Unless you have been living under a rock you have probably heard by now of cbd oil. So what is it? What does it do? Is it legal? What does it help with? These are the many questions you may have about CBD oil.
What is CBD Oil?
CBD oil (Cannabidiol) is a compound that is made by extracting the properties from cannabis plants (hemp or marijuana) then adding a carrier oil. This compound does not cause the normal “high” that people think of when they think of marijuana. This high comes from what’s called THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). A carrier oil allows the substance to be absorbed through the skin for a topical CBD cream.
CBD Oil Benefits
CBD oil has been known to reduce inflammation, pain, reduce epileptic seizures, help with anxiety and depression, and even improve sleep.
Is CBD Oil Legal?
CBD oil products that contain less than 0.3% of THC are legal federally, however some states have not legalized the sale of these products just yet.
Can You Overdose on CBD Oil?
Yes, just like you can have water toxicity by drinking too much water. You can also overdose on CBD Oil, however it is very difficult to do this. A person would have to ingest nearly 20,000mg of CBD oil in a short time.
Is CBD Oil Addictive?
CBD Oil products are THC free or those with very little THC are NOT addictive. THC is the addictive substance in marijuana plants.
How Do I Choose the Right CBD Company?
Do your research. Choose companies that have backed up their products with research and transparent results of their products. At Journey Family Chiropractic we support Halcyon Essentials.
