History of CBD Oils and Its Different Uses


Short for cannabidiol, CBD oils can be traced to thousands of years back. Archaeological researches suggest cannabis sativa was among the first crops that the early man planted. 

The old six thousand BCE China used cannabis plant’s seeds as well as oils for both medicine and food. Approximately two thousand years later, still in China and other parts of the world, cannabis hemp was used in the textile industry.

Hemp was also used to make strong ropes, which were used in early Italy for sailing vessels. Hemp made from cannabis plants and their seeds were traded during this period. Apart from being a trading commodity, cannabis was also used for its medicinal properties.

An excellent example to support this is a report documented by a Portuguese physician that highlighted the medicinal properties of marijuana. Early China recorded cannabis as having antibiotic, anti-inflammatory and anti-nausea properties.

The use of cannabis went on until early 1971 when the growth of the marijuana crop for both industrial use and personal use was prohibited in the UK.

Using CBD Oils to Fight Addictions


Not so long ago researchers administered controlled dosages of CBD on cocaine addicts once every day for a whole week. The results were astounding. The experiment confirmed that CBD oils not only prevented the addicts from having withdrawal symptoms but also prevented relapse for the five following months.

The results go to show that CBD can be used to fight addiction among drug users. The best part is that the administered CBD induced medication clears out of the patient's system after only three days.

CBD Oils and Beauty Products


Since the legalization of marijuana in the UK, cannabis products have been increasing with each passing day. These include edibles as well as medications.

The beauty industry has not been left behind on this rush. CBD oils are being used in beauty products because of their unique properties. Unlike THC, Cannabidiol will not get you high. Instead, you’ll experience relief from pain, depression and anxiety.

Another thing that makes CBD oils ideal for beauty products is their anti-acne and anti-inflammatory properties. A good example this is Lord Jones, a CBD induced lotion, which is used to relieve pain.

Healthy Hearts Thanks to CBD Oils

Unfortunately, not all of us have the privilege of having healthy hearts. Some of the heart conditions being diagnosed today are as a result of genetics, the environment we are living in and our lifestyles.

Some of these Universal heart diseases include:
CBD oils can be used to treat some of these diseases, but the cure depends on the type of heart diseases in question. Many people are choosing to start using CBD infused medication since it doesn’t have any extreme side effects, which are common with alternative medication prescribed for these conditions. Successfully treated heart conditions include heart failure and hypertension.

How to Use CBD Oils

Two of the most sought-after cannabinoids in marijuana plants are Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD). CBD oils are preferred over THC because they have very little known side effect, and not forgetting the fact that they do not get the user high.

This is important because you as the user will be able to go about your daily routines even on medication. Below are some of the ways through which CBD oils can be administered into the patient’s body.

1. Topical administration

CBD can be applied to the body and come in the form of lotions or ointments. Ointments are ideal when the area being treated is localized meaning it is small and specific. Lotions and ointments are perfect for treating arthritis or reliving pain on a certain part of the body.

2.    Transdermal

Transdermal is used when CBD oils have to be administered directly into bloodstream to work. People who are not smoking marijuana mostly use the transdermal administration method.

3. Oral Administration

CBD oils can be made into edibles. A perfect example of this is using tablets infused with CBD oils, which are administered orally.

4.  CBD Vape-Oil

CBD vaping oil is cannabidiol, which has been liquefied and stored in a bottle. A vape pen is used to vaporize the oil that is then inhaled by the user. CBD vape oil has a high concentration of THC, which is what gets you high. If you want to pass a drug test, then you should consider getting CBD vape oil extracted directly from hemp marijuana crops. CBD vaping is administering CBD oils through a vaporizer. The vapor pen heats the liquid which then turns into fumes that the user inhales.

Parents looking to introduce their children to CBD oils should be aware that there two main components from marijuana plants which is CBD and THC. THC is what gets you high, and kids should not use any product with THC. However, CBD products are safe to use by kids as they will only calm them down and cure different diseases.
