Hey, what’s up, everybody? It’s Buddica Bill from Buddicalife.com, coming to you from my rehearsal studio behind my home. It’s just kind of a quiet place when there’s no music playing so, hopefully not too distracted by the albums on the walls and stuff like that, you know, I like it, its pretty cool.
Where Does CBD Come From?
So, today, we are going to talk about CBD oil, it’s uses, what it is, what it can do for you, different delivery types and things like that. So, we can just get into CBD oil and what it is. CBD is Cannabidiol, it can be taken from the cannabis plant either hemp or marijuana which aren’t really the technical names for the two plants but we would just call it hemp and marijuana as everyone calls it. So, its taken from the hemp plant, it can be THC free.
Can CBD Oil Get You High?
It’s not going to get you high or anything like that .03 THC is like the limit to when it’s considered THC free which is pretty low. So, it’s extracted from the cannabis plant either hemp or marijuana, like I was saying, and then it’s usually put in some type of oil; vegetable oil, grape seed oil, different types of carrier oils that it can be put in there. It comes in different strengths so, you can get the oil that’s, you know, usually the one I see typically is like 250mg, 500, 750. You know there are higher ones too and that’s the concentration of CBD oil that is in the container.
So, each dosage serving size will be, it’s just like kind of like food so, maybe I would give you some examples, I’ll to show you… I’m going to flip this camera around and pull out… Let me see what we have here. So like this one here, this is charlotte’s web and this is, I believe, let me look on the box, it might be easier to read it, this is… So, this one as you can see, it might come out backwards but this is an olive oil, I’ve had other ones that are in grape seed oil. I actually kind of like the grapeseed oil. I like olive oil a little so it may be a kind of strong flavour to it. I don’t know of the actual serving size on this. So, this charlotte’s web per 1ml which is approximately… so, it comes with a dropper inside. Its 23mg so this is on the weaker side but it is good and the extraction method is CO2 extract. It’s one of the methods used.
CBD Oil Benefits
So, people want to know like CBD oil, how does it works and what are the benefits so we would get to some of the benefits of it all but most people start with maybe like for pain.
You hear it can be used for pain and things like that. It can be a good pain reliever. It’s a good anti-inflammatory so; it can help with inflammation and things like that. Also, it can have like a calming effect. So, people do use CBD oil for anxiety and depression. Some people use it if they are having troubles sleeping, they’ll take it before they go to bed.
So, the reason I started using CBD oil was for some pains I was having and it did help those pains. I don’t have anxiety or anything like that. I did notice that it does give me like a calming effect, it does have a calming effect on me but that’s not the reason I was using it. I guess for me, that’s what I would call maybe a side effect but for some people are looking for that. And I’m okay with it. Having that calmness is fine with me. There’s one great story, another reason why other people use it, I was speaking to a person, she was telling me a story about herself where she was allergic to pretty much all pain medication. So, she had pancreatic cancer, her doctor gave her 9 months to live and the only pain medication she told me she could take was dilaudid and I guess that dilaudid just kind of puts you out. She couldn’t take anything else, everything else had a bad reaction with her. So, she was taking that CBD oil just to alleviate pain. Well, the doctors think it helped her with her pancreatic cancer because they gave her 9months to live and she was telling me this was 9years ago. So, the doctor told her, “Whatever you doing, just keep doing it.” So, it was 9 years ago. She was obviously getting it illegally but it was helping her with her pain so she needed something to help with pain that wasn’t going to just make her quality of life just be sleeping all the time and so, she took it and it helped her and she still takes it to this day.
CBD Oil For Acne
Another thing that’s interesting with CBD oil is it can reduce acne so someone that has acne, you can take it. So, someone that has acne, you can take it internally or you can also use it on your skin but it kills, they say it kills some of the bacteria that’s kind of related to having acne. So, it does help with that. I haven’t used it for that but people do use it for that.
It has neural protective properties too so it can. So one of the systems the CBD oil acts on is the endocannabinoid system, I hope I’m saying it right, and that’s like one of the brain signaling system so, it’s similar to how THC works on that system. It reacts to it the same way. I’m not a scientist but… so; it can have some protective properties for like the nervous system.
To Lower Blood Pressure
There have been reports of another benefit and it helps with the circulatory system. These studies are still, I guess kind of new but I hear it has the ability to help to lower high blood pressure so there are some good benefits like some of the stuff with cancer and things like that.
To Help Fight Cancer
People report that it helps with cancer. I don’t know if it’s a cure for cancer but if it’s something that can help a person from their pain from cancer, but you just see more and more stories coming out about this and studies and it’s becoming more accepted even by the FDA and agencies like that. Well, we already kind of talked about delivery systems a little bit.
CBD Creams For Skin
There are creams that… So there are CBD creams you can use on your skin for pain.
