OCD & CBD

What Can CBD Do For OCD?

Recent times have attracted an elevated interest in utilizing CBD (Cannabidiol) to help with anxiety. Most medications currently available have observed a limited response, extra symptoms, and side effects that limit tolerability. With the limitations of the modern approaches, a “high” priority has been placed on anxiety related issues in discovering alternative options.

CBD is a plant-based cannabinoid that won’t get your high and has zero known side effects. Recent researchhas been accumulating more interesting in CBD for OCD. Thus making CBD potentially helpful in relieving symptoms from OCB and other anxiety disorders.

What’s The Best CBD Dosage For OCD?

According to research, CBD usage demonstrated anti-compulsive effects (animal model) in doses up to (120 mg/kg). CBD dosage for OCD, we recommend you start with 1-2 doses, 1-2 times a day and increase 1-2 doses every 1-2 weeks until you achieve the desired results. In both low and high doses, CBD gains the upper hand by not producing (or increasing) anxiety or any other adverse side effects.

What’s The Best CBD Oil For OCD Treatment?

The best CBD oil for OCD treatment depends on how fast you want relief and for how long. Inhaling CBD (using Vaporizer and E-Liquids) produces fast acting results. Whereas ingesting CBD capsulesand water dropsare slower acting but longer lasting. Since a CBD molecule is a CBD molecule, “what” type of CBD you take is less important than “how” you choose to take CBD.

If you have nausea and can’t keep anything down, a sublingual or vaporizer option would be better than trying to keep a CBD capsule down.

In general, there are four basic ways to use CBD.

  • Inhale. 

  • Ingest. 

  • Sublingual.

  • Topical. 

  • Water drops. 

A good rule of thumb is to start with the method you feel most comfortable with. As you begin to experience relief, you might find yourself wanting to continue to explore other methods of taking CBD until you’ve found what method that provides the relief you desire.

 

Osteoporosis / Bone Health & CBD

A recent study established that bones have higher levels of ligands and endocannabinoids than brain cells. Anadamide, which is a naturally produced cannabinoid in the body, has an influence on the bone tissue because it binds to CB2 receptors. CBD imitates anadamide. As such, the findings of this study led the researchers to the conclusion that CBD shows potential health benefits for osteoporosis and bone health- http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17704191.

Another study focused on the role of cannabinoid receptors in osteoporosis treatment. The findings of this study established that CBD has the potential to influence ligands and bone metabolism. Thus, CBD shows potential health benefits for osteoporosis and bone health because it can be used to exploit cannabinoid receptors as the targets for anti-resorptive and anabolic therapy- https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21358974.

Why Consider Taking CBD?

CBD shows potential health benefits for osteoporosis and bone health as shown in the medical studies highlighted above. And, unlike THC, CBD does not make the user high. That’s because it is non-psychoactive. What’s more, CBD is legal in the U.S and you can order it online and use it from the comfort of your home.

If by chance you are not getting the results you want or need from conventional/over-the-counter medications, you may want to consider an all natural, organic CBD oilas a complimentary/dietary supplement.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Parkinson & CBD

The endocannabinoid system and digestive imbalance play major roles in Parkinson’s disease. Research on CBD, THC, and THCV has demonstrated that cannabis medicine may help to manage PD symptoms.

Scientists at the University of Louisville School of Medicine in Kentucky have identified a previously unknown molecular target of cannabidiol (CBD), which may have significant therapeutic implications for Parkinson’s Disease (PD).

A poster by Zhao-Hui Song and Alyssa S. Laun at the 2017 meeting of the International Cannabinoid Research Society in Montreal disclosed that CBD activates a G-coupled protein receptor called “GPR6” that is highly expressed in the basal ganglia region of the brain. GPR6 is considered an “orphan receptor” because researchers have yet to find the primary endogenous compound that binds to this receptor.

It has been shown that a depletion of GPR6 causes an increase of dopamine, a critical neurotransmitter, in the brain. This finding suggests GPR6 could have a role in the treatment of Parkinson’s, a chronic, neurodegenerative disease that entails the progressive loss of dopaminergic (dopamine-producing) neurons and consequent impairment of motor control. By acting as an “inverse agonist” at the GPR6 receptor, CBD boosts dopamine levels in preclinical studies.

  • The endocannabinoid system plays a major role in Parkinson’s Disease (PD).

  • PD is associated with impairment of motor control after the loss of 60-80% of dopamine-producing neurons in a critical brain region.

  • Digestive imbalance may play a role in the advancement of PD & the severity of symptoms.

  • Cannabinoids have neuroprotectant, anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties which can be beneficial for managing PD.

  • Various combinations of CBD, THC, and THCV may provide relief for Parkinson’s symptoms

In the last years, experimental studies contributed to enrich this scenario reporting interactions between cannabinoids and other receptor systems (transient receptor potential vanilloid type 1 cation channel, adenosine receptors, 5-hydroxytryptamine receptors). See the Parkinson’s Disease Scienze here!
