Essential Tremor and CBD Oil

July 11, 2018

CBD oil or Cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring cannabinoid from the cannabis plant. It was discovered in the 1940’s, and at first they did not think it was pharmaceutically active. It is one of the 104 chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant. As we know, there are psychoactive cannabinoids found in cannabis, however CBD is not psychoactive. Because it is not psychoactive, CBD is very appealing for those who are looking for relief from pain and other symptoms without the effects of marijuana or other man-made drugs that may provide the same effect. There are many medical and scientifically backed uses for CBD oil, but there are few related to essential tremor that may greatly benefit those with the condition. 

CBD can reduce anxiety and depression. Essential Tremor can be made much worse by stress and anxiety, so using CBD to calm those symptoms can in return calm essential tremor symptoms. Anxiety drugs that are commonly used can lead to a number of negative side effects like drowsiness and agitation. CBD oil can provide the relief from anxiety and depression without all the negative side effects. In many studies, CBD oil has even been used to treat things like anxiety and PTSD which can also lead to heightened essential tremor symptoms and more frequent rhythmic tremors. 

Researchers also have found that CBD has the ability to act on the endocannabinoid system and other brain signaling symptoms, and that it provides benefits to those with neurological disorders. Since it has been found that essential tremor is most likely a neurological disorder caused by misfires and confused communication with the nervous system and cerebellum, CBD can help prevent those tremor side effects from being so intense. 

Besides research, there are a lot of personal success stories online with information on how CBD oil has positively changed lives of those with essential tremor. There are a lot of different brands and manufacturers of CBD oil, so reading these reviews can also help you choose the correct product with positive reviews. It is important to choose a brand that is pure and provides a quality product. It can be a pricey fix, but has been found to be really effective for a lot of it’s users for a number of symptoms and conditions. There are a lot of products that are mixed, and therefore don’t provide the same relief.

Make sure that you check your local laws and regulations before using CBD oil. It is also important to consult a physician to make sure that the CBD will not interact with any other medications or treatment you are currently involved in. CBD can be a great tool for those with essential tremor, and should be considered to treat tremor symptoms as well as anxiety symptoms that may trigger tremors.
