7 CBD facts that may surprise you

1. Soothing the pain during and after workouts

Exercise is made easier with CBD oil’s benefits.  As a result of strenuous activity, CBD oil helps reduce glutamate buildup. As CBD facilitates finding the right inner balance of your body, it allows it to better manage pain and inflammation. Its anti-inflammatory properties make CBD effective in treating short-term pain problems and long-term injuries with shooting pain.

2. Boost your mental health

Although the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) has existed for more than 500 million years, scientists only discovered its primary function a few decades ago. In 1998, Professor Di Marzo summarized the basic functions of the ECS as, “relax, eat, sleep, forget, and protect.”

Even if you don’t consume CBD products or cannabis, the ECS is vital for your body to function properly. Three critical components are needed for the endocannabinoid system to function properly: cannabinoid receptors, endocannabinoids, and metabolic enzymes.

CBD may alter the way brain receptors respond to serotonin, reducing anxiety and stress feelings. Stress and anxiety can cause the brain to issue an emergency alert. Through modulating homeostasis, the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is capable of overriding this alert and restoring balance. Moreover, a long-term study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease found that CBD may help prevent cognitive decline.

3. Promote quality sleep

People who experience difficulty sleeping due to stress, insomnia, or anxiety may benefit from CBD oil. Lack of quality sleep can lead to more serious health problems since the body repairs itself while sleeping.

Additionally, CBD can help reduce anxiety and pain, both of which can interfere with restful sleep. There is also a possibility that sleep may improve as a result of reducing certain symptoms.

4.  Skin care

Studies have shown that CBD may be useful for treating some common symptoms of skin conditions, such as dryness and itching. The anti-inflammatory properties of CBD may be particularly useful for reducing potential triggers of eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis.

CBD-rich cosmetic products are powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents. Telomeres shorten as a result of oxidative stress, and your skin’s ability to produce collagen and elastin is reduced. As a result of inflammation, skin becomes red and painful, as well as prone to acne. CBD might also be effective in fighting acne as it helps reduce the production of sebum in the skin. CBD’s skin health benefits are derived from its modulation of the endocannabinoid system (ECS).

5.  CBD oil is a natural antidepressant

Animal models have extensively demonstrated CBD’s antidepressant effects. CBD’s effect on these receptors in the brain produced both antidepressant and antianxiety effects in a 2014 animal study. According to a 2018 review of existing studies, CBD has anti-stress effects, which may reduce depression related to stress.

Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that regulates mood and social behavior, and CBD oil interacts with it. Furthermore, CBD may have fewer side effects than antidepressants. Side effects of antidepressants include insomnia, sexual dysfunction, mood swings, and agitation. As far as CBD is concerned, it has not shown similar issues. It is important to note that CBD does not replace antidepressant medications, even if it may have some benefits over them. You should never stop taking prescribed medication without consulting your healthcare provider first.

6. Anti-cancer potential

Another major reason CBD oil has been received positively in some parts of the medical community is for its apparent effect on cancer and tumor growth.

There is extensive preclinical research indicating CBD as an efficacious anti-cancer agent either alone or in conjunction with other cannabinoids, chemotherapies, and radiation therapy.

The antioxidants in CBD hemp oil also provide anti-mutagenic properties and reduce the risk of cancer for users.

7. Makes Brain Cells Grow

In addition to protecting brain cells, cannabis (CBD) stimulates neuronal growth, a process called “neurogenesis.” There are two areas of the hippocampus which are constantly producing new neurons: the subgranular zones of the dentate gyrus and the subventricular zones of the lateral ventricles. Cannabis (CB1) receptors are abundant in these brain regions. In both embryonic and adult neurogenesis, CB1 receptors stimulate the creation of new neurons, underscoring the central role of the endocannabinoid system. CBD enhances CB1 signaling through other pathways than THC, which binds directly to CB1. CBD and THC are both neurogenic, which promotes the creation of new neurons.
