CBD Health Benefits

What CBD can do for your health

What Captiva Health Products believes in

As recent scientific studies have shown, cannabidiol, or CBD, may have significant health benefits in addressing a wide range of medical conditions. 

CBD and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are two cannabinoids found within the cannabis plant that are showing great promise for therapeutic use. As the legalization of cannabis continues to spread, and as researchers continue to study the plant’s potential, the stigma associated with its use will continue to disappear. 

CBD Health Benefits

Here’s a look at the most intriguing and well-studied diseases and conditions CBD oil may be able to help manage by providing health benefits that did not exist before.

Feel Better Naturally


Our bodies produce cannabinoids naturally to interact with our endocannabinoid system, but sometimes our bodies can’t regulate enough of our own endocannabinoids to ensure they are doing their job properly. Stress, illness, and even extended changes in mood can all impact how your body naturally regulates its own cannabinoids.

Supplementing the body with CBD, a cannabinoid similar to what our body produces naturally,  is what many believe helps the body function easier. It promotes general wellness, and even provides relief for common but serious symptoms and conditions. The health and wellness community is excited about the benefits of CBD, there are more studies and clinical trials that are starting to reinforce the validity of these benefits.

CBD for Inflammation

Inflammatory conditions like arthritis, lupus, irritable bowel syndrome, eczema can be debilitating. Most medical solutions attempt to treat and control the symptoms without addressing the underlying causes of the inflammation. CBD helps alleviate those painful symptoms while also altering the mechanisms responsible for the inflammation. 

CB2 receptors help to regulate our body’s natural immune response. Inflammation is an immune response to injury, foreign bacteria, and viruses. Chronic inflammation occurs when the immune system can no longer recognize the body’s natural responses and begins to attack normal, healthy cells, leading to the possible progression or development of certain diseases.

CBD can stop these inappropriate immune responses before they begin. For example, cytokines are small proteins released by immune cells and are involved in initiating inflammation. CBD works to suppress cytokine production while boosting T-regulatory cells (T-regs). T-regs work to modulate the immune system and prevent autoimmune diseases.

CBD for Anxiety Relief

CBD may alleviate severe social anxiety. Generalized Social Anxiety Disorder, or SAD, is one of the most common forms of anxiety disorders that impair quality of life.

In a 2011 study, scientists wanted to study the effects of CBD on people with SAD. The scientists selected 24 people with this condition who had never received treatment for SAD then divided participants into two groups. One group received 600 mg of CBD, while the control group received a placebo. The scientists then asked study participants to take part in a simulated public speaking test while researchers measured blood pressure, heart rate, and other measurements of physiological and psychological stress.


The CBD group showed significantly reduced levels of anxiety, cognitive impairment, and discomfort during their speech performance. In comparison, those in the placebo group presented the opposite.

Considering anxiety and depression in general, CBD may be able to help by targeting the source of the issue.

Low levels of serotonin is linked to depression and anxiety. CBD activates a serotonin receptor called 5-HT1A, which increases serotonin levels in the brain. CBD also inhibits the re-uptake of neurotransmitters adenosine and anandamide, both known to elevate mood and limit the effects of anxiety.

CBD for Pain Relief

One of the greatest benefits of CBD oil is its ability to relieve pain. Studies have found CBD to be effective in treating pain from a wide range of conditions including arthritis, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injuries, back pain and muscle spasms and many more. Studies have also found CBD to be effective in reducing the pain, spasms, and involuntary movements in individuals with Parkinson’s Disease. 

Significant amounts of research have shown CBD to have a major impact on the glycine receptors found in the central nervous system. These receptors play a key role in our perception of pain. CBD increases the effect of glycine receptors, and in doing so, decreases our sensation of pain. As mentioned above, CBD also has an anti-inflammatory effect that reduces redness and swelling.

CBD for Cancer Patients

Some studies have found that CBD can reduce the growth of cancer cells. One of the ways CBD may do this is through antagonizing the GPR55 receptors. When active, these receptors have been shown to promote the growth of cancer cells. One particular study suggests that CBD oil can “turn off” the ID-1 gene, the gene responsible for the spread of breast cancer. 

