BENEFITS AS TAKEN FROM MEDICALNEWSTODAY.COM

Because of the way that CBD acts in the body, it has many potential benefits.


Natural pain relief and anti-inflammatory properties


People tend to use prescription or over-the-counter drugs to relieve stiffness and pain, including chronic pain.

Some people believe that CBD offers a more natural alternative.

Authors of a study published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine found that CBD significantly reduced chronic inflammation and pain in some mice and rats.

The researchers suggested that the non-psychoactive compounds in  marijuana, such as CBD, could constitute a new treatment for chronic pain.


Quitting smoking and drug withdrawals


Some promising evidence suggests that CBD use may help people to quit smoking. A pilot study published in Addictive Behaviors  found that smokers who used inhalers containing CBD smoked fewer  cigarettes than usual and had no further cravings for nicotine.

A similar review, published in Neurotherapeutics found that CBD may be a promising treatment for people with opioid addiction disorders.

The researchers noted that CBD reduced some symptoms associated with substance use disorders. These included anxiety, mood-related symptoms, pain, and insomnia.

More research is necessary, but these findings suggest that CBD may help to prevent or reduce withdrawal symptoms.


Epilepsy

After researching the safety and effectiveness of CBD oil for treating epilepsy, the FDA approved the use of CBD (Epidiolex) as a therapy for two rare conditions characterized by of epileptic seizures.

In the U.S., a doctor can prescribe Epidiolex to treat:

  • Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS), a condition that appears between the  ages of 3 and 5 years and involves different kinds of seizures
  • Dravet syndrome (DS), a rare genetic condition that appears in the  first year of life and involves frequent, fever-related seizures

The types of seizures that characterize LGS or DS are difficult to control with other types of medication.

The FDA specified that doctors could not prescribe Epidiolex for children younger than 2 years. A physician or pharmacist will determine the right dosage based on body weight.


Other neurological symptoms and disorders

Researchers are studying the effects of CBD on various neuropsychiatric disorders.

Authors of a 2014 review noted that CBD has anti-seizure properties and a low risk of side effects for people with epilepsy.

Studies suggest that CBD may also treat many complications linked to  epilepsy, such as neurodegeneration, neuronal injury, and psychiatric  diseases.

Another study, published in Current Pharmaceutical Design,  found that CBD may produce effects similar to those of certain  antipsychotic drugs, and that the compound may provide a safe and  effective treatment for people with schizophrenia.


Fighting cancer

Some researchers have found that CBD may prove to combat cancer.

Authors of a review published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology found evidence that CBD significantly helped to prevent the spread of cancer.

In addition, the researchers noted that the compound tends to suppress the growth of cancer cells and promote their destruction.

The authors pointed out that CBD has low levels of toxicity and  called for further research into its potential as an accompaniment to  standard cancer treatments.


Anxiety disorders

Doctors often advise people with chronic anxiety to avoid cannabis,  as THC can trigger or amplify feelings of anxiousness and paranoia.

However, authors of a review from Neurotherapeutics found that CBD may help to reduce anxiety in people with certain related disorders.

According to the review, CBD may reduce anxiety-related behaviors in people with conditions such as:

The authors noted that current treatments for these disorders can  lead to additional symptoms and side effects, which can cause some  people to stop taking them.

No further definitive evidence currently links CBD to adverse  effects, and the authors called for further studies of the compound as a  treatment for anxiety.


Type 1 diabetes

Type 1 diabetes results from inflammation that occurs when the immune system attacks cells in the pancreas.

Research published in 2016 by Clinical Hemorheology and Microcirculation  found that CBD may ease this inflammation in the pancreas. This may be  the first step in finding a CBD-based treatment for type 1 diabetes.

A paper presented in the same year in Lisbon, Portugal, suggested that CBD may reduce inflammation and protect against or delay the development of type 1 diabetes.


