2018 Farm Bill legalizes the cannabidiol (CBD) and ensures that any cannabinoid derived from hemp are legal, which set the stage for explosive growth and widespread application of CBD.
The interest of general public in the CBD is far exceeding the scientific advancements in the field. Even without proof, CBD is finding a niche as a cure-all.
If you google CBD and any disease conditions, there are millions of articles appeared in your search. The positive testimonials on CBD oil help different disease conditions may make you feel that it is a universal magic pill.
As listed in previous articles, CBD Oil for Cancer Treatment and CBD Oil for Quit Smoking, the CBD Oil is effective for treatment of many diseases. How could CBD oil have such widespread positive outcome on all disease conditions?
CBD’s diverse receptors, or cannabinoid receptors, profile explains its application for a wide variety of medical conditions. Cannabinoid receptors are activated endogenously by the body through the endocannabinoid system, which are involved in many physiological processes. Through its modulation of neurotransmitter release, the endocannabinoid system regulates cognition, pain sensation, appetite, memory, sleep, immune function, and mood among many other bodily systems.
Apparently, these scientific evidences support that CBD, which comes from the hemp plant, can be a real relief for numerous ailments such as pain, anxiety, inflammation and even cancer.
CBD oil is extracts from the hemp plant, a close relative to another member of the cannabis family, marijuana. Both plants contain abundant types of cannabinoids, but marijuana is high in the psychoactive chemical tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), while hemp is rich in CBD, which doesn’t create a high but may offer a range of medicinal benefits as described above.
So far, there is only one CBD product, Epidiolex, approved by the US Food and Drug Administration. It is officially supported as an effective treatment for two rare forms of epilepsy, Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome. But that doesn’t stop many true believers from making enthusiastic claims.
Even without solid scientific research to back it up, it is expected that there is a vast array of CBD related products in the coming year, including baked goods, drinks, and massage lotions, besides the very popular CBD oil. It is becoming big business and projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of more than 100 percent and sales expected to hit $20 billion in the next few years.
On the other hand, we have a long history of people using snake oil to convince innocent people they’re getting something hopeful and useful. We need to prevent dangerous situations where people turn down effective medications to use unproven products, like CBD.
In terms of current standard medicine, there is little information about the medicinal effects of CBD on human body. The main reason is that federal laws on marijuana, which have long been considered as Schedule 1 drugs, defined as having no accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse.
This classification puts any kind of cannabis, including CBD, in the same category as heroin, which means that there is no way even to get any cannabinoids to study in animal model and human being.
Things are now changing dramatically. The 2018 Farm Bill legalize industrial hemp. It is free to obtain CBD and CBD related materials. We are going to witness human data on the consumption of the CBD and accumulate scientific data on what it will work for and what it will not.
Meanwhile, please understand that there is an enormous placebo effect. At the current environment, most people take CBD and come with expectation. With the cycle of the society exciting about it and saying this will cure whatever ails you, it often will. But the placebo psychologic effects are short-lived and not likely to eliminate the true causes of the illness.
If you’re going to take it, you have to understand there is little data and you have to be very careful about the source and you need to talk to your doctor about how it might interact with other drugs you are taking. The CBD is relatively safe and free of side effects. It does appear to interact with other drugs, such as psychological drugs.
The 2018 Farm Bill is likely to make 2019 the year of CBD! It is exciting time to be part of CBD community and business.

Interesting progress on the legalization of CBD oil. I have been taking CBD for several months now and I do believe it helps with my depression and anxiety. I ran out a week or two ago and do feel my anxiety creeping in a lot more. How do you determine if a website is offering good quality CBD? I feel like with the explosion of its popularity there are probably gonna be a lot of scamming companies trying to produce and sell low-quality product.
Thanks for sharing your personal experience. I am happy that CBD does help you.
It is very important to purchase high quality CBD. Here are the some ways for you to identify the high quality CBD:
1. Buy from reputed companies; 2 ask the source of manufacture’s hemp; 3. ask for third-party lab test results; 4 check the amount of THC in the CBD oil. If you buy from CTFO, all above information can be found in their website: https://www.tryctfo.com/kcancer.
Hello, I find your article about CBD Oil very good and informative. Nowadays with legalization in some countries or states worldwide, the things are getting better about CBD products, more and more people trust it.

I did not know that there was a formulation approved by the FDA. I recall having watched a YouTube video, whereby a kid was having an epileptic episode. Within a few seconds on them giving him the CBD, this kid calmed done. Absolutely amazing stuff.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and research on CBD Oil. I think I am a hopeful believer in CBD oil. I have written several posts on CBD oil. I actually like that you talked about the placebo effect this might have which may not last too long. Hence continuing with prescribed medication. I have been taking CBD oil and I am really out to find the best of the best and honest product in the market because I want to try out only CBD oil and see for myself if it works or not. So thank you for sharing this information. How do you know that CTFO is reliable and effective CBD product?
Thanks for sharing your personal experience with us. I am going to ready you post on CBD.
You raised a very realistic question: how do you know that one CBD product is reliable and effective? First, you need to know the source of the CBD and make sure that CBD farms have high quality plants; Second, CBD purification process needs to be current Good Manufacture Practice (cGMP) certified; and third, make sure to get the third-party testing results.
CTFO is a trusted CBD company, who provides all above documents to approve the their genuine CBD products. A number of my friends and I have been using CTFO products for a while and none of us have any complain about CTFO products.
If you need any info about CTFO products, please let me know and I will try my best to help.
Hi Anthony and thanks for this honest post.
It makes sense that there would be a placebo effect with all the hype CBD has received recently. It will be very interesting to follow any scientific studies done on human consumption.
That begin said, if people find that it helps them, then I’m happy they are finding relief from whatever it is that ails them. I just hope they are talking with their physicians about it too.
It is so nice to see that government approved CBD and with it, it is possible now to see there are going to have a lot of studies on CBD and its effects on human illness. The double blind studies will provide information on the potential placebo effects.
I am happy to see that many people find CBD help them and I agree with you that we should consul our physician since CBD has interactions with many medicines.
Thanks for your stopping by and consistent support!
You are correct in that CBD will have explosive growth this year. I am glad we are able to work in a business that helps others. I hope we can help others in countries outside of the US get relief from pain soon. It is wonderful that CBD is able to help others without the high cost that the use of opioids brings, be it money or addiction.
As more people use and more studies are performed on it, CBD will become popular. It is no doubt to me that more countries will adopt this magic agent.
One important advantage is that CBD has very limited side effects comparing to opioids.
