General use of CBD has been controversial for years, but studies have recently shown that the cannabinoid may offer more health benefits than previously noted. At Commonwealth Extracts, we’ve seen these benefits first-hand, and we’re passionate about spreading this versatile solution by offering the highest quality CBD extracts. CBD interacts with our bodies’ natural endocannabinoid system; a system that helps regulate sleep, appetite, pain, and our immune systems. Unlike THC (a popular cannabinoid found in the marijuana plant), CBD doesn’t interact with the same receptors to create a “high,” but instead offers natural, positive effects.
To begin with, CBD has been found to be highly effective in treating pain. Whether the pain is topical or caused by a diagnosis such as multiple sclerosis or arthritis, CBD products may be worth a try due to their pain-relieving effects without changing your mental state. These products in general also have significantly fewer side effects than opioids or anti-inflammatory drugs. For this reason, our topical solutions as well as CBD tinctures or other extracts may actually be the best pain solution for your customers or for yourself.
In addition to pain relief, CBD has also proven to have significant health benefits from ailments from acne to cancer-related side effects. CBD oil has anti-inflammatory properties in addition to being able to regulate the production of sebum, which is the oily secretion responsible for many breakouts. On a larger scale, CBD may also be able to reduce symptoms related to cancer as well as side effects of chemotherapy, which can include nausea, vomiting, or pain. While our CBD products may be able to help treat things such as acne and nausea, they aren’t replacements for conventional, research-based cancer treatment methods.
While CBD can help greatly with physical illness, it can also be an excellent resource for mental health patients. Specifically, CBD has been known to both reduce anxiety and treat insomnia, PTSD, and depression. In several studies, the cannabinoid has been proven to interact with serotonin receptors and help to regulate natural mood and social behaviors. CBD is also void of many negative side effects associated with typical pharmaceutical drugs used for treatment, which can even include addiction.
CBD is now recognized a valuable asset for skin care as well as physical and mental health treatment, but the only way to figure out what works best for you is to research and experiment. Whether you decide to check out our tinctures, distillates, or isolates, Commonwealth Extracts is excited to be a part of your CBD journey.
