CBD Oil Effects

 

What is CBD Oil?

CBD oil (or more accurately: hemp extract) is an extract rich in cannabidiol (CBD) and other cannabinoids/compounds from the industrial hemp plant. It can be extracted by a variety of methods such as the botanical solvent ethanol, lipid extraction or supercritical CO2. Although these methods are common methods of extraction, only one, ethanol, is both polar and nonpolar allowing for the extracting of water and oil soluble compounds. We use ethanol in the extraction process used to create our Kingdom Harvest whole-spectrum products.


CBD Oil Effects

Cannabidiol (CBD) has been researched for decades and promising studies have shown the benefits of cannabidiol in helping aid a variety of inflammatory and stress related conditions. Most studies show cannabidiol to be safe, non-toxic and well tolerated in chronic and high doses. These studies show the potential of CBD as a treatment for a variety of ailments:

Anti-Seizure: Studies have shown cannabidiol to have anti-seizure qualities in animal models. Case studies and user testimonials also show CBD as a potential treatment for drug-resistant epilepsy.

Anti-Inflammatory: CBD is an anti-inflammatory and may help with pain associated with arthritis and scoliosis as well as general aches and soreness.

Neuroprotectant/Anti-oxidant: Research also shows cannabidiol as an anti-oxidant and has neuroprotective properties that may help prevent or treat neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease.

Anxiolytic: CBD reduces both mental and physical measures of stress and anxiety in both animal models and humans.

Anti-emetic: Cannabidiol has been shown to decrease nausea and vomiting in case studies.
