One of the hottest items on the market today when it comes to health and wellness has been CBD. Many people have seen the term popping up on billboards, online, and in their local stores, but most aren’t familiar with the term or what it can actually do for you.
Because of government regulations regarding CBD, it’s not possible for PurityCBD™ (or any other group) to make scientific claims about the substance and its benefits. However, we do encourage you to research agricultural hemp CBD to see if it’s right for you personally.
Here, then, are some things you need to know about CBD. We’ll discuss the general benefits that have been attributed to it as well as suggestions for those who are interested in trying it.
What is CBD?
CBD stands for Cannabidiol and it is one of over 120 naturally occurring compounds found in Hemp Cannabis, an annual herbaceous flowering plant.
PurityCBD™ carefully and safely extracts “Full-Spectrum CBD,” which means we use the entire hemp plant in our products for maximum benefits. Studies have shown that CBD collected from the plant in isolation isn’t as beneficial as when it’s collected using the other compounds found in the plant.
This is attributed to the “Entourage Effect,” which basically states that the substances working together are more effective than those working alone. With our proprietary blend of organic, Raw Full Spectrum hemp extracts we ensure all the key pieces of the hemp plant are present to allow its full potential of benefits to be expressed.
This sets PurityCBD™ apart from other companies on the market emphasizing the purity of product and overall effectiveness.
What are the Benefits of CBD?
Many studies have been conducted providing anecdotal evidence of the benefits you could experience from taking this compound. They include:
Currently, the United States has a serious problem with how pain management is handled. The over-reliance on opioid drugs to treat pain has led to a crisis in many communities.
Those who suffer from chronic pain are finding that these narcotics are losing their effectiveness over time, requiring higher dosages, and leaving the user unable to function while taking the drug.
Cannabidiol is an alternative that could help in this area. CBD has anti-inflammatory qualities that can reduce inflammation for those suffering from joint pain (including multiple sclerosis patients and arthritis sufferers). It’s also been found to have a positive impact on the body’s neurotransmitters that help regulate pain naturally.
Anxiety and Depression
CBD’s ability to treat depression and anxiety have been linked to the compound’s interaction with serotonin as a key component of this benefit.
Serotonin is produced by the body to help regulate mood and prevent serious anxiety and depression from occurring. Those who lack serotonin may find themselves feeling down and depressed often.
CBD may be able to alleviate those problems without some of the negative side-effects found with prescription anti-depressants. It’s also been found to help with insomnia, a condition that can exacerbate anxiety and depression.
CBD has been shown to have anti-convulsive and anti-spasmodic properties which can help alleviate seizures. By acting on the neurotransmitters in the brain, CBD may be able to benefit those who suffer from seizures by either reducing the amount or the severity of their seizures.
Cancer Symptoms and Side-Effects
Cancer is a particularly insidious disease because the treatments are often almost as brutal as the disease itself.
CBD has been shown to help with some of the side-effects of these treatments, especially with nausea, vomiting, and loss of appetite.
Chemotherapy, especially, makes it difficult for cancer patients to eat because of severe nausea. This can, in turn, weaken the body which isn’t getting (and keeping) the proper nutrients. CBD can be used to combat this.
In addition, CBD has anti-tumor qualities that may be able to reduce the size of certain cancerous tumors.
Psychosis and PTSD
In some cases, CBD may also be able to help treat certain mental disorders thanks to its anti-psychotic and anti-depressant qualities.
CBD may not be for everybody. There are a few drug interactions that can be dangerous.
Particularly, those who are on blood thinners such as coumadin may find that CBD exacerbates the blood thinning quality.
Also, if you take a medication that says, “Do not eat grapefruit when you are taking this medication”, then you should hold off from taking CBD. As with any supplement, you should always consult with a medical professional before taking CBD due to these possible drug interactions.
Research is Helping Us Understand the Many Benefits of CBD
