CBD is gaining momentum in the health and wellness world, backed by scientific studies showing that it helps treat a variety of health problems like chronic pain and anxiety.
Here are three health benefits of CBD oil that are supported by scientific evidence.
1. Pain Relieve
Scientists have discovered that CBD are responsible for its pain-relieving effects.
A study has shown that CBD may help reduce chronic pain by limiting endocannabinoid receptor activity, thus reducing inflammation and interacting with neurotransmitters.
2. Help Reduce Anxiety
According to World Health Organisation (WHO), anxiety disorders are ranked sixth among mental disorders by population.
Anxiety is often treated with pharmaceutical drugs but they cause many side effects including drowsiness, agitation, insomnia, sexual dysfunction and headache. Medicine like benzodiazepines can be addictive and may lead to substance abuse.
However, CBD oil can help reduce anxiety.
In a study, 24 people with social anxiety disorder have either CBD or a placebo before a public speaking test. The group that received CBD had significantly less anxiety, cognitive impairment and discomfort in their speech performance, compared to the placebo group.
Another study found that CBD oil has ever been used to safely treat insomnia and anxiety in children with post-traumatic stress disorder.
3. Reduce Acne
As you know, acne is a common skin condition that affects more than 9% of the total population.
Recent studies showed that CBD oil may help reduce acne because of its anti-inflammatory effect.
One study found that CBD oil prevented sebaceous gland cells from secreting excessive sebum, exerted anti-inflammatory actions and prevented the activation of "pro-acne" agents like inflammatory cytokines.
Another study concluded that CBD may be an efficient and safe way to reduce acne, also because of its remarkable anti-inflammatory qualities.
