CBD(cannabidiol) is a key compound found in the hemp plant. It is not psychoactive as is its cousin THC. CBD is present in all strains of hemp! Marijuana is just a strain of hemp that has THC also. There are over 60 cannaboid compounds found in hemp or marijuana. New studies have isolated strains of hemp that are very high in CBD but almost negligible amounts of THC. CBD enriched Hemp Oil is the product we need!
Hemp is a very misunderstood plant nowadays. In the early days of our country hemp was one of the highest profit crops to grow. George Washington and other founding fathers all grew hemp. As a matter of fact you were required to grow hemp and turn some of it over into the government to use for military clothing, canvas for tents and sails, rope for all the services. Yes you’ve got that right. Hemp has all those uses but we’ll look at them in a later article. For now we are going to focus on CBD enriched hemp oil.
You can extract hemp oil from industrial hemp plants that have no thc in them so it is perfectly legal. There are many cbd enriched hemp oil products on the market. The benefits from cbd are too great to be ignored. A friend of mine was relating why he felt we needed cbd’s to me the other day. He said “Prior to 1937 we had cbds in our diet naturally. That farmers grew it because it was easy to grow. Its a weed. Then they fed it to the cows and chickens and other farm animals. It even grew wild for some time before our government eradicated it. We received the cbds in our milk, butter, cheese, steaks, chicken fillets and on and on”. A little light bulb went off in my head. Maybe we need those cbds! Look what they are good for.
According to a 2013 review published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, studies have found CBD to possess the following medical properties:
A 2011 review published in Current Drug Safety concludes that CBD “does not interfere with several psycho motor and psychological functions.” The authors add that several studies suggest that CBD is “well tolerated and safe” even at high doses.
CBD treatment has also been found to be effective on:
- Prion/Mad Cow Disease
- Crohn’s Disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
And the list keeps growing.
CBD oil can be taken in many ways. There are capsules, tinctures, gels, put the oil under your tongue, you can even vape it. Actually vaporizing it and inhaling the vapor is one of the best ways to ingest it if you are just taking it as a supplement. If you are actually treating a disease I would check with a doctor as to how much you should be ingesting or otherwise. I know for pain it is suggested you take 50mg and upwards of 500 mg daily depending on your condition.
Mayo Clinic suggests CBD dosages on scientific research, publications, traditional use, or expert opinion. Cannabinoid dosages and duration of treatment depend largely on the disease. Note that some of these treatments recommend THC which is only available in states that have legalized medical marijuana
