Cannabidiol, known as CBD, is a cannabinoid, one of over a hundred chemical compounds found in cannabis or hemp plants. CBD has found a market as a natural health supplement and is used as a natural remedy for numerous common ailments.
Unlike other cannabinoids in cannabis, such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol does not have psychoactive properties. However, CBD does offer therapeutic properties as an anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and anti-anxiety supplement. Studies suggest that CBD oil may help reduce chronic pain due to it impacting endocannabinoid receptor activity in humans which acts to reduce inflammation and interact with neurotransmitters. For applications, CBD is extracted from the cannabis plant and diluted with natural carrier oils such as that from hemp seed or coconut.
Most experts agree that evidence is inadequate to support most of the benefits hyped by CBD proponents. There is scientific evidence that it could be beneficial for the treatment of childhood epilepsy syndromes, however it has not officially been reviewed by, nor approved by, the Food and Drug Administration for that use. Other studies show it may lower inflammation, or act to inhibit the inflammatory and neuropathic pain associated with chronic pain. However, these results were not based on human trials but models derived from animal testing. More study and human trials are needed before proponent claims that a cure for inflammation and pain control by CBD applications can be substantiated. CBD should not be viewed as a medication, but as a health supplement.
CBD has not gone through rigorous testing to show it's both safe and effective. Aloe Vera’s potent benefits have history behind them and have supported by both modern studies and thousands of years of use. The colorless, viscous gel found within the leaves of this succulent plant have more active ingredients than CBD oil to help support overall wellness.
