CBD Oil and Longevity - News, stories, studies on CBD and anti-aging

Could the Fountain of Youth have been growing freely in most parts of the world for millennia, right in front of humanity’s collective face the whole time? Adherents of cannabinoids as cure certainly believe in CBD for longevity purposes.

And why not? Among cannabidiol (CBD)’s proven and demonstrable positive effects on inflammation, neurogenesis and even in promoting bone strength, all signs point to CBD oil promoting longevity and healthier lifestyle.

Of all the important tasks CBD helps induce in the body, perhaps the anti-inflammatories are the most important. Just as in treatment for strokes and heart disease, the key aspect of CBD interacting with body chemistry is that of its reducing inflammation in brain tissue. Naturally, this is all about a given CBD oil product interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS).

CBD is particularly notable with regard to its high interaction with the hippocampus, the part of the brain dealing mostly with memory. Via the ECS, CBD oil when metastasized also interacts with the amygdala, cerebral cortex, cerebellum, basal ganglia and hypothalamus – not to mention many other areas of the body. The exact chemical interactions between CBD and the aforementioned areas of the brain are not known, but the outward effects can be measured.

A Cambridge University study of 2013 showed that CBD induces neurogenesis, i.e. formation of new neurons. The implication is clear for those interested in longevity, for as the brain ages, neurogenesis naturally slows. Meanwhile, a 2014 study from Australia entitled “Long-Term Cannabidiol Treatment Prevents the Development of Social Recognition Memory Deficits in Alzheimer's Disease Transgenic Mice” presents the exciting possibility of CBD oil as a potential cure for Alzheimer’s, a true boon to one of the world’s biggest killers.
