Unlike THC, which primarily binds to CB-1 receptors located in the brain, CBD works in the body by manipulating receptors throughout organ tissues, the immune system, the pain response system, the hormonal system, and other whole-body regulatory systems. Basically, since its receptors have been found to exist in virtually every cell and tissue type in the body, CBD is believed to work on every aspect of human health and behavior – from the subcellular level to the whole-body leve and beyond.

Hemp Extract Oil* and Hemp Oil are from a different Cannabis plant called Cannabis Sativa. Hemp Extract is made from the entire plant including leaf, seed and stem. Most oils on the market selling as C B D oil are 97% or more Hemp Seed Oil, mct oil or vegetable glycerine and 3% Hemp Extract. This does not contain THC and is legal in all 50 states.
CBD oil is also very beneficial in treating the cancer present in your body. Research has proved that CBD reduces as well as prevents the growth of cancer cells in your body. Every cell contains ceramide in it which is responsible for the life or death of the cell. If the ceramide is high in your cells that means your cell will die very soon, whereas low ceramide means that your body cell is strong and will live for a longer period of time.
I'll be 58 on my next birthday and I've worked with my hands most of my life. I love playing guitar but arthritis and latching in my fingers make it difficult to play. I've always just played through the pain and now have found something that has greatly reduced the amount of pain I have. My mobility has increased greatly, not to say I'm playing any better but I sure do feel better when I am playing. BIG shout out to Fab!

