If you’re keeping tabs on wellness trends, chances are you’ve come across cannabidiol (CBD) oil. It’s all over wellness blogs and even landing on the shelves of health stores—but what exactly does it do?

CBD oil is derived from the Cannabis Sativa plant and contains the potent health benefits of the plant minus the THC (the psychoactive part that makes you high). Researchers find CBD oil extremely useful as an anti-inflammatory and has even replaced over the counter pain relief drugs like NSAIDs for some users. It’s being used both clinically and by health conscious consumers as it proves extremely effective at promoting an overall healthy balance in our bodies.

Not sure if CBD is right for you? Here are a few of the many benefits of taking a cannabidiol supplement:

1. Relieves pain
CBD oil often substitutes traditional over-the-counter pain relievers and has been said to reduce pain and discomfort from a number of health conditions. Scientists believe that when CBD interacts with receptors in your brain and immune system, it creates an anti-inflammatory effect. It has even been useful in alleviating pain from chronic conditions such as multiple sclerosis and arthritis.

2. Helps ease nausea
The cannabis plant has actually been used for centureis to manage nausea and vomiting. In large doses, nausea can be a side effect of CBD, but when taken in small, therapeutic amounts it can actually help curb nausea. Researchers found that CBD indirectly activates what’s called 5-hydroxytryptamiine-1A (5-HT1A)—a very complex name for a compound that plays a major role in reducing nausea sensations. Because of this, CBD is often used to reduce queasiness and vomiting from chemotherapy treatments.

3. Can help manage seizures
While more research is needed to fully understand how it works, CBD oil has been said to have anti-seizure properties. One study found that CBD may have similar effects to current drug treatments for seizures and it may even be a safe and effective treatment for patients with schizophrenia.

4. Balances and supports mental health
While CBD does lack the psychoactive component (THC) of cannabis, it does have several effects on the brain that can possibly help ease anxiety. Research has shown that CBD can boost signaling through serotonin receptors, which is often the goal of mental health treatments. Evidence found in animal studies are paving the way for more CBD testing on humans to provide more effective solutions for mental health disorders.

5. Excellent for hair, skin and nails
In addition to its clinical uses, CBD is an excellent beautifying oil! it contains a number of essential nutrients that are helpful in maintaining youthful skin, hair and nails, such as vitamins E and C. It’s also been said that CBD oil is helpful in treating acne by controlling inflammation, and is also great at calming irritated scalps for soft, shiny, dandruff-free hair.

6. Can improve your sleep cycle
You may already associate sleepiness with THC, but CBD can help you catch some needed Zs in a different, non-psychoactive way. While it won’t make you drowsy, a therapeutic dose can help those with sleep disorders maintain a regular REM cycle by staying asleep once they’re dozing. Considering CBD oil can help you maintain a more balanced state of mind, falling asleep may prove easier while taking it as well.

How Can You Take CBD Oil?

If you’re concerned about taste and not a fan of taking capsules, CBD oil tinctures are an enjoyable way to take the supplement. Tinctures are dropper bottles of sweetened and flavored CBD oil designed to yield all of the health benefits and make you actually want to take it!

For a more convenient way to get your dose of cannabidiol, you can purchase the supplement in capsule form. These are great for taking with you on-the-go or for adding into your daily vitamin and supplement capsule regiment.

If pills are not your style, CBD also comes in liquid form. This is a great option if you were looking to add cannabidiol into your daily smoothie or if you wanted to use it topically. Many CBD liquids come blended with other fatty acids such as MCT oil for additional benefits.

Body Care
Cannabidiol is also finding its way into personal care products! There are more and more products infusing CBD into their formulas to leverage its amazing topical benefits.

No matter how you decide to take CBD (internally or topically) always be sure to test a patch of skin for allergic reactions or start with small internal doses and consult with your doctor to ensure it is a right choice for you.

