“It’s the new miracle drug!” That’s a phrase pharmaceutical companies have been saying for, what? The last 50 years?
But what if the real miracle drug, or extract, in this case, wasn’t pharmaceutical at all? That’s what we’re starting to figure out by learning more about Hemp and CBD.
CBD is sweeping the nation and the world for a reason – it’s mild enough to not get you high but strong enough to help replace traditional medicines.
Want to learn what it can replace and how? Learn below.
Replacing Traditional Medicines
We’re not doctors. Please do not stop any medication you’re on, if it’s prescription, without talking to your primary care physician.
While CBD is powerful, it’s not a replacement (at least right now) for more serious afflictions like heart or breathing problems.
That said – it’s more a replacement for non-threating illnesses and annoyances, like …
Again, please do not stop taking any depression medication if it’s prescribed to you by your doctor.
But if you’re looking for a way to start easing off of it, try bringing CBD into your routine. Notice what the changes are and discuss them with your doctor.
Some people have gotten off antidepressants or anti-anxiety meds altogether with CBD – under medical supervision.
Do you get a headache at the end of the day, or lunchtime, like clockwork?
It could be from something as simple as caffeine withdrawal if you’re having too much and it wears off. Or it could be stress and inflammation-related. Try using CBD to treat your headaches instead of ibuprofen or Tylenol.
Taking a break from those NSAIDs is better for your kidneys and your liver, anyway!
Some people have found that taking a regular dose of CBD has reduced the number of migraine days they get a month.
If you’re plagued by chronic migraines, it’s worth a try! Even if you just get one or two fewer bad days a month, that’s more than worth it!
Body Aches from Chronic Illness
A lot of chronic illnesses, like gout, fibromyalgia, and other nerve disorders cause your body to hurt more times than not.
Using CBD externally can help on bad pain days, especially if the pain is localized in one spot.
It can even help reduce your general pain days if you take it internally, regularly.
Body Aches from Workouts and Athletic Activity
If you’re in great shape or you’re trying to get there, you know how hard it is to get up and go to the gym when just walking down the stairs in the morning hurts.
Instead of taking those chemical-filled recovery drinks that you get at the vitamin store – try CBD. You can take it before you go to bed the day after a workout or apply it externally to your sore muscles.
You’ll get back in the gym faster and you’ll get to your goal quicker!
