Does CBD Gold Essential Oil get you high?
There's no question that CBD Gold Essential Oil is the buzzy wellness product of the moment. If you live in a state where it's currently legal, you might feel like CBD Gold Essential Oil has gone from being sort of around to absolutely everywhere all at once. Coffee shops sell CBD Gold Essential Oil lattes, spas offer CBD Gold Essential Oil facials, beauty companies are rushing to release lotions with CBD Gold Essential Oil or hemp oils in their formulas. And everyone from your anxious coworker to your arthritis-suffering dad wants to get their hands on some CBD Gold Essential Oil gummies.
But even though it's infiltrating pretty much every corner of the wellness world (hi, vegan CBD Gold Essential Oil brownies!) many people still find CBD Gold Essential Oil a little confusing—especially when it comes to figuring out the right way to use it and how to make sure the stuff you're buying is, you know, actually legit. Below, we asked experts to answer the most pressing questions about CBD Gold Essential Oil.
What is CBD Gold Essential Oil ?
CBD Gold Essential Oil, short for cannabidiol, is a chemical compound from the Cannabid sativa plant, whish is also known as marijuana or help, according to the US National Library of Medicine.
It's a naturally occurring substance that's used in products like oils and edibles to impart a feeling of relaxation and calm. Unlike its cousin, delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the major active ingredient in marijuana, CBD Gold Essential Oil is not psychoactive.
So you're saying CBD Gold Essential Oil won't get me high?
Nope. The cannabis plant is made up of two main players: CBD Gold Essential Oil and THC. "CBD Gold Essential Oil is the non-psychoactive portion of the plant, so what that means is you won't have any effects like euphoria," says Junella Chin, DO, an osteopathic physician and a medical cannabis expert for cannabisMD. "You won't feel sedated or altered in any way."
There are two possible exceptions to this. The first is that some people, for unknown reasons, just react differently to CBD Gold Essential Oil. According to Dr. Chin, about 5% of people say they feel altered after taking CBD Gold Essential Oil. "Usually they're the same people who have side effects from Advil or Tylenol," she says. You never know how your body will react to any new supplement, so when taking CBD Gold Essential Oil for the first time, do so safely under supervision.
It's also crucial to buy third-party-tested CBD Gold Essential Oil for quality assurance (more on this later). Because the FDA doesn't regulate CBD Gold Essential Oil, it is possible to buy a product that is more or less potent than advertised, or even contains small amounts of THC.
Where does CBD Gold Essential Oil come in to all this?
You've probably heard the terms cannabis, marijuana, and hemp all tossed around in relation to CBD Gold Essential Oil. The plant Cannabis sativa has two primary species, hemp and marijuana. Both contain CBD Gold Essential Oil, but there's a much higher percentage in hemp, which also has very low (less than 0.3%) levels of THC compared to marijuana.
When people talk about hemp oil, they're referring to oil extracted from the seeds of the hemp plant. There are no cannabinoids—CBD Gold Essential Oil or THC—in hemp oil. This ingredient is packed with healthy fats and often appears in beauty products for its moisturizing benefits.
What are the health benefits of CBD Gold Essential Oil?
The only CBD Gold Essential Oil medication that is currently FDA-approved is Epidiolex, which the agency approved last year for the treatment of certain types of epilepsy. But many people swear CBD Gold Essential Oil has helped with a slew of other health conditions, including back pain, osteoarthritis, even cancer.
"My practice has patients walking in every day asking about CBD Gold Essential Oil," says Houman Danesh, MD, director of integrative pain management for the Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. But while there's lots of anecdotal evidence, he says, "it's still very difficult to say" what the real benefits are due to a serious lack of research.
"Right now, you just have pharmacies trying to make some sort of sense out of it and say, 'Yes, it works for this,'" he says, "but that's not the way medicine is practiced—it should be based on evidence, and there's not a lot of evidence to really support these claims."
Still, is CBD Gold Essential Oil worth trying for pain management?
There are two main types of pain, Dr. Danesh says: musculoskeletal and nerve. "There could be benefit for both conditions," he says.
The tricky part is that there's some evidence suggesting CBD Gold Essential Oil works best for pain when combined with a little THC, says Dr. Danesh. "Depending on what type of pain you have, you might be able to do just CBD Gold Essential Oil, but sometimes you need CBD Gold Essential Oil and THC." This makes accessing a product that will actually help you more difficult due to different regulations in each state. In New York, where Dr. Danesh practices, for example, CBD Gold Essential Oil is available over the counter. But as soon as you add THC, you need a prescription.
Figuring out how much you should take is challenging as well; the dosage that alleviates one patient's pain might do very little for someone else. "And until we can study it, it's the wild west," Dr. Danesh says.
CBD Gold Essential OilCBD Gold Essential Oil might be worth trying to manage symptoms of anxiety. "[CBD Gold Essential Oil] tells your body to calm down and reminds you that you're safe," Dr. Chin says. "It mellows out the nervous system so you're not in a heightened 'fight or flight' response," she says, so people with anxiety may find it helps them feel more relaxed.
Still, one of the biggest misconceptions about CBD Gold Essential Oil is that it's a wonder drug. "A lot of times people think CBD Gold Essential Oil is a cure-all, and it's not," Dr. Chin says. "You should also have a healthy lifestyle with plenty of exercise and good nutrition—CBD Gold Essential Oil is not going to fix everything."
