10 Health Benefits of CBD

CBD is increasingly becoming well-known for its health benefits and therapeutic properties. For hundreds of years, cannabis—the source plant of CBD—has been used by healers across different cultures from all over the world. In the modern world, science is already starting to confirm this, and there’s plenty of research to back up all of the anecdotes you might have heard about CBD. In fact, CBD has been incorporated into UK-approved medicines like Sativex and Epidiolex. It shows great potential healthcare too because it’s more chemically familiar too to our bodies than typical drugs, meaning there’s less resistance. On top of these, CBD products are safe and not addictive, with minimal side effects.
Here are ten health benefits of CBD, ranging from relaxation to alleviating serious conditions like epilepsy and multiple sclerosis:

1. Provides Pain Relief
2. Has Antioxidant Properties

7. Fights Against Skin Conditions

Can CBD Help treat Severe Lung Inflammation in some Coronavirus Survivors?

According to the World Health Organization, there have been 71.9 million confirmed cases of COVID-19 around the world and 1.6 million deaths caused by the novel coronavirus as of this article’s writing. As a result, the global economy plunged into the worst recession since World War II.

In the UK, the number of cases currently stands at 1.89 million, and the unemployment rate continues to rise as hundreds of thousands have lost their jobs.

While news of the UK becoming the first country to authorise the use of a vaccine is incredibly promising in preventing the spread of COVID-19, there is still the crucial matter of treating those who have already contracted the virus and are suffering from its debilitating effects.

Research on coronavirus treatments has led to a familiar avenue—CBD—which has been proven before to have therapeutic benefits for other medical conditions.

It is of utmost importance to understand that the research this article presents only shows the possibility of CBD as treating COVID-19. There is yet to be any definitive proof that taking CBD can cure coronavirus or treat its symptoms. More work still has to be done to make such conclusions and to turn to CBD use as the first line of defence upon contracting the coronavirus.
