03 Nov CBD Benefits
Cannabidiol is a natural compound found in cannabis. Also known as CBD, cannabidiol is a breakthrough nutritional supplement and has become quite popular as an alternative to other over the counter wellness products. The many CBD benefits our customers around the world have experienced are summarized below.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is found throughout the seeds, stalk, and flowers of cannabis plants – including hemp and marijuana – in varying levels. Unlike many of the 100+ cannabinoids that we are aware of, cannabidiol occurs naturally in significant quantities in cannabis plants like hemp, so it is easily extracted from the plant and added to consumer products.
Once extracted from the hemp plant, CBD oil can be formulated into a number of unique products, including CBD liquids, CBD tinctures, CBD capsules, CBD isolate, CBD vapes, and more. These products can be used daily to promote balance and encourage wellness.
Common CBD Benefits
There are many benefits to taking a daily serving of CBD from hemp oil products. The most exciting among them is that CBD oil supplements help to augment the body’s naturally occurring endocannabinoids, increasing the body’s ability to promote homeostasis within its systems.
ho·me·o·sta·sis - the tendency toward a relatively stable equilibrium between interdependent elements, especially as maintained by physiological processes.
Cannabinoids are a class of active chemical compounds produced by the cannabis plant. These cannabinoids act on receptors located in our cells as part of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) and alter the release of neurotransmitters from body organs, including the brain. The ECS predominantly consists of two endocannabinoid receptors: CB1, located in the central nervous system (CNS), and CB2, found throughout the peripheral nervous system (PNS).
There are over 100 presently discovered cannabinoids, which are largely responsible for the effects cannabis has on the body. Common cannabinoids include tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol (CBD), cannabinol (CBN), and cannabigerol (CBG). THC and CBD have attracted much of the media’s attention however, cannabinoids like CBGa are emerging as important pieces to the ECS puzzle. Cannabinoids work together with the body’s ECS to regulate the body’s natural functions.
Once the endocannabinoid system is supplemented in this way it is able to function more efficiently by optimizing the body’s performance each day. Although it is not critical to supplement the endocannabinoid system daily, doing so can increase the effectiveness of CBD and the endocannabinoid system.
However, a hemp oil supplement offers more than just cannabinoids like CBD. Hemp oil also provides a number of benefits to the body, including:
- Essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals
- Healthy fatty acids like Omega-3 and Omega-6
- Source of protein
- Flavonoids and terpenes
- It’s non-intoxicating!
- Organically grown, non-GMO
Below are other benefits associated with hemp oil with CBD, but not necessarily for your physiological body:

- Triple Lab Tested (safety)
- Product variety (convenience)
- No medical card necessary
- It’s federally legal
- Getting it is easy

