Never pick a brand based on one person's opinion on social media. Especially if you feel like you are getting a sales pitch. There are many scammers and multi-level marketing salespeople that use Facebook and other social media outlets to push a particular product. Many of them will tell you whatever you want to hear to get you to buy from them. Be wary of their claims and testimonials.
One question on the minds of cannabis users is “Does CBD oil make you sleepy?” It is believed that all cannabis products have sedating effects, so won’t CBD oil just put you to sleep? CBD oil is actually less likely to make you sleepy than your average run-of-the-mill marijuana. The intoxicating, sleepy effects of cannabis come primarily from THC, which is miniscule in CBD oil.
Hemp seed oil also acts as natural remedy for inflammation and pain relief, improved sleep quality, and stress alleviation. Many consumers have reported calming effects, and a noticeable decrease in pain, all without any mind-altering side effects. Hemp oil may also be effective in treating anxiety disorders such as PTSD, social anxiety disorder, and even obsessive-compulsive disorder, because it is very high in Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. These compounds are well known for easing symptoms of anxiety. As well as being high in Omega-3 and Omega-6, hemp oil also contains significant amounts of phytocannabinoids and terpenes. These can also have a positive impact on the neurological system which directly affects anxiety and depression, a system known as the endocannabinoid system.
As mentioned above, CBD is no longer considered a Schedule I controlled substance under the Farm Act. However, under the DEA’s definition, it remains on the list. This allows for individual states to create exceptions to the status of CBD, even when cultivated from hemp plants grown legally under the act. It also maintains illegal status for any CBD sourced from plants produced in settings that are not consistent with that Act, or by an unlicensed grower. It is expected that more clarification on the status of CBD will come early this year (2019).
