Most diseases now cause inflammation at some stage. Diabetes, arthritis, cirrhosis of the liver, kidney failure, stomach ulcers, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), colitis, hypersensitivity allergies, skin diseases (such as psoriasis), and many autoimmune disorders arise due to inflammation. The use of CBD aka Cannabidiol in various forms is known to reduce inflammation and injury and reduce its severity in animals. Although still in the clinical trial stage, CBD oil with THC is a potential alternative to improve the quality of life in some of the autoimmune diseases.
CBD and its extract also have several effects on the cardiovascular system. CBD can reduce blood pressure, where fluctuations in blood pressure can cause anxiety and stress. It also improves your heart’s health and overcomes ischemic attacks and chest pain (angina) due to its anxiolytic and analgesic properties.
In addition, chemotherapy is one solution offered to slow the growth of cancer. However, it has several side effects such as nausea, dehydration, loss of appetite, lethargy, and weak immunity. Although CBD oil cannot cure cancer, it can prevent the effects of chemotherapy worse. Because CBD can activate specific receptors on brain cells that produce antiemetic or anti-nausea effects.
Furthermore, due to its anti-inflammatory properties, the use of CBD reduces the risk of diabetes significantly. CBD also decreases the level of pro-inflammatory cytokines (cell messengers) such as IFN-gamma and TNF-alpha in blood plasma. In an experiment conducted on mice, histological examination showed a decrease in pancreatic beta-cell inflammation. Although the data are insufficient and not conclusive, research shows that CBD can inhibit and delay the onset of diabetes and related inflammation.
Aside from its anti-inflammatory effects, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, Tourette’s syndrome, and other neurodegenerative and motor disorders can be controlled with CBD oil. With regular doses, the use of this oil can improve quality of life, bring about behavioral changes, and reduce anxiety, panic attacks, insomnia, progressive memory loss (dementia), and post-traumatic stress. In motor-impaired patients aged 1-17 years, CBD oil reduces seizure intensity, increases flexibility, and controls myalgia (muscle pain) due to its analgesic, antispasmodic, and anti-inflammatory properties.
