What is CBD Hemp Oil?
Cannabidiol, CBD, is a non-intoxicating component of the cannabis/hemp plant with enormous therapeutic potential. Although CBD Hemp Oil contains less than .03% THC and is Non-Psycho Active, itʼs causing quite a buzz among scientists, health professionals, and medical marijuana patients who are using CBD-rich products to treat a wide range of conditions - chronic pain, cancer, Crohnʼs, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, PTSD,
cardiovascular disease, anxiety, antibiotic-resistant infections, multiple sclerosis, schizophrenia, and more. Academic research centers in the United States and elsewhere are currently studying the effects of CBD on these and other ailments. Scientists refer to CBD as a “promiscuous” compound because it confers therapeutic benefits in many different ways while tapping into how we function physiologically and biologically on a deep level.
How Does CBD Hemp Oil Work?
CBDʼs work with your Endocannabinoid System, (ECS), one of scienceʼs newest and most exciting discoveries. There are two types of endocannabinoid receptors found throughout the body (CB1 and CB2), but they are most abundant in the brain and immune system respectively. Your ECS is responsible for making sure your entire body is working optimally. Endocannabinoids are lipids, which are a special type of fat that interacts with the nervous system to cause specific changes in the body. Endocannabinoids latch onto special endocannabinoid receptor cells to make these changes in the nervous system happen. This action is somewhat like a captain docking his boat at a marina. Receptor cells are located throughout the body. Extensive preclinical research and clinical studies indicate that Hemp CBD oil have shown that CBD has strong anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-convulsant, anti-depressant anti-psychotic, anti-tumoral, and neuroprotective qualities and could be effective in easing symptoms of a wide range of difficult-to-control conditions, including:
Personally, I have heard from many that it worked for their arthritis pain, strained muscle pain, inflammation, swelling of joints from arthritis, skin irritation (eczema), lots of reduction in stress, and anxiety. One client experienced relief from her nerve stings above her upper lip immediately when applying.
My dear friend is able to sleep through the night, after applying the oil topically to her arthritic joints. This same friend is applying the oil topically to her lymph nodes and is experiencing her cancer tumors shrinking. She is also ingesting the CBD Hemp Oil.
My fitness orientated clients, are experiencing a more focused sensation during workouts giving more endurance to push personal boundaries, and a quicker recovery after workouts.
Many people experience the reduction or disappearance of anxiety. Personally, this is why I tried CBD Hemp Oil. Within 10 minutes of ingesting I experienced a calmness, focus, and the ability to complete all projects by noon, the same projects that would have normally been unfinished by the end of the day. I also experienced a Love high!? Nothing got to me! This “Love High” was very beneficial for my meditations and spiritual growth.
I also discovered for myself that I could not take the CBD Hemp Oil after 4 PM as it would keep me up, working on all kinds of projects started and abandoned over the years. I no longer need to take CBD Hemp Oil as I feel my anxiety/stress of “getting stuff done” has disappeared. My intuitive insights come much quicker and I am relaxed.
Another client takes the CBD Hemp Oil in the evening and it helps her sleep straight through the night? Just the opposite of my experience.
So with that said, CBD Hemp Oil works differently on everyone and how it works with your unique body is going to be unique to you. CBD generally can take from a few minutes to a couple of hours to work properly, depending on the dosage, the method of consumption and the symptom you want to combat. So the dosage is going to be different for everyone. It is suggested to begin with a small dose, 1/2 teaspoon and monitor
yourself. You can always take a bit more if you arenʼt experiencing relief.
CBD may be taken sublingually (held under tongue for 1-4 minutes) and applied topically.
Some people will also vape the oil, but that usually requires a carrier, which I do not personally recommend. There are also gums/candies being produced, but without further investigation, I do not recommend, due to other ingredient issues and the possibility of heat being used in the process of the product, which heat destroys the CBDʼs in the CBD Hemp oil.
Look for CBD Hemp Oil that is grown without fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides and is extracted through Co2 extraction, a gentle, low temperature that produces the purest form of hemp oil available while retaining a broad spectrum hemp oil profile.
