CBD for Arthritis
Studies have proposed that CBD has pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties. People with arthritis can suffer from joint swelling, pain, stiffness, a diminished range of motion, and chronic pain. The Arthritis Foundation conducted a poll which showed that 29% reported that they currently used CBD to help treat their arthritis.
CBD is well known to treat and manage pain. Our ECS (endocannabinoid system) aids in the regulation of appetite, sleep, pain, and more. Our naturally produced endocannabinoids are neurotransmitters that bind to receptors in our nervous system. According to one source, “CBD can help to reduce chronic pain by impacting this receptor activity, thus reducing inflammation and interacting with neurotransmitters.”
CBD has been known to reduce anxiety and promote a calming effect because it acts on the brain’s receptors for serotonin, a neurotransmitter that helps to regulate our mood. Plantworthy’s Anxiety & Stress Relief – Herbal CBD Capsules encourages you to take back your mental health and commit daily to life-changing results.
There is ongoing research into the use of CBD for heart and circulatory diseases and, in particular, diseases of the heart muscle, including myocarditis and some types of cardiomyopathy. One study concluded that CBD can reduce the cardiovascular response to various types of stress. CBD also has a protective role in reducing cardiac dysfunction and can act as a protectant in reducing ischaemic damage in models of stroke. Research in this area is still in the early stage, but it already shows great potential.
Alzheimer’s disease occurs when there is a buildup of amyloid in the brain. A few studies have shown that CBD has the ability to remove amyloid from nerve cells. Another study that gave CBD oil to mice with symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease showed an improvement in learning and had less evidence of amyloid clumps in their bodies.
Research has shown that individuals that take CBD report sleep improvements such as better sleep quality, fewer sleep disturbances, decreased time taken to fall asleep, etc. Plantworthy’s Dream Sleep – Herbal CBD Capsules have added calming adaptogens and minerals including Lavender, Valerian, Chamomile, Zinc, and CBD.
