The Many Benefits of CBD

Despite the legalization of cannabis for adult use in the majority states in the past few years and the inclusion in the 2018 Farm Bill of industrial hemp as a crop, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, up until recently, listed CBD as a Schedule I drug, the most dangerous drug category reserved for drugs like heroin and LSD. The classification made no sense because CBD is nonpsychoactive — it is not addictive, does not produce a "high" and there are few to no dangerous side effects.

In contrast, CBD offers many health benefits, which makes sense when you consider it’s part of our physiology. Cannabinoid receptors, which recognize and interact with CBD, are found in the human brain, lungs, liver, kidneys and immune system. Endocannabinoid deficiency has been identified in people who have migraines, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory and neurological conditions and a variety of treatment-resistant conditions

There are many scientifically documented benefits of CBD, and the list keeps growing. To name a few, benefits of CBD include the ability to help improve:

Allergic asthma

Anxiety and sleep

Austism spectrum disorder

Blood pressure

Cancer pain, nausea and lack of appetite

Cancer/tumors

Diabetes

Epilepsy

Inflammation

Irritable bowel disease

Multiple Sclerosis

Ovarian function/female reproductive system

PTSD and nightmares

Pain, migraine, detoxification from opioids

Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases

Pediatric seizures

The potential effects of CBD in treating other illnesses, such as lupus, are currently being studied. So with all of the scientific evidence to back up the many beneficial uses for CBD, why are so many still so hesitant? In part, it may be because the medicinal use of CBD oil, especially as a treatment for pain, represents a significant threat to the sale of opioids, which Big Pharma has been profiting greatly from for the last decade. Many other industries could also lose profits from a booming cannabis industry, including alcohol, lumber, gas, oil and clothing industries.
