Is CBD Really A Help?

CBD is all the rage among people that hate doctors to those that are pro doctor, from young to old people are trying CBD to relieve pain to anxiety.  In this blog, I will discuss how it has helped our family with a variety of issues and what is out there on the web about CBD.  We will also touch on why some places get raided and shut down while others stay in business.   What side effects to look for while consuming CBD.  How you can take CBD into your body.  Come along on a none high inducing journey that may help you relieve pain to anxiety.

According to an article on the CBD+ origin website, CBD makes appearances in history starting in 2737 BC when the Chinese Emperor of that time used in his tea to help with issues with memory, malaria, rheumatism, and gout.   It shows up again in 1901 when the Queen of England used it to alleviate menstrual cramps.   In 1839 an Irish physician published a study on how CBD had medical applications.  It was not until 1940 a British Chemist formed CBN that lead two years later to an American chemist making CBD.  Over the years many researchers studied and refined the use of CBD and how it was produced.  1996, California was the first state to legalize medical marijuana and other states over the years have followed with legal medical marijuana or complete legalization of marijuana. This move caused researches to investigate CBD as a form to help medically without the high.  In 2018 Farm Bill federally legalized Hemp-derived CBD.

Today you can buy CBD oil in many forms that include oils, tinctures, creams, capsules, pills, edibles and vaping. The method you choose should be based on your preference and how your body reacts.  My daughter tried the tinctures first but found the effect minimal and the taste off-putting.  She moved on to the oil in her coffee but found that she was not getting the full dosage due to it clinging to the side of the mug.  She did get relief from anxiety and panic attacks. Upon running out of oil she visited a local health food store that sold CBD oil and was directed to the capsule form of CBD that contained the oil.  She loved the ease of taking the pill and has had continued relief from anxiety and panic attacks.  My dad and I started taking CBD for joint and muscle pain.  My dad has had great results with relief from chronic pain related to a fused back, fixed rotator cuff, hip replacement, and amputee’s arm. I have had some relief from arthritis in hips and knees but is not consistent at this time.  

It is important to choose a rebuttal dealer to purchase your CBD so that it is pure and does not contain THC.  CBD does have a trace of THC no more than 0.3 percent but will not show up in blood tests.  The store you see closed, fined and possible jail time the THC level is above 0.3 percent. CBD should not induce any type of high.

CBD oil does have a standard dosage that is generally recommended which is 25mg of CBD, taken twice a day.  It is also recommended that you slowly work your way up to this dosage and to stop increasing when you feel relief from your symptoms.   The increase should not be more often than every 3-4 weeks.   If you feel like you are not getting results, then try mixing up the delivery of CBD and get it in different forms.   For more information on dosage and CBD oil check out this website https://cbdoilreview.org/cbd-cannabidiol/cbd-oil-and-your-body-tolerance
