The following is a short summary of one woman’s (Leah Vanderveldt) thirty days on CBD oil, and why she loved it! Some of it is education about CBD, and some of it is very subjective. The article starts off by stating that CBD is non-psychoactive and potentially has many positive impacts on health. After pointing out that the US Government has a patent on CBD as a neuroprotectant and antioxidant, it stated:
“”Clinical reports showing its safety and tolerability allow us to move forward with confidence,” says Anjali Dsouza, M.D., of the District Center for Integrative Medicine. “We have long known that, in certain circumstances, cannabinoids like CBD can help achieve and support a stable balance in our bodies, also known as homeostasis. CBD is currently used in a wide range of clinical scenarios including cancer, multiple sclerosis, seizure disorders, traumatic brain injuries, insomnia, anxiety, and PTSD.””
It then discusses that we have an endocannabinoid system and how it uses CBD to reduce inflammation and pain. Dr. Dsouza then said, “I have prescribed CBD oil and my experience suggests it is generally well-tolerated. The worst side effect I have seen is sedation. As with all things, I typically start low and go slow.”
So now, how did CBD oil help Leah personally during this thirty day trial? The first thing she talks about is how bad her period pains have been in recent months. She claims that within 30 minutes of taking a CBD oil, her cramps were gone. Leah says, “The idea of having a natural product I can take to reduce pain is huge. I’ve tried heating pads, essential oils, and calming teas, but this is something that really, tangibly helps and lets me go about my day without pain.”
She claims it also helped her with anxiety. She says she struggles with anxiety, especially around crowds. However, with the CBD oil, she said her attitude was much different – and confident. She also said that just before a plane ride, she got a couple very important emails, and then found out she had the middle seat on the plane. After a couple droppers full of CBD oil, she felt relaxed and read a book for the remainder of the flight.
Admittedly, Leah was unsure of whether the CBD was the reason for this, but she said on five of seven nights that she took CBD oil with her evening tea, she slept excellent, which is someone uncommon for her.
Lastly, Leah found that the “heaviness of depression” didn’t occur while she was on the CBD oil. She has struggled with depression throughout her life and says it can creep up if she isn’t very attentive with her mental health.
While this article is very subjective to Leah, it is just one more example of how CBD might help people with numerous issues. Is it a cure all? No, and nothing else is either. It’s refreshing to hear positive stories like this in a world filled with pessimism and negativity.
