Imagine a life constantly in pain. Throw in some extreme tiredness, plus feeling like your whole body is on fire, and that is a roundabout description of fibromyalgia. Not surprisingly many sufferers also experience low mood, depression and anxiety as their once active lives become a living hell. More often than not the cocktail of drugs prescribed fail to keep symptoms in check and are accompanied by hard to bear side effects. So increasingly, many fibromyalgia patients are turning to medical cannabis, in particular CBD.
CBD, or Cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid that has taken the cannabis community by storm. As CBD gets into the hands of more and more people, the reported benefits are blowing the minds of medical professionals and cannabis users alike. According to users, and a number of studies, CBD seems to have an impact on those who battle depression. Is CBD truly a good treatment for those dealing with depression?
Until very recently, CBD has lived in the shadow of its infamous cannabinoid cousin, THC, which is widely known as the high-inducing compound in Marijuana. However, extensive research is now being conducted on CBD and its medical potential, which has opened the doors for antipsychotic, anticancer and anti inflammatory treatment options among many others. One after another, scientists are publishing studies that prove CBD is the most dynamic and useful of the cannabinoids as far as promotion of proper function of the systems of the body is concerned.
