How People Are Using CBD

Here at Outch, we are no strangers to the benefits of CBD oil and that is why we decided to add it to our ingredients. The CBD oil and Chinese herbs act as a one-two-punch to alleviate pain. But did you know that CBD oil has many other uses?

Perhaps the most famous CBD story is that of Charlotte Figi. Charlotte is a little girl who at the age of 2 was diagnosed with Dravet Syndrome, a rare form of epilepsy that does not respond to medication. By the age of 5, Charlotte was having 300 grand mal seizures a week. Her parents turned to CBD as a last resort and what follows is a fascinating story about how she is now a thriving little girl who is almost 100% free of seizures by taking a strain of CBD oil aptly named after her, Charlotte’s Web.

CBD oil is also great for treating arthritis. A 2015 study showed very promising results when CBD was topically applied to rats while also showing no side effects. Medical professionals may say that more human studies need to be done, but the results speak for themselves. The internet is full of stories of people praising CBD oil for relief from arthritis pain. CBD has anti-inflammatory properties, which is why we’re seeing so much success with inflammatory disorders.

There are also many people who use CBD to relieve their anxiety, PTSD and depression. A double-blind study by Brazilian researchers tested patients affected by social anxiety. After the consumption of CBD oil, the subjects reported a decrease in their anxiety. Researchers validated the participants’ reports by performing brain scans which showed blood flow patterns consistent with an anti-anxiety effect.

Other disorders that may be treated with CBD oil are smoking cessation, acne reduction, autism treatment, reducing the symptoms of IBS, and treating multiple sclerosis. Heck, one of our users even claims that our Outch Salve shrunk his hemorrhoids.

The list of conditions that CBD helps to alleviate goes on and on. As the research continues to push forward into the world of CBD and natural healing, we will inevitably hear of even more uses of this amazing treatment.
