CBD Cannabidiol products that boost health benefits
What is CBD?
CBD is the abbreviation for cannabidiol, one of the many cannabinoids, or chemical compounds, found in marijuana and hemp.
You’re probably already familiar with THC, which is another compound found in the cannabis plant. But unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive. In other words, it’s not what gets you stoned. It’s also different from medical marijuana, which has been shown to reduce pain.
What does it do?
Research has shown CBD may be helpful by lessening anxiety for people who have schizophrenia or psychosis, or who are addicted to opiates. Because of its anti-inflammatory properties, CBD could even help treat acne.
There’s also evidence it can help children who suffer from epilepsy, which is why the FDA last summer approved a new prescription medication, Epidiolex, which is a formulation of CBD, meant to treat severe epilepsy.
Advocates believe there are many potential health benefits. Clinicians say more research needs to be done.
How do you use CBD?
CBD oil is found in sprays or liquid drops that patients hold under their tongue for at least one minute. This method allows the product to go directly into the bloodstream. CBD can be taken orally or applied topically, depending on the product. There are lots out there, from gummies and softgels that supposedly ease anxiety, to calming bath soaks, creams and oils, and even beer.
Most of the products claim to ease pain and anxiety. But whether or not these products actually contain the amount of CBD they advertise is up for debate, since they’re not approved by the FDA. In 2015 the FDA tested CBD products from companies making unfounded health claims and found that many of them didn’t even have the amount of CBD they’d advertised.
Don’t vape CBD
Vape oils are also poorly regulated, which has resulted in frequent reports of items sold as, say, pure nicotine that is actually adulterated with known toxic substances. Some of these substances, like the buttery flavoring agent diacetyl, are perfectly safe too, say, eat, but when heated in a vape and inhaled, can cause serious lung irritation.
