What the Research Reveals on CBD Oil’s Effects on the Brain and Mood
This is the second video based on the concluding article in my mega series on CBD oil, The Final Review of CBD Oil to Aid the Brain, Pain, and Neurological Strain. Since I wanted to provide you with the last post on schedule, I covered a lot of information at once. To allow for more digestible comprehension and to further expand on some of the studies discussed in the blog, I have split the video of it into two parts. In the previous video, I summarized what the research currently indicates on the use of CBD oil for pain. This video focuses on the effects of CBD oil on the brain and mood.
In this 19-minute video you will learn the following:
- Highlights from the previous topics on CBD oil and why the buyer must be aware and beware of mass marketing.
- Why it is imperative to consider the following when assessing the efficacy of CBD oil: biochemical individuality, regulation, safety, quality, and the differences between the isolates of CBD, other cannabis compounds, and full spectrum hemp products.
- Details of clinical reviews and meta-analyses on the use of CBD oil for mood and its effects on the brain.
- Limitations of basing the actions of CBD and cannabis compounds only on single trials.
- How CBD oil and cannabis compounds interact and modulate brain function, brain structure, and neurotransmitters.
- How genetic variations in two genes modulate how cannabis impacts the brain and its function.
- A discussion of the terpenes found in cannabis essential oil and how they synergize with cannabis compounds, including CBD.
- A review of a study on cannabis oil and its impact on anxiety and the nervous system and how this relates to the “entourage effect.”
- My conclusion regarding the use of CBD oil for pain, the brain, and mood.
