CBD oil is becoming more well known across the country for its health benefits. Have you heard about CBD and wondered what all the fuss was about? What benefits does it actually have for the average consumer?
Dr. Gabe Ellis, a practicing chiropractor and co-founder of the CBD company Mahalo Wellness, is here to help walk through the 5 biggest benefits you can expect from taking CBD oil daily.
Inflammation is the precursor to every disease in the body – everything starts with at least some level of inflammation, from the common cold all the way up to cancer. Studies have shown that the use of CBD can help reduce the inflammation in an immune system, which can reduce the level of pain a person feels.
However, reducing inflammation is actually not always a good thing. Inflammation typically has a purpose, whether it’s designed to trap bacteria, keep damaged parts of the body away from healthier parts,
or simply isolate an infection to keep it from spreading. Therefore, reducing inflammation would actually make some conditions worse, so it’s important to look at the effect of cannabis on the immune system on a more case-by-case basis.
However, there are certain conditions that are caused by an overactive immune system, such as allergies, IBS, MS, and arthritis. In these conditions, the immune system’s overactivity results in chronic inflammation, which can be treated by CBD without any of the negative side effects associated with other medications.
#2: Chronic Pain
Many people who struggle with chronic pain currently take pills such as Advil and Tylenol, often having to take multiple pills per day just to attempt to function normally. This can have adverse effects on the kidneys, among other undesirable side effects. CBD is an amazing alternative to these types of medications – it deals with pain management just as effectively, if not more effectively, than these pills, and with none of the negative side effects.
#3: Sleep Disorders
Sleep is undervalued in our society, with only a small percentage of people actually getting a healthy amount on a nightly basis. Most people wake up feeling no more refreshed than they did when they went to sleep, and things like insomnia are still a serious issue for many. CBD is a great way to manage with this, as it works with the systems of your body to allow you to get the sleep your body truly needs. Getting enough sleep also allows your body to function more efficiently and create a higher level of wellness for yourself, which is the ultimate goal of our CBD products.
#4: Gut Issues
CBD can also be valuable in assisting people with various gut-related disorders, such as IBS, Crohn’s, Celiac’s, acid reflux, and more. CBD works with your body’s systems to allow them to run more efficiently and make the symptoms of those diseases much more manageable. The digestive system is one of many systems that have been shown to react positively to CBD, and to function more effectively as a result of CBD consumption.
Migraines and other types of headaches are also something that negatively affects the lives of millions. Prescription or over-the-counter drugs are common remedies for these problems, but like the various pain pills, often come with various negative side effects. CBD has been proven to be a valuable alternative to migraine medications, with similar levels of effectiveness in treating symptoms, but none of the negative side effects. In addition, CBD’s effect on limiting pain and inflammation plays directly into its effectiveness in treating migraines.
In conclusion, CBD is a valuable supplement that can be used to effectively treat many common and undesirable health conditions, without any of the negative side effects often associated with traditional medications.
