The latest buzz in the health industry is CBD oil, but what is it and what can it do for you?

CBD is a cannabinoid. It’s from the cannabis plant however,  it doesn’t get you high like marijuana.

“Marijuana contains many chemical compounds that create the different characteristics of the plant. Terpenes provide flavors and aromas, while chlorophyll in the leaves makes the plant green. But the most important chemicals in marijuana are the cannabinoids.

Cannabinoids are the chemicals which give the cannabis plant its medical and recreational properties. Cannabinoids like THC and CBD interact with different receptors in the body to produce a wide range of effects, such as feeling high.” (

What are the benefits of CBD oil?

CBD oil is mostly known for its anti inflammatory properties. It has also been successful in treating people with chronic pain, joint issues associated with arthritis and many autoimmune diseases.
Cannabinoid oil has been shown to help with quitting smoking and drug addiction withdrawals as well as controlling epilepsy and other neurological disorders.
People with anxiety, PTSD, OCD and panic disorder also have relief and better life quality.
Studies have also been known to treat many other conditions such as:
Type 1 diabetes


Is CBD legal?

Cannabis is legal in many states for medicinal and recreational use. CBD oil has been approved in other states as a hemp product , but not the general use of medical marijuana.

What are the side effects?

Although some people report being tired, diarrhea and changes in appetite,  research has found no significant effects on the central nervous system.

How to dose?

The best suggestion is to seek advice of a doctor or homeopathic practitioner.  CBD comes in many forms such as edibles, capsules and even topical creams.
I personally have been using CBD oil and have greatly noticed deeper sleep and less joint pain. Do your research and speak with a medical professional to decide if this is something to add to your supplement regime.
