Everyone is asking, what is CBD Oil used for? Now, if you know anything about CBD, you know that the FDA frowns upon unsupported claims. However, the body of research is growing providing a foundation for truly exploring the benefits of CBD in general.

One recent study found that CBD helps recovering opiate addicts recover from their disease with less stress and more success! “CBD’s potential to reduce cue-induced craving and anxiety provides a strong basis for further investigation of this Phyto cannabinoid as a treatment option for opioid use disorder. ” Source of Quote So, I find it refreshing to know that research into these areas are proceeding full steam ahead! They have also addressed the issue of the safety and the CBD study states “There were no significant effects on cognition, and there were no serious adverse effects.”

What have the studies found out?

To use their words “Cannabidiol has anecdotally been reported to have myriad benefits in addition to improving seizure control. Increased alertness, improved verbal communication,  better social interaction, and better mood were the most commonly reported beneficial side effects. Increased alertness and improved verbal skills were reported more frequently with CBD…” Citation for Quote. Please take time to read this study, you will see that it was directed towards CBD’s ability to treat Epilepsy. You should take your time reading it because their analysis is complicated.  Essentially, they conclude that CBD does have use in treating Epilepsy. Again, read the study linked above for a better understanding.

The bottom line is that the research is showing that CBD oil has a lot of positive effects. There must be more research done to confirm the results linked above. However, I can tell you from personal experience, it has done a great deal to help treat my anxiety and pain. Try some for yourself after taking a look at the studies and see if it will work for you!
