    Understanding CBD

    Cannabidiol (CBD) is a chemical compound (cannabinoid) found in the cannabis plant. Most people are drawn to it since it has no intoxicating effects. Furthermore, it has various benefits, including easing pain, relieving anxiety and depression, improving skin conditions, and decreasing inflammation.

    CBD is available in various forms, including CBD-infused oils, balms, salves, tinctures, topicals, and edibles like gummies. Types of CBD include;

    • Full spectrum: It has all the compounds available in the cannabis plant, such as cannabinol (CBN), cannabigerol (CBG), and terpenes. It also has THC, but its levels are less than 0.3 percent hence safe to consume.
    • Broad spectrum: It has most of the compounds available in the cannabis plant, excluding THC. Therefore, it is a good option for individuals who do not want to get the psychoactive effect of THC.
    • Isolate CBD is the purest form of CBD since all other cannabinoids (except CBD) are extracted from the plant. It is a good choice for individuals who only want to get the benefits of CBD.

    Benefits of CBD Peanut Butter Bars

    Relieves Anxiety

    According to Skelley et al. (2020), CBD helps alleviate anxiety by changing how the brain receptors respond to serotonin, a chemical linked to your mental health. Receptors are small proteins in the cells responsible for trimming chemical messages in different cells in the body to help them respond to various stimuli. CBD helps relieve anxiety in various ways, such as:

    • Alleviating stress.
    • Treating sleep disorders like insomnia.
    • Improving post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms.

    Pain Relief

    Since CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid receptors of the body (ECS), its effects on the CB1 and CB2 receptors may help relieve pain. Eskander et al. (2020) stated that pre-clinical studies show that CBD can help in dealing with pain related to:

    Researchers say that since CBD has anti-inflammatory properties, it helps relieve pain. However, more studies are required to prove these pain management claims.


    Researchers are looking into the CB1 receptor, located in the central nervous system (CNS), to learn how CBD can help individuals with neurodegenerative disorders like; stroke, Alzheimer's disease, and multiple sclerosis, which make the brain and nerves degenerate over time.

    Campos et al. (2016) noted that CBD oil is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent that helps reduce inflammation and improves neurodegenerative symptoms.

    Cancer Treatment

    Various studies have investigated CBD's role in obstructing cancer cell growth in its early stages. According to the National Cancer Institute, CBD may help reduce cancer treatment and may also deal with chemotherapy side effects like nausea and vomiting. However, CBD as a cancer treatment has not been fully approved. Seltzer et al. (2020) noted that CBD in cancer treatment had shown promising results in moderating inflammation and changing how cancer cells reproduce since it reduces how various tumor cells reproduce.


    For lovers of peanut butter bars, consider trying the CBD ones since they have much to offer. It retains its delicious taste, but its benefits will be enhanced by infusing CBD oil.

    Recently, more and more people have turned to bake with CBD oil because of its health benefits such as pain relief, reducing anxiety, and resuing symptoms of neuroprotective properties like Parkinson's disease. However, when baking with CBD oil, use low heat since CBD loses its effectiveness when exposed to high temperatures. CBD peanut butter bars are a delicious way of enjoying CBD and are simple to make. However, before using CBD oil, talk to your doctors to help you know your ideal dosage and its effects.
