Many people have mixed feelings about whether or not CBD works. Is there research to support the millions of CBD claims? The short answer is that there is very little research out there. However, there have been a few studies completed and articles published by medical professionals.

Northwestern Medicine published an article stating that CBD oil is “promising, but not yet proven.” Chief Medical Officer and Senior Vice President of Northwestern Medicine, James G. Adams, MD is quoted as saying, “The benefits include a couple of very rare types of seizures.” The article went on to state that “the most significant research supports the use of CBD oil for those who experience seizures.” In 2018, the FDA approached a CBD oral solution to treat people with one of two rare forms of epilepsy. Scientists believe the CBD oil slows down the messages being sent to the brain, altering calcium levels in brain cells and decreasing inflammation in the brain resulting in suppressed seizures.

Another unexpected product of CBD is CBD-infused skincare products. This area also has limited research; many are reaping both the health and beauty benefits of such products. Researchers believe that when CBD is applied to the skin’s surface, it supports your body’s own natural process to give you a smoother, clearer, and calmer complexion. Today published an article stating that the “chemical component found in marijuana and hemp, has some big benefits,” quoted by dermatologist Patricia Farris. She recently spoke about CBD at the American Academy of Dermatology annual meeting. She stated that it is a strong antioxidant, even stronger than vitamin C and E. It lends itself to being more like a botanical antioxidant protecting collagen and stopping DNA damage. It also acts as an anti-inflammatory for people with rosacea, eczema or acne.
