What Are Benefits of CBD Oil?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is the most predominant cannabinoid in hemp and has many nutritive properties. CBD can promote a sense of wellbeing, prepare you for relaxation, soothe physical discomforts, and has even been found to influence the endocannabinoid system’s production of anandamide in the body (famously known as the “bliss molecule”).

In its patent (#6,630,507) titled CANNABINOIDS AS ANTIOXIDANTS AND NEUROPROTECTANTS, the U.S. federal government makes many impressive claims about CBD, stating that:

  • “Cannabinoids are potent antioxidants… they easily penetrate tissues giving them the ability to enter the central nervous system and brain.”
  • “Non-psychoactive cannabinoids such as CBD are particularly advantageous as they are non-toxic… and exhibit unique antioxidant properties without the undesirable effects of THC.”
  • “The antioxidant strength of CBD is significantly greater than that of either Vitamin C or Vitamin E.”

Research on Safety

CBD hemp oil is safe for the whole family, and more scientific studies are validating this all the time. Among the most prominent health care professionals who support the use of non-psychoactive CBD is physician and researcher William Courtney, M.D. Some of his research is here.
