Have you heard about CBD Oil? It’s all the rage in my circles and it seems I can’t even log into Facebook without seeing something about it in my timeline or in one of my mom Facebook groups. I even started taking CBD Oil a few months ago and have seen a huge difference with anxeity. I’ve got friends taking it for pain, I’ve got friends giving it to their kids to help with ADHD. There are so many different uses for CBD Oil and you might be overwhelmed with information. That’s why I’m here to give you the details on the deal with CBD Oil.
What is CBD Oil?
Before we delve into the benefits of CBD oil, it is important to know exactly what it is. Cannabidiol is extracted from the flowers and buds of marijuana or hemp plants through a process that takes out the THC leaving only the benefits of this great cannabinoid. There are 100-plus cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant and unlike classic marijuana which contains THC, CBD oil does not give you a high.
How Does CBD Oil Work?
Researchers have been studying about CBD oil since way back in the 1950s but only recently we have understood how it works and the benefits that it has for our bodies. The human body has a system called the endocannabinoid system (ECS). This system is found throughout the body and has two types of cannabinoid receptors: CB1 and CB2.
CB1 receptors are located primarily in the brain. These receptors are responsible for keeping the brain and central nervous system in check.
CB2 receptors are primarily located in the immune system and other organs of your body. These receptors work to keep your body in homeostasis.
CBD is a cannabinoid that inserts itself into the endocannabinoid receptors to activate different functions of the body.
Is CBD Oil Legal?
Yes. CBD Oil is legal in all 50 states as long as it does not contain THC.
Can CBD Oil Get Me High?
Nope! There are several components of hemp and CBD Oil contains no (or very little) THC. Since the THC is the part that causes the ‘high’, you will not get high when using CBD Oil. If you were to take a drug test and use CBD oil regularly, it will not show up on a drug test!
What is the Right Dose?
When you purchase your CBD Oil from a reputable retailer like Diamond CBD, you’ll find the dose on the label for you. When you are new to using CBD Oil it is best to start with the smallest dose and slowly work your way up. This will help you find the minimum dose that works well for you.
Is CBD Oil Addictive?
No. CBD oil is non-addictive and can be started and stopped at any point without any issues.
Does CBD Oil Have Side Effects?
This really varies by person. CBD Oil is safe but just like any other medication you may take, it depends on how your body tolerates it. I’ve personally never had issues!
What Do People Use CBD Oil For?
There’s a long list of things that CBD Oil has been know to help people with. As I mentioned earlier, I’ve been using CBD Oil to help with anxiety. I know people that have used it to help with pain or to help with stress. A friend gives it to her son to help with his ADHD at school and has seen an amazing improvement in concentration since he started it. And another friend gives it to her dog for when he’s anxious or she knows it will be a holiday where there will be fireworks shooting off! Here are some other symptoms that people use CBD Oil to help with:
- Chronic Pain
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Eases Cancer Symptoms
- Muscle Spasms
- Minimizes Seizures
- Elevates Your Mood
How Do I Take CBD Oil?
So, you might hear oil and just assume that’s how you take CBD Oil. That’s what I thought! But there’s actually several different ways to take CBD Oil. The most common ways that CBD Oil is sold are:
- CBD Capsules
- CBD vape oil
- Edibles – like gummies, cake pops and even honey!
- Oil put under the tongue
- CBD creams
- CBD spray
I’ve personally only used CBD spray where I spray it under my tongue. It seems to be the most fast acting way to use it. I’m super interested in getting the CBD gummies, so that will be the next thing that I purchase!
