Understanding CBD Carrier Oils

If you’ve read the label of your CBD oil, you may have noticed that it contains more than just CBD. Oil is also present within your CBD product to help deliver or ‘carry’ the active CBD component to your body.

In addition to the added benefit of absorption, using a carrier oil to deliver CBD also allows for more precise and consistent dosing.

CBD & Pain

CBD & pain – cannabidiol (CBD) is often discussed as an alternative medicine option for those seeking relief from pain, especially chronic pain or arthritis.

That said, it may contribute to your health and promote pain relief when used regularly. The majority of patients who use CBD do so as a result of chronic pain, joint pain, as well as anxiety.
