Welcome to our Fit, Fyne & Fabulous (FFF) Education Nation series, where we educate our FFF divas on all things health and wellness!!
Did you know I use CBD Oil? (Click here) for the brand I use. I actually referred this brand to a friend who was experiencing illness on top of illness. I mean it had become overwhelming, from losing his eye sight, to edema to diabetes to glaucoma. My friend Ken Tabb had experienced a multi-year health and wellness SLUMP to put it mildly. But, I must say, I was excited when he reached back out to me to tell me that he had learned to better manage his wellness with CBD Oil! WOW!!
Ken immersed himself into all things CBD. So, I asked him to write this post for the divas of Fit, Fyne & Fabulous. So diva, this is actually a personal message from a friend I’ve known for more than a decade. It’s one that I couldn’t wait to share with you all. After all, this post maybe able to QUICKLY improve your quality of life too! So, let’s learn together shall we?
Over the last 5 years, the popularity of CBD products has skyrocketed. CBD is supposed to be a legal and safer alternative to traditional marijuana while possessing many health benefits too. You can purchase products like CBD gummies or CBD oil for anxiety, pain, and inflammation relief.
In case you didn’t know, CBD is a type of cannabinoid that is extracted from a cannabis plant. It is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid; which simply means CBD doesn’t make you high or alter your brain functionality at all. The cannabinoid that does make you high is THC, which is found in the leaves of a cannabis plant (aka Mary Jane). There is minimal to no THC in any of the CBD oil products for sale.Okay, so you’re probably thinking, “If CBD doesn’t make me high, then what is the point of taking it?” Click To Tweet
Below are 12 health benefits of consuming CBD oil products. Although gummies are good too, most people respond better to the CBD oil instead. Just a few drops of oil underneath the tongue in your mouth and you should feel the results quickly. I would say between 10 to 15 minutes.
1) Alleviates Depression and Anxiety
According to the World Health Organization, over 300 million people in the world suffer from depression. A large percentage of these people also suffer from anxiety too. These are two very serious mental disorders that can ruin the quality of someone’s life. However, several medical researchers have found that CBD can reduce the symptoms of depression and anxiety in people. It even helps fight social anxiety and public speaking anxiety as well.
2) Reduces Pain
CBD gets the most attention because of its ability to reduce pain. In fact, it can reduce everything from the physical pain caused by arthritis to the neuropathic pain caused by multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and Craniocervical Instability(CCI)
3) Viable Drug Addiction Treatment
Drug addiction affects various brain circuits that cause you to develop a dependency to drugs like heroin and morphine. CBD works to correct the brain circuits responsible for stimulating the addiction so that you don’t have a dependency on
those drugs as much anymore.
CBD is thought to influence other receptors, including opioid receptors that regulate pain and glycine receptors involved in the regulation of the “feel-good” hormone serotonin.
4) Prevent Diabetes
CBD is believed to prevent a condition called insulitis that destroys pancreatic beta cells. Since insulitis is a big cause of Type I Diabetes, preventing insulitis can help prevent diabetes too. But for people who already have diabetes, CBD can lower the
side effects of the disease like memory deficits and neuropathic inflammation.
5) Reduces Blood Pressure
High blood pressure is a big cause of cardiovascular diseases, strokes, and heart attacks. If you were to take one dose of CBD oil each day, then you’d find yourself with lower blood pressure. That means you’d have a lesser chance of getting a heart attack, stroke, or heart disease.
6) Fights Insomnia
Do you have trouble getting to sleep? If so, then CBD might be your answer to reduce insomnia or any sleeping difficulties that you may experience. This is linked to CBD’s ability to reduce anxiety and worries that cause you to stay awake.
7) Eliminates and Prevents Acne
The anti-inflammatory properties of CBD help lower the production of sebum in the skin. As you may know, sebum is natural oil produced for the skin. When excessive amounts of sebum are produced, it causes acne to form on the surface. That is why
you get those unattractive pimples and blackheads. But if you consume CBD oil and lower the production of sebum, then your visible acne will clear up fast.
8) Prevents and Reduces Alzheimer’s Disease Symptoms
Neuroinflammation is a big contributor to the development of Alzheimer’s disease. CBD can work to prevent and reduce neuroinflammation by shielding neurons from the free radicals that try to destroy them. This means you’ll have a lesser chance of dealing with Alzheimer’s disease or its symptoms.
9) Antipsychotic Effects
CBD has been found to lower psychotic symptoms in people suffering from various types of mental disorders, such as schizophrenia and psychosis. The results have not been proven for all types of mental disorders, but people with these disorders
have reportedly gotten relief from CBD oil.
10) Helps Fight Cancer
The anti-inflammatory properties of CBD help give it anti-tumor effects as well. If you’re worried about developing a cancerous tumor in your brain, lung, colon, breast, or prostate, then try CBD oil consistently. It can even prevent cancer from spreading if it already exists.
11) Epilepsy & Seizures
In June 2018, the FDA approved Epidiolex for the treatment of seizures associated with Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome in children two and under. Both are exceptionally rare genetic disorders causing lifelong catastrophic seizures that begin during the first year of life.
12) Glaucoma & Macular Edema
Eye diseases that effects the optic nerve and the retinas have seen positive results due to reduction of inflammation by CBD.
