Helpful info on a new component of holistic wellbeing
While Passer Restorative Therapies does not currently offer CBD products, we support the use of CBD oil as part of a holistic approach to overall wellness. Because of this stance, we wanted to help our patients better understand the benefits of incorporating CBD oil into ones overall wellness routine.
What is CBD?
CBD is one of the many compounds, or cannabinoids, found in the cannabis plant. When derived from hemp as concentrated oil, CBD has been known to have many beneficial therapeutic uses.
What are the benefits of CBD oil?
Researches continue to discover new beneficial uses for CBD each day. CBD oil is known to:
- Work as a natural pain reliever and anti-inflammatory agent
- Treat the symptoms of epilepsy and some neurological disorders
- Provide relief from a variety of anxiety conditions, including PTSD, generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder and OCD
Additional research has shown that CBD could possibly be used as a treatment for cancer, Type 1 Diabetes, acne and much more.
Is CBD the same thing as marijuana?
No. CBD is one of two main components of marijuana. The other is THC. While THC is responsible for the “high” experienced when a person smokes or ingests marijuana, CBD is a component that is not psychoactive. While it can benefit your body, it does not change your state of mind.
