New products are heading over to Mountainside Medical Equipment! Introducing our brand new CBD Products: CBD Muscle & Joint Pain Relief Cream, CBD Multiple Relief Gummies, Purest CBD Oil, and CBD Topical Pain Relief Cream.
CBD - or Cannabidiol - has a wide range of health benefits that are well established. The endocannabinoid system is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems. CBD specifically interacts with CB1 and CB2 receptors that send signals to wake up and strengthen the immune system naturally.
Our endocannabinoid system is intricately linked to our nervous, immune, and digestive systems and brain. High quality CBD is an actual effective form of nourishment to our endocannabinoid system. Before we look at our new products, let's first explore exactly what CBD Hemp Oil is, and the benefits of it.
CBD Hemp Oil: Benefits, Uses & Side Effects
What is CBD Oil?
CBD Hemp Oil is the product that is derived from the hemp plant, which is high is CBD and low in THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol. This oil has received a large amount of attention in recent years, due to the growing wave of marijuana legislation and debate in many countries. While cannabis and marijuana is still illegal in many places, as more is being learned about CBD and its potential effects on health, it is becoming more accepted as a legal and safe remedy for a wide variety of health conditions.
CBD Oil has a minimal amount of the psychotropic compound THC, which means that the use of this oil does not result in a traditional "high", so its effects are generally considered therapeutic, not mind altering. This statement makes its use and legality more widespread.
As stated above, CBD Hemp Oil has a huge range of potential health benefits and uses, including reducing pain, soothing anxiety, fighting cancer, improving mood, eliminating depression, preventing inflammatory arthritis, protecting the immune system, balancing the metabolism, aiding sleep disorders, and healing the skin, among others. CBD Oil can also be used in many different ways and has a variety of applications for natural health.
CBD Hemp Oil Benefits
Relieves Pain: CBD Oil, due to its analgesic properties, is commonly recommended for chronic pain of all kinds, ranging from back pain to the full body agony of cancer. It can disrupt the activity of pain receptors in the body, and instead cause a release of neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and dopamine, both of which are chemicals in the brain that can ease discomfort and pain.
Treats Nausea: CBD Oil can actually cure nausea and vomiting. The non-psychotropic components of this oil activate certain auto receptors, which cause anti-nausea effects in the body.
Lowers Inflammation: When it comes to inflammation, some people can only find relief with CBD oil, especially those who have advanced cases of rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, migraines, joint disorders, and pervasive muscle pain. In some cases, people have reported extreme improvement in the inflammatory symptoms of chronic diseases.
Reduces Anxiety: CBD Hemp Oil is well known to reduce feelings of anxiety and stress, as well as prevent depressive episodes by increasing the levels of positive hormones and neurotransmitters in the body. Unlike marijuana, CBD oil does not make one paranoid or anxious. This is largely due to the psychotropic THC found in cannabis.
Prevent Alzheimer's Disease: A number of studies have connected the use of CBD with decreased occurrence and severity of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's and Huntington's Disease. This presents yet another exciting development for medical researchers, given the persistent challenges to finding effective solutions for those conditions.
Treats Epilepsy: Highly concentrated doses of CBD oil have been successfully used to treat epilepsy in a number of research studies. The physical and neurological regulatory properties of CBD oil represent an exciting new solution for people with epilepsy.
Prevents Cancer: Another major reason why CBD oil has been positively received in some parts of the medical community is its apparent effect on cancer and tumor growth. In multiple studies, the use of CBD oil - even direct injection into tumors - has resulted in tumor reduction or elimination. The antioxidants in CBD hemp oil also provide anti-mutagenic properties and lower users' risk of cancer.
Anti-Psychotic: Studies performed on animals and humans have found that CBD Oil has anti-psychotic properties, too. The research supports the idea that this oil could be a possible therapeutic option in treating psychosis, such as schizophrenia.
