What actually is CBD oil – and what does it do?
Unless you’ve been AWOL for the past few years, you’ll be all too aware that CBD oil is all the rage in the wellbeing sphere, and its popularity is continuing to soar. But what actually is it – and what does it do?
CBD is short for cannabidiol, one component of the marijuana plant. However, while it may come from the same plant we get weed from, this isn’t a classified drug – and it doesn’t have any hallucinogenic effects, either.
In fact, CBD oil isn’t psychoactive at all. But as many people across the world have discovered over the course of thousands of years, this one element of the hemp plant can ease physical pain, help manage symptoms of anxiety, improve skin and even prepare your mind and body for a restful night’s sleep.
Terpenes – If you’ve never heard of terpenes, you’d be surprised to know they’re everywhere in your daily life. They’re responsible for the uplifting scent of citrus from fruits and the soothing aroma of lavender.
Terpenes are also antioxidants and have anti-inflammatory properties. For example, cannabinoids and terpenoids may work together to provide pain relief, reduce inflammation, and alleviate mental health issues like anxiety, and even bacterial infections, according to some studies.
THC – Is the chemical that can prove to be problematic when exploring the world of CBD. This is the compound that can result in you getting ‘high’ and will show up in drug tests which is why professionals, athletes steer clear. Even products with low amounts of THC can result in a build-up in your system over time. However, products with zero THC allow you to get all the benefits from the other compounds found in CDB but without the complications.
What’s more, new benefits are being discovered daily. It’s for this reason that Orlo strives to supply the finest quality CBD oil extracted from pure organic hemp. This way, whatever reason you wish to use CBD oil for, you can guarantee you’ll have the best experience possible
