It is found in the seeds, plant or flowers of cannabis, hemp and marijuana plants and the oil is extracted in a variety of ways. CBD can be taken in various forms, with CBD Oil being one of the more popular choices amongst consumers.

It is said thetetrahydrocannabinol(THC – responsible for the psychological effects of marijuana) levels in CBD Oil are lower than that of marijuana that is grown purely for recreational use, so the possibility of getting high whilst taking it are practically zero to non-existent. 

CBD Oil can be helpful in treating and lessening the effects of certain ailments, but you will need to ascertain whether it is right for you and what condition you’re wishing to treat. Listed below are some of the more common health conditions, along with some surprising perks, that are said to benefit from the use of CBD Oil.

1) Anxiety:
Quite possibly one of the most common and crippling mental health conditions in society today, anxiety (in any form) is nothing to scoff at, nor is it easy to treat. Just when you think you are on top of it, it comes back at you with a vengeance. 

Treatments for anxiety vary depending on the severity but CBD Oil is said to be helpful, especially for those who suffer from social anxiety. 

Studies1 have shown that people who suffer social anxiety who were given CBD reported feeling less anxious when simulating talking in public than they normally would. 

Anyone who has suffered this terrible condition would gladly welcome this kind of relief. Here’s hoping this is just the start of what this oil may be able to do for this affliction.

2) Inflammation and Pain:
Chronic pain can affect one's quality of life in a variety of ways. A good nights sleep, living pain-free with no inflammation and just being able to relax can be a distant memory to sufferers. 

CBD Oil is said to help where painkillers and anti-inflammatory’s can’t, and some people who suffer from chronic pain swear by it. It is said to be pain relieving, an anti-inflammatory and helps you sleep as it can have a soothing effect on your nerves. 

3) Rheumatoid Arthritis:
This debilitating condition can hit people from all walks of life at any age, and the effects can be devastating. The condition causes the body’s immune system to attack its own tissue, and it can affect joint linings resulting in painful swelling. 

It’s claimed CBD Oil helps to reduce pain and swelling and it is thought it can help to slow down the progress of the condition. The response from people who have used CBD Oil to treat their condition has been encouraging.

4) Anti-Oxidant:
Traditional vitamins such as Vitamin C and E are praised for their antioxidant benefits, but claims are CBD Oil is even better. With most of us looking to alternative therapies to help us look, feel and live better this has to be an added bonus of using the oil. 

5) Seizures and Epilepsy

A thorough Google read of real life stories from sufferers with favorableCBD Oil stories is hard to ignore, with the overwhelming response from a majority of users is that it has given them a better quality of life, and in some cases it has helped lessen the severity and regularity of seizures.
