Hemp & CBD Oil: Everything You Need to Know

You've been hearing about hemp oil. Here's your chance to get all your questions answered. Hemp oil is extracted from the hemp plant, a member of the cannabis genus, but without the psychoactive substance THC that produces a "high." Hemp oil is also known as cannabidiol, or CBD for short. Research is finding that CBD may be effective in treating conditions such as chronic pain, PTSD, and anxiety. Cannabidiol may also have benefits as a neuroprotectant for persons with such conditions as autism and Parkinson's. Just as your body has a digestive system, a nervous system, and a circulatory system, it also has an endocannabinoid system. The discovery of the endocannabinoid system is still relatively new, and there is much yet to discover as to the role it plays in health and wellness. Should you be taking CDB Oil? If so, how much? With so many hemp oil products crowding the market, how can you be sure you are getting a quality product? What are the best delivery systems? What has research learned about the benefits of CBD Oil, and what new breakthroughs are on the horizon? Mother Earth Foods welcomes Dr. Pritesh Kumar, Cannabinoid Research Scientist and Pharmacologist / Lab Manager for the University of Louisville, Kentucky for an eye-opening evening of discussion on this controversial and exciting new frontier in health and medicine.
