A Brief Overview of Research Stats on CBD

Wondering if CBD Oil is the real deal? The answer can be found in the many research studies that have found genuine medical benefits to using cannabidiol (CBD) as a potential therapeutic treatment for a wide range of diseases and disorders. Here’s a rundown on some of the incredible results.

Anxiety and Depression

Numerous studies have demonstrated the anxiolytic, or anti-anxiety, effects of CBD, due to its effect on neurotransmission. The potential is clear for the treatment of anxiety-based disorders including obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), panic attacks, generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), and social anxiety disorder. Additional studies have also shown the anti-depressive actions of cannabidiol, which means it may also be useful in treating depression and possibly even bipolar disorders.

Schizophrenia

Another potential psychotherapeutic use of CBD is as an antipsychotic for treating schizophrenia. A number of controlled clinical trials have found that CBD was a safe, effective, and well-tolerated treatment for those previously being treated with antipsychotic drugs. In fact, it was found to provide an entirely new mechanism for controlling schizophrenia.

Neurodegenerative Disorders

Because of its anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, antioxidant, antiemetic, anxiolytic and antipsychotic effects, CBD Oil has been found to be effective in relieving symptoms of multiple sclerosis. New research points towards it potential for use in neonatal ischaemia, Huntington's disease (HD) and Parkinson's disease (PD), Alzheimer's disease, and stroke as well.

Epilepsy

A study showed that not only were there no reported side effects to the use of CBD Oil, but the incidence of seizures was either completely eradicated or substantially diminished during treatment. Unfortunately, the introduction of many new pharmaceuticals for the treatment of epilepsy has diminished the focus on the use of cannabidiol and no further research has been conducted.

Sleep Disorders

CBD has been found in research studies to modulate sleep, induce wakefulness, and promote alertness, making it an ideal candidate for the treatment of a number of sleep disorders.

Cancer Treatment & Nausea

Because of its anti-nausea and antiemetic effects, CBD has long been considered as a probable treatment for treating both nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy. Numerous research studies have also shown that CBD may inhibit the growth of certain cancerous tumors, making it a possible treatment for cancer itself, and even has potential for preventing metastasis.

Appetite Stimulation

One of the side effects of a number of diseases including cancer and HIV is loss of appetite, wasting syndrome (cachexia), and/or extreme weight loss. Both natural and synthetic cannabinoids have been shown to combat these symptoms, stabilizing patient weight and preventing further loss.

Diabetes

In one study, CBD treatment was shown to inhibit the development of diabetes due to its autoimmune and anti-inflammatory effects. Other studies have also found cannabinoids to help with diabetic nerve pain.

These are just some of the many proven medical applications of CBD. One of the many things that all these research studies have in common is the lack of any noticeable or detrimental side effects from ingesting cannabidiol. The host of possible side effects associated with even the most common prescription medication, on the other hand, can often make your head spin. CBD Oil is a great alternative treatment for these and possible many more medical conditions.
