CBD for Your Health

A checklist by Paula Bell, last updated September 16, 2017.

CBD or cannabidiol is known to have a lot of potential health benefits. Here are only some of them according to different researches done on the compound.

  1. Cancer CBD has an antitumor effect and it is said to be useful in the treatment of certain cancers.

It reduces the capability of cancer cells to produce their own energy, thus the cancer cells would not be able to live when CBD affects them. This substance also helps LAK cells (lymphokine-activated killer cells) to kill cancer cells.

  1. Inflammation and Infections

CBD has a natural anti-inflammatory property that can be used for different inflammatory disorders. Our body has neutrophils that help in fighting infections in the body. However, having high levels of this is not good for the health. CBD can limit the growth of neutrophils when they are too high.

  1. Epilepsy

Different studies and tests were done with people, with ranging ages, who were suffering from seizure attacks caused by epilepsy. They were treated with controlled amount of CBD and the results were astonishing. Many of the patients had reduced up to 50% of their seizures.

  1. Multiple Sclerosis

The cannabinoid CBD is effective in treating muscle tightness, pain, urinary problems and sleep disturbances in people who are suffering from multiple sclerosis.

  1. Schizophrenia

Although more studies still have to be done to see how CBD can treat this disease, it has been known that the compound has anti-psychotic effect that is similar to drugs that are used to deal with Schizophrenic patients.

  1. Anxiety

Through different tests and studies, CBD has shown positive effects on people who are experiencing social anxiety disorder, panic disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder and posttraumatic stress disorder among others. It can also reduce the anxiety that is caused by THC use.

  1. Pain

There were extraordinary results when researchers have used CBD to treat various chronic pains caused by other diseases including rheumatoid arthritis and cancer.

  1. Insomnia

The sleepiness is a side effect of CBD. Instead of using addicting pharmaceuticals, some scientists recommend CBD to aid them in their sleeping problems.

  1. Diabetes

Although CBD does not affect the glucose levels directly, using it would help in preventing the production of pancreatic cells that produce insulin.

  1. Acne

The compound has been discovered to provide treatment for acne. It reduces the production of sebum, which causes the growth of acne, because of its anti-inflammatory property. Aside from the above mentioned, CBD can also potentially treat Alzheimer's disease, dyskinesia, depression and nausea. It can also help to promote heart health and bone growth. CBD can come in different forms like oil, tinctures, baking mixes, edibles, powder, sprays and more. For now, this compound is still under discussion as to whether it should be legalized in all forms or not in different countries. But, many people already believe in its abilities.
