Even more ways that people have found CBD useful:

As more states are starting to lean towards legalization, there has been a considerable shift when it comes to discussion about the cannabinoid: CBD. In just a few years, scientists have been able to find multiple ways in which CBD can be used. 

Despite this growing awareness for more conventional uses of CBD oil, there have been some unorthodox ways that CBD oil has been used. 

Here are just some of the different ways that people have reported to have had results using CBD:

Quit Smoking 

Some researchers have found that the nicotine in cigarettes when in the body, spends a lot of its time interacting with the endocannabinoid system. Naturally, because CBD binds to the receptors in a cannabinoid system, it is believed that by using CBD oil, the cravings can be substantially decreased. This is because it’s “replacing” the interactions the cannabinoid system would normally get from the nicotine. In one double-blind study, it was found that the people who were treated with CBD oil smoked 40% less tobacco than the people on the placebo. 

High Heel Pain 

Some Celebrities swear they use CBD oil when they have red carpet events they need to attend. Even though there are no active studies to high heeled shoes, specifically, other studies have shown it be effective because CBD contains anti-inflammatory properties to help ease the discomfort from wearing heels for too long. 

Post Exercise Cramping

When used, the anti-inflammatory properties found in CBD trigger a response in the CB2 receptors in the endocannabinoid system. This, then, triggers a response from the immune system that sends relief to the area that is affected by the swelling. 

No matter why you may be considering infusing CBD into your wellness routine, it is always good practice to talk to your healthcare provider to make sure that CBD is potentially right for you and your lifestyle. It’s clear by this list of expanded CBD potential uses that we are only at the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the potential of this cannabinoid.
