Hemp-CBD oil as a supplement
People looking to natural supplements to bolster their health often turn to CBD oil. If you’ve read this blog, you know that CBD is cited as anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antidepressant, anti-anxiety and more. It is nonpsychoactive, so you don’t get high, and has few, if any, side effects. Studies show that taking CBD oil as a dietary supplement has the potential to treat conditions, including arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, Parkinson’s disease, bone health, glaucoma, MS, chronic pain, schizophrenia, PTSD, antibiotic-resistant infections, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease.
Great news, right? But, did you know that nutritionally, CBD oil is a powerhouse?

Full-spectrum CBD oil
It’s important to use full-spectrum CBD oil for a lot of reasons. I won’t go into that here, but if you’re interested, here’s more information. In brief, it’s a pure form of hemp oil that contains all the nutrients, cannabinoids and compounds available in the hemp plant that can enhance your health. Here is what CBD oil offers:
Not only is CBD oil a complete protein, it has all 22 essential fatty acids, plus the nine essential fatty acids bodies are unable to produce on their own. These essential fatty acids, omega 3 and omega 6, are crucial to so many functions. You need omega 3 to help create hormones that regulate inflammation and monitor expansion and contraction in your heart’s arteries. Omega-6 fatty acids direct brain function and normal growth and development. They also stimulate skin and hair growth, maintain bone health, regulate metabolism, and maintain your reproductive system. Plus, the omega 3 and 6 in CBD is an optimal ratio, 4:1 so you don’t get too much of one and not enough of the other. It’s all about balance.CBD oil also hosts major vitamins and minerals that support organ function, your immune system, oxygen transfer through your blood, nerve and muscle communication. The nutrients and vitamins in CBD oil comprise a really long and vital list that help manage your health if used regularly. So much of our Western diet is deficient in many of the vitamins, minerals and nutrients we need for robust health that it makes sense to supplement with this comprehensive product.
The key to using CBD oil
As I’ve often said, CBD is not a panacea for healing disease or chronic conditions. But, as a part of a healthful regimen, it offers benefits that few other supplements do. However, taking CBD isn’t one and done. You need to experiment and give it enough time to acclimate in your body so you can learn how much you need to take and how often.
Not enough studies have been done to dose CBD oil for everyone, so in some ways you’re on your own. But, as I’ve said, the side effects are few, if any, and the benefits are vast. Ready to toast to your good health with CBD oil? Cheers.
