Is CBD Oil Safe?
With the legalization of marijuana in most of the states, Cannabidiol has become one of the most demanded products in the industry. Market scenario reveals that this non-intoxicating hemp plant extract is considered as the best choice for treating most of the medical health conditions, including sleeplessness, inflammation, anxiety, epilepsy seizures, and many more. However, few studies report that there are least evidence against these touted benefits of CBD oil.
The worst fact is that in most countries, Cannabidiol is being produced without proper legalization and regulations; hence, the end products usually vary in terms of quality and effectiveness. Marcel Bonn-Miller, an assistant professor at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, recently revealed that Joe Bob, a local CBD company owner, sells products to the buyers by writing any random details on the label. It is high time to understand that the high component of Marijuana is delivered by chemical THC. but it is missing in CBD oil. Note that, CBD oil is extracted from buds and flowers of the hemp plant or marijuana, and these ingredients do not get high on the users.
As per Governing Magazine, CBD oil at present is legalized in 30 states for medical as well as recreational usage. Also, Prevention magazine states that seventeen other states have developed specific law books for CBD; this list includes Wyoming, Wisconsin, Virginia, Utah, Texas, Tennessee, South Dakota, South Carolina, Oklahoma, North Carolina, Missouri, Mississippi, Kentucky, Iowa, Indiana, Georgia, and Alabama.
Can CBD oil treat Epilepsy?
There are several pieces of evidence in support of using CBD oil for epilepsy treatment. Even Food and Drug Administration of the United States approved CBD as considerable medication for treating two rare types of epilepsies in children. Experts in the medical health field reveal that this is the only area where strong evidence in support of using CBD oil as the medication is found. For most another potential usage of CBD, there are least evidence to drive any considerable conclusion.
Bonn Miller also revealed that there are only a few human trials that reported CBD as a potential solution for treating anxiety. The clinical trials are available only for epilepsy treatment in adults and kids as well. Although CBD oil is also considered as a potential anti-inflammatory medication; but the supporting results for this recommendation are derived only from animal studies; the trials on humans are yet to be performed. Similarly, the rest of the potential usage of Cannabidiol such as sleep aid, antidepressant, and antipsychotic substance; all are limited to animal studies. Only one or two tests are performed on humans.
At the same time, there are several concerns about the quality of production and the potential side effects associated with CBD oil. The lack of regulation on a global level is the prime reason behind least evidence against medical health benefits of CBD. Also, the potential interactions of CBD with other medications are yet to be studied in detail. Once these doubts are clear, then only it is possible to recommend CBD oil for medical health treatment with more confidence.
