Myths have been debunked and the general public have become a lot more aware of how the positive impacts that the oil can have on their health.

How does CBD oil work?

CBD stands for cannabidiol and is a compound found within the cannabis plant. Contrary to popular belief, CBD oil does not alter your state of mind. CBD is an extract of cannabis, but unlike THC, which is one of the best known compounds of cannabis. THC, once heated or cooked, creates a mind-altering state, whereas CBD, has beneficial attributes for the human body. The body has CB receptors, mostly in the brain and control functions such as pain, emotion, mood, balance, appetite and memories.

CBD does not attach themselves to these receptors, but rather promotes the body to use more of the cannabinoids that already exist in the body.

So, what is CBD oil used for?

Bearing in mind that CBD promotes the use of cannabinoids in the body, CBD has a variety of benefits for the body. Not only does it reduce symptoms of various ailments and diseases, but research has shown that it enables the body to produce cells that fight off diseases.

Despite CBD oil being widely unregulated, there has been evidence of CBD oil effectively treating and managing two types of epilepsy.
