Can CBD Really Help With Tinnitus?
We know that CBD has numerous therapeutic benefits to boost both physical and mental health. Today, we will investigate whether CBD can make an impact on Tinnitus.
Tinnitus happens when you experience or hear ringing in one or both of your ears. It's important to realize that the noise you hear isn't caused by external factors and chances are high only you will be able to hear the noise.
Tinnitus isn't unusual and it happens to 15-20% of people and mostly happens to older adults.
Tinnitus is usually caused by hearing loss caused by aging, ear injury and problems with the circulatory system.
Symptoms include: hearing: buzzing, clicking, hissing, humming or roaring sound in your ears.
It's time to see an ENT specialist or your medical provider if you have a cold or suffer from respiratory infections and your tinnitus doesn't go away after a week or if you are having hearing loss or feeling dizzy due to tinnitus. By the way it is also possible to feel anxiety or depression from tinnitus.
Now can CBD treat tinnitus? Cannabidiol or CBD is a non-psychoactive component found in cannabis and hemp plants. Until today there are about 113 identified cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Two of the most well known cannabinoids are THC and CBD. Both THC and CBD have numerous therapeutic benefits for the body, but what sets them apart is THC has psychoactive properties that will alter the state of mind and cause you to feel "high" when used in high amounts. CBD does not have any psychoactive effects so you won't feel intoxicated.
Today, CBD is available as tincture or oil like Mellow Full Spectrum CBD Oil or Mellow CBD Oil CBD Isolate, topicals like Mellow CBD Soothing Balm Vanilla Scented, edibles, vaping oil, CBD capsules or cannabis flower buds.
There are three types of CBD: Full Spectrum CBD which includes CBD, THC, other cannabinoids like CBDa, THCa, CBN, CBC, CBG and including terpenes. Broad Spectrum CBD is similar to Full Spectrum, but it doesn't contain any THC. The last type of CBD is CBD Isolate. CBD Isolate is the purest form of CBD as it has been extracted to include only CBD and no other components from the cannabis plant.
When we consider the potential benefits of CBD towards tinnitus then we have to make distinction between THC and CBD.
Researchers have found that there are cannabinoid receptors in the brain area and in this case the area associated with hearing.
There is not enough research on the role of CBD and tinnitus, but from previous studies on the brain and how CBD can affect the system in our body we can presume there are some potential benefits for cannabis with tinnitus, especially CBD.
Researchers have found that THC may have a factor in causing tinnitus. Studies of THC done on animals and human test labs have linked THC with the development of tinnitus. They believed that THC can increase activity in the brain that is involved with hearing. As a result there is an increase in perception of sounds.
On the other hand, CBD has shown to have beneficial benefits in clinical trials making CBD Isolate to be safest and most effective when it comes to treatment of tinnitus than other cannabinoids.
Though CBD will not stop tinnitus, people that have used CBD for tinnitus have said that CBD has helped them to sleep and get more rest.
Tinnitus can affect many aspects of someone's life like lack of sleep, dealing with anxiety and tension and having poor mental health.
A lot of CBD products include more than one cannabinoid. Therefore it is essential that you study the ingredients before you buy your next CBD products. If you want to use CBD to help with your tinnitus condition then only choose products with CBD Isolate like Mellow CBD Oil available in 30ml bottles and comes in Natural and Orange flavors. Our CBD is mixed with MCT oil carriers to ensure that the CBD is absorbed into your body system quickly. Most important of all, Mellow CBD Oil is THC-free and suitable for people who do not want THC in their product.
Make sure that your CBD product is lab tested from a third-party independent lab and is free from harmful chemicals, heavy metals and microbial.
CBD does not not only helps you to sleep and get more rest, but CBD can treat insomnia, relieve pain, have anti-inflammatory properties, improve appetite, regulate mood, and improve your immune system all at the same time.
Apart from CBD, other treatments for tinnitus include prescription medication, hearing aids, cochlear implants and cognitive behavioral therapy to teach how to cope and manage hearing sounds.
