Does cannabis health really help with excessive sweating…?
Let’s us try to find out!
There are different online posts, reddit forums and other question/answer platforms where people have posted their experience with using CBD oil for managing the symptoms of hyperhidrosis.
Not to mention that majority of the users have reported it to work…
Before that let me explain what CBD oil, is?
What Is CBD Oil?
CBD is a substance which is derived from cannabis plant is most commonly called cannabidiol. Along with CBD, THC is also derived from the same plant and it gets you high.
Needless to say, CBD Oil also has some concentration of THC present in it but it is not enough to get you high.
Using cannabis oil won’t have any psychoactive effects on your body.
To be honest, the topic of CBD oil has been very trendy nowadays as it is helping people overcome anxiety, chronic pain, cancer, diabetes, broken or damaged bones, epilepsy and several other medical conditions.
With all that, there have been talks about how CBD oil is helping in overcoming the symptoms of hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating.
CBD Oil For Excessive Sweating
It is important to note here that it is a very new topic and there is not enough study, research or evidence that supports the fact.
Most of the findings that you will find online in forums, question/answer sites and videos are all qualitative and based entirely on personal experience. In simple, there isn’t enough scientific research on this topic.
However, the good news is researchers are now working on it to learn more about its effects on overcoming symptoms of excessive sweating.
How It Can Help If Used?
While CBD helps with stress, anxiety, diabetes and a number of other health conditions, it also has anti-inflammatory impact on your body.
Because of this, it is believed that the use of CBD oil will help reduce the activity of sweat glands in individuals who suffer with excessive sweating.
Ultimately, it will reduce the amount of sweat that your body produces. This means, it would eventually help you with hyperhidrosis.
Once again I would mention here that there is no scientific evidence which shows and correlation between the use of CBD oil and reduced sweat.
However, if you visit some popular online forums like reddit, especially the r/hyperhidrosis and r/cbd sub-reddit, you will find a handful amount of post where people have reported that CBD oil has actually heled them.
It might be possible that individuals who are currently using it, it could be placebo. But what most of the people say that the anti-inflammatory and anxiety reducing features of CBD oil is what has helped them manage and reduce excessive sweating.
Basically, anxiety is responsible for stimulating your sympathetic nervous system. When this happens, it will stimulate your sweat gland, ultimately leading to sweat. If you already have hyperhidrosis and also suffer with anxiety, the condition can get much worse.
Practically that does make sense but provided the fact that there is not enough scientific evidence on it, we cannot draw a solid conclusion here.
While CBD Oil is safe to use and has several health benefits, but if you want to use it to help with excessive sweating, you should wait for some scientific evidence supporting it.
