What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, better known as CBD, is found in the hemp plant. CBD differs from marijuana because it does not contain THC, which has a psychoactive effect and changes your state of mind. However, research shows that CBD does produce changes in the body and can provide medical benefits.
What can CBD help with?
CBD can help with a variety of issues or complaints. CBD has been shown to significantly decrease seizures in people with epilepsy. It has high anti-inflammatory and calming qualities that help people that suffer from anxiety, stress, gut issues (IBS, Crohn’s disease) or chronic pain like fibromyalgia or rheumatoid arthritis. CBD is a great natural alternative to prescription medicines that have harmful side effects.
Is CBD legal?
Our office sells Medterra products because they are fully compliant with State and Federal legislations and contain zero THC derived from US grown industrial hemp. CBD is legal in all 50 states. However, as a consumer, it is important to know where CBD oil is derived from. If the CBD is manufactured from the marijuana plant, it will contain THC and it will show up on drug screens for example. You can trust that Medterra’s products are 100% legal.
Research has shown that adults can tolerate a wide arrange of doses very well. The biggest complaint was tiredness.
How to use CBD
Medterra offers three varieties of products. The first is a topical cream. The pain cream comes in two strengths, 250 mg & 750 mg. We have had great success with patients using this pain cream. It significantly helps with muscular discomfort and stiffness. Next is the oil tincture. This product is meant to be taken internally under your tongue in the morning or at night. You can purchase 500mg, 1000mg or 3000mg and adjust to your liking. CBD is great for anxiety, stress, gut issues or chronic pain because it is working internally in your body and with the receptors in your brain. It can also be bought in a capsule form but the highest concentration of CBD is 50 mg. Lastly, Medterra offers sleep tablets. The tablets contains 25mg of CBD and 10mg of melatonin. The CBD and melatonin is a great combination for people that suffer from insomnia or sleep related issues due to discomfort but without the side effects of sleeping pills.
