What Are The Health Benefits of CBD Oil?

You’ve heard the buzz, and you think you might be ready to give CBD Oil a try. Your friends say it’s excellent and they seem more relaxed since taking it. Your Grandma says her joints feel better. So, what are the health benefits of CBD oil?

Benefits

Medical studies suggest that CBD has a multitude of health benefits for various conditions.  CBD works by interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), the most significant neurotransmitter system in the body.  And people taking CBD oil are touting the benefits! If you are confused, you are not alone. While research is being done, health benefit claims continue to increase.  And though CBD is not an approved drug by the Food and Drug Administration, the FDA did approve a drug, Epidiolex, made from purified CBD oil for the treatment of two forms of Epilepsy. 

When weighing the benefits, keep in mind that not all CBD is created equal.  CBD products from Opulent Organics contain 0.0% THC (won’t make you high), they are sustainably sourced and are made from natural ingredients, they are rich in cannabinoids, are rigorously tested, and are pharmacist approved. We believe in our products and the benefits they can offer. 

Some reported health benefits of CBD oil include:

1.  Alleviates Discomfort and Achiness

Some CBD users report that joint discomfort has been reduced.  Many believe that CBD offers a safe, all-natural alternative to prescription medications or over the counter pills.  While research continues, so do user testimonials, prompting many with stiffness and discomfort to take a closer look at CBD.  You can try our CBD Relief Softgels for muscle and joint discomfort relief formulated with our superior blend of hemp extract and curcumin.  Also available in a topical salve for fast-acting, spot relief.

2.  May Relieve Occasional Anxiousness or Emotional Distress

For some people, CBD can offer an alternative to pharmaceuticals with known side effects, and in some instances, are highly addictive.  Many claim they feel calmer and more at ease after taking CBD products, leading some to report they experience additional health benefits of CBD oil, such as lower blood pressure.  For well-rounded support in body and mind, we recommend starting with Balance, which is available in drops, softgels, and gummies. The Balance product line is designed for daily use to help promote inner harmony and mental sharpness.

3.  Better Rest

What are the health benefits of CBD oil when it comes to sleep?  According to Harvard Health Publishing, studies suggest that CBD may help with both falling asleep and staying asleep.  Our CBD Sleep Softgels are a combination of CBD and melatonin to achieve deeper sleep naturally and to wake up feeling refreshed, instead of with the “sleep hangover” you might get with some sleep prescriptions. 

4.  Clearer Complexion

Many users have noticed a marked improvement in their skin after taking CBD for a short period.  There have been a lot of claims about the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD, so clearer skin could quite possibly be another health benefit of CBD oil

5.  Settles Your Stomach

Those users who have suffered from vomiting or nausea, particularly after medical treatments, have reported improvement.  The settling effect may be from feeling relaxed and the reduction of occasional anxiousness.  

6.  Lessens Daily Fatigue

If daily fatigue is an issue for you, taking CBD oil may be able to help.  We have proudly crafted a unique drink mix, CBD Energy + Focus Packets, that can be taken to help with energy and restoration.  Simply add water to the mix, and you’ve got clean, focused energy to get you through the day. This formulation is carefully crafted to give you a boost without the jitters or crash effects that energy drinks are known to cause.

How to Use CBD

CBD comes in a variety of forms, and it can be overwhelming to figure out which is right for you.  Our products can be administered by Drops, Softgels, Topical Salves, Gummies, and Energy Drinks. They are easy to use, all-natural, and proudly made in the USA.  We’ve covered some of the health benefits of CBD oil above, so let’s talk about the different ways to use CBD.

Drops

Take the drops sublingually (under the tongue) to allow the CBD to absorb directly into the blood vessels. This allows the CBD to enter the bloodstream for more fast-acting results.  With our CBD Balance Drops, you can choose from three flavor options: unflavored, mint, and lemon.  You can also choose the strength of the tincture to contain either 500 mg or 1000 mg of CBD-rich hemp extract. 

Softgels

Take one to four softgels daily with food.  Our softgels are easy to take and make it a convenient choice for you to add the health benefits of CBD oil into your life.  Balance, Relief, and Sleep all come in softgel form.  Our CBD softgels contain the same pure active ingredient as our tinctures.  We use broad-spectrum hemp extract, which helps maintain balance in everything from sleep to mood, and coconut-derived MCT oil as a carrier oil that helps your body absorb CBD.

Gummies

Take one to two gummies as needed.  CBD Gummies are a popular choice because they taste fantastic!  They can offer wonderful health benefits while adding some flavor and fun to the process.  Our gluten-free gummies are made with our premium CBD extract and contain numerous phytocannabinoids, terpenes, and other natural CBD compounds.  Each gummy contains 10 mg of CBD extract and they’re made with all-natural coloring and flavoring.

Salve

Apply a small amount and rub it into the skin.  The CBD Relief Salve alleviates discomfort and soothes the affected area with the addition of lavender and eucalyptus oils, while the beeswax offers calming relief and moisturizing benefits. Apply as much as needed anywhere on the skin for localized relief.

Powder

Our berry flavored CBD Energy + Focus is a fan favorite that comes in bulk tubs and individual packets.  Add to water and stir with a spoon to mix thoroughly. Blending is not required.  The drink mix combines the energizing effects of caffeine with CBD, vitamins, amino acids, and other natural ingredients without the jittery effects that you can get with some energy drinks.

Not All CBD Products Are Created Equal

The CBD industry has faced challenges during its rapid growth.  One of the bi-products of this growth has been inferior products or unethical companies.  As a new or frequent user of CBD products, you will want to do your research when choosing a product or company.  Before purchasing, ask the following:

  • Is your company focused on the health and well-being of your customers?
  • Are you familiar with your farmers, production team, and researchers?
  • Do you have a product guarantee or warranty?
  • How are your products tested?
  • Do you have customer testimonials?

If the company cannot, or will not, answer any of these questions, shop somewhere else.  Your health and well-being are of the utmost importance to the Opulent team. Our co-founder and chief product officer, a doctor of pharmacy, thoroughly examines every ingredient in every product before it’s ever available for purchase.  We are confident that our products will exceed expectations, but if, for any reason, you need to initiate a return, we promise a risk-free money-back guarantee for a full 60 days after purchase.  Our website is full of testimonials, and you can learn more about our involvement by reading all about us.  Still, have questions?   Contact us.  We will be happy to help.
