CBD Could Replace The Following 5 Prescription Pills?
People have increasingly made a move from prescription pills to CBD Oil since 2015. In fact, people are increasingly using CBD Oil for medicinal purposes too as a more effective alternative to chemical based drugs.
Research on the effects of prescription pills CBD Oil is underway, but we are still learning more about how the effects of CBD Oil could be used for treating symptoms that are otherwise treated using pills. People have started treating common illnesses such as insomnia and anxiety using CBD Oil since it has non-existent side effects.
What is more important is the fact that people are treating particular symptoms using the right strains.
1. CBD Oil Vs Painkillers (Vicodin)
Ancient traditions have been using CBD Oil for a long time as a painkiller and people are starting to slowly make their way back to that. Painkillers such as Vicodin are laden with chemicals, and many Americans die every year as a result of painkiller overdoses. CBD Oil is quite an effective treatment option for those suffering from chronic pain since it does not have the physical side effects associated with chemical drugs and it is not dangerous to use.
2. CBD Oil Vs Anti-Anxiety Drugs (Xanax)
This one goes either way since some of the people suffering from anxiety reported an increase in anxiety after using CBD Oil while others did not. The key thing is to ensure that the purity of your CBD is over 80 percent.
3. CBD Oil Vs Sleep Aids (Ambien)
CBD is popularly used for medical reasons due to its assistance with insomnia. It is arguably actually more effective than pills such as Ambien while being less dangerous and addictive. It is also more fun too.
4. CBD Oil Vs Anti-Depressants (Zoloft)
While this does not necessarily work for everybody and while it is probably not recommended for more chronic cases, it is still worth trying. Side effects associated with antidepressant use are rather exhaustive, and many people develop addictions. Anti-depressants only sweep the symptoms under the rug, and patients often come off the medication in the same state they were when they started.
Using CBD Oil for depression takes a bit more time since it works more on the psychology than on the brain chemistry. It thus takes a bit more commitment and time coupled with a deeper understanding of how plants work compared to chemical drugs for depression.
5. CBD Oil Vs Stimulants (Adderall)
People suffering from ADHD or ADD regularly use stimulants like Adderall for treating their symptoms. This is another instance where CBD Oil works on the psychology but still treats symptoms effectively and quickly. It is more effective to use CBD Oil to treat ADHD than it is to treat depression using CBD Oil.
It is also likely here that a Sativa strain is more appropriate for people suffering from ADHD than the indicia strain since it is more stimulating naturally.
