Despite the fact that the mechanism of action of CBD is not fully understood, medical practice suggests that CBD oil and other CBD-containing drugs can regulate pain due to the effect of cannabidiol on opioid receptors and glycine receptors. The progressive part of the medical community declares the effectiveness of CBD oil in the treatment of the following pathologies:

  • Chronic pain
  • Depression
  • Anorexia
  • Anxiety
  • Drug addiction and withdrawal
  • Epilepsy
  • Glaucoma
  • Insomnia
  • Muscle spasms
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Hypertension

CBD oil also has an anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect. At the same time, it does not provoke side effects, so it can be used for all the above pathologies without the risk of overdose. However, patients are advised to consult with their doctor beforehand before taking CBD oil or any other form of cannabidiol.
Despite the limited number of studies conducted on patients using CBD oil, Western medicine claims that this product can seriously become an alternative to many painkillers, including those of opioid origin.
