Considering trying CBD but unsure of whether or not you’ll benefit? There are many reasons to try the cannabinoid compound. First, know that it doesn’t get you “high” the way marijuana does. You won’t fail a drug test from taking the supplement, and it’s an all-natural compound. If you’re looking for a holistic approach to help manage pain, anxiety, inflammation, and many more conditions, CBD might be right for you.

Check out the CBD oil benefits guide and then keep reading for five reasons to give it a try. Chances are you struggle with at least one of the ailments listed below.

1. CBD Can Help With Insomnia

Insomnia, defined as the inability to fall asleep, affects countless individuals. Many of us toss and turn at night, struggling with either falling or staying asleep. It leads to groggy mornings, poor concentration throughout the day, and  irritability.

How CBD can help: It’s believed that  CBD helps with insomnia by interacting with serotonin receptors in the brain. A common side effect of CBD is listed as drowsiness, which shows promise for those with sleep troubles.

2. CBD Can Help Manage Pain

It’s said that CBD is changing the pain management industry as consumers look for natural treatment alternatives. Many think that CBD can help manage pain resulting from PMS, as well as pain in those who suffer from arthritis. Cancer patients, individuals with chronic back pain, multiple sclerosis, and more swear by cannabidiol.

How CBD can help: CBD helps manage pain by interacting with brain receptors to boost levels of serotonin and anandamide. These brain chemicals are known to block pain in those who suffer.

3. CBD Can Help Manage Anxiety

CBD is rising in popularity as a natural way to help manage anxiety. For those with panic disorder and generalized anxiety disorder, and PTSD, this is big news. Not only does CBD help those who struggle with chronic anxiety, but it can help individuals who suffer from stress-induced or situational anxiety.

How CBD can help: CBD helps with anxiety by affecting blood flow in the brain. Studies show that oral use of CBD can help improve user’s response to fear and reduce stress. It’s been tested in those with fear of public speaking, and individuals who experience recurring traumatic thoughts. It has shown to have a similar efficacy rate to prescription anxiety medications.

4. CBD Can Help With Digestive Issues

The body’s endocannabinoid system helps balance all of our internal functions. One of these is your gut, which includes everything from your esophagus, down to your liver, gallbladder, pancreas, and colon. Common digestive issues include constipation, frequent stomach pain, and IBS.

How CBD can help: CBD can help digestive issues, as your gut is full of cannabinoid receptors. CBD helps relax and maintain balance in the anatomy of your gut. It can promote faster digestion, fewer spasms that cause cramps and pain, and studies show that it can reduce inflammation in the intestines.

5. CBD Can Help Dry Skin and Acne

Studies show that topical CBD products can help reduce skin inflammation, a leading cause of many common skincare concerns. From dry skin to acne, rosacea to eczema, CBD may be able to help. There are now CBD makeup products on the market for those looking to reap the benefits.

How CBD can help: Research states that CBD helps regulate skin cell development and promotes the body’s ability to heal from a skin condition. All of this, helps lessen the chance of scars developing from conditions like chronic acne. It also helps regulate the production of keratin, a protein found in epithelial cells that protect the surface of the skin.
