It has been branded as a miracle product that can fix all of your problems, even your Klarna payments! Okay, maybe not that. It has been reported that CBD can be a handy little tool to have in your bathroom cupboard. However, we want to remove the fact from the fiction and demystify those famous ‘benefits’.
We make no medical claims about the effects of CBD and encourage you to do your own research into CBD products from a range of sources.
Fibromyalgia, endometriosis and even menstruation cramps have been reported to improve with CBD. As previously mentioned, the increase of cannabinoids in the body helps tackle inflammation-causing cells, meaning aches and pains can be greatly reduced. Moreover, CBD can be taken in a spray, drop or balm form, meaning it’s all completely under your control.
But isn’t some CBD a bit dodgy? Unfortunately, because CBD is incredibly popular some brands will say it’s CBD, when it just isn’t. However, we here at BeYou have our products tested externally, and for peace of mind, you can even check the results for your product on our website’s Batch Test page.
As we mentioned above, those of us who may have anxiety can feel the benefits of CBD. In a small study carried out in 2010, participants who had been diagnosed with anxiety were treated with cannabidiol and found a reduction in their anxiety. Moreover, researchers conducted brain scans on the participants found that blood flows to the regions of the brain thought to cause anxiety, had changed.
The endocannabinoid system, or ECS, is responsible for achieving homeostasis. Homeostasis is just a fancy word for ‘balance’, meaning it makes sure your bodily systems are in harmony within one another. Any kind of imbalances which can cause insomnia or poor sleep have been reported to improve with the introduction of more cannabinoids. Who doesn’t want a bit more shut-eye?!
4. “Is CBD safe in skincare products?”
Many beauty brands have launched their own CBD skincare range over the past year, but does it actually work? CBD has been claimed to be naturally anti-inflammatory and can calm down the parts of your body that seem to be out of whack, including your skin. CBD has been used by many women to not only clear their skin of any blemishes but also combat very sensitive skin, signs of ageing. Sign us up for amazing skin, please!
In 2018, medical marijuana and CBD were introduced on to the NHS to help children and adults who suffer specific and severe types of epilepsy. According to Epilepsy Action, recent evidence has shown that that one in every 8 people taking CBD would have a 50% or greater reduction in seizure and an even small percentage could be seizure-free.
