The industrial use of CBD Hemp and the influx of CBD-based products in the market are testament to its benefits. It’s being added to various everyday items, from food to cosmetics. While it’s already popular today, its usage is only expected to grow. By 2025, the CBD industry will be worth over 16 billion dollars in the US alone.
Mostly used in the form of CBD Hemp oil, the compound is considered a safe alternative to other cannabinoids as it does not induce any form of intoxication in its user. The low concentration of the psychoactive compound THC (tetra hydro cannabinol) and the high concentration of CBD (cannabidiol) in Hemp make it safe and beneficial to its user.
The following five benefits have been observed among regular users of CBD Hemp oil:
CBD Hemp oil directly affects the mood of its user by stimulating serotonin receptors in their brain. Serotonin, also known as the happiness hormone, when regulated with the help of CBD helps the user process their emotions and enhances their mood.
The rise in mental health awareness and the growing popularity of CBD are parallel and can be linked. The enhanced mood achieved through CBD may be beneficial in relieving anxiety as well as managing depression. The little side-effects of CBD Hemp oil as an alternative and non-traditional anti-anxiety and antidepressants also contribute to its popularity. In fact, in some cases, some people find it safer than traditional anti-anxiety and antidepressants as it does not trigger the production of any specific hormone.
Besides anxiety and depression, CBD Hemp oil has also been found beneficial in helping people with insomnia (sleeplessness). Most people who experience difficulty sleeping or experience poor quality of sleep often suffer from mental health issues such as PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), anxiety, or depression.
The relaxed mood achieved from the use of CBD Hemp may help its user fall asleep quickly and sleep peacefully through the night. Anecdotal evidence shows that CBD Hemp may help with sleep by regulating serotonin in the brain, which is essential in producing the sleep hormone, melatonin. Melatonin helps the body achieve a state of rest, which directly improves the quality of sleep.
CBD Hemp oil is rich in vitamins C and E. Both these vitamins are antioxidants and contain anti-inflammatory properties. When applied to the skin, they help produce new cells that improve the texture of the skin and keep it young.
The two vitamins also reverse the effects of sun damage through their anti-inflammatory properties and heal the skin from the inside. By fighting free radicals, they get rid of blemishes and uneven skin tone and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne. Both Vitamin C and E also help keep the moisture locked in the skin, making it appear fresh and hydrated.
Prevention of Cancer Symptoms
While the research is still underway, so far limited studies show that CBD Hemp may prevent cancer cell growth in some patients. The use of CBD Hemp may reduce symptoms of cancer among patients and ease the side effects of cancer treatment experienced by patients.
While a cure for cancer hasn’t been found yet, the use of CBD Hemp may make cancer treatment bearable for those suffering while also halting the spread of cancer cells in their body.
Relief from Pain
The anti-inflammatory compounds present in CBD Hemp may make it an alternative pain reliever. CBD Hemp oil can be used either in place of or in combination with pain-relieving ointment or gel. When used in combination with traditional pain-relieving ointment or gel, the ointment or gel is used as a carrier for CBD Hemp oil.
When massaged into the skin, CBD Hemp oil may reduce the pain in the affected area.
The analgesic effect is enhanced when CBD enters the bloodstream and reaches the brain. There, they trigger the receptors of serotonin and instantly improve the user’s mood.
It should be noted is that studies on the long-term effects of CBD Hemp oil for specific conditions and diseases are still being conducted. The existing benefits have only been studied on short-term general ailments only.
