Several beakers full of CBD oil with a scientist testing a batch in the background.

Pure CBD Oil is King 

Cannabinoid (CBD) oil is a product created by mixing CBD in a carrier oil such as coconut oil. CBD is not psychoactive, so it doesn’t provide that high feeling that tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) provides. Data from experts suggest that CBD oil may be beneficial for providing relief from several health conditions. Together, we will look at the potential benefits that make pure CBD oil stand out from the rest.   

 

Mental Health  

Research suggests that CBD may be able to provide a sense of calm by altering how your brain receptors respond to serotonin, a chemical that profoundly affects your mental health. These receptors are attached to your cells in your brain, which receives and processes chemical messages and enables your cells to respond appropriately to various stimuli.   

 

According to this study, a 600 mg dosage of CBD may reduce social anxiety and make it easier for people to manage stress; these results were drawn after providing CBD to participants before they underwent a stress test. There are several animal studies that suggest the factors of CBD that may provide stress-relief; these factors include:  

  • Lowered stress levels  
  • Induced sleep in case of insomnia and sleeplessness  
  • Improved health conditions related to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)  
  • Reduced the physiological effects of anxiety such as elevated heart rate  

 

Anti-Seizure  

Although the research about the anti-seizure properties is still in the early days, CBD is considered a possible treatment for epilepsy. Treating epilepsy is the only FDA-approved use of a CBD based drug named Epidiolex; it is used to treat two rare but severe types of epilepsy. Research is still underway to determine the frequency at which CBD reduces seizures in people with epilepsy and whether it is safe to use. According to the American Epilepsy Society, the preliminary data from CBD research shows promise for managing disorders that cause seizures, including epilepsy.   

 

In 2016, researchers conducted a study on 214 epilepsy patients in which the participants were given a 2-5mg of CBD every day along with their existing epilepsy treatment. After monitoring the patients for 12 weeks, checking the seizure frequency, and recording the side effects, the researchers conducting the research concluded that the seizure frequency was reduced by 36%, and adverse side effects were experienced by 12% of the participants.    

 

Neuroprotective  

Researchers are studying a receptor in our brain known as CB1 and finding out how CBD interacts with this receptor to aid people with neurodegenerative disorders. These neurodegenerative disorders cause the nerves and the brain to deteriorate over time, and they commonly include stroke, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis (MS), etc. Research is still underway about the benefits of CBD oil for these conditions. Still, the preliminary data show that CBD’s anti-inflammation properties have the potential to manage the inflammation, which can make things worse. More research is required to properly understand the effects and benefits of using CBD oil to combat neurodegenerative diseases.  

 

Joint Support and Anti-Inflammatory   

CBD oil’s effects on our brain’s receptors may also help us manage pain more efficiently and effectively. According to a study, cannabis and CBD are more beneficial when taken after a person undergoes chemotherapy. National Institutes of Health is sponsoring several pre-clinical studies trying to understand the role of cannabis in relieving health conditions. These health conditions include:  

  • MS pain  
  • Spinal cord injuries  
  • Arthritis  
  • Chronic pain  
  • Muscle pain   

 

In Canada and the United Kingdom, a CBD and THC based drug named Nabiximols (Sativex) is approved for treating pain caused by MS. Research relating to this medication suggests that the CBD is more dominant in the drug when it comes to combating the pain due to its anti-inflammatory properties. More clinical trials and research are required to know if it is safe to manage pain.   

 

Anti-Acne  

CBD is believed to interact with our immune system receptors, which may help reduce our body’s overall inflammation; these anti-inflammation properties of CBD may aid people in acne management. Journal of Clinical Investigation conducted a human study to determine the anti-inflammatory effects of CBD. The study found out that CBD oil prevented or reduced activity in the sebaceous glands (these glands create sebum which is an oily substance our body creates for keeping our skin hydrated and when contributed too much, it can cause acne). We currently only have preliminary data about the benefits of CBD oil for treating acne, so it would not be right to claim that it cures acne. However, if you want to use CBD oil for treating acne, you must first discuss it with a healthcare expert.    

 

Cancer Supportive Care  

Although the research about the role of CBD is still in the early stages, the studies investigating the effects of CBD on the growth of cancer cells show promise. According to the National Cancer Institute (NCI), CBD may alleviate the side effects of cancer treatment and various health conditions caused by cancer. It is important to note that neither NCI nor we endorse cannabis and any other type of cannabis product to treat cancer. We are only telling you that CBD is considered to change cell-reproduction and believed to have the ability to reduce inflammation, which may aid cancer patients already receiving traditional cancer treatments such as chemotherapy.   

 

Conclusion  

There are just a few of the reasons why we call pure CBD oil a king in the global market; there are several others. When we say pure, we mean oil produced and sold by reputable parties and tested by an independent lab. You can find such pure CBD oil and other CBD products at Panacea Life Sciences and have those products delivered to your doorstep.
