Derivative products from the Cannabis sativa plant have historically been used for a number of neurological disorders. The CBD-based products were registered for the treatment of treatment-resistant epilepsies. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6143706)
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the primary psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis and is the reason for the feeling of getting “high,” which is associated with marijuana. However, unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive.
At lower doses, CBD has physiological effects that promote and maintain health, including antioxidative, anti-inflammatory, and neuroprotection effects. For instance, CBD is more effective than vitamin C and E as a neuroprotective antioxidant. It can improve skin conditions such as acne. (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/9653176)
CBD can relieve pain, and studies suggest that it can be used in chronic diseases. It relieves pain by stimulating endocannabinoid receptor activity, decreasing inflammation, and interacting with neurotransmitters. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5922297)
CBD oil is shown to be effective in the treatment of seizures in children with certain rare types of epilepsy. But it is not approved by the FDA for any health condition. It is believed to show promising effects on children with autism. Many parents have reported it is beneficial for their children.
CBD oil is unregulated, and you cannot be sure about the product you are buying. Look for these things to buy a reliable product:
- Check for the recommended dose and amount of CBD it contains.
- Check if the oil production has undergone third-party testing and other needed precautions.
- Check if the plant is grown organically without any toxic chemicals.
