First up, what is CBD oil?

CBD is an abbreviation for cannabinoid or cannabidiol. There are at least 113 known cannabinoids in the hemp plant. Yes, CBD oil comes from the extract of stems and stalk from specific cultivars of hemp. But no, it won’t get you high. CBD oil hemp is naturally high in cannabinoids and only contains minute amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC; the stuff that gets you high) whereas marijuana is the opposite containing high levels of THC and lesser amounts of CBD. But we’re here to talk CBD oil so let’s find out, what is CBD oil good for?

More About Cannabinoids


Well, what is CBD oil good for?

The human body has a system called the endocannabinoid system, also known as the endogenous cannabinoid system, or ECS as we will call it. The ECS regulates the human body’s general state of balance, affecting things such as sleep, hunger, mood, hormone regulation, pain and immune responses. The human body has receptors within it located primarily in the brain and central nervous system (CB1 receptors) and the immune system (CB2 receptors). We don’t do much to support our ECS system, and we definitely don’t eat a diet rich in it. However, when we supplement our bodies with cannabinoids, cannabidiol, or CBD whichever you prefer to call it, we might be helping it find its natural balance.


What is CBD oil used for?

CBD oil is used in a supplement form. Thousands of studies have been conducted and research continues to suggest that supplementation of CBD products might help individuals suffering from anxiety, depression, PMS, difficulty sleeping, pain and inflammation, nausea, acne, irritable bowel disease, rheumatoid arthritis, concussions, possible protection from neurodegenerative diseases, reducing or potentially stopping epileptic seizures, possibly reducing MS symptoms, and maybe even fighting cancer! It’s safe, healthy, non-psychoactive, and legal to ship and sell in all fifty states.

Clinical Conditions That Benefit From CBD Oil


What is CBD oil made of?

First, you need to understand that CBD hemp oil is not the same as the hemp seeds or organic hemp oil you find in grocery or health food store. Hemp seed oil is a great nutritional supplement. It is rich in protein, polyunsaturated fatty acids, omega 6, omega  3, and insoluble fiber. It is also a good source of tocopherols (Vitamin E antioxidants). Hemp seed oil is also full of minerals like potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, calcium, and phosphorus, not to mention microelements like strontium, thorium, and chromium. As you can see hemp seed oil is amazing, but when the oil is derived only from hemp seeds, it does not contain CBD. Specific cultivars of the hemp plant are used for an extract high in CBD. Ananda Hemp’s cultivars come from the Himalayas, S.E. Asia, and Africa to offer a unique profile of rare cannabinoids. CBD oil is extracted from the stalks and stems of the hemp plant, but Ananda Hemp also utilizes the whole flower which offers a full spectrum of cannabinoids and beneficial terpenes.
