CBD (Cannabidiol) has been shown to provide remarkable health outcomes for a diverse set of health maladies. With the explosion of interest regarding CBD, many people are searching for accurate information regarding studies for particular ailments and how they are affected by CBD. For each health condition we have included a link to the referenced study from PubMed.gov, the US National Library of Medicine, from the National Institutes of Health.

We hope this information might offer some insights and point you toward reliable sources of health information for you and your family.


CBD For Anorexia

Also known as anorexia nervosa, this disorder is most often characterized by below average weight because an individual does not eat enough. Quite often, people with this disorder have a strong fear of putting on too much weight. It is not uncommon for those with this problem to  visualize themselves as being too fat, when in reality, they are far too skinny.

This article from PubMed mentions the fact that endocannabinoids (endogenous cannabinoids) could help to provide a solution for this problem by being used as a therapeutic target. The article also suggests that endocannabinoids might aid with nutritional restoration and antidepressive effects.

View the study here: “Leptin, ghrelin, and endocannabinoids: potential therapeutic targets in anorexia nervosa.”

CBD For Colitis Or Crohn’s

Colitis is a digestive disorder that occurs when the colon becomes inflamed. Doctors treating this condition will often try numerous approaches until they find one that works. Treatments of this disease include steroids, immunosuppressants, and anti-inflammatory medications.

However, there are many exciting new approaches that use cannabidiol (CBD) in order to treat this digestive disease.

As this article explains, CBD is capable of controlling reactive gliosis in the nervous system. This form of treatment produces no psychotropic effects. It was also confirmed that CBD reduces the damage to the intestines by counteracting the LPS-induced intestinal inflammation in both mice and humans by controlling the neuroimmune axis.

View the study here: “Cannabidiol reduces intestinal inflammation through the control of neuroimmune axis.”

CBD For Endocrine Disorders

The most common type of endocrine disorder is diabetes. Here is a list of several others:

Hypopituitarism

This condition occurs when the pituitary gland is releasing very few hormones, if any at all.

Precocious puberty

Sex hormones are released when an individual is too young.

Adrenal insufficiency

Aldosterone and cortisol are not released in adequate amounts.

Hyperthyroidism

An excessive amount of thyroid hormone is produced, and this leads to an accelerated heart rate and weight loss.

Hypothyroidism

Insufficient amounts of thyroid hormone are created by the thyroid gland, and this leads to depression and fatigue.

Cushing’s disease

The adrenal gland becomes overactive because the pituitary gland is releasing too much adrenocorticotropic hormone.

Gigantism

The various body parts and bones of a young individual grow too quickly because the pituitary gland is creating too much growth hormone.

These diseases may be classified into two types:

  1. Hormone Imbalance – This happens when a gland does not produce enough of a hormone.
  2. Lesions – Tumors or nodules develop and may interfere with hormone production.

Fortunately, many in the scientific community have noticed that the endocannabinoid system is involved in several of the regulatory actions of the endocrine system. The CB1 receptor and CB2 receptor (components of the endocannabinoid system) were found to be targets of the psychotropic aspect of Cannabis sativa. They participate in the functioning of multiple activities occurring within the endocrine system. That means these two receptors control many things like energy balance and food intake.

This is why drugs that affect the endocannabinoid system are now considered to be strong possibilities for treating certain medical conditions like obesity.

View the study here: “The emerging role of the endocannabinoid system in endocrine regulation and energy balance.”

CBD For Metabolic Syndrome

Metabolic syndrome is a disorder that arises when three or more of the following medical conditions occur simultaneously:

  • high serum triglycerides
  • low high-density lipoprotein
  • high blood sugar
  • abdominal obesity
  • high blood pressure

Approximately 25% of the adults in the U.S. have this complication, and it is associated with the development of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Interestingly enough, Cannabidiol has been found that it might offer many new exciting options for the treatment of metabolic syndrome. It is usually administered in addition to the initial treatment and produces very few side effects.

View the study here: “The potential use of cannabidiol in the therapy of metabolic syndrome indirect agonism of 5-HT(1A) somadendritic autoreceptors in the dorsal raphe nucleus.”

CBD For Mood Disorders

There are two primary categories of mood disorders: elevated and depressed. They may be caused by various substances, or they might be responses to certain medical conditions. There have been many treatments used to combat these conditions.