Acne

Acne  treatment is another promising use for CBD. The condition is caused, in  part, by inflammation and overworked sebaceous glands in the body.

A 2014 study published by the Journal of Clinical Investigation  found that CBD helps to lower the production of sebum that leads to  acne, partly because of its anti-inflammatory effect on the body. Sebum  is an oily substance, and overproduction can cause acne.

CBD could become a future treatment for acne vulgaris, the most common form of acne.


Alzheimer's disease

Initial research published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease found that CBD was able to prevent the development of social recognition deficit in participants.

This means that CBD could help people in the early stages of  Alzheimer's to keep the ability to recognize the faces of people that  they know.

This is the first evidence that CBD may slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease.

FAQ'S

 

Is CBD oil legal?

Yes, 'THC Free' CBD oil obtained from hemp is legal in all 50 states.  The FDA considers hemp-derived cannabinoids to be food-based products,  so their importation and consumption is not restricted. However, it is  not legal to grow hemp in most of the US states. For this reason, many  companies producing CBD oil or other cannabidiol-rich supplements,  source their hemp from states or countries where it is legal to grow it.  Hempnetix CBD is derived from Colorado grown hemp.


Can I fail a drug test using CBD from Hempentix?

It depends on which CBD product(s) you are taking. Our CBD products labeled as THC Free will not  cause you to fail a drug test for THC. 


Drug tests geared toward  cannabinoids could come back as positive.


What is the difference between CBD Isolate and Full-Spectrum CBD?

Products made from CBD Isolate do not benefit from the desired entourage  effect because all the beneficial components of the plant are removed,  leaving only the CBD. On the other hand Full-Spectrum CBD products from  Hempnetix, contain CBD as well as over 200 natural and beneficial  terpenes and cannabinoids, just as nature intended.


 As stated by HEMPNETIX, our 'Full Spectrum' CBD contains useful cannabinoids such as CBDA and  CBDV. For instance research suggests that CBDA offers Anti-inflammatory,  anti-nausea, antioxidant, antibacterial and antimicrobial properties.  CBDV can significantly reduce the frequency and severity of seizures. It  also reduces or even eliminates the nausea associated with several  conditions, and helps to reduce inflammation throughout the body. CBDV  is also beneficial in the treatment of pain and mood disorders.


 'Full Spectrum' CBD from Hempentix also contains useful terpenes like  'Humulene' which has anti-inflammatory properties. The terpene  'Beta-caryophyllene' activates the CB2 receptor and offers great promise  as a therapeutic compound for inflammatory conditions and auto-immune  disorders. The terpene 'bisabolol' (aka α-Bisabolol) has become a  subject of research for medical benefits such as anti-inflammatory,  anti-irritant, antioxidant, anti-microbial and analgesic properties.


How long does it take to feel the effects of CBD?

The effects of CBD are of relief, not of euphoria. Often times they are  overlooked when first using CBD. The effects of relief usually begin  20-30 minutes after consuming or applying CBD depending on the strength  of the product.


How much CBD oil should I take?

This mainly depends on which product you are using, how you use it, and  how your body adapts to it. We recommend starting with a minimal dose, once or twice a day and see if this dosage works for you. If  you’re new to using a CBD supplement, we encourage you to discuss with  your healthcare professional any specific questions you may have.


Does CBD have any side-effects?

Hemp is considered to be generally safe. You should not see any  side-effects of using CBD. However, you should consult your physician  before using dietary supplements like CBD.


Does CBD interact with other medications?

Yes. CBD inhibits the cytochrome P450 enzyme, which is involved in  metabolizing many drugs. Compounds in grapefruit inhibit the same enzyme  group, which is why physicians advice patients not to eat grapefruit  shortly before or after taking a medication. By inhibiting cytochrome  P450, CBD can either reduce or increase the effects of other drugs. In  some situations, it may be advisable for a physician to monitor a  patient’s blood levels of other medications while taking CBD.
