We’re already confident about the health benefits of CBD oil, but we thought we’d turn to some of the biggest skeptics out there to see just what they’re saying. It’s always nice to know all sides of the story, even if you’re passionate about a certain point of view.
We weren’t really surprised by the results we came up with. Even CBD’s biggest detractors, such as the US government, have been forced to admit that the health benefits of CBD oil are undeniable.
Antioxidant properties among health benefits of CBD oil
Did you know that the US government actually holds a patent on CBD as a powerful antioxidant? Maybe one day, it will start making big bucks out of that patent, although we have to question how someone can patent a substance they didn’t discover and that comes from a natural plant that people have been using for thousands of years. But we’re not here to discuss ethics.
Antioxidants help our bodies to clean up free radicals, products of metabolism that can become toxic to our health if they aren’t gotten rid of. Antioxidants do that, and when it comes to CBD oil, we’re looking at something with so much oomph that the US government saw fit to patent it while maintaining that cannabis has not medicinal value.
We rest our case.
Supplement police! Everybody hands up!
We were interested to find a website called “Supplement Police”, but we must admit it may be a very useful service. People are only too ready to make claims about all sorts of things, even when there’s no evidence to back it up. Vulnerable people hear it, and all of a sudden they’re lashing out hundreds of dollars or euros for something that doesn’t work, never did, and never will. So we approached this website with trepidation. What would it say about CBD oil?
Here’s a little summary of some of the main points:
- “Doctors are starting to view CBD as a valid treatment method,” we thought so too, but it’s nice to see a website that’s there for its skepticism accepting this fact.
- “CBD doesn’t get you high.” Well, that’ why people choose CBD over THC, isn’t it?
- “CBD is well-tolerated and safe.” We’ve seen the scientific studies. It would be hard to disagree on that point.
Now the supplement police delve even deeper, and their primary reference is a literature review published by the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology. Now that’s a really good source, and we have to thank these “police” for being so thorough in their investigations.
Health benefits of CBD oil: guilty as charged
Here’s what they reported after viewing the accumulated literature:
Newsflash: the supplement police are even more adamant about CBD oil benefits than we are!
Where we have interpreted findings as may”, and “is believed to be” or even “shows promise”, this website comes right out and says it IS. CBD oil health benefits are still being researched, and we prefer to take a conservative view, but it’s interesting to see the skeptics even more sold on this product than we are!
