This tiny bottle is fast becoming a common must have. With all the hype currently going around about cannabis oils, you may be curious as to just what it is, and what the benefits of using oils are.
It seems that more and more people are taking drops on their tongue at night — not to get high, but to cure all manner of ailments, from sleep problems and anxiety to body pain, migraines and even skin problems.
CBD (Cannabidiol) is being touted as the cure for nearly everything from anxiety to pain to inflammation. What is CBD and what do we really know about it?
CBD is a cannabinoid – a type of medicine derived primarily from cannabis.There are 80+ known cannabinoids in cannabis.
You may be familiar with THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol). THC is a cannabinoid and is responsible for the intoxication or “high” you get from cannabis. However, THC is also responsible for much of the benefit from the medicinal use of cannabis, including anxiety relief and depression and pain control, treatment of insomnia, poor appetite, and nausea and vomiting.
CBD oils that are blended with THC on a 1:1 ratio won’t cause any intoxication. Since intoxication in medical use is an unwanted side effect, CBD seems ideal. The question is, does CBD actually do any of the things people say?
The answer is Yes.
CBD has proven it can be used to treat anxiety and even psychosis in humans.
CBD has also been very successful in treating epileptic seizures – in children who have rare, genetic seizure disorders.
