These days it seems that everyone has thought about the use of holistic or herbal medicines in some form or other. And why not? There are many benefits to using herbal remedies over big pharma – with fewer side effects, less cost and generally a more balanced experience, using herbal remedies can be immensely preferable to many. One such remedy, while still contested in some places, is CBD oil. This oil, derived from the marijuana plant has, in many studies, shown to be beneficial to health and wellness, as well as the cure of various ailments. But just what are the benefits exactly, and why should you consider CBD oil to help? We’ve taken a look at this oil in this article to help you decide whether this avenue is for you or not.
What Is CBD Oil?
CBD oil is short for Cannabidiol, a phytocannabinoid that makes up around 40% of a marijuana plant’s extract. The other main cannabinoid that is present in a marijuana plant is tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as THC. This is actual chemical in marijuana that provides the euphoric “high” feeling that many users get if they use a marijuana that hasn’t had its cannabinoids separated into their different types. If taking a cannabinoid for medical reasons, CBD is almost always the type you will want to take, but are the claims behind it backed by science? Greyhound Chromatography has recently released an ebook having a closer look at CBD and what claims have been made about it.
How Can It Help?
Studies have shown that CBD oil has been beneficial when used in people with issues relating to mobility, pain, anxiety, depression, insomnia and other ailments. Other studies have shown promise in areas related to medical conditions like epilepsy, which has helped numerous people suffering with the condition from children to adults and everyone in between. Not only this, but some studies have shown that CBD oil has helped with arthritis in both humans and animals. Many people have begun to give their dogs CBD oil to help with things like arthritis or seizures, since it’s helped many people in these areas as well.
Considering It For You
When it comes to considering whether CBD oil is right for you and your needs, you should consult friends or family that have experience in using this product for themselves and see what they think. If you don’t know anyone who does, reading people’s experiences with ailments that you have can help you decide if this is something you’re interested in pursuing. In some places where medical marijuana is legal, your doctor may be able to prescribe the oil for you to try to help alleviate symptoms associated with a variety of the issues mentioned previously.
While I’ve specifically not had personal experience using CBD oil to treat issues, I know a number of people who use it for their anxiety with excellent results. In fact, many who use it to treat behavioural and mood issues find that it’s far more effective than using antidepressants or medications by big pharma.
So there you have a bit of information about CBD oil and why you should give it a try if you have an ailment or issue that needs some support in some way. With this oil becoming more popular and being legalised in more places, it’s just a matter of time before you will be able to access it in many countries. Good luck!
