There is always some controversy regarding Cannabis, but seldom with Hemp. Still, lately, there have been many breakthroughs about the benefits of Cannabidiol (CBD Oil) in the domain of medicine and wellness. Many scientists, doctors, specialists, and consumers have come forward, claiming the health benefits of CBD Oil in the UK and all over the world. Now that CBD Oil has been legalized for sale in the UK (3 years ago) and most US States and EU Countries as a food supplement, and from the looks of its growing popularity across the globe, proof of its authenticity and popularity is very much in the every growing consumption of it for all sorts of genuine health problems.
The past connotations with CBD Oil have been negative mostly from parties with a vested interest in negativity, – but now that virtually all CBD Oil comes from the Hemp Plant, the prior fear of being affected by the psychic effects of THC are in the past, because CBD Oil from the Hemp Plant has less than .03% THC in it which certainly will not give you a high. Although people think of the psychic high whenever they hear the word cannabis, now that is not true with nearly 100% of CBD Oil coming from the Hemp Plant, so there is much more than meets the eye, and CBD Oil now has the track record to prove it.

Continuing Anxiety can ruin a person’s life, and it could even lead to suicide. While there are many therapeutic practices that help in coping with anxiety, they only go so far, with results varying from person to person. Medical science has taken anxiety seriously, and CBD Oil is now thought of as the ideal solution to manage anxiety. According to scientists, CBD might change how the brain’s receptors respond to serotonin (a chemical compound that is usually associated with mental health.)
According to a study, a small dose of CBD (6% CBD 600mgs) helped people cope up with social anxiety, and that’s not all; it has also proven to help with insomnia, reducing stress, and other symptoms of PTSD.
Another unknown benefit of using CBD Oil is that it can help you to manage and treat inflammation and pain effectively. You might have heard about the Endocannabinoid System in the human body, which is chiefly responsible for your appetite, immune system, sleep cycles, mood and pain response. How does the system work, you ask? Well, these naturally produced Endocannabinoids act as neurotransmitters that naturally binds to cannabinoid receptors in our body’s nervous system.
This is where CBD comes in; it can help minimize severe pain by directly affecting the receptor activity – acting as a stimulus that interacts with neurotransmitters and reduces inflammation. Right now, we’ve just scratched the surface when it comes to pain management with CBD Oil, as it is believed that CBD Oil holds the potential to help patients with conditions like multiple sclerosis and arthritis.
Better Heart Health
According to a new study, a single dose of 5% CBD Oil (500mg) could help reduce high blood pressure, which has a positive effect on the heart and the overall circulatory system of your body. Continuous use CBD would be needed to continue this benefit for the long term.
Blood pressure is often taken lightly, but people who are suffering from different cardiovascular diseases don’t realise that at the root of their heart trouble, blood pressure is often the cause. According to the research, regular use of CBD could help in lowering high blood pressure.
The same study also observed that when people were given stress tests, their blood pressure elevated. Still, the subjects who have had CBD Oil experienced a significantly reduced blood pressure increase, compared to those who were not using CBD Oil. Scientists have also found out that CBD contains stress- and anxiety-reducing properties, which also helps in lowering high blood pressure.
