I Bet You Had No Idea CBD Could Do These 5 Things

CBD Could Do These 5 Things

Alright, so we all know that CBD is pretty much a miracle cannabis compound that’s capable of taking care of, well, pretty much everything in the human body (with zero side effects), right?

Ok, so that might be just a slight exaggeration, but the fact of the matter is that most of us are well aware of CBD’s therapeutic and medicinal properties, which include its ability to fight off things like inflammation, pain, stress, and even insomnia. But what else can CBD do? Given its wildly far-reaching chemical mechanisms in the body, it’s got to have some more, rather less heard of uses, right?

Indeed it does. In this article, I’m going to talk about 5 unique things that CBD can do, that you haven’t likely heard of yet.

1. Helps to Curb Cigarette Addiction

It’s true – CBD has been shown to work wonders in helping cigarette smokers curb their addictive habits, and even to help cut off their tobacco intake 100% cold turkey.

In a 2013 report published in Addictive Behaviors, for example, researchers isolated 24 tobacco smokers for a week and randomly gave them either a placebo or a CBD “puffer” treatment, with the instructions to take a puff every time they had a craving for a cigarette.

The results? Over the course of the week, the placebo “puffer” didn’t show to have any effect on the number of cigarettes consumed, while the CBD treatment actually reduced the total number of cigarettes smoked by 40%!

Moreover, it is also known that CBD has similar properties in helping to curb other addictions as well, including addiction to opiates, painkillers, other hard drugs, and alcohol. If you’re trying to kick a smoking habit of your own, definitely give non-psychoactive CBD oil a try, as like I just mentioned, the clinical studies don’t lie.

2. Works Wonders as an Acne Treatment

I actually did an article not too long ago to try and answer the question of ‘does weed cause acne.’ Short of reiterating the entire piece, it was basically inconclusive in determining whether or not the actual act of smoking promotes acne. Basically, though, it seems like it’s not the marijuana itself that inherently promotes breakouts, but rather other “byproducts” of smoking — such as eating loads of oily junk food when you have the munchies!

In any regard, what does seem to be pretty clear is the fact that CBD (particularly high-quality topical CBD creams) does a pretty darn good as an actual acne-treatment medication. In one 2014 study, for example (published by none other than the National Institute of Health), it was shown that cannabis-derived CBD acted as an effect “sebostatic,” which essentially means that it inhibits sebaceous lipid synthesis – the underlying cause of acne (and other skin) breakouts.

Application of even a dime-sized amount of quality CBD cream can prove to work wonders in clearing up inflamed, irritated, and acne-damaged skin.

3. Tastes Great in Tea… and Coffee!

This one’s actually probably not too much of a “secret,” given the fact that it’s been known for quite some time that CBD can be made into a wicked-good tea or coffee. Basically, all you do is steep the raw hemp leaves (and/or stems and seeds) in hot water – just like you would any other tea. The active CBD cannabinoids come out in solution, and can do wonders in terms of promoting daily and long-term health, even if you don’t suffer from a current medical condition.

Of course, given that hemp leaves are generally much less CBD-rich than the flowers, even a high-strength CBD tea would probably not have the same effect on something like chronic pain that say, a high-potency CBD oil would have.

However, CBD taken in the form of a daily tea may serve to have incredibly far-reaching disease prevention components, including reducing the likelihood of developing diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. Sounds good to us — and yummy!

4. Can Be Used as an Ultra-Healthy All-Purpose Cooking Oil

So this one is definitely one of my favorite “non-medical” CBD uses! Instead of using vegetable-based oils that are actually high in linoleic acid, why not replace your go-to cooking oil with a mild CBD-based oil? It doesn’t have the ultra-bitter taste of some pure CBD medicinal hemp oils, and the best part is (like I talked about above with the CBD teas and coffees), it can be a great way to incorporate an extra element of vitamins and supplements into your daily diet!

Oh and also, homemade cannabis oils are incredibly easy to make!

5. Can Be Made Into an Energy Drink!

Alright so admittedly this one might be a little bit far-fetched, but taking into consideration the known energy-producing and focus-enhancing components of CBD, there certainly is no reason why you couldn’t throw together a liquid CBD concoction that would act as a great (and healthy) afternoon pick-me-up!

CBD is known to engage in energy-promoting pathways that are different from that of caffeine (which of course produces the infamous “caffeine crash”), so maybe – just maybe – a CBD “energy drink” would provide the PERFECT type of long-lasting energy supply!

Honorable Mention: CBD for Mad Cow Disease!?

Well, I couldn’t leave this one out. Even though I haven’t heard anything about Mad Cow Disease for years and years, apparently CBD oil works to halt a class of protein molecules called prions, which are known to cause the neurodegenerative aspects of the disease.

