8 Potential Health Benefits of CBD Oil

Advocates claim CBD oil can help with a variety of conditions, including chronic pain, anxiety, depression, acne and even cancer.

Because of cannabis long-time status as an illegal Schedule 1 drug, research on CBD oil is still in its infancy. Here's what we know now.

1. CBD Oil May Relieve Chronic Pain
Early research has shown promising results for the use of CBD oil in relieving chronic pain.
Many studies have found that CBD can reduce joint inflammation and other inflammatory pain in rats, without side effects. This may point to potential relief from arthritis in humans.

In fact, one of the first trials of Sativex, a medicine that contains both CBD and THC, reported significant improvement in pain and sleep quality in 58 rheumatoid arthritis patients.

The same medicine showed a notable reduction in pain and muscle spasms in a small group of people with Multiple Sclerosis.

Analyzing several trials and studies, a 2017 report concluded that adults treated with cannabis or cannabinoids, like CBD, are likely to experience a significant reduction in chronic pain symptoms.
The same report found a notable decrease in opioid use in pain patients taking medical cannabis.

2. CBD Oil Reduces Anxiety and Depression
There is some indication that CBD oil could help treat anxiety and depression.
This is thought to be caused by CBD’s ability to activate the brain receptors for serotonin, the neurotransmitter that regulates mood, as well as appetite and sleep.

In various animal studies, CBD has shown notable anti-anxiety and antidepressant-like effects.
Unfortunately, the limited research done on humans has only looked at very small populations.
One study examined CBD’s effect on anxiety brought on by public

speaking. With a group of 60 people, they found that CBD showed anti-anxiety effects, but only in specific doses. Too much or too little didn’t seem to work.
A case study on a child with post-traumatic stress disorder found that CBD oil helped safely reduce her anxiety and improve her sleep.
On the other hand, a 2017 analysis of six case reports and seven trials, covering 201 subjects, found no evidence of CBD’s effect on major depressive and bipolar disorders. However, they did see
some positive effects for those with social anxiety disorder.
There are some other dietary components thought to influence depression here.

3. CBD Oil Alleviates Cancer Symptoms and May Have Anti- Tumor Effects
Both the American Cancer Society and the National Cancer Institute recognize CBD oil’s potential in slowing and reducing the spread of cancer cells.
While they emphasize that CBD is not a cure, plenty of research shows it can be highly beneficial in inhibiting the progression of many types of cancer, including breast, lung, prostate and colon
cancer.
CBD is also effective in lowering cancer-related pain, as well as nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy.
4. Reduces Seizures in Epilepsy
Much of the research on CBD has looked at its seizure-reducing effects on two rare forms of childhood-onset epilepsy, Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome.
In fact, the FDA just approved the first prescription cannabis drug, called Epidiolex, for these two forms of epilepsy.
5. Displays Antipsychotic Properties
Much of the research on CBD has looked at its seizure-reducing effects on two rare forms of childhood-onset epilepsy, Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome.
