduce the anxiety felt by people with certain anxiety disorders. The researchers point to studies showing that CBD may reduce anxiety behaviors in disorders such as: post-traumatic stress disorder; general anxiety disorder; panic disorder; social anxiety disorder; obsessive-compulsive disorder. The review notes that current medications for these disorders can lead to additional symptoms and side effects, and that people may stop taking the drugs because of these unwanted effects. CBD has not shown any adverse effects in these cases to date, and the researchers call for CBD to be studied as a potential treatment method.
Acne - Another promising use for CBD is as a new treatment for acne. Acne is caused, in part, by inflammation and overworked sebaceous glands on the body. A recent study posted to the Journal of Clinical Investigation found that CBD helps to lower the production of sebum that leads to acne, partly because of its anti-inflammatory effect on the body. CBD could be a future treatment for acne vulgaris, the most common form of acne.
