CBD Oil Benefits

Also known as cannabidiol, CBD works by interacting with our endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is a biological system in the human body that regulates specific functions including sleep, mood, appetite, and memory.

CBD oil may help relieve pain

Chronic pain affects millions of Australians every day, with GPs reporting a 67% increase in chronic pain patients in the last decade. With more and more people living with chronic pain and its debilitating effects on their day to day life, researchers have been exploring different approaches to managing this condition and began considering CBD Oil for Pain.

While traditional medications and analgesics for pain relief have been around for a long time, unfortunately, it’s become increasingly clear that their effectiveness is limited. Many struggle to tolerate these drugs and experience ongoing side effects, while for other people, their pain simply becomes unresponsive to these conventional treatments.  

The good news is that CBD oil can be an effective, alternative treatment for chronic pain in some people. CBD can help relieve the feeling of pain by acting on the body’s endocannabinoid system. CBD can also assist in reducing the inflammatory processes that can cause chronic pain in the first place.

CBD oil may reduce anxiety

Do you experience anxiety or worrying thoughts? And are you finding that these feelings are persistent and are having a negative impact on your daily life?

You are not alone. According to Beyond Blue, 1 in 7 Australians are currently living with anxiety, and more than a quarter of Australians will experience an anxiety disorder in their lifetime.

With so many Australians feeling prolonged anxiety, worry and stress, low-dose CBD oil is gaining attention as an option to help people manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life. 

CBD oil may help treat sleep disorders

The Australian Sleep Foundations 2019 report reveals that nearly 15% of Aussies suffer chronic insomnia. And as it stands, close to 60% of our population experience at least one symptom of sleep disturbance with a high frequency (more than three times per week).

This statistic is alarming, because research has long shown a strong link between sleep and our overall health. We know that when we consistently don’t get enough sleep, or have poor quality sleep, both our physical and mental health can suffer. Given the importance of sleep for our overall wellbeing, the emergence of CBD as an alternative, natural treatment option has been significant. 

Other Conditions:

Research into CBD oil is rapidly expanding. Currently, there are studies underway to explore its ability to treat a range of other issues, including: epilepsy, multiple Sclerosis, nausea, vomiting, PSTD, appetite disorders, endometriosis, and a range of other inflammatory conditions. There’s also been discussion about whether CBD can help treat or prevent coronavirus, which you can read more about here: CBD Oil for Covid Recovery?
