The Benefits of CBD Oils

Since all cannabinoids are Schedule I drugs in the US and Schedule II in Canada, you have to jump through a bunch of hoops and red tape to get your hands on it for research.

Research is emerging and more comprehensive studies are needed, but science is getting there. Here’s just a smattering of the things scientists were able to demonstrate that CBD does:

  • Measurably relieved chronic pain in combination with THC[2][3][4]

  • Triggered breast cancer cell death[5] and down-regulated the gene that makes certain aggressive strains of breast cancer proliferate[6]

  • Inhibited lung cancer invasion and metastasis (spread)[7]

  • Significantly reduced multiple sclerosis symptoms in patients in a randomized, placebo-controlled study[8] and a larger series of multi-center randomized placebo-controlled trials[9]

  • In larger doses (160mg), it helped participants you sleep — even in people who typically suffer from insomnia.[10]

  • Higher doses decreased anxiety during public speaking.[11]

  • Increased alertness in small doses (15 mg) in humans and rats.[12][13]

  • Prevents seizures.[14][15][16]

  • Decreased social anxiety by regulating the amygdala, a part of your brain that controls fear.[17]

  • Substantially improved symptoms of schizophrenia.[18]

  • Showed antioxidant activity. A test tube study showed that CBD protected neurons from inflammation and oxidative stress better than both vitamin C and vitamin E,[19] and it prevented oxidative damage to DNA associated with colon cancer.[20]

  • Showed potential as a neuroprotective. CBD decreased brain damage after stroke in rats.[21]

There’s more — anxiety, neurodegenerative diseases, autoimmune conditions — CBD is worth a look in any disease process that’s rooted in inflammation (which is most of them).
