Positive and Negative CBD Effects

By now, everyone has heard about the potential effects of CBD, but very few have taken the step to learn a little more about them. That is why we have decided to put together this page where we want to explain the effects of CBD in a clear and simple, yet detailed way.

What is CBD?

CBD or cannabidiol is a compound from the Hemp Sativa plant. Currently, there is still a lot of research to be done on its effects, but the information that is available so far suggests that it could be a very beneficial product for many types of problems including pain, inflammation, insomnia, anxiety, and many others.

One of the main factors to know about the effects when buying CBD is that it does not produce psychotropic effects as does THC, which is also found in the hemp plant and with which it is often associated.

Below, we are going to tell you about the adverse effects and the potential benefits that CBD could provide.

7 potential therapeutic benefits of CBD

The potential beneficial effects of CBD are very important, as they relate to problems that greatly affect people’s quality of life. We are not in a position to assure you that CBD will be the definitive solution, but we can say that the studies so far are optimistic about it.

Anxiety and stress

Anxiety and stress are very disabling problems and are sometimes seen in society as a weakness rather than a disease, which makes the problem even worse.

The effects of CBD seem to include a sense of relaxation that can help deal with situations that create stress or anxiety or simply reduce their levels due to the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Click here for more information on CBD and anxiety.


Inflammation is our body’s response to deal with problems. Basically, the body increases the blood supply to an area to try to improve its situation (although inflammation can also be due to other causes).

However, excessive inflammation can be very damaging to many different organs and it seems that CBD can help with this. This article is more detailed on anti-inflammatory CBD.


The effects of CBD as an anticonvulsant and more specifically against epilepsy are so proven that, in Spain, the drug Epidyolex from Jazz Pharmaceuticals is approved for marketing.

To sleep

The ability of CBD to influence the production of anandamide and its slow release process in the body, allows it to have significant effects on people’s sleep. Several scientific studies have found that this substance can be beneficial in treating a disease with multiple causes and difficult treatment such as insomnia.

It is also presumed that thanks to CBD it is possible to regulate the circadian sleep-wake cycle, which in turn ensures a better quality rest. And there is increasing evidence of direct action on the REM sleep phase, allowing it to increase in its latency and being able to treat a behavioral disorder that generates nightmares.

Weight loss

Although many studies have pointed to increased appetite as one of the possible effects of CBD, others point to its ability to treat obesity. The reason is that it increases lipolysis (a process that converts fat into energy), glucose uptake (the use of sugar in the muscles), and mitochondrial activity (decreasing the accumulation of fat in the tissues).

As a result, cannabidiol is also being valued for the treatment of other diseases associated with obesity and insulin resistance such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.


Epilepsy is a very difficult disease to treat, CBD has been shown to be one of the substances that can reduce the frequency of seizures. This has brought relief to many people suffering from epilepsy.

This approval by the scientific community has become palpable in the approval (by the American FDA and the AEMPS in Spain) of the first CBD-based medicine: Epidiolex. The formula is especially aimed at children suffering from Dravet and Lennox-Gastault syndromes from a very early age. For more tips and information, visit Hemponix to know more.


One of the most commented effects of CBD is those related to the treatment of depression. The truth is that science has been able to see a possible benefit of this cannabinoid in people’s mental health, especially if we talk about a short-term treatment, that is, for acute depression.
