What Is CBD Oil Good For?

What Is CBD Oil Good For?

Here at ViveCBD, we get asked a ton of questions every day about CBD and how it can help improve the quality of life.

And that’s because it doesn’t take much for someone with a curiosity about CBD very long to realize after they’ve spent a few minutes on the internet reading about CBD that we here at ViveCBD not only sell the best CBD products online, we also know what we’re talking about when it comes to CBD science, CBD culture, etc.

Whether it’s a very-detailed inquiry sent over email about the science behind CBD or a quick, little message about the shipping of our products via DM on one of our social media pages, one of our daily goals here at the company is that no question goes unanswered. 

And that’s because we not only want to help spread the good word about CBD, we also want to help everyone find CBD.  

CBD may have the ability to positively impact your life, and if you’re curious about how it might be able to do that, we want to help you.

And if you’re someone who’s been thinking about trying CBD to see how it might be able to improve your own quality of life, or you’re someone that’s looking to get the most out of CBD, it’s understandable that sooner or later you’d get curious about CBD Oil.

In fact, CBD Oil is one of our products that we’re asked about most-frequently.   

  • What is CBD oil?   
  • How is CBD oil made?   
  • Is CBD oil better than CBD gummies?   
  • Does CBD oil taste bad?  
  • What is CBD oil good for?

Since this isn’t going to be a super long article, let’s start with the last question first because it’s not only a question that we can use to really get into the positive benefits of CBD, it’s one that we can also use it to address several other aspects of CBD Oil that people are also curious about on the internet.

So what are CBD oils good for?

Actually: a lot of things, really.

But we totally get why people ask this question a lot.

What exactly is CBD good for really when it can taste so bad depending on where it's bought and how it's extracted.  

Why should anyone buy a funky-tasting oil to get CBD’s potential health benefits when there are more affordable and better-tasting methods of delivery available now such as CBD gummies, CBD honey sticks, CBD cookies, or CBD potato chips, et al?

Stop and think about it for a second:  What is it about CBD Oil that makes it such a much more desirable CBD product than any of the others out there on the market?

The answer is simple.

When it comes to the health benefits of CBD: CBD oil is preferred because out of the dozens of other CBD products on the market today, there isn't one that allows such an exact control over dosage or one that delivers CBD’s benefits as fast as a CBD oil does.

Because CBD Oil contends to offer such a fast delivery method, it’s understandable why they are so much more preferred regardless of how awful they may or may not taste and / or their price, because for anyone that knows someone that’s suffering from any of the following medical issues, quick delivery is essential to getting relief. 


CBD Oil May Help With Everything From Anxiety to Cancer

CBD oil may people find various states of relief if they suffer from any of the following medical conditions:

  • Epilepsy
  • Sleep Apnea
  • Sleepiness
  • Asthma
  • Help With Quitting Smoking
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Schizophrenia
  • Nausea
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Glaucoma 
  • Migraines / Cluster Headaches
  • PTSD
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • General Aches / Chronic Pains
  • Cancer

CBD may provide relief from a spectrum of health issues because it’s the medicinal chemical compound of the Cannabis sativa and indica plants.   


CBD  (Cbd) stands for cannabidiol.  Cannabidiol is the second active ingredient in the sativa and indica plants after tetrahydrocannabinol (Thc).

The Cannabinoid compound or the Phytocannabinoid compound is naturally-occuring not only in the sativa and indica plants, it's also a naturally-occurring molecule structure in our endocannabinoid system.


Our endocannabinoid system is one of the most important systems of the human brain because it dictates how the body processes such emotions, feelings, and reactions as anxiety and stress. It coordinates movement;  it sends pain signals; it tells us when we’re hungry; it is a tool of the immune system as well. 


Our endocannabinoid system also produces cannabinoids.  The Cannabinoids in CBD oil stimulate the naturally-occurring cannabinoid receptors of the endocannabinoid system.  


The Cannabinoids of CBD oil interact with the brain’s CB1 and CB2 receptors, which in turn, causes them to produce more molecules which result in the alleviation of inflammation, pain, anxiety, stress, and sour emotions.


The effect that CBD has on the endocannabinoid system may be achieved much faster when CBD Oil is used.   CBD oil is so popular as a delivery system because it’s a sublingual product. 


Sublingual science is simple: Sublinguals work faster because unlike other CBD products like gummies or cookies on the market they bypass your digestive system directly and be better absorbed and faster.


The capillaries underneath the tongue absorb CBD oil into the bloodstream in about a 90-second period once ingested orally.


There are two kinds of CBD Oil.  One is not intended to be ingested.  However, ingestible CBD oil such as the oil sold in CBD tincture form or the CBD oil used to make CBD potato chips, for example, is intended to be consumed. 


Ingestible CBD Oil is designed to be absorbed by the body’s bloodstream quickly. Ingestible CBD oil products are intended to offer a rapidly-delivery of CBD’s potential health benefits.  


