What Is CBD?
Cannabinoids are fat-based compounds produced in the cannabis sativa plant. There are over 100 different kinds of cannabinoids including the well-known psychoactive THC. Researchers are currently working diligently to evaluate the therapeutic effects of many of these cannabinoids.
Besides THC, cannabidiol (CBD) is the other major cannabinoid found in the cannabis sativa plant. However, CBD is not psychoactive. It has also been shown to exert a great deal of therapeutic value. The reported benefits of CBD include, but aren’t limited to, reducing inflammation, anticonvulsant effects in epilepsy patients, cancer-fighting benefits, managing anxiety, and analgesic (painkilling) benefits. CBD is also currently being evaluated for its potential use in treating a number of other conditions including mood disorders, PTSD and insomnia. With so much healing promise, it’s no wonder CBD has rapidly gained popularity among health-conscious consumers, with a current estimated market value of $1.9 billion for this year.
Popular CBD Uses for Veterans
CBD oil for pain
One of the most promising aspects of CBD research is its ability to reduce pain. Since CBD is available in so many different applications — as CBD oil, CBD topicals like balms, or CBD capsules — its ability to treat pain is extremely versatile.
CBD oil for anxiety
Another popular therapeutic use of CBD is as an anxiolytic supplement. This effect can be useful when it comes to managing a number of conditions including PTSD, hypervigilance, insomnia, and general anxiety.
Can you take CBD if you’re actively serving in the military?
While CBD’s therapeutic promise shows a number of promising results, the use of CBD oil for active military members is still prohibited as of 2022 for every military branch as well as the Guard and Reserve. However military members can consume CBD in the form of the FDA approved drugs, Epidiolex, Marinol and Syndros with a valid medical prescription.
More Popular Products for Military Members
Looking to get started with CBD? Here are some of our most popular CBD products for veterans:
Full Spectrum CBD Oil for Pain, Anxiety, and Sleep Issues
As mentioned above, CBD is popularly used for pain and anxiety. Additionally, those who suffer from sleep trouble report relief from CBD. Our CBD oil is a full spectrum product, meaning it contains all of the plant’s various compounds including cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids for the most potent therapeutic value possible. Common benefits reported in customer reviews include relief from inflammatory pain, reduced anxiety, and better sleep.
Not keen on taking CBD in oil form? Get the same formula in our full spectrum CBD softgels for on-the-go relief. Alternatively, you can apply our full spectrum CBD balm directly to the skin to help treat aches, pains, and irritation.
Full Spectrum CBC Oil for Better Focus
Cannabichromene (CBC for short) is another type of cannabinoid. While more research on CBC’s effects is still underway, existing studies have shown that CBC exerts a positive effect on neural stem progenitor cells (NSPCs), a type of cell imperative to healthy brain functioning. Not only that, CBC has been shown to possess analgesic properties as well. Our CBC oil customers report better focus, motivation, and cognitive function, in addition to other benefits.
Full Spectrum CBG Oil for Pain Relief
One of the most interesting cannabinoids veterans should keep an eye on is cannabigerol (CBG). Known as “the mother of all cannabinoids” because other cannabinoids are derived from an acidic form of CBD known as cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), CBG is extremely unique from other cannabinoids. As such it’s been shown to demonstrate a number of benefits including acting as a powerful neuroprotectant agent as well as analgesic (painkilling) and anti-inflammatory properties. CBG is also a GABA reuptake inhibitor, which means it increases the amount of GABA available in the body, thereby producing a calming effect.
Looking to try CBG yourself? Check out our full spectrum CBG oil or CBG softgels. Common benefits reported in customer reviews include pain relief, especially for neuropathic conditions, as well as a boost in mood.
Full Spectrum CBN for Better Sleep
Cannabinerol (CBN) is a cannabinoid associated with improved sleep. Many consumers claim CBN has sedating properties that help put them at ease, relax their bodies, and sleep more restfully.
Eager to get more rest? Try our CBN oil, which is CO2 extracted and full spectrum, which means you’ll be getting the full therapeutic benefits from all compounds in the hemp plant but without chemicals or additives. You can also try our full spectrum 15 mg CBN softgels instead.
