I’m sure you have noticed a new Hemp store popping up on every block near you. “CBD” is the new health mantra. Is it just a fad or something that should seriously be added as a part of your age-management regimen?

Here are the top 3 benefits of using CBD oil.

1. Reduces Stress, Anxiety, and Depression-
This seems to be related to its activity in both the limbic and paralimbic areas in the brain. It has a direct effect on neurotransmitters including Serotonin and Dopamine, as well as glutamate cortical signaling through 5-HT1A receptors.

2. Aids in Sleep: It tends to provide both relaxation and a calming effect that helps sleep without sedation, so no hangover effect in the morning. CBD has been scientifically proven to reduce anxiety, which improves insomnia and leads to overall better sleep through the night.

3. Chronic Pain- This benefit may be the most extensively studied. It is well known as a safe and effective analgesic for many kinds of pain. In one large metanalysis of 18 clinical trials, CBD strongly and safely reduced the pain associated with arthritis including rheumatoid arthritis, neuropathic pain, fibromyalgia, and multiple sclerosis. Its anti-inflammatory properties are also responsible for reducing the swelling associated with many of these conditions. It can be used with patients wanting to get off opioids by slowly reducing the number of opioids needed by lessening the buildup of tolerance and reducing the severity of withdrawal.
