Many studies and research have been done on CBD in the past few years and more is being done all the time. There is so much we know and yet there is more to learn.
A clinical research conducted in 2018 included preliminary studies of anxiety, cognition, movement disorders and pain. It has proven to be good for the mind and body. So the people who are in pain, suffering anxiety disorders or can’t sleep seem to be the ones using CBD products. In addition to chronic pain and anxiety issues, it has been useful for a whole host of conditions including but not limited to:
Managing cancer-related symptoms
Aiding those wishing to stop smoking or using harmful drugs
Treating mental disorders
PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder)
Type 1 Diabetes
Skin conditions such as Acne
MS (multiple sclerosis)
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is actively working on getting and providing more information on CBD and Cannabis.
In June of 2018, the FDA approved one drug, Epidiolex (an oral solution) to treat two rare and severe strains of Epilepsy – Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome in children as young as 2 years old.
Side Effects Associated With CBD
There are some side effects associated with CBD but I think people are willing to put up with them and not everyone seems to experience them (I don’t). Some of these side effects are:
- Dry mouth
- Low blood pressure
- Drug interference
- Increase in tremors in Parkinson’s
I personally use CBD oil when I go to bed at night. It helps me to manage the pain in both my hips and knees due to degeneration and provides me with a good night’s sleep. My husband uses it for chronic pain as a result of years of playing hockey.
If you ever have never used CBD, it is advisable to begin with a very low dosage (download CBD Guide). To get you started, sign up for Special Code below.
