ASTHMA AND ALLERGY
Experts in the medical and scientific fields have been exploring the connection between CBD and asthma for many years.
Some reviews indicate that CBD will interact with the endocannabinoid system to reduce mucus production.
In a recent report by CBD clinical, cannabidiol functions as an immune modulator, and can also help reduce inflammation of the respiratory tract, so many allergy sufferers could find improvement in their condition,
Dr. Philip Blair, an endocannabinologist, explained that asthma responds well to oral CBD, and recommends taking CBD oil orally, or by using a vape pen (5).
Since the endocannabinoid system (ECS) helps to regulate multiple functions in the body, CBD works to regulate our wake/sleep cycles.
CBD has been shown to influence protein synthesis in the hypothalamus gland, which has a primary function in the management of alertness.
CBD can therefore help give the system an extra kick – which can translate into an increase in energy and focus, when administered in smaller doses.
This is because the body is returning to a state of harmony and homeostasis, the energy expenditure becomes naturally aligned. The bonus here is that a CBD energy boost can compare to caffeine – without feeling wired, or keeping you awake at night.
LOVE YOUR GUT
Gut and bowel disorders affect millions globally every day. Symptoms of the disorder can include abdominal pain, bloating, constipation, weight gain, and fatigue. This can be changed.
The incredible complexity of the gut and its importance to our overall health is an expanding topic in the health and wellness community.
Numerous studies over the last decade have demonstrated links between gut health and the immune system, mood, and mental health.
CBD has been shown to stop intestinal inflammation before it even has a chance to develop.
Results were noted in a recent study by researchers examining colon samples from ulcerative colitis patients taking CBD oil (6).
CBD FOR ALZHEIMER'S
Whilst medical and scientific research continues, scientists have discovered that CBD may be used as a therapeutic aid for neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and dementia.
This year, the Institute for Natural Healing reported that CBD can help with promoting neurogenesis and memory performance.
A recent study that gave cannabis oil to mice with symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease showed an increased ability for learning, and less evidence of amyloid clumps (protein plaque build up in the brain) (7).
The abovementioned is by no means a comprehensive list, and it’s not designed to replace medical advice. As research and studies continue, exploration into the many benefits of CBD and its isolate products is an ever expanding market.
The following ailments have also featured in several trails and studies, which we feel are worth a mention that CBD could help with:
– anxiety and depression
– cluster and other headaches
– post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
– multiple sclerosis (MS)
– lung conditions
– Parkinson’s disease
– Epilepsy and seizures
