Benefits of CBD No One Tells You About

Updated on November 16, 2019

Lately, cannabis-derived products are growing in demand. Mostly because of the growing awareness about its medical benefits in some of the most malignant diseases. And it is the CBD present in cannabis that is being explored more often than other cannabinoids.

Different strains contain different traces of CBD and other cannabinoids. Experts from suggest that strains with higher CBD content do not make you feel high. Having said that, cannabis strains are primarily categorized into two strains depending upon the CBD content and end-use- Marijuana and Hemp.

Marijuana contains a high amount of THC, which is mostly used for recreational purpose. Whereas, hemp is the industrial version of the same plant, which contains high concentrations of CBD as compared to THC. Thus, eliminating the psychoactive effects of consuming it.

Let us study some of the lesser-known benefits of CBD:

1. Helpful In Acne Reduction

Acne is one of the most common skin disease caused due to infections in sebaceous glands. Recent studies prove that CBD, due to its anti-inflammatory properties, can help reduce acne. Moreover, it works in sync with the endocannabinoid system and reduces the production of sebum, which is the primary cause of acne and pimples.

2. Might Help Protect Neurological System

CBD is similar to endocannabinoids responsible for controlling various organ systems in the body. Various studies suggest that CBD is helpful in activating the CB1 and CB2 receptors which are constituents of the endocannabinoid system. These receptors control the secretion of various hormones and enzymes in the body, thus control the nervous system as well. Neurology experts support the notion that CBD might help protect your neurological system by regulating the receptors and improving the immune system’s performance.

3. Can Help Regulate Blood Pressure

Marijuana has long been used for recreational purpose, due to its psychotic effects. But, CBD present in the herb is responsible for relaxing the muscles and relieving stress. Moreover, CBD is also responsible for the breakdown of fatty acids and large globules of fat and cholesterol. This combined effect that CBD has on the cardiovascular system may prove to be helpful in treating irregular blood pressure.

4. Stops Cancer Cells From Regeneration

One of the most argued topics around the consumption of marijuana is its efficacy in treating cancer. To be honest, it is not all of the marijuana, but precisely the cannabidiol that has been proven helpful in treating cancer. CBD inhibits the cancer-stricken cells from multiplying. This means the cancer cells would die on a natural course, without spreading to other parts. Though the study is still limited to laboratory, the results have surprising results and therefore, can be studied for its actual efficacy in the treatment process.

Apart from all these, cannabidiol is currently being used to cure depression and anxiety symptoms. In addition to psychiatric treatments, CBD has proven its efficacy in improving metabolism rate and also curing some of the chronic pains.

With so many elaborative benefits, CBD is surely the next level of disease treatment. And since the endocannabinoid system has been discovered, the product has found its rightful place in the medicine universe.
