11 Remarkable Health Benefits of Cannabis Oil Extracts

Research has shown that the use of cannabis oil provides remarkable health benefits. Is using cannabis oil right for you?

Cannabis oil is hailed as being an effective solution for treating various health issues as well as providing a host of health benefits.

Researchers have found cannabis oil to contain two active elements that have medicinal value. The two are cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The effects of CBD are the opposite of THC, which is associated with the "high" that is synonymous with cannabis use. It is possible to enjoy either oil using desktop vaporizers or portable vaporizers.

Some of the Remarkable Health Benefits of Cannabis Oil Include:


1. Relieves Anxiety and Stress

The most widely known use of cannabis or cannabis oil is to relieve stress and anxiety. The oil contains natural compounds that cause the mind to relax. This is triggered by the release of the pleasure hormone that also induces a sense of calmness, thus reducing stress and anxiety.

2. Enhances Appetite

The consumption of cannabis in any form often leads to an increased appetite. Conversely, it is possible to use the same natural element to regulate our appetite even as it helps encourage hunger. It works by stimulating the digestive system to establish a regulated cycle, effectually aiding in the management of food consumption.

3. Relieves Pain

In most cases, the use of cannabis oil is associated with the treatment of chronic pain and inflammation. That may be why most people diagnosed with cancer and are undergoing treatment turn to cannabis or hemp-related products when they need pain relief, either from the disease itself or the chemotherapy.

4. Increases Sleep Longevity

Taking a whiff from portable vaporizers that contain the cannabis oil while in bed can be beneficial for people who have trouble sleeping. Inhaling the released active chemicals in the cannabis oil can aid in quelling anxiety and relaxing the mind and body, effectively overcoming the struggles of getting a restful night's sleep. It lowers the energy levels and the heart rate to the point where the mind and body feel at peace,  allowing you to fall asleep within a short period.

5. Treats PTSD

Some elements of CBD that are nearly similar to THC help in regulating the systems in the mind and body that trigger fear and anxiety. The use of cannabis oil will aid in inhibiting these responses, making it one of the top medical options for treating post-traumatic stress disorder.

6. Reduces Glaucoma

Research has shown that the use of cannabis can help promote eye health. Studies suggest that it can treat and lower the risk of glaucoma while preventing macular degeneration of the eyes as a person ages.

7. Prevents Cancer

Having desktop vaporizers in the home office or workplace so that you can enjoy the benefits of cannabis oil can also help lower the risk of cancer. The active chemicals in the cannabis oil have preventative effects on cancer that include reducing and preventing the development of tumors. Various reports suggest that the use of cannabis oil can help beat some cancers.

8. Helps Control Epileptic Seizures

People with epilepsy can benefit from cannabis oil, specifically the THC compound in the oil. It attaches to the brain cells that regulate excitability and relaxation, which can help in controlling seizures. Epileptic individuals can carry portable vaporizers with them to take a whiff of their herbal medicine whenever the need arises.

9. Eases Arthritis Discomfort

People with arthritis experience aches and pains and find it hard to sleep. But they can find a solution to these issues by using cannabis oil. The oil will help ease the discomfort by alleviating the aches and pain, reducing inflammation, and promoting sleep.

10. Treats Inflammatory Bowel Diseases

While CBD and THC chemicals interact with the cells in the body differently, they collectively play a vital role in supporting and improving the gut functions and immune responses. For instance, CBD in the cannabis oil inhibits the activity of THC-like compounds produced by the body that increase the permeability of the intestines, which, in turn, lead to the increase of bacterial infections and inflammatory bowel diseases. The cannabinoids (CBD) work by tightening the bond between the intestinal cells, adequately enhancing their permeability resistance.

11. Slows Alzheimer’s Disease

Different studies are suggesting that the THC in cannabis oil can slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease. It works by blocking or reducing the activity of enzymes in the brain that produce amyloid plaques, which destroy brain cells and lead to Alzheimer's disease.

You can enjoy each of the health benefits of cannabis oil mentioned above by using portable vaporizers or desktop vaporizers.
