Medicinal cannabis and CBD-Hemp oil has been a long standing interest of our practice due to our 15+ years of work with severe trauma and chronic mental health conditions. In November of 2016, ?Prima Wellness Co-Founder, Jessica Serra attended a Cannabis in Medicine Symposium?at her home site, Yale University, which solidified our position in the cannabis movement.
In the empirically driven world of research, there are randomized control trials (RCTs) which are the golden standard. Above RCTs, are meta-analyses and systematic reviews which constitute “the research of the research”.
CBD Hemp oil has a plethora of research studies available that cite its efficacy as a promising treatment for noted psychological and physiological conditions.
This 2013 study published in the ?British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology?is one of many studies that?analyzed CBD Hemp Oil that and found that the compound had been linked with improved targeted symptomology. ?As a practice specializing in psychological wellness and the correlation between brain function, emotional regulation, and nutrition, research around cannabidiol as a potential treatment for Anxiety Disorders?and?Depressive Disorders?has been of particular interest to us.
Although the hierarchy of science is important, we also value the “non-scientific” evidence that we have encountered along our journey. ?The personal anecdotes, testimonials, articles, and blogs that cite the positive impact of CBD Hemp oil. ? Three individuals in our personal circle of note (one child, one adolescent, and one adult) have had a notable positive shift in their conditions after 60 days of CBD oil use. ?The first being a reduction in seizures due to a neurological disorder, the second a tremendous decrease in anxiety symptoms that were a byproduct of a long standing Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and the third a decrease in chronic back pain precipitated by an automobile accident.
With any substance or supplement we ingest, we first take the important step of doing our own research to determine if this is a valid addition into our own healthcare regimen. ?We would not expect our clients do any different and highly encourage ((( YOUR ))) own literature review of scholarly publications. ?PubMed, which is part of the National Institute of Health’s US National Library of Medicine is a great place to begin!
Research has demonstrated that CBD-Hemp oil ?has negligible toxicity and; therefore, is not harmful for humans. Before CBD was declared beneficial for health, a large number of trials have been carried out to confirm its clinical efficacy.The different pharmacological properties of CBD give it a different safety profile from THC.
A review of 25 studies on the safety and efficacy of CBD did not identify significant side effects across a wide range of dosages, including acute and chronic dose regimens, using various modes of administration. CBD is present in Nabiximols which, is approved throughout most of Europe and in other countries. Nabiximols (trade name Sativex) is a specific extract of Cannabis that was first approved as a botanical drug in United Kingdom in 2010 as a mouth spray to alleviate neuropathic pain, spasticity, overactive bladder, and other symptoms of multiple sclerosis.?Because of this, there is extensive information available with regard to the metabolism, toxicology, and safety of CBD-Hemp oil.
