In the world of healthcare, there is an ongoing need for research into new and innovative methods of solving the problems and illnesses of patients worldwide. NaturAll Kitchen’s use of CBD aims to quell the problems experienced topically, in the hair and scalp, however every day there are even more studies and scientific journals that point to the various uses for CBD internally as well. Here we present 3 exciting breakthroughs in CBD research, and how its use could be helpful within healthcare!
- May reduce chemotherapy side effects
Patients going through chemotherapy treatment can experience negative side effects-one of which is CINV, or chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. This side effect can have a huge impact on quality of life, and as such scientists are excited to have found that in a study, when patients used a combination of CBD and THC administered via mouth spray, their CINV suffering subsided! Although more research has to be conducted, this is a huge breakthrough for those seeking a more natural way to find relief from the negative side effects of chemotherapy.
- Can assist in substance abuse treatment
Although in the past, addiction was seen as a lack of determination, today we know that it is a disease that requires treatment and in many cases, medication. For patients who seek a more natural way to stay their course in addiction treatment, CBD has been shown to modify circuits in the brain related to drug addiction and aid in reducing dependence on some drugs. Although only tested on a few humans, this is an exciting development in both the treatment of addiction, and the world of homeopathic medicine!
- Might help reduce blood pressure
Having high blood pressure means that your doctor consistently reads your blood pressure as 130/80 millimeters of mercury (mmHg) or higher, and it is always recommended to seek intervention as soon as possible to prevent further increases in blood pressure that could lead to health problems. Thankfully researchers have studied the effects of CBD on a small group of healthy men ages 19 to 29 — all nonsmokers who had never used cannabis — and discovered a single dose of CBD reduced resting blood pressure by 6 millimeters of mercury (mmHg). This discovery means that the use of CBD may be able to effectively reduce the risk of stroke and the development of heart disease, one the leading causes of death worldwide.
All of these scientific breakthroughs, although recent, are incredible when you consider how many people can benefit from these newly found uses. NaturAll is extremely excited about these discoveries and happy to be a part of the CBD and natural hair care revolution!
