What is CBD and its uses?
CBD (Cannabidiol) is the chemical derivative of the hemp (Cannabis) plant. Unlike THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD does not produce “high” effects. It means you will not feel any kind of hallucination effects after using CBD. People use CBD in a variety of ways and for a variety of physiological conditions and diseases. The medicinal use is still not approved by medical sciences but some independent research studies have described the following potential health-related uses of CBD,
- CBD have very strong Pain-relieving properties and it can be utilized in any type of chronic pain relief
- CBD is Anti-inflammatory in nature and reduces inflammation in different parts of the body
- CBD can relieve anxiety and depression
- CBD can be used in cancer treatment and can alleviate signs and symptoms of Cancer.
- CBD is Anti-Seizure, for this reason, it might be effective against Epilepsy
Apart from these uses, CBD may also have some antioxidant properties. But unfortunately, the working mechanism of CBD is poorly understood. Some medical researchers have reported that CBD may work by interacting with the Endocannabinoid System of the body but still, a large volume of research is continuing on the medical uses of CBD. Our today’s topic is about CBD Vape Oil and its use for reducing Pain and Anxiety.
What is CBD Vape Oil?
Are you aware of e-cigarettes? It is a marijuana-based device that provides the same taste of cigarettes by inhaling the vapors from it. CBD Vape Oil works on the same mechanism. CBD Vape Oil is CBD Oil containing device inhaler which releases CBD vapors on excitation and the user inhales these vapors. There is very little information available about the use of CBD Vape Oil because most of the clinical trials on CBD bases on CBD capsules, sublingual sprays, and oral solutions, etc. CBD Vape Oil is actually working on condensation of CBD aerosols in the air. CBD requires very little time to react in the human body because it can quickly enter the bloodstream and start affecting. But CBD Vape Oil also has some limitations such as the risk of contamination because the CBD vapors pass through the air before entering the body.
How does CBD Vape Oil Help in reducing pain and anxiety?
ü CBD Vape Oil for Pain relief:
According to many research studies, CBD Oil can relieve any kind of chronic pain by interacting with the Endocannabinoid System of the Body. CBD Oil does so by interacting with the receptors of the Endocannabinoid System. If you don’t aware of the Endocannabinoid System, it is actually an additional immune system in your body that is responsible for the regulation of many important functions of the body including homeostasis. Other functions that are under control of the Endocannabinoid System are emotions, pain reception and inflammation, memory, blood pressure, and body temperature, etc.
Basically, there are two types of Endocannabinoid receptors located throughout the body, CB1 receptors, and CB2 receptors. Both these receptors are responsible for the regulation of the above-given functions. Now, as we know that pain reception is a cell signaling process proceeds in the CNS (Central Nervous System) of the body. When there is everything wrong in the body, CB2 Endocannabinoid receptors start signaling the CNS for pain reception and the body starts feeling pain. When we use CBD, Oil originates from CBD Vape Oil, it starts binding with CB2 Endocannabinoid receptors and changes their chemical composition which results in interruption of pain cell-signaling process. As a result of this mechanism, the body starts feeling relief from pain.
This mechanism of pain relief is proved by a research study done on rats suffering from joint pain and inflammation. CBD was found to be very successful in reducing both pain and inflammation in rats. CBD oil reduces inflammation in the body by interacting with CB2 receptors and stopping inflammation responses.
ü CBD Vape Oil helps in Anxiety:
Anxiety can be caused by various causes such as mental disorders or any kind of other neurodegenerative disorders. CBD Oil found to be very effective in reducing anxiety and depression by interacting with CB1 receptors of the Endocannabinoid System. After interacting with endocannabinoid receptors, CBD Oil actually increases the secretion of the “happy” molecules in the body such as Anandamide. Apart from CB1 endocannabinoid receptors, CBD Oil also affects and trigger those brain receptors which are responsible for happiness in the body. Serotonin are happy receptors and CBD Oil triggers them to induce a happy mood in a patient suffering from anxiety.
CBD may be effective against different anxiety-related disorders such as.
- Generalized Anxiety-related disorders
- Panic situation disorders
- Social Anxiety
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder
This mechanism of anxiety relief by CBD Oil founds its basis from different research studies. For example, in a research study, almost 1400 men have received CBD Oil which is suffering from Social anxiety. The results were really surprising because 40% of the men reported improvement after receiving a 600 mg dose of CBD Oil periodically.
Apart from anxiety, CBD Oil is very effective against depression also. CBD Oil cannot be overdosed because of its safe and non-toxic nature. You can start using CBD Vape Oil with a low dose so you can investigate the effects of it on your body. You should consult with your doctor also in this regard.
