So what’s all the hype about CBD?

 

Cannabidiol or CBD is a natural compound from the cannabis and hemp plant and is one of 90 cannabinoid compounds that come from the plant. Unlike other cannabinoids, such as tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, it does not produce a euphoric high or psychoactive effect, and is typically grown for health reasons.

 

Here’s the science bit… Our bodies each feature an endocannabinoid system (ECS) that receive and translate signals from cannabinoids in the body, called endocannabinoids. These endocannabinoids are produced by the body and together with the ECS, help regulate everyday functions such as how much sleep we get, our immune-system responses (whether we get that winter cold or not) and pain. CBD works with the body in a complex way to influence it to use its own endocannabinoids more effectively. No tripping here.

 

People have been using CBD for thousands of years to treat many chronic issues within the body; however, the ingredient has only recently begun to be studied by the medical community.

 

CBD oil is used for many problems with pain and inflammation, as well as having benefits to mental and neurological health, including depression, seizures and epilepsy and possibly even cancer.

 

  • Arthritis pain – CBD oil is popular for easing the pain associated with arthritis, although more research is needed.
  • Multiple sclerosis – MS is an autoimmune disease that affects the entire body through the nerves and brain. CBD oil has been found to ease the pain in the spasms suffered by those affected by the disease.
  • Chronic pain – CDB has been the subject of research into this debilitating symptom, with substantial evidence that the compound is an effective treatment for chronic pain in adults.
  • Cancer – Cannabis can play an important palliative role for cancer sufferers, particularly for those undergoing gruelling chemotherapy. There’s no question that it can help stave off nausea, improve appetite and help with pain and sleep regulation. But could it actually cure cancer? Laboratory evidence points to cannabinoids as possible anti-cancer agents, and many of these reports lead to a lab in Spain and the biochemist Manuel Guzmán who studied cannabis for about 20 years at the Complutense University of Madrid. In the study Guzmán and his colleagues, who’ve been treating cancer-riddled animals with cannabis compounds for 15 years, found that the tumours in a third of the rats were eradicated and in another third, reduced.
  • Mental health, depression and anxiety – the same laboratory has also studied how the chemicals in cannabis, as well as cannabinoids like the anandamide produced by our bodies, protect our brains against various types of insults, such as physical and emotional trauma, giving hope to the many who suffer from debilitating mental health issues.

 

 

As with all links to helping health conditions, CBD needs to be studied in greater depth for its true wellness potential to be realised. It has a wide range of current uses but there are also further promising possibilities:
