Many people are seeking holistic ideas to help achieve and maintain a healthy mental and physical well-being.  Prescription medications often come with unwanted side effects. Cannabidiol is an alternative that many people are discovering.   

CBD is identified in the cannabis plant and is just one of over 85 cannabinoids.   The wide scope of benefits that the Cannabis plant has to offer has become more popular. Those trying it may not want the THC– the chemical that causes a high. The oil comes from the hemp plant which is different than the marijuana plant. The hemp plant and CBD is legal to consume in all 50 states. There is a miniscule trace of THC in hemp. 

How does CBD oil benefit you?  According to the website Organicfacts.net it can reduce the severity of seizures, offer analgesic properties, provide anti-tumor effects, soothe anxiety and help with inflammation. CBD can also help sleep disorders, chronic-pain, arthritis, skin conditions, improve mood, protect the immune system and improve the metabolic system. These are just some of the benefits that researchers have found. 

Everybody has receptors throughout their body and under stress these receptors do not work properly.  CBD oil helps bridge that gap allowing one’s body to work more efficiently.  Hemp Oil in the body is used to boost the function of the endocannabinoid system — which helps the body regulate itself. 

There are a few reported side effects with the use of CBD which includes dry mouth, low blood pressure, fatigue and light headedness. These symptoms have been found to be minimal. 

CBD oil comes in many forms including capsules, tinctures, liquid oil, paste, sprays, salves, creams and edible forms.  One should consult a physician familiar with CBD as to the type and dose of the hemp oil.
