CBD Hemp Oil: A Few Drops Can Change Your Life
by Belue Farms Natural Market
If you haven’t heard about cannabidiol (CBD) hemp oil, you probably will. Derived from the cannabis plant, CBD hemp oil has been shown to relieve the body’s endocannabinoid system which controls sensations like pain, mood and appetite. However, CBD hemp oil will not make you high. Some cannabis varieties, like marijuana, have high amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which is psychoactive.
CBD is obtained from industrial hemp which has scant THC and no psychoactive affects.
Legal in 44 states (including South Carolina), CBD hemp oil contains potent antioxidants that prevent oxidative stress associated with gastrointestinal, neural and immune disorders. In fact, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services holds a patent (#6,630,507) for the use of CBD oil to treat neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s, autoimmune diseases including lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia, and inflammatory diseases such as Crohn’s.
Clinical studies printed in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology have shown just a few drops of CBD hemp oil can reduce epileptic seizures, chronic pain, anxiety and depression. The oil also been shown to improve sleep, energy levels, digestion and immune functions, as well as reduce sebaceous oil production, making it effective in controlling acne and psoriasis.
When buying CBD hemp oil, be sure to purchase it from a reputable source. Ideally, the oil should be organic, non-GMO, pressed from hemp leaves and stems, processed without chemicals, and be proven not to affect drug tests (i.e., not psychoactive). Also, because CBD hemp oil is a supplement and not a medication, you may want to consult your doctor before using it.