Promotes Good Sleep: There is a strong sedative quality to CBD hemp oil, making it a popular remedy for people with insomnia, sleeplessness, interrupted sleep, post traumatic stress disorder, restless leg disorder, and other nighttime issues. Inhaling a small amount of CBD oil, applying it to your chest, or even putting a few drops on your pillow can help you get a good night's sleep.
Boosts Immunity: The majority of cannabinoids have been proven to have positive effects on the body's immune system, particularly CBD oil, as it can help regulate overactive immune systems. This means less susceptibility to allergens, and a possible application for autoimmune diseases.
Controls Diabetes: Studies show that cannabidiol present in CBD oil can help control diabetes and lower the level of insulin. Although a lot more research needs to be done in this area of study, initial studies have laid the foundation for the use of CBD oil to lower the risk of Diabetes.
Controls Appetite: CBD Oil is known to control appetite due to the release of certain hormones in the body that control hunger and satiety. By optimizing the levels of these hormones based on the actual needs of your body, you can establish a healthy appetite.
Promotes Heart Health: CBD Oil is highly beneficial for the cardiovascular system too. It enhances the vasorelaxation of the arteries, protecting it against the vascular damage caused by inflammation in a high glucose environment. As always, deeper studies need to be made in order to fully explore the proper dosage and effects on cardiovascular health.
Skin Care: Improving the appearance of the skin, especially reducing the sigs and symptoms of eczema and acne, are great benefits of regular CBD oil use. Topical application is quite popular for this, whether diluted or undiluted form, depending on the severity of the skin affliction. The powerful anti-inflammatory properties of the oil can also soothe redness, itchiness, and swollen areas of the skin.
Reduces Drug Relapses: The non-psychoactive constituent of Cannabis Sativa, cannabidiol, has therapeutic uses in treating psychiatric disorders. It is used to fight alcoholism and cocaine addiction, which means it reduces alcohol and drug relapses.

Potential Side Effects & Risks of CBD Oil
There are a few possible side effects to using CBD Oil, such as: fatigue, dry mouth, lightheadedness, hypotension, and impaired motor functions. However, when used in moderate amounts, most people do not experience these side effects, and none of them are known for being fatal or particularly dangerous, with the exception of hypotension.
Though more than 20,000 studies have been done in the last 15 years on cannabis, hemp, and cannabinoids, and the results have been overwhelmingly supportive of the therapeutic potential and viability of CBD oil, some people should still be cautious and consult with their physician before using this powerful oil.
Potential side effects and risks from CBD Oil include:
1. Low Blood Pressure: One of the most notable and soothing benefits of CBD oil is its effect on blood pressure, helping protect against heart disease, and promoting calmness in the body. However, if you are already taking prescription medication for hypertension (or, high blood pressure), combining that with CBD oil can potentially cause dangerously low blood pressure - or, hypotension.
2. Appropriate Use: Since sedation, fatigue, and lightheadedness are known effects of CBD hemp oil, particularly when consumed in large amounts, it is important that you don't operate heavy machinery or attempt to drive while under the effects of this therapeutic oil.
3. Motor Functions: The sluggishness that many people associate with being a "high", can actually be a side effect of concentrated CBD Oil use, resulting in motor function impairment. This effect is temporary and passes in a matter of hours.
4. Weight Gain: Appetite stimulation, or at least regulation, is a side effect of CBD Oil. If you are already struggling with obesity, be sure to monitor your intake of food to prevent overeating, and additional weight gain.
5. Oil Quality: The most dangerous aspect of CBD Oil is potentially using low-quality oil or CBD oil that hasn't been properly produced. It is imperative to research brands and pay attention to consumer reports concerning these oils.
6. Pregnancy: Research on the use of CBD Oil during pregnancy is unfortunately lacking, but most experts do not recommend it. Other anecdotal reports support its use, particularly for aching muscles, anxiety, or depression. Before using this or any essential oil while pregnant, always speak to your doctor.
