How CBD Can Help You Overcome Health Issues!
CBD is a natural way to treat a range of health issues and can have a positive impact on our overall health and wellbeing. It can help with illness and injuries that cause pain and discomfort. It can also help with skin conditions like acne and eczema and can alleviate symptoms we may suffer caused by low mood and bad mental health. There is a product to suit everyone, from CBD softgels to oils, capsules, and gummies. Below, we’ll look at how adding CBD to your daily routine can help you overcome common health issues.
What is CBD?
CBD is extracted from the cannabis plant to make an all-natural substance, that is often used to boost health and well-being. Although it is produced within the cannabis plant, you won’t experience the common ‘high’ feeling associated with the drug, as this is produced by a separate chemical called THC – there should be no THC present in your CBD products. CBD can be mixed with other natural substances to make an oil to be taken orally, or you may also find it in the form of infused creams and lotions, capsules, gummies and even bath bombs – there is something to suit everyone!
How does it work?
CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid systems within our body. These symptoms are made up of receptors – CBD works with them and changes the way that they react to pain, and in turn, creates an anti-inflammatory effect, which is why CBD is commonly used to treat pain caused by chronic illness and injuries. It can also interact with the production of serotonin in our brain, which is the chemical that causes us to feel happy and can balance production to reduce feelings of stress, anxiety, and low mood.
Generally, CBD is used to balance various systems in the body, whether you’re experiencing pain, feeling down, or stressed, or something within your body is causing you to feel unlike yourself – taking CBD in one of its many forms can help.
What are the health benefits?
As previously mentioned, CBD products come with a variety of benefits, from relieving pain and discomfort to alleviating physical and mental symptoms of stress and anxiety. Below, we’ll look at these benefits in more detail and how CBD can promote good health.
Pain relief & injuries
CBD is most known for its ability to relieve pain. It can be used if you’re suffering from pain caused by a sporting injury, or it can be used to help reduce the impact of chronic pain caused by conditions like arthritis. It can be used as a natural alternative to over-the-counter medicines and can be great for those of us that react badly to the chemicals used in traditional pain relief. You can adapt your CBD dose to suit your level of pain, you could also use creams and lotions as a topical solution to apply directly to the point of pain.
CBD is an anti-inflammatory. It can reduce swelling that comes along with pain with external injuries, as well as internally. If you suffer from conditions such as IBS, taking CBD can help to reduce the inflammation in your body, to reduce pain and cramping, and alleviate those nasty symptoms. It can also manage swelling outside of the body around joints, so you can get back on your feet in no time.
Did you know CBD can also help with skin conditions? It can be difficult to cope with the symptoms that come along with acne and psoriasis but using CBD can be beneficial. Using CBD cream on the problem areas can bring down the swelling, soothe sore spots and reduce redness. Not only this, but CBD-infused cream can leave your skin feeling smooth and rejuvenated, and can result in a youthful, healthy glow.
Anxiety and stress
Most of us will suffer from symptoms of anxiety and stress throughout our lifetime for various reasons. CBD can help with these common mental health issues. CBD can balance the levels of serotonin in your brain – low levels can contribute to depression and sadness – so that you can feel more like yourself. It can also relax your mind and body, so you can focus clearly and feel a sense of calm when you need it most. You can slow your racing thoughts, as well as reduce physical symptoms like shaking, headaches and sweating by adding CBD to your routine.
