Many of us have been stuck in traffic and noticed roadside signs or smoke shops advertising for CBD oil. But, does it work? Is it safe? Is it legal? How is it different than marijuana?
Well, we are here to tell you that it is legitimate and it works! CBD (or Cannabinoid) oil is extracted from the marijuana plant. The CBD portion of the plant is extremely valuable, particularly in treating pain. CBD oil is used to unlock the body’s own endocannabinoid system, which effects metabolism, diabetes, pain regulation, inflammation, digestion, and so much more! CBD oil also has none of the hallucinogenic properties typically associated with marijuana or THC.
The benefits of CBD oil are:
– Powerful anti-inflammatory
– Fewer/no side effects compared to current medications
– No hallucinogenic properties
In our experience, CBD oils work well for a number of patients including:
– Patients that can not tolerate NSAIDs
– Patients with allergies/dependence issues with opioids
– Patients who have tried numerous options unsuccessfully
– Patients who are not surgical candidates
– Patients with chronic pain
At Capital Foot and Ankle, we carry a wide range of CBD oils. We carry numerous sublingual options and flavors. Most of our sublingual options are full-spectrum, meaning they contain more of the hemp plant than just the CBD, including small amounts of THC (less than 0.3%), however we do carry isolated CBD sublingual oil as well. We also carry gummies and softgels than can be taken orally, as well as several topical options.
If interested, stop in and ask our experts. All of our staff have been trained on the use of CBD oil and are available to answer questions. CBD oils are available over the counter at Capital Foot and Ankle, so no appointment is necessary! Stop in today!
