What is CBD? Before we can look into the health benefits that come along with the daily intake of CBD, we can first take a moment to discuss its meaning. Well, CBD is a short form that stands for Cannaboid which is an oil-based substance found mostly in plants such as cannabis or hemp plants and is used as a drug. Due to its natural form (being plant-based), it is currently available in different forms such as capsules, tinctures, food items, oil-based for vaporizers, and even in beauty products like lotions and bath bombs.
Having stated that, in this article, however, we are going to discuss the impacts on health for the Daily CBD Intake Health Benefits. Research has proven that consumption of this product has neither intoxicative nor psychoactive effects on its consumers. It has also provided insights about the usage of this drug and the impact on treatment of different conditions such as anxiety, epilepsy, migraines, autoimmune diseases, inflammation, chronic pains, and even depression.
Though its potentiality in treating these diseases has not been 100% proven, research into the full potential of this drug is ongoing and researchers are working around the clock to come up with appropriate answers to many questions being asked about the drug. However, the daily usage of the drug has proven that its consumption has been impactful when it comes to treatment of diseases such as epilepsy and there are promising results regarding the various anxiety related disorders.
For example, in 2018, the first drug which contained CBD was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of two different epileptic diseases (Dravet Syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome). The drug name was Cannabidiol or Epidiolex and is approved for usage by patients as young as two years old. The drug proved to be very efficient in minimizing seizures among the patients.
When it comes to the treatment of anxiety disorders, research is yet to conclude whether this drug can actually treat patients with this disease. However, though, in 2015 a medical research journal looked into the effects of using this drug on patients with multiple anxiety related disorders such as generalized anxiety disorder, seasonal affective disorder, panic disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder and as a result the research suggested that there is a strong preclinical evidence that supports the use of this drug for the treatment of such anxiety disorders.
Bottom line surrounding the daily CBD intake health benefits is not yet fully clear since there are still many unanswered questions by the scientists including the health risks that comes as a result of consuming this drug and its efficiency. Also, the side effects that the drug may have on a patient are still unclear. There are some few side effects that have been noticed on some of the patients though and they include:
Damaged liver – during its trials, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) noticed that the use of this drug may damage the patient’s liver and therefore recommended that it be consumed strictly under the guidelines of a doctor.
Interfering with other drugs – the use of this drug can adversely affect the efficiency and performance of other drugs the patient is taking and therefore before using this drug one has to have a re-evaluation of drug dosage done by your doctor. Due to this interference, this drug can cause serious side effects to the patient.
