CBD oil benefits may never rise to the level of antibiotics and cancer drugs when it comes to their overall effect on humankind, but many doctors are now recommending CBD hemp products as a viable complimentary therapy to a host of common ailments. 

There are millions of people all over the world that have discovered that hemp oil does bring a level of pain and symptom relief that is close to miraculous. What is truly amazing is the range of symptoms that people have found relief from by taking CBD Hemp Oil.

Below is just a glimpse of the many issues that patients report feeling relief from when using CBD oil:

The compounds found inside hemp oil are not new by any means, however, because of some unfortunate circumstances, the hemp plant and the products made from the hemp plant (Cannabis Sativa Hemp) was covered by the same federal ban that covered marijuana in many countriee including the United States & Canada.  

Things have changed for the better recently, it was announced that the total ban on Hemp and all of its derived products was lifted and it is now completely legal in all 50 states. So, that means you can get a wide range of health benefits that have been known for years anywhere in the US or Canada. 

What exactly is Hemp Oil?

CBD Hemp Oil is a liquid product that is derived from the Cannabis Hemp plant and it contains a substance called cannabinol (one of the 100-plus Cannabiods) found in the Hemp plant. Cannabinol is the second most common of all the substances behind THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) which are found in the Cannabis Sativa plants. 

The most important thing to know is that is the reason for all the fuss by the federal government is the level of THC between the two varieties of the Cannabis Sative plants. The Hemp plant has virtually no THC (produces psychoactive “high” feeling when consumed) and the Marijuana variety contains 20-times the THC level. 

It was discovered that the cannabinoids in the Hemp and Marijuana plants have a medicinal effect on the human body’s endogenous cannabinoid system. With that knowledge and the fact that CBD Hemp Oil contains minute or zero THC, its use is legal throughout the country and most of the world. 

The CBD Hemp Oil also contains a number of other nutrients that are beneficial to the body. The substance cannabinol also contains minerals, vitamins, phytonutrients, and antioxidants. The combination of the medicinal benefits and nutritional gains is no wonder why it is gaining such a wide acceptance around the US and the world.
