CBD Oil – Effective or Hype?

In recent times I heard again and again about CBD oil and its healing effect. But what is it and what does CBD oil consist of?

I myself did not read too much about it yet, but a good friend of mine, who had a chronic intestinal problem mentioned the oil to me. He said his problems had disappeared after a long odyssey with medication. As a result, I found out on the Internet what CBD Oil exactly is. I haven’t tried the oil yet because I’m in good health. But I’m not getting any younger and in the event that at some point I’m not doing so well, I’d better get informed in advance!

The abbreviation CBD stands for Cannabidiol. This is a cannabinoid which is extracted from the female hemp. It is not psychoactive, is said to have anti-inflammatory and relaxing effects.

In Germany CBD oil is sold as a dietary supplement. It does not require a prescription, as it is not a medicine. Since it is not sold as a medicine, no medical effects may be advertised.

But if one studies a little literature and makes oneself smart, CBD oil seems to be worth a try. Especially in chronic diseases interesting effects are attested. I would not recommend CBD oil as a panacea, but anyone who has tried CBD oil should give it a chance. I am not a friend of chemical based medicine and it has been years since I took antibiotics. So I tend towards natural remedies, like CBD, rather than pharmaceutical products, which usually have many side effects.

If you want to try CBD, there are a few things you should consider.

What is important is the high quality of the oil. If you want to be on the safe side, you should only buy CBD oil which was produced in Germany. Thanks to the high production standards there, contamination by harmful chemicals can be virtually ruled out.

A good manufacturer of CBD oil offers detailed information about his products on his website and above all the possibility that you can contact him to clarify and answer specific questions.

CBD oil is available in different processing stages, which can be optimized in their effect by the different processes. Ask the respective manufacturer which product best meets your requirements.

In summary, I would like to say the following:

  • Although CBD oil is not a medical product, its positive properties have been proven in many studies.
  • Pay attention to high quality (organic, certified products) from Germany when purchasing.
