Health Life: Cannabis Oil And Its Benefits

by Duke Magazine

Cannabis oil is considered to be highly beneficial as it is described  as one of the most effective oils for the treatment of certain conditions and illnesses.

Researchers are of the keen belief that there are at least two active chemicals present in cannabis that makes its oil to be medicinally effective. These are cannabidiol and tetrahydrocannabinol.

Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, impacts the brain without a red, and tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as THC, has pain relieving characteristics.

Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the main psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis, and causes the sensation of getting “high” that’s often associated with marijuana. However, unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive.

This quality makes CBD an appealing sought-after option for relief from pain and other symptoms without the mind-altering effects of marijuana or certain pharmaceutical drugs.

CBD oil is made by extracting CBD from the cannabis plant, then diluting it with a carrier oil like coconut or hemp seed oil.

This oil gaining huge momentum in the world of health, with some scientific studies confirming its efficacy to cure range of illness  like chronic pain and anxiety.

Below are five (5) health benefits of CBD oil supported by scientific evidence:

1. Pain Reliever

Cannabis oil is often suggested for people who suffer from chronic pain, inflammation and occasionally in emergency pain relief. Those suffering from cancer often turn to cannabis oil or cannabis-related products when they need relief from the pain of the chemotherapy or the disease itself.

A Canadian study which was published in 2010 demonstrated that cannabis could be used to treat those who were suffering from chronic pain.

The research had a case study on 23 adults who were experiencing neuropathic pain from post-surgery or trauma. 

Over the 2-week duration, the adults were randomly sampled and treated with cannabis in 4 different levels of potency. 

The study inferred a significant decline in the severity of the pain when taken three (3) in a day, with an improved sleeping patterns. 

2. Improves Heart Health

Cannabis oil contains antioxidant properties that could provide beneficial treatment for heart-related sickness.

Animal studies have demonstrated that treatment with cannabis oil tends to prevent some cardiovascular diseases, including atherosclerosis, heart attacks, and strokes. 

In 2014, a British research team discovered that the results of these animal studies were also applicable to human heart conditions. 

They demonstrated that cannabinoids could cause the blood vessels to relax and dilate, and which allows for improved circulation and reduced blood pressure.

3. Eases Anxiety

One of the most common uses of cannabis oil is for the purpose of soothing relief from anxiety and stress.

The natural compounds found in cannabis oil are effective for relaxing the mind, releasing hormones associated with please, reducing feelings of stress, and making users feel calm and relaxed.

4. Protection Against Skin Conditions

Cannabis oil can be applied topically to promote healthy skin tone. When used in this way, the oil can help stimulate the shedding of older skin cells and encourage the growth of new ones to replace them.

Credit to its ability to reduce stress, cannabis oil can help prevent some types of skin diseases that break out during times of anxiety such as eczema or rosacea.

5. Cancerous Treatment 

Cancer is no doubt the most incurable disease in medical history with no substantive remedy from its deadly claws. 

However, there are many alternative practitioners claiming that natural cures already exist.

Many have spoken about the immense potential for cannabis oil to be used successfully in cancer treatment.

Scientists have discovered that some cannabinoids have a variety of positive effects under laboratory conditions, including:

  • Triggering the death of cancer cells through apoptosis
  • Preventing the division of cancer cells
  • Preventing new blood vessels from becoming tumors
  • Reducing the risk of cancer cells spreading through the body and penetrating healthy neighboring tissue

Cannabis oil is not yet medically ascertained as a cure albeit, but its efficacy speaks volume.  There is strong evidence to suggest that cannabis products can have very positive effects on the healing process for those suffering from cancer.
