What are the benefits of Hemp Oil Extract/CBD?

Hemp Oil Extract activates the body’s own inner cannabinoids or endocannabinoids by preventing their breakdown so they last longer at the receptor site, making more strikes and thus extending their effects. You can read more about this here.

Hemp oil extract is becoming increasingly popular as people discover its many scientifically proven benefits, including improved exercise performance and recovery, balancing the immune system, and relieving discomfort, inflammation, stress, worry, PMS, blood sugar imbalances, digestive issues, or low immunity.

It has become a go-to remedy in my integrative/holistic psychiatric practice especially in one of my areas of specialty – helping individuals recover from the use of substances of abuse as well as taper off psychiatric medications, easing and shortening the transition by enhancing much-needed neurotransmitters, such as dopamine for focus, GABA for calming, and serotonin for mood maintenance.

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 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!

Why Such Widespread Effects?

I have been calling my 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.

Hemp oil extract supports the endocannabinoid system, which acts as a master balancer and messenger to cells and systems throughout the body. I see hemp oil extract as an important addition to the toolbox of integrative or functional medicine practitioners, one that ties systems together for maximum benefits throughout the body and brain. You can take it for joint issues, for example, and you notice that your occasional headaches and PMS get better. Or take it for your gut issues, and surprise, your chronic neck pain is relieved. You get the picture!
