This organic remedy is being researched and becoming popular in treating day to day conditions like pain, anxiety, mood issues and more. Therefore, today we decided to let you know about some yummy CBD Oil smoothie recipes that you can make during spring and summer season.
Is CBD Really Beneficial?
I know you must be wondering whether CBD actually helps or it has just been unnecessarily hyped. Allow me to clear this for you.
CBD or Cannabidiol is one of the most common cannabinoids which is found in large quantities in the Hemp plant. Unlike other common and highly talked about cannabinoid THC (the high-inducing cannabinoid), CBD is completely non-psychoactive which means it will not make you high at all. This is due to the reason that this cannabinoid is extracted from the hemp plant and hemp contains 0.03% of THC which is not enough to get you high. On the contrary, THC is found in large quantities in the Marijuana plant and is responsible for making one high.
There have been a lot of studies while some are still being done on the therapeutic and medicinal applications of Cannabidiol. Based on these studies CBD can be effectively used to treat a number of conditions. These include:
- Acute and Chronic Pain
- Anxiety and Depression
- Sleep Issues
- Epileptic Seizures
- Nausea and Vomiting
- Cardiovascular diseases
- Brain-Related disorders
- Bacterial Infections
- Bone Related Problems
- Skin Problems such as Acne, Psoriasis, Eczema and more.
So now you know how CBD can be beneficial in relieving a variety of health issues and this is not a misconception, let us move to our soothing CBD Oil smoothie recipes.
