One of the major benefits of CBD oil is it is not typically psychoactive, despite coming from the marijuana plant. This is because most CBD oils do not have THC, the component in cannabis that is responsible for the psychoactive reactions. As such, those who use CBD oil can experience relief from symptoms and enjoy its benefits without psychoactive effects that would impair day-to-day functioning.
Although more research is still needed, CBD oil seems to have some excellent benefits in terms of reducing anxiety. Various clinical trials, epidemiological studies, and experimental research studies have looked at CBD oil as a treatment for anxiety. A 2015 report in Neurotherapeutics indicated that CBD oil can provide benefits for generalized anxiety disorder, as well as obsessive-compulsive disorder, social anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Today, many people use CBD oil to control pain from a range of conditions, including cancer and arthritis. Humans have been using marijuana to treat pain since at least 2900 B.C. CBD oil is a modern incarnation of this treatment that allows for pain relief without the psychoactive side effects of using the entire plant.
There is also research indicating that CBD oil can improve overall heart health. Specifically, research has shown that this oil can lower high blood pressure. This is significant since high blood pressure increases the risk of metabolic syndrome, heart attacks, and strokes. Some researchers feel that some of the reduction in blood pressure from CBD oil comes from its ability to reduce anxiety and stress. In animals, CBD oil has shown the potential to reduce cell death and inflammation from heart disease.
Another benefit of CBD oil comes in the form of helping people overcome addiction. A review published in Substance Abuse in 2015 looked at 14 previous studies; it discovered that CBD oil might have therapeutic effects on those with addiction to cocaine, opioids, and psychostimulants, as well as tobacco and cannabis. Studies in rats have shown that CBD can reduce heroin-seeking behavior and morphine dependence.
