Hemp Science: The Proven Benefits
When it comes to CBD, scientific research calls all the shots. Basing legal and medical decisions on what we do know has allowed Hemp Oil Extract to become an ally for medical treatments, prescribed by physicians (not only as an anti-inflammatory, plant-based pain killer).
Striking videos are available for anyone to see, of both pets and children's seizures being controlled and/or diminished by a CBD dose. The science behind them is the following: numerous studies have proven it to be effective in the treatment of children’s epilepsy syndromes like Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome (LGS) and Dravet Syndrome, which do not respond to anti seizure medications. For these, Hemp Oil Extract doesn't just "help" as a treatment aid, it becomes the treatment as it's able to reduce the number of seizures per month, and in some cases, it's able to stop them for good. Shall we revise its more common uses? As read on Harvard's Health Publishing, "CBD is commonly used to address anxiety, and for patients who suffer through the misery of insomnia, studies suggest that CBD may help with both falling asleep and staying asleep”.
Science has also backed its pain-killing properties; “a study from the European Journal of Pain showed, using an animal model, CBD applied on the skin could help lower arthritis-related pain and inflammation”. Another study demonstrated the mechanism by which CBD inhibits inflammatory and neuropathic pain, “two of the most difficult types of chronic pain to treat”.
The future of CBD research:
While the FDA approved the first ever cannabis-derived medicine in 2019 (a medicine for epilepsy syndromes) the future of CBD used as a medicine opens a new world of possibilities. From strictly regulated contents to more specific, science-backed dosing, new research about its properties in other fields like, yes, cancer, can provide new top- quality solutions and, above all, better quality of life and even survival for many.
