In addition to acting on the brain, CBD influences many body processes. That’s due to the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which was discovered in the 1990s, after scientists started investigating why pot produces a high. Although much less well-known than the cardiovascular, reproductive, and respiratory systems, the ECS is critical. “The ECS helps us eat, sleep, relax, forget what we don’t need to remember, and protect our bodies from harm,” Marcu says. There are more ECS receptors in the brain than there are for opioids or serotonin, plus others in the intestines, liver, pancreas, ovaries, bone cells, and elsewhere.
In addition to their range of oral CBD tinctures (which are administered via droplets placed below the tongue), Aura CBD also offers a newly-introduced Turmeric MCT cannabis butter (which is great to use in tea, coffee, smoothies, or as a cooking oil), a variety of CBD skincare products, and a delicious range of CBD edibles including our personal favorite raw CBD chocolates, which contain organic cacao powder and raw, organic agave.
That leaves those touting CBD’s effectiveness pointing primarily to research in mice and petri dishes. There, CBD (sometimes combined with small amounts of THC) has shown promise for helping pain, neurological conditions like anxiety and PTSD, and the immune system—and therefore potentially arthritis, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, cancer, and more.
I’m 87. Have lived with Trigeminal Neuralgia for 17 years. At first Tegretol helped a little but disease worsened and Tegretol damages liver. Went to legal Dronabinol(THC) with doc’s prescription. Insurance paid. CVS provided 2.5mg pill. THC Stopped pain, and no side effects.  Also have tried CBD oil with 1200mgs per ounce. 2 drops sublingual. Not a good taste but I am without pain using CBD at 1200mgs per ounce.  It also means I now have only a negligible amt of THC in my body.

Generally, CBD oil is made by combining an extract with a carrier fluid or oil. This question is best answered by looking at how the CBD oil was extracted. CBD oil can be extracted using CO2 systems or by using chemical solvents. Both methods produce a CBD oil byproduct that is then combined with a fluid like MCT oil, coconut oil, or olive oil so that it can be delivered to the body. Always check to make sure you know the CBD content of the products you purchase.
I have digenerative disc disease/4 bulgin discs was taking 9—10mg hydrocodones a day… i started with 3 drops of 300mg and within 5 mins started feeling better than i have theses last 6 years or so… not only that, the inflamation has decrease substantially, i wake up with energy and have begun to work out again… if im making it seem like a miracle drug… its because it is… so the first week i took 3 drops twice a day… now 3 weeks in… im taking about 5 drops 3 times a day and zero pain pills… for the first time in years i have taken control of my life agin… not depending on doctor scripts/bills etc….
…with due respect, your experience Locsta is almost precisely what happened with my….chihuahua. Degenerative disc disease, excruciating pain, prednisone worked, but couldn’t keep her on it..pain killers and muscle relaxants didn’t help, really thought I would have to put her down.  Chi bloggers suggested CBD; gave PetReleaf a shot–like you, literally within minutes I could see the difference, in days she was pain free and now is back in charge of our world.  The real key here is that with my dog, there is zero, nada, chance that there was any placebo effect…
CBD vape oil is a very straightforward way to take CBD. Your usage will depend on which type of vape product you purchase. If you buy vape oil, you will need to fill a vaporizer with the oil. Otherwise, you can buy a vape kit that includes a disposable vape cartridge which simply screws into the vaporizer. This option completely curtails the hassle of maintaining a vaporizer needing to be refilled with e-liquid. If you are using a re-usable vaporizer pen, keep in mind you will need to replace the tank and/or coil once in a while.
Also, all HempWorx products are 100% organic and non-genetically modified, and the company apparently makes all of its products right here in the United States. Moreover, the hemp used to extract the oil is grown in Kentucky, and unlike a lot of firms who claim their CBD products to be lab tested, HempWorx actually ‘walks the walk’ by publishing up-to-date details of their test results on the site (you can find them under the “HempWorx Store” tab by clicking the “CBD Oil Certification” button).
When extracting THC from the cannabis plant, it’s not easy to separate the THC from the mixture. This requires skill, expertise, and technology. Some shady brands create DIY CBD oils by using dangerous solvents, and then try to sell their products online. They sell them at extremely low prices, looking to make a quick buck. Before purchasing, always make sure that the CBD oil you are looking at has no psychoactive effects, and makes sure that it has been extracted with CO2 techniques as this ensures that no dangerous chemical solvents were used. And remember that THC is illegal in most states, so you don’t want to get on the wrong side of the law.
