Benefits of Using CBD

Article written by Express CBD Store

Although CBD has been used for healing for many years, it has recently gained momentum and popularity within the US. CBD is short for cannabidiol, a cannabis compound that has many significant medical benefits, but does not give the person using it the “high” usually associated with cannabis.

Since CBD is non-psychoactive, patients who are suffering from anxiety, chronic pain, psychosis, or other types of pains use CBD oil, CBD water, hemp water, or hemp oil for relief. There are almost no FDA approved CBD products since it is a natural ingredient and CBD is completely illegal in only four US states; Idaho, South Dakota, Nebraska, and Kansas.

CBD benefits are conducted from research and personal experiences, not FDA approved. The many benefits of it include natural pain relief and anti-inflammatory properties. In a world where many have abused over-the-counter drugs to relieve pain, and suffered horrible side effects from it, many are turning to healthier alternatives. With CBD, the receptors in the brain and immune system help reduce inflammation and alleviate pain, without the side effects typically seen with pills.

Another benefit of CBD oil treatment is the reduction and treatment of seizures. Until recently, science has been unable to provide evidence that CBD has helped young adults suffering from Dravet syndrome. Recent testing has shed some light on how CBD can help reduce seizures by up to 38.9%.

Many take CBD to treat anxiety, because they don’t want the “high” that cannabis brings with it. CBD has proven to reduce subjective anxiety, particularly in the limbic and paralimbic brain areas.
