Things You Might Not Know About CBD OilThings You Might Not Know About CBD Oil

If you’ve been thinking about using CBD oil for one of its many health benefits but still unsure here are a few things you might want to know before you make your first CBD oil purchase.

CBD oil is not psychoactive and won’t get you high

Naturally, we all wonder if CBD oil will get us “stoned”.  Some of you may be disappointed others will be glad to know that CBD oil will not get you high, it’s not the same thing as THC.  Until THC, CBD doesn’t have a psychoactive effect and contains very small amounts of THC that are not enough to get you high.

So don’t worry you won’t get the red glassy eyes when you use CBD oil.

CBD oil can be purchased for and is considered safe to use for many of your pets

Many of us think of our pets as a member of the family and want to give them the best care possible.  So many medications have harmful sometimes long-lasting side effects on our pets.  CBD oil is natural, has little to no side effects and plenty of benefits for us and our pets such as:

  • Separation anxiety
  • Nausea experienced when riding in the car
  • Aggression toward another animal
  • Fear of loud noises such as fireworks or thunder
  • Pacing or inability to relax
  • Arthritis pain
  • Muscle spasms or seizures
  • Trips to the vet
  • Trips to the groomer
  • Riding in the car
  • Lack of vitality
  • Lack of energy
  • Excessive Barking
  • Lack of appetite
  • Symptoms of cancer
  • Pain

CBD oil may be what you need to fight addiction

My sister suffers from addiction and no matter what she always goes back.  It’s going to take her life one day, it’s hell for the family and we constantly worry about her.  Addiction takes so many people’s lives and we need an effective way to help those who suffer from addiction recover and have a future.

Wouldn’t it be awesome to find out something so simple could help those who suffer from addiction?  It’s believed that CBD helps by blocking the rewarding effects that opioids have on us.  Since CBD oil is not addictive, safe and offers no psychoactive side effects it shows to be promising as a natural treatment for those who are recovering from addiction.

It would be a dream come true to find out that CBD oil can help give those who suffer from addiction their life back.  It will still require work and dedication on their part it would be nice to see something like CBD oil increasing their chances of staying clean and sober.

Everyone is different, when taking CBD oil you may need a different dosage than your friend.

The endocannabinoid system is unique and responsible for improving and maintaining physical and mental health.  Since everyone has a different endocannabinoid system the standard dosing can affect two people differently.

There are a number of ways you can take CBD oil

There is more than one way for the consumer to take advantage of the benefits offered by CBD.  There are a variety of methods used to consume CBD oil such as:

Vaping CBD

Vaping is the fastest method of consuming CBD.  Using a vape pen allows you to inhale CBD and is said to be a great choice for those consumers who want the fastest relief possible.  The reason vaping works so fast is because it’s inhaled and absorbed directly into the bloodstream.  It’s been effective for people who are trying to stop smoking and a great choice for those who suffer from stress or anxiety and want fast relief.

CBD Tinctures

If you are not interested in vaping you might consider tinctures which are taken orally and provide fast results.  Drops and sprays are absorbed into the bloodstream.  Tinctures are easy to use and can provide relief in as little as 5 minutes.  It’s a great choice for people who do not like vaping but want results fast.

CBD Capsules

If you are seeking an easy way to take CBD oil you might consider capsules.  It’s as easy as taking your morning vitamin.  The capsules are predosed soft gel capsules.  CBD capsules are the easiest way to take CBD but also one of the slowest methods.  It could take up to 2 hours to feel the effects of CBD oil taking the capsule.

CBD Edibles

CBD edibles are another great choice.  You can purchase CBD edibles in different forms such as gummies, cookies, infused coffee, chocolate bars, mints and many more.  Like CBD capsules, the edibles can take a long time to begin working but the effects of edible CBD are said to be long-lasting.  If you are seeking extended relief and do not need immediate results CBD edibles are a great choice.

CBD topical lotions, creams, and other skin care products

You can also purchase CBD infused creams, lotions, salves, and other skin care products to help soothe sore muscles and relieve localized pain.  CBD topicals can be effective for skin conditions such as eczema and acne and may even help fight aging.  CBD topicals are absorbed into the skin so they provide relief where you apply it.

CBD oil is not a miracle cure for everything

With all the hype around CBD oil, it’s easy to think it’s a miracle cure for just about anything. You cannot just take a few drops and be cured, results are not instant.  Don’t use CBD oil for a short period and expect major results, it doesn’t mean it’s not working.  CBD oil takes time to work, nothing happens overnight.  You may want to talk to your doctor if you are concerned about dosing or whether it’s working, but regardless don’t expect to see results that night.

CBD oil may help treat a number of medical conditions

The health benefits of CBD oil are amazing and may help treat a number of medical conditions such as epilepsy, chronic pain, IBS, insomnia, inflammation, stress, anxiety, quitting smoking, PTSD, some mood disorders, sclerosis and many more.  I have a friend who uses CBD for anxiety and it’s made a world of difference for her.

CBD may help with weight loss

Many of us want to lose weight and wouldn’t it be great if CBD oil helped with weight loss too?  Weight loss with CBD oil seems to be promising and is quickly gaining attention.  CBD seems to have the opposite effect of THC and may decrease your appetite.  If you want to try CBD oil for weight loss I suggest doing your own research or talking with your doctor.

Yes, it’s legal to purchase CBD oil

You can legally purchase CBD oil nationwide.  You can easily purchase quality CBD oils online and have them shipped to your front door.
