There’s been lots of buzz about CBD oil in the wellness world, so I thought I’d dedicate a LIVE WELL post to digging in a little on the topic.
To give some background, CBD, or more formally, cannabidiol is not a psychoactive compound like THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is the compound found in marijuana that makes a person feel “high.” And even though CBD is not psychoactive, it can still get a bad rap from some for simply being a compound of the marijuana plant. In reality, though, it’s actually an amazing natural healing tool that has several health benefits and applications.
Some of the most common benefits include:
- Pain relief
- Could help to reduce anxiety and depression
- Aids with insomnia
- Can help treat symptoms related to cancer and cancer treatments
- Acts as an anti-inflammatory and helps with acne
I’ve made a point in my life to be more aware of natural alternatives instead of racing to get on an antibiotic every time I’m sick. Of course, you should visit with your doctor before making any changes to your health regiment, but CBD oil has definitely earned a spot in the conversation, in my opinion.
Would love to hear from anyone who has incorporated CBD oil into their wellness routine and how it worked for you!
