In the last four years, CBD has gained widespread attention at a greater scale than ever before. Its sudden surge in popularity prompted scientists and universities alike to begin conducting CBD research. Majority of the recent CBD scientific literature has been performed with animals and functions as only preliminary research, however, the results are promising.
Helps to support healthy inflammatory function
CBD's ability to support healthy inflammatory function is perhaps its most exciting benefit, with the potential ability to mitigate the painful symptoms of countless human discomforts. For this reason, numerous studies have been performed to examine CBD's effect on inflammation, and though these studies have been primarily performed with animals, the results are promising.
Provides support for focus & clarity
CBD has been shown to interact with the body's dopamine receptors. Dopamine is a chemical neurotransmitter that plays an important role in regulating our behavior, including: memory, focus, motivation, and mental attention.
Helps to relieve pain
With the danger of addiction looming over prescription pain relievers, it's no wonder that people are looking for a more natural, less-habit forming relief. In a recent animal study, scientists found that CBD may interact with our body's serotonin receptors, which is believed to be the reason that CBD could encourage greater pain management.
Helps to support a healthy sleep cycle
There are many things that contribute to tossing and turning at night, including: stress, unrest, and physical pain. In 2019, The Permanente Journal performed a study in which they gave 72 people sleep issues just 25mg of CBD each day. Within just one month, 66.7% reported better sleep.
Helps to promote a calm mood
Stress hormones help to trigger our body's "fight or flight" response, but in the hustle and bustle of today's world, these hormones are often over-triggered, leaving us overwhelmed. In a recent literature review, Neurotherapeutics compared 32 different animal based studies, and 31 of the 32 found CBD to have a potential positive effect on stress.
