Hemp can even replace some of these painkillers.
1. Hemp Oil Vs Painkillers (Vicodin)
Ancient traditions have been using Hemp Oil for a long time as a painkiller and people are starting to slowly make their way back to that. Painkillers such as Vicodin are laden with chemicals, and many Americans die every year as a result of painkiller overdoses. Hemp Oil is quite an effective treatment option for those suffering from chronic pain since it does not have the physical side effects associated with chemical drugs and it is not dangerous to use.
2. Hemp Oil Vs Anti-Anxiety Drugs (Xanax)
This one goes either way since some of the people suffering from anxiety reported an increase in anxiety after using Hemp Oil while others did not. The key thing is to ensure that the purity of your Hemp is over 80 percent.
3. Hemp Oil Vs Sleep Aids (Ambien)
Hemp is popularly used for medical reasons due to its assistance with insomnia. It is arguably actually more effective than pills such as Ambien while being less dangerous and addictive. It is also more fun too.
4. Hemp Oil Vs Anti-Depressants (Zoloft)
While this does not necessarily work for everybody and while it is probably not recommended for more chronic cases, it is still worth trying. Side effects associated with antidepressant use are rather exhaustive, and many people develop addictions. Anti-depressants only sweep the symptoms under the rug, and patients often come off the medication in the same state they were when they started.
Using Hemp Oil for depression takes a bit more time since it works more on psychology than on brain chemistry. It thus takes a bit more commitment and time coupled with a deeper understanding of how plants work compared to chemical drugs for depression.
5. Hemp Oil Vs Stimulants (Adderall)
People suffering from ADHD or ADD regularly use stimulants like Adderall for treating their symptoms. This is another instance where Hemp Oil works on psychology but still treats symptoms effectively and quickly. It is more effective to use Hemp Oil to treat ADHD than it is to treat depression using Hemp Oil.
It is also likely here that a Sativa strain is more appropriate for people suffering from ADHD than the indicia strain since it is more stimulating naturally.
