In the wellness world, the popularity of Cannabidiol is sky rocketing. You may be thinking, “What is all of the hype on Cannabidiol?” “Does it get you high?” “Are there legal concerns?”  “Can it help me?” Cannabidiol, or better known as CBD or hemp oil, is derived from the cannabis plant BUT it doesn’t get the user “high”. It is a totally different experience and has very unique benefits.

CBD is the second most abundant chemical next to nearly 100 other cannabinoids in hemp. A more infamously known chemical, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), is found in high levels of marijuana, which causes a “high”, while CBD does not cause this effect. THC is what causes the “hazy”, “stoned,” euphoric, sometimes mind-altering thoughts and feelings that are typically associated with marijuana use. Both hemp and CBD are federally legal, while marijuana is only legal in certain states.

There are many people who ingest or take CBD oil as a nutritional supplement who claim to feel a heightened sense of relaxation after taking their daily CBD oil serving. “A soothing calmness,” notes one reviewer.

CBD is considered an adaptogen and has a laundry list of potential health benefits backed by research. A study by the Journal of Experimental Medicine found that usage of CBD oil suppresses chronic inflammation and neuropathic pain, while a review by Neurotherapeutics found that CBD potentially supports anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, obsessive–compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder. According to a publication by the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, long term use of CBD oil could prevent Alzheimer’s Disease symptoms. Another study showed that CBD oil may help with acne by lower the amount of sebum that causes outbreaks.

CBD oil comes in many forms whether it be topical or an oral supplement depending on the individual’s need for the product. The research on this magical natural substance is both astonishing and promising and at Cambiati Wellness we’re currently carrying two products containing CBD oil!

  • Lulu’s chocolate bar with CBD- Here is what Lulu’s says about it: “We are so proud of our beloved CBD bar!  We’ve chosen to add extra Terpenes to activate & accentuate the healing powers of CBD Oil.  We specifically chose a terpene profile that supports pain relief, stress reduction, relaxation & a joyful mood.  Enjoy!

(Fun fact!  What do your brain, chocolate and cannabis all have in common?  They all naturally contain cannabinoids!  The cannabinoid in your brain is called Anandamide, also known as “the bliss chemical.”  Cacao also contains Anandamide and Anandamide Inhibitors. Simply put, when you ingest chocolate with the cannabis plant, the effects of both substances are made stronger and last longer.)

  • Hemp Oil- A dietary oral supplement with 100% hemp extract derived from the stalks and stems of the plant. The oil is flavored with natural citrus oils for a refreshing taste. According to PrimeMyBody, the Nano-Enhanced hemp oil is absorbed in the blood “in amounts three times as great at half the dose of the leading pharma brand” leading to efficient delivery and immediate results.
  • Paleo Paw CBD supplements for your pets– From treats, dog shampoo, oral droplets and massage butter, we now have a selection of CBD products for pets. Don’t just experience the healing properties of CBD for yourself, share it with your beloved pets!
