Unless you’ve been living under a rock CBD oil is the latest oil that has taken the wellness world by storm. No as big as coconut but a close 2nd.
What is CBD?
I’ve seen this oil all over my Instagram feed but never actually knew what it is. Basically, CBD stands for Cannabidiol, it’s one of the 113 cannabinoids that can be found in the cannabis plant. And before you ask, No you won’t get high from it.
What Does It Do?
It’s claimed to help with Chronic pain, anxiety, depression, acne, and a multitude of other things but we’ll focus on these disorders for now.
I always worry when a cure a product comes on the market. I’m a very skeptical person. However with me suffering from depression and many people suffering from chronic pain why not look into it a bit more?
According to Medical News Today a study in the European Journal of Pain they applied a topical gel containing CBD to rats for 4 days. They noticed a significant drop in inflammation and signs of pain without any side effects.
Also with it having some anti-inflammatory properties, it’ll take care of that inflamed pimples on your face.
I couldn’t find any studies that showed CBD in relation to anxiety or depression however, I did read about Jennifer’s experiment with using CBD oil for her anxiety. She did notice minimal changes but she also changed a lot of her daily habit like working out and eating better along with therapy.
CBD Side effects?
Hardly any really. They are:
.Diarrhea. Nausea. Dry Mouth, Low Blood Sugar.
There isn’t really enough information about CBD oil to say whether it’s good or bad even though it’s been out since the ’40s. I consider trying it at least for the pain, not so much the depression or anxiety.
What would or have you tried CBD oil? What’s you’re experience?
