If you haven't heard all the talk about CBD oil everywhere, you soon will. CBD (Cannabidiol) is derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant. It is one of 113 identified cannabinoids in cannabis plants and accounts for up to 40% of the plant's extract. It is NATURAL. It comes from a PLANT!
Some people use CBD topically, some take it via sublingual method, others like to add it to their post-workout smoothie or drink it with their morning coffee. There is even hemp-derived CBD coffee.
Regardless of how CBD oil is taken, the important thing to note is that it should be extracted directly from a hemp plant, not synthetically modified or have any fillers or extra oils (ie: MCT oil, sunflower seed oil etc...) It is also important to mention that according to a report (2017) from the World Health Organization,
“In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or
dependence potential….To date, there is no evidence of public health-related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.”
The most important thing to remember is that the CBD you purchase should be PURE! This is why it is so vital to know where you are getting your CBD from. HempWorx products are made from industrial hemp plants grown on Kentucky (U.S.A.) farms with CBD that naturally occurs in industrial Hemp. It is also CO2-extracted resulting in a solvent free, pure extract.
CBD talk has indeed become the latest trend and it has also been on the forefront of the news media. This is good and it can be bad. The lack of education and research leads to a lot of misconceptions and rumors, as well as articles that can scare the pubic.
Recently, an article came out in Forbes magazine saying that CBD may be harmful to your liver. What they don't focus on and what the general public may not know is that the study they did was based on a synethic form of CBD. It was a study on Epidiolex, which is a CBD-based drug that is used by Big Pharma and is approved to treat two rare forms of epilepsy, Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gestaut syndrome.
Epidiolex is the first
synthetic CBD-based version drug actually made from the plant , which is FDA-approved and sold in the
U.S. However, the plants used are grown at a facility in the U.K. Often times a doctor will prescribe this medication because he or she has judged that the benefit is greater than the risk of side effects. The most common side effects
of Epidiolex includes: sleepiness, elevated liver enzymes, decreased
appetite, diarrhea, rash, fatigue, insomnia, and infections. This does not happen to all patients but it is a possibility.
This does NOT happen with natural, pure hemp-derived CBD.
Epidiolex is an oral solution that is a
clear, colorless to yellow liquid containing cannabidiol at a
concentration of 100 mg/mL. The average price for a year of Epidiolex treatment is about $32,500, CNN reports. The inactive ingredients contained in Epidiolex include dehydrated
alcohol, sesame seed oil, strawberry flavor, and sucralose. This is NOT pure hemp-derived CBD, but of course because it is FDA-approved it will be quite profitable for Big Pharma.
My point is, it is unfair to make a judgement or assumption on CBD based on a study of something that is synthetic and produced by Big Pharma (ie: Epidiolex!)
Just remember to do your own research, read, and make sure that what you choose is as natural as possible. People should have a right to choose plants over prescriptions!
