CBD hemp oil is made with high CBD and low THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). CBD doesn’t offer up the same psychoactive and euphoric effects provided by THC. In fact, while THC is found in high quantities in marijuana and low quantities in hemp, the reverse is true for CBD. The CBD oil is most often extracted from hemp as opposed to the traditional marijuana. Therefore, hemp CBD is legal to buy everywhere around the world.

What does CBD do?

CBD oil is often used as a dietary supplement. The oil, extracted with a solvent from the plant, is an excellent source of nutrients that can be safely consumed by kids and adults as part of their daily diet. Studies have found that CBD can help with nausea, seizures and anxiety. A suggestion is to keep it under your tongue for a minute to let the hemp oil access the blood stream faster for instant effect.

Numerous people have reported success in using CBD to reach a desired state of calm and relaxation. Strictly as a chemical substance, CBD also has strong antioxidant properties.

Is it worth its weight?

While there are some cannabis strains higher in CBD than THC, hemp is the primary source for unlocking the magic of CBD.

Hemp has been known and extensively studied, proving beyond the shadow of doubt that it’s a bio accumulator.

It draws more than water from beneath the ground. Unfortunately, it pulls up many heavy metals from the soil, which isn’t something you want to consume

“We routinely send our products off for independent lab testing for quality control to ensure they are free of heavy metals, chemicals, E. coli, listeria and other harmful contaminants,” Justin Barrick, President at Green Garden Gold, explained.

It takes hundreds of acres to produce hemp

A huge amount of hemp has to be processed to produce a low level of CBD. While some view this as a drawback, others have created a selection of products that have an arsenal of tumor fighting, anti-depressive, and anti-inflammatory properties. There are so many unique varieties of products out on the market today. So even though it takes a lot to produce it, it is still worth it since hemp can be used in so many different spectrums.

Provide relief for a variety of ailments

Whether you are trying to quit smoking tobacco or battling the symptoms of a severe illness, CBD is known to provide relief for patients suffering from fibromyalgia, diabetes, acne, menstrual cramps, Crohn’s disease, and PTSD. Products ranging from hemp oil to topical rubs can provide near instant relief. CBD is worth the hype.
