CBD (cannabidiol) is one of the compounds found in the cannabis plant. CBD oil is extracted from the flowers, seeds, leaves, and stalks of the cannabis plant and contains a high level of CBD with little or no THC. As a result, they do not produce a sense of “high” or euphoria associated with marijuana smoking.
CBD oil is emerging to be a powerful supplement that claims a possible cure for every imaginable ailment. Here are 5 surprising benefits of CBD oil:
1. Relieves Chronic Pain and Inflammation
The therapeutic properties of CBD are shown to help relieve inflammatory and neuropathic pain. CBD interacts with the proteins that cause inflammation and pain and effectively works against them. When CBD is combined with THC in this instance, the effects are even more impressive. Consuming CBD in a proper dose can help to alleviate cancer-associated pain and reduce discomfort in multiple sclerosis patients with neuropathic pain.
2. Helps Counter Skin Problems
CBD oil, derived from marijuana seeds, is shown to help a number of skin issues like blemishes, pimples, and acne by banishing the overproduction of sebum in the pores of the skin. Studies show CBD oil has a high potential for treating skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema by stimulating shedding of dead skin cells. It can lead to an improved regrowth of skin by treating and healing it.
