CBD oil, formally known as Cannabidoil has been increasing in popularity lately, so you may be wondering what all of the fuss is about. In a nutshell, there are over 100 chemical compounds found in the marijuana plant and CBD is just one of them. You may be thinking what I was thinking when I started learning about this compound--are people getting “high” with this increasingly common product found in a variety of foods and beverages? The short answer is no. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the primary psychoactive cannabinoid found in the marijuana plant and that is the component that results in the sensation of getting “high” which is associated with the cannabis plant. CBD, unlike TCH, has no psychoactive properties.
Interestingly enough, research is possibly pointing to an association of a variety of health benefits with CBD oil consumption. In addition, it can be to relieve pain that stems from conditions such as cancer, nerve damage, arthritis, and autoimmune diseases. CBD oil is an appealing option for those who are searching for pain relief, without the side effects associated with altering the state of mind as THC-containing marijuana or particular pharmaceutical drugs may cause.
In addition to relieving physical pain, CBD oil may also alleviate anxiety and depression. According to the World Health Organization, the most common contributor to disability, worldwide is depression, while disorders related to anxiety are ranked as the sixth most common. Depression is commonly treated with pharmaceuticals which can result in a variety of unfavorable side effects such as insomnia, agitation, and drowsiness. Based on several studies, CBD oil is looking like a promising alternative to mental health without the use of unnatural chemicals found in drugs.
