‘What is CBD Oil?’
There’s been a buzz about CBD oil (or, cannabidiol oil ) in recent years, not undue to its array of medical and physical benefits. But with so much smoke surrounding CBD oil’s efficacy, it can be difficult to discern the numerous and documented benefits of CBD oil from unsupported claims and campaigns against CBD oil. Simply, CBD oil (also called hemp oil) is a cannabis compound derived from industrial hemp production that offers powerful pain relief without psychoactive side effects. Plainly, CBD oil does not get patients “high” or “stoned.” Rather, CBD oil offers clear-headed relief from a range of ailments, including:
- Pain and discomfort
- Inflammation, arthritis, and other joint conditions
- Anxiety and depression
- Digestive issues, nausea, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Migraines, motion sickness, and mood disorders
‘How Does CBD Oil Work & Why Should I Use it?’
Each CBD oil and topical CBD product utilized by Leader Heights SJN is of the highest integrity, and comprised of only natural ingredients. But just what goes into these products? Each formula has been developed to deliver fast-acting pain relief through three critically important components:
While CBD is readily absorbed by the body and reacts with the endogenous human endocannabinoid receptor system (ECS), emollients, or skin-enriching compounds, are used for application purposes. Each of our CBD oil products uses only naturally-derived emollient bases from organic beeswax, cottonseed oil, shea butter, and jojoba seed oil, delivering pain relief while leaving skin soft and supple.
More commonly known as essential oils, terpenes (C10H16 molecules) are fragrant, organic hydrocarbons that are found naturally in plants’ essential oils. These terpenes give off relaxing and invigorating scents, and are combined with menthol and/or camphor to deeply penetrate the skin and reach the most stubborn pain locked deep within the body.
Every human is born with the endocannabinoid system (ECS), meaning our bodies possess powerful CBD receptors. Found in the mammalian brain, the ECS receptor system largely contributes to the proper functioning and regulation of neurotransmitters. Specifically, CBD oil has been meticulously researched, studied, and identified as an allosteric modulator capable of slowing down neurotransmitter signaling. The discovery of the ECS’ ability to receive CBD has afforded researchers insight into the therapeutic relevance and pain-relieving benefits from CBD application. Although most CBD oils on the market are low in terpenes, we’re proud to offer CBD formulated with Charlotte’s Web cannabidiol, an entirely whole-plant extract derived from a patented cannabis plant that contains nearly zero percent THC, resulting in a completely psychoactive-free, pain-relieving experience.
