CBD is short for cannabidiol, which is a major cannabinoid found in cannabis. CBD is absorbed naturally by the body’s endocannabinoid system which may help with things like pain and stress management, hormone regulation, immune function, and sleep.
Cannabinoids occur naturally in the body, so CBD oil has been known to be quite effective in dealing with several ailments and illnesses because the body naturally attracts and accepts them.
CBD derived from industrial hemp carries many of the same positive effects of marijuana but is not psychoactive, so users will not feel the “high”.
CBD hemp oil may assist with pain and inflammation reduction and encourages a sense of well-being and calmness. Many people have reported a boost in mental alertness and cognitive function. It also acts as an antioxidant solution to preserve vitality and health. Hemp oil may also reduce blood sugar levels, risk of arterial blockages, and vomiting and nausea.
CBD oil may help with epilepsy, Alzheimer’s, dementia, depression, anxiety, autism, arthritis, glaucoma, schizophrenia, autoimmune disorders, neurodegenerative disorders, neuropathy, Tourette’s Syndrome, and multiple sclerosis (MS). It may also be used to reduce symptoms and side effects of pain, inflammation, insomnia, nausea, and vomiting. Many people turn to CBD as a smoking cessation solution as well.
Recent research also suggests that CBD may be very beneficial for its anti-tumor properties.
As CBD will not get you “high,” it can be used by adults and animals.

CBD oil can be ingested through tinctures, oral sprays and edible treats. When using a tincture, we recommend a beginning dose of 0.5 mL per serving, taken twice daily approximately 12 hours apart. Our full spectrum CBD hemp oil is infused with Medium-Chain Triglycerides (MCT) oil which provides the essential fatty acids we often miss in our daily diet.
For those seeking immediate relief, vaping CBD hemp oil is the way to go. It is also more convenient and travel-friendly than tincture bottles when you have an on-the-go need. For instance, if you encountered a stressful situation and anxiety sets in, a few quick pulls on the vape pen may put you at ease within seconds. Our CBD Vape Oil is derived from hemp and is full spectrum (whole-plant) and infused with 100% vegetable glycerin.
Animals can partake of hemp oil the same way as humans can with an ingestible CBD hemp oil for pets. Our full spectrum CBD hemp oil for pets is a little less potent for our furry friends and may help the tail-waggers with a host of ailments such as pain, nausea, anxiety and more. Hemp oil is a natural supplement for our four-legged friends as many pet medications can be very harsh and have debilitating side effects, plus it won’t get your pet “high.”
It is believed by the scientific community that whole-plant or full spectrum CBD hemp oil (rather than CBD isolate) is more beneficial for the body. By retaining as much of the plant’s life force as possible it allows for a wider range of cannabinoids and terpenes and is more beneficial for the body as it creates a collaboration that works in conjunction with our body’s own endocannabinoid system. This works to do several things such as affect multiple areas in the body, improve absorption, overcome defense mechanisms that may inhibit absorption and minimize unwanted side effects. This effect is called the “entourage effect.”
Like all things, CBD oil can have side effects for some users. For some, CBD oil may not provide relief. Certain individuals may have an allergic reaction. It is also recommended that those who are undergoing fertility treatments should suspend usage during fertility treatments. Consult your doctor if you have any concerns.
Results may not be immediate at first when ingesting CBD hemp oil as it could take anywhere from a few hours to three weeks depending on the person and his or her lifestyle factors. We recommend the starting dose of 0.5 mL taken twice daily 12 hours apart for three weeks before adjusting your dose. This is referred to as “three weeks to steady.” For more immediate results, one can vape CBD hemp oil instead as it may provide immediate results for conditions such as anxiety, inflammation and headaches to name a few.
