- Relieves pain
Its therapeutic properties reduce the sensation of pain and can therefore relieve inflammation due to certain diseases such as diabetes, multiple sclerosis, cancer, AIDS, chronic neurogenic pain, muscular pain or patients suffering from rheumatism such as osteoarthritis and arthritis. CBD acts as an analgesic, greatly improving the well-being of people suffering from these conditions.
- Anti-inflammatory power
One of the key benefits of CBD is its anti-inflammatory properties, which are proving to be very effective in the treatment of diseases where inflammation is a priority, such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, fibromyalgia and stroke.
- Reduces sleep disorders and insomnia
Thanks to its relaxing and muscle-relaxing properties, CBD reduces stress and chronic pain. This results in a considerable improvement in the sleep phase and offers a deeper and more relaxing sleep.
- Improves mood and reduces symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression
CBD helps to improve all kinds of anxiety disorders. By attenuating the intensity of neuronal activity, it can act on mild to moderate depressive states (stress, anxiety, depression, paranoia, anxiety attacks, etc.).
- Addiction support (nicotine, alcohol, or other drugs)
By reducing the feeling of anxiety, CBD can partially or totally calm the feeling of withdrawal of an addict (cigarettes, alcohol, morphine, cocaine). It helps to restore a calmer mind and improve the ability to concentrate.
- Regulates appetite and reduces nausea
CBD can play a role in appetite and digestion control and thus help people with eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia. In addition to its power over appetite, CBD relieves symptoms caused by cancer treatments. It reduces nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy and considerably improves the well-being of people undergoing this treatment, which causes many undesirable side effects (diarrhoea or constipation, loss of appetite, inflammation of the mucous membranes and other various pains).
- Improves concentration and memory
By interacting with the endocannabinoid system, CBD can associate with dopamine produced by the brain. It is dopamine that is responsible for memory, concentration and mental awareness. By binding to it, CBD increases the levels of dopamine in the brain, which can improve concentration and make you feel more stimulated.
- Helps to prevent the growth of harmful micro-organisms and to combat existing ones
Some studies have demonstrated the action of CBD as an active substance on cancer. Cannabinoids, CBD and THC, are said to have the power to reduce the size of tumors and cancer cells. They prevent the proliferation of cancer cells and disrupt the process of tumor neovascularization. Beware, CBD does not “cure” cancer despite its positive effects on metastatic cells. Many clinical studies still need to be carried out to find out more about its effectiveness.
- Help in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases
CBD has been shown to be extremely effective against certain neurodegenerative diseases including multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s disease and stroke. It acts on the brain receptors responsible for pain, anxiety and stress, allowing for a significant improvement in the well-being and quality of life of patients with these neurodegenerative diseases. CBD contributes to the recovery of patients by repairing and protecting nerve cells from the appearance of senile plaques and promoting the renewal of neurons.
- The medical use of CBD to treat epilepsy
Some studies have proven the effectiveness of CBD on patients suffering from childhood epilepsy syndromes such as Dravet and Lennox-Gassaut Syndrome. Cannabidiol will bind to receptors linked to the nervous system and modify the message sent to the brain so as to reduce the chemical activity that triggers the seizures. It is believed to reduce the frequency of epileptic seizures by half. This ability of CBD explains its effectiveness against other chronic diseases of nervous origin such as fibromyalgia.