Indeed, other CBD projects like topical CBD lotions and CBD edibles also provide the same benefits of ingestible CBD oil, but they unfortunately take a bit longer to be delivered because there is a longer pathway that they must take beforehand.


Products like CBD gummies, CBD honey sticks or CBD baked goods that feature the cannabidiol extract from the cannabis plant have to be ingested, firstly. You put them in your mouth, chew them up, and swallow them. 


Next, what’s just been physically-consumed must be broken down within the body; the digestive system has to have a few minutes to process the CBD chemical compound before it can then allow it to collaborate with the endocannabinoid system.

How CBD Oil Can Be Beneficial At Improving Quality of Life

Even though CBD science is still relatively new, studies like these on CBD oil as a treatment for chronic pain and how CBD oil can suppress inflammation in the body published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine, suggest how alternative CBD therapy may provide natural pain relief and provide improvement in quality of life to anyone suffering from anxiety, stress, aches and pains to even  those suffering from cancer.


This 2013 medical study conducted in the United Kingdom shows how CBD Oil can help reduce a cigarette smoker's cravings to light up during the time in which they are attempting to quit, therefore improving heart health.

Researchers conducting this 2015 medical study show not only how CBD oil can help people conquer opioid addiction, but they also suggest how CBD oil may also reduce the symptoms frequently-associated with anxiety and insomnia.  (Accessed in Feb. 2022)

Other scientific sources, such as two conducted in 2015 and 2019, show how CBD oil may reduce the symptoms associated with anxiety but also help reduce anxiety in patients with panic disorders, social anxiety disorders, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

In 2018, the FDA approved a purified form of CBD Oil to treat rare forms of epilepsy. Approved for use in people over the age of 3 years old, it has been proven to be more effective than any other drugs when it comes to combating the difficult to control seizures that are most-frequently associated with Lennox-Gastuat and Dravet Syndrome.

There are even studies that source the effects of CBD oil as recent as 2020 that look at the positive benefits of using CBD oil at the same time as chemotherapy drugs to improve immune systems in cancer patients. 

There is now significant scientific data that suggests that CBD oil can not only prevent the spread of some types of cancer, it may also be beneficial at suppressing the growth of cancer cells and may also assist in their destruction during chemotherapy treatment. 

CBD Oil may also help the immune system fight off diabetes as well. Studies conducted in 2016 and 2018 suggest how CBD oil may not only help the immune system it may also help the pancreas fight against pain as a result of inflammation associated with Type 1 Diabetes.  (Accessed Jan. 2022)


CBD Oil: The Do’s And Don’ts


If you’ve been thinking about trying CBD oil, or know someone who you might think would benefit from it because CBD oil is an all-natural, alternate health therapy product, it’s important to remember that you don’t ever want to use CBD as if it were a vitamin or sports nutrition supplement.  


With the variety of CBD products on the market today, it’s important that you do know what dosage might be right for you to start out with.  CBD products from CBD gummies, CBD honey sticks, and CBD cornbread to CBD lotions and CBD ingestible oils each offer not only various recommended dosages, they are also sold in various spectrums too which affects potency.


Some products offer more milligrams per dosage than others; some products come in different flavors, etc.


When it comes to deciding on what delivery-method and what dosage might work best for you when you’re first starting out with CBD oil, do always begin your journey by “low dropping.” 


According to Dr. Cheryl Bugailiskis M.D., a cannabis specialist at Heally, an online alternative medicine platform, when a person wants to know about where they should start when it comes to CBD oil dosage, it’s always “best to start small and gradually increase your dose up to a level that gives you the desired effect.”


Those who wish to try CBD oil may also wish to consult with their primary healthcare physician or with a doctor with a background in CBD or alternative medicine therapy before they begin a CBD oil regime as well to see what might be the suggested ideal dosage based on their current situation, condition, and/or symptoms, etc.


Please consult with your primary healthcare physician or a doctor with a background in CBD therapy before you begin taking CBD oil if you are currently on medications such as those intended to thin the blood or others prescribed to specifically address seizures or heart rhythm and thyroid conditions.


CBD delivery-method should be considered after you consider your own personal usage-goals; budget; preferences on taste, etc.  


As mentioned earlier in this article, CBD products have a range of bioavailability – so, again it’s important to remember that CBD Oil tends to “work” faster than other CBD products CBD gummies, for example.  However, faster doesn’t mean better. 

Don’t be ashamed to take “baby steps” when you first begin to take CBD.  

Taking “baby steps” and “low-dosing” is key in the prevention of using too much CBD.  Extreme amounts of CBD in the body (over 1,500 milligrams on any day) may produce unpleasant side-effects such as dry mouth, nausea, diarrhea, drowsiness, dizziness, lightheadedness, disorientation, confusion, and in some even more extreme situations, liver damage.
