CBD Facts

The health benefits of CBD have nothing to do with voodoo

But CBD has some seemingly powerful mojo. Unlike THC—the psychoactive component

in a classic joint or weed brownie—it won’t get you high. Yet it may help regulate mood

and chronic pain, and reduce inflammation.



“CBD is an extraordinary compound,” says Sanford Wolgel, Ph.D., former chief science

officer at Cannabistry Labs. There’s strong evidence CBD can dial down anxiety—makes

sense, since CBD seems to increase levels of your body’s natural mood-regulating

compounds. A CBD-based epilepsy medication was approved by the FDA in late June,

and CBD has been found to curtail inflammation in mice.

But that’s all science has proved.“The research on CBD is very early,” notes Jordan

Tishler, M.D., a Harvard-trained doc who is an expert on using cannabis as medical

treatment. Experts suspect some of the reported feel-good perks come down to the

placebo effect (or clever marketing).

ReneeBeck, a 34-year-old who uses a CBD lotion on her feet after her half-marathon

training runs, hears that. “I’m probably feeling the cooling effect more than the CBD,”

she says. Still, it seems to make the pain from her foot injury more manageable, so she

uses it—along with physical therapy exercises—to keep her aches in check.

CBD is no magic pill (or oil or edible or, well, you get the picture). But if you want to see if

it can take the edge off your anxiety or reduce post-workout aches, you’ll have to put in

some effort to find an effective product.



First, something you should keep in mind: CBD is illegal on a federal level.

Yes, even if you live in a state where recreational or medical marijuana is allowed. That

said, the likelihood of the law coming after you for ordering CBD-spiked coffee or buying

CBD creams is low.

“Technically, possessing CBD products is a federal misdemeanor—but I’m not aware of

anyone who’s been charged,” says Mark A.R. Kleiman, Ph.D., a professor of public policy

at New York University Marron Institute of Urban Management.



Another thing: Physicians can't actually write a prescription for CBD (because of that

whole not-being-legal thing), but they can recommend that you take it, and even advise a

dose or a brand to look for.

It's also not available at a pharmacy, nor is it covered buy insurance, but some insurers

will let you use your health savings account (HSA) to pay for it.

Sure, CBD sounds great, but you've got to know what to look for.

Reefer retail has no regulator.“It’s like the Wild West out there,” says Marcel Bonn-Miller,

Ph.D., a researcher at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine who

studies cannabis. In 2017 he tested 84 CBD products and found 26 percent contained

less CBD than they claimed to, while 43 percent had more.

Nutrition Information

NUTRIENT RICH Hemp contains an excellent nutritional value, providing essential nutritional components called essential fatty acids that the human body does not produce naturally, and must be consumed by the diet. Further, emerging scientific research supports the consumption of CBD from hemp oil for general well-being. NON-PSYCHOTOXIC Agricultural hemp keeps you healthy, doesn’t get you “high.” ECO-FRIENDLY Not only is hemp renewable and fast-growing, nearly every part of the plant is useable - for food, fiber, building materials, and fuel, with an estimated 25,000 uses! GOOD FOR THE EARTH Hemp sequesters CO2 and doesn’t need herbicides to thrive. It also leaves the soil in better condition than before it was planted.

What is CBD?

WHAT IS CBD? LEARN ABOUT CBD FROM PLUS CBD OIL™Cannabidiol or CBD, is a promising phytocannabinoid found in agricultural hemp. It has been recognized for its benefits on human and animal health and is capable of affecting nearly every biological process. CBD is non-psychotoxic (i.e. it does not result in feelings of euphoria) and has a remarkable safety profile.Plus CBD Oil is derived from agricultural hemp, and provides cannabinoids, naturally occurring vitamin E and fatty acids.Phytocannabinoids like CBD, of which well over 100 have been found to exist, are plant derivatives that ‘talk’ to just about every major organ system in the body via the endocannabinoid system (ECS), helping restore normal balance and physiologic homeostasis.

The Major Benefits of Hemp Oil for Your Brain and Body

Benefits of Hemp Oil

Health is a huge topic these days, and there are so many ways to address it. An abundance of exercise DVDs, equipment and trainings are at your disposal. There are countless dietary lifestyles you can adapt to in order to feed your body with the right nutrition.

