We’re hearing so much lately around the benefits of CBD oil from the media and online news so we wanted to dig out the straight-up info for you. Read ahead to answer your questions on: What CBD is, what are the benefits of CBD Oil and where to get it.
What is CBD Oil?
CBD is a legal, natural, herbal remedy that comes from the marijuana plant. CBD is said to be linked to many health benefits according to healthline.com, ranging from pain relief and promoting a healthy heart through to reducing the symptoms of stress and anxiety. Records from 1717 BC detail its use in ancient China where it was commonly used in tea to aid poor memory, malaria, and even gout (www.cbdcentral.com).
The great thing about CBD is that it is legal. 100% legal in fact. So don’t worry, you won’t be fined for using it. Basically, the cannabis plant is made up of different naturally occurring compounds, including CBD and THC; it’s the THC that gets you ‘high’. Unlike THC, CBD doesn’t contain any psychoactive qualities, making it perfectly a-okay to purchase and use (hooraaay).
