CBD Oil Ultimate Guide
If you have tried some of the CBD oil products before, you already probably know that CBD is an abbreviation for Cannabidiol. CBD is a cannabinoid type in the cannabis plant and is one of the 113 cannabinoids in the plant. CBD accounts for up to 40% of the plant’s extract. The oil is used in making several CBD oil products that have numerous health benefits to users.
Let us begin by having a glimpse at some of the CBD oil types you may find at our stores and consider your various health hitches.
Benefits of Using These CBD Oil
You may already know some of the CBD oil benefits. However, there are some general benefits you could acquire from using these oils. Some of those benefits include:
1. Helps in Relieving Pain
From as far as 2900 B.C., marijuana has been a significant ingredient of pain-relieving medication. However, in recent times, researchers have found out that specific marijuana components, such as CBD, are ideal for pain relief.
For the CBD to be effective on the body, the body produces endocannabinoids that bind to form cannabinoid receptors in your nervous system. When you ingest CBD, it reduces chronic pain by interfering with endocannabinoid activity in the body, inhibiting inflammation, and interacting with neurotransmitters.
2. Helps with Alleviation of Cancer-Related Symptoms
Research proves that CBD and CBD products may help reduce symptoms linked to cancer and can be used to treat or deal with side effects related to cancer treatments such as pain, vomiting, and nausea. It is also ideal for alleviating chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. The drugs that are normally used for alleviating such symptoms are sometimes ineffective, which forces some people to seek other alternatives.
3. Reduces Anxiety and Depression
You should never feel demeaned when you suffer anxiety or depression attacks as these are common mental health disorders but ones you should seek treatment for as early as possible. The pharmaceutical drugs used for treating anxiety and depression always come with several side effects, including drowsiness, sexual dysfunction, insomnia, agitation, and headache. You can avoid this by getting yourself the CBD oil products.
4. Helps in Fighting Acne
Almost 10% of the world's population is affected by acne, and this is a significant number that cannot be ignored. It is a common skin condition that is mainly prevalent with the teens who are just in the peak of their puberty. It is found to be caused by many factors, including bacteria, underlying inflammation, genetics, and excess formation of sebum, which is the oily secretion produced by the sebaceous glands in the skin.
CBD oil can counter inflammations in the body. This anti-inflammatory ability of CBD oil and the ability to reduce sebum production helps it to reduce acne and even eliminate them from the skin.
5. Can Boost Your Heart’s Health
CBD has now been linked with numerous benefits to the heart and blood circulatory system. It even can lower your high blood pressure with time. CBD's ability to reduce stress and anxiety has been linked to its effectiveness in dealing with high blood pressure. CBD also helps reduce inflammation and cell death related to heart disease thanks to its powerful antioxidant and stress-reducing ability.
CBD Buying Guide
Anytime you want to purchase any CBD product, you have to understand what you are looking for before you get settled for any of the products. Let's have a glimpse of some of the factors you should be considering before buying a CBD product.
- The THC Content
THC is the compound present in cannabis responsible for the 'high' feeling people get whenever they smoke or ingest hemp in its raw form. Many countries are yet to accept CBD products as safe for consumption or use within their borders. However, significant states have approved the drug and restricted THC's level in any CBD product to 0.3% or lower.
If you need products with THC content higher than 0.3%, you must consult with your local jurisdictions if CBD products with more than 0.3% THC concentration are legal in your country.
- Get Acquainted with CBD Terminology
Since CBD products are yet to be widespread in the market, there is scanty information regarding the jargon words used in the product's field. You may get some terms broken down for you on the product ingredients section, but some even the manufacturer will leave to find out by yourself. They include:
- Full Spectrum CBD
This describes a CBD that has been extracted from the hemp plant but has not yet been separated from the hemp's naturally occurring flavonoids, terpenes, cannabinoids, and fatty acids. Since full-spectrum CBD products have THC, they give more potential health benefits but could be illegal in your country or state.
- Broad Spectrum CBD
This is just a full spectrum CBD that lacks THC. Broad Spectrum CBD oil products give you the essential health benefits Full Spectrum offers you without bothering about the hustle of dealing with authorities banning products with THC components.
- CBD Isolate
It is a pure CBD extract that has been acquired from the hemp plant then later isolated from all the other compounds you can find in the CBD plant, including THC. The resultant product is an almost 100% pure product.
- Check the Ingredients
Checking any CBD product ingredients is an essential step should take before you buy or use the product. While some products may seem to fall in the same spectrum category, they may have some additional specific ingredients meant to benefit a special group of people. Some CBD edible products are also laced with artificial colorings and flavors, which could be harmful to your health.
- Ø Check the Price Range
Before making any buying decision, checking how much it costs is always one of the key considerations to take. Let the product fall within your budget, and if it doesn't, you can compare it with other products with the same healing potentials. Of importance at the end of the day is the CBD component, and it doesn't matter how it comes packaged.
Side Effects Associated with CBD Products
CBD products, just like any other medicinal product, have side effects, and they vary with different consumers. Some of the most experienced side effects associated with CBD include:
- Causes Diarrhea.
- Decreases appetite.
- Causes liver injury.
- Increases the risk of sedation and the feeling of drowsiness.
- Affects alertness.
- May cause other severe side effects when mixed with other medications.
