CBD Oil | Valparaiso & Merrillville
As a family dental practice that focuses on holistic, whole-body wellness as a means to improve dental health, Dr. Cathy Wong and the team at Heritage Lake Dental look forward to providing education for their patients about the potential benefits of natural pain and inflammation remedies.
What Is CBD Oil?
CBD is a compound found in the cannabis or hemp plant, and is just one of over 80 known cannabinoids. Unlike THC, the high-inducing compound also found in the cannabis plant, CBD does not have any mind-altering properties. In taking or using CBD in an oil form, many people have reported medical benefits.
Cannabinoids like CBD produce their effects on the body by attaching or influencing our body’s cannabinoid receptors. The body has two types of cannabinoid receptors; while THC, the high-inducing component of marijuana, attaches to the brain’s CB1 receptors, CBD influences CB2 receptors, which impact the immune system, inflammation, and pain, to use more of the body’s natural cannabinoids.
How Can CBD Oil Help You?
The FDA has recently approved CBD oil for use to treat two types of epilepsy. Because of its relatively recent discovery, its benefits are still being studied for additional medical treatments. However, people that take CBD oil have reported relief from pain and inflammation, anxiety disorders, as well as a host of other illnesses, ranging from cancer to diabetes to Alzheimer’s disease.
CBD oil is legal in all 50 states, but consumers should take care to ask providers of CBD oil for proof of content analysis, and ensure that the CBD oil that they’re using has none of the mind-altering compound THC, which can counter many of the potentially positive effects of CBD oil.
Dr. Wong and the team at Heritage Lake Dental work only with CBD oil providers that guarantee the purity and content of their oil by providing certificates of analysis from independent third party laboratories.
