As the use of CBD products continues to become more and more popular in today’s society, many people who have never used these products before may ask themselves whether or not there are any benefits to using them, and if incorporating them into their routine could work for their lifestyle.
CBD has not yet been classified as a food, medicine or cosmetic product, so we are unable to make any direct statements about the impact that it has on the body. However, we can look at the range of effects reported by users of CBD products as well as scientific research to allow our customers to learn about the main effects that CBD oil could have on the body without being biased.
Mental health and wellbeing is an extremely important element of anyone’s lives, and there are many different methods that can effectively combat the symptoms of anxiety and stress. CBD oil has reportedly been used over centuries to aid therapeutic purposes and has become much more popular in recent years. It has been suggested by researchers that CBD could show great promise in effectively treating stress, anxiety and depression, and this could be due to a range of different factors.
Instead of causing psychoactive effects as THC would, CBD oil may promote a feeling of relaxation and calm and, in turn, provide relief from everyday anxiety and stress. There are also a number of regular CBD users that have reported that CBD oil promotes a better quality of sleep and helps to create a more regular sleeping pattern through relaxation of the muscles.

It has also been suggested that CBD oil could help to combat body pain caused by injury, illness or a chronic condition. As it is thought to reduce inflammation within the body, CBD oil may have the power to ease both targeted and widespread body pain caused by a range of conditions, including back pain, nerve pain, muscle spasms, arthritis, multiple sclerosis and fibromyalgia among many others. As CBD oil is a natural remedy, this provides a safe way for many sufferers of pain to continue to live a normal life.
It is thought that CBD oil provides pain relief in a variety of ways. Firstly, its interaction with our serotonin receptors could be an important part of this, as it has been suggested that it has the potential to activate them. This could lead to an increase in serotonin, which is known as the ‘happy hormone’, therefore resulting in a reduction in pain. Research also brings forward the idea that TRPV1 receptors could support the possible pain-relieving effects of CBD oil, as when they are activated they could reduce the perception of pain as well as regulate body temperature.

Among its many potential benefits, CBD oil has been reported to aid in the treatment of addiction, allowing users to break habits such as alcohol and tobacco use. As there is a limited amount of medical remedies and resources available that effectively treat addiction, this claim is a promising one. Research studies have suggested that modulating serotonin levels directly, as well as the endogenous cannabinoid and opioid receptors, could affect the way in which drug users recall their experiences and possibly reduce the intensity of their cravings, limiting the neurological effects of their addiction.
The same studies continued to examine the role of CBD in specific addictions, suggesting that it has great potential when it comes to reducing use in individuals who are looking to quit. For example, there are plenty of remedies and aids that claim to make quitting easier, such as chewing gum, patches and vaping products; however, as CBD does not contain any nicotine, this makes it an exciting natural remedy that could treat this type of addiction.

Here’s what you can expect from our CBD products:
Holistic Herb’s uniquely micro-emulsified Premium CBD has vastly superior Total Bioavailability™, which means it is more efficient, enters the bloodstream faster and remains there in higher quantities for longer. Many regular CBD products are not as efficiently absorbed and are not protected, and as a result, they can lose as much as 98% of the active CBD through destruction by the digestive system on their way to the bloodstream. As a result, only a small fraction of active CBD from regular products makes it to systemic circulation. With over 90% of the active CBD in the Holistic Herb product being fully absorbed into the bloodstream, you can be confident that our Total Bioavailability™ is helping to bring you a more efficient product and value for money.