While we’re all trying to do the right things for our body, what about our brain? After recent years of countless studies, we can no longer deny that we’ve got to exercise and feed our brains as well.

Some of the benefits of a healthy brain are efficiently coping with stress, having a sharp memory, and overall peace of mind. It is increasingly obvious that what we ingest directly affects our brain’s performance. Hemp oil products are actually one way of positively affecting not only the body but especially the brain.

Cannabinoids Aren’t as Alien as We Might Think

Did you know that the brain produces its own cannabinoids? After many decades of researching the health benefits of cannabis, science has not only made some important discoveries about this breed of plant but also uncovered a unique communication system in the brain called the endocannabinoid (EC) system. This system carries the hefty responsibility of taking care of some of our major bodily functions like how we feel, move and react (1).

The body generates cannabinoids to interact within the EC system so that they can work to regulate those major functions. However, the amount of cannabinoids that the brain produces on its own is so small that it is recommended to supplement. Supplements include products like hemp oil or cannabidiol (i.e., CBD). The benefits of hemp oil are particularly astounding: it may provide sleep support and improve appetite, aid stress and mood, and even provide joint support. Quite frankly, hemp was made for our brains!

Why Hemp?

When people think of hemp, sometimes the knee-jerk reaction is to think of medicinal marijuana. While there are many beneficial functions of both of these natural ingredients, they are only cousins in the cannabis family and are not inherently similar.

Dr. Oz explains, in one of his shows, the important differences and why hemp is actually a great resource for brain nutrients, especially omega-3 fatty acids. While you can get these fatty acids from any number of foods, hemp is uniquely designed by nature to work with our brains (2).

The Major Benefits of Hemp Oil

The major functions in your brain depend on sufficient cannabinoid production. Fatty acids omega-3 and -6 as well as linoleic acid are all responsible for producing cannabinoids. Omega-3 is especially important because of its function in repairing damaged brain cells. Those cells can be damaged because of stress and our not-so-awesome food choices like processed foods and those high in sugar, salt and bad fat.

To keep our brains active and our memories sharpened, our brain cells need to be “fluid and flexible,” as Dr. Oz puts it. Funnily enough, hemp oil has the unique content of fatty acids and the perfect ratio of linoleic acid to alpha linoleic acid that help the brain function at its optimal level. Hemp is one of the very few ingredients found in nature that have the uncannily perfect balance of nutrition that completely coincides with the brain’s need for cannabinoids (3).

More Great Things About Hemp Oil

Hemp oil benefits don’t stop at your brain! Your skin and hair take advantage of hemp’s nutrients, making it a great addition to your beauty products and routine. Fatty acids produce not only brain cells but also skin cells. In the same way, omega-3 fatty acids replenish moisture and the natural oils of your hair, giving it strength and shine. Hemp oil also contains enough omega-3 to help support the development of the microorganisms that live in our intestines. With their development and fortitude, your body can fight the flu and common cold more easily.

Did you know there’s also CBD for pets? Hemp oil is known to help in mood and aggression disorders. Magnesium, being the “relaxation mineral” of the body, is directly affected by hemp, calming the body. Hemp oil also helps withmetabolism and with delivering antioxidants to almost any mammal. The prolonged life of your pet, another one of the many benefits of hemp oil, can probably be attributed to that fact.

Apart from ridding our bodies of toxins, our kidneys are also responsible for maintaining salt, sodium and other minerals in our bodies. They also produce the hormones that stimulate our red blood cell production and the enzymes that regulate our blood pressure. Hemp oil can replenish our kidneys with fatty acids, taking care of those hormones and enzymes so that they can take care of us.

The benefits of hemp oil are innumerable and powerful, not just for your brain but also for many other parts of your body, both inside and out. While all these attributes may seem extraordinary, hemp oil is a simple enough ingredient to add to your diet.A recipe perfected by nature itself, hemp is, quite frankly, one of the greatest components for our health. The things this single ingredient can do, fortunately for us, are quite impressive.
