You’ve probably gleaned by now that CBD has many benefits. (If not, it does.) And it’s not just us spinning up some yarn to boost sales. The science backs this up.
The research into CBD’s powers is evolving — we’re still in the relatively early days of even being able to study the medicinal value of cannabis and its cannabinoids (like CBD). But, much of the current data is favorable.
Many existing studies have isolated particular ways in which CBD could do your mind and body good. And the mass of clinical evidence is ever-growing. It’s definitely something to stayed tuned in to.
Now, current laws prohibit us from saying that CBD can prevent, treat, or cure specific medical conditions. But, we can tout its extraordinary ability to support both physical and mental health. This is a great step in the direction of promoting well-being!
That science is proving out a beneficial link between CBD and various health issues is a BIG DEAL. After all, who doesn’t like the idea of adding another natural remedy to his or her self-care kit?
So, let’s take a look at what the medical literature reveals. According to Cannabinoids in Health and Disease and Clinicians’ Guide to Cannabidiol and Hemp Oils (and a slew of other studies, articles, and reports), CBD’s been shown to help a bunch of conditions. It’s a truly amazing list — ranging from mental and emotional health issues to gastrointestinal problems to neuromuscular disorders and beyond.
Here are just some of the health challenges that could benefit from your favorite cannabinoid:
The degree to which CBD benefits these conditions varies, as do the ways in which CBD influences the conditions. With continued research, you can expect scientists and medical experts to uncover more ways CBD can positively impact your health.
Discovering CBD’s benefits for health conditions isn’t the only work being done. CBD cultivators and processors are also developing their products to be more effective in your body. For example:
The gist here is that you can count on research and innovation on the commercial side of things as well as the therapeutic side. These advancements could further effect how CBD benefits the listed health conditions (and others!). And the brainiacs in lab coats are already studying this, too!
OK, now you have a grasp on health conditions that respond positively to CBD TLC. Now what? How can you harness some of that goodness for yourself (or your loved ones)?
If you’re taking other medications or supplements for an existing health condition, it’s always a smart idea to check in with your doctor before trying CBD products. While CBD is considered well-tolerated (i.e., few reports of allergic reaction or side effects), it’s contraindicated if you’re on certain drugs or risk factors.
Assuming you get the all-clear and want to give CBD a try, you’ve got options. There are many different preparations to select from, such as:
Finding the right CBD product(s) and regimen may take a bit of trial and error. Everybody and every body is unique and responses to CBD can be just as individualized. We know it can be hard and frustrating, but try to be patient as you’re figuring it out.
We also recommend going back to the science.
There’s a growing body of hard scientific evidence showing that several health conditions — we listed 42 of ‘em! — benefit from CBD. How much CBD helps and the ways in which it works in your body vary.
CBD products are also profiting from the results of scientific research. Innovations in the hemp crops and product technology are improving the quality and potential effectiveness of CBD for the noted health conditions.
Determining the right CBD products and protocol can vary from person to person as well as for different health conditions. It may take some time and experimentation. Consult your doctor before starting a CBD regimen if you have pre-existing conditions and/or want professional advice on how to incorporate CBD into your personal healthcare plan.
