The revealing truth about CBD

CBD has come into the spotlight throughout 2018, being acknowledged primarily for its anti-inflammatory properties and its ability to help treat several intractable diseases like epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease, and Multiple Sclerosis. It has become so popular that it is now being used and researched for additional conditions, such as irritable bowel disease and pain relief.

What is CBD?

CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of the natural cannabinoids found in the Cannabis Sativa plant. Unlike THC, which is known to produce a psychoactive effect, CBD does not cause a high. Therefore, some doctors have been classing it as a medical compound, and recommending it to patients for the treatment of a variety of diseases.

According to a recent study in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, for example, it was found that CBD possess several unique healing properties:

  • Antiemetic – Reduces nausea and vomiting
  • Anticonvulsant – Suppresses seizure activity
  • Antipsychotic – Combats psychosis disorders
  • Anti-inflammatory – Combats inflammatory disorders
  • Anti-oxidant – Combats neurodegenerative disorders
  • Anti-tumoral/Anti-cancer – Combats tumor and cancer cells
  • Anxiolytic/Anti-depressant – Combats anxiety and depression disorders

The Legal Status on CBD Oil

You’ll find that most CBD oil located in stores is manufactured from hemp, but if you live in a state where the medical or recreational use of cannabis has been legalized, you can go to a dispensary and find CBD Oil made from marijuana plants.

What’s the difference?

Hemp plants have different genetics and are grown in different conditions to marijuana plants. They are tall and have tough, fibrous stalks and stems, and are grown aptly in wide-open fields similar to corn or wheat.

Marijuana plants, on the other hand, are stubbier and much shorter – they are typically produced under conditions that allow for THC to be highly present among the active plant constituents.

The major difference between the two is that Hemp has hardly any THC. Rather, it is abundant with other phytocannabinoids, terpenes, and CBD.

From a legal aspect, all cannabis plants are of course still classed as a Schedule I drug, and are therefore federally illegal. Some individual states have introduced laws legalizing the conditional use of physician-recommended CBD oil, and these states are supplementing those which have already established cannabis legislation either medicinally or recreationally. This means that if you reside in a medical state that permits the use of cannabis for specific treatments, you will most likely be allowed to use CBD Oil.

But what happens if you live in a restricted state?

Obviously, CBD Marijuana Oil that will get you high is out of the question, but CBD Hemp Oil is a completely different story. According to, a non-profit organization dedicated to the transparency of CBD research and legislation, “Federal law prohibits U.S. farmers from cultivating hemp as a commercial crop. [However], the sale of imported, low-THC, industrial hemp products is permitted in the United States. This is as long as these products are derived from the seed or stalk of the plant, [and] not from the leaves or flowers.”

Sounds amazing, right? Well, it depends on who you ask. If you read the Agricultural Farm Bill of 2014, you won’t find as clear-cut of answer on the topic. Nevertheless, what we do understand is that companies like PureKana and GreenRoads are paving the way to alternative medical health, helping people from all 50 states by shipping their CBD Oil directly to patient’s doorsteps.

Whether it’s legal, or borderline, it seems to be working for millions of people all over the U.S. Here are the top conditions that CBD Hemp Oil seems to be helping with.

Ailments That CBD Oil Seems to Help With:

  1. Cancer and cancer treatments
  2. Epilepsy and other neurological disorders
  3. Anxiety and depression
  4. Insomnia and sleep disorders
  5. Pain and inflammation
  6. Diabetes and diabetic nerve pain
  7. Cardiovascular disease
  8. Arthritis
  9. Spasms
  10. Multiple Sclerosis
  11. PTSD
  12. Stress relief

Final Thoughts About CBD and Where to Start

CBD Hemp Oil has definitely become the next big thing in the medical world, and if you purchase CBD oil from a trustworthy and verified company that has mastered the CO2 extraction process (a method that uses supercritical carbon dioxide to extract the active compound), you may benefit from synergistic terpenoids, cannabinoids, essential oils and other compounds from the raw plant material. These compounds are known to interact with the network of receptors that make up our body’s endocannabinoid system, or ECS.

Simply put, the ECS is a chemical balancing system that regulates and maintains homeostasis across many different organ and cell types in our bodies; a veritable “modulator of well-being” that could (according to some doctors) be the single most important thing to helping us live a long, healthy, and fulfilling life.

If you’re searching for a natural path towards renewed health and well-being, PureKana would be an excellent place to start. They have an extensive product line that is continuously expanding, and they offer a full range of products that many customers say can help combat various medical conditions. They were also voted the best CBD brand of 2017 and 2018.
