In the 2010’s the public began to see what a profound effect CBD oil could have treating a variety of life threatening aliments, especially in children. A prime example of this is a young family from Missoula Montana, using CBD oil to treat their 20 month old son, Cash Hyde, who had been diagnosed with brain cancer in 2010. Hyde’s condition was worsening and his tumor inoperable. After exhausting every treatment option, including 30 rounds of intensive radiation, Ketamine, Methadone and Morphine treatments, the Hyde family had hit their limit. Nothing had worked. In an effort to give his small child some relief, his father did what was thought to be “crazy”at the time, and gave him a highly concentrated cannabis extract, not knowing what else to do. After the first treatment, Hyde’s State IV brain tumor had shrunk. Although it was considered unorthodox, Mike Hyde was applauded by medical professionals and even spoke with the press in hopes of shedding the light on how CBD oil is literally a lifesaver. Cash Hyde lived for another two and a half years, passing away after the State of Montana made a change in legislation that impaired the family from easily accessing the cannabis oil their son needed.

We have people taking several drops to the whole dropper to receive the results they are looking for. When you get the oil home experiment by taking the full dropper. The next day try half a dropper every couple hours. Our physician states you can not overdose and it has no known drug interactions so increase or decrease the amount until the optimal results are achieved. You may have to experiment a bit but we know it’s worth it.
While the other CBD oil stores have high-quality products, our choice simply came down to variety, potency and price. Whichever you choose to go for, though, know that all of the companies above have an outstanding store and offer a wide range of effective products, from CBD oils to Terps and even CBD creams. Plus, most have a 100% money back guarantee policy, which is quite nice!
Brian Peterson is a consumer advocate for users of CBD oil products and the lead administrator of the CBD Oil Users Group on Facebook. He first learned about CBD oil in 2013 from reviews of users on social media. He has immersed himself in the industry since then. This includes founding the CBDOilUsers.com website and the largest CBD oil group on Facebook. His passion is educating people about CBD oil products and the most reputable companies in the industry.
The first thing that comes to mind when we think of CBD products are the smokables such as vape products. CBD vape oil and CBD oil vape juice are very popular among patients because their effects are almost instantaneous. What’s more, they are ideal for a wide variety of issues – from pain to panic attacks. To consume them, you need a CBD vape pen and smokeable products like e-liquids.

Another very common issue is acne. During the teenage years it occurs more frequently, but adults suffer with it also. In fact, 15% of acne sufferers are adults and some suffer from it chronically. There are numerous washes, creams and pills that might help with suppressing acne symptoms, but CBD might provide beneficial relief that offers permanent treatment for this issue rather than just a temporary solution.

CBD (short for cannabidiol) is one of at least 113 chemical compounds known as cannabinoids that are found in the cannabis plant. The popularity of CBD oil products continues to increase as more consumers learn about the potential health benefits. Anxiety, depression, chronic pain, inflammation and insomnia are just a few of the conditions cited by users who are successfully using CBD oil products.
“The political implications of that scheduling, from a research perspective, are limiting,” explains Sutton. “To my knowledge, of the thousands of academic and research bodies in the United States and Canada whom would be equipped to perform agricultural or medical research on this unique species, only around 40 have actual research licenses to study the plant in a limited context.”
Full spectrum (or “whole plant”) products contain CBD as well as terpenes and other cannabinoids such as CBG, CBN and trace amounts of THC. Usually these will be in ratios that were naturally-occurring and extracted from the plant and specific strain. Terpenes and cannabinoids are occasionally added back into products as an isolated form to raise the potency of the product.
In the UK, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs treats hemp as a purely non-food crop, but with proper licensing and proof of less than 0.2% THC concentration, hemp seeds can be imported for sowing or for sale as a food or food ingredient.[20] In the U.S., imported hemp can be used legally in food products and, as of 2000, was typically sold in health food stores or through mail order.[17]
The great irony of the legal mess concerning industrial hemp is hemp products often aren’t banned in countries where cultivation is; meaning consumers in those countries are spending millions on importing products that could be made locally. Even more perplexing is situations such as in Australia, where most hemp products can be imported, but not hemp seed as food. Yet, poppy seeds can be purchased at the local supermarket.
Like with so many other natural products, no regulations have been put into place to test the potency or quality of these products. The labeling of these products is also not regulated the way they are for pharmaceutical drugs. Therefore, it is critically important to conduct research ahead of time and select the company that with provide you with the highest quality of pure CBD oil. 

