Cannabis oil is a highly effective substance that has been shown to have a variety of uses, from treating neuropathic pain to potentially slowing the spread of ovarian cancer. To achieve the most effective cannabis oil, those with certain conditions or symptoms need to seek broad-spectrum cannabis oil products.
These products contain CBD and other cannabinoids, which may play a role in relief from certain symptoms. Broad spectrum CBC extracts are also more likely to produce greater anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects, thus reducing the overall discomfort that an individual is experiencing. Below are elements of broad-spectrum cannabis oil that can make a difference in your experience:
Binding of Cannabinoids to Receptors Within the Body
Cannabis contains several cannabinoids, which can interact with receptors, whether in the brain, organs, or the skin. When THC binds to cannabinoid one (CB1) receptors, it produces euphoric effects along with pain relief. CB2 receptor binding produces less psychoactive effects but greater anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects.
The interaction between cannabinoids and receptors within the body makes cannabis oil so effective in treating certain conditions. Concentrated cannabis oils contain high THC and other cannabinoids to produce the most effective treatment for certain conditions and symptoms.
Antioxidant Effects of Cannabinoids
Many antioxidants exist in nature, some more effective than others at neutralizing free radicals. It has been shown that cannabinoids such as THC and CBD may possess antioxidant properties that make them useful in treating several conditions where oxidative damage plays a role. One example is Parkinson’s disease, which is caused by an accumulation of specific types of protein.
Free radicals interact with these proteins resulting in cell damage, leading to the visible symptoms of Parkinson’s. THC has been shown to slow the accumulation of these proteins by preventing them from binding together. As a result, free radicals are prevented from causing cell damage. Evidence also indicates that CBD removes toxins through the induction of oxidative stress enzymes in liver cells which can help protect against damage caused by alcohol.