    Can I take it if I take Exalgo for back pain? What other medications might it react with? I was hoping it would take the place of anxiety and depression meds also and get off of all them and just take CBD Oil. Thank you. Judy

    I have read articles about delta 9 oil. I have also read that delta 8 oil is better. Which is the best one to use?

    have been using CBD oil for 2 yrs, since i was prescribed the pills by my dr. a pain clinic and found that i did not like the side effects of the prescription capsules. due to the chemicals, i felt hungover from them until i was able to obtain pure cannabidiol oil/olive oil mix. i am handicapped, have severe fibromyalgia, osteo-arthritis, spinal stenosis, herniated discs, fused vertebrae, chronic fatigue, insomnia and am in constant pain. The oil i obtained was wonderful in taking the edge off the pain, not complete relief, but did not to take as much OTC meds, with zero side effects.
    also tried edible gummy candies which totally relaxed me (much faster and better results than trad.tranquilizers. still using the oil almost on a daily basis and would highly recommend to anyone who suffers from pain, anxiety and sleeplessness.

    Hi Sherrill, I have a lot of the same things you do 🙁 plus severe Interstitial Cystitis and severe nerve damage from medical malpractice. I’m also in constant pain along with a bunch of other horrible symptoms as well… So I was wondering which oil you tried, is it the one from Lucky Vitamin pictured above? Thank you so much, praying you feel better!!

    Hello ! I am looking for cbd. oil that can cure a different number of cancers do you know where I can purchase this type of cbd oil. thank you

    I have been taking the 25mg CBD oil capsules for a little over a year and it helps with my chronic fatigue. I’ve switched over to 15mg 2x a day now so I’ll be getting a little bigger dose which should help even more. I have Fibromyalgia and honestly I was hoping it would help with my pain levels but it hasn’t except when I double or triple the dose but I just can’t afford to do that since I’m on disability. I don’t have nausea very often anymore now that I think about it, so that’s definitely been reduced which is awesome! It also helps with my mood and sleep which is certainly challenging when dealing which chronic pain. I highly recommend CBD oil. Good luck to everyone looking for new ways of relief from whatever ails you.

    Vaporizing the CBD oil has been left out of this article and it is the most effective as well as cost effective way to get the CBD into your system without loss from the digestion process.

    My husband has stage 4 lung cancer diagnosed in feb 2016. Had standard treatments of chemo and radiation. He responded well to these treatments. Began taking cbd oil December 2016. No further treatment was given or even necessary. Tumors are GONE. This can be a cure for cancer but not prescribed of course because pharmaceutical companies can’t make money from it. I urge anyone with cancer to research this miracle. He is living proof. Doctors are amazed and baffled by how well he is doing. Scans are great. Thank you
    God for this discovery.

    My uncle was suffering from neurological disorder since 2 years and his health was becoming even more worse. Then one day, my uncle’s friend came to see him and and told to use cbd products. Though at first, we also hesitated but after then they seeing his worse conditions, we gave him and after few months he can remember things and was physically fit and mentally stable. Even I started using for chronic pain and it helped me to be in good mood all the time.

    I have a pretty intensely long history with chronic low back pain post 2 failed back surgeries, have posterior tibial tendinitis in both ankles, had four unrelated foot surgeries, have arthritis in both hands, have had 2 right knee surgeries and here’s what I have to say about medical marijuana products like this here in (LINK).. some of it is like using whatever over the counter stuff works best for your pain if there is something that does. Some aren’t made with any THC and some are (depends on who is making it). You can get either one. If for any reason you have to drug test don’t do it having had used something with THC in it. Whether it works for one person or not is probably pretty subjective though I have heard a lot of people say it does work for their discomforts. I find it helps my hands/fingers re arthritis. For my low back, I often use a Thermacare heat wrap (has magnets) and that seems to help me quite a bit. I don’t think medical marijuana properties or ointment is snake oil tho I would suggest getting it from a reputable collective or person knowledgeable in this industry. Good luck!!!! Whatever helps you to keep moving and stay functional and isn’t creating worse problems for you! Medical marijuana products are pretty benign from what I can tell so if it works for you that’s great!
