What is CBD Oil?

I found out about CBD oil from a friend. The friend mentioned that they bought CBD oil online and that it was supposed to be administered sublingually (under the tongue) through a few drops. They didn't like the taste or the way it made them feel. I was immediately on alert, as I thought that maybe CBD oil was perhaps not permitted, as it was a derivative of hemp. I did a bit more analysis and found out that CBD oil, while a legal derivative known as hemp, has scientific, therapeutic evidence

The friend was taking it for depression, but I was surprised to know that CBD oil had many other scientific benefits as well. I chose to only use peer-reviewed, scientific journals as the basis of any CBD health claim. I also ensured that the scientific journals and peer-reviewed articles were recent, at least within the last five to ten years.

What is CBD oil?

CBD oil is usually known as 'hemp.' CBD is the shortened version of the word 'Cannabidiol.' It is one of the eighty-five chemical components that are commonly referred to as cannabinoids, which are located within the plant itself. Cannabidiol is abundantly found in hemp, being the second highest chemical component found in hemp.

CBD oil helps protect against this kind of toxicity. It also prevents associated seizures related to liver inflammation. (Vilela, 2015) CBD oil has also lessened the duration of the drug in mice. In the animals laced with certain drugs, it was shown that the substance increased glutamate release, while CBD oil extract has quite the opposite effect. Glutamate is a powerful neurotransmitter that is released by the brain's nerve cells.
