What the Research Reveals on CBD Oil for Pain & Mood… So Far
This video is based on the studies highlighted on the use of CBD oil for pain and the brain in the concluding post to this series. As promised, the final review was provided; however, I have split the video of it into two parts for more digestible comprehension. Throughout these videos, I discuss the aspects to consider when reporting on trial results so you understand why findings may vary between studies.
Topics discussed in this 16-minute video include:
- A quick summary of what’s already been covered regarding CBD oil, a reiteration of the importance of safety when using it, and the new resources available from the article on its potential medication interactions.
- The three points to always keep at the top of your mind when implementing any health modality, including CBD oil, and the main takeaways on the clinical efficacy of CBD oil from the research.
- The reason why studies for CBD oil as a monotherapy is not as numerous as for other cannabinoid compounds.
- Why I highlighted meta-analyses vs. single trials and what the overall results found regarding the pain-relieving aspects of cannabinoids as well as their general safety.
- The promising aspects of preliminary results for using CBD oil and full spectrum hemp for discomfort.
- The bottom line on CBD oil’s impact mood. This topic will be reviewed in detail in the upcoming video along with a review of how cannabis compounds modulate the structure and function of the brain.
- Upcoming opportunities and events focusing on essential oils!