CBD Oil Benefits: Essential Nutrients, Vitamins, and Minerals
A daily serving of full spectrum CBD hemp oil offers a slew of nutrients including iron, zinc, carotene, phospholipids, phytosterols, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin D, vitamin E, chlorophyll, calcium, magnesium, sulfur, copper, potassium, phosphorus, and enzymes. Eating a diet that includes optimal levels of all these elements is very difficult. If your nutrition is lacking, or worse, consisting of mostly processed foods, it’s near impossible to consume healthy amounts of essential vitamins and nutrients.
These are raw materials your body requires to function properly. Essential vitamins, nutrients, and minerals work together in unison to perform hundreds of roles in a healthy human body.
Researchers describe cannabinoids interacting with these vitamins and nutrients the ‘entourage effect.’ The entourage effect is used to describe the improved benefits when all compounds in CBD oil work together, instead of separately. Each vitamin, mineral, terpene, or cannabinoid works great when alone. Together, they work better.
CBD Oil Benefits: Omega Fatty Acids And Proteins
CBD hemp oil is abundant in protein, polyunsaturated fatty acids, omega 6 and omega 3, and insoluble fiber. Composed of nearly 85 percent essential fatty acids (EFAs) alone, it offers the richest, most balanced natural source of EFAs.
The human body can synthesize most of the fats it needs from the diet. However, two essential fatty acids, linoleic and alpha-linolenic, cannot be synthesized in the body and must be obtained from food. The amount of alpha-linolenic and linolenic acid in one tablespoon of hemp oil provides more than the daily EFA requirements suggested by the FDA.
These basic fats, found in plant foods, are used to build specialized fats called omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are important in the normal functioning of all tissues of the body.
CBD Oil Benefits: Flavonoids And Terpenes
Present in many plants including hemp, flavonoids are antioxidants. Red wine’s beneficial effects can be largely linked to the high content of flavonoids in the vine. Small world, huh?
Terpenes contribute to a plant’s flavor, scent, and color. These compounds are the main ingredient for essential oils. Often used in food additives, perfumery and aromatherapy, some are even thought to have beneficial properties.
These two types of compounds are just part of the many benefits of full spectrum CBD oil.
CBD Oil is Non-Intoxicating
Whether at work, play, or at rest, be assured you’ll feel your best. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the compound in marijuana that causes its euphoric effects, the primary cannabinoid in hemp, CBD, is non-intoxicating and won’t impair your ability. Hemp is naturally high in CBD containing only trace amounts of THC, meaning that with hemp you can supplement CBD into your routine without experiencing the negative effects of THC.
Some CBD hemp oil products, like our RSHO-X, are made with CBD isolate, making it an excellent choice for competitive athletes, government employees, parents for their small children, or anyone looking to avoid detectable THC in their CBD supplement.
Explore CBD Research
There are over 23,000 studies and reviews published in respected peer-reviewed science and medical journals, new clinical trials being announced nearly every month, and many more studies beginning to research the effects of cannabinoids.
There’s too many to list in one place, so we invite you to do your own research into the benefits of cannabis from sources you trust and speak with your doctor before starting a new CBD oil routine.
Hemp Farmed Using Organic Methods
HempMeds® works with a generational farm in the Netherlands that has been cultivating hemp for five generations. We chose this farm because of their knowledge and experience growing safe high CBD hemp using organic methods.
After testing and reviewing over 3,000 possible hemp cultivars, we chose the specific hemp plant that would thrive in our farms’ local climate and soil to produce the optimal harvest for our CBD hemp oil products.
Triple Lab Tested® CBD For Your Safety
To ensure the safety and quality of HempMeds® hemp oil products, we test our pure hemp oil three times along our manufacturing process. Our hemp oil is first tested for purity and potency after harvesting. Once we import our hemp oil, we test it again with an independent testing lab to verify integrity, safety, and quality. Our oil is then tested a third time after being processed and formulated into our products to help guarantee the products delivered to your door are safe for you and your family.
This Triple Lab Testing® approach to our products is our promise that the products you receive from us are the best quality and the safest you will find in the market, just one more benefits of CBD products from HempMeds®.

No Med Card Necessary
No “medical marijuana doctor” visits for you if you want to try CBD hemp oil! You do not need a medical marijuana card when buying CBD hemp oil. Because hemp based products are sold as a dietary supplement, it is available nationwide to purchase online or in stores, just like any supplement or multivitamin.
However, many HempMeds® customers mention their intention to use CBD oil products to their doctors, especially if they are worried about any interactions with their current medications.
CBD Oil is Federally Legal
CBD derived from hemp is 100% legal to purchase and ship in the U.S. and in dozens of countries worldwide. Hemp, cannabis, and marijuana (slang term) are from the exact same plant species – Cannabis sativa. It’s common to mistake hemp and marijuana unless you know why they’re different. The easiest way to tell? If it’s under 0.3% THC content then it’s hemp.
Cannabis containing THC levels above .3%, extending into levels between 15-30% THC is considered medical marijuana or medical cannabis. Remember, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the intoxicating component of cannabis. Without these higher THC levels, there are no intoxicating effects, so you can rest easy knowing “CBD is right for me.”
Easy Access to CBD Oil Products
Unlike medical marijuana, which requires you to visit a dispensary or give a delivery service your home address, getting CBD hemp oil at home is simple. You can shop for CBD products online and in many retail locations throughout the U.S.

CBD Benefits For Seniors
CBD can also provide benefits for those who are at retirement age or older. CBD is non-intoxicating and doesn’t produce the euphoric effect of THC, which means seniors can breathe easy while benefiting from the positive effects of CBD.
With so many people reaching retirement age or older in this country, it is increasingly important to offer our Baby Boomers a healthy supplement to encourage healthy aging. CBD hemp oil can be used throughout all your years to create homeostasis; whether you’re in college, sending the kids off to college, or visiting grandkids in college. All ages enjoy all its benefits!
CBD Benefits For Kids
Do you lay vitamins out for your children in the morning with breakfast? Many families are in the habit of taking a vitamin and supplement routine together for optimal health and wellness, but your family may be missing a crucial element essential for balance within the body – CBD oil.
Packed with cannabidiol (CBD), CBD oil extracted hemp helps the body perform at its best. CBD interacts with the body’s natural endocannabinoid system to help regulate the body’s functions to maintain homeostasis or a state of balance despite outside fluctuations and influences.
Hemp oil also contains a number of essential vitamins, minerals, omega fatty acids, proteins, fiber, and other trace cannabinoids found in the hemp plant that can help children perform at their best.
