Are you feeling a bit “CBD crazy”?
Have you felt you are being pushed and pulled in a tug-of-war by various sources on the potential harms and extraordinary benefits of this “miracle elixir”?
I’ve been swimming in the research on it for over nine weeks now, and I too am a bit cannabinoid cross-eyed!
Though our journey with it is almost over, with everything I’ve covered you now have most of the resources to help you decipher the facts from the fiction on this cannabis component.
Note: If you missed any part in my series, I recently provided this summary on safety and other aspects to consider when deciphering if CBD oil is right for you.
Closing in on Assessing the Clinical Efficacy of CBD Oil
With the popularity of CBD, research has exploded on it and many clinical trials are currently underway or completed. As stated, my upcoming review will be focused on three areas of study based on common uses: pain, mood, and neurological effects.
Last week, I started this review on CBD and its accompanying cannabis constituents. I began with discussing the benefits of full spectrum hemp products. This was to highlight how the inclusion of all the additional compounds from this plant may broaden its wellness applications.
This week was supposed to be the final article but, alas, as I was compiling the reviews of clinical studies, I noticed that two factors kept popping up.
Ethically, I felt these needed to be addressed so that as you read more about CBD, you will not be bamboozled. These two aspects are also helpful in providing an overview of the clinical science of CBD in the main areas of its efficacy. These are:
- Differences in Petri Dishes, Animal Trials, and Human Studies
- The Importance of Delivery, Dosages, and Standards
