Health Benefits of CBD Oil

Reading time 2 min.

Cannabidiol, better known by the initials CBD, is one of the many natural chemical compounds found in the cannabis (marijuana) plant. CBD is often confused with another one of marijuana’s chemical compounds, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is what gives a person a “high” when they smoke weed or eat edibles. CBD, on the other hand, does not give off a “high.” Both natural chemicals can help with pain relief, but people who do not want to get high can still use CBD. Below are some great benefits and uses of CBD oil.


Using CBD oil is one of the lesser-known home remedies for fighting off headaches and migraines. Pain relief is one of the primary uses for CBD oil and with good cause. People who use CBD oil are less likely to have headaches and migraines or have lesser symptoms associated with these conditions.


One of the best-known uses of CBD oil is using it to treat anxiety. People who struggle with anxiety often have high levels of stress; they often tend to worry more than the average person. Using CBD oil can help people with anxiety relax, which can help to ease their symptoms. As a bonus, using CBD does not have many of the negative side effects that prescription anxiety medication may come with, like insomnia, low sex drive, and headaches.


Inflammation can be both internal and external in the body. Internal inflammation can cause issues like tonsilitis, appendicitis, and general swelling. External swelling can come from bug bites, allergic reactions (hives), and scratches. CBD oil can be used to treat both types of inflammation.

For internal health concerns, CBD oil should be ingested. This can help to get the oil to the source quickly. When it comes to external swelling, the oil can be ingested or mixed with a cream or carrier oil. If mixed in a cream or other oil, the mixture can be applied directly to the swollen area (so long is it is not caused by a deep or open cut).

High Blood Pressure

Did you know that using CBD oil can help to reduce high blood pressure? This can do wonders when it comes to heart health. People who take CBD oil are more likely to have lower blood pressure and have lesser spikes in blood pressure after strenuous or stressful activities. Having stable blood pressure has its own benefits. These include having a lower risk for heart attack, stroke, and other circulatory ailments.


Insomnia is a type of sleep disorder in which people have trouble falling asleep and/or staying asleep. Not getting enough sleep can affect people’s health in many negative ways, so it’s best to remedy the issue as soon as possible. Taking CBD oil internally is a great way to do this. CBD helps to relax the body and mind, making it easier to fall asleep and stay asleep. Unlike over the counter sleeping pills, it doesn’t come with nearly as many of the nasty side effects.

Side Effects

Like anything else, natural or not, using CBD oil does come with a few side effects for some people. However, it should be noted that not everyone will have the same side effects. Some people may have no side effects at all. The most common side effects are mild and include diarrhea, fatigue, and appetite gain or loss (which may cause weight gain or loss).

It is also important to talk to your doctor before you begin using CBD oil, just like you would with any other type of medication, herbal remedy, or natural home remedy. It is especially important because CBD oil may negatively impact how some prescription medications work. If you are unsure if the oil will affect your medication, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

For the most part, CBD oil can do great things for a person’s health. The examples above show just a few of the great health benefits CBD oil supplies. If your doctor okays it, try CBD oil and see how it can help you!
