According to the latest report from the World Health Organization, CBD can help reduce the symptoms of a large number of common health conditions.
One of the main benefits of CBD is that it can help reduce the symptoms of anxiety, with the possible exception of PTSD. There is also evidence that CBD can help reduce the symptoms of multiple sclerosis, with some research suggesting that CBD seems to be useful for pain management in many conditions.
The review of research into the use of CBD concluded that there is limited evidence for the use of CBD for the treatment of osteoarthritis. There is also evidence that CBD can help reduce the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, but more research is needed to confirm this. The evidence for the use of CBD for people with epilepsy is limited. The latest review of research into the use of CBD for the treatment of epilepsy concluded that there is limited evidence for the use of CBD for the treatment of epilepsy.
Is CBD Good for Cancer Treatment?
The evidence for the use of CBD for people with cancer is limited. While the research has shown CBD to be helpful for cancer patients, more research is needed to confirm the benefits. The clinical trials are small and preliminary, and most are done in animal models.
The first CBD cancer study of its kind was published in 2017. Authors wrote: “CBD is a potential treatment for patients with certain forms of malignant glioma and in vitro, it has shown anti-tumoral effects.” The study was led by Dr. H. Thomas Gorman, the director of the Institute for Molecular and Cellular Medicine and Biotechnology at Kings College London, U.K. His team included researchers from the University of Nottingham, the University of Glasgow, U.K., the U.S. National Cancer Institute, and the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.
Patients from this study had to survive for one month on a CBD-rich diet. Some of the patients received up to $180,000 (U.K.) in compensation. The study was published in the peer-reviewed Journal Frontiers in Plant Science. Dr. Gorman, who is also a cancer specialist, said: “CBD does not give you the feeling that you are in a hospital or on a ventilator. This is the first study which has looked at this side effect.” He said the side effects had been mild, and the best way to reduce them was to reduce dose.
One patient who stopped using CBD after the study ended went on to use it for a year and a half, and the results were not good. “I have had a number of side effects which are minor, and I have used CBD for a long time and have no intention of trying it again,” he said. Another patient with cancer who stopped using the drug also came back later. Some patients took 200mg CBD daily. “I would not recommend taking it if you have cancer,” he said. But some people who have used CBD for cancer give it to their children so they can see whether it works.
Moreover, some people have switched to CBD for sleep issues so they can get a better quality of sleep.
What are the side effects of CBD?
The side effects of CBD are relatively mild, and the research now is focused on finding its most effective uses. Some people have found that CBD has less potential side effects than other drugs used for medical use and that CBD is a more natural alternative to opioids because it doesn’t produce the high associated with opioids.
CBD is a non-psychoactive compound found in marijuana. Depending on the type of marijuana used, they produce different amounts of THC and CBD. The higher THC levels are more potent, and this is the reason why the medical community has started to refer to CBD as the “non-psychoactive” cannabinoid. The amount of THC produced by marijuana is regulated by the federal Food and Drug Administration, and the cannabinoid levels are generally considered safe by the FDA.
