More People Using CBD For Overall Health – And Why You Should, Too

A new study out of San Diego, California has revealed that more people are now using cannabidiol (CBD) products either for overall well-being or for treating certain conditions.


The data, derived out of a survey published in Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research, was conducted by researchers from the San Diego State University and the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon. The 2,409 participants, who were aged between 55 and 74, were asked about their consumption of CBD products. Sixty-two percent of them said that they use CBD for treating specific conditions; the most common of which were pain, anxiety, and depression. Thirty-six percent reported that CBD worked “very well by itself” in treating their conditions, while 4.3% said that they found CBD to be ineffective.


The study’s authors concluded by saying: “The use of CBD among individuals for both specific health conditions and general health and well-being is widespread. ... CBD is being used as a specific therapy for a number of diverse medical conditions - particularly pain and inflammatory disorders, in addition to anxiety, depression, and sleep disorders. A large percentage of respondents indicate that CBD treats their condition(s) effectively in the absence of conventional medicine and with non-serious adverse effects. These data provide a compelling rationale for further research to better understand the therapeutic potential of CBD in treating chronic pain, anxiety, depression, sleep disorders, and other medical conditions."


How And Why You Should Be Using CBD Products


If you aren’t using CBD yet as part of your daily regimen, now’s the perfect time to do so.


Here’s why:


Stress relief: Studies show that consuming CBD in doses as low as 2.5 to 10mg a day is effective in reducing the symptoms of anxiety. Other studies also show that CBD is beneficial as a neuroprotective antioxidant, which can help protect the brain from the effects of aging. If you get very little sleep, taking some CBD oil in the morning is an excellent way to protect your brain from the harmful effects of sleep deprivation.


Pain: Whether you suffer from pain occasionally from muscle aches and pains, or a specific medical condition, taking CBD oil can reduce the severity of pain without the need to take harmful and addictive painkillers. Research shows that CBD reduces chronic pain by affecting the endocannabinoid receptor activity, decreasing inflammation, and interacting with the brain’s neurotransmitters. By treating pain regardless of the cause, quality of life is restored and you can enjoy better, longer sleep.


Anxiety and depression: Anxiety and depression are two of the most common mental health conditions that affect a significant majority of the population. Whether chronic or not, anxiety and depression can have a serious impact on your health and overall well-being. Pharmaceutical drugs and other unhealthy outlets like drinking and smoking are usually the first course of action for treating these conditions, but regular consumption of CBD oil can help treat and prevent these debilitating mental conditions. Studies show that people who consume CBD have significantly decreased anxiety levels, an improvement in cognitive function, and a reduction in discomfort. CBD oil has also been used to efficiently and safely treat anxiety and insomnia in children who have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).


Support heart health: Studies show that consuming CBD offers multiple benefits for the heart as well as the circulatory system, and it can even help people who suffer from high blood pressure, a condition that is associated with an increased risk for heart attack, stroke, and metabolic system. One study in particular showed that 600mg of CBD oil was linked to a stabilization in high blood pressure. Other studies also show that CBD treats the cell death and inflammation caused by heart disease thanks to its powerful stress-relieving and antioxidant properties.


How To Use CBD Oil Daily


You don’t need a lot of CBD oil to benefit your health, because just a little bit goes a long way. You can even microdose CBD until you find a dose that suits you the best. Generally speaking, a microdose is usually anywhere between 2.5 and 5mg, a dose far too low for treating a specific medical condition although this is suitable for daily consumption. Studies show that even low doses of CBD is effective in treating inflammation, the root cause of many chronic and debilitating conditions that we are prone to especially when we’re under a great deal of stress.
