CBD oil can be used to help with many different medical complaints, without the user experiencing the intoxicating effects usually associated with cannabis. This is because it does not contain THC, the part of cannabis responsible for producing a ‘high’. CBD oil can be purchased from your local pharmacy to help with a variety of issues.
1 – Relieve Pain & Inflammation
If you are someone who suffers from chronic pain or inflammation because of inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, or fibromyalgia then you may struggle to find the right balance of pain relief to manage your condition. CBD oil could be the answer to help reduce the number of opioids you are taking. Studies show that regular use can reduce chronic inflammation and alleviate pain. If you have chronic pain it is worth talking to your local pharmacy to see if CBD oil could be an option for you.
2 – Treating Anxiety & Depression
Research shows that 6% of adults in the United States suffer from depression every year and a further 18% are diagnosed with anxiety. Research carried out by the Anxiety & Depression Association of America, CBD oil can help to alleviate both of these conditions. This is an attractive alternative to many as CBD oil does not have the adverse side effects that are associated with pharmaceutical drugs. Speak to your local pharmacy about the options that are available to you.
3 – Improve Skin Health
CBD Oil isn’t only useful for medical conditions, it can also be used for skin care purposes. Many skin complaints are caused by inflammation, so it makes sense for CBD oil to help calm redness. Studies also show that it can provide antioxidants and improve the production of collagen. Ask your local pharmacy about CBD skincare products that they stock.
4 – Alleviate Cancer Side Effects
It has long been known that cancer patients use marijuana to relieve their symptoms and the side effects of various cancer treatments. There is some research to suggest that pharmaceutical-grade CBD oil could have similar effects and reduce nausea and vomiting for those going through chemotherapy treatment.
