How CBD May Help with Your Well-Being

How CBD May Help with Your Well-Being

It’s pretty obvious that we love a little cannabinoid called cannabidiol, which is commonly shortened to “CBD.” There are many claims out there about what CBD supposedly can do for your health, but the reality is that the research isn’t there to make these big claims.

With this being said, many people have found that the cannabinoid has provided them relief, both physically and mentally, as well as improved their overall wellbeing. One of the most beautiful things about our endocannabinoid system is that it allows us to interact with these plant cannabinoids, such as CBD, through receptors such as CB1 and CB2. For more information on the endocannabinoid system, check out our explanation of it here.

Each of our endocannabinoid systems are unique, which means that we respond to plant cannabinoids differently. In this article, we are going to cover some ways that CBD may help to enhance your overall well being, but we recommend seeking out a medical professional before incorporating it into your daily routine as we cannot legally make any claims regarding CBD and its potential benefits.

What Actually is CBD?

Like we mentioned before, CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of the many cannabinoids found in the Cannabis sativa plant. Unlike THC-D9, CBD is non-psychoactive. This means that by ingesting or taking CBD topically, you will not get the sensation of being “high,” which you will get by ingesting THC-D9. We recently covered CBD more in depth if you would like more information on the cannabinoid.

CBD May Help with Improving Your Skin

Here at Eossi Beauty, we personally love having CBD as a part of our skincare routine so much so that we made it the star ingredient in our Facial Glow Oil. Although there hasn’t been much research on CBD skincare, many people have found lasting success by incorporating the cannabinoid into their skincare routine. Some studies have shown that CBD may be able to help with skin concerns such as dryness, inflammation, and free radical damage due to the cannabinoid’s possible anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. There was also a study published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation that showed CBD may be effective in treating acne, as it was shown to reduce the production of sebum in the skin. We also have a more in-depth blog post on CBD skincare, if you would like to check that out as well!

CBD May Help Reduce Chronic Pain

It’s not a surprise that many people deal with chronic pain everyday, and many people want a more natural alternative to common pain prescriptions, such as opioids. Some of the most common areas people experience chronic pain in are:

  • Lower back
  • Neck
  • Shoulders
  • Hips
  • Knees

Another type of chronic pain that some people experience are headaches and migraines. Many people with chronic pain are unable to do some of the things they want to due to their pain. Although CBD has not been well-researched in the Western scientific community, many people have found relief from their chronic pain through the use of CBD either topically or through ingestion. A common way to relieve pain in a specific area is through the use of body butters or other topical ointments that contain CBD. People may also opt to use tinctures instead, which you can easily drop into your favorite beverage.

CBD May Help Reduce Stress, Anxiety, and Depression

We have mentioned several times through this article that CBD is not very well studied, but despite this many people opt to use CBD over other methods or medicines to help manage their stress, anxiety, or depression. Many people experience a calming feeling when taking CBD, specifically through tinctures. According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, anxiety disorders are the most common mental health disorder in the U.S., affecting 18.1% of the adult population. Although CBD is not recommended as a replacement for any anxiety or depression medications, it may be a good supplement. As always, we recommend consulting with a medical professional before adding anything to your everyday routine.
