Why Moms use CBD oil


As the owner of a CBD oil company, Palm Organix, and a mom of four children, I can attest to why many moms are turning to CBD oil products to help promote and support a healthy wellbeing. Whether you are a new mom or a Grandmom, the active ingredients in CBD products may help with acute or long time health conditions in a natural way. Important to note that CBD products are currently not FDA approved to diagnose, treat, prevent or cure any disease, and further long term research and clinical studies are needed.

What is CBD?

CBD stands for cannabidiol, and it is one of over one hundred cannabinoids found in industrial hemp plants. CBD works within the human body through the receptors of the endocannabinoid system. CBD binds to these receptors and helps promote homeostasis. The endocannabinoid system helps to keep the body in balance by regulating many critical bodily functions. More CBD research is needed to understand the impact of CBD in this system.

CBD was federally legalized by the Farm Bill in 2018 as long as the THC content of the hemp extract in CBD containing products remains below .3%. CBD from the industrial hemp plant should not be confused with cannabis products that are formulated from the cannabis plant. These types of cannabis products contain higher amounts of THC, and are not legal to be purchased online.

The benefits of CBD use is unlike cannabis use, CBD does not contain THC, and does not cause a psychoactive effect. Those who use CBD oil and other hemp derived products are able to function in daily life, as there is no “high” or “stoned” effect. Medical marijuana use, and other drugs may cause disruptions in activities of daily living.

Why choose CBD oils?

Most moms are fairly health conscience, and will typically search for organic or natural remedies as opposed to prescription medications if possible. Prescription drug use can cause numerous side effects that may interfere with a person’s entire life. Taking medication is often necessary, but can cause addiction. Seeking a natural solution such as CBD is becoming very popular because there are so few side effects. In fact, The World Health Organization stated there’s no known addiction potential associated with CBD.

Physical Benefits

The effects of CBD oil may support chronic pain relief efforts from conditions such as arthritis, sore muscles, and joint discomfort. Daily use of CBD oil may help reduce the inflammation that causes this type of medical condition.

Mental Benefits

Use of cannabidiol to help reduce stress and anxiety is also becoming very popular. In similar fashion, those who have sleep issues due to stress may also benefits from CBD’s calming effects. The there is little research on effects of CBD in mental health at this time.

Types of CBD products

  • Edibles- CBD edibles include any product taken orally such as CBD tinctures (oral drops), CBD capsules, CBD gummies, and foods infused with CBD.
  • Topicals- Topical products include lotions, balms, salves, and other creams that are applied directly to the skin.
  • Inhalants- This category includes CBD products that are vaped or smoked.

What to look for before buying CBD products

It is important that when using a CBD product, you look for one that is high quality. To determine quality first make sure that the hemp is organically grown in the United States. Hemp that is source overseas may pose a potential risk due to heavy metals or harsh chemicals used in the extraction process. To really understand exactly what is in a product you should look for third party laboratory testing. These lab results will ensure the purity and potency of the product.

How much CBD oil to take

There is no exact dosage chart for taking CBD and certain conditions such as age, weight, metabolism, and severity of condition will all affect an individuals ideal dose. The best thing to do is start slow with a lower dosage and continue to increase the amount of CBD to the level which produces the health benefits you are seeking.

Pregnant Women

Is CBD oil safe to use during pregnancy? No, CBD is not recommended for use during pregnancy, ie pregnant women, as there may be harmful effects and interactions with the developing fetus. The expectant mother and the developing baby have not been researched enough to determine the effects of maternal cannabinoid exposure. Pregnant patients should seek experts advise before using any CBD product, as the reproductive system has not had comprehensive research studying the long term effects.Additionally, new mothers should be aware that a mother’s milk production (breast milk) containing CBD potentially could be harmful and may pose serious risks to the newborn. Limited research indicates there is a possibility that presence of CBD in human milk harms the infant.