In fact, in one study carried out on mice in a controlled setting, the administration of CBD to animals infected with Mad Cow was observed to prolong life by about a week when compared to the mice who had not been treated with CBD.

Bet you’d ever heard of that one, huh?

Final Thoughts: 5 Unique Uses for CBD Oil

Well, hopefully this article provided a bit of fun, informative, and useful tips on how you can use CBD in other ways than its known medicinal uses! CBD truly is a miraculous, all-natural cannabis compound, and I will surely be discovering many additional uses for it as the years go by and quality research on it continues to improve.

    I didn’t know that there was CBD tea before. That is really cool that it could help with disease prevention. I will have to give it a try sometime.

Getting Started with CBD Oil

If you suffer from anxiety (like me), depression or pain and are looking to get started with CBD oil, you need information on how to buy CBD oil, or you’re simply looking to learn more about CBD products, you’ve arrived at the right place.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol, aka CBD, is a compound found in the cannabis plant that has significant medical benefits. CBD can be extracted from two different species of the Cannabis Sativa L plant, which include Cannabis and Hemp. Unlike its rival THC, CBD does not make people feel “stoned” and can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC.

One of the main advantages of CBD is its non-psychoactive affect making it a great option for people looking for relief from inflammation, anxiety, insomnia, seizures, spasms, and other conditions.
 
As I mentioned above the primary distinction between Hemp and CBD oil is the part of the plant they are derived from and what parts of the plant are used to create the oil. Hemp oil is typically made from pressing cannabis seeds to extract the fatty oil from within, while some that have mastered the CBD extraction process also use the flowers as they contain high percentages of CBD. CBD oil, on the other hand, is usually made from the flowers of cannabis plant through various extraction methods.

How Does CBD Affect Your Body?

The way marijuana affects your body varies from person to person as it will often depend on genetics, tolerance to the cannabinoids, medical health, DNA, and more. It also depends on the way you consume the CBD, for example, the effects of vaping CBD are far different to smoking it in the form of high-CBD cannabis strains. 

CBD and the way it affects us is still of somewhat a mystery to researchers they still try to figure out how it effects the EndoCannabinoid system. During the previous century, it was discovered that our bodies have receptors within the brain and central nervous system. Specific cannabinoids such as CBD bind to those receptors and activate the EndoCannabinoid System (ECS). This then provides a wide range of psychological and physical benefits helping the body.

Without going into specifics, cannabinoids signal to the body to create endocannabinoids and build more receptors. This helps the body to limit things associated with pain and inflammation, repairs cells and provides a wide range of other health benefits. Unlike other cannabinoids, CBD is thought to be the ultimate anti-inflammatory cannabinoid.

Medical Benefits of CBD

There is a misconception as to whether CBD can help treat patients, similar to pharmaceutical medicine, but thanks to the internet and a few different medical studies patients and researchers have been exposing their findings on how CBD oil is helping to cure a wide range of medical conditions.

The most popular story was the one of Charlotte Figi. At the time Charlotte was only 6 years old. As a little girl, she was experiencing over 300 epileptic seizures per week until she was successfully treated by a CBD-rich strain oil, later named Charlotte’s Web.

The high-quality CBD oil, changed her life, helping her to overcome a 6-year battle. Since her story hit the news, CBD and other cannabinoids of the cannabis plant are constantly being researched to understand how they can help to treat different medical conditions. As a matter of fact, CBD has been thought to help treat over 170 medical conditions, among them severe conditions such as Anorexia, Cancer, Arthritis, Depression, Anxiety, Chronic Pain, Insomnia, Glaucoma, multiple sclerosis and PTSD.

Recent studies have even shown that CBD, may cure life-threatening diseases by altering genes. Other studies have proven that it might even be an effective treatment for osteoarthritis and chronic pain.

The way that CBD works is that it interacts with receptors located in different parts of the central nervous system. These receptors are called CB1 and CB2. Both reflect the areas of the brain they interact with such as the limbic system. When taking CBD, this cannabinoid locks in on these receptors and affects the body in different ways. For example, it can help to block the pain caused by specific medical conditions.

While numerous studies have shown promising results, it is important to understand that CBD research is still at premature stages. A 2011 study that researched CBD for fibromyalgia showed extremely promising results. 56 of 112 participants who took CBD in the form of oil saw a great reduction in their symptoms and pain, while those using traditional methods didn’t see hardly any improvement.

Can you Buy CBD if you live in an illegal state?

The process is not cut-&-dry, and but thanks to the Farm Bill of 2014, forms of CBD can now be delivered to your doorstep. Those that live in recreational states can purchase CBD cannabis oil which is high in potency and extremely effective for helping to treat severe medical conditions, while those that live in other states that are not medical or recreational can benefit from CBD hemp oil. CBD Hemp oil is perfect for helping to treat a wide range of conditions including anxiety, depression and acute pain.
