CBD, an acronym for Cannabidiol is a chemical compound derived from particular hemp and cannabis species plants, and in recent medical studies and scientific research has gone beyond measures to prove its medicinal value. Proper and ideal CBD products are isolated from THC (psychoactive constituent of cannabis), which allows one use the product more easily and by more people with the advantage of the only its health benefits without suffering from the side effects of THC.
Before focussing on the outstanding benefits that CBD oil has been found to bring, the main benefit is that it doesn’t give one the ‘high’ feeling from THC as described above. It is non-psychoactive making it suitable for a wider array of patients who wish to use it medicinally. A study in 2011 demonstrated that THC acts on CB1 receptors, which are highly concentrated in your brain. This leads to altering your mind, which is associated with highness. Pure CBD does not affect the receptors.
Some Study-Based Benefits Associated with CBD Oil
Reduction in Cigarette/Nicotine Intake
In a controlled study, results show that continued use of CBD reduces tobacco consumption if used for one week. Participants in the study randomly chose a CBD or a placebo inhaler. They were urged to take a puff every time they needed to take a cigarette. Those with placebo inhalers saw no decrease as opposed to those who took CBD inhalers who decreased their cigarette consumption by 40% without the crave for cigarettes.
Studies using CBD have clearly shown that it can prevent diabetes in non-obese diabetic mice. The cannabidioleffect is not direct on glucose levels, but its use prevented the production of IL-12 splenocytes, which is an immune system benefit for the body.

Cannabidiol has shown significantly to reduce and stop prions, which are proteins that are responsible for causing mad cow disease. The formation and development of prions are prevented when CBD is subjected to the body of the one suffering.
Some reports show that CBD is considered to have a small side effect, which is feeling tired after usage. However, this side effect can be used beneficially in that it is a better way to induce sleep compared to pharmaceuticals that help in the same ailments as CBDs as they have been known to bring some serious dosage constraints.
Indeed, cannabinoids possess anti-proliferative and pro-apoptotic effects and they are known to interfere with tumour neovascularization, cancer cell migration, adhesion, invasion and metastasization.
