Medical cannabis is quickly becoming the go-to alternative to dangerous and addictive prescription painkillers, like the opioids that are causing an epidemic of overdose deaths in the United States. Cannabidiol is a potent pain reliever. 2015 saw the most important study to uncover the pain-relieving effects of CBD. In that study, researchers compared cannabidiol to morphine. To their surprise, CBD worked well in combination with morphine and counteracted the latter’s risky side effects. This means cannabidiol can help treat acute pain conditions, along with more long-term benefits.
CBD For Menopause Symptoms
Hot flashes are again the most common complaint associated with menopause but there is a lot more going on behind the scenes. A women’s hormones are decreasing, which can cause a number of side effects including bone loss. For these reasons, doctors are quick to prescribe hormone replacement therapy, (HRT). But many women are not candidates for HRT. A decrease in bone loss is one of the main reasons physicians prescribe primarily estrogen replacement therapy. But here is the good news, CBD has proven to be an alternative for stopping bone loss. It has actually also proven to help with bone regrowth. Some researchers are claiming that it might even be able to prevent osteoporosis after menopause. if you believe hormone replacement drugs are good for you then you may also want to take CBD to possibly reduce your risk of breast cancer associated with it. CBD has been shown to kill breast cancer cells while avoiding healthy cells in the body. Cannabis does boost serotonin which can lower body temperature and this may be why CBD works for hot flashes. Women who can not or choose not to take hormone replacement medication are often prescribed non-hormonal prescription drugs such as Prozac, Effexor, and Gabapentin. CBD according to at least one source can possibly be used to replace these drugs. Here’ s more good news. CBD has no side effects and has no drug interactions and you can not overdose on it.
CBD Is An Effective Anti-Inflammatory
Cannabis is widely-valued as a treatment for inflammation. Cannabidiol has some very special anti-inflammatory properties. Specifically, cannabidiol binds with the endocannabinoid system to produce a response that reduces nerve inflammation. This is another of its “neuroprotective” qualities and a major reason why CBD is such an effective treatment for neurological diseases.
CBD For Mood Disorders
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) affects nearly 8 percent of all American’s during their lifetime. Women are twice as likely as men to suffer from it. Finding an affordable, safe, and reliable treatment for PTSD would profoundly impact the lives of millions of Americans every year. To that end, a pathbreaking 2013 study found that cannabidiol improved people’s abilities to forget their traumatic memories. These findings are incredibly important and could be relevant for figuring out how cannabidiol can treat other anxiety and stress disorders.
CBD For Sleep
Research indicates that the calming effects of CBD can increase overall sleep amounts, reduce sleep difficulties (trouble falling asleep), improve sleep quality, and reduce insomnia. As of now, researchers understand that sleep is divided into multiple cycles with different phases, and it is generally regarded that CBD oil increases sleep in the third phase, which is the “deep sleep” phase. Furthermore, it has been shown that CBD decreases the duration of REM sleep, which is a phase of light sleep and is also the phase where dreams occur. By reducing REM sleep, people dream less (meaning better quality sleep), their memory may be improved, and symptoms of depression may be decreased. All of these factors can potentially lend to a natural, much-improved state of quality sleep.
CBD For Weight Loss
One reason CBD is so helpful with weight loss is it actually stimulates the release of toxins from our body. Often, these toxins are what prevents weight loss from occurring. In addition, a study published in the May 2016 issue of Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry found CBD plays a powerful role in the process, “fat browning.” Researchers studied the effects of CBD on preadipocytes, immature fat cells. The goal of the study was to explore CBD’s potential in treating and preventing obesity.
Through this study, researchers concluded CBD assists with:
-Stimulating fat genes and proteins that encourage the breakdown and oxidation of fat.
-Boosting the number and the activity level of mitochondria in the body’s cells. This, in turn, helps the body burn more calories.
-Decreasing the expression of proteins involved in lipogenesis, the generation of fat cells.
These findings are a collective result of CBD’s ability to induce fat browning, the process of converting white-colored fat tissue (WAT-white adipose tissue) into beige-colored fat tissue (BAT-brown and beige adipose tissue). While white-colored fat is known to store energy, beige-colored fat burns it.
CBD is capable of fighting back against the most serious diseases, while also gentle enough to be a part of a daily health regimen, cannabidiol is truly one of the most remarkable compounds in the natural world.
