CBD Oil Benefits: 3 Powerful Reasons You Might Want To Give It A Try!
CBD oil has many benefits, now experienced by millions of people worldwide. Scientific studies and anecdotal evidence reveal many benefits to a vast number of physical and emotional conditions. From anxiety to skincare, CBD continues to gain popularity as a natural, non-toxic, non-psychoactive supplement and treatment. What is it about CBD oil that has placed it center stage in the natural health and wellness industry? Let’s take a look.
What is the simple explanation of how CBD works in the body?
The CBD molecule has a similar composition to chemicals created by the body’s own Endocannabinoid System, ECS. The ECS is present throughout the brain and organs of the body, including the skin and the immune system. The primary ‘goal’ of the ECS is to maintain homeostasis or balance in the body and it’s various systems. It is CBDs actions on receptors in the ECS, primarily CB1 and CB2 receptors, (although it is more complex than this) which account for the expression of CBDs beneficial properties in and on the body. These beneficial properties include:
Daily dosing of CBD oil has the potential to treat anxiety related symptoms. The anti-anxiety properties of CBD allow you to experience a feeling of calm and relaxation as well as mood elevation, due to the receptor activity in the Serotonin Pathway of the brain and body. This also includes providing a deep REM sleep, which is paramount for healing and maintaining homeostasis (balance) in the body. CBD oil can safely be dosed in drops under the tongue or capsules, throughout the day. CBD is non-toxic; therefore, if you are dosing small amounts over the course of a day you can safely maintain your comfortable level of mood, relaxation and calm.
Analgesic (Pain Relief)
CBD has been shown to provide fast relief for pain from arthritis, rheumatism, and many auto immune disorders. In addition, CBD is effective in releasing tense muscles and easing sore muscle pain from extensive workouts, athletics, dancing and any other kind of sport or activity. In addition to internal dosing of CBD for pain, topical creams and salves can be rubbed directly on the sore muscles, joints or area for local pain management. It has been found that, with local pain management, taking CBD oil internally and applying it topically to the painful area can provide fast, effective relief.
CBD Topicals For Skincare
CBD infused creams, salves, lotions and serums provide many benefits for daily skincare. CBD infused natural creams have also been shown to be effective in relieving symptoms of eczema, psoriasis and other types of skin disorders.
CBD is a natural compound that is a more powerful antioxidant than vitamin C and E. This means that CBD powerfully neutralizes free radicals on the skin. Since free radicals have been found to be the number one culprit of aging skin, CBD infused skincare products have quickly become a favorite for anti-aging.
These three powerful benefits of CBD impact a vast range of health and wellness issues. This one cannabinoid, CBD, has been found to demonstrably improve the quality of life when supplemented daily.
