In recent years, cannabidiol (CBD) oil has exploded in popularity within the United States. Cannabidiol is derived from hemp. This particular plant is considered to be a close relation to the marijuana plant; however, it does not result in the same sense of euphoria or the “high” as marijuana.
The World Health Organization claims that while CBD is closely related to marijuana, to date, it has not shown the same potential for abuse or any potential for dependence.
Of course, this statement only pertains to pure CBD oil.
No health problems have been associated with CBD oil. In fact, quite the opposite is occurring – that is, CBD oil seems to help with many health problems – more specifically, pain.
If you are burdened by pain, it is time to find a CBD dispensary and try out the product for yourself!
Is CBD Oil Legal?
All 50 states within the US have laws in place that have legalized CBD oil; however, many have restrictions in place associated with the legalities of its usage.
CBD is recognized as being in the same class that marijuana is in by the federal government; however, this is not an issue in those states – such as Colorado – that have legalized marijuana.
It is still available and considered to be “legal” in states that have yet to legalize marijuana; however, one will need to uphold and go along with the restrictions that are in place within those states.
Currently, Congress is in the process of legalizing hemp. Once that is in place, there should no longer be restrictions with CBD or prohibitions associated with it.
If you are in the State of Colorado, yes, CBD oil is legal and may be purchased, kept, and utilized in the manner in which designated for the purpose and intent of optimizing your health.
How to Get CBD Oil
There are several ways to obtain CBD oil. Until recently, most obtained CBD products at the many dispensaries throughout the United States.
These retail outlets carry products that are typically used to consume tobacco products or cannabis products.
Once CBD oil started gaining in popularity, many online retailers started specializing in the products. Being that many health benefits are now associated with CBD oil, there are many physical therapists that are offering special CBD dispensary stores within their practice.
While these shops and online CBD dispensary stores are known to carry high-quality products, most individuals are now turning to those within the healthcare industry – such as physical therapists – to purchase CBD oil.
These professionals are in a better position to advise and instruct patients on the proper use of CBD and how to reap the highest rewards from the product.
I Can Get CBD From My Physical Therapist?
A physical therapist might offer a variety of high-quality, safe CBD oils to individuals wishing to experience the health benefits of these products.
In many instances, a PT practice may offer customers and their patients a traditional CBD dispensary with an online store where products may be ordered conveniently from the comfort of home.
Why Should I Buy CBD from a Physical Therapy CBD Dispensary Shop?
There are many reasons why you should purchase CBD through a physical therapist. All of which comes back to one thing – your safety.
As mentioned previously, hemp is closely related to the marijuana plant. When it is cultivated, it must be monitored closely to ensure that no potentially harmful chemicals are absorbed during the growth process and to ensure proper levels of cannabidiol is present.
The hemp plant contains both THC (the substance that gets people high when they use marijuana) and CBD (the product used in OTC oil products).
Physical therapists will ensure that the products that they offer do not contain harmful chemicals or THC. If THC is present, it will be in only very small amounts.
Do I Need a CBD Prescription to Buy from a Physical Therapist?
To date, there are two types of cannabidiol. There is one type that is extracted from plants grown for medical marijuana and one grown from a hemp plant. The medical marijuana plant has higher levels of THC, which is psychoactive. This type of CBD does require a prescription from a medical doctor.
The CBD oil extracted from industrial hemp plants does not require a CBD prescription.
This is because hemp oil is considered to be a type of dietary supplement from the federal government, not a type of medication.
While hemp-based CBD oil typically does contain very small traces of THC, it is not enough to impact cognitive functioning or create the “high” that is associated with marijuana.
The Pain-Relieving Benefits of CBD Oil Obtained from a PT CBD Dispensary
There are many benefits associated with the oils purchased at a CBD dispensary owned and/or operated by a physical therapist. These include – but are not limited to – the following:
- Individuals that suffer from pain will experience immediate relief. This is because the oil will impact the endocannabinoid receptors that are naturally in the body. When this happens, inflammation is reduced, and pain is eliminated as it helps change the way that the body perceived pain.
- Unlike prescription pain medications, CBD oil is not addictive. It is a natural solution for a natural problem.
- The CBD oil that you purchase is pure and considered to be safe. It does not contain harmful additives, chemicals, and other substances that may have a negative impact on your health.
