12 Benefits of CBD oils

Whether or not you live in a state where cannabis is legal, you have likely noticed that products with CBD oil are popping up all over the place. But what exactly is it?  Cannabidiol, also known as CBD is one of the many non-psychoactive compounds in cannabis with lots of healing properties. It is a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compound. It is beneficial to ingest or use topically. It’s great for achy joints, bug bites, eczema and even acne. That’s why it’s showing up in everything from food to beauty products.

Will CBD oil get me high?

CBD is derived from hemp and marijuana plants, but unlike THC, it’s completely non-psychoactive i.e. it won’t make you high. When choosing CBD oil, choose an oil containing hemp oil that is organic, non-GMO, free of pesticides, and other chemicals.

 

What are the benefits of CBD oil?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a “smart” molecule, an adaptogen, a regulator, and a modulator. CBD acts in a comprehensive and dynamic fashion, depending on the situation and location in the brain or body. 

The primary action that CBD works on in our bodies is to help you maintain homeostasis. Homeostasis is the ability to maintain internal stability in our bodies to compensate for environmental changes. So, CBD helps us to maintain balance in the body despite the environment we live in. When the body is out of balance any number of the ailments listed can happen and cause you discomfort and pain.

1. ADHD
2. Anxiety Relief and Stress Support
3. Regulates Pain
4. Reduce the number of Seizures in Epilepsy
5. Aide in Digestion by supporting fat loss & cleansing of your colon
6. Diabetes – High Blood Sugar
7. Reduces Inflammation
8. Neuro-protective properties for head injuries including preventing concussions
9. Depression
10. Supports Heart Health
11. Sleep
12. Migraines

The effects vary based upon the condition of the person taking CBD. Some people use it to alleviate more serious conditions such as seizures, while others use it for feelings of general wellness, such as sleeping better or lower stress levels. Each person is different and will have a unique response to the supplement. It is important for people to be objective in observing the effects in order to find the right individual dose and whether CBD can be helpful.

When CBD is used in beauty applications, it is believed to protect skin from free radicals such as UV rays, smoke, and environmental pollutants… and it may be a powerful antioxidant.

 

Can I take too much?

It is recommended to begin with a small amount and see how you feel.  Some people take too much and have an unpleasant experience. 

Please consult your physician with specific questions you may have. I hope you find this quick overview helpful.

Seven Health Benefits of Oil Pulling

Oil Pulling is one of the most simple things you can do to improve your health and help detoxify your body.
Oil pulling isn’t a new health trend that you are seeing, it is an ancient Ayurvedic ritual dating back over 3,000 years.
So what is oil pulling all about?
What is Oil Pulling?
An ancient Ayurvedic ritual dating back over 3,000 years, oil pulling involves placing a tablespoon of extra virgin organic cold pressed oil (organic coconut oil is an option) into your mouth and then swish it around for up to 5 to 15 minutes pulling it between your teeth before spitting it out.  Don’t swallow the oil as you will ingest the toxins you are trying to cleanse away.  Brush your teeth with an all-natural flouride-free toothpaste, and rinse your mouth out.
Why Oil Pulling?

With your mouth as the home to bacteria, fungus, viruses, and other toxins, the oil acts like a cleanser, pulling out the yukky stuff before they get a chance to spread throughout your body.
This cleanses the immune system, reduces stress, inflammation, and aids your well-being.
Top 7 reasons for making oil pulling a part of your daily routine.
1.  Whitens teeth
Oil pulling reduces the need for chemical teeth whitening strips.  The oil possesses natural antibiotic and antiviral properties that brighten and clean teeth.
2. Increases energy
When our immune sytem is put to work in clearing out toxic waste from our body, it drains our energy levels.  Removing the toxins by oil pulling lowers the amount of work our body has to do to function, which leaves us feeling better.
3. Detoxes the Body
Germs in the body are much like poison causing inflammation and leading to disease/illiness. The mouth is the gatewy for contamination to spread to the rest of the body.  When removing the toxins before they get a chance to spread, the body undergoes a complete detox.
4. Aids hormonal changes
Hormones can function as they shoud, functioning to the best ability without being thrown off balance.
5.  Reduces headaches
When the body is under toxic stress, headaches and migraines occur.  This is nature’s way of asking for some time to recover.  By eliminating bacteria or toxins from the body with oil pulling, headaches can be avoided.
6. Keeps the skin clear
Removing toxins from the body that would make it into the bloodstream means the skin has a chance to shine.  Rashes and skin issues often reduce dramatically and it some cases it can clear up completely.
7. Promotes oral hygiene
Oil pulling is highly effective at reducing tooth cavities and at eradicating bad breath.  It also aids with plaque-induced gingivitis.
When you start oil pulling, you might experience some of the positive effects immediately or it may take a few days or even weeks,  It will depend on your health condition.
