CBD FOR SELF CARE

CBD FOR SELF CARE

February 06, 2020

CBD (aka cannabidiol) is one of over a hundred naturally occurring compounds called cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. Since the Farm Bill was introduced in 2018 legalizing hemp-derived CBD in the United States, there's been an influx of CBD products on the market and stories on it's benefits for self care.
CBD is thought to help people manage anxiety, inflammation and pain and to improve our sleep-wake cycle.

 

 

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

 

Plant based cannabinoids like CBD interact through receptor cells in human and animal endocannabinoid systems (ECS). The ECS is a vital system within our bodies that supports the regulation of our central nervous system, mood, memory, stress, pain, energy balance and sleep.

 

CBD, PAIN AND INFLAMMATION

 

CBD interacts with two receptors, CB1 and CB2, receptors which play a role in controlling our immune systems, our perception of pain, and in reducing inflammation. It's no wonder preliminary clinical studies on animals have shown CBD to have positive effects on inflammation, joint swelling and pain management, even when applied topically.

 

CBD AND ANXIETY

 

Numerous research studies and patient case studies, both nationally and internationally, have demonstrated that CBD has shown great promise as a treatment for anxiety.


A research study published by NCBI (National Center for Biotechnology Information), found that people who were treated with CBD before public-speaking had significantly reduced anxiety, cognitive impairment and discomfort in their speech performance. Those who did not consume CBD presented higher anxiety, cognitive impairment, discomfort, and alert levels. 

 

CBD AND SLEEP

 

CBD's ability to reduce anxiety and to calm could explain why it improves sleep. Typically it's our daily stresses or our aches and pains that keep us up at night. But research suggests CBD also affects the sleep cycle itself. A 2014 study into patients with Parkinson's disease found CBD improved symptoms of disorders associated with poor sleep and nightmares.
