CBD Q & A

What is CBD?

CBD is one of the known active compounds found in the cannabis family of plants, which includes hemp and marijuana. The other well-known active compound is delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Both CBD and THC are cannabinoids.

Your body produces cannabinoids, which are used by the endocannabinoid system (ECS). While researchers have only just started to understand the role ECS plays in your health, it’s believed to help maintain homeostasis in your body and assist in the regulation of mood, pain, appetite, immune health, sleep, and stress. The CBD and THC in cannabis plants may mimic the actions of your natural cannabinoids.

How is CBD different from marijuana?

CBD is a compound found in both the marijuana and hemp plant. CBD offers the health benefits associated with medical marijuana but doesn’t cause the psychoactive effects that THC does. Additionally, CBD can be cultivated from the hemp plant. 

You don’t need a medical marijuana registry identification (ID) card when using hemp-produced CBD. 

Am I a good candidate for CBD?

The experienced team at An oz. of Wellness Healthcare determines if you’re a good candidate for CBD during a consultation. CBD may be beneficial if you’re suffering from:

  • Anxiety
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Addiction
  • Epilepsy
  • Chronic pain
  • Arthritis

There’s also preliminary evidence that CBD may help alleviate the side effects caused by cancer treatment.

What can I expect during a consultation?

The experienced team at An oz. of Wellness Healthcare offers comprehensive, stress-free, professional consultations when you come in looking for alternative treatments for the management of your health issue. During your consultation, the team reviews your symptoms and medical history and conducts a physical exam to determine if you would benefit from CBD.

How do I get CBD?

CBD made from hemp is legal on the federal level. An oz. of Wellness Healthcare sells medical-grade, over-the-counter, full-spectrum CBD oil made from hemp and can provide the treatment you need. The medical practice isn’t a medical marijuana dispensary, and they don’t sell any flower.
