CBD oil continues to rise in popularity, with more people and companies looking to it to solve some of their problems and add buzz to a product label. If you've heard about a CBD oil product that you're interested in trying or just think that it might be a good solution to your chronic pain, anxiety, or something else entirely, doing your research about what your options are, what your state allows, and the company and its practices is important. But beyond pain or anxiety, there might actually be some brilliant uses for CBD oil that you never would have guessed that you may want to know more about. Even if findings aren't currently definitive or if you're not able to use CBD oil in products in your state right now, it might be something that has promise in the future.
CBD oil, yes, comes from a cannabis plant, but it's not the compound in the plant that gets you high — that's THC, as Mindbodygreen noted. There are also additional compounds beyond those two (CBD and THC) that make up the plant. Prevention reported that some states have statues specifically relating to CBD, making them legal in those states, while others have not taken any action to make any CBD product legal for any use. If you live in a state that has OK-ed CBD and allows it to be used more generally, you might be interested in some of the different applications for it that could actually work.
