The Breakdown on Cannabidiol Hemp Oil: What It Is and How It Works

The benefits of hemp and cannabis oil are well known and have grown in popularity in recent years. One product that has gained traction in the hemp market is cannabidiol hemp oil, more commonly known as CBD hemp oil.

What is CBD Hemp Oil?

Most people associate hemp with THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, which is a psychoactive element present in hemp. However, unlike many hemp oil products that are high in THC, cannabidiol oil is made from low THC hemp. So low in fact (less than 0.3%), that the psychoactive attribute is eliminated from the product. Cannabidiol is actually the second most prevalent cannabinoid in marijuana after THC, although CDB accounts for the majority of the hemp plant's composition while THC is only present in trace amounts. Since the hemp oil consists mostly of CBD and not THC, it's non-psychotropic and therefore produces all of the health benefits associated with hemp but without the "high."

What are the Benefits of Cannabidiol Oil?

Your body has a responsive system, called the endocannabinoid system, which is made up of receptors that react to the presence of cannabinoids in the body. Your body produces its own cannabinoids, which is why most people don't need to manage their endocannabinoid system. The system regulates a variety of bodily functions including appetite, pain, moods, memory, immune response, cycles of cellular life and death, and sleep. One of the many benefits of CBD oil is maintaining a healthy endocannabinoid system, and thus promoting healthy bodily functions. It can also help with anxiety, inflammation, and chronic pain, all without producing a euphoric feeling.

Are There Any Side Effects?

While everyone reacts differently to any product, there have been no actual findings of adverse effects on the body due to CBD. In fact, scientists from Germany conducted an investigative study to determine if CBD was healthy for human consumption. The results of the study found that cannabidiol is perfectly safe. The findings looked at a variety of physiological interactions with CBD and found that it had no negative effects on blood pressure, body temp, red blood cell count, glucose levels, pH balance, heart rate, and much more.

Many hemp oil companies are jumping on the CBD train, offering hemp CBD products that can help people with their ailments without all of the controversies. It provides a legal, safe alternative that can benefit millions of people.
