Some people hear that cannabidiol (CBD) is derived from the same plant that produces marijuana and instantly dash out the door, so to speak. While both CBD and marijuana belong to the same family, they have completely different chemical make-ups. Much like how you are completely different from your cousin Skye.

This means CBD oil uses won’t make you high so long as you are educated and choosing a quality product. Broad-Specturm products do not contain THC, which is the main psychoactive compound in cannabis. THC is the compound that could make you feel somewhat light-headed or “high”.  CBD oil is gaining traction in the scientific community for its ability to potentially treat multiple health issues.

Here are some of the CBD oil uses backed by science:

  1. Digestive discomfort: The battle against digestive disorders has gone on for years as new issues are being discovered daily. Depending on your condition, there may be some benefits to using these oils to help calm your stomach. Some like the fact that it can also minimize their dependency on other meds as well. You can combine the oil with your drinks or simply take it directly.
  2. Trouble sleeping: Sleep meds are very effective but they are also very easy to become dependent on. People try a variety of things to help them get natural and healthy sleep. This includes drinking tea, trying to read before bed, exercising and cutting out caffeine or sugar after a certain time of day. These options may not individually generate better results. However, combined they do show improvement for those who struggle to get regular sleep.
  3. Nervousness: Another common condition that has a mixed reaction as far as its medication options is nervousness. Millions of Americans suffer from this condition and are striving to find ways to remedy it. Holistic options seem to be just as effective, or at the least, provide temporary assistance along with the use of prescription medications.

Every day, there are new discoveries being made in the medical field. CBD oils are a new and exciting option that many have found to be beneficial for short-term and long-term conditions. The use of these products should never replace something a doctor has recommended or prescribed.
