19 Nov Top 5 Benefits of CBD Oil
CBD oil is everywhere these days. Mainstream broadcast media such as CNN and 60 Minutes have done eye opening segments on this new trend in health and wellness. But for many shoppers, there are still questions about CBD oil benefits.
5 Benefits of CBD Oil
Homeostasis Gets You Balanced
CBD, like all cannabinoids, interacts with your native endocannabinoid system. This system’s role is the maintenance of the body’s homeostasis, defined as maintaining equilibrium in a system despite outside influences and fluctuations. Everyday stress, worry, tightness, and aches and other effects of our day all work together to throw us off balance.
The endocannabinoid system works to keep that from happening. As we’ve covered in numerous other articles, the ECS is emerging as one of the most important receptor based systems in our body. It influences and regulates many functions that until recent decades had researchers stumped.
Do The Shoulder Drop
Feeling tense? Do your shoulders feel like they’re up in your ears? One of the body’s responses, when overloaded from work, life, or just a too-busy mind, is to hunch the shoulders. It’s a natural response that comes from multiple systems working together:
- The circulatory system increases breaths per minute to help reduce the acidic buildup of the stress response
- The musculoskeletal system responds by activating secondary breathing muscles, like the shoulders, pectorals, and even the lower back (if breathing is especially forceful)
- The tension from the neck and shoulders causes strain and discomfort
Many of our customers write us to describe how CBD makes them “feel”, as it affects each person uniquely. Some say it “instantly calms them with a general feeling of relaxation” and that it “drops their shoulders.” Others say it quickly changes and uplifts their mood and temperament. Try it for yourself and see what CBD oil benefits are all about.
CBD and the Skin
The skin is our largest organ and one of the body’s largest detoxification agents. When stressed, physically or mentally, your skin will mirror the internal imbalance. As we discussed above, the various body systems working together that promote the stress response show on a person’s skin. When stress levels increase, oils and other byproducts are produced as the skin works to remove and detoxify the body through sweat and other metabolic responses. This process can dry out the skin and reduce essential nutrients or vitamins that we need for healthy, shining skin.
CBD itself is a powerful antioxidant and when combined with essential oils and our unique herbal blend, daily use of topical CBD oil products can nourish and hydrate your body and replenish critical resources lost throughout the day. Designed for whole body wellness, our topically applied CBD oil based salve can be used daily to address age spots, wrinkles, dry skin, and even muscle discomfort.
You Don’t Need to Smoke CBD Oil
You don’t have to smoke hemp to reap CBD’s benefits. In fact, people who take CBD oil do not smoke it. Combustion is the term that we use inside the industry to describe the process of increasing heat in order create smoke.
Combustion also converts precursor acids (such as CBDa) into their active counterparts, what you know as CBD. This process, known as decarboxylation, can also be achieved by gently heating CBD oil
Increasing the heat of these precursors isn’t necessary in order to reap the benefits of hemp, however. Non-decarboxylated or “raw” CBD oil products, like those in our RSHO™ Green Label line, feature higher levels of CBDa and other acidic cannabinoids than our other products.
Cannabinoid precursors are emerging as a point of interest inside the scientific community. Why? They’re discovering that these precursors, which morph into other cannabinoids, may have more effect on the body than we initially believed. With knowledge, comes innovation. When the latest science emerges, you can bet HempMeds® will have a product for you.
You can use CBD oil in a number of ways:
- Under the tongue; all you do is measure out your serving and place it under your tongue for 60-90 seconds before swallowing.
- Orally: CBD can also be eaten. Common oral CBD products include CBD capsules, CBD gummies, and other CBD edibles. CBD oils and CBD isolate can also be added to a range of foods and beverages. Mix it up, drink it down, or eat it with your meal.
- Vaporize it: CBD can also be vaporized. CBD vape products like those from Dixie Botanicals® can be used with special vaporizers like certain vape pens to create clouds of inhalable CBD vapor.
Hemp Oil is Nutritious
As a nutrition source, hemp is almost perfect in its makeup. Full spectrum CBD oil is jam packed with materials such as healthy omega-3 fatty acids, terpenes, vitamins, chlorophyll, amino acids, and antioxidants.
You know it takes a daily habit to reinforce healthy nutrition habits. CBD oil is very similar in that you need to continually reinforce your endocannabinoid system to best promote balance. Making CBD oil a part of your daily supplement and vitamin routine is a great step towards greater wellness.
What is CBD Oil?
CBD hemp oil is made from high CBD, low THC hemp, unlike medical marijuana products, which are usually made from plants with high concentrations of intoxicating tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Because hemp contains only trace amounts of THC, CBD hemp oil products are non-intoxicating. In other words, CBD oil does not cause euphoric effects. This makes it a safer, less controversial alternative, while still offering significant wellness benefits. This is just one of many CBD oil benefits.
