CBD concentrate: Effects, benefits, and what to know

CBD concentrate: Effects, benefits, and what to know

Anxiety

There are many different types of anxieties:

  • Agoraphobia
  • Generalized anxiety disorder
  • PTSD
  • Social anxiety disorder
  • Phobias

Sudden spikes in the level of anxiety can disrupt our day-to-day activities that cause cognitive dissonance. General anxiety treatment is a combination of finding any relaxed environment, medicine or therapy.

All these are a little effective, but will not completely cure the underlying problems that cause anxiety. Even medical professionals are also unsure what really causes anxiety. Many however believe that it is due to chemical imbalance with our serotonin receptors.

Like CBD Tincture for depression, our anxiety disorders can also be managed by using cannabinoids. CBD can provide calming effect and targets serotonin receptor.

Epilepsy and seizures

Thousands of people are affected due to epilepsy with no clear reason. It is totally indiscriminate of our age and genetics. Epilepsy can occur when an individual will experience multiple seizures all throughout their lifetime.

Although the exact reasons of epilepsy is not yet discovered, but doctors have found few links for this disorder due to:

  • Heavy alcohol use
  • Head trauma
  • Infections
  • Lack of oxygen while child birth
  • Lack of sleep
  • Maternal drug use
  • Low blood sugar
  • Stroke

However, still nearly 70% causes for seizures have no common reason and thus it makes almost impossible to treat. CBD has given a new hope.

After conducting a study with group of children and adults diagnosed with epilepsy, it was reported overall reduction in the frequency of seizure.

Nausea

One study conducted in 2012 by British Journal of Pharmacology, who found CBD to be effective for reducing nausea in rats at low-dosage. Many CBD users have also confirmed this conclusion.

PTSD

CBD can also provide calming and effective medicinal benefits for those people who are experiencing PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder).

Tremors

Doctors usually treat tremors caused by Parkinson’s with certain medication which has got plenty of cognitive side effects. All these treatments are meant for managing the damaged receptors that cause tremors.

Usually, CBD targets our receptors C1 and C2 that allow our brain to send helpful cannabinoids to effective areas. CBD can also provide anti-inflammatory properties that can relieve the stressed and tensed muscles/tissues of affected areas.

The medicinal benefit further extends to those who are experiencing tremors and shakes caused by alcoholism, traumatic brain injuries and drug addiction.

Diabetes

CBD can reduce our plasma levels that can help lower occurrence of diabetes among the lab mice almost by 30 percent. Studies found that CBD is effective in reducing insulitis.

In another study, conducted by Health and Nutritional Survey, saw 16 percent insulin reduction with those participants who reported marijuana usage.

As CBD contains all these cannabinoids, hence one can conclude that it will provide similar effects on humans too for management of diabetes.

Brain trauma

CBD are also “neuroprotective” and helps preventing further brain damage because of lower oxygen. It can work by protecting our excitatory transmitter and by blocking oxidants that caused toxicity of our brain.

Arthritis

It is believed that arthritis symptoms affect almost 50 million Americans. The symptom for arthritis includes:

  • Limited motion
  • Pain
  • Stiffness
  • Swelling

Although arthritis is not a life changing affliction for most of the people, but when it is in advanced stages of arthritis people experience greater amount of pain and also mobility trouble.

By using CBD concentrate one can reduce inflammation of muscles, joints and tendons. The cannabinoids will target CB2 receptors.

The anxiety reduction also plays certain factor and with reduced anxiety can encourage activity and also better sleep. All these have a positive effect on the arthritis symptoms.
