You've been hearing about it: CBD Oil...the health craze that's being talked about all over West Tennessee and the nation. Hub City Hemp, with four locations in the area, has the products and the expertise to help you on this health journey.
Folks have lots of questions, and these answers will help with many of those. Yes, CBD is derived from the Hemp plant. However, the effects of CBD a different. CBD doesn't get you high, doesn't give you the munchies, is 100% legal in multiple states (including Tennessee), the amount of THC is so low that drug tests are not affected, and it has demonstrated multiple health benefits. Here are just a few:
1. CBD OIL HAS SHOWN TO LOWER THE RISK OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
In 2013, data from over 4,600 was researched, regarding how cannabis affects the body's metabolic system. The research found that participants that used cannabis, had higher levels of HDL-C (the good cholesterol). Doctors will tell you, that having higher HDL and lower LDL (the bad cholesterol) lowers the risk of cardiovascular diseases, including coronary artery disease and high blood pressure.
2. CBD OIL FEATURES ANTI-INFLAMMATORY PROPERTIES
CBD oil has been shown to reduce inflammation. Chronic inflammation is often found in most of our society, with people suffering from cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer's, autoimmune disorders and more. Research suggests taking CBD oil can combat this type of inflammation.
3. CBD OIL FIGHTS SLEEP DISORDERS
CBD oil, according to some studies, taken just before bedtime, can help you relax and sleep better. A study by Eric Murillo-Rodriquez PhD, determined that "CBD might actually hold therapeutic promise for those with somnolence, or excessive daytime sleepiness from a not-so-good night's rest."
4. CBD OIL HELPS WITH MOOD DISORDERS AND DEPRESSION
People have been using CBD to help with mental health for hundreds of years. In human (and animal) studies, CBD has proven to reduce stress and anxiety. Research has also shown that people suffering from PTSD have found that using CBD as part of their regimen has been beneficial. The antidepressant-like effects provide users with depression relief without the typical pharmaceutical associated side effects.
5. CBD OIL IMPROVES COMMON SKIN PROBLEMS
If you have a common skin issue such as acne or psoriasis, you may be surprised to hear that you don't have to ingest CBD to reap some of the benefits. CBD oil salves and lotions can be applied directly to your skin to help treat conditions like acne and psoriasis. Some have claimed the oil helps with healing damaged skin. One man claims to have cured his basel cell carcinoma with cannabis oil.
These are just a few of the health benefits many have reported from the use of CBD oil.
