Individuals often add alternative or herbal supplements to their current treatment regimen as a way to facilitate their relief without experiencing further side effects. Even though medical treatments are personalized to each each individual, CBD oil seems to be getting more and more recognition in the medical community. It has been shown to alleviate symptoms of health issues such as migraines to severe illnesses like cancer. Because CBD offers benefits without any psychoactive side effects, it could be a potential substitute for people taking narcotics. It is also used by licensed health professionals like Dr. Mikhail Kogan, M.D., a medical director of the George Washington University, who is currently prescribing CBD oil to his patients. While claiming that CBD oil is safer than acetaminophen, Dr. Kogan has been writing scripts for cannabidiol since 2011, recommending drops under the tongue for administration.
Not only has CBD oil shown potential in relieving chronic pain and inflammatory issues, it can also be used right alongside most other medications, or even to taper off of them--just be sure to talk to your doctor first. CBD oil will work differently according to individual body chemistry, as well as the diverse endocannabidnoids(eCB) that are unique to each individual. With that said, it's important to talk with a licensed physician about taking any kind of supplement to see if it's the right path for you. With so much attention driven towards the research on CBD, evidence on its health benefits seems to be overwhelming in terms of what it is being used for.
