CBD oil: Uses, health benefits, and risks

As cannabis and cannabis-related products gain more and more traction due to changing laws, many people are left wondering what exactly these products do, how they are used, and what the benefits are. Specifically, people want to know more about cannabidiol (CBD) hemp oil. As there are many misconceptions about Pure CBD oil, we would like to clear the air by answering some of the questions that we frequently hear.

We don’t want to point fingers, but a lot of the brands in the industry are using whole plant extract from US grown hemp. The products may be fine in terms of quality, but they are less compliant than our lineup of products. That is the main difference between our products and the competing brands. We honestly believe that hemp CBD oil can change people’s lives and the world in which we live. Let’s get started

So, What is CBD Oil?

One of the biggest misconceptions about CBD oil lies in the active chemical. Although cannabidiol is one of the most prevalent chemical compounds in the cannabis plant, it is not the chemical compound that people use to alter their minds (that’s tetrahydrocannabinol). What that means is that people do not use CBD oil to get “high” because the cannabidiol chemical just does not do that. It’s a separate compound. However, CBD does influence people’s bodies. Although users will not become intoxicated from CBD oil, it does produce a sense of relaxation and shows a lot of promise as an:

* Anti-inflammatory

* Antioxidant

* Neuroprotectant

* Anxiolytic

* Antidepressant

* Analgesic

* Anti-tumoral agent

* Anti-psychotic

Although CBD shows a lot of promise in treating common disorders, it has long been overlooked due to the psychoactive compounds of THC.

Where Does CBD Oil Come From?

CBD oil is derived from the hemp plant. That much is clear. However, the law in the United States has made the production and distribution of hemp and hemp-related products quite difficult.

That’s because, on the federal level, growing hemp for commercial purposes in the United States is illegal. While this is slowly shifting (hemp has been planted in places like Kentucky, West Virginia, and Minnesota for the first time in a long time), there still is not nearly enough in production to meet consumer demand.

That’s why the hemp products that you see for sale in the United States have been produced in different countries around the world. As this industry is worth hundreds of millions of dollars, American legislators are finally starting to see the benefits of legalizing hemp production in the United States.

Since hemp is a source for many renewable types of products, it’s changing the way that we look at American agriculture. Although you can buy CBD oil in the United States, much of it is produced in other countries. However, that is slowly changing

How Does CBD Oil Work?

Found within the resin glands of the female cannabis plant, CBD is just one of more than 80 chemical compounds known as cannabinoids. Within your body, you have cannabinoid receptors. When you consume a cannabinoid, these receptors take the chemical into your body.
