How Does CBD Eliminate Seizures and Tremors?

To understand why CBD helps tremors, one has to understand CBD. CBD is a cannabinoid found in both Hemp and Marijuana. It’s not psychoactive. It does not get you high. It is the compound that got labeled the “medical compound” of Marijuana and Hemp. Marijuana strains such as Charlotte’s Web, Harlequin and ACDC contain high CBD. For people not wanting the THC, smoking Marijuana isn’t a great option. Products that contain only CBD work just as well, if not better than products that also contain THC.\

Synthetic drugs do not always break down and work well in the body. This is because there are no receptors for synthetic drugs. Although they may help, there are always disclaimers advising people of side effects. Xanax is a great example. Prescribed to help with tremors, but have terrible side effects. Such as cognitive dysfunction, memory impairment, decreased libido, and much more. CBD is natural, so it allows the body to have relief from Tremors without the side effects. This has shown to be the case because of the receptors recognizing the natural substance.

The human body contains receptors that recognize cannabinoids. CBD works on both the C1 and C2 receptors. This means that when one takes CBD, it goes straight to work. The body is able to recognize CBD because it is natural. Since CBD works on both C1 and C2 receptors, the brain is able to tell the CBD where to go. The brain is aware what nerves, joints, muscles, and so on is damaged and not in correct working order. When the receptors receive the CBD, it takes the molecule information and sends it to the areas in need. An example is a control group of ten people all with the same disease. Everyone can take CBD and have it work on different things for each of them. No two human bodies are exactly the same, so they do not react to things the same.Studies like the 2014 Brazil Study, have shown improvement on neurodegenerative diseases. Research and studies like this, show that CBD can help repair the body. Using CBD can repair damaged nerves and improve the quality of life. The removal of Hemp from American diets removed CBD. Research shows that the human body responds so well to CBD because it used to be in our bodies daily.

Among other things, CBD is an amazing natural anti-inflammatory. This means it goes to work on the muscles and tissues and calms them. The immediate relief is the pain. Then the CBD goes to work on repairing the damage. Taking CBD either by tincture, a cream or a vape allows the CBD to get into the body and do its “magic”. Being able to take CBD in different ways allows people to use it when and where they need it.

A tincture taken sublingually, taken under the tongue and swallowed. This allows the body to absorb it through the digestive system. Using a cream can help take down muscle inflammation. Most CBD creams are a “topical”, which affect the first few layers of skin. A vape liquid can be great, because it can it is used in an E Cigarette. Often times it is mixed with nicotine, which can help people quit smoking. Vaping CBD can be easy, when inhaled it goes to work.

When it comes to tremors, CBD helps because it calms the body. There are many videos on the internet right now of people with tremors taking CBD. The result is amazing. Within a short amount of time it is obvious that the CBD calms the tremors. With the relief of the tremors, one is able to live their life better. People are able to carry on their daily activities without the annoyance of the shaking. While it seems that CBD is just relieving the tremors, it is actually doing much more.

CBD is taking down the inflammation of the nerves, while also repairing them. Studies like the 2014 CBD Brazil study, shows significant improvement over time. People in the study had damaged nerves. After taking CBD the nerves were beginning to repair. The study also showed receptors in the brain firing that had not fired in years, due to damage from disease. This was after taking CBD on a consistent daily basis for a six month period.

Many things can cause tremors. The most common are, Parkinson’s Disease, Essential Tremors, and Multiple Sclerosis. Strokes, Alcoholism, Traumatic Brain Injuries, and Drug Induced Tremors also cause tremors. These all cause tremors, and can are combated using CBD. People who experience tremors have difficulty with day to day activities. Simple things such as drinking from a cup and eating become extraneous. Sometimes impossible. Tasks such as applying makeup or shaving become a pastime. Speech can become difficult, if voice-box or tongue become affected. Something as simple as signing your own name becomes a hassle.

Parkinson’s Disease and Multiple Sclerosis are both degenerative diseases. Parkinson’s is a disease where the body depletes itself of dopamine. Thus causing the body to shut itself down slowly and painfully. Multiple Sclerosis is when the bodies immune system slowly deteriorates the protective covering of the nerves. Which ultimately causes the body to shut down, again this is very painful. CBD has shown to combat both of these diseases. As well as repair damage done to the nerves.

Essential tremors a disorder in the nervous system that causes shaking. The hands are the most common body part that shake. This can affect arms, legs, head and voice. Because the hands and arms are mainly affected, tasks such as tying a shoelace can be very hard. Triggered and aggravated by things such as stress and changes in emotions. Caffeine, extreme temperatures, change in emotions and fatigue can also make symptoms worse. The Mayo Clinc reports people in the age group of over 60 have a higher rate of Essential tremors.

A stroke is when damage done to the brain due to the interruption of blood supply. After a stroke, many things can get affected in the body. Typical aftermath of a stroke is numbness or drooping of the face on one side. On that same side of the body there is generally weakness in the muscles. Difficulty with speech is common as well as tremors. The tremors are a long term side effect of a stroke. The tremors impact the individual because they cause difficulties in daily activities. Having issues with speech, movement as well as tremors can be a struggle. Using CBD over time can help with speech, movement and tremors! It is shown in studies that using CBD can reduce damage done to the nerves. In the case of a stroke, this damage done is because of insufficient blood supply.

Withdrawal is the connection between alcoholism and tremors. Years of alcohol abuse leads to alcohol addiction. The addiction to alcohol causes the body to shake. This happens because there is insufficient alcohol in the body.  Often times people who experience alcoholism treat their tremors with alcohol. This is a never ending cycle.

Brain injury resulting in tremors is not common. Yet, it does happen. Pre-dispositions, genetic or chemicals can cause tremors after someone suffers from a brain injury. When a traumatic brain injury occurs damage done is sudden to the brain. A jolt or blow to the head.  Most common are by sports injuries, vehicle crashes, falls and assaults. When the trauma occurs, the brain thrashes against the hard skull causing the injury. In minor and mild cases, one can recover from a brain injury rather fast. When moderate and severe injuries happen, the damage is much larger. With this kind of trauma, the brain swells. This causes the brain to push against the skull.  Which can cause more damage than the initial blow. Due to damage done to the brain and nerves, sometimes tremors are the aftermath. Not always a long term side effect, but in some cases can be permanent.

Drug induced tremors are exactly what they sound like. A tremor caused by taking a drug. This doesn’t always mean illegal drugs (although they can cause tremors). Often times prescription drugs have side effects that cause tremors. Antipsychotics and antidepressants can cause shaking. Often referred to as drug induced tremors. The most common affected are legs and arms. Medicines prescribed to treat conditions such as epilepsy and bipolar disorder can cause tremors. Medications used for asthma can also cause the body to have tremors. Many illegal drugs such as Cocaine, Heroin and Methamphetamine can cause tremors. Not only taking drugs, but a withdrawal from drugs and alcohol can also cause tremors. Withdrawal from hard drugs like heroin, cocaine, and meth can all cause tremors.
