What You Probably Never Knew about CBD Oil

There is always some confusion regarding CBD oil because most everyone knows that CBD is a naturally occurring compound commonly obtained from cannabis plants, also known as marijuana. However, most people aren’t aware that hemp plants produce a much higher percentage of CBD than

In fact, there is so much misinformation, conflicting information, and, quite frankly, bad information out there on CBDs that it is no wonder most people believe it’s an illegal substance wherever marijuana hasn’t been legalized. Nothing could be further from the truth. To clear up some of the confusion, let’s take a look at what CBD is, what it isn’t, and some CBD oil uses you probably would never have dreamed of in a million years.

What CBD Oil Is and Is Not

Briefly, CBD stands for cannabidiol, which actually is present in cannabis (marijuana) in a high percentage, second only to THC, tetrahydrocannabinol. On the other hand, the cannabis plant is not the only plant from which you can extract CBD oil, as it is found in even greater percentages in the hemp plant, which, as a result, also has significantly lower amounts of the psychotropic substance THC.


When cultivating plants for the extraction of CBD oil that is considered ‘legal’ everywhere on earth except Canada, the plants used are of the hemp family and not the cannabis genus that gives you marijuana, which is still an illegal world. The point here is that you have nothing to fear when ordering CBD oil for medicinal use as it is not illegal, and you won’t get high. CBD oil is not a recreational drug.

Some Amazing and Little Known Uses for CBD Oil

If you or a loved one has ever suffered any form of cancer that required chemotherapy, you have probably heard that CBD oil can be effectively used to reduce nausea that is an all-too-often side effect of chemo. That’s perhaps the most widely known application. Also, many people swear by a drop or two of sublingual CBD oil to help relax the body at night as a sleep aid or at any time to help alleviate stress. What you probably don’t know is that CBD oil is also proven effective for:

  • An aid in nicotine withdrawal – proven in a double-blind study conducted at the Clinical Psychopharmacology Unit, University College London, London, UK.
  • Reduction of pain in people living with fibromyalgia – more patients in the 2011 study obtained CBD oil relief than from the more commonly prescribed opioid pain killers.
  • Anti-psychotic properties as substantiated by German researchers who published their findings in a Translational Psychiatry journal and without the same dangerous side effects of commonly prescribed pharmaceuticals.
  • Anti-inflammatory effects can reduce many of the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis.

And, what is even more amazing is that these are just a few of the hitherto unheard-of benefits of CBD oil. Since it is legal and lacks the psychotropic properties of marijuana, CBD oil is considered safe for use in any of the above situations. While it is always advisable to consult with your primary care physician before trying any new remedy, even 100% natural remedies, there have been no reports of any serious side effects when using CBD oil as suggested by the manufacturer. Always use any remedy only as directed.
