January is National CBD Month

Happy National CBD Month!  CBD is a powerful tool that can help you find wellness and improve your day to day life.  As research continues on this potent cannabinoid, we are seeing so many positives that can come from incorporating CBD each day.  Here are just a few of the ways that CBD can improve your life:  

CBD may provide help for people diagnosed with Lupus, an autoimmune disorder that occurs when the immune system attacks its own tissues and internal organs.  Due to the chronic inflammation and tissue issues associated with Lupus, sufferers deal with pain and inflammation.  CBD has been credited with alleviating both symptoms. 

People suffering from anxiety and depression have found relief from symptoms using CBD.  Anxiety disorders can disrupt your day to day life, including social anxiety, generalized anxiety and anxiety associated with post traumatic disorder.  Studies have shown CBD as a potent method of fear reduction.  Learned fear is lessened since CBD disrupts fear reconsolidation as well as improving fear reduction.  In a study, adults with sleep disorders and anxiety were given CBD.  Sleep scores showed an improvement in nearly 75% of the participants. 

CBD may even help improve blood pressure.  Hypertension or high blood pressure, if left untreated, could result in a stroke or heart attack.  In a small study, volunteers were given CBD and the promising findings showed a reduction in resting blood pressure as well as the blood pressure of participants who were under stress.  Another study that involved animals and humans found CBD acted like a vasodilator agent, improving blood flow and lowering blood pressure.

CBD could be an effective tool for weight loss and keep down the risks of obesity.  CBD may activate serotonin and additional endocannabinoids which are linked to a reduction in obesity.  More studies are needed but an early study with animals showed that CBD caused an overall decrease in food intake, which may mean that CBD can suppress appetite.  A test-tube study indicated that CBD may be responsible for turning white fat into brown fat.  Brown fat generates heat, which means more calories are burned.

Arthritis sufferers may find relief from CBD, especially for rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. A study with animals from 2017 found that CBD blocked pain and preventative CBD treatments were effective in reducing nerve damage as well as the development of pain in joints. More studies are needed but the early trials are positive.
