CBD NEUROPROTECTIVE EFFECTS
Of all 80+ cannabinoids identified so far, CBD is the most promising due to its potential wellness benefits. Research suggests hemp-derived CBD has potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties which may help regulate neurological functions and protect the central nervous system. But what does it mean to be a neuroprotectant? Neuroprotective compounds help prevent and reduce damage to the brain and nervous system. They also promote growth and development of neurons, the brain cells responsible for transmitting electrical impulses in our system.
CBD and Brain Injury
Damage caused by traumatic injuries can cause temporary damage to the brain and affect various nervous functions. If not treated properly and in a timely manner, temporary brain and nerve damage can become permanent. Researchers believe a consistent CBD regimen can help protect against injury damage and improve recovery.
How CBD Protects the Brain from Itself
Recent scientific findings also suggest CBD shows promising benefits for spinal cord injuries and diseases, strokes, and neurodegenerative diseases. While research is still being conducted to determine the exact benefits of CBD on neurological disorders, it is believed the neuroprotective properties of CBD may help slow down or prevent the progression of conditions like multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s. Because most neurological diseases occur progressively, the best way to help limit their development is with a long-term CBD regimen. The daily recommended dosage of CBD usually ranges from 0.5 ml to 1 ml which you can consume via oil or edibles like CBD edible gummies. Each form of CBD has its pros and cons. For example, CBD gummies may taste better and offer a familiar consumption method; but CBD Hemp oil dosages, are easier to adjust and can be mixed into other foods.
