Anxiety & Depression
With anxiety and depression at an all time high and becoming a more commonly diagnosed mental health disorder than ever it is proving to have devastating effects on people’s mental health as well as general overall mental wellness.
According to WHO (World Health Organisation), depression is now the number one contributor to disability across the globe. Anxiety is currently ranked number sixth within this same category. Both of these conditions are usually treated with manmade pharmaceuticals that have been proven to cause a multitude of negative side effects such as drowsiness, irritation, insomnia, and headaches.
What makes these manmade drugs even worse is the fact that a lot of these medications such as opioids can be extremely addictive and can even lead to substance abuse and result in fatalities.
CBD products, mainly oils have been showing very promising signs as a treatment for both depression and anxiety, meaning that people who now live with these horrendous disorders are becoming a lot more interested in this naturally beneficial method.
All of these positive qualities have been linked to CBD hemp extract’s effects on the brain’s receptors in regards to the natural neurotransmitter serotonin, which helps when looking to regulate things such as digestion, memory and even sleep.
Acne & Skincare
Bad skin and acne is very a common skin condition that currently effects more than 9% of the world’s population.
Acne and bad skin is thought to be caused by various factors, genetics, bacteria, inflammation and overproduction of sebum, an oily substance made by sebaceous glands under the skin included.
Certain CBD products may also be able to help treat acne due to anti-inflammatory properties from the hemp extract with the additional ability to reduce natural sebum production.
Research into the natural anti-inflammatory effects of cannabinoids are increasing at the moment for skin conditions, such as acne, eczema, irritation, itching, rashes and even psoriasis due to popular demand from the ever growing CBD market and it’s customers.
All the way back, around 3000B.C. people were already using Cannabis to treat pain.
In more recent times however, scientists have found that specific components within the cannabis plant, including CBD amongst many other compounds, are responsible for pain-relieving effects.
Our human bodies contain a biological system called the endocannabinoid system or ECS. This system is responsible for regulating a multitude of bodily functions such as pain, sleep, appetite and our immune system so is a major key to our general health and wellbeing.
Your body naturally produces small amounts of endogenous cannabinoids or
endocannabinoids, that act as neurotransmitters that bond together with cannabinoid receptors within your nervous system.
It has been said that CBD hemp extract may help decrease chronic pain by impacting endocannabinoid receptors, reducing inflammation.
