In recent years, CBD (cannabidiol) has received a lot of positive press, specifically surrounding the alleged advantages connected with physical health and emotional wellbeing.
Whether you are considering launching a new line of CBD products in your vape shop, or you are considering using CBD oil personally, then either way, you should most definitely continue reading.
Here are five purported benefits of CBD.
Assistance with Helping to Reduce Anxiety Symptoms
First and foremost, even though there has been very little research in terms of clinical and scientific trials looking into the effects of CBD on people living with varying levels of anxiety, there have been several placebo-based studies conducted in both the UK and the US.
One such study involved fifty men who either had been previously diagnosed with anxiety, or reported many signs and symptoms of anxiety, whereby half were given a dose of CBD oil and the other half a simple pill made from sugar.
All fifty men were due to speak at a public event in front of lots of people and as they did so, after taking their supplement, both their heart rate and blood pressure were measured. In the case of the twenty-five men who were given the placebo, no notable changes occurred.
However, those men who had taken 300mg of CBD oil reported drastically lower and less-distracting anxiety symptoms, with the men who had taken either 600mg or 100mg not experiencing the same benefits.
Neuroprotective Beneficial Properties
Another purported benefit that is often associated with the consumption of CBD oil is a fledgling connection between the reduction of pain in people who are living with MS (multiple sclerosis).
Providing you only ever deal with a reputable and established CBD manufacturer, and therefore, will only be taking (or indeed, selling) high-quality assured CBD oil, there could also be a link between such oil and an improvement in people living with the following:
- Cerebral palsy and other neurological disorders
- Huntingdon’s disease
- ASD (autism spectrum disorder)
- Parkinson’s disease
In the case of the latter, it is largely accurate to state that there is no conclusive and scientifically proven link between CBD oil and Parkinson’s disease; however, there is a considerable volume of anecdotal evidence, combined with numerous smaller studies, to show that it could indeed have some level of positive impact.
Such studies, crucially, should you have a vested interest in this particular purported connection, are usually ones undertaken with animals, rather than human studies.
Improved Sleep Patterns
In today’s modern world, the vast majority of people are likely to have a jam-packed schedule each and every day and as such, their sleeping patterns will inevitably be affected.
Taking a monitored amount of CBD oil in your normal vaping unit could well go to assisting with how well you sleep, both in terms of the duration and the quality.
Other suggestions that could help you to improve your sleep include, amongst a host of others, the following:
- Stop using technological devices emitting blue light in the bedroom
- Try and stick to a regular time to go to bed each evening
- Stop drinking alcohol too close to bedtime
- Make your bedroom as comfortable and relaxing an environment as possible
- Keep your bedroom temperature at room temperature rather than too hot
- Try deep breathing and meditative techniques in an evening
Additionally, some people believe that more natural supplements can have a positive impact on sleeping patterns, such as l-theanine, valerian root, glycine, lavender and ginkgo biloba.
Help With Signs and Symptoms of PTSD
According to a study into the potentially positive impacts of CBD oil conducted in 2018 by researchers for the Journal of Alternative and Contemporary Medicine, when combined with psychiatric care, CBD oil appeared to reduce depression and anxiety in people with PTSD.
Post-traumatic stress disorder can be an exceedingly harrowing disorder to live with, and out of the eleven people who took part in the test, ten of them reported an overall decrease in the severity of their PTSD signs and symptoms.
A Way to Help Complications with Diabetes
The fifth and final purported benefit of the safe consumption of CBD oil is linked to reducing the levels of glucose in people who are living with diabetes.
Pre-clinical tests and trials seemed to find that CBD oil works to reduce the effects of high glucose levels on different areas of the body, which usually form one of the precursors to developing diabetes in the future.
It is thought that, should official clinical trials produce the same findings, safe usage of CBD oil could decrease the body’s resistance to insulin and could be used as a more natural treatment for people with diabetes.
