What Are The Potential Benefits of CBD?

CBD - a word you will have heard a lot of in the last few years. Once shrouded in fear and obscurity, CBD is now as mainstream as most other health and wellness products. And its explosion into Western culture has been far from subtle. In 2020, the global CBD market was said to be worth 1.82 billion dollars, and it is expected that this market will grow by 21.2% before 2028.

Yes, CBD is now finally being recognised for its enormous benefits to our health and wellbeing. But what is it and why is everyone hopping on the CBD bandwagon?

What is CBD?

CBD is one of the two main ingredients found in cannabis. The other ingredient is THC. CBD is considered to be the medicinal, healing part of the plant. THC is the psychoactive part. So, when you separate CBD from THC, you can ingest it without getting high or ‘stoned’.

CBD can be used as a lotion or cream, as a tincture, an oil, a vapour liquid or in pill and edible forms. The transportation method you use depends largely on why you are using CBD. For example, if you want to use CBD to clear up bad skin, you might opt for a lotion. If you want to use CBD to calm anxiety, you might use an e-liquid to vape with or a pill. If you want to use CBD to help with chronic pain, you might use a tincture every morning. It’s totally up to you!

Why does CBD work for so many things?

CBD is known as a bit of a ‘cure all’, in that it can be administered for all sorts of physical and mental health problems. Why? The human body has CBD receptors known as CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are in the brain and when they interact with CBD they can help with reducing pain, anxiety, depression and other neuro functions. CB2 is found in the immune system so will help with disease prevention and healing more quickly after an illness.

What are the benefits of CBD?

We will start by talking about some of the physical benefits of using CBD.

Harvard Health and The Depression Alliance has helped to outline some of the key physical benefits of CBD, the full report can be found here and here.

  • Chronic pain. One animal study from the European Journal of Pain suggests CBD could help reduce arthritis pain and inflammation. Other research demonstrates how CBD might reduce inflammatory and neuropathic pain, which are difficult to treat.
  • It is said that CBD can help reduce the physical cravings associated with certain addictions, which is especially useful if you are looking to use CBD to move away from an addiction to nicotine (Check out our CBD range here)
  • Epilepsy. CBD took centre stage in 2015 after epilepsy campaigners sought to make CBD more accessible to those with epilepsy. Many studies have since shown that CBD can help to reduce seizures (sometimes by up to 50%), which is potentially a lifesaving treatment.
  • Parkinson's Disease: Similar to epilepsy, CBD can work on neuro pathways to help prevent the physical symptoms of Parkinson's disease.
  • Skin conditions: CBD inhibits the lipid production in skin cells, making it a promising treatment for people who suffer from acne.

Mental health benefits are also widely reported. Research is ongoing but promising in the following areas:

  • Anxiety: CBD can help reduce episodes of anxiety and induce a sense of calm and clearer thinking. Some research has also shown that CBD can interrupt ‘fear memories’ making it easier to move on from trauma.
  • Depression: CBD can help to alleviate severe depression episodes. More research is needed.
  • Panic Attacks: In the same way that CBD can help reduce the physical symptoms of epilepsy and Parkinson’s disease, it can calm the nervous system to reduce the frequency of panic attacks too.
