The use of CBD is constantly growing in popularity, and this powerful herbal extract has shown many benefits in many areas of both physical and mental health.
Chronic pain management
Chronic pain can result from a number of things; the reason for this may be an illness, an old sports injury, or simply old age. Often the source of pain is inflammation in the body, usually in a joint or tissue. Whatever its cause, chronic pain can be debilitating and cause not only physical but also emotional and mental consequences.
With the help of CBD, chronic pain can now be managed in a natural and healthy way. CBD interacts with the body's endocannabinoid system (ECS), which helps regulate certain functions such as sleep, immune system responses, and pain. CBD has been shown to inhibit neuropathic pain. This means that it has the ability to inhibit the neural transmissions that travel through the body's pain pathway, and it is this inhibition that helps curb the effects of pain in the body. In addition, CBD helps reduce inflammation in the body, which in turn can reduce the effects of chronic pain.
Lower blood pressure and improve heart health
Heart related problems are one of the major problems affecting men's health today. For example, heart disease is the leading cause of death for men in the United States. Men have a high risk of susceptibility to heart diseases such as heart attacks, high blood pressure and stroke. CBD has the ability to lower high blood pressure, which is one of the main causes of stroke and heart attacks. In 2017, a randomized crossover study found that a single dose of CBD lowered blood pressure in healthy male subjects. In addition to lowering high blood pressure, studies have shown that the antioxidant properties of CBD can reduce inflammation in the heart and may prevent cell death that is caused by oxidative stress.
Improvements and regulation of sleep
Sleep is an integral part of our health. If we don't get an average of 6-8 hours of sleep each night, we run the risk of being irritable the next day and not performing to our optimal potential. Getting the right amount of sleep is important in order to help our bodies rejuvenate, reduce the risk of heart disease, improve concentration, and help us maintain a normal weight.
Some research suggests that CBD may help with common sleep disorders such as insomnia and help regulate our sleep patterns to improve overall sleep quality. Just as it interacts with our ECS to reduce pain, CBD triggers specific receptors in the body that govern our sleep-wake cycle.
However, the main reason why CBD is beneficial for sleep is that it alleviates conditions that delay and disrupt sleep. In particular, stress, anxiety and pain. Because CBD can help calm our minds from disturbing thoughts and help us feel more relaxed, it can help people with sleep disorders fall asleep faster and sleep longer.
