The Benefits of CBD & Cannabis
You have probably seen reports in the news, online, and on social media about the amazing health benefits of CBD and medical marijuana. It’s important to educate yourself so you have a clear picture of what these substances may be able to do for you. There are ongoing studies throughout the US, and at Cougar Cannabis we are continuing to stay on top of the latest information so that we can offer you guidance when you visit our Roseburg, OR, store.
CBD vs. THC
CBD (Cannabidiol) and THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) are both components of marijuana. CBD and THC both offer numerous health benefits, but CBD does so without the psychoactive effects of THC. We have both CBD and THC products available on our menu, so we can meet the needs of all of our clients.
Health Effects of CBD
Medical research is ongoing as scientists delve into the health benefits of CBD. Recently, the first medication that includes CBD was approved by the FDA for the treatment of certain severe childhood seizure disorders. Studies are being conducted to determine the usefulness of CBD in medications for schizophrenia, osteoarthritis pain, relief of anxiety, ovarian cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, and more.
Patients report relief of migraine pain, sciatica, chronic back pain, and arthritis. Others say they felt a definite decrease in social anxiety. Still more people say CBD relieves depression, alleviates the side effects of cancer treatment, offers properties that lower blood pressure, and may even reduce the incidence of diabetes.
While science works to catch up with what CBD users are experiencing, the staff at Cougar Cannabis will continue to educate ourselves on the latest research and offer only the highest-level products to our clients.
