CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a chemical compound from the cannabis plant. It's a naturally occurring substance that's used in products like oils and edibles to impart a feeling of relaxation and calm. Unlike its cousin tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it's not psychoactive.
Sure we’ve all felt anxious at times but for many, it can be debilitating. Affecting 40 million Americans on a daily basis, anxiety disorders are the most prominent mental disorder in the United States.
According to research published in Neurotherapeutics, CBD may be a successful option in reducing General Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD), and Panic Disorders.
A person’s ability to put forth mental effort towards the most pertinent information or tasks within their surroundings is known as mental focus or concentration. Psychology specialists considers the ability to focus cognitively, a skill in which people can strengthen with practice. Improving focus requires attentiveness to suitable cues while disregarding irrelevant signals that cause distractions . That being said, just about everyone, at one time or another, has experienced difficulty retaining focus.
Insomnia is a prevalent sleep disorder that affects millions of people nationwide. Symptoms typically consist of difficulty falling asleep, trouble staying asleep, and a lack of feeling well-rested which can decline state of mind, energy levels, work efficiency, health, and overall quality of life. Insomnia usually links to poor sleep habits or lack of exercise, but it can also underlie anxiety, depression, or even chronic illnesses. People can experience either short-term insomnia, lasting a few days or weeks, or long-term which continues over a month .
For years, CBD has been recommended by medical professionals and holistic healers around the world for being one of the best perceived natural approaches to reducing chronic pain. Even more recently, health practitioners have started recommending CBD for the treatment of more common symptoms like migraines and chronic neck, knee, and back pain. Here in the United States, new exciting applications are being tested to identify the true potential of CBD as a treatment option for more severe conditions like multiple sclerosis and fibromyalgia.
Living with any inflammatory disorder requires constant rigorous management. With symptoms like swelling, tissue damage, and chronic pain, it's clear why inflammation often affects everything from strenuous activities to the most mundane tasks.
Recent studies demonstrate the ability to use cannabinoids such as CBD, as anti-inflammatory agents. This is accomplished by initiating apoptosis, restricting cell proliferation, preventing the body’s production of cytokine, and promoting T-regulatory cells. The results of these studies indicate just how protective the endogenous cannabinoid system is against many inflammatory issues .
Affecting roughly 14% of the U.S. population, migraines are responsible for nearly $20 billion dollars in missed work and poor productivity every year. At times, that constant, throbbing pain can be quite incapacitating.
Several recent medical studies have established a connection between migraines and a deficiency of natural endocannabinoids produced by the human body. Results from these studies strongly suggest that the use of CBD and other cannabinoids help the body create and utilize more of its own endocannabinoids. Allowing your body to successfully counteract the neurological imbalance linked to migraines.
