CBD or Cannabis Oil
Cannabis Oil or CBD oil is an oil that is natural and safe and is currently being used to treat many different types of medical conditions. This oil has only recently become popular, because it has been found to alleviate so many different types of symptoms from various medical conditions.
Up until the 20th century, CBD oil had a longstanding reputation as a reliable herb which could be used to help a number of conditions. This medicinal oil is extracted from the buds or the leaves of specific types of marijuana plants that are high in cannabidiol.
Studies have shown that the CBD oil can be used to naturally reduce symptoms from a wide variety of medical conditions including anxiety disorders, epilepsy, heart disease, Parkinson’s and even multiple sclerosis. Most recently, studies seem to suggest that cannabis oil may even help to treat cancer.
Additional cannabidiol study is necessary to see if the CBD oil has a positive impact on specific types of cancer. CBD’s greatest use appears to be in reducing pain, and treating seizures in both adults and children. Because the oil is made with only natural ingredients, it is very safe.
Research seems to suggest that CBD oil works by affecting certain receptors in the brain which control a wide range of bodily processes and functions. Basically, the oil slows down the signals sent from the brain to the body while activating other receptors which control the production of certain neurotransmitters like dopamine.
Cannabis oils are not intended to be used to get a “high”. The levels of the chemical THC are very low in this type of oil, and users do not experience any neurological effects from the use of the oil. Some users do feel that the oil tends to sedate them, but the sedated effects are not at all pronounced, and many people with sleep disorders are finding it beneficial.
One of the best things about Cannabis oil is that it is not known to be addictive, like the compound THC that is also found in the marijuana plant. CBD Oil produced for medicinal purposes which contains little or no THC is legal to be used in all 50 states.
