1. Relief from Chronic Pain & Inflammation
People suffering from chronic pain resulting from fibromyalgia have experienced relief after using CBD oil. Using CBD oil has also been found to offer common pain relief and prevent the degeneration of the nervous system.

2. Calms Epilepsy
CBD has been proven to have anti-seizure properties that can successfully treat children with drug-resistant types of neurological disorders like epilepsy.

3. Anxiety & Depression
According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, depression affects 6% and anxiety affects 18% of the population in the US each year. Their research shows that CBD oil can help with both problems.

Subset areas of releif include:
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
General anxiety disorder
Panic disorder
Social anxiety disorder
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
Substance-abuse disorders

4. Reduce Oxidative Stress
Oxidative stress is a condition when the body has too many free radicals and antioxidants aren’t able to neutralize all of them. This is a comparatively recent problem these days, owing to the rising toxicity in our environment.

5. Aid Treatment of Heart Ailments
Heart disease is also a growing problem across the world. In fact, it’s one of the leading causes of death in the United States. A healthy diet and lifestyle is a top priority for such people, but CBD oil can also help.

According to researchers, cannabidiol helps by:
Reducing artery blockage
Reducing stress-induced cardiovascular response
Reducing blood pressure
Reducing cholesterol level

6. Fights Multi-Drug Resistant Bacteria
According to many experts, cannabinoids (including CBD) have an unusual ability to destroy bacteria (especially the drug-resistant strains). While more research is still needed to understand how and why it works, according to a 2011 study, CBD can slow down the progression of tuberculosis in rats. Researchers concluded that CBD likely does this by inhibiting T-cell proliferation, rather than possessing antibacterial properties.

7. Treat Type 1 Diabetes
We have already discussed how CBD oil helps combat inflammation. The same is true for when the immune system attacks the pancreatic cells, causing Type 1 Diabetes.

8. Help with treating Schizophrenia
Schizophrenia is a serious and complicated mental illness that is typically managed through therapy and pharmaceutical drugs (that often have severe side effects). Whereas, many people have found CBD oil helpful in reducing hallucinations, minus the side effects.

9. Treat skin conditions
CBD can do wonders for your skin with deep nourishment, by healing eczema, treating psoriasis and preventing acne. Several studies have shown that CBD oil has a high potential for treating skin conditions by encouraging abnormal cell death and regulating the skin’s oil production. 

10. Fight addiction
CBD oil may help people with addiction overcome their withdrawal symptoms, suggested a review published in the journal Substance Abuse in 2015. In their report, they analyzed 14 previously published studies in which scientists determined that CBD may have a therapeutic effect on people with opioid, cocaine, and/or psycho-stimulant addiction.

They also found that CBD may help treat those with cannabis and tobacco addiction. Researchers have found evidence of CBD blocking or sometimes reducing THC’s effect on the mind.

11. Fight certain types of Cancer
For people fighting cancer, CBD may provide them with a natural alternative for pain and symptom relief. According to the American Cancer Society, CBD oil can slow down the growth and spread of certain types of cancer (in animals), given that this psychoactive compound efficiently fights oxidative stress and inflammation.

12. Alzheimer’s Disease
CBD can prevent the development of social recognition deficit among patients, suggested research published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease. This means that CBD could help people in the early stages of Alzheimer’s retain their ability to recognize faces they know, and in turn slow the progression of the disease.

13. Improve the Life of Your Pet
CBD has been proven an effective treatment for seizures, nausea, stress, anxiety, arthritis, back pain, symptoms of cancer, and gastrointestinal issues, among other health conditions in dogs and cats.