According to the article below, it is now known that cannabidiol is capable of treating many of these psychiatric disorders. However, more studies are needed to investigate these treatment options because there are so many possible options that might exist.

View the study here: “Multiple mechanisms involved in the large-spectrum therapeutic potential of cannabidiol in psychiatric disorders.”

CBD For Motion Sickness

This condition occurs when there is a disparity between an individual’s visual perception and their sense of movement. The most common forms of this phenomenon are airsickness, seasickness, and car sickness. Motion sickness often causes vomiting.

Interestingly enough, the article below confirms that impaired endocannabinoid activity is associated with motion sickness. This is why increasing the signals coming from the endocannabinoid system could provide viable therapy options, especially for those who are not responding to current methods of treatment.

View the study here: “Motion sickness, stress and the endocannabinoid system.”

CBD For Nausea

This is when one feels like vomiting. It occurs in the stomach and can be very upsetting when it lasts for extended periods of time. There are many things that can cause this medical condition, including anxiety, medication, and pregnancy. Medications that treat nausea are called antiemetics.

There is exciting new evidence that cannabidiol helps to alleviate nausea. It does this by indirectly activating certain autoreceptors in the dorsal raphe nucleus, which is located in the brain stem. This process is described in more detail in the following article…

View the study here: “Cannabidiol, a non-psychotropic component of cannabis, attenuates vomiting and nausea-like behaviour via indirect agonism of 5-HT(1A) somatodendritic autoreceptors in the dorsal raphe nucleus.”

CBD For Neurodegeneration Disorder

This condition occurs when neurons either die or fail. Some of the more common types of this disorder include Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.

These conditions are incurable.

However, there is now a lot of emerging evidence that cannabidiol offers therapeutic potential for these types of diseases. Because of this evidence, it is becoming more and more necessary to identify the molecular targets that are responsible for cannabidiol’s therapeutic effects.

View the study here: “Molecular targets of cannabidiol in neurological disorders.”

CBD For Neuropathic Pain

This condition is pain that is caused when the somatosensory nervous system is damaged. It may be classified into two categories: disorders of the peripheral nervous system and disorders of the central nervous system. It should be noted that there is also a third type of this condition, and it is a hybridization of the two.

Quite often, this problem is caused by chemotherapy. However, as the article below suggests, cannabidiol may be used as a way to alleviate this sort of neuropathic pain. In addition, this form of treatment promises to be safe because it does not seem to alter the effects of chemotherapy or the proper functioning of the nervous system.

View the study here: “Cannabidiol inhibits paclitaxel-induced neuropathic pain through 5-HT(1A) receptors without diminishing nervous system function or chemotherapy efficacy.”

CBD For Osteoporosis And Bone Health

This condition occurs when the bones are so weak that there is an above average chance that the victim will break a bone. This disease often accompanies such things like anorexia, hyperthyroidism, or kidney disease; it can also be caused by old age.

However, according to the latest research, there is good news…

The article below states that there is a cannabinoid receptor (CB1) that guards against osteoporosis caused by old age. It does this by regulation of adipocyte and osteoblast differentiation in the stromal cells of bone marrow.

View the study here: “Cannabinoid receptor type 1 protects against age-related osteoporosis by regulating osteoblast and adipocyte differentiation in marrow stromal cells.”

CBD For Prion / Mad Cow Disease

Also known as bovine spongiform encephalopathy, this disease affects the nerves and causes the brain to develop holes as it deteriorates. Its period of incubation may last up to five years and is caused by the infection of prions.

When this disease was found to be common in bovines from England, over four million cows were slaughtered in an attempt to get rid of it.

Some of the latest research has found, as reported in the article below, that cannabidiol inhibited the neurotoxic effects of prion infection. Because of these findings, it is stated that cannabidiol might offer several new treatment options for mad cow disease. 

View the study here: “Non-psychoactive cannabidiol prevents prion accumulation and protects neurons against prion toxicity.”

CBD For Rheumatism

This disorder refers to multiple conditions that cause pain in the connective tissue and the joints. This term rheumatism is usually used to describe arthritis, but it can also refer to other conditions that bring about this type of pain. In fact, this word is used to refer to any disorder of the connective tissue.
The immune system uses oxidative stress to combat this condition and repair the tissue that was infected by it. However, oxidative stress is also capable of damaging the organs of the body.

