What can't CBD do? It's widely known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety effects, and becoming more popular by the day being used for a variety of ailments, most notably, pain relief. CBD oil contains CBD extracts from cannabis plants and is beneficial in reducing inflammation as well, a common and annoying side effect of your body's white blood cells protecting you from infection. And if this goes untreated too long, inflammation can soon turn into a bigger problem like,  heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, asthma, depression and arthritis, among others.

As you know, CBD is non psychoactive and essentially only affects the way pain receptors respond to stimuli.  So they attach to the CB2 receptors, which manages pain and inflammation. And using CBD oil to create topical products like creams and gels, makes it easier and more accessible to for everyday use, especially considering the stress, pollution and environmental factors that may activate your body's inflammatory response at any given time. So while CBD oil isn't the end all, cure all,  it is continuing to gain popularity among those wishing to steer clear of prescription meds but still want the relief.
