What is CBD?

CBD is one of 104 chemical compounds, known as cannabinoids, that can be found in the cannabis plant. It’s a naturally occurring substance, which can be extracted and mixed with a carrier oil – often hemp seed or coconut – to create CBD oil. Unlike the most well-known cannabinoid, tetrahydrocannabidiol (THC), CBD is not psychoactive, meaning that it won’t make you ‘high’ – the sensation most commonly associated with cannabis.

It is, however, reported to offer a range of health and medicinal benefits – the reason behind its growing acclaim. CBD oil has been found from the research done so far to help with;

  • Anxiety.
  • CBD is a natural antidepressant.
  • CBD beneficial in epilepsy treatment.
  • CBD can help acne
  • CBD can help relieve pain.
  • Anti-cancer treatment.

What is low dose naltrexone?

Low-dose naltrexone (LDN) has been demonstrated to reduce symptom severity in conditions such as fibromyalgia, Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and complex regional pain syndrome.

Levo-Naltrexone is an antagonist for the opiate/endorphin receptors

Low Dose Naltrexone is a beneficial drug used for fighting cancer and autoimmune diseases. It helps alleviate pain and inflammation caused by various conditions, and it can be beneficial for many with chronic illnesses.

Are they safe to take together?

Yes. It is always recommended that you consult your doctor and healthcare team before starting LDN and CBD together. Although, there is not much research about using the two together, feedback and reviews from many forums say that using both together has helped. CBD and LDN are similar in that they target similar conditions. Especially if you are suffering with pain, or inflammatory conditions it is worth trying.
