Hemp Oil for Your Health
CBD oil is obtained from hemp, is not psychoactive, is legal in Spain, and has a long list of therapeutic and preventive indications.
In Canada, Uruguay, Holland, Jamaica, and some states of the United States the therapeutic or recreational use of Hemp is already legal. In Spain, there is a report in the Congress of Deputies to debate it. But right now it is already possible to consume non-psychoactive CBD hemp oil, which has interesting medicinal properties.
Products obtained from Hemp without THC, but with CBD are already being marketed as supplements for their beneficial effects.
CBD oil is the most common presentation, although it can also be taken with a vaporizer, added to food, or as a cosmetic ingredient in creams and ointments.
THE MAIN PROVEN INDICATIONS OF CBD OIL
Hemp is a very complex plant, with active principles that act in synergy. The most characteristic is its 104 cannabinoids, compounds belonging to the terpene phenol family. For additional tips and information about 5mg Delta 9 Gummies, check out their page to know more.
Among these molecules, the most outstanding from a therapeutic point of view are THC or tetrahydrocannabinol and CBD or cannabidiol. THC has psychoactive effects and CBD does not.
CBD is not a miracle product, although the exaggerated publicity of some marketers may lead one to think so.
By itself, it does not cure and cannot cure all diseases. However, it has a broad spectrum of indications where it can play a complementary role as an effective natural therapy with few or no side effects.
The plant’s efficacy is explained by the existence in the human body of an “endocannabinoid system”, consisting of neurotransmitter substances – such as serotonin or anandamide – and their cellular receptors that regulate a variety of functions, such as sleep, appetite, pain, or immune response.
Therefore, CBD functions virtually as naturally as a substance secreted by the body itself.
CBD OIL CAN HELP WITH MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEMS
CBD inhibits nerve signal transmission and modulates the action of several neurotransmitters. These properties explain one of CBD’s most popular uses: relieving stress and depression.
Its effects are similar in efficacy to those of anti-anxiety drugs or antidepressants but without their side effects.
Benzodiazepines prescribed for anxiety or panic attacks are addictive and other drugs often cause agitation, insomnia, reduced libido, or headaches. In contrast, with CBD side effects are rare.
In the fields of mental and emotional imbalances, there are several precise indications for CBD.
EPILEPSY AND SOCIAL PHOBIA
One of them is epilepsy, as it has been proven to reduce the frequency and intensity of seizures.
Another indication is social phobia. A study published in 2017 by the University of São Paulo (Brazil) found that CBD decreases anxiety in patients who feel displeased or frightened in social situations, such as public speaking.
A study conducted at the University of Colorado (United States) used CBD oil with children to treat insomnia and anxiety due to post-traumatic stress.
A review published in the journal Schizophrenia Bulletin also suggests that CBD may produce beneficial effects in patients with early psychosis.
AGAINST ADDICTIONS AND NEURODEGENERATIVE DISEASES
The treatment of addictions is another indication, according to Yasmin Hurd, neuroscientist, and director of the Addictions Institute at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, as it helps to exert more control over compulsive cravings.
There are also studies that show cannabidiol’s ability to delay the progression of Alzheimer’s and even prevent this devastating disease.
