Seizures — violent shaking and loss of control — originate in the brain as interruptions in electrical activity. That makes them difficult to treat with conventional methods.
Let’s make it clear that absolutely no studies show that CBD prevents cancer in humans. But a major reason for that lack of data is that few to no tests have been performed on humans (yet).
That’s because CBD gummies are super easy to take. All you have to do is chew and swallow. There’s no long and involved prep work required, no waiting a half-hour before swimming. Just chew and go.
16) Relieve Pain And Swelling
That may not seem like a benefit for you hard-core, give-me-a-joint-or-give-me-death cannabis purists. But for those who just need CBD for medicinal purposes, it’s one of the biggest benefits of all.
If you suffer from seizures, talk to your doctor about taking CBD gummies throughout the day as a supplement for your regular treatment.
Antioxidants help remove plaque and other substances that can group together, form a clog, and cut off blood flow to your brain or other parts of your body. Without those obstructions, your blood flows smoother and your blood pressure goes down.
But did you know that CBD counteracts all these negative effects? It’s true. CBD is like a chaperone at the high school dance — it keeps THC from running amok and causing all sorts of debauchery.
In an analysis of 14 published studies (nine involving animals and five involving humans), scientists with the University of Montreal concluded that CBD showed promise in treating people with opioid, cocaine, or psychostimulant addiction.
Remember, because CBD oils are largely unregulated, there is no guarantee that a product is either safe or effective.
CBD oil may reduce the risk of heart disease by alleviating hypertension (high blood pressure) in certain people, suggests a 2017 study in JCI Insight.
CBD oil is an extract of Cannabis indica or Cannabis sativa—the same plants that, when dried, make marijuana. CBD oil is believed by some to treat pain, reduce anxiety, and stimulate appetite in the same way that marijuana does, but without its psychoactive effects. CBD has also shown promise in treating certain types of seizures.
CBD oil contains CBD mixed with an inert carrier oil, such as coconut oil or hemp seed oil. The bottled oil, called a tincture, is sold in various concentrations. There are also CBD capsules, CBD gummies, and under-the-tongue CBD sprays.
