Can CBD oil help with aggression caused by autism?

Can CBD oil help with aggression caused by autism?

Recent studies have shown CBD to be beneficial for children who have autism. From helping to calm anxiety and stress, to lessening violent outbursts. Getting children to take CBD oil is hard; they hold it in their mouth under their tongue for 2-3 minutes to get any benefit.

Can CBD oil help with cocaine withdrawal?

Research shows that CBD may correct the genetic changes due to cocaine abuse. Long term abuse Long-term abuse of cocaine induces compensatory changes in numerous genes associated with brain function.

How bad is CBD oil mislabelling in the UK?

A study by a leading UK cannabis-advocacy group suggests that CBD oil mislabelling effects over 60% of products available in the UK. The UK-based research was conducted following a US study that found inaccurate labelling of almost 70% of cannabidiol (CBD) products brought online. The UK results revealed that only 38% of the products tested were within 10% of their claimed CBD content. Perhaps more concerning was that almost half of the products had more than the permitted amount of...

The miracle of CBD and your immune system, does it work?

The Endocannabinoid System and Immune System The discovery of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) is still fairly recent, and we are still learning how it works with and inside the body.

Your body produces endocannabinoids as needed to help modulate or regulate cell function, including the cells in your immune system. How CBD Affects The Immune...

Can CBD help dogs with pain and arthritis?

This is a question we are asked constantly. We are not allowed to diagnose or give advice about treating your pet. I can tell you that dogs have an endocannabinoid system like humans do. If you do want to give your dog CBD, it would be best to give them water soluble CBD. A dog will not be able to hold CBD oil under its tongue so would be pointless giving them it. The water soluble can be added to...
