The marijuana plant has been used for medicinal reasons for centuries by many people around the world. Recently, more and more states are going towards legalization of the plant, which will lead to various health benefits for many suffering from ailments or diseases. Below is a closer look at the plant and its many uses regarding health.
How The Oil is Derived
CBD Oil is extracted from the marijuana plant and is mixed with either coconut oil or hemp seed oil so that it is diluted into proper concentrations for use. Studies and tests have concluded that this oil has the ability to treat various forms of pain, reduce anxiety, and increase one’s appetite. Not only that, but it has also been proven in treating some types of seizures.
Aside from the health concerns listed above, the oil has treated acne, anorexia, chronic pain, insomnia, substance abuse, epilepsy, glaucoma, high blood pressure, muscle spasms, Parkinson’s disease, and more. More and more research is necessary in order to understand the full benefits of the plant and the oil derived from it. However, with the little amount of studies already performed, more and more people are turning to it because of its natural healing powers.
Possible Side Effects
Although the use of the oil is considered a natural remedy, there are a few side effects that can occur. These symptoms include anxiety, changes in mood and appetite, diarrhea, drowsiness, dizziness, vomiting, dry mouth, and nausea. Your primary doctor should always be aware of any alternative treatments you are undergoing so that they can monitor your overall health. It is also advised that anyone that is pregnant or breastfeeding should not use the oil for treatment.
More and more people are turning to a holistic and natural approach when it comes to treating various symptoms and ailments they suffer from. The marijuana plant has a chemical that has been proven to relieve many symptoms patients deal with. Not to mention, the use of the oil does not have any properties that can lead them to abuse the substance, unlike prescription medications.
