Are you suffering from chronic pain? Or maybe you’re; one of the many troubled by anxiety or some form of depression or insomnia? If so, then read on as you may benefit from using CBD oil in its many forms; increasing in popularity, it has shown promise as an alternative remedy for a wide range of illnesses. CBD oil is available in many forms, which can include –
- Gel Capsules
- Edible forms – gummies
- CBD e-liquid
- Oral liquid Tinctures
But Wait, Isn’t It Illegal?
The first question some have when asking about CBD oil is quickly answered. The full name for CBD oil is Cannabidiol, and while it is one of over one hundred compounds from the host Cannabis plant, unlike Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it is not psychoactive, so it won’t get you high. CBD oil does contain small amounts of THC, but as long as the level is below 0.2% in the original hemp plant, then your CBD oil is perfectly legal in the UK; if you’re reading in a different country, please check what the legality is where you are to be safe.
Taking CBD oil
Most forms of CBD oil involve taking the oil orally either in the form of some sort of edible, a capsule or adding CBD to recipes you’ve found it works with. This is relatively straightforward, so I’m not going to focus too much on this simple process. There is a different way of accessing the benefits of CBD oil, and that is vaping, with the CBD infused in a CBD e-liquid, available in a range of strengths and mouth-watering flavours. So, what do you need to know about vaping CBD e-liquid?
Vaping CBD E-Liquid
If you are new to vaping, your first step would be to purchase a nice simple, easy-to-use vape device such as a vape pen. This type of vape incorporates an internal rechargeable battery, push to use operation, and a refillable tank. CBD e-liquid contains the usual e-liquid ingredients: Vegetable Glycerine or VG, Propylene Glycol (PG), food-based flavouring, and CBD oil in various amounts. The e-liquid is added to the tank, which contains a coil; inside the coil is a wicking material that soaks up the e-liquid; when heat is added from the battery, the vapour is produced.
So, Who Can Benefit?
There are an increasing number of studies finding evidence that CBD oil can benefit a person’s health in many ways. One of the most significant properties of CBD oil is giving relief to sufferers of chronic pain such as arthritis or joint pain; it can be used as an alternative to prescription medication. This is because, in simple terms, it reduces the activity of the neurotransmitters in the nervous system. Other illnesses in which investigations have found CBD oil be of use include –
- Anxiety & Depression
- Sleep Disorders
- Epilepsy & other seizure disorders
- Cancer & Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
If you are looking for relief from the symptoms of one of the illnesses listed above, I hope this short article has given you a new understanding of what might be available today. Take some time to explore the wealth of further information online to see if you can get some benefit from CBD oil.
