The CBD has many therapeutic uses and benefits to improve the mental and physical state of the body. From a medical perspective, it can be used for therapeutic purposes to assist in the recovery of certain diseases.
1. Relieves pain
Its therapeutic properties reduce the sensation of pain and can then relieve inflammations due to certain diseases such as diabetes, multiple sclerosis, cancer, AIDS, chronic neurogenic pain, patients with rheumatism such as osteoarthritis and arthritis. CBD acts as an analgesic, greatly improving the well-being of people suffering from these diseases.
2. Anti-inflammatory properties:
One of the essential benefits of CBD is its anti-inflammatory properties, which are very effective in treating diseases where inflammation takes precedence, such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, fibromyalgia and stroke.
3. Reduces sleep disorders and insomnia
Thanks to its relaxing and relaxing muscles, CBD reduces stress and chronic pain. This results in a considerable improvement in the sleep phase and offers a deeper and more relaxing sleep.
4. Improves mood and reduces symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression
CBD improves anxiety disorders of all kinds. By reducing the intensity of neuronal activity, it can act on mild to moderate depressive states (stress, anxiety, depression, paranoia, anxiety attacks, etc.).
5. Help with withdrawal from addictions (nicotine, alcohol, or other drugs)
By reducing the feeling of anxiety, CBD helps to partially or completely calm the feeling of lack of a dependent person (cigarettes, alcohol, morphine, cocaine). It makes it possible to regain a calmer mind and to improve the capacity of concentration. More is explained in the article “CBD a cure for addictions and an aid to withdrawal?”.
6. Regulates appetite and reduces nausea
CBD can play a role in controlling appetite and digestion and thus help people with eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia. In addition to its power over appetite, CBD relieves the symptoms generated by cancer treatments. It reduces nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy and greatly improves the well-being of people following this treatment which causes many adverse side effects (diarrhea or constipation, loss of appetite, inflammation of the mucous membranes and other various pains.)
7. Improves concentration and memory
By interacting with the endocannabinoid system, CBD can associate with dopamine produced by the brain. Dopamine is in charge of memory, concentration and mental consciousness. By binding CBD to it increases the levels of dopamines in the brain which improves concentration and makes you feel more stimulated.
8. Helps prevent the growth of harmful microorganisms and combat existing ones:
Some studies have demonstrated the action of CBD as an active substance on cancer. Cannabinoids, CBD and THC, have the potential to reduce the size of tumours and cancer cells. They would prevent the proliferation of cancer cells and disrupt the process of tumor neovascularization. CBD does not “cure” cancer despite its positive effects on metastatic cells. Many clinical studies still need to be conducted to learn more about its effectiveness.
9. Assistance in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases:
CBD has proven to be extremely effective against certain neurodegenerative diseases including multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s and stroke. It acts on the brain receptors responsible for pain, anxiety and stress, greatly improving the well-being and quality of life of patients with these neurodegenerative diseases. CBD contributes to the recovery of patients by repairing, protecting nerve cells from the appearance of senile plaques and promoting the renewal of neurons.
10. Medical Use of CBD to Treat Epilepsy
Some studies have shown the efficacy of CBD in patients with syndromes of childhood epilepsy such as Dravet Syndrome and Lennox-Gassaut. Cannabidiol will attach itself to receptors linked to the nervous system and modify the message sent to the brain in order to reduce the chemical activity that causes the seizures. This would halve the frequency of seizures. This ability of CBD explains its effectiveness against other chronic nervous diseases such as fibromyalgia.
