It has become a go-to remedy in my integrative/holistic psychiatric practice especially in my area of expertise – helping individuals recover from various addictions, as well as to taper off psychiatric medications. We ease and shorten the transition by using CBD to enhance much-needed neurotransmitters, such as dopamine for focus, GABA for calming, and serotonin for mood maintenance.

Why Such Widespread Effects?

Hemp oil extract/CBD is an important addition to the natural home remedy list, as well as the toolbox of integrative medicine practitioners. CBD supports the endocannabinoid system, which acts as a master balancer, connector and messenger among cells and systems throughout the body and brain. As a phytocannabinoid, CBD activates the body’s own inner cannabinoids or endocannabinoids, for example, anandamide and 2-AG, by preventing their breakdown so they last longer at the receptor site, thereby extending their effects. You can read more about this here.

It has multiple effects due to its presence throughout all systems of the body. You can take it for joint issues, for example, and you notice that your headaches or PMS get better. Or take it for your gut issues, and surprise, your chronic neck pain is relieved. You get the picture!

We have been calling our product “Hemp Oil Extract” rather than CBD since CBD or cannabidiol is only one of the over 100 cannabinoids plus terpenes and other health-giving ingredients in the hemp plant. In the full spectrum extract, they work together to produce the “full entourage effect” as nature intended.

Explaining Disease Claims:

According to the Dietary Health and Supplement Act of 1994 (DSHEA 1994) we cannot make disease claims on a supplement, only structure and function claims. Therefore, I can’t really expound in more detail on the formula’s specific health benefits. I know it’s frustrating that labels don’t say what a supplement is able to do, except that it “can restore a good mood or a sense of relaxation” versus “relieves depression or anxiety.” Or “relieves discomfort” instead of “relieves pain,” which is considered a medical term. So, we live with it. It was a fiercely hammered-out compromise, made to keep supplements separate from prescription and over-the-counter drugs. The alternative at that time was not to have the supplements available at all!

We also are required to put the following disclaimer on any stated benefit, including the ones listed above.
