what does hempworx help with

That said, if you’re dealing with chronic pain and are already on medication for it, talk with your doctor about combining those traditional meds with CBD. More than 50 percent of long-term opioid users who added CBD to their treatment were able to reduce their opioid use and 90 percent of them had better quality of life within two months, according to research Capano recently conducted, which is pending publication. “We know that CBD is effective with pain and it’s safe to use with opioids—plus, it can help with withdrawal symptoms as you lower opioid use,” she says. “There’s pretty good data that CBD can be a treatment for substance abuse disorders. We should be motivated to use something that’s safer and doesn’t have the risk of dependency or overdose.”

All that being said, if you’re taking CBD for a condition like anxiety or epilepsy, the potential drawbacks are generally milder or less of a nuisance than the side effects you might expect from traditional medical treatments.

From gummies to pills to beauty creams, CBD is everywhere: Americans spent more than $360 million on products with this cannabis compound in 2017. And devotees claim it boosts health and has all the bliss-out benefits of weed, minus the paranoia. But how much do you really know about it? We’ll be honest, what it is (and isn’t) and what is does and how it works is complex—and had us more than a little confused before we started working on this project. So we asked an expert, Alex Capano, chief science officer for Ananda Hemp, a Kentucky-based health and wellness brand specializing in CBD products—a woman who spends all day every day studying CBD—to breakdown everything we might possibly want to know about the plant derivative. That way, you can feel confident adding it to your medicine cabinet (and nightstand, and handbag) ASAP.

Can CBD lower my anxiety?

There are tons of CBD products on the market, from lotions you rub on to capsules you swallow and tinctures you drop under your tongue. All these are made similarly: By extracting CBD, or cannabidiol, from a cannabis plant and then diluting it with a carrier, such as coconut oil, explains Capano. The way you choose to use it is totally a matter of preference and might require some experimentation.

Unlike smoking a joint, using CBD won’t leave you with a giggling fit or the munchies. It can, however, make you sleepy. “The most common side effect is drowsiness, so don’t take it for the first time and get behind the wheel or head into a big presentation,” advises Capano. Wait to see how your body responds, just in case. In some cases, CBD can exacerbate heartburn or lead to mild allergic reactions, such as hives (though this is likely a reaction to the carrier oil added to the CBD, says Capano). Using CBD can also cause diarrhea or change in appetite or weight, according to a recent German study.

How fast your CBD takes effect totally depends on what form you’re using. Need to kick an acute ache, like a migraine, ASAP? Try vaping, suggests Capano. Vaporizing CBD has the fastest delivery—you should feel the effects set in within mere minutes.

Whenever you’re starting out with a new product, the best time to try it is right before bed—just in case it makes you drowsy, says Capano. Even if it doesn’t, you’re pretty much guaranteed a good night’s sleep.

I cannot thank you enough for bringing this product to my attention. This could be the start of a new life for me . I still have skeletal issues which I don't think this product can fix, lol . but depression, anxiety, chronic pain . I feel 1,000% better than I did only two days ago. God bless you! "

I have auto immune disease, rheumatoid arthritis, spinal stenosis, spinal scoliosis, bulging discs on nerve roots, chronic pain, neuropathy, depression, anxiety. I am/was on five pharma meds: Ralivia 100mg, Cymbalta 60mg, Tecta 40mg, Paxil 30mg and Hydromorphone 1mg (as needed). I am a walking chemical! And I believe I have found a solution.

Slight decrease in appetite! Very little pain! No morning stiffness! I am happy! I am content! I am so blessed to have found this company! I can't say enough about how good I feel.

Heck, I changed the sheets AND vacuumed in the SAME DAY! If you have pain, you know how special THAT is!!
