Unique Facts About CBD

CBD is not necessarily the cure-all for any and every ailment, but studies show that there are many avenues that are positively affected by CBD and its interaction with the body. The more we learn about and observe research studies, the more unique findings arise, to discover additional uses for CBD.



CONCENTRATION

The ability to focus and tackle each presented task is a goal for anyone working a 9-5, running a business, or attending school at any level. This highly coveted skill can generally be managed with prescription medication, but studies suggest that CBD could be the natural solution.

According to CORE CBD, “Overload kills productivity. As our brains seek to process information and make use of it, it can get to be a bit too much. Users report CBD gives them a calmer demeanor that helps keep their head “less busy.” Far from slowing the processing of information, this helps them slow down and better prioritize tasks. This is a net increase in productivity, and CBD oil helps them make it happen.”

In other words, CBD may help one cut the chatter to focus on the task at hand. Calming the mind is essential, especially when the work load is excessive. If you are able to consistently cross off items on the to-do list, you will become more productive over time.



BLOOD PRESSURE LEVELS

In today’s society, stress levels can be so high that it increases blood pressure levels, which can lead to additional problems. Elevated levels put more stress on the body, and more specifically the heart and blood vessels. This in turn can lead to a heart attack or stroke if blood pressure remains high for an extended amount of time. In lieu of using medication to control blood pressure, CBD may be the perfect solution without adding any additional side effects. According to the Daily Marijuana Observer, “In a study published by the American Society for Clinical Investigation, researchers gave nine healthy male volunteers a 600 mg dose of CBD or placebo in a randomized double-blind study. When the researchers gave the men stress tests that would usually result in heightened blood pressure levels, they found that those given CBD had lower than normal rises in blood pressure. They also concluded that CBD may play a role in reducing your resting blood pressure levels.”  

Since high blood pressure is such a prevalent medical concern, this study is promising, suggesting that CBD is a natural solution. The CDC reports that 45% of Americans have hypertension or high blood pressure. This number is alarming, but there is hope to consider using CBD as a option to maintain healthy levels.

SKIN TREATMENT

Let’s not forget about the outward effects of CBD. Recent studies have shown that CBD use on your skin can be just as effective as when ingested. The American Academy of Dermatology found that CBD applied on the skin can help treat conditions like acne, eczema, and psoriasis. Studies show that the anti-inflammatory properties found in CBD could have calming effects on the skin, as a natural means to treat minor irritation.
