What does CBD do?

CBD is most commonly used to address anxiety, and for patients who suffer from the insomnia or any other sleep disorders. Studies suggest that CBD may help with falling asleep and staying asleep. CBD has also been know to help those who suffer from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). Also a small study has found that CBD seemed to reduce nervousness and cognitive impairment in patients with social anxiety in a simulated public speaking task.

CBD can also offer an option for treating different types of chronic pain. According to the National Centers for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH), some evidence suggests that cannabis or CBD could have modest benefits for chronic pain. Some researchers think that CBD interacts with a core component of the ECS — endocannabinoid receptors in your brain and in your immune system.

These tiny receptors are proteins that attach to your cells. They then receive signals, mostly chemical ones, from different stimuli and help your cells respond.

This response creates anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects that help with pain management. This means that CBD oil and other products may benefit people with chronic pain, such as chronic back pain, multiple sclerois, and fybromyalgia.
