6 Benefits of Using CBD Oils

Cannabis oil is considered to be one of the most effective oils for the alleviation of certain conditions and illnesses. Researchers believe there are at least two active chemicals in cannabis that have medicinal applications:  cannabidiol and tetrahydrocannabinol. Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, impacts the brain without a high, and tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as THC, has pain-relieving properties.

Here are the top 6 most beneficial reasons to consider using CBD oil:

Anxiety & Stress

Every single one of us suffers from either anxiety, stress, or both.  There are countless worries and stressors, such as jobs, bills, school, parenting, and traffic, just to name a few. As a wife and mom of two, I know all too well the negative side effects both can have on a person. One of the most popular uses for CBD oil is for relieving anxiety and stress. There are natural compounds found in cannabis oil which are effective for relaxing the mind, reducing stress, and inducing a sense of calm.

Pain Relief

If you suffer from chronic pain, cannabis oil is a perfect pain relief option. Cannabis oil is also often suggested for people who suffer from inflammation as well and is occasionally used for emergency pain relief. Cannabis oils work so well for pain relief that it’s one of the top go-to methods for cancer patients who need relief from chemotherapy or the disease itself. CBD doesn’t cause dependence or tolerance, so it’s a great choice for those trying to stay away from opioids.

Cancer Prevention

Cancer itself is deadly, but the treatments involved in killing it can be just as lethal and terribly expensive. Research reports have shown that the active ingredients in cannabis oil can reduce tumor size and have preventative effects on cancer. Reports also suggest that the oil makes it easier for those who have cancer to beat it. CBD is non-toxic, so it can be used as a treatment for a long time if necessary. In comparison with other cancer treatments, CBD oil is not expensive,

Sleep Longer

Do you suffer from constant anxiety during night time hours? Insomnia? Or feel you don’t get the restful sleep you should? Cannabis oil might be the solution for you. The cannabis oil works by relaxing the mind and body. It also generates a lower energy level, which makes it easier for you to get your heart rate down and clear your mind to allow for a long, restful sleep.

Heart Health

Anything that helps the heart is always good. With heart disease being the leading cause of death in the United States, more people should learn and try out this option. Cannabis oil balances out the negative oils that are in your system. Cannabidiol reduces artery blockage, reduces stress induced cardiovascular response, and can reduce blood pressure. It may also reduce cholesterol.

PTSD Treatment

The cannabinoids help to regulate the system that causes anxiety and fear in the brain and body.  This specific use of cannabis oil has been connected to benefiting veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder.

How To Use CBD Oils

CBD oil is most often used through ingestion. Exact dosing has yet to be established. There is no established CBD overdose and there are very few, if any, side effects.

Consider these options when trying to find the right dosage for you:

  • Purchase the oil you want to use.
  • Begin with the recommended dosage on the bottle.
  • You may notice a change immediately, while others may not notice any improvement for several weeks.
  • If after several weeks there is still no change, increase the dosage.
  • A small dosage 3 times a day is usually more therapeutic than one large dose.
  • Consider taking CBD gummies if you don’t like swallowing pills.

There may be some trial and error in finding the right CBD product and dosage for you.

While I may not use CBD oils often, I can say they have helped me out tremendously with my back pain and sleeping issues. I felt a difference almost immediately after the first couple of uses. Do I recommend it? YES! I stick with the options that don’t end up becoming addictions. Cannabis oil is one of these options. Do not let those who may not support the idea of using CBD oils deter you from possibly making the best choice for your mind, body, soul, and YOU.
