Symptoms that can be relieved by CBD products

Cannabis oil is not a new product, but it is relatively new on the CBD South Africa market. CBD oil has become popular as a daily natural supplement with properties that may provide relief to other health-related symptoms for some people.

Cannabinoids found in the CBD oil available for sale in South Africa and around the world are rich in vitamins, minerals, proteins, enzymes, polyphenol antioxidants, fatty acids and other nutrients from the hemp plant. And there are no THC cannabinoids present from which a “high” or hallucinogenic encounters are experienced.

CBD oil, capsules, balms and other products are safe for the entire family, including your pets, which contributes to its popularity. And while there are still some people who are hesitant about the origins of CBD oil and the other products that are associated with that plant, CBD oil is all about providing healthy cannabinoids that complement the existing cannabinoids (endocannabinoids) in our bodies. Our body's endocannabinoid system (ECS) is responsible for regulating sleep, pain and our immune system’s responses.    

It's because of these properties that CBD oil available in South Africa (and related products) have helped South Africans treat their symptoms. And because it’s a completely natural product, people are more inclined to use CBD products as an alternative to pharmaceutical products.

Please be advised that CBD oil is in no way claiming to be a cure for any of the below-mentioned symptoms or illnesses, but is merely a supplementary product through which relief has been a positive side effect in some studies. Every person may have a different reaction to CBD products and, like most remedies, there may be side effects affected by dosage and product.



CBD oil has been used for pain management related to a variety of illnesses. Scientists and medical professionals believe CBD products manage to do so by stopping the body from absorbing the pain regulating compound anandamide through your ECS. This means that there will be higher levels of anandamide in your bloodstream which could be the reason why people experience less pain after using CBD products.

Specific cases where CBD oil has been used to treat the symptom of pain are in arthritis patients, people with chronic pain, multiple sclerosis patients and people with muscle or spinal injury pain. CBD oil has also been said to have anti-inflammatory properties which can also be linked to pain relief.  



Serotonin is a chemical compound in your body that acts as a natural mood stabiliser. When a person has low levels of serotonin in their system, they are associated with being depressed, anxious or mentally unstable.

The way that CBD oil works with the CB1 brain receptor is said to affect serotonin levels and, therefore, play a role in relieving anxiety, post-traumatic stress and depression symptoms. Your mental health is incredibly important and if you know you’re prone to anxiety attacks, you should consult with your general practitioner about using CBD oil as a natural supplement to try and relief those episodes.



Epilepsy is a neurological, seizure disorder and the type of seizures experienced can vary from person to person. And while there are medications that can be prescribed to manage and treat the seizing episodes, there is no cure as of yet.

There have been studies where CBD oil has been used as a supplement to epileptic medication and has helped relieve epileptic patients from seizures. In June 2018, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has stated the approval of one CBD-based medication to be used specifically in the treatment of two severe types of epilepsy (Lennox-Gastaut and Dravet syndrome) for patients from two years old and older.



It’s no surprise that CBD oil has been found useful in acne and skin treatment. There are so many natural ingredients and alternatives being introduced to skincare that CBD was bound to be a popular skin supplement to your usual products.

.Once again, the anti-inflammatory properties naturally occurring in CBD helps in this regard. It is also said to have properties that reduce the production of sebum in the sebaceous glands (that usually build up to form acne). CBD oil and balms are the types of products that would be best suited for direct application to the area affected by acne.  


Sleep disorders

Another symptom that can be relieved by CBD products is sleep apnea and other sleep disorders. The effects of CBD on serotonin levels in the brain for relief from anxiety works the same way for serotonin levels throughout the rest of the body. And for sleep apnea, that means the serotonin that affects the sleep-wake cycle and nausea.

CBD oil can help your body gain control of its receptors and aid restful sleep as relief from most sleep disorders. If you take small doses of CBD oil during the day as your energy and nutrient supplement, a larger dose in the evening can work to help you sleep.
There are benefits to using CBD oil and products as a supplement, but they can also potentially work as a natural treatment alternative for common symptoms.
