CBD Oil: The Pop Culture Trend That Can Change Your Life

Don’t let the pot leaf scare you away! It is not marijuana. It is legal, and it is for everyone from businessmen, to students, to our furry, four-legged friends. Although CBD oil and edibles have been a craze in stores recently, it is not just another pop culture trend for the Baby Boomers to frown upon. It is medicine, and it can help you. So, before you begin reading this article, I ask you to be open-minded!

What is it?

            There is some confusion in regards to what exactly CBD oil is. A lot of people assume that since it is a form of cannabis, it is marijuana; however, that is not the case. It is not only a different species of the plant entirely, but it also affects the human body in different ways. Cannabis has two species: hemp and marijuana. CBD oil is extracted from hemp, Species 1. It contains all the cannabinoids except for THC (the cannabinoid in marijuana, Species 2), which means it has all the benefits without the high induced from marijuana. When CBD oil is used orally or applied topically, it enters into the endocannabinoid system. The ECS is a network of receptors spread throughout the body that control vital life functions, such as the immune system, memory, appetite, mood, pain, and sleep patterns.

What can it help?

            Do you wake up in the morning and struggle to get out of bed because your joints hurt? Does your uterus try to kill you every month? Does homework stress you out to the point of tears?

Does it really work?

            My mother is forty-six years old and works a full-time job that requires her to lift thousands of pounds a week. She has suffered from chronic back and nerve pain my entire life. It has gotten to the point where her days off aren’t even enjoyable because her joints get so stiff when she isn’t constantly moving around. She was prescribed pain medication when she has was diagnosed with chronic back pain, which was over twenty years ago. Her body has grown a tolerance to her medication, so it doesn’t help much anymore. A few days ago, she called me nearly in tears. She explained that since she had started using CBD oil, her leg has stopped hurting. She was so happy because she had forgotten what it felt like to walk and move around without being in pain. It inspired me to write this article and help spread awareness of this 100% natural cure.

How do you use it?

            There are many different types of CBD products, including lotions, creams, sprays, and dog treats. However, CBD in its natural oil state is a sublingual, which means it is taken orally. It is taken every day twice a day, and the dosage increases by 5 drops for the first three weeks. It is measured in drops, and the maximum recommended dosage is 20 drops. During Week 1, a person would take 5 drops. You take the dropper and place the 5 drops under your tongue. Avoid swallowing for 1-3 minutes. Do NOT drink, eat, or smoke for at least 15-30 minutes afterwards for maximum absorption.

Where do you get it?

            CBD oil is now legal in fifty states, so it is very accessible. Although the FDA is compliant, they do not regulate CBD oil, which means brands do not have to be completely honest about what they are selling you. Most brands have added ingredients that dilute the effects of oil, such as purified water, glycerin, and potassium sorbate, to name a few. Hempworx, an online company, offers 100% natural CBD oil that has no fillers, pesticides, or harsh solvents. It contains over 120 terpenes and more than 500 trace compounds, which means you’re getting CBD plus over 400 other nutrients your body needs in an easy-to-absorb form. The hemp used is USA-grown in Kentucky. Hempworx doesn’t stop at oil. They offer anti-aging cream, icy pain rub, lotions, and dog treats (for the fur babies)! They have a 30-day empty bottle, money-back guarantee, so there is nothing to lose! Check it out: www.hempworx.com/amcleland
