There is much confusion and controversy over this emerging CBD phenomenon, but we can tell you this for certain- CBD hemp oil is not a new thing and its benefits are far reaching. We get asked these three questions all the time when people are first introduced to CBD products. We are here to create some clarity.
Concern #1: Is CBD a Drug?Although some CBD products will contain THC, the oil in our hemp-based products has been tested in accordance with Health Canada and USDA guidelines and contains 0.00% THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). This means that all CBD products are 100% DRUG FREE. CBD hemp oil is also an alternative to medical marijuana for those who are interested in using CBD but are looking to avoid the negative effects of psychoactive THC. CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is a cannabis compound that has significant medical benefits, but does not make people feel “stoned” and can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC. CBD oil is great for relief from inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis, seizures and other conditions. Topically, meaning when applied to the skin, CBD can help with joint pain, muscle pain, inflammation, tension, burns, eczema, rashes and it can promote peace and relaxation.
Concern #2: How does CBD even work?Remember, CBD stands for cannabidiol. Cannabinoids are a substance that initiates a physiological response when combined with receptors in your cells, called cannabinoid receptors. Certain receptors are heavily concentrated in the central nervous system while others are found in almost every organ of the body including the skin and digestive tract. This is why topical CBD oils and creams are effective, because your skin is a huge organ with these cannabinoid receptors. What does all this have to do with you? Well, now you have a potentially more effective remedy to reducing muscle tension, chronic pain, inflammation and on and on from your daily life.
Concern #3: What would I use CBD Oil for?Now that we understand what CBD is and what is not, let’s get practical. Muscle creams and oils have been around for forever. Think of CBD Daily salve, cream, serum, and massage candle as the improved muscle and joint relaxer with a secret, all-natural ingredient, CBD. Most of our fans use our products daily in the following ways:
- Relieve post workout muscle and joint soreness
- General chronic pain.
- Back, neck, and shoulder pain from sitting at the computer.
- Body aches from general wear and tear (yes moms that means you after your children have run you around in circles for years!)
- Body ache from the female menstrual cycle.
- Skin conditions such as eczema, burns, rashes, and general dryness.
- And more!
