How to properly use CBD oil
CBD, extracted from cannabis, is a substance that does not affect the mind. As it contributes significantly to the treatment of various diseases, its use is rapidly spreading, and research in the medical field is also increasing.
In particular, the experience of side effects of pharmaceutical drugs is expanding the demand for CBD. In addition, CBD's positive pain treatment effect is also the reason why it is recommended for patients before using opioid-based narcotic pain relievers, which are highly addictive.
Of course, drug addiction is also addicted through narcotic painkillers containing opioids. This is a case of addiction after taking a doctor's prescription drug for a long time due to various pains. Though unintentionally, the addiction causes the patient to suffer life's blame and pain again, this time not from pain, but drug addiction.
In particular, physical addiction as well as psychological addiction are threatened to live. Although taking into account the reality that the prescription of narcotic analgesics has become strict, the abuse of narcotic analgesics is seriously contemplated by the US medical community and is a task to be solved.
Significantly, it has been reported that drug addiction decreased after using medical cannabis. CBD and medical cannabis oil can be used as an alternative to narcotic analgesic abuse. Furthermore, it is worth noting that CBD has a significant effect on psychotherapy, which is considered unfortunate, which is indicated by the withdrawal of narcotic analgesics.
Then, what kind of therapeutic effect does CBD have?
First, it has a great effect on various pain diseases. It is also mainly used for neurological diseases, inflammatory diseases, sleep disorders, epileptic seizures, depression, and side effects of cancer treatment (nausea, etc.).
In addition, in the case of post-traumatic stress disease (PTSD), it is applied not only to treatment but also to prevention. Israel is also the first in the world to teach cannabis cultivation and efficacy as a subject at a specific university. Recently, Pacific Oriental Medicine University in San Diego is also running a Department of Medical Cannabis. As such, it is an area that has recently emerged as a hot issue in English-speaking and Western medicine.
How to take CBD oil and precautions
- CBD oil is obtained by diluting CBD extracted from cannabis in coconut oil, hemp seed oil, MCT oil, olive oil, etc.
- Since the dosage varies depending on the CBD content of the product, it is recommended to keep the dosage stated on the product.
- Consult a professional oriental doctor about the dosage.
- Generally, it is administered under the tongue and held for 60 to 90 seconds (Sublingual: Applied under the tongue).
- The caution when taking CBD is known as a safe drug, but when using it for a long period of time or for certain diseases, consult a specialist. Rarely, dry mouth, digestive problems, low blood pressure, and mild headaches have been reported.
People with chronic anxiety are often advised to avoid cannabis as THC can cause or amplify anxiety and paranoia in some people.
However, Neurotherapeutics reviews suggest that CBD may help reduce the anxiety felt by people with certain anxiety disorders.
Researchers point to findings that CBD may reduce anxiety behavior in diseases such as:
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- General anxiety disorder
- Panic disorder
- Social anxiety disorder
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder
Reviews point out that current medications for these disorders can cause additional symptoms and side effects, and these unwanted consequences can lead people to stop taking the medication.
CBD has not shown any side effects in these cases to date, and researchers demand that CBD should be studied as a potential treatment method.