The good news is that cannabidiol may assist in the reduction of inflammation caused by oxidative stress. This means that cannabidiol might be an effective aid for treatment of rheumatism.

View the study here: “Cannabidiol as an emergent therapeutic strategy for lessening the impact of inflammation on oxidative stress.”

CBD For Sickle Cell Anaemia

Inherited from an individual’s parents, Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) is a collection of disorders of the blood and occurs in chromosome 11. Sickle Cell Anaemia is the most common form of this medical disorder. The victims of these disorders generally experience a great deal of pain.

The care of individuals with SCD includes treatment with antibiotics, vaccines, and folic acid. Some victims of this condition can be cured with bone marrow transplants.

The article below describes the process that was used to determine that cannabinoids were found to alleviate pain in mice expressing human sickle hemoglobin…

View the study here: “Pain-related behaviors and neurochemical alterations in mice expressing sickle hemoglobin: modulation by cannabinoids.”

CBD For Skin Conditions

The largest organ of the body is the skin, and the hair follicles of the skin contain enormous amounts of the endocannabinoid receptor known as CB1. Because of this fact, there is a great deal of new speculation about many potential therapeutic options that may be available in the future.

View the study here: “The endocannabinoid system of the skin in health and disease: novel perspectives and therapeutic opportunities.”

CBD For Spinal Cord Injury

This is when the spinal cord is damaged. There are several complications that may arise from this, including infection and muscle atrophy. This sort of damage is generally brought about by physical injury, and this includes gunshots, sports injuries, or car accidents. It is also interesting to note that spinal cord injury may be caused by various tumors and infections.

There is great news for the victims of spinal cord damage, and that is that cannabidiol has been found to exhibit neuroprotective effects when there is injury to the brain. In addition, the study below examines if CBD is capable of improving this sort of damage when occurs in the spinal cord. The findings were positive and that means that CBD might be helpful in assisting with the treatment of lesions to the spinal cord.

View the study here: “Cannabidiol-treated rats exhibited higher motor score after cryogenic spinal cord injury.”

CBD For Acne

Acne vulgaris is a disorder of the skin. It occurs when there is oil and dead skin clogging an individual’s hair follicles. There are three main kinds of acne, and they are whiteheads, pimples, and blackheads. This disease generally manifests itself on the back, chest, and face. This is because these regions of the skin contain a high number of oil glands.

Four out of five cases are thought to occur because of genetics; however, the increase of testosterone during puberty often plays a role in causing this condition as well.

This medical condition is treated by retinoids and antibiotics. Other treatments include salicylic acid, azelaic acid, and benzoyl peroxide. In order to alleviate the long-term effects, treatment is often administered as soon as possible.

Fortunately, as the article below indicates, CBD promises to be an effective alternative for fighting this disease because it is anti-inflammatory. Interestingly enough, cannabidiol also has lipostatic and antiproliferative qualities as well.

View the study here: “Cannabidiol exerts sebostatic and antiinflammatory effects on human sebocytes.”

CBD For AIDS

AIDS is an acronym for acquired immune deficiency syndrome. This medical disease is caused by the infection of the human immunodeficiency virus, also known as HIV. It interferes with the immune system.

It is spread with shared hypodermic needles, contaminated blood transfusion, and unprotected sexual activities.

Although there is no cure, the disorder can be slowed down with antiretroviral treatment, and this sometimes leads to the victim being able to have a normal lifespan.

The disease has resulted in millions of deaths all over the world; it is considered to be a pandemic. In addition, this disease causes many individuals to get wasting syndrome, which is a disorder that causes fat and muscle tissue to be lost.

Fortunately, there may be new treatments for wasting syndrome induced by AIDS/HIV. The article below states, “In human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) patients, cannabinoids were superior to placebo for weight gain and appetite.” This would suggest that CBD might be a potential form of treatment.

View the study here: “Systematic review and meta-analysis of cannabinoids in palliative medicine.”

CBD For Alzheimer’s Disease

Also referred to as AD or Alzheimer’s, this condition is a disease that causes neurodegeneration and gradually causes its victims to lose their bodily functions. It ultimately causes death. Most victims only live a few years after it has been correctly diagnosed.

In addition, AD is associated with oxidative stress. According to the following article, CBD is responsible for both anti-oxidative and neuroprotective effects. This could lead to the use of cannabinoids as a treatment for the oxidative stress associated with Alzheimer’s.

