Pure CBD oil is a natural remedy for various diseases that is being used in many parts of the world, as it is considered by many as a medicinal substance. In addition, this oil is already legal in Spain, Canada, Uruguay, Holland, Jamaica and some states of the United States.
This pure oil has an extensive list of therapeutic and preventive indications for its use.
What is pure CBD oil
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a chemical or substance that can be found in the cannabis sativa plant, recognized around the world as marijuana. It has also been possible to determine 80 other chemicals present, which are derived from it and are called cannabinoids.
On the other hand, cannabidiol in its pure form is obtained from hemp. According to a marijuana expert named Peter Grinspoon, pure CBD oil is different from other substances because it does not cause addiction.
CBD oils are 100% natural and do not contain synthetic chemicals. They should be kept away from heat and light. They should be in a cool place to maintain their original, pure state, and their potency.
Use of pure CBD oil
It is used to treat different diseases, one of which is a seizure disorder (epilepsy). However, it can also be used to achieve calming of anxiety, pain, muscle disorders as it has the ability to provide muscle relaxation, Parkinson’s disease, Crohn’s disease, and a fairly extensive list of different conditions.
It should be stressed and always kept in mind, that there is no concrete scientific evidence to approve and support the use of cannabidiol for all these conditions.
The use of this substance can include side effects, including really high blood pressure, dizziness, and in other cases dry mouth. There were also signs of liver injury in certain patients, but this is less likely to happen now as it is very rare.
Legality of Use
The passage of the Farm Bill (2018 Farm Bill) prohibited both the sale of hemp and hemp derivatives in the United States. However, this does not mean that it is illegal to use all products that are derived from hemp.
Because CBD has been studied as a new drug, this means that its use is totally legal under conditions, as the use and benefits of this oil are not fully proven. Therefore, it is legal to include it in foods and dietary supplements.
The conditions for this substance to be legal is that it should not be included in products marketed with therapeutic guarantee. It can only be used in cosmetic products with less than 0.3% THC.
How does this substance work?
Cannabidiol has antipsychotic effects. The cause of this effect has not yet been successfully determined.
However, studies have shown that cannabidiol has the ability to prevent the breakdown of a chemical in the brain that affects pain, mood and mental function in humans. By not breaking down this chemical and increasing its level in the blood, it can cause, in certain cases, a total decrease in psychotic symptoms, which are associated with different conditions, such as schizophrenia.
Cannabidiol can also block some of the psychoactive effects of THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol). In addition, cannabidiol can make pain and anxiety disappear or lessen.

Hemp (CBD) is not marijuana (THC)
Hemp and marijuana are two forms of the cannabis sativa plant. On the one hand, cultivated marijuana has high levels of THC, these levels are mainly concentrated in the flowers of the plant.
Hemp is grown for its fibre content and has almost undetectable levels of THC, however it has relatively high levels of CBD. Hemp has been cultivated for centuries for industrial and medicinal purposes, this means that hemp is not a drug and in fact contains much of all the nutrients that are indispensable to the human body, many of which the human body does not have the capacity to produce.
Thanks to the combination of different varieties of cannabis sativa, and thanks to the new development of genetics and cultivation techniques. It has been possible to produce hemp with an exaggeratedly high percentage of CBD, obtaining a pure oil rich in CBD from legal and non-psychoactive hemp, being excellent for many uses.
