You may have heard of essential oils and other types of topicals being used in physical therapy practices, but have you heard of CBD oil?
CBD—which is short for Cannabidiol, is a phytocannabinoid that's found in cannabis or industrial hemp plants. It's one of the most abundant compounds in these plants, along with another cannabinoid, THC.
CBD is the non-psychoactive cannabinoid of the plant—unlike THC which induces mind-altering effects. It has already been hailed for its benefits in both humans and animals and has the miraculous ability to impact several processes that the endocannabinoid system regulates.
CBD works to alleviate a number of symptoms—thanks to its interaction with the receptors of the endocannabinoid system (ECS). This system promotes balance in the body by regulating a host of different biological functions, including sleep, pain, inflammation, mood, and appetite, among others. It makes use of naturally-occurring endocannabinoids to maintain homeostasis in the body by communicating between nerve cells throughout the body.
CBD's ability to reduce pain—Studies have shown that CBD has the ability to minimize inflammation, improve mood, regulate the metabolism, strengthen immunity, reduce the number and severity of seizures, alleviate nausea, and even potentially slow down the growth of specific cancer cells and tumors.
CBD oil supplements are available in several different formats and concentrations. We specialize in tailoring your prescription to meet your specific needs.
