What is CBD Oil & How Can it Help Me?
CBD oil has been a hot button issue in the past couple of years. Since hemp-derived CBD is legal, CBD is much easier to access and many people have tried it.
The demand for CBD products has recently skyrocketed! There has been a big increase in the need for CBD vape pen, CBD topicals and even CBD infused drinks.
There is a lot of controversy around CBD since hemp-derived CBD isn’t as highly regulated as marijuana-derived CBD. If you’re looking to try marijuana-derived CBD, you’re in the right place!
Louisiana Marijuana Card is the number one provider of medical marijuana cards in the state. We are not only here to help you with your physical health but with your health and wellness all around.
In today’s blog, we’re going to get into all the details on what CBD oil is, how it can help you and where you can get it in Louisiana!
What is CBD Oil?
Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is one of the main cannabinoids in the marijuana plant. You can think of CBD as the sister to THC. THC is the cannabinoid in marijuana that has psychoactive effects, aka the part that makes you feel “high.” CBD on the other hand, holds all the medicinal properties of THC yet has no psychoactive effects.
CBD and THC both exist in the marijuana plant as their acid form (CBDA and THCA). Both of these must be heated, or decarboxylated, in order to be activated.
Although marijuana can come in many different forms, in Louisiana there have been restrictions on the type of products you can get in the state. Up until now, only the sale of marijuana oil was permitted in the state. But just this past month, Louisiana approved raw marijuana flower to be available for sale at dispensaries starting in 2022!
So what is CBD or marijuana oil? Oil is an umbrella term that is used to describe a liquid extract. This liquid extract can be used to make a variety of products that you can purchase for your treatment at Louisiana dispensaries. You can purchase edibles, tinctures, topicals, lotions and capsules. All of these use marijuana oil to make their products and you can get these with varying amounts of THC, CBD or both!
How Can CBD Help Me?
CBD has actually been heavily researched and is known to have anti-inflammatory properties. CBD has benefits for inflammation on the nervous system. They are linked to medical conditions such as arthritis or inflammation related to the gut.
CBD is also known to help cancer patients during chemotherapy treatment. It has been shown to decrease some side effects such as nausea and chronic pain.
Not only does CBD treat chronic physical pain but it also is known to treat neuropathic pain. Many patients with medical conditions such as multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease use a mixture of CBC and THC products to treat their pain and also reduce inflammation as well.