View the study here: “Neuroprotective effect of cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive component from Cannabis sativa, on beta-amyloid-induced toxicity in PC12 cells.”

CBD For Anxiety

Anxiety is a state of mental turmoil and is often characterized by many types of nervous behaviors. This condition is often associated with panic disorder, irritable bowel syndrome, and obsessive compulsive behavior.

Fortunately, CBD might provide some exciting new therapies that could make things better for a lot of people.

The article below suggests that CBD showed antidepressive effects in a wide array of studies. This is very good news for those suffering with this horrible condition.

View the study here: “Antidepressant-like and anxiolytic-like effects of cannabidiol: a chemical compound of Cannabis sativa.”

CBD For Asthma

This medical disorder causes the lungs to be inflamed. Some of the major symptoms include tightness of the chest, coughing, and shortness of breath. The cause of this condition is not known but some possible explanations include both environmental and genetic elements.

Although it has no cure, new research shows that cannabidiol (also referred to as CBD) may provide some form of medical aid to those suffering with these conditions.

According to the article below, the activation of cannabinoid receptors causes bronchodilator and anti-inflammatory effects. This information seems to suggest that CBD may provide a type of therapy for this disease.

View the study here: “The role of cannabinoids in inflammatory modulation of allergic respiratory disorders, inflammatory pain and ischemic stroke.”

CBD For Autism

Autism is a condition that often causes its victims to have problems interacting socially. It affects the brain by causing an inability to process information correctly. There is no known cure at this time.

One of the main causes of this medical condition is fragile X syndrome, which is also known as FXS.

In the following article, the endocannabinoid system (ECS), a modulator of several things affected by FXS, was pharmacologically blockaded, and many of the unpleasant effects were normalized. This suggests that this interference with the endocannabinoid system might provide potential therapeutic options once the entire process is better understood.

View the study here: “Targeting the endocannabinoid system in the treatment of fragile X syndrome.”

CBD For Diabetes

Also referred to as DM, or diabetes mellitus, diabetes is a collection of disorders where victims experience high levels of blood sugar. It is caused either when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or when the body doesn’t respond correctly to the insulin in the bloodstream.

The main types of diabetes are gestational diabetes, type 1 diabetes, and type 2 diabetes. The gestational form occurs in pregnant women. Type 1 is a result of not enough insulin being produced, and type 2 occurs due to insulin resistance.

Unfortunately, diabetes causes diabetic retinopathy, which is a condition that involves neurotoxicity and blood-retinal barrier (BRB) breakdown. It is associated with inflammation and oxidative stress.

However, according to the following article, treatment with cannabidiol reduces these effects.

View the study here: “Neuroprotective and blood-retinal barrier-preserving effects of cannabidiol in experimental diabetes.”

CBD For Fibromyalgia

This condition affects the soft tissue and muscles of the body and is characterised by excessive pain. It also causes bowel problems, anxiety, sleeping problems, and increased sensitivity to light and noise. Its cause is not known at this time, although the disorder is often found in families, suggesting that genetics may be at least partially responsible.

Treatments for this condition include milnacipran, pregabalin, and duloxetine. A healthy diet and exercise are often advised as well. Opioids are sometimes employed; however, their use is highly controversial.

In the study below, endocannabinoid deficiency was examined as a way to find suitable treatment for fibromyalgia. It states that cannabinoids were able to block several of the mechanisms that caused pain in victims of this disease. This is good news for many individuals suffering with this condition.

View the study here: “Clinical endocannabinoid deficiency (CECD): can this concept explain therapeutic benefits of cannabis in migraine, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome and other treatment resistant conditions?”

CBD For Huntington’s Disease

A disorder that destroys cells of the brain. Approximately 90% of alI cases are inherited and are characterized by an individual’s mental abilities and body movements having problems.

No cure is known, and the disease eventually requires its patients to have full-time care.

Fortunately, according to the following article, botanical extracts combined with Delta 9-THC or cannabidiol were found to have neuroprotective effects that delayed the progression of this disease. This is wonderful news for victims of this disorder because there seem to be a lot of problems managing this disease with the current forms of treatment.

View the study here: “Neuroprotective effects of phytocannabinoid-based medicines in experimental models of Huntington’s disease.”