In a 2011 study, scientists wanted to study the effects of CBD on people with SAD. The scientists selected 24 people with this condition who had never received treatment for SAD then divided participants into two groups. One group received 600 mg of CBD while the control group received a placebo. The scientists then asked study participants to take part in a simulated public speaking test while researchers measured blood pressure, heart rate and other measurements of physiological and psychological stress.
The other notable difference between hemp and CBD oil is the amount of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), one of the 13 components found in cannabis. Hemp oil has low levels of THC (less than 25 parts in a million) while CBD can have as much as 15% CBD. In fact, one of the considerations to make when buying either of the oils is to check the amount of THC in the product as indicated on the label.

Kope offers some of the highest quality CBD oil on the market. Consider this company the “craft brewery” of CBD. While most companies focus on distillation processes that strip the plant of multiple other “entourage effects”, Kope believes in keeping ALL of the plant’s natural compounds – creating a product you truly feel the difference with come time to ingest.

A crop for the future? With modern farming in big trouble, farmers are being paid not to cultivate their land, and food mountains are burnt in developed countries, while billions of people go hungry in developing countries. Hemp represents a lifeline crop for rural and hunger-prone areas, of particular value for its' versatility and organic nature. A famine-stricken village could clothe, house and feed themselves from one hemp field!

One study suggested that a dose of concentrated CBD oil might cause cell death in breast cancer cells. One more study involving mice dealt with this particular cancer as well. Researchers concluded that CBD might inhibit aggressive breast cancer cells from spreading.CBD oil can be used to prevent cancer from spreading. Some scientific studies show that the CBD compound can help suppress the growth of cancer cells and promote their destruction.


Hemp was used extensively by the United States during World War II to make uniforms, canvas, and rope.[143] Much of the hemp used was cultivated in Kentucky and the Midwest. During World War II, the U.S. produced a short 1942 film, Hemp for Victory, promoting hemp as a necessary crop to win the war.[142] U.S. farmers, like Joe, ‘Daddy Burt’ Burton, participated in the campaign to increase U.S. Hemp production to 36,000 acres in 1942.[144][145] This increase amounted to more than 20 times the production in 1941 before the war effort.[145]
Carol, thanks for your long and detailed post, and the links. In your paragraph where you reference various effects, you write “cannabis” several times. There are several components of “cannabis”, THC is the more psychoactive component – and current varieties have been bred/engineered to have ever increasing concentrations of this. CBD is another component, which has different and in some cases opposing effects vs. THC. Are the statements you made about effects of “cannabis”, do they center on THC, consumption/use of the whole plant, or have they broken out a purified CBD product and tested the impacts of just that component. Earnest question.

Hemp is used to make a variety of commercial and industrial products including rope, textiles, clothing, shoes, food, paper, bioplastics, insulation, and biofuel.[5] The bast fibers can be used to make textiles that are 100% hemp, but they are commonly blended with other fibers, such as flax, cotton or silk, as well as virgin and recycled polyester, to make woven fabrics for apparel and furnishings. The inner two fibers of the plant are more woody and typically have industrial applications, such as mulch, animal bedding and litter. When oxidized (often erroneously referred to as "drying"), hemp oil from the seeds becomes solid and can be used in the manufacture of oil-based paints, in creams as a moisturizing agent, for cooking, and in plastics. Hemp seeds have been used in bird feed mix as well.[14] A survey in 2003 showed that more than 95% of hemp seed sold in the European Union was used in animal and bird feed.[15]
Separation of hurd and bast fiber is known as decortication. Traditionally, hemp stalks would be water-retted first before the fibers were beaten off the inner hurd by hand, a process known as scutching. As mechanical technology evolved, separating the fiber from the core was accomplished by crushing rollers and brush rollers, or by hammer-milling, wherein a mechanical hammer mechanism beats the hemp against a screen until hurd, smaller bast fibers, and dust fall through the screen. After the Marijuana Tax Act was implemented in 1938, the technology for separating the fibers from the core remained "frozen in time". Recently, new high-speed kinematic decortication has come about, capable of separating hemp into three streams; bast fiber, hurd, and green microfiber.

Although cannabis can be used to make marijuana, CBD itself is non-psychoactive—meaning that it doesn’t get you high the way smoking or eating cannabis-related products containing THC (the plant's psychoactive compound) can. Still, there’s a lot doctors don’t know about CBD and its effects on the body, and a lot consumers should understand before trying it.
