Natural Healing Benefits and Applications of Medical Cannabis in Australia

Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is a chemical compound extracted from the cannabis plant. The cannabis plant contains CBD, a non-psychoactive compound and should not be confused with Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), a cannabis compound which gives users that “high” or psychoactive effect. Although THC has its own set of health benefits, a majority of the health benefits from the cannabis plant are derived from their potent CBD concentration. 

To clear a major misconception among the general public, the effects of CBD are different from THC. As mentioned earlier, it is a non-psychoactive substance. Hence, it does not give that “natural high” to users. It does not cause paranoia or anxiety when consumed even in higher concentrations. 

Research reveals that CBD in the form of medical cannabis oil has healing properties that can be used to manage and treat a wide array of medical conditions. It has anti-inflammatory, anti-seizure, anti-anxiety, and anti-tumour properties. There are still ongoing studies about the other positive characteristics of medical cannabis, but it has been proven that use and/or application of this compound is safe. 

The Healing Benefits of Medical Cannabis Oil

In Australia and other countries that have legalised cannabis for medical use, medical cannabis oil is being prescribed for people suffering from the following conditions:

  • Pain Relief 

Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, medical-grade cannabis oil is becoming a popular treatment and management alternative for inflammatory conditions and pain-associated disorders. 

  • Rich in Antioxidants

Medical cannabis is teeming with antioxidants. In fact, its antioxidant qualities are far greater than Vitamins C and E. 

Research suggests that the cannabis plant and subsequent cannabis products protect the brain from beta-amyloid toxicity making it a promising treatment for individuals diagnosed with Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s Diseases. 

  • Promising treatment for Multiple Sclerosis

People suffering from multiple sclerosis (MS) are now using medical cannabis oil to alleviate symptoms such as insomnia, urinary incontinence, and muscle tightness. 

  • Anxiety Relief 

One of the original uses of CBD in medicine is that of providing anxiety relief. It may be used recreationally by healthy people and prescribed among individuals suffering from social anxiety disorder. CBD also counteracts the anxiety caused by THC. 

Due to its relaxing and calming effects, CBD is being considered as an ideal treatment for behavioural disorders including panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic disorder just to name a few.
