So, with all this talk of marijuana and THC and being ‘high’, we typically find the next question to be: IS CBD LEGAL. And, as you are probably well aware, there are several states where CBD extracts from marijuana are legal, there are many more that are not. But, point blank, CBD extracted from hemp, whether singularly or as a full spectrum cannabinoid blend, is legal in all 50 states.
I have fibromyalgia and piriformious syndrome (severe hip/leg pain) and for the past six months have been dealing with extreme pain and insomnia. Having exhausted all tricks, remedies, doctors, and medications without relief I decided to try Cbd oil. After only two days I have slept like a baby, had hours of continuous deep sleep, sleep app confirmed this. The Hip/leg pain is dulled, but dulled enough that I can do therapy stretches without screaming or crying. The nerve pain from fibro feels like it is asleep! It is the most amazing thing not to feel every nerve in your body after three years of constant pain. The cbd oil does give me a slight tummy ache after taking it but goes away in about an hour. And I do mean slight ache. So far no side effects or interactions. ( Will up date if do)
Being a hyperaccumulator also has drawbacks: If a hemp plant that is used in production of CBD oil was cultivated in a land that is rich in heavy metals such as mercury and lead, the resulting oils will also reflect the amount of heavy metals absorbed by the plant, making it unsafe for humans to consume, especially children or others who are extremely vulnerable to toxins.
Like any manufactured product, one of the best ways to ensure quality is to use high-quality materials. This is especially important in CBD oil because of the hemp plant’s characteristic as a “hyperaccumulator.” This means that the hemp plant easily absorbs anything that is present in the ground that it was cultivated and farmed. If a hemp plant grew on rich soil, the resulting plant will be of high quality that can produce CBD oil in the same high-quality as well.
I want to thank Lazarus for such a wonderful product. I have been using for about a month for chronic pain issues and take for breakthrough pain. It helps so much that I believe the next step is to wean myself off of narcotics and go with this , I believe between the coconut oil that I rub on and this product it will help me better than narcotics have. I wish I would have started this years ago !! Thank you so much
In short, Cannabidiol – or CBD – is a cannabis compound that has many therapeutic benefits. Usually extracted from the leaves and flowers of hemp plants – though marijuana can also be a source – CBD oil is then incorporated into an array of marketable products. These products vary from the most common, like sublingual oils and topical lotions, to the less common (think CBD lattes). Basically, if you can dream it, you can buy it.
But there’s a big difference between the two. Hemp seed oil has been pressed from hemp seed, and it’s great for a lot of things – it’s good for you, tastes great, and can be used in soap, paint – even as biodiesel fuel. However, hemp seed oil does not contain any concentration of cannabinoids at all, including CBD. So by all means, stock up at your local natural food store. Just don’t expect to reap the benefits of a true CBD oil when you cook with hemp seed oil.
Broad-spectrum CBD is a little bit of both. Broad-spectrum CBD is full-spectrum CBD without any THC. It offers all the entourage benefits associated with full-spectrum CBD, without any chances of THC being ingested into the body. Broad-spectrum CBD is an excellent choice for individuals that can’t have any traces of THC is their system, whether for legal purposes, passing a drug test, or anything else.
The first step to finding your correct CBD dosage is getting as much information as you can about the product you’re using. What is the concentration of CBD? Are there third-party lab tests that can confirm that? The CBD industry is still mainly a grassroots therapeutic movement, and as such, largely unregulated. Concentration and purity levels can differ greatly depending on the manufacturing process.
The health benefits of full-spectrum hemp go beyond it being a source of CBD. The array of cannabinoids and other natural constituents found in full-spectrum hemp oil work have been shown in studies to work together in what’s referred to as the “entourage effect.” Together, these compounds work harmoniously to magnify their therapeutic properties. The complex mix of cannabinoids, essential nutrients, protein, and healthy fats work synergistically to encourage homeostasis and balance in our health.
