Here are some common misconceptions about CBD and a few credible tips on how to access whole plant healing and its benefits.
Why the CBD Craze?
Cannabidiol (CBD), found abundant in industrial hemp, has demonstrated preliminary efficacy for a wide range of physical and mental health care problems. CBD has attracted significant research interest due to its anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidative, and anti-necrotic protective effects. Its favorable safety and tolerability profile make CBD a promising therapeutic candidate for chronic pain, epilepsy, insomnia, mood and anxiety disorders, multiple sclerosis, migraine headaches, autoimmune diseases, and more.
Hundreds of research trials are currently being conducted in an ongoing effort to fully understand CBD and other phytocannabinoids. With very promising results found in animal and human studies, only time will tell when research will reveal CBD’s full potential, and what I believe will be one of Mother Nature’s most prized gifts to all living things.
Is CBD safe?
At its November 2017 meeting, the World Health Organization Expert Committee on Drug Dependence concluded that, in its pure state, CBD does not appear to have abuse potential or cause harm.
Are all CBD products safe?
No, Hemp-derived CBD products currently do not require microbial, pesticide, and heavy metal contamination testing. Also, too many companies are mislabeling their products and putting consumers in harm’s way. Thus, I highly recommend that you purchase only premium CBD products and those with third-party testing verification from ISO accredited labs.
Why buy Full Spectrum Hemp Extract Oil (with CBD) rather than CBD Oil (CBD in its purest form)?
A thorough meta-analysis research paper published in 2018 observed that CBD along with many other phytocannabinoids (CBG, CBC, CBN, CBDV), various terpenes and other healing phytocompounds found in hemp, works best when taken together in the form of Full Spectrum Hemp Extract Oil (FSHEO). In my clinical experience, FSHEO is much more effective than CBD Oil at the same CBD dose.
Why choose Hemp&Heroes’ Full Spectrum Hemp Extract Oil?
I believe FSHEO is a wonderful natural alternative or adjunct therapy for many ailments. Based on third-party phytocannabinoids and terpenes analysis, we have one of the most potent products in today’s market. My goal is to create premium, efficacious, and affordable whole plant products (with our proprietary hemp extract and refined hemp seed oil), set high standards in the industry, educate novice consumers, and be a resource for credible information, which is vital in this very unregulated industry.
