    What Is CBD Oil?

    After hearing about it from just about everyone — you’re probably wondering what CBD Oil actually is. CBD, also known as cannabidiol, is one of about a hundred + known compounds called cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. Even though the plant has low levels of THC, it is not psychoactive.

    There is research from around the world showing the endless medicinal properties of CBD. It is known to help adults, seniors, children, and even pets with anxiety, poor sleep patterns, pain, ADHD, inflammation, seizures, PTSD, mood regulation, cardiovascular functions, and so much more. It is a bit of a shock at first hearing that parents are giving this to their children, but it works so well for many kids with school anxiety and other related issues.

    CBD is becoming so popular across America that even trendy New Yorkers are infusing it into their cocktails at places like The Standard. Sweets by Chloe. has even made a CBD-infused vegan brownie on their menu. Although this is not the type of hype that it is meant for, it has become more of mainstream and fun product. For others though, it serves as a serious medicinal product. For example, Patricia Drumgoole, Hoboken native who has had an incredible 25-year career in education and is a licensed social worker shares her story about CBD oil,

    “So you ask if CBD has helped me.  At the risk of sounding dramatic, I say CBD has become a lifeline.  Within 2 nights of starting my CBD regimen, I was sleeping solidly.  I woke up feeling recovered and rested.  Within 4 months I was no longer taking my prescribed anti-anxiety medication.  The brain fog has disappeared and the unexpected bonus is I haven’t had a hot flash or menstrual cramps in months”

    We also reached out to Alex Rosenbaum, the Owner + Operator of RosebudCBD. It wasn’t a joke about how this product can be used for many animals just like it is used for humans! She shared with us with CBD oil and how it helps her + her two dogs. Rosenbaum says,

    “My two dogs have been using it daily since January and we have seen tremendous improvements in social and stranger anxiety in one and pain management in our other pup who has degenerative disc disease”

    How Does CBD Work In Your Body?

    The endocannabinoid was discovered in the body about 30 years ago. This is responsible for homeostasis, which is the body’s ability to maintain itself and bring balance to your physiological systems. Your CBD receptors are waiting to be fed, and when they are with this product, the system self-regulates and corrects your body.

    What You Should Know Before Purchasing

    Here are a few things that you should know before buying CBD oil from just anywhere, according to Patricia Drumgoole, 

    • Buy from a company that readily and easily shows its lab test results from independent laboratories
    • Look for how much CBD you get per serving not how much is in the entire bottle
    • The label should state CBD in milligrams, not percents, per serving
    • CBD should be CO2 extracted, which seems to be the purest method for CBD extraction
    • Look for CBD that comes from hemp grown in Europe; hemp grown in the US is currently the only one legal to sell in that state and can not cross state lines
    • CBD products should only be combined with all natural ingredients; be careful of products with sugar and ethanol

    • CBD oil is normally separated from the pitch organs on cannabis (weed) buds and blooms. It can likewise be removed from hemp, which is a modern, sinewy type of cannabis that has little buds and a tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the grouping of 0.3% or less. From a long time, I had a hair loss problem and I search for this many websites and treatments and I found CBD oil and these CBD products helped me a lot. And from my point of view, CBD is quite good and very useful in today’s time.