CBD Oil Brands
You can take it internally or sublingually, so here it is, we are just going to try and open it. This is that charlotte’s web one. The dropper looks like this and you just take it in and stick it underneath your tongue and you can start with like half a dropper if you wanted to test it. You can start down there and see how your body reacts to it. It’s not like super strong type of stuff where like it’s going to make you high or anything like that but you might just want to start with a lower dosage and that way, instead of just taking more than you need to take and it would last you longer that way. So that’s one way you can take it. You can take it this way. I don’t have any CBD cream with me right now but I can show you that the other way you can take it is by vaping it. I would show you that real quick. So this is a CBD oil vape pen. So the CBD is up here and I guess this is what they call the battery. You just charge it up. You press the button right? And you see it glowing blue there and it would come out that way. This one, I’m not sure which brand this one is but this one is one of the popular brands of vape bright, True is another vape brand. To be honest with you, I don’t remember which brand this one is. I like this one, it has like a CBD oil in it which has like an essential oil in it also so, it has like a nice minty flavor to it. But it has a nice flavor to it. There’s also, for topically, these roll-ons that you can use. Companies are making CBD roll-ons now. It’s kind of like the cream but it’s just a different delivery method.
I’m trying to think of other questions you may have about CBD oil. If you have any questions, I would be happy to, you know, if you put them in the comments below, we can address other questions. Again, you can go to buddicalife.com, we have information there. We have like CBD infographic that kind of shows that shows benefits of the CBD oil, put in all one place. It’s not all the benefits but it’s kind of the popular ones. Also, we have a free CBD oil guide there where you can look at the kind of stuff we’re talking about now but it just puts you down in the guide. We can, I’ll email you that if you want that CBD oil guide. Brand-wise, I’ve used a few different brands. This is charlotte’s web, this one is pretty popular. The one I’m using right now is by a company, it’s called CTFO. They have a CBD oil line that’s pretty good. I’ve tried different ones. Colorado naturals is one I’ve used, new leaf naturals is another one. Oh, for the vape pens, there’s vape bright, I’m trying to think of the other oils but those ones are the really popular ones for CBD oil to take internally. I don’t know I heard a story about Charlotte’s Web that this was named after the creator’s daughter but I’m not sure. I think she was sick and she made this named after her but I’ll have to double check on that for you. But that’s what I heard anyway. So, thanks again for checking out this video, I’m going to make some more videos information CBD oil on any products that come out. Like right now, it just seems like there’s so many CBD oil products coming out. It’s really new so, things are staying fresh with it and there’s some cool stuff out there that are coming down the pipe like they are taking CBD oil and adding them to other stuff. They are just adding more benefits. So instead of straight CBD oil, you can get some things that have other benefits with it so it’s not pure CBD oil. Some people just want pure CBD oil but you can also get it with some of other types of oil that are added to it and are good for your health. Actually, here’s one more thing because people have this question, so you can get hemp oil right? And it may contain a little bit of CBD but the reason why CBD is so much more expensive than hemp oil is hemp oil is just straight hemp oil so, it’s pulled from the hemp plant and made into an oil but to get the CBD chemical or the ingredient, you need a lot of hemp oil to extract CBD from it. That’s why it’s kind of relatively expensive compared to hemp oil. So, that was one thing I was kind of confused about when I was first starting to use CBD oil and looking at the prices and I’m like why is this hemp oil, you can buy a gallon of hemp oil for the same price as a tiny bottle of CBD oil and you see that it’s CBD from hemp. So, the CBD is taken from the hemp. There’s also CBD from cannabis sativa which is the marijuana that would they get you high. There’s more CBD in that but it also comes with a higher THC so I just recommend using CBD from hemp. That way, you’re not looking at any THC in your system unless you are taking extreme amounts of CBD oil. I mean, it’s .03% THC. It’s the legal limit to have inside a CDB from hemp and that’s the only one that’s legal to sell in all 50states is CBD from hemp with less than .03% THC in it. So, like I said, CBD oil is legal in all 50 states but there are some municipalities and things like that you can, that aren’t allowing businesses to sell CBD oil. Cities that aren’t allowing businesses to sell CBD oil. But even though it’s still legal in all 50 states. Federally, it’s legal. There’s some laws now about marijuana and CBD. I’m in Massachusetts and up until recently; I’ve only spent a few years where it’s legal to grow marijuana on your own and use that recreationally or however you want to use it. But up until like very recently, I’m talking months, you couldn’t grow, it was illegal to grow hemp like it just doesn’t make sense right? There are so many things that are right now so confusing and don’t make sense with some of the stuff. It’s kind of a new ground for us right now right? You know, figuring how these stuffs are going to work, marijuana is being legalised in more and more states every year and it seems like and the CBD oil being legal in all 50 states. I don’t look at the recreational side of it but health benefits, marijuana still has health benefits for pain, you know, people have been using it for pain for a long time, thousands of years. It’s a pretty natural way to heal your pain, you know, to alleviate your pain than using some of these drugs that are out there now that the pharmaceutical companies have and just. There’s just bad news out there that it’s just highly addictive and can really ruin your life. So on that note, I just want to say thanks for watching the video.
