While it might seem like CBD is a new product and its benefits are just being discovered, the fact is that the hemp plant has been used in many forms throughout the history to treat several conditions. Nowadays, it is possible to isolate cannabidiol from the psychoactive components of hemp, and therefore CBD can be used safely and without secondary effects.
The main reason behind CBD’s effectiveness is its ability to balance the endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for many of the body’s crucial functions. Therefore, this natural substance can be used to treat both psychological and physiological disorders including chronic pain, anxiety, stress and inflammation. If you are suffering from any of the following conditions, a good CBD product might be everything you need:
1) Eczema and Skin Conditions
Also known as dermatitis, eczema is one of the most common skin conditions affecting millions of patients all around the world. While its exact causes have not been determined, it usually appears due to genetic and environmental factors. Its common symptoms include dry and itchy skin, as well as inflammation, redness and rashes in several parts of the body.
The most common treatments for eczema are topical salves and ultraviolet light. While antihistamines are not effective in dealing with the root causes of the disease, they are commonly used to improve the quality of sleep in patients with severe cases.
At Down to Earth, we are proud to share the success stories of eczema customers who have seen noticeable improvements using our CBD balms. For this skin condition we recommend the Repair Balm, which boosts circulation and cell regeneration while healing the three layers of the skin. Cannabidiol is effective in reducing inflammation and promoting cell regeneration, making it a great choice for almost any dermatological disorder.
2) Stress and Anxiety
These two common disorders are perhaps the most common reasons for customers to purchase CBD products. While there are pharmaceutical treatments available, they often cause undesirable secondary effects and dependence. Quality hemp extracts, however, are able to balance the endocannabinoid system and promote a general sense of calm and relaxation.
While the exact way in which cannabidiol acts in the body is still being studied, we know that it has a direct impact on CB1 receptors and is therefore able to manage the levels of serotonin in the brain. This neurotransmitter is responsible for the feelings of happiness and reward, as well as stress and anxiety. In 2011, the Journal of Psychopharmacology published an extensive report which states that cannabidiol is a viable and effective treatment for anxiety.
Down to Earth offers a wide range of products for customers suffering from any psychological disorders including stress, anxiety and depression. Our CBD oils can be taken sublingually for an easier absorption and fast effects, while the CBD-infused chocolates are the best for those who prefer to take their daily dose of cannabidiol in the form of a delicious treat.
3) Chronic Pain
The main reason for CBD’s effectiveness in dealing with chronic pain is its ability to tackle both its neurological and physical root causes. On one hand, cannabidiol balances the endocannabinoid system and is therefore able to manage the brain’s response to pain. On the other, CBD is a powerful anti-inflammatory which can alleviate the physical causes of pain.
Nowadays, thousands of customers in Australia and around the world use CBD products to suppress chronic inflammatory and neuropathic pain. This natural hemp component does not cause any of the secondary effects of pharmaceutical remedies, and it can be used without developing any dependence.
For patients suffering from chronic pain, we recommend our Full Defence 500 and Full Defence 1000 sublingual tinctures. These CO2 extracts are made from carefully selected plants and contain MCT oil or Hemp Seed oil as carriers which enhance their bioavailability and rate of absorption.
In conclusion, there are no specific products for a specific condition for all people, however there are a wide array of conditions that can be suitable to one solution. It is really finding what works for you. Comment or email us with your best experiences or ideas of what might work a treat. 😊
