CBD is one of hundreds of naturally occurring compounds that has been found to be a natural remedy for a range of common ailments.  Also know as Cannabinoid, the research and various studies relating to the health benefits of CBD products continues to grow along with it, wider acceptance in traditional and alternative medical circles.

In this article, we want to share some of the common uses of CBD oils and other CBD products and how they may help to improve many health issues.

We are not doctors and we are not making any bold claims that CBD is a magic pill that will cure all of your ailments.  Nor do we recommend that you stop using prescribed medication without speaking with your GP. But hopefully you may find these studies and findings from some of the leading medical and pain relief specialists to be helpful in your journey to improving your long term health and lifestyle.

Using CBD has been found to help anxiety and depression


With the growing awareness of the importance of mental health in today's society, many people are looking for alternative treatments for anxiety and depression.

There is growing research that suggests CBD may help with many of the symptoms of mental health disorders without the need for a cocktail of pharmaceuticals.

The WHO (World Health Organization) have found that depression affects more that 264 million around the world of all ages, making it one of the leading causes of disability.

A recent study with 400 participants in New Zealand found that the majority of patients reported significant improvements to their depression and anxiety symptoms!

How CBD can help with Arthritis and Inflammatory diseases


Millions of people around the world suffer from chronic pain.  Whether it is arthritis, back pain, fibromyalgia, migraines and headaches, multiple sclerosis or another type of inflammatory condition, living with chronic pain can be debilitating for the sufferer.

Many studies have found that CBD (cannabinoids) may encourage the activities between the neurotransmitters and receptors and may have the ability to help reduce inflammation in the body.

One such study saw a significant drop in inflammatory pain due to arthritis in animals after just 4 days of CBD treatments.

Another study found that CBD may have a significant reduction in chronic pain, reduction of inflammation and improvements in sleep.

Using CBD has been found to help with neurological disorders like Alzheimer's and Dementia


Multiple Sclerosis, epilepsy, Alzheimer's, Dementia and Parkinson's diseases are some of the most worrying neurological disorders facing many western cultures.

There are studies being done relating to how CBD may positively effect the neurotransmitters in the brain and could help with treating neurological conditions.  Much of this research is in the early stages but any positive results should be considered a great step forward in treating such debilitating diseases.

A study in the US between 2014 and 2015 involving 214 patients with severe, intractable childhood-onset, treatment resistant epilepsy found a reduction of 36.5% in monthly motor seizures when treated with CBD over a 12 week period.

A further study by researchers at California's Salk Institute have found evidence that CBD may improve the health outcomes for people with dementia by reducing inflammation, reducing oxygen build up, working as a brain stimulant and neuroprotectant.

We are not suggesting CBD is a magic pill, but there seems to be some promising research relating to improvements in brain function and helping neurological disorders.

CBD is being used to help to treat insomnia and getting a better night sleep


Getting a good night's sleep is one of the most important things you can do for your health and wellbeing.  However, it is something that eludes many of us and can have a truly negative effect on the rest of our lives - from low energy, tiredness, irritability, lack of productivity and focus.  In fact, the BBC recently reported that over 30% of adults in the UK suffer from insomnia.  Many of us rely on pharmaceutical sleep aids to help us get a good night's sleep.  But that doesn't have to be the only solution.

Many of our customers have been using SMOKO CBD Oils and CBD Gummies to get a better night's sleep as it has been found to activate the CB1 receptors in the brain - which play a role in helping you fall asleep faster!

Can CBD help with Acne


Acne is believed to be caused by a number of factors like bacteria, genetics, inflammation or over production of the oily secretion sebum.

CBD oils are known for their anti-inflammatory properties. Some studies are currently looking at the effectiveness of CBD in the reduction of inflammation in the sebaceous glands that produce sebum.

CBD also has proven anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties as well which may help to reduce the appearance of acne by reducing infections on the skin due to pollutants and dirt build up.

Even taken orally, CBD may help to balance out stress levels and reduce inflammation, which may help with those pesky breakouts.
