Studies have proven the positive impact of Cannabidiol products on human health. Because of this, they are actively used for:

  • Improvement in the quality of sleep. Cannabidiol has a sedative, relaxing effect on the central nervous system, providing deep and healthy sleep. It helps fight sleep disorders such as insomnia, parasomnia, difficulty falling asleep and frequent awakenings at night. CBD dosage to sleep depends on the type of disorder
  • Treatment of neurotic disorders. The sedative effect of CBD oil helps with neurosis, depression, and anxiety disorders. CBD products are only part of the complex therapy for neurotic disorders, so combining them with other treatments is essential.
  • Wrinkle prevention. The oil improves skin regeneration, relieves inflammation, and prevents dehydration. As a result, the skin remains smooth, even, and supple. Moreover, the redness disappears quickly. Cannabidiol also provides UV protection. However, that does not mean you have to neglect sunscreen!
  • Fight chronic fatigue and stress. Even if you don't have anxiety disorders, the fast pace of life often leads to a constant feeling of tiredness, fatigue, and lack of energy. Cannabidiol products will help you recover faster and feel good throughout the day.
  • Improving training performance. The pain-relieving and regenerating effect of creams and ointments with Cannabidiol helps to recover better after intense training and achieve results faster.
  • Symptomatic treatment of diseases such as Crohn's disease, Parkinson's disease, epilepsy, etc. It is due to the anticonvulsant properties of Cannabidiol.

In addition, these products improve the condition of the cardiovascular system, reduce the pain of various origins and help against nausea.

How much Cannabidiol to take

Cannabidiol is a safe organic product, but it is important to dose it correctly. The dosage depends on the specific product and the purpose of its use. Therefore it is necessary to follow the instructions for each product separately. Also, note that Cannabidiol preparations are not recommended for pregnant and lactating women, as well as children under 18 years of age. People taking medications on an ongoing basis should first consult with a therapist.