I tried two other hemp oils before finally coming to this. IT WORKS! Awesome product that took away my back pain every time before I went to bed. High recommend to anyone who does intense labor or just needs something to get through the day or night. Wish the bottle was a little bigger so it would last longer but regardless I'd recommend over any other so far.
I have idiopathic peripheral neuropathy ... the only thing they found that would work is lyrica. I picked up some CBD oil yesterday morning. I am prescribed to take 75 mg of lyrica 3x per day. I took one yesterday morning and have only used the CBD oil since. I bought the Koi brand, flavored, 250 MG. I used a full dropper yesterday late morning and a full dropper yesterday late afternoon. I used it once today (one full dropper) and I am amazingly pain free.
Mike, what kind of breast cancer (invasive ductal, I presume)? How many of her lymph nodes were positive? How big was the primary tumor? Reason I ask is that in women with Stage I or IIA tumors that are estrogen-and progesterone-receptor-positive and HER2-negative (ER+/PR+/HER2-) with three or fewer positive lymph nodes, there is a genomic assay test on a sample of the tumor, called OncotypeDX, that will tell doctors whether chemo is necessary or would even work at all. Medicare covers that test 100%.That type of breast cancer mentioned above, which I had as Stage IA, is treated in postmenopausal women with anti-estrogen drugs called aromatase inhibitors(aka AIs: anastrazole, letrozole, or exemestane)which have as a side effect joint pain. CBD oil is effective for this joint pain it is not, I repeat, NOT a substitute for chemo, radiation or these anti-estrogen drugs.So don’t assume your mom’s cancer will require chemo; but if it does, CBD helps with those side effects as well. If she lives in a state where medical marijuana is legal, there are doctors who sub-specialize in certifying applications for a medical marijuana card, and in the interim before the card is issued can advise as to the appropriate dose of CBD oil (legal and over-the-counter in all 50 states). Some (though not most) medical oncologists will certify their own patients’ medical marijuana card applications so she need not seek out another doctor; and will advise the appropriate dose for her symptoms. Once she gets her card, the “budtenders” in the licensed dispensaries can advise her as to the right CBD product (with or without THC), strength, and dosage. If she lives in a state where recreational weed is legal, the “budtenders” in the marijuana shops can steer her to the right strength of CBD oil and the right dosage.
CBD is a safe, long-term aid which is why it has gained such momentum and why our customers are turning to it for relief. CBD, scientifically known as cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive, natural compound found in the hemp plant. When it interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system, CBD provides powerful health benefits without the side effects of conventional drugs.
These are one of the most popular (and effective) choices for arthritis and other forms of localized pain and inflammation. Since the skin acts as an excellent semi-permeable membrane that “let’s the good stuff and keeps the bad stuff out,” rubbing CBD-infused creams into the affected area has proved to be quite effective in terms of both pain and inflammation reduction.
Since it started becoming popular roughly two years or so ago, the general consensus has always been that since CBD oil from top brands does not contain the psychoactive properties of THC, it is therefore legal. Unfortunately, its legality is much more nuanced because of conflicting federal laws and new court cases. What is clear is that in one of the most recent court decisions on the topic, Hemp Industries Assoc. v. DEA, which came out on April 30, 2018, the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit found that Section 7606 of the 2014 US Farm Bill (the “Farm Bill”) preempts the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), the federal law which designates marijuana as a Schedule I substance (along with heroin and cocaine) making it illegal to possess or use. This means that when there is conflict between the CSA and the Farm Bill, the Farm Bill wins out.
My pain has lessened and my sleep pattern has improved. I must have REM sleep as I remember my dreams now. The first two days of taking CBD oil, the white sore on my subliminal saliva gland which was there for months and made the sublingual area tight and sore disappeared. I cancelled my oral surgeon appt. after the my second opinion dentist didn’t see an issue. But, the recommended dose at night kept me awake so I discontinued the CBD. Then I decided it was working so I restarted it with a lower dose in the morning and the pain and sleep noticeably improved with this regimen, so I am sticking with it.
I have/had ovarian/primary peritoneal cancer. I used thc/cbd oil pills I self made from the start. I am supposedly their “poster child”. I went thru with chemo and surgery. Oh that horror! But when I tried to tell two seperate doctors, the surgeon was all about it, and my oncologist threw a fit and said it was an anecdote. There are more than 100 studies at the NIH govt website.
I just started taking CBD oil , I am on my 2nd Hip replacement surgery due to device failures looking at a 3rd surgery. Has you can imagine the pain, stress and anxiety levels are off the charts. Especially at an otherwise healthy 54 yr women. So i understand from reading posts its best to take it under the tongue. I am taking 1-2 ml a day. I can tell some difference,is your recommended dosage. I am using for pain , stress and sleep. I appreciate your feedback.
Excellent comprehensive article on CBD Oil. I was injured in 2 auto accidents in 2 years when hit from behind twice while stopped. As a result, I have been on Opioids since 2000. Luckily, I am not addicted and am able to take them only when in severe pain. I have Oxycodone & Morphine 3X per day. I have Osteoarthritis in my knees that is very painful, and in my spine , neck, jaw, hands – it’s everywhere. I also have Fibromyalgia. I had Neck surgery – Fusions on 3 cervical discs because I was unable to hold my head up. The surgery helped, but I still have neck pain. I am a grandmother and I have to say Cannabis is a Miracle Drug. I only take a tiny bit in a pipe and it works immediately. I am able to get by on only a third of my Opioids – 1 Oxycodone & 1 Morphine daily when smoking Cannabis. I have CBD oil too. I have been wanting to try a different kind and now know what to try for better efficacy. CBD helps, but I need the THC. Cannabis is truly a miracle drug in all forms. I just hope it will be legal where I live soon. Thanks again for your in depth CBD article.

As soon as my anxiety rose to a point where I needed something to help ease it, I knew I did not want to turn to typical drug store/pill solutions. Thinking about possible negative side effects and not knowing what exactly I would be putting in my body scares me, I prefer trying holistic remedies for health issues. I immediately bought Soul CBD (…and guys, the lemon lime tastes AMAZING) and easily integrated it into my morning routine. The results… (drum roll pls) my entire mindset, mood, body, and feelings were elevated throughout the day and I no longer felt the effects of anxiety. Hello calmness!! Not only does Soul CBD help reduce my anxiety significantly, I also have had positive results when taking it to help sleep better and ease bad headaches. I trust not only the brand, but Angie Lee with the highest grade products available to purchase. Thank you so much for helping heal me!
Pros: This item is organic and produced in the USA. The appearance of the oil is very much like extra virgin olive oil, as it should be. It has a green shade indicating that it is full spectrum and unrefined. Nature’s Blueprint also added natural peppermint to make it more palatable. I think it tastes fine straight from the dropper, but it can also be added to a smoothie of some sort or maybe hot tea? I appreciate that it has a clear label for the supplement facts and dosing. If you ever buy something that doesn’t, I certainly wouldn’t take it.
