Why Should I Use CBD Oil: Knowing the Benefits of CBD

You’ve heard some good things about the benefits of CBD oil and probably even know someone who swears by it.

But, what exactly is CBD oil? Perhaps you’re wondering what the benefits are or if there’s side effects you should be concerned about. Read on for some facts, information on the types of CBD products available, and how you can benefit from them.

WHAT IS CBD OIL?

CBD is short for “cannabidiol,” and is one of many chemical compounds produced by the cannabis sativa plant. Cannabidiol is just one of the over 100 different cannabinoid compounds found in cannabis; the most notable, of course, is THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). THC is the most active ingredient in marijuana and is known for the euphoric effect it causes. Unlike THC, CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning users don’t experience the associated “high.”

Cannabinoids act on cannabinoid receptors located in our cells as part of the endocannabinoid system and alter the release of neurotransmitters in the brain. The endocannabinoid system 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 many benefits to taking a daily serving of CBD from hemp oil products. For one, you get a nutritional supplement that is crammed with antioxidants, essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and terpenes. A CBD oil supplement (exogenous cannabinoids) also helps augment the body’s naturally occurring (endogenous) endocannabinoids, increasing the body’s ability to promote homeostasis within its systems.

THE BENEFITS OF CBD

There are many benefits to taking a daily serving of CBD from hemp oil products, but the most exciting among them is that a CBD oil supplement helps augment the body’s naturally occurring endocannabinoids, increasing the body’s ability to promote homeostasis within its systems.

Daily supplementation is highly recommended. As any receptor-based system in the body, the body needs to adjust to the new levels. Once that adjustment has taken place, there is a new level of homeostasis. It’s possible that the ECS balance may help all other receptor systems run more efficiently because cannabinoids are present in abundance, thus enacting more beneficial effects for the body

Cannabinoids are a class of active chemical compounds produced by the cannabis sativa plant. These cannabinoids act on receptors located in our cells as part of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) and alter the release of neurotransmitters in the brain, such as GAMA and glutamate. The endocannabinoid system predominantly consists of two endocannabinoid receptors: CB1, located in the central nervous system, and CB2, found throughout the peripheral nervous system.

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).  (Scientists are excited about future research with CBG alone or CBG in combination with other cannabinoids.  It has a promising wide range of potential applications as a medicinal compound.)

Cannabinoids work together with the body’s endocannabinoid system to regulate the body’s natural functions – including mood, sleep, appetite, and immune response. Once the endocannabinoid system is supplemented in this way, it is able to function more efficiently, optimizing the body’s performance each day.

Because our CBD oil products are categorized as dietary supplements in the United States, we comply with the FDA’s DSHEA guidelines and cannot endorse any specific medical benefits of CBD or our hemp oil. To further comply with FDA regulations, HempMeds® does not list a Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) of our own, nor do we provide a Daily Value (%DV) for any of our products. We encourage you to browse the thousands of reputable studies regarding CBD published online and talk with your doctor to see if a CBD supplement is right for you.

Your safety and satisfaction are paramount in every decision HempMeds® makes day to day. We take a number of important steps during our manufacturing process to ensure that the CBD oil products that you and your family have come to trust are always the safest and most reliable they can be.

(Note: Because each individual is unique, it’s important to do research and speak with a physician regarding health-related questions or concerns that are specific to patient history. Although CBD hemp oil is beneficial to health, HempMeds® does not make medical claims based on their products and should not be used with the intention of curing, or improving an illness.)

WHAT ARE SOME WAYS I CAN TAKE CBD?

Because of the way CBD acts in the body, it has many potential uses and different applications. CBD oil can be taken orally, rubbed on the skin, can be inhaled as vapor, and even mixed with many items used daily to create a new, healthier, concoction. Since cannabinoids are very small molecules (when compared to others in the body), there’s much promise through IV administration.

A hemp oil supplement can offer more than just pure CBD. Different hemp oil products can provide natural essential nutrients too, like vitamins and minerals, omega fatty acids, proteins, flavonoids, and terpenes. It’s even better than soy! Adding these essential nutrients, often missing from our modern diets, is just one more reason to add a hemp oil supplement to your diet.

I’M AN ATHLETE. WILL CBD HELP MY PERFORMANCE?

Many athletes believe it does! CBD also packs a nutritional wallop. Many athletes keep CBD oil in their gym bags to add it to their workout shakes and smoothies as part of their nutritional and recovery programs.

If you’re a serious athlete and can’t risk the intake of even trace elements of THC, HempMeds® has you covered. The first CBD hemp oil product compliant with 2018 WADA regulations, RSHO-X™ is a completely THC-free version of our customer’s favorite Real Scientific Hemp Oil™.

Since RSHO-X™ contains absolutely no THC, the compound in cannabis that gets users high, it has become the CBD supplement of choice for parents of small children, first responders, competitive athletes, or anyone subject to a drug test. In fact, RSHO-X™ is the first cannabinoid supplement available that meets the rigid drug testing restrictions set forth by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

FOR OLDER ADULTS

CBD is non-psychoactive 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 with a healthy supplement to encourage robust aging. CBD hemp oil can be used positively in the lives of seniors to create homeostasis.

Our own government acknowledges the benefits of cannabidiol (CBD) and other cannabinoids in their patent on cannabinoids. Identified as patent 6,630,507, Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants, this government owned patent, awarded to Nobel Laureate Julius Axelrod and his team in 2003, describes the possible effects of cannabinoids like CBD.

The patent’s text reads, “Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism.” It continues, “The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants… Nonpsychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidiol, are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity.”

According then to the government’s patent, cannabinoids like CBD act as antioxidants. In much the same way, patent 6-630-507 also recognizes the ability of cannabinoids as potential neuroprotectants. Overall, cannabinoids like CBD promote balance and homeostasis through their interaction with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for functions like sleep, appetite, and immune response.

IS CBD SAFE FOR CHILDREN?

Would smoother bedtime routines be helpful in your life? How about kids who eat meals with less complaining? Maybe you’d be thrilled to see the kiddos head outside to play instead of spending hour after hour in front of screens? A daily serving of CBD can make these day dreams a reality.

Many families are in the habit of taking a vitamin and supplement routine together for optimal health and wellness, but they may be missing a crucial element essential for balance within the body – hemp oil. CBD oil products can be used daily just like the vitamins and healthy meals we give our children.

Packed with cannabidiol (CBD), hemp oil helps the body perform at its best. CBD interacts with the body’s natural endocannabinoid system to help regulate functions like sleep, appetite, and immune response 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. By providing such unique nutritional content, CBD hemp oil earns a place among your other favorite daily vitamins and supplements to give to your family each day.

WHAT ABOUT MY PETS?

CBD has become the cannabinoid of choice for many of our customers to give to their pets because it is non-psychoactive, non-toxic, and highly tolerable in animals. Since HempMeds® products are made with hemp oil that contains only a trace amount of THC, there aren’t any psychoactive effects, making them a safe choice for use on pets.

Note: please do not feed your dog any treats that contain THC. With more receptors in their smaller brains, animals are much more susceptible to the effects of THC and can easily experience nausea, vomiting, dehydration, severe disorientation, and loss of bladder control.
