In recent years, CBD has been hailed as one of the most beneficial herbs on the market. Now available in gummies, topical creams, and essential oils, the health benefits of CBD are far-reaching.
CBD is a cannabinoid that interacts with the body’s natural endocannabinoid system, providing natural support without the psychoactive effects of THC.
Are you curious about specific ways that CBD can support a healthy lifestyle?
Keep reading to learn how CBD interacts with your body’s natural systems and ways it may improve your life.
Health Benefits of CBD
It’s important to note that as of this writing, the FDA has approved only one CBD product for medical use. The approved product treats two rare forms of epilepsy.
That’s not to say that the other amazing health benefits of cannabinoids should go unnoticed. While CBD products can’t treat or mitigate specific ailments, they can help support and promote overall health.
Here are a few of the most notable health benefits of CBD.
Supports Stress Management
CBD promotes relaxation and may elicit feelings of calm and happiness by increasing serotonin levels.
Studies show that CBD activates the body’s serotonin receptors — also known as 5-HT1A. This interaction helps reduce stress while increasing happiness.
CBD also interacts with the body’s natural endocannabinoid system, which plays an essential role in regulating the hormones that control cortisol levels. Cortisol is the main stress hormone in the human body.
Promotes a Better Night’s Sleep
Restless nights can be categorized as trouble falling or staying asleep and affects 1 in 4 people.
Countless factors can negatively impact sleep from poor diet and sleep habits to stress.
Melatonin is the hormone that your body releases in preparation for sleep. CBD may help raise the body’s naturally occurring levels of this sleep-inducing hormone.
Keep in mind that certain doses of CBD oil can actually cause feelings of alertness, which will have the opposite desired effect.
It’s recommended you try CBD essential oils prior to bedtime to determine your body’s specific reaction.
Supports Healthy Digestion
People refer to a healthy gastrointestinal system as “gut health”. Probiotics, exercise, and a healthy diet all support a happy, healthy “gut”.
But what role might CBD play in supporting your digestive system?
Your body’s natural endocannabinoid production and renewal are important for maintaining healthy levels of good bacteria in the bowels. When endocannabinoid levels are low, complications like IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) and celiac disease can occur.
CBD can help regulate and control endocannabinoid levels in the body and, in turn, promote a healthy functioning digestive system.
