1. Anti-Anxiety

CBD has been shown to improve or even eliminate anxiety and chronic stress levels.

Cannabidiol (CBD) interacts with the endocannabinoid system, which—among many other things—is responsible for mood and nervous system regulation. It has been shown to be effective even in serious anxiety disorders. [2]

2. Epilepsy and Seizures

Recently, the FDA has approved CBD- based drug for epilepsy in patients 2 years or older. This allows people to have hope to heal their epilepsy that was once untreatable with the standard medications.

In addition, National news has shown the number of seizures kids have experienced daily dwindle remarkably. This was due to the CBD oil they started giving their children to nourish their endocannabinoid system.

In conclusion, the breakthrough for the legal use of CBD for these conditions has given families hope to finally start living a healthy life after years of suffering. [3]

3. Anti-Inflammatory Painkiller

Chronic inflammation has been referred to as the underlying cause of many chronic diseases and medical conditions.

Once ingestion, CBD is able to inhibit neuronal communication through the pain pathways, thereby reducing the experience of pain for the user.

There has been a tremendous amount of chronic inflammation reduced once absorbed into the body. This could take a matter of seconds once a person puts the drops under their tongue or other areas of their body.

CBD, with some tetrahydrocannabinol, has shown efficacy against the chronic pain in rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and HIV as well as chronic NP pain. [1]

4. Antitumor

Cannabidiol (CBD) has been found to reduce tumor growth, both in lab studies and in mice.

In one government-funded study from 1974, scientists discovered that cannabis prevented metastasis and increased the death of abnormal cells. It has since been found to target a few cancers in particular, including prostate, breast, and leukemia.

In addition, newer research is showing the anti-cancer effects cannabis may also have on its ability to prevent the migration of cancer throughout the body. [4]

5. Antipsychotic

The calming and antipsychotic effect of CBD has now been applied to other areas of mental illness, including as a potential alternative for schizophrenic patients. It is offering hope to people who suffer from psychosis and do not like to deal with the harmful side effects of traditional antipsychotic medications. [6]
