Depending on where you live, you may be seeing more advertisements and small popup businesses selling CBD Oil. Even if you live in a state that has not passed a medical marijuana law, this natural plant extract is available to everyone and can contribute to better health.
Even though this oil is extracted from the Cannabis plant, it will not make you “high” or cause any addiction like other prescription pain relievers. It is an all-natural compound that will help you with several different health issues.
Here are 5 benefits that CBD oil can bring to your life:
- Reduce Anxiety and Stress
When the body is stressed, it releases a hormone called Cortisol. One of the best and most natural ways to reduce stress, and avoid the hormone Cortisol, is to take CBD oil daily. Unlike addictive antidepressants, this plant-based oil works better the more you use it. You will not build up a tolerance to this natural compound. Building up a tolerance to a medication is the reason most people become addicted to pain killers, they need more and more to get the relief they seek.
- Improve Your Sleep
CBD oil contains plant extracts that have been shown to increase the duration and quality of sleep, without leaving you groggy the next morning. Many over the counter drugs, as well as the stronger prescription pills, give people nightmares, can cause walking in their sleep, and most dangerous is the daytime grogginess.
- Reduce Inflammation and Chronic Pain
Many people that suffer from fibromyalgia, arthritis and other “invisible” illnesses have more inflammation in their bodies than those who are healthier. CBD oil, either taken by mouth or rubbed on the skin as a topical healing balm, helps to reduce the body’s inflammation.
The reduction in swelling and tenderness in the muscles and joints leads to less pain. Traditional pain medications are full of side effects, which are not found in CBD oils.
- Help Reduce Neurological Disorder Side Effects
Many individuals that suffer from different neurological disorders have found relief in CBD oils. Those who suffer from debilitating seizures, neuropathy, and even migraines have been given the relief they have been seeking through the use of this natural plant extract.
- Help to Alleviate Skin Issues
CBD oils have been used to help relieve painful acne, psoriasis, and countless other painful skin diseases. Again, the anti-inflammatory properties of this plant-based composites are what helps with various skin problems. The best part about CBD oil is it can work from both the inside, taken as a liquid under the tongue or in a capsule form or as a topical lotion.
CBD oils are not a cure for any illness or disease; however, it has been shown time and time again to help alleviate the painful side effects of most of the worst illnesses. You will need to experiment with different doses of CBD oil until you find the one that works best for your issues.
