About CBD OIl
Many in the medical community have come to extol the virtues of CBD oil. But what is CBD oil? The Cannabis indica is a plant which when dried makes marijuana. CBD oil is an extract of the Cannabis. What does CBD oil do? Currently, CBD oil is being used worldwide to treat pain, reduce anxiety, and stimulate appetite. In this way, it mimics marijuana but is does not produce the same psychoactive effects. There is also a lot of research being conducted about using CBD for treating certain types of seizures.
The Cannabis plant has many chemicals but two of them have the most health benefits
1. CBD, which is short for cannabidiol.
2. Tetrahydroccanibol (THC) which is responsible for the psychoactive effect of being "high"
CBD oil, in most cases, does not contain THC. CBD oil is usually mixed with a carrier oil, such as coconut or hemp seed oil.
