Why CBD oil?
CBD (cannabidiol) is a type of plant chemical or phytocannabinoid found in the cannabis plant species. It is extracted from the plant (or made synthetically) and when ingested triggers a range of medicinal and therapeutic actions in 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 is one type of medical cannabis oil product available to suitable patients in Australia. It is generally considered non-intoxicating so is unlikely to instigate feelings of euphoria or a “high”. The medically qualified CA Connect team is here to prescribe the most appropriate CBD oil medication for you.
CA Connect provides CBD oil treatments to aid with the below health conditions
CBD oil has been prescribed as a therapeutic medication for patients suffering from mood or psychological disorders. Research suggests CBD can possibly reduce experiences of anxiety and may have mood-elevating qualities. More research is needed, but in the meantime studies, anecdotes and ongoing prescription by doctors provide a foundation for CBD oil in the alleviation of mood disorders.
CBD oil interacts with chemical messengers in the brain that control pain sensations. Medical cannabis and CBD oil are also being investigated for their opioid-sparing capacity, weaning patients off opioids for pain relief to cannabis medicines with a significantly lower risk of dependency. Medical cannabis has been approved by the TGA for access under the SAS-B scheme for chronic pain patients in Australia.
CBD oil has been used to aid in the treatment of insomnia in legal cannabis markets for many years. In the correct dose, CBD (and some other cannabinoids) have been researched for its sedating effect that does not impact next day cognition.
CBD oil is being researched for a range of other conditions including: Epilepsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Nausea/Vomiting, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, appetite disorders, endometriosis, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Autism and a range of other inflammatory conditions.
