Cannabidiol (CBD) Oil

Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is created by extracting the CBD from a marijuana plant and then diluting it with another oil. Commonly used oils to dilute it range from hemp seed to coconut oil. CBD is a cannabinoid and just one of the compounds that is found in marijuana plants. It lacks psychoactive ingredients that the THC does, but does still contain many medicinal and therapeutic benefits.

Patients will prefer the use of CBD oil if they want relief from their symptoms without feeling the euphoric or stoned feeling that happens when smoking cannabis. Cannabis has a a history that dates way back to 2900 B.C. Studies have shown that CBD is the part of marijuana that is responsible for the relief from pain that people experience when using it. CBD affects the endocannabinoid system in the body by having a chance on receptor activity. A research performed on rats revealed that the rats had a much lower pain response to surgical incision after they were given CBD injections.

Another relative study shows that oral CBD lowered the pain associated with the nerves. In addition, there have been numerous different studies in the combination of THC and CBD for multiple sclerosis patients that are experience ongoing pain. Patients with mood disorders have also showed improvement when using CBD oil. Many have chosen CBD oil as a more naturalistic approach as opposed to pharmaceutical drugs.

A study in Brazil revealed that a 300 mg dose of CBD before a public speaking test lowered the anxiety that they experienced by a significant amount. Recent evidence has shown that people who want to quit smoking might benefit from CBD. The FDA has recently approved the use of CBD oil for epilepsy patients and the associated seizures that are caused by the syndrome.