CBD For Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Irritable bowel syndrome is a collection of symptoms in the bowels and abdomen; however, it does not seem to cause any sort of damage to these areas. Constipation and diarrhea are usually part of this syndrome, which can be defined as a gastrointestinal disorder.

It is not certain what the causes of this medical condition might be, although neurotransmitters, intestinal infections, and disorders of the gut-brain axis are speculated to be culprits. It is known that onset may be the result of intestinal infection.

This disorder has no cure but does have several treatment options that include laxatives, probiotics, and alterations in a victim’s diet.

The good news is that CBD might provide a promising new therapy for this troublesome disorder. Considering the nature of the difficulties associated with IBS, these new options promise the hope of relief for those suffering with this disease.

View the study here: “Cannabidiol in inflammatory bowel diseases: a brief overview.”

CBD For Migraines

A migraine is a medical disorder that is identified by frequent headaches. Other symptoms of this condition include vomiting and nausea. It is thought the cause of this disorder may have something to do with the blood vessels and nerves of the brain.

Treatment options include acetaminophen and ibuprofen. There are also several medications used to prevent such attacks, including valproate and metoprolol.

However, there is new hope for victims of this condition. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is involved with many of the functions that deal with the pain processing faculties of the body. Although the mechanisms are not completely understood, the activation of the ECS could very well provide a new type of therapy for pain that occurs with migraine headaches.

View the study here: “The endocannabinoid system and migraine.”

CBD For Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

The nerves in the spinal cord and brain are damaged when an individual has multiple sclerosis (MS). The nervous system then has trouble communicating correctly, and this leads to many problems, which include coordination problems, muscle weakness, and double vision.

It is speculated by the medical community that this disease is caused by either the myelin-producing cells failing or the immune system destroying myelin, which is a substance surrounding the axon of certain nerve cells. This condition has no cure, and the current forms of treatment have been deemed to be inadequate by a lot of people seeking relief. That is why there are a large number of new treatments for this condition under development right now.

However, CBD has been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects when used as a treatment for multiple sclerosis and even has protective effects when administered during the time of infection.

View the study here: “Cannabidiol provides long-lasting protection against the deleterious effects of inflammation in a viral model of multiple sclerosis: a role for A2A receptors.”

CBD For Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Post-traumatic stress disorder (also known as PTSD) develops after exposure to trauma. Individuals with this mental disorder are usually at an above average risk for suicide.

There is a lot of evidence that suggests that cannabinoids play a role with modulating a person’s response to the various factors that cause stress.

The article below states that the interaction between the glucocorticoid system and the endocannabinoid system is an important factor for modulating trauma.

View the study here: “Cannabinoids and traumatic stress modulation of contextual fear extinction and GR expression in the amygdala-hippocampal-pre-frontal circuit.”

CBD For Schizophrenia

This psychotic disorder is accompanied by a very long list of mental health problems. It is treated with counseling, medication, and rehabilitation.

Fortunately, CBD promises to provide an alternative form of treatment for this condition. In the article below, it is stated that cannabidiol promises to be an effective new way to treat many types of psychosis, including schizophrenia.

View the study here: “Cannabidiol as a potential treatment for psychosis.”

CBD For Stress

When an organism responds to certain environmental conditions, including challenges and threats, this response is usually referred to as stress. This condition can be anywhere from mild to severe, and many use the terms acute and chronic when describing the major forms of this condition.

In the following article, it is stated that cannabinoids are capable of preventing the harmful effects that acute stress has on an individual’s memory and their ability to learn.

View the study here: “Cannabinoids ameliorate impairments induced by chronic stress to synaptic plasticity and short-term memory.”

CBD For Addiction

This is a disorder of the brain and its reward system. There are several kinds of addiction, and they include alcohol, sexual, drug, and gambling addictions. To put it simply, addiction favors immediate gratification over long-term senseability.

There are now several studies that state that CBD might play a role with many addictions that involve substance abuse, such as cocaine, tobacco, alcohol, cannabis, and opioid addictions.

View the study here: “Cannabidiol as an Intervention for Addictive Behaviors: A Systematic Review of the Evidence.”

CBD For Atherosclerosis

The collection of plaque in an artery may cause narrowing, and this is known as atherosclerosis. This affects the blood flow to several regions of the anatomy. This disease does not usually affect individuals until they are middle aged, and its cause in unknown.

