Exploring Common Uses of CBD

Posted on:

Many of us experience mental and physical health challenges that can significantly impact our daily lives. While most health issues and illnesses have been traditionally addressed by a narrow range of pharmaceutical options, CBD (cannabidiol) stands out as a natural ingredient for those seeking an alternative to synthetic drugs for optimizing their health and managing a diverse range of serious symptoms and concerns.

Anxiety And Depression

Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illnesses in the United States, affecting over 40 million adults. 

CBD is commonly used to promote psychological well-being and relieve stress and symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Its anxiolytic properties offer a feeling of calm without causing impairment. Derived from hemp plants with less than 0.3% of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD is non-psychoactive and has not been found to be indicative of potential for abuse or reliance

CBD may alleviate anxiety and depression by modulating serotonergic transmission. Furthermore, studies suggest that CBD may help stabilize mood fluctuations and regulate the body’s stress response by increasing the presence of anandamide, a cannabinoid, by inhibiting its reuptake and enzymatic breakdown. 

Anxiety is a persistent daily struggle for many. Some people find that their anxiety emerges or heightens ahead of an important social event. Clinical trials have found that CBD helps to reduce symptoms of anxiety and discomfort for those with social anxiety disorder. Bottle & Stone hemp sprays are popular for those who are usually busy and on-the-go. Our concentrated daily-dose hemp spritz acts to deliver a sense of whole-body ease ahead of your next date, public appearance, or business meeting. 

Inflammation

Chronic inflammation is linked to countless diseases. Modern life is rife with persistent yet hidden sources of systemic, chronic inflammation, which is why doctors and scientists have dubbed it the “silent killer” of our time. 

CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system to enhance and modulate various processes in the human body, including the immunomodulation of inflammation. The anti-inflammatory and immunity-boosting properties of CBD make it a staple for athletes looking to ease post-workout soreness, executives seeking stress relief, entrepreneurs managing long hours, and even parents balancing busy schedules.

Sleep

The Centers For Disease Control And Prevention says that a “third of US adults report that they usually get less than the recommended amount of sleep. Not getting enough sleep is linked with many chronic diseases and conditions—such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and depression—that threaten our nation’s health.” 

CBD is commonly used to manage insomnia and sleep disorders. Its mood-boosting and balancing effects help many people feel more relaxed and less worried as they lay down to get valuable rest. CBD can help in achieving peace of mind and deeper sleep, alleviating the debilitating effects of fatigue that arise from sleep deprivation or restlessness.

Chronic Pain & Neurological Disorders

Forbes reports that 60% of U.S. adults use CBD to manage pain. Many anecdotally report that consuming CBD oil or smoking CBG provides more effective pain relief than conventional medical treatments, with more research continually underway.

A combination of THC and CBD in a 1:1 ratio is currently undergoing trials for approval in the United States (and has already been approved by Health Canada for prescription) for central neuropathic pain in multiple sclerosis and the treatment of cancer pain. 

One of the most widely recognized therapeutic uses of CBD is for managing epilepsy and seizures. Epidiolex is a medication with CBD that has been approved in the United States by the FDA for rare forms of epilepsy. The medication has been shown in clinical trials to reduce the frequency and intensity of seizures of epilepsy.

Preclinical studies of CBD show promise of alleviating chronic back pain, arthritis, and migraines. Furthermore, early research has found that CBD as well as CBG, a precursor of CBD, may slow the progression of neurodegenerative diseases, protecting neurons from oxidative stress, inflammation, and excitatory toxicity. Patients of Parkinson's, Huntington’s, or Alzheimer’s disease may find relief with CBD in response to neurological symptoms of chronic pain. 

CBD For You

CBD is nature’s supplement to holistically manage several different health challenges. Before consuming CBD, consult with a healthcare professional and ask about the right dose for you, especially if you have underlying health concerns or currently take other medications. 

CBD oil can be taken sublingually, or seamlessly blended into recipes for teas, smoothies, juices, desserts, salad dressings, and more. Bottle & Stone CBD oil tinctures are full-spectrum, single-origin, USA certified organic, and third-party lab-tested, empowering you to thrive naturally in your own unique wellness journey.
