To make matters more confusing, nine states (including California, Washington, and Colorado) let residents buy cannabis-based products with or without THC. Nearly two dozen other “medical marijuana states” allow the sale of cannabis, including capsules, tinctures, and other items containing CBD or THC, at licensed dispensaries to people whose doctors have certified that they have an approved condition (the list varies by state but includes chronic pain, PTSD, cancer, autism, Crohn’s disease, and multiple sclerosis). Sixteen more states legalized CBD for certain diseases.
CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis (marijuana). While CBD is an essential component of medical marijuana, it is derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant. While CBD is a component of marijuana (one of hundreds), by itself it does not cause a “high.” According to a report 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.”
First of all, we have to bring it to your attention that there are CBD oil scams out there. However, the unscrupulous companies involved in these schemes don’t use high-quality CBD in their products. Pure CBD oil of the highest quality is extracted from industrial hemp via CO2 extraction, and such organizations that use quality oil also include independent third-party lab testing results of their products to guarantee both purity and content.
CBD may offer an option for treating different types of chronic pain. A study from the European Journal of Pain showed, using an animal model, CBD applied on the skin could help lower pain and inflammation due to arthritis. Another study demonstrated the mechanism by which CBD inhibits inflammatory and neuropathic pain, two of the most difficult types of chronic pain to treat. More study in humans is needed in this area to substantiate the claims of CBD proponents about pain control.
Along those same lines, most over-the-counter medications have side effects. At this point, the side effects from CBD have been very minimal and very minor. There have been some complaints of tiredness, upset stomach and a few cases of diarrhea. Outside of those few side effects most people have stated they have encountered minor side effects or none at all.
There are many additional benefits offered by CBD Oil to bodybuilders. It can be used to reduce pain and inflammation, acheive better quality sleep and rest (important for muscle recovery and repair), increase appetite, help with strengthening bones and joints, manage stress, anxiety and depression, and (common for many bodybuilders) reduce constipation. Because CBD is a modulator it will work through the CB1 and CB2 brain receptors to respond to imbalances in the body systems.
These products contain high levels of essential fatty acids (EFAs) including linoleic acid, omega-6, alpha-linolenic acid, omega 3, gamma-lineolic acid omega-6, stearidonic acid, and omega-3. Just 15ml per day of hemp oil (derived from hemp seeds) provides the entire daily human requirement of essential fatty acids. Hemp seed oil provides 9kcal/g and it is very low in saturated fatty acids. Hemp seeds contain all 20 amino acids including 9 essential amino acids that our bodies do not produce themselves. These amino acids are believed to improve muscle control and normal body maintenance of cells, muscles, tissues and organs.

CBD vaporizer oils can be used in a vaporizer of your choice. They offer a healthy way of inhaling your daily dose of the CBD supplement. Vaping is also a very direct way of ingesting CBD oil because the CBD compounds are absorbed very quickly through the lungs. CBD vape oil comes in convenient pre-filled CBD vape cartridges that connect easily with standard vaporizer batteries, as well as CBD vape liquid that can be used to fill the tanks of liquid-compatible vaporizers.
Hemp-based CBD oil is NOT, I repeat, is NOT the same as raw oil produced from the whole marijuana plant. I’m getting so sick and tired of the marketing out there, I could scream. Cannabidiol from marijuana plants contains THC-A, which is not intoxicating — heating it will convert it to THC-C. This is how large amounts of THC-A can be consumed — the oil from raw marijuana plants has a higher safety profile, too. Once this market is REGULATED (and it will be), there will be very clear distinctions. At the moment, it’s up to the consumer to do his/her homework. Until then, please don’t fall for some of this marketing. Sure, Hemp CBD oil can be useful, but people are being duped into thinking it’s the same thing with the same benefits. IT IS NOT!
The reason so many people are interested in cannabis products that don’t make them high, proponents say, is that CBD helps with everything from pain and nausea to rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, Crohn’s disease, and dementia. CBD is anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, antibacterial, immunosuppressive, and more, says Joseph Cohen, DO, a cannabis doctor in Boulder, CO.
Getting a good night sleep is one of the keys to helping a person lose weight and build muscle. A person who is not getting enough rest has a body that’s not functioning properly. That means the person’s body can’t burn off energy the right way or help build muscle the right way. CBD has been shown to help some people get their sleeping back on track. Another great benefit of CBD is that it does not have the addictive effects that some of the sleep medications, out on the market, do have.
But isn’t that because we are more willing to break our laws? Think about it. Saudi Arabia, for example, has much stricter laws than we do governing every aspect of life. Why aren’t they and countries like them the #1 incarcerators? I’m thinking either because their citizens are more law abiding by nature or are just plain scared of the barbaric punishments.