An unhealthy diet, lack of exercise, being overweight, and smoking increase the risk of getting this medical condition. Atherosclerosis is the leading cause of death in the world.

When a person’s glucose level is high, atherosclerosis is able to develop and progress. Fortunately, CBD has an immunomodulating effect that slows down this process, but it has a low binding potency, which is why treatment with cannabidiol is used as an adjuvant therapy instead of being used as a primary treatment.

View the study here: “The potential use of cannabidiol in the therapy of metabolic syndrome.”

CBD For Arthritis

Most types of disorders that affect the joints are classified as being some kind of arthritis. Swelling, stiffness and pain usually accompany this medical condition. Rheumatoid arthritis is one of the most common types of this degenerative disease. Other kinds include lupus, fibromyalgia, gout, and osteoarthritis.

Another kind of arthritis is collagen-induced arthritis, which is also referred to as CIA. In the following article, cannabidiol was administered as a treatment for CIA and was found to have anti-arthritic effects because of its anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive properties.

View the study here: “The nonpsychoactive cannabis constituent cannabidiol is an oral anti-arthritic therapeutic in murine collagen-induced arthritis.”

CBD For Bipolar Disorder

This disorder of the mind causes its victims to have elevated mood and depression. It is often accompanied by ADHD, hyperactivity, anxiety, and substance abuse.

Antipsychotics and psychotherapy are some of the more common treatments for this mental condition, which is also commonly referred to as manic depression.

Treatment with prescription drugs is not a very effective way of dealing with this problem. However, according to the article below, some patients claim that cannabis provides a successful treatment and is taken for either the mania or the depression caused by bipolar disorder.

View the study here: “Cannabinoids in bipolar affective disorder: a review and discussion of their therapeutic potential.”

CBD For Cancer

Cell growth that is not considered to be normal in the human body is the primary underlying feature of cancer, which is a collection of medical diseases. There are lots of conditions classified with this term.

Surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy are the most popular forms of treatment for cancer, and it is speculated that almost 100 million people worldwide suffer from this condition.

For the past several years, there has been substantial evidence that delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol is capable of counteracting formations of new tumors. However, its use as treatment has often been shunned because of its psychoactive effects. As a result of these unwanted effects, cannabidiol is being examined as a possible alternative for this treatment because it does not possess psychoactive properties.

The following medical review explores these new options for treatment…

View the study here: “Cannabidiol as potential anticancer drug.”

CBD For Depression

This condition may be defined as an individual’s mood being lower than normal, and it sometimes accompanies other disorders like dysthymia. Individuals suffering from this mental condition often possess a strong aversion to activity, and it is often treated with antidepressants.

Some evidence has shown that depression may be regulated by the endocannabinoid system. Because of this, this system is now thought to be a target for further study.

In the following article, there a findings that suggest that new treatment may be possible with agents that inhibit the uptake of endocannabinoids…

View the study here: The therapeutic potential of the endocannabinoid system for the development of a novel class of antidepressants.”

CBD For Epilepsy and Seizures

The term epilepsy can be defined as a collection of medical conditions identified by an individual having seizures resulting from a large amount of uncommon neuronal activity. The causes for these conditions are unknown.

However, there are many new options that involve the endocannabinoid system. The following study states that the development of treatments that involve the cellular uptake and the metabolism of endocannabinoids because they produce effects that are anxiolytic when their neurotransmissions are facilitated. 

View the study here: “Cannabidiol: pharmacology and potential therapeutic role in epilepsy and other neuropsychiatric disorders.”

CBD For Heart Disease

Also referred to as cardiovascular disease, CVD is a group of severe medical disorders, including cardiomyopathy and stroke. A large percentage of these disorders are preventable.

Poor diet and lack of exercise are some of the reasons these diseases occur. In addition, smoking and alcohol consumption are also implicated as guilty culprits in the development of these medical conditions.

One kind of heart disease may be classified as being ischemic, which means there is a reduction in the flow of blood. This is also called coronary heart disease.

According to the following study, CBD may be able to facilitate new treatments because it has been shown to have cardioprotective effects…

View the study here: “Cannabidiol, a nonpsychoactive Cannabis constituent, protects against myocardial ischemic reperfusion injury.”

