It has the capability to positively affect your body according to some health remedy experts.
It’s sold in all 50 states and has some of the same effects as medical marijuana.
But what is CBD Oil?
CBD oil’s popularity has been on the rise recently.
Both the Bis-Man Food Coop and Terry Health Products in Bismarck sell it.
The co-op says they have customers requesting it by name and that it can potentially do a lot of good.
It’s an up and coming wellness item, and it’s getting a lot of attention for its health benefits.
Desiree Uttke, Bis-Man Food Coop Grocery Manager, says, “CBD stands for cannabidiol, which is essentially a compound of the hemp plant.”
CBD oil comes in many forms and it can either be a shot or a mist among other things. And even has many health benefits.
“Maybe acne, any pain symptoms, joint pain, more serious conditions, even such as cancer, so it is definitely an alternative to traditional western medicine, but people are giving it a shot,” adds Uttke.
About 1 year ago, Troyous Ricciardi started using CBD.
Troyous Ricciardi, CBD Oil User, says, “I decided to try it because I have 3 compressed vertebrae fractured and I have a lot of inflammation.
And now he claims he is an everyday user.
Troyous 2: “I had heard that it was really good for inflammation, that it could be good for pain and it could be good for sleep.”
It is an all natural product and legal in all 50 states.
Uttke says, “It is from the hemp plant and that is different from the medical marijuana plant because of the amount of THC in it. So because it contains less than .3% THC that makes it legal for us to sell it.”
Troyous Ricciardi notices a difference when he doesn’t take it.
“I found that if I don’t use it I do have trouble still falling asleep, and when I do use it, which is almost every night I fall asleep right away, I wake up refreshed,” says Ricciardi
It is not the cheapest remedy as 1 chocolate bar costs nearly 10 dollars, but a bottle of it can last roughly 1-2 months.
Anyone can use it, however, you do have to be over the age of 18 to buy it.
