There are many people in the world who still don’t fully understand what CBD is and how it can benefit health. Even Canadians with the ability to grow their own medical marijuana simply by filling out an ACMPR application might not understand the miraculous powers of CBD.

The Basics of CBD

Cannabidiol, CBD for short, is one of the main chemical compounds of the cannabis plant. Unlike its counterpart, THC, CBD has no psychoactive properties and doesn’t actually get you high. However, it offers the same health benefits of THC, if not more.

CBD is becoming one of the most talked-about substances in the world of health and wellbeing. There is quite a bit of controversy surrounding CBD, mostly because it is derived from the cannabis plant. But this controversy is completely uncalled for since CBD doesn’t actually get you high. In fact, there have been numerous research studies conducted on CBD and its benefits.

The Many Health Benefits of CBD

There is solid proof that CBD can enhance health in several ways, and you don’t have to worry about getting high while you become a healthier version of yourself. It’s more than possible to use CBD right before you head to work for the day. Here are just a few ways that CBD can benefit health.

Pain Relief

For thousands of years, the medical marijuana has been used for the treatment pain. Within the past few decades, scientists have discovered that marijuana’s CBD helps to reduce pain by impacting the body’s pain receptors. There is even a drug on the market now called Sativex than contains CBD for pain treatment.

Anxiety & Depression

Anxiety and depression are treated with pharmaceuticals that have loads of harmful side effects. By treating your mental health disorder with CBD instead, you can avoid these side effects all together. Using CBD oil daily has also been proven to treat other anxiety disorders like depression, PTSD, and insomnia.

Other Uses of CBD

Chronic pain and anxiety are the most common medical ailments treated with CBD. That doesn’t mean they’re the only ones. CBD is also used for treatment of:

  • Cancer-related symptoms
  • Skin issues (like acne)
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Substance abuse treatment
  • Diabetes prevention
