CBD (cannabidiol) is a chemical found in marijuana. Yet, it doesn’t have the same ability to create a high because it lacks THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the chemical responsible for most of marijuana’s psychological effects. So people who take CBD can simply reap the health benefits.

While usually formulated as an oil, CBD can also be sold as an extract, vaporized liquid, oil-based capsule, and fruit chew. Even skincare product lines are coming on board.

CBD is continuing to gain momentum in the world of health and wellness. Scientific studies are out, and while research is limited, here’s a list of conditions CBD may treat!

Anxiety

Studies have shown that CBD may be effective for those with anxiety and depression. In fact, a journal published in 2015 that evidence supports CBD as a treatment for anxiety, encompassing social anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Epilepsy

CBD products may also help those with epilepsy better tolerate their anti-seizure medications. Epidiolex is a prescription medicine and CBD oil solution approved by the FDA to treat seizures, specifically Dravet syndrome, Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, and tuberous sclerosis complex.

Insomnia

By reducing certain symptoms, CBD may treat insomnia. CBD can help:

  • to regulate cortisol, the body’s main stress hormone, which significantly impacts non-REM sleep cycles.
  • with pain relief more so than pharmaceutical pain relievers.
  • with pregnancy-related insomnia.
  • soothe aching muscles.
  • reduce restlessness and nightmares associated with REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD).

Multiple Sclerosis

A study from 2018 shared that supplementing with CBD may help people with multiple sclerosis. By reducing their fatigue, pain, and spasticity with CBD, they can ultimately improve their mobility.

Neuropathic Pain

Peripheral neuropathy is a condition in which nerves become damaged or are no longer working properly. Symptoms include a numb, tingling, or pins-and-needles sensation in the hands and feet, which often leads to a sharp, burning, or throbbing pain.

Studies suggest that CBD can be an effective supplement for managing nerve pain.

Chronic Pain

One review from 2018 evaluated how well CBD works to relieve chronic pain. In the end, researchers said CBD is effective in managing overall pain, and negative side effects didn’t occur.

Schizophrenia

Two studies suggest potential health benefits for schizophrenia. In a 2021 review, researchers shared that CBD may change the levels of brain chemicals for people in the early stages and, therefore, reduce symptoms of psychosis.

Another review from that year noted high doses of CBD might reduce symptoms of schizophrenia. The results showed that a 4-week trial of 88 mg of CBD relieved psychosis and improved cognition.

Skin Problems

CBD oil may be beneficial for a number of skin conditions. These include:

  • acne,
  • dryness and itching,
  • skin infections,
  • and, surprisingly, the appearance of aging.
