CBD and Vertigo
For anyone that has suffered from Vertigo, you know better than anyone how unpleasant and hard it is to live with. Having a variety of causes, it is always best to consult a Doctor if it is a regular occurrence.
What is Vertigo?
For many sufferers, Vertigo becomes more than just feeling dizzy. You can lose your balance as it feels like everything around you is spinning uncontrollably. Vertigo is often associated with a fear of heights, but an attack can actually occur anywhere. These vertigo attacks can result in balance problems, tinnitus and in even nausea.
A vertigo attack can last anywhere from a few seconds to a couple of hours, and in the most severe cases it can last for weeks or months.
Vertigo is not a condition in itself but rather a symptom of something. Often stemming from a problem within your inner ear or central nervous system, that is responsible for the bodies balance.
How can CBD help Vertigo?
Although the main medical advice for Vertigo is limited. It is suggested that anyone suffering should lie in a dark room and wait for the vertigo spell to pass.
The unique way CBD works within the body may help alleviate the common symptoms that arise with vertigo.
Cannabidiol or ‘CBD’ is a type of cannabinoid chemical found naturally in the cannabis plant. Most UK, CBD contains very little to no ‘THC’ that cause the ‘high’ feeling associated with marijuana, so is completely safe for new users and has no side-effects. Some research has shown the core substances in CBD interact with the body’s natural Endocannabinoid system, which contains the receptors for your brain, appetite, sleep, the immune system and pain responses.
The bodies receptors are tiny proteins attached to the cells. The receptors receive chemical signals from different body stimuli, causing the cell to respond accordingly. This response can create anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects.
CBD has a calming effect on the body and promotes homeostasis too.
Homeostasis can be viewed as your bodies ‘happy medium’ or 'optimum space'. The body contains a natural endocannabinoid system contains receptors that are activated by CBD to help balance bodily functions such as appetite, mood, sleep and muscle operations.
Why people choose CBD for Vertigo?
While the research is still ongoing, recent studies concluded that CBD reduced fatigue, sleepiness and irritability and most importantly reduced the adverse effects of Vertigo, when used alongside therapy.
The British journal of Pharmacology has cited that CBD may be an effective treatment in treating nausea and vomiting; whether it is from vertigo or not.
Vertigo is often caused by inflammation in the inner ear. CBD possess anti-inflammatory properties which help reduce inflammation in affected areas, as well as relieve pain caused by this.
In another study, conducted over a long period of time, consistent and continuous doses of CBD oil helped reduce dizziness too.
