What is CBD Oil?

The wellness world has seen all sorts of trends, from the celery juice diet to the raw food craze.. Some trends land, while others have their 15 seconds of fame before falling off the face of the earth. You’ve no doubt seen numerous cannabidiol or CBD products filling the shelves. Back in 2016, Forbes reported that the cannabis market could grow 700% by 2020. At that time, they predicted that the CBD industry would reach a whopping $2.2 billion.

The Evidence for Its Health Benefits

While many people use CBD oil successfully for pain management or anxiety, we need more scientific research. Only then can we determine whether it’s completely safe and effective. One report found that there was substantial evidence to suggest that CBD could be an effective treatment for adults with chronic pain. A separate study supported these results and found that using CBD can reduce pain and inflammation.

Too Much Marketing Noise

One of the main problems with CBD oil is that there is a wealth of marketing materials about it. These include blogs, videos, and products that claim CBD can cure whatever problem you have. But there is a limited amount of research that fully supports these claims. Although the research surrounding CBD is shaping up to be a potentially promising and versatile treatment, is there really such a thing as a miracle cure for all ailments?

Is It Safe and Effective?

CBD oil is generally well tolerated by most adults. However, the research in this area still needs more attention. Every person is different, and some people can experience CBD oil side effects such as nausea, changes in appetite, and fatigue. It’s also known to interact with some medications.
