Benefits of CBD (and other Endocannabinoids) and Why You Should Try it!

Though CBD is non psychoactive and a wonderful natural solution to many ailments, there is still much skepticism surrounding its benefits. At Sweet Life CBD, we want to encourage people to learn more about CBD and all the wonderful uses it can have. New research is coming out everyday regarding this cannabinoid and how it can help a multitude of issues.

Pain Relief

Our bodies have a special system called the Endocannabinoid System which helps maintain balance and wellbeing (one aspect being pain sensation). Because CBD interacts specifically with the Endocannabinoid System, it can help with many different kinds of pain. Some things people find relief from CBD are:

Arthritis

Injuries

Pain post Surgery

Joint pain

Nerve damage

Back pain

Shoulder pain

Tendonitis

Headaches

Pain due to cancer

Fibromyalgia

PMS

Anti Anxiety

CBD can also have mood boosting properties and calm the anxious mind. Because it directly interacts with your dopamine receptors it can help you feel better. (Dopamine is the neurochemical known as the feel good chemical.) Additionally, CBD can assist in slowing the production of cortisol- the stress inducing hormone.

Reduces Inflammation

Research has started to show that CBD can be useful in reducing inflammation in the joints due to arthritis, fibromyalgia and injuries. In this way, CBD doesn’t just intercept the pain receptors in your brain to make the pain go away, it can help address the root of the problem by reducing inflammation thereby actually making the problem better.

What People Use CBD For

Helps Treat Insomnia

Because CBD can help address stress (as mentioned above) it can calm your mind to get ready for bed. Even more helpful for sleep is CBN- often called the ‘sleepy cannabinoid’. CBN is a cannabinoid like CBD (non psychoactive) but it targets relaxation and sleepiness specifically. CBN can help you fall asleep and stay asleep but does so without the morning grogginess unlike melatonin.

Can Have Antibacterial Properties

There is more and more research coming out about how exactly CBD can help protect you against bacteria. This can be huge in the fight against antibiotic resistant bacteria strains that are becoming more common in the modern age of medicine. Click here to see more about this.
