It seems that no matter where you look these days, CBD is everywhere. CBD became quite the buzz word since hemp was removed from the Schedule 1 drug list by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency; once a handful of states even fully legalized the recreational use of marijuana the interest in the substance grew exponentially. Offered in oil form, tinctures, creams and gels, capsules, sublingual sprays, transdermal patches, and even vapors, there is no shortage of ways people can experience the benefits of CBD. But many people are wondering, what are the real benefits of this supposed miracle substance? Is CBD really as powerful and healing as so many people now claim it is?

Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is a natural remedy for many common ailments. There are 104 chemical compounds, referred to as cannabinoids, found in the marijuana plant. Cannabidiol, or CBD, is merely one of these 104 compounds. The most commonly known and arguably the most popular compound found in the marijuana plant is tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as THC. THC is a psychoactive compound, causing the sensation of a “high” feeling. Unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive, making it an appealing option for people who are looking for the natural pain relief from cannabis without the mood and mind-altering effects of THC.

CBD is not only gaining popularity in the health and wellness sectors, but it is also gaining some scientific backing. Quite a few recent scientific studies confirm it may help treat a variety of common ailments including chronic pain and anxiety. Here are three health benefits of CBD that have been backed by scientific evidence!

Pain Relief

CBD has recently been proven to be one of the compounds in THC that contributes to pain relief. Our bodies contain a system called the endocannabinoid system, or ECS. This system is involved in regulating a variety of functions in our bodies including sleep, appetite, and PAIN. Our bodies produce endocannabinoids which are neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors in our bodies. Studies show that CBD may help reduce chronic pain by altering endocannabinoid receptor activity, interacting with neurotransmitters and even reducing inflammation.

A few scientific studies on CBD and pain relief have been completed using both rats and humans. One study in rats concluded that CBD injections were successful at reducing pain when it came to surgical incisions. Several studies involving humans have found that CBD combined with THC is an effective pain reliever for people suffering from multiple sclerosis and arthritis.

Acne Attacker

Acne, a common skin irritation that is affecting nearly 10% of our population, is thought to be caused by a variety of factors. Bacteria, genetics, underlying skin inflammation, and overproduction of sebum are all contributing factors of acne, but some recent studies on CBD show that CBD oil may help treat this common problem.

CBD has anti-inflammatory properties and an ability to reduce sebum production – the oily secretion made by our sebaceous glands which contributes to oily skin and acne when excreted in excess. A recent test-tube study showed CBD oil prevented sebaceous gland cells from excessively secreting sebum while another study concluded CBD may be an effective and safe acne treatment due to is anti-inflammatory qualities.

A Healthy Heart

Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in the United States. Recent studies using CBD have shown that CBD consumption has many benefits for the heart and circulatory system. One of the most remarkable things found was CBDs’ ability to lower high blood pressure, a health condition linked to many risks such as stroke and heart attack.

10 healthy men, each given a dose of 600mg of CBD oil, were found to have a reduced resting blood pressure rate compared to men that received the placebo. Additionally, when placed on a heart stress test, the men who received the CBD also responded to the stress test with a smaller blood pressure increase than the other men receiving the stress test.
