QUESTION 

Just how different are CBD Oil products from Marijuana? Marijuana gives me Anxiety. I’m interested in giving CBD Oil a try, but I don’t want to feel Anxiety from CBD Oil as well.

ANSWER
The main difference between CBD Oil and Marijuana boils down to the amount of THC. CBD Oil is typically derived from Hemp. Hemp is a close cousin of Marijuana. Hemp, by law, has less than 0.3% THC, where Marijuana, then, by default has more than 0.3% THC. 

Excess amounts of THC does cause Anxiety. To avoid the psychoactive effects of THC all together, then the safer bet is to purchase CBD Oil that’s hemp-derived because it less than 0.3% THC and you’re significantly reducing the likelihood of experiencing Anxiety.

 


QUESTION

Does CBD Oil work for Tension Headaches? 

Are there any clinical studies on the effect of CBD Oil on Tension Headaches? Have studies been done on CBD Oil for Tension Headaches? Is there evidence that CBD Oil helps to relieve Tension Headaches?

What results have you seen in the patients with Tension Headaches that you’ve treated with CBD Oil?

ANSWER
When it comes to research, there was a fairly extensive study done in Colorado on the effect of Cannabinoids, like CBD & THC, on Headaches. In this study, a significant number of patients reported tremendous relief of pain associated with their Headaches. 

Having practiced in the area of Medical Marijuana & CBD oil since 2012, specifically what I’ve seen is that high CBD marijuana product or CBD Oil affects Headaches in 3 different ways – 

  1. Reduced Frequency of Headaches. In other words, patients experience fewer number of headaches. 
  2. Reduced Duration of Headaches. High CBD marijuana product or CBD Oil help to reduce how long the Headaches last. Patient often report that their Headaches can last for several hours at time. With the high CBD marijuana product or CBD Oil however, as soon as patients feel the Headache coming on, within 20 minutes to an hour the pain is significantly reduced or eliminated all together. 
  3. Reduced Severity of Headaches. Typically, patients experience 7 to 9 out of 10 levels of pain. The high CBD marijuana product or CBD Oil helps to bring the pain down to 1 to 3 out 10 level of pain or the high CBD marijuana product or CBD Oil eliminates the pain all together. 

 


QUESTION 

Is CBD Oil only used topically?

ANSWER

Using CBD Oil topically is one option, but it’s not your only option. There are several other common ways to use CBD Oil.

Inhalation is one way to use CBD Oil. And I’m talking about vaporizing, not smoking. 

Ingestion is another way to use CBD Oil. It entails swallowing an edible infused with CBD Oil, which is then digested in the gastrointestinal tract. 

There’s also the sublingual way to use CBD Oil. It’s just using CBD Oil under the tongue. 

 

QUESTION 

Will CBD show up on drug test? My job can randomly drug test? 

ANSWER

Most usually a drug tests for a breakdown product of THC. When you use a product that has very small amounts of THC, you’re reducing, not eliminating the likelihood of THC being detected.