CBD For Inflammation

When the tissues of the body respond to harmful things, a protective response known as inflammation occurs, and its purpose is to clear out damaged tissue and dead cells. It causes tissue repair to begin and is closely monitored by the body. Not enough inflammation could lead to the destruction of tissue and put the organism’s life at risk.

Inflammation may be chronic or acute.

In the following article, cannabidiol is found to have a strong potential for treatment for a wide array of disorders associated with oxidative stress. These include depression, neuropathic pain, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, hypertension, atherosclerosis, and Alzheimer disease.

View the study here: “Cannabidiol as an emergent therapeutic strategy for lessening the impact of inflammation on oxidative stress.”

CBD For Kidney Disease

Also referred as nephropathy, kidney disease is a disorder of the kidneys, and treatment options include kidney transplants or dialysis.

Cisplatin chemotherapy is used to treat certain malignancies; however, nephrotoxicity (damage to the kidneys) is a complication of this procedure, and it involves oxidative stress.

However, in the article below, it was found that CBD might be able to be protective against oxidative stress.

View the study here: “Cannabidiol attenuates cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity by decreasing oxidative/nitrosative stress, inflammation, and cell death.”

CBD For Liver Disease

There numerous types of liver disease and also many symptoms, including weight loss and jaundice. One kind of liver disease is hepatic encephalopathy, which is neuropsychiatric in nature and characterised by chronic liver failure.

In the article below, CBD was used to treat this type of liver disorder and was found to restore liver function. Therefore, cannabidiol promises to be a valid alternative treatment for this particular medical condition.

View the study here: “Cannabidiol improves brain and liver function in a fulminant hepatic failure-induced model of hepatic encephalopathy in mice.”

CBD For Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

This mental condition is characterized by individuals performing ritualistic behaviors repeatedly to the extent that their quality of life is affected in a negative manner.

The cause of this disease in unknown; however, because this disease often affects identical twins, it is thought that at least some of the underlying causes are genetic. Some the current treatment options involve the use of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs).

The following article states that obsessive-compulsive behavior was inhibited when treated with CBD. This is amazing news for individuals suffering from this condition.

View the study here: “Plasma and brain pharmacokinetic profile of cannabidiol (CBD), cannabidivarine (CBDV), Delta9-tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) and cannabigerol (CBG) in rats and mice following oral and intraperitoneal administration and CBD action on obsessive-compulsive behaviour.”

CBD For Parkinson’s Disease

This medical condition is a degenerative disorder of the nerves, and it affects an individual’s motor system. Its symptoms include difficulty with walking and movement, anxiety, depression, and dementia. As of now, there is not any sort of cure for PD.

Michael J. Fox has this disease. He is a famous actor and celebrity, and his battle with this condition has been widely publicized.

Interestingly enough, according to the article below, CBD could provide promising new treatment options for this condition. This speculation was strengthened when CBD was tested against placebos. It was found that CBD improved the quality of life for many victims of this disease.

View the study here: “Effects of cannabidiol in the treatment of patients with Parkinson’s disease: an exploratory double-blind trial.”

CBD For Stroke and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Stroke is a disease that occurs when the blood flow to an individual’s brain is not good, and cell death occurs. Hemorrhagic stroke occurs because of bleeding, and ischemic stroke is the result of blood flow not being sufficient.

The ischemic form of this heart condition is about twice as common as hemorrhagic stroke. Fortunately, for victims of ischemic stroke, there may be new treatment options that involve cannabidiol.

In the article below, it is suggested that CBD promises to be a viable alternative treatment for myopathic ischemia, which is a type of ischemic stroke that involves muscle tissue.

View the study here: “Cannabidiol, a nonpsychoactive Cannabis constituent, protects against myocardial ischemic reperfusion injury.”

Conclusion

There is now a great deal of evidence that proves that cannabidiol is an effective medication for an overwhelming number of medical conditions. Therefore, it would seem logical for those in the medical community to embrace these forms of treatment because they are effective.

As more evidence is discovered that CBD will help a tremendous amount of people who need help, it would be logical for it to be used as a legitimate treatment. In addition, there might be an enormous amount of undiscovered medical ailments that may be treated with CBD.

When one imagines the possibilities this form of treatment offers, it can be speculated that it will be employed as a valid option in an ever growing number of situations.

One might even make the bold claim that CBD will be one of the largest components found in a rather substantial percentage of the medical treatments of the future.
