5 Reasons To Keep Some CBD Oil In Your Medicine Cabinet

Posted on: 16 January 2019

Even if you are not interested in using marijuana recreationally, you should consider keeping some CBD oil in your medicine cabinet. CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is a different substance from THC, the compound in marijuana that makes you feel high. CBD does not make you feel high, but it does have a number of medical benefits that make it worthy of a spot in your medicine cabinet.

CBD helps ease pain naturally.

Many people rely on pain relievers like ibuprofen when they develop a headache or aches. But ibuprofen is not as safe as you might assume. It can cause an array of side effects, such as stomach pain, heartburn, headaches, vomiting, and blurred vision. CBD also delivers pain relief but with fewer side effects. You can reach for it when you have a headache, menstrual cramps, or even some soreness in your knee after running on hard ground. People have been using marijuana for pain relief for centuries, and it has always been the CBD in marijuana — not the THC — that alleviates pain.

CBD is great for anxiety.

Many people suffer from occasional bouts of anxiety. Maybe you're not affected enough that you need to seek treatment from a psychologist, but you want some means for relief when you start to feel anxious. CBD is well-known to alleviate anxiety. When you start to feel overwhelmed, you can take a little and feel the stress just melt away. For the fastest relief, you will want to use vaporized CBD. Taken orally, the CBD takes longer to work its magic, so you may continue to feel anxious for 20 minutes or so. If you vaporize the CBD, however, you can get instant relief.

CBD can ease nausea.

Nausea can arise for many reasons. Maybe you ate something that did not agree with you, or perhaps you have a migraine coming on. Taking CBD can help soothe your stomach and ease your nausea before you end up vomiting or experiencing diarrhea. It's a good choice for people who cannot take typical anti-nausea drugs. And if the idea of swallowing oil when you're feeling nauseous is off-putting, there are many CBD edibles flavored like strawberries, lemons, and other fruits. You won't even taste the CBD oil.

CBD can help ease acne.

If you have serious cystic acne, then you probably want to see a dermatologist for treatment. But if you just have the occasional breakout and need a remedy to heal pimples faster, opt for CBD. You can put a tiny dab on any pimple in the evening, and the next day, you will notice that it is less prominent. Some people even mix a drop or two of CBD oil into their moisturizer for its acne-fighting properties. If you have really oily skin, this solution may not work well, but it's perfect for people with combination and dry skin.

CBD can save you from a migraine.

Every migraine sufferer is different, and what works for another person may not work for you. Some migraine sufferers, however, find that taking a few drops of CBD the second they start to feel a migraine coming on stops the migraine in its tracks. Migraines are terribly debilitating, so it never hurts to have an extra remedy on hand. You can safely combine CBD oil with other migraine medications, too, so it's a good option to keep around.

Visit a cannabis dispensary near you, and stock up on CBD oil today. You could also buy some CBD gummies or a vaporizer that contains CBD if you feel those options are easier to administer.
