"In recent years, the advent of potent cannabis oil concentrates, non-psychotropic CBD product options, and innovative, smokeless delivery systems have transformed the therapeutic landscape and changed the national conversation about cannabis."1
If you're like many of us, you've probably heard from a friend or family member about CBD oil and its benefits. Perhaps you had a friend pick some up for you from "a guy he knows", or found some in a shop in your town.
And you're probably doing a lot of research to discover the answers to the Top 3 Questions beginners ask about CBD oil:
While CBD Oil is not regulated by the FDA, and cannot be claimed to be a treatment for patients looking for relief from symptoms of inflammation, pain, anxiety, mood disorders, epileptic seizures, Lyme disease, colitis, and high blood pressure (to name a few), hundreds of scientists, naturopaths, and regular people can vouch for its effectiveness.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH), an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, has been researching CBD in earnest for the past two decades, and the scientific and clinical research seems to back up what many already know through their own experience:
CBD provides therapeutic promise to those suffering from arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, chronic pain, schizophrenia, PTSD, depression, antibiotic-resistant infections, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders.
The NIH research on CBD is so positive, that in 2003 it acquired U.S. Patent 6,630,507 2, which covers the use of cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants. Yep! You read that right. The US government believes in the beneficial properties of cannabinoids, too!
Our bodies have been built to respond positively to CBDs, including those found in plants like hemp. Read why here.
While the U.S. Custom and Border Protection indicates that imported hemp products (including hemp derived CBD products) are legal as long as they "do not cause THC to enter the human body", we're not lawyers, and so rather than speak to the legality of purchasing and consuming CBD in the U.S., we will point to articles here and here. Please read them and decide what is best for you!Taking CBD Oil Won't Make You High
THC, also called tetrahydrocannabinol, is the compound in cannabis that is psychoactive and gives you the feeling of being high. THC's chemical make-up is very similar to CBD, which combats the effects of THC.
Our CBD products contain no - or very little - THC... no more than .3%, and the amount of THC in the products you purchase from us will clearly indicate whether there are even trace amounts of THC found in the product.
