With high street brands now jumping on things such as CBD oil, and not getting the results they likely expected, it has now come into question whether CBD is as good as they say, or if it is just a new brand of glorified snake oil.

“CBD Oil is fantastic for many means, as long as the oil you get is high in CBD content and from a reputable manufacturer” – Charlotte, Aura CBD Oil UK

it turns out, that when you do research on the subject, there is a lot of things CBD oil could do for you…


many questions surround whether the benefits of CBD oil are as advertised…


There are many studies, including this one that detailed CBD oil does have an anti anxiety and antidepressant effect within the animal model, with another study furthering this conclusion by saying that it is indeed a very promising treatment for a lot of anxiety based disorders such as social anxiety or OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder).


CBD oil has also been shown to be very promising when it comes to general pain relief, with people studying from arthritis being able to use it to see a drop in the inflammation and pain that their arthritis is causing them. Sufferers of chronic pain in general and any conditions classified as such can gain massive benefits, as studies have shown that there is substantial evidence that CBD Oil is an effective treatment for chronic pain in adults.

Quitting Smoking

This is a strange one, but there is in-fact some very promising evidence from numerous studies that show that use of CBD oil could actually help people with quitting smoking! The study, done by “Addictive Behaviours” found that individuals who used a CBD inhaler were able to smoke fewer cigarettes while not having any additional cravings for nicotine, other studies show that CBD is also beneficial for people who abuse opioids.

This is fantastic news on its own, as current ways of quitting these substances other than going cold turkey, require either taking nicotine in some form for smoking, or another, controlled opiate for people addicted to substances like heroin, and while this may not be the answer on its own, anything that can help to curb addiction is a fantastic resource in my book!


Now, I’m not going to say that CBD oil is the miracle cure for cancer, but research has shown that it can certainly help, especially with the side effects of chemo. the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology also notes that CBD appears to block cancer cells from spreading around the body and invading an area entirely, meaning it is definitely worth looking into!


While seemingly a small thing, acne can absolutely ruin your teen years, caused by a mixture of inflammation and overworked sebaceous glands in the body, CBD oil, acts as both an anti inflammatory as well as studies showing that it can lower the production of sebum, which leads to acne, meaning that CBD oil could be the thing that leads to an acne free face.

To Conclude

CBD has a lot of uses, and they should definitely be looked into further!
