Study Unveils Hemp Could Treat These 10 Chronic Conditions



Benefits of Using Hemp Oil

Cannabidiol (Hemp) has become the trending topic throughout this year after being recognized that it has essential anti-inflammatory properties and its potential to cure numerous intractable diseases. The information on Hemp has become so trendy that the subject matter is currently being examined and used for various medical conditions including the irritable bowel disorders and pain relief.

Definition of Hemp

Hemp can be defined as the natural cannabinoids located in the Cannabis Sativa plant. Unlike the THC, which is well-known to generate a psychoactive effect, Hemp does not lead to a ‘high’ effect and hence, has been classified as a medical component that can cure an array of medical conditions.

A previous study conducted in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology established that Hemp possesses exceptional healing elements including the following;

  • Antiemetic: treats nausea and vomiting conditions
  • Anti-tumoral/Anti-cancer: curbs the growth of tumor and cancer cells
  • Anti-inflammatory: battles the inflammatory disorders
  • Anticonvulsant: reduces seizure actions
  • Antipsychotic: fights the chronic psychosis disorders
  • Anti-oxidant: cures the neurodegenerative conditions
  • Anxiolytic/Anti-depressant: eliminates anxiety and depression problems

Hemp Oil Legal Status 

Hemp Oil found in most retail stores are usually developed from Hemp, although if one is in a medical or recreational state, they can use the Hemp Oil made from the Marijuana plant. The difference is that Hemp plants are planted in different environments compared to the Marijuana plants. Also, Hemp plants are stalky and tall and are planted in fields that grow corn. Marijuana plants, on the other hand, are stubbier and have a shorter stem.

Another difference between the two plants is that Marijuana is usually manufactured under conditions that enable the THC to be extremely present in the plant component, while Hemp has no traces of THC but instead, it has other elements including the phytocannabinoids, Hemp, and terpenes.

From the legal perspective, marijuana plant is still classified as a schedule 1 drug which means it’s illegal on the Federal grounds in the US. However, independent states across the US and other countries have launched laws to legalize the use of weed for medical and recreational purposes such as the California state. This allows people living within the medical state to easily access the Hemp Oil for specified treatments.

According to the, the US Federal law restricts American farmers from growing Hemp for commercial purposes, but the selling of imported, low THC and industrial Hemp produce is partly allowed in the US. However, the products must originate from the seed or the stalk of the plant but not from leaves or flowers. Hence, people living in restricted states must look for information on where to purchase the imported Hemp Oil.

In the past, it was not easy to find information on medical cannabis. But as many states continue to approve the use of Hemp for medical and recreational use, there are numerous companies that are availing huge information on to access the plant including the MMJ Reporter,  and much more. These companies are significantly paving way for optional medical health that has no side effects compared to the traditional prescription medications. It’s now easy to access the Hemp Oil in the US as the product is usually shipped to the patient’s doorstep.

Whether the marijuana remains illegal or it’s approved, it seems to be effective for millions of people living in the U.S. Hemp Oil is well-known for the following ailments:

  1. Tumors and cancer cells conditions
  2. Epilepsy and other neurological conditions
  3. Anxiety, Stress relief and depression problems
  4. Arthritis
  5. Insomnia disorders
  6. Chronic Pain and inflammation
  7. PTSD
  8. Multiple Sclerosis
  9. Diabetes conditions

Benefits of CBD and Glaucoma



CBD oil found itself linked permanently with the treatment of eye diseases back in 1976. An octogenarian called David Randall found that whenever he used cannabis, his eye disease gradually got better, and the reverse was true when he stopped. Is there any truth to his claim or was it just that – an unscientific shot in the dark that gained way too much attention?


What is Glaucoma?


Glaucoma is a condition caused by a buildup of aqueous humor in the eye. Put simply, the liquid that keeps your eyes moist need to drain away somehow. Glaucoma is a condition where this doesn’t happen naturally due to blockage of the eyes’ drainage channels. This is usually accompanied by the deterioration of the optic nerve and high fluid pressure at the front part of the eye. If left untreated, it could lead to a gradual loss of vision and irreversible damage.


Modern treatment includes surgery, microsurgery, eye drop medication, and, more recently, the use of marijuana or hemp-based products like hemp extract and CBD oil.


Using CBD for Glaucoma


Despite numerous existing alternative methods for treating glaucoma, each of them come with their own complications. Eye drops tend to cause a number of reactions and allergies, and surgeries often face complications and are expensive. A relatively recent addition to the list of acceptable methods of treating the disease includes using CBD.


CBD has an arguable advantage over conventional methods since there is no known allergic reaction to CBD. It doesn’t react with any drugs that are readily available on the market, doesn’t have any serious side-effects and is relatively cheap. It also sets itself apart from marijuana since it contains little to no THC – meaning being that it causes no psychoactive reactions in the body. CBD extracted from the hemp plant is also legal in every state in the US.


Historically speaking, marijuana has always been in the spotlight due to its observable effects on the treatment of various ailments. Of particular importance has always been its tendency to decrease blood pressure, which, in turn, leads to a decrease in ocular pressure on the blood vessels. Recent studies have established this to be true of CBD also.


CBD has a number of incredible effects on the human body. This includes antioxidants, pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties. The current craze around it is only dampened by those who worry that inhalation of CBD, either via vaping or smoking hemp oil is going to have negative side-effects. The argument goes that at the end of the day, inhaling combustible materials is going to take its toll on the throat and lungs. This may be true, but it’s greatly alleviated by the fact that there are a dozen different ways to take CBD.


In fact, most major CBD outlets like Greenland Farms advise taking in CBD using a CBD tincture or dropper, since some people’s eyes are sensitive to vape smoke.


Are there risks?


Right before you jump onto the CBD train to relieve glaucoma symptoms, it’s important to understand that CBD isn’t a bulletproof treatment. For a number of select individuals, it turns out CBD may actually counteract the relief normally believed to be caused by THC.


For about 20 years, clinical trials have indicated that CBD is either an active ingredient in the treatment of glaucoma or, at worst, is just inactive. A study published in the Journal of Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science in 2018 disputes this. According to their findings, CBD may actually increase ocular pressure on the optic nerve, worsening glaucoma.


The conflicting findings means more research needs to be carried out before CBD can either be officially ruled out as a means of treatment or officially acknowledged. Ultimately, the implication is that CBD should not be used in self-treatment without consulting a doctor first. Special groups of people like pregnant mothers and children should also avoid using CBD.
