Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is a great helping hand for a variety of ailments. People have used CBD oil to help with so many ailments. In fact, some people say it is a miracle, reversing problems they have had for years. They report that CBD oil:
1. Relieves Chronic Pain
People suffering from chronic pain from diseases like fibromyalgia are finding relief with CBD. Taking CBD can offer relieve pain and can even slow nervous system degeneration. In fact, CBD oil has been approved in Canada for multiple sclerosis and cancer pain.

It has been proven that CBD reduces stress and anxiety levels in people suffering from conditions such as PTSD, social anxiety disorder, and obsessive compulsive disorder. CBD has even reduced the stress and discomfort associated public speaking.
3. Fights against Multi-Drug Resistant Bacteria
Whatever the mechanism is for destroying bacteria, CBD seems to be a potent weapon in fighting the antibiotic resistant “superbugs” that are becoming more and more of a problem every day.
4. Reduces Inflammation
Chronic inflammation is a prevalent problem in our society that contributes to many non-infectious diseases including heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s, autoimmune disease, and more, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information.
Diet and lifestyle play a huge part in chronic inflammation, but when people are already eating a healthy, nutrient-dense diet and optimizing their lifestyle (getting sufficient sleep and exercise, for example), CBD oil can help. Research also shows that CBD oil can reduce chronic inflammation that leads to disease.
5. Reduces Oxidative Stress
Oxidative stress is when the body has too many free radicals and can’t keep up with neutralizing them (with antioxidants). In fact, oxidative stress is responsible for many ailments today. Oxidative stress is more of a problem now than in the past because our environment is so much more toxic than it once was.
6. Promotes Healthy Weight
CBD oil helps maintain healthy blood sugar, stimulates genes and proteins that helps break down fat, and increases mitochondria that helps burn calories.
CBD oil also encourages the body to convert white fat to brown fat. White fat is the kind of fat we typically think of when we think about body fat. Brown fat is fat that is in small deposits that behaves differently than white fat. Brown fat is said to improve health by enhancing the body’s ability to burn white fat, create heat, and even regulate blood sugar.
7. Improves Heart Health
Heart disease is a growing problem today. In fact, it is the leading cause of death in the United States. A healthy diet and lifestyle are top priorities for heart health, but CBD oil can also help. According to numerous studies, CBD oil reduces artery blockage andstress-induced cardiovascular response. It may also lower cholesterol and blood pressure.
As mentioned earlier, CBD oil is helpful in preventing oxidative stress and inflammation. Both of these are often precursors to heart disease.
8. Minimizes Skin Conditions
CBD oil can be used topically to treat skin conditions. Studies show CBD oil has a high potential for treating skin conditions like eczema by encouraging abnormal cell death. It can also help regulate the skin’s oil production, reducing acne. CBD also contains many nutrients, like vitamin E, that help improve and protect the skin.
