Over the last few years, we’ve noticed a rise in people looking for CBD (Cannabidiol). CBD has many health benefits for a variety of people including but not limited to reducing pain, anxiety and promoting sleep. At Ageless Integrated Medicine, we offer a full spectrum, holistic CBD oils designed to help different ailments. Listed below are some of the main benefits of CBD oil, and some questions and answers about CBD oil.

Lessens Anxiety and Depression Symptoms

Anxiety, depression, or a combination of the two affect about 43 million adults in the USA. While many pharmaceuticals exist to help reduce the symptoms of both disorders, they also pose a risk of addiction and have many undesirable side effects. CBD oil is a natural product that lessens anxiety and depression symptoms without the risk of addiction. Since CBD oil is natural it has very minimal side effects in comparison to prescription medications written by a doctor. Additionally, you don’t need a prescription for CBD oil. It is very important to buy CBD oil from a reputable source, one that is full spectrum, extracted from hemp that is USDA certified.

Pain Relief

If you’re looking for a generalized pain relief, CBD oil can help. For years, studies have shown that CBD oil can help ease pain for many people. As many people look for alternative methods for pain relief instead of narcotics, CBD oil presented a non-addictive way to relieve pain. Some of the diseases CBD oil helps with include arthritis, chronic pain, and spinal cord injuries. Additionally, CBD oil can help decrease symptoms from other neurological disorders.

Other Neuroprotective Qualities

At Ageless Integrated Medicine, we offer many services that may decrease your chance of getting neurological diseases as you age. Hormone replacement therapy is a great way to help that. However, you also have other treatment options. Some studies show that CBD oil can help with the symptoms related to any neurological disorders. CBD oil can help treat symptoms associated in patients with epilepsy and multiple sclerosis. At AIM, in addition to CBD oil, we also have CBG (Cannabigerol) which has more neuroprotective qualities, especially when combined with CBD oil. While these studies are newer, they do show some promise in alternative treatments.

CBD Oil Legality in Ohio

Many states have different laws surrounding the use of CBD oil. In Ohio, Governor Mike DeWine signed a bill into law in July 2019 that allows medical practices to retail CBD oil. This essentially stated that CBD oil is no longer a controlled substance in the state of Ohio. However, the current law is only for hemp-derived CBD.

Of course, many more CBD oil benefits exist. The list above consists of some of the highlights. At Ageless Integrated Medicine, we want to give you a variety of ways to naturally and holistically turn back the clock or fight pain. CBD oil is one way to do that.
