I’m so excited to finally have the chance to share the great benefits of CBD oil with you. Feel free to ask questions through the class, and I’ll do my best to answer them as we go.
I’ll let you decide for yourself! I want to start by taking a look at the history of CBD, then I’ll explain what CBD oil is, and I’ll end our class by sharing some benefits associated with CBD oil.
CBD supplements made from industrial hemp are legal in all 50 states, in the UK, and many other countries around the world.
Today, there are two simple distinctions between hemp and marijuana:
HEMP- A non-psychoactive plant primarily for use in clothing, paper, biofuels, bioplastics, dietary supplements, cosmetics, and personal care products, and foods. Hemp is cultivated outdoors as a large crop with both male and female plants being present to foster pollination and increase seed production.
MARIJUANA- Cannabis sativa is specially cultivated to enhance its THC content to be used for medicinal or recreational purposes. Marijuana plants are typically grown indoors, under controlled conditions, and growers remove all the male plants from the crop to prevent fertilization since fertilization lowers the plant’s THC level.
THC is the psychoactive cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. Some of the therapeutic qualities of THC include pain relief, relaxation, appetite stimulation, and insomnia.
CBD, or Cannabidiol, is present in many strains of cannabis at low levels. Some of the popular uses of CBD include relief from chronic muscle pain, convulsions, and inflammation.
CBD has shown remarkable potential in research studies for its ability to:
– Lower convulsions, anxiety, inflammation, and nausea
– Lessen the psychotic symptoms of schizophrenia
– Reduce or prevent metastasis in breast cancer and other types of cancers
Where to start with dosage:
A good rule of thumb to determine your proper CBD dosage is to take 1-6mg of CBD for every 10 pounds of body weight based on the individual’s level of pain. Consider your pain level, using 1-2mg for mild pain, 3-4mg for medium pain, and 5-6mg for severe pain.
Another suggested dose is 25mg twice a day, increasing the amount of CBD you take every 3-4 weeks by 25mg until you attain symptom relief.
