Researchers like Blessing are legitimately excited about CBD. It shows real promise in treating previously intractable disorders like schizophrenia, and without the destructive side effects of existing drugs. Still, that doesn’t mean CBD is harmless. Research on drug interactions with CBD is in its infancy, but what is known within the medical community is that CBD can cause serious problems for people taking certain classes of drugs, namely SSRIs (a group of antidepressants including Zoloft and Prozac) and opioids.
As of July 2018, 47 states have gotten around this federal restriction by legalizing CBD for human use within their own states, according to the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. Physicians there can now recommend CBD to their patients, and consumers can often buy the compound on their own — for themselves or their pets — without any interaction with a health-care professional.
But, as Powers acknowledges, there’s even less research for those uses in animals than there is for humans. And while studies suggest CBD doesn’t pose a risk of addiction and generally causes few side effects, there are some risks, says Casara Andre, founder of Veterinary Cannabis Education & Consulting, a resource for pet owners and veterinarians.
Reap the benefits of high CBD, no THC, certified organic hemp oil. Extracted from hemp with C02, the THC level in our CBC oil is kept below the federally legal limit of 0.3% and even meets the 0.0% required in Idaho. Our CBD oil is grown organically as part of a government approved industrial hemp research project in Kentucky, is pesticide free, mold free and heavy metal free. You can find cheaper products imported from Europe, refined using harsh chemical solvents. Ours is produced in the US using the organic hemp aerials and needing no chemical refinement. We use the aerials because that is where the CBDs are produced, not in the stalk or seeds! Most other companies take their initial extraction, thin it out with hemp seed or olive oil and bottle that. Ours goes one step further to isolate and remove just the CBD molecules which are then bottled with a touch of coconut oil - no waxes, no chlorophyll. You are paying for CBD, you should get CBD! Our initial extraction yields 48-58% CBD which is then isolated to a 99.8% CBD purity content. Others initial extraction yeilds 10-14% and is often from waste hemp contaminated with heavy metals and more. Each batch is GC/MS tested to ensure purity, quality and total lack of THC.
Place the oil directly on your skin for irritation or rashes. Use it as a massage oil for pain, you simply rub it and massage the area, allowing the oil to absorb and work its magic. You can ingest this oil by placing a drop under your tongue or inside your cheek, or place a drop in your juice or water. These can be just plain or have a hint of flavoring.
