What is CBD Oil & How Can it Benefit Me?

CBD has been growing in popularity which has made CBD oil a hot topic! Now that hemp-derived CBD is fully legal in the States, there are more people than ever jumping on the CBD oil bandwagon. Demand is soaring for CBD products such as CBD vape pen, CBD gummies, and even CBD-infused drinks.

Even with the growing popularity, there is still a lot of controversy surrounding hemp-derived CBD since it is not as tightly regulated as marijuana-derived CBD. If you are looking to go the safer route and try marijuana-derived CBD products, we got you covered!

We, at West Virginia Marijuana Card, are the number one medical marijuana card provider in the state! We not only put your physical health first but provide holistic and comprehensive health and wellness for you. This all starts with being informed about which medical marijuana product to use.

In today’s article we will be getting into the nitty gritty about what CBD is, what CBD oil is, the benefits of CBD oil and how you can get it in WV!

What is CBD in General?

Great question!

CBD is one of the most important cannabinoids in the marijuana plant and provides many benefits. The best way to think about CBD is to think of it as THC’s little sister!

THC is best known for its psychoactive effects, in other words it’s the compound in marijuana that gets you high. CBD on the other hand has zero psychoactive effects. With CBD you can get all of the medicinal benefits of marijuana without any of the side effects!

What is CBD Oil?

Oil is a general term that is used to describe any liquid extract that comes from the cannabis plant. This liquid extract is used to create many different products that you can buy. Edibles, tinctures, topicals and pills are all created using marijuana oil. You can get any of these with CBD, THC or even both!

What are the Benefits of Using CBD Oil?

One of the main reasons why people turn to CBD oil is due to the fact that there are no psychoactive effects. It’s really easy to use and feels more therapeutic than recreational. CBD actually counteracts THC!

A benefit of CBD is that it has anti-inflammatory properties. This is a big deal for those with conditions that are rooted in inflammation such as multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.

CBD is super helpful when managing pain! Chronic pain is the number one condition that patients use medical marijuana for. This is because it works! CBD has been shown to be an effective treatment for chronic and neuropathic pain as well as reducing the use of opioids.

If you are struggling with insomnia, CBD can help you too! Sleep is an integral part of the healing process. If you can’t sleep, you can’t heal. CBD can help with this as it has been shown to help patients sleep longer!