CBD may also be able to reduce the spread of cancer through its effects on cellular function. While the mechanisms are still being investigated, CBD has been shown to play a role in apoptosis, or cell death, of cancerous cells, preventing them from further replicating and spreading.

There is a lot more research left to be done in this area, but the fact that CBD can reduce inflammation in the body and alter the reproduction of certain cells offers some hope.  This is very exciting, and is one of the most promising areas of research for CBD. 

Finally, CBD oil may help manage the side effects of cancer treatments. Because of its pain-relieving properties, CBD may be able to help mitigate the painful after-effects of chemo and radiation treatments. There have also been studies examining cannabidiol’s ability to reduce anticipatory nausea, often experienced by cancer patients prior to treatment.

CBD's Antipsychotic and Neuroprotective Properties

CBD is showing great potential as an antipsychotic agent and a neuroprotectant. More study is required to understand the exact reasons for this effect, but it may have something to do with the way CBD prevents the breakdown of the endocannabinoid anandamide. 

Another potential reasons for CBD’s antipsychotic effect could be its ability to bind with the dopamine D2 receptor. This is a receptor targeted by commonly prescribed antipsychotic medications. 

These antipsychotic properties are not just important for individuals with schizophrenia, but can also impact those with bipolar disorder, and those experiencing psychosis related to Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, or alcohol and drug addiction.

CBD continues to surprise medical researchers with the variety of common health benefits it provides. An increasing number of scientists, physicians and consumers are learning about these health benefits and incorporating CBD into a healthy lifestyle plan.

CBD vs. Prescription Medications

Research into the health benefits of CBD is vast and ongoing, but indications suggest that CBD may be a practical and more natural solution to a wide range of medical conditions. This fact is particularly important when you consider the impact of prescription drugs.

Opioids are often used to treat chronic pain, are habit forming and carry a significant risk of dependency and overdose. They can, and usually do, produce nasty withdrawal symptoms. 

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like aspirin or ibuprofen, are useful in treating minor aches and pains but they have their limits. They are not effective at treating chronic or extreme pain and long term use carries significant risks. Overuse of this common remedy can lead to peptic ulcers, acute renal failure, and stroke or myocardial infarction. 

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs)- like Lexipro and vortioxetine are used to treat depression and anxiety. These powerful, synthetic drugs carry potentially harmful side effects including insomnia, dry mouth, a reduced sex drive, diarrhea, and sometimes lead to suicidal tendencies. Similarly, anti-psychotic medications come with risks including low blood pressure, vomiting, constipation, tremors, seizures, drowsiness and restlessness. 

CBD products are in stark contrast to the drugs mentioned above, and may be able to provide a natural and safe alternative! With no known side effects, the World Health Organization has stated, “CBD is generally well tolerated with a good safety profile.” Treating certain medical conditions can be complicated, but if there is a safer more natural way, wouldn’t you want to try it?

CBD for Acne

Because, CBD acts to reduce inflammation, it can also help reduce the appearance of acne. Sebum is an oily substance produced in the body to help hydrate the skin. Too much sebum can cause acne. One study found that CBD oil prevented over-activity in the sebaceous glands leading to clearer, less oily skin.

For this reason, many skin care and beauty brands are starting to incorporate CBD into their products.

CBD for general wellness

Users claim CBD helps them with a whole host of symptoms from anxiety to chronic pain. However, you don’t have to take CBD for something specific. Many people take take it just to promote everyday general wellness.  When taken on a daily basis these products contribute to an overall feeling of wellness, increased energy and vigor, and much better sleep quality.

In the 1990s, studies identified CBD as a potential neuroprotective antioxidant, promoting natural processes that optimize brain health. We also see research showing CBD has therapeutic potential for relief of inflammation and oxidative stress, anxiety, various types of pain, among countless others.

In fact, research from 2010 finds that CBD may even have positive neurogenic effects, even helping with the maturation and survival of new neurons in the brain. These are just some of the many promising areas of general wellness that cannabidiol is impacting. As more research is published, the benefits of CBD will become mainstream.
