CBD Benefits - What do the Studies Show?

Why are so many individuals turning to natural, hemp based CBD supplements for treatment of the nervous system, inflammatory conditions and skincare - not only for themselves, but for their pets?

Until recently, the benefits of cannabis and hemp were only reported anecdotally by the people who chose to partake. Recently, the scientific community has also gathered increasing amounts of evidence proving that the cannabis sativa plant (also known as marijuana or hemp) has incredible healing properties. The public is only now beginning to understand this complicated plant that interacts with human and animal endocannabinoid systems in beneficial ways.

Although the FDA recognizes the many benefits of cannabis extracts, it has not approved the majority of CBD products and companies can not claim to treat any illnesses.

However, here‘s what studies are showing (gathered from this Northwestern Medicine article): 

  • To date, the most significant research supports the use of CBD oil for those who experience seizures. Epidiolex, a CBD oral solution, was approved by the FDA in 2018 to treat people with two rare forms of epilepsy.
  • Research shows that dogs using CBD oil for osteoarthritis were more active and had less pain. This suggests there could be a human application for pain and inflammation treatment.
  • Other applications include managing anxiety, PTSD and cancer side effects.
  • In a short-term study, 42 patients taking CBD oil reported reduced cravings for up to one week after their dose of CBD, suggesting that CBD oil could be a powerful tool in helping individuals seeking help for addiction.

 Although the evidence for CBD as a powerful health treatment is mounting, the supplement is also being promoted for all kinds of purposes that have not been verified by the scientific community yet. We suggest caution when starting any new supplement.
