Why do people use CBD products?
Why people use CBD products is a complicated questions. If you talk to ten different people and you'll likely get ten different reasons they take CBD products. However, despite all of the chatter, few people really know the uses of CBD. That's because officially, there aren't any. So is everyone crazy? Just taking a series of products that don't do anything for them? No. They aren't crazy. But legally, no one who sells CBD is allowed to tell you what it may or may not do to those who take it.
CBD Oil, made from multiple compounds found inside of the "cannabis sativa" genus of plants, are legally available in 48 US states (excluding Idaho and Iowa). Specifically those CBD products that are manufactured using industrial hemp. Marijuana-derived CBD is only available in states where medical or recreational marijuana use has been legalized. The two plants--hemp and marijuana--are cousins and there is little difference is the CBD oil produced from each. Our products are made with organically-grown hemp.
How CBD interacts with the human body
CBD interacts with the human body's own endocannabinoid system (ECS). This is a biological system, believed to responsible for transmitting a number of cognitive and physiological processes, that influence a person's mood, appetite, pain response, memory and more. The ECS is made up of neurotransmitters that help the central nervous system and peripheral nervous system to operate. Cannabinoids that bind to the receptors in this system can give it a boost. What boost can it give this system? Again, no one can legally answer that question for you. Crazy right? Laws. They can be a real bummer.
Uses for CBD oils and topical salves
Since CBD products are relatively new, their uses are still being studied. Only one CBD-based pharmaceutical has been approved by the FDA so far. However, there are numerous studies underway about how using cannabidiol (CBD) may affect the body in multiple ways. Below we've listed a few studies being conducted, but please note, we are NOT endorsing their findings or lack of findings in any way, shape or form. We're merely helping point potential CBD users in a direction that may broaden their research on the topic of ongoing CBD research.
Ongoing Studies into Cannabidiol
- National Center for PTSD - they are looking into insomnia
- The University of California, San Diego - they are looking into neuropathy
- The University of Kentucky College of Pharmacology - they are looking into arthritis
- The California Pacific Medical Center Research Institute - they are looking into cancer
- Ichan School of Medicine at Mt Sinai Medical Center - they are looking into addiction
These are just a sampling of the many schools, medical centers and research labs that are looking into the possible uses for CBD products. We continually hear anecdotal evidence from our customers about how they use our CBD products, but just like with any other claims, we can't share the reviews that go too far into detail, as it's questionably legal. We don't make health claims.
Oils and Salves from Vitality CBD
At Vitality, we offer a full line of USDA Organic CBD Oils and Full-Spectrum CBD Salves. Our CBD products are all manufactured from quality hemp that has been grown and harvested in the United States.
What does full-spectrum mean? It means that we use the entire range of plant properties rather than just single-molecule extracts. When we create full spectrum products, they include all antioxidants, nutrients, plant compounds, cannabinoids and terpenes, instead of just using parts of the plants.
Many users and researchers feel that full spectrum CBD oils are superior to CBD Isolates, another name for single-molecule extracts. We explain it like this, If you take all the other ingredients out of a chef salad, it's no longer a salad, it's just lettuce. You need all the ingredients for the salad to be more than a wedge of iceberg sitting on a plate.
All of our products are tested by a third party for purity and, be assured, our products have only a trace amount THC (the active ingredient in marijuana), less than 0.3 percent (as required by federal law).
Our products are not for use by or sale to persons under the age of 18. Our products should be used only as directed on their labels or within our more detailed dosing guide.
