Hemp CBD oil

Cannabid­iol is emerg­ing as a pow­er­ful — but mis­un­der­stood — sup­ple­ment. Here’s what you need to know

“CBD is the next big thing in the so-called health in­dus­try,” says Earl Min­dell, PhD, phar­ma­cist, long-stand­ing pi­o­neer in ed­u­cat­ing the world about the ben­e­fits of nu­tri­tional sup­ple­ments, and au­thor of Heal­ing with Hemp Oil: A Sim­ple Guide to Us­ing the Pow­er­ful and Proven Health Ben­e­fits of CBD.

The pop­u­lar­ity of CBD oil stems from its many and var­ied ben­e­fits, in­clud­ing re­lief from pain, mus­cle ten­sion, and high blood pres­sure, as well as mood, sleep, and skin prob­lems.

Short for “cannabid­iol,” CBD oil in di­etary sup­ple­ments comes from the in­dus­trial hemp plant, which is in the same fam­ily as mar­i­juana, Cannabis sativa, but doesn’t pro­duce a “high.” De­spite hemp’s lack of psy­choac­tive power, the fa­mil­ial con­nec­tion breeds con­fu­sion. “Most physi­cians are fright­ened by it,” says Min­dell, “be­cause of lack of knowl­edge.”

What It Does

CBD oil is anti-in­flam­ma­tory, acts as an an­tiox­i­dant, and has a ther­a­peu­tic ef­fect on the brain and cen­tral ner­vous sys­tem, which in­flu­ences many pro­cesses, in­clud­ing the sen­sa­tion of pain, mood, mem­ory, and ap­petite. Epilepsy, anx­i­ety, ADHD, Alzheimer’s dis­ease, arthri­tis, and fi­bromyal­gia are among the con­di­tions that CBD may help. And, says Min­dell, “It has no side ef­fects.”
