How CBD Oil is Helping Millions of Americans Suffering From Chronic Pain and Other Ailments

It seems like everyone is raving about the benefits of CBD, but what exactly does it do for you? I did some research, and have broken down of all the numerous benefits of CBD products.

How CBD Oil is Helping Millions of Americans Suffering From Chronic Pain and Other Ailments

Before we begin, you may be asking, what exactly is CBD? Cannabidiol, otherwise known as CBD, is a naturally occurring compound found in the resinous flower of the cannabis plant. Though closely related to TCH, CBD does not produce a high when used and is similarly non-addictive.

So, what are the benefits?

Chronic Pain Solutions

CBD oil has been shown to reduce pain for those suffering from arthritis, back issues, and even the pain of many suffering from chronic migraines. As a result of these discoveries, CBD has become a safer alternative to Opiates for people with extreme chronic pain. For decades, Opiates have been the top prescribed medication for patients suffering intense chronic pain, but Opiates are highly addictive and have caused the deaths of many who’ve abused it. However, CBD has proven to be a safer and non-addictive pain relief alternative.

Treating Epilepsy 

In April of 2018, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration advisory panel unanimously approved CBD medication to treat two rare forms of childhood epilepsy. The drug, Epidiolex, has become the first FDA-approved drug containing substances substance derived from marijuana and it is also the first FDA approved drug for the treatment of patients with Dravet syndrome.

Calming Anxiety Disorders

Anxiety disorders including OCD, Depression, and PTSD are suffered by about one in three Americans at some point in their lives. CBD oils act as solutions for many of the symptoms associated with anxiety-related disorders because CBD allows its user to destress enough that they find relief from the worry-filled thoughts which are associated with their disorder. Since many anxiety disorders are also characterized by an inability to fall asleep or get good sleep, CBD oil is recommended because it also aids in getting people a good night’s sleep.

Clearing Up Acne 

Some studies suggest that CBD oil can even help clear acne. The results do vary from person to person however, based on the type of acne they're suffering from. CBD oil helps reduce various types of acne thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties and its ability to adjust how the body creates sebum. Sebum is created by our body to protect our skin, but when it mixes with dead skin cells, dirt, or other pollutants and become trapped inside our pores. This clogged pore then becomes acne. So for acne which is caused by the over-production of sebum, CBD oil provides a very effective skincare solution.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much.

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
