Cannabidiol (CBD) oil and other CBD products have become widely popular with people seeking an alternative treatment for a variety of illnesses, disorders, and diseases.
Cannabis plants contain a group of substances known as cannabinoids. Though there are more than 113 cannabinoids, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and CBD are the two most studied cannabinoids.
THC is a psychoactive compound, responsible for much of the inebriating effects or the and the high frequently associated with cannabis use. CBD is not psychoactive.
In 2018 the United States federally legalized hemp, and as a result CBD oil is rapidly increasing around the United States. CBD comes in various forms, such as CBD gummies, CBD capsules, and under-the-tongue CBD tablets. Some claim that CBD oil may relieve ache, reduce anxiety, and increase appetite in the same way as marijuana does. CBD has also shown success in the treatment of other forms of seizures. In this article, we discuss the most popular benefits and common side effects of CBD oil. Let’s have a look!
Benefits of CBD Oil
May help with discomfort issues: In this comprehensive study by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine reviewed more than 10,000 clinical reports on Cannabis’s medicinal benefits. This study found out that the use of medicinal cannabis may be able to help chronic discomfort. It is a significant reason for disability, affecting over 25 million people in the United States.
Promote a sense of calm: CBD oil may a sense of calm in those who have feelings of anxiousness may be quite helpful to some. In this study, they used brain imaging to test the people who had SAD (social anxiety disorder). Those who were given the CBD showed social anxiety disorder during the brain scans. Those who did not receive the CBD did not have any decrease.
Anti-inflammatory properties: CBD has been researched for the possibility of joint health benefits. Panacea Life Sciences has done our own research regarding this aspect. We looked at dogs who are elderly and have joint health issues. During this study, Panacea Life Sciences asked pet owners to give CBD to their dogs 2 times a day for 4 weeks. The owners were asked to take a test weekly to show if any symptoms had gotten better. At the end of the 4 weeks, pet owners said their dogs were more active. Therefore, the CBD oil may have helped with their joint health!
Side Effects of CBD Oil
CBD is generally considered safe and well-tolerated, but it may cause adverse reactions in some individuals when taken at very high doses. Also, the severity and type of side effects may vary from individual to individual.
Its common side effects are:
- Mood swings
- Changes in appetite
- Dry mouth
CBD oil may increase liver enzymes (a marker of hepatic inflammation). People with liver disease should be vigilant when using CBD oil, preferably under the supervision of a doctor who can monitor the blood liver enzyme levels regularly.
CBD oil use during pregnancy and breastfeeding should be avoided. A 2018 report published by the American Academy of Pediatrics urged women to avoid cannabis during pregnancy because of the possible threats to a child’s health.
While all of CBD’s effects are still unknown, CBD is known to move through the placental barrier. When you consider using CBD oil to treat a health problem, be sure to speak to your health care provider and make sure it’s the best treatment for you.
How Is It Made?
CBD oil is typically obtained from the Cannabis sativa plant. CBD is extracted from the leaves, stems, flowers, and stalks of mature hemp plants, not the seeds. Several methods can be used to extract CBD oil, such as ethanol, carbon dioxide, and olive oil. The type of extraction plays a vital role in the quality of CBD oil.
