CBD Facts: 5 Things to Know About CBD Oil

CBD Facts: 5 Things to Know About CBD Oil

Cannabidiol, more commonly known as CBD, is one of the latest supplements to trend in the health and wellness market. While there are lots of supplements that come and go from a popularity standpoint, CBD is one I think we’ll see last - and for good reason.

In addition to some of the more common benefits - it can improve overall health, is non-psychoactive and can reduce inflammation naturally - there are a number of other facts to know. 

5 Things to Know About CBD Oil 

1. CBD Products Are Legal in All 50 States

In 2018, hemp derived CBD was declared legal, following strict production regulations. One of those guidelines being, CBD products cannot contain more than 0.3% THC (the psychoactive property found in marijuana that causes a person to feel a “high”). The hemp plants used to produce CBD must also be grown by licensed famers.

2. CBD Won’t Make You High

CBD is most commonly derived from the hemp plant, not marijuana plant. At the most basic level, this means when you consume or apply CBD products there are only - at most - trace amounts of THC, which means CBD won't make you high. I recently wrote a piece on how CBD works in the body, which goes into a bit more detail on how CBD works when you take it. 

3. One CBD Dosage Does Not Fit All 

Everyone metabolizes CBD differently. A general rule of thumb to keep in mind when determining what dose of CBD is right for you is to consider the number of and severity of your symptoms. 

Common symptoms you may want to treat include:

  • Pain

  • Fatigue

  • Inflammation

  • Inability to sleep

  • Low energy

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

4. CBD Helps Support A Healthy Sleep Cycle 

Many of us struggle to fall asleep from time to time for a number of common reasons:

  • Stress

  • Anxiety

  • Depression 

  • Discomfort 

  • And more

CBD has calming, antipsychotic and anti-anxiety effects which can help reduce difficulties sleeping. CBD can also help increase REM and deep sleep cycles, helping you feel more rested. 

To support a healthy sleep cycle, we recommend considering a broad or full-spectrum CBD oil for maximum benefits.  If you’re not sure where to start, check out our THC free 600mg Broad Spectrum Hemp CBD oil with turmeric.

5. CBD Oil is Safe For Cats and Dogs 

Not only is CBD beneficial for people, it’s also a safe and viable supplement for cats and dogs. Like humans, pets can also face anxiety, stress, pain and inflammation.   

Your pet may be experiencing anxiety, pain or other symptoms if you see:

  • Constant meowing or barking

  • Urinating more than usual

  • Aggression

  • Chewing things (clothes, furniture, etc.) 

  • Whining 

Like with people, there are different levels of CBD doses that may work best for your pet. While CBD is relatively harmless, we recommend starting with a low dose, and increasing as needed if your pet’s symptoms persist. 

Getting Started with CBD 

If you’re considering CBD to support your health and wellness routine, we invite you to visit our online store. If you have any questions about dosing, please call or contact us today

It’s also important to note that CBD is not a cure all and you should talk with your doctor - or your pet’s veterinarian - about any supplements before usage.
