On The Dr. Oz Show, the latest trend of using CBD is discussed as well as CBD oil impacts on the body. Dr. Sanjay Gupta also briefly explains that the medical community is still using CBD, even though it’s considered illegal on the federal level.
The Dr. Oz Show quotes a statistic that sales in the CBD industry are expected to grow 700 percent in the next two years. It’s no surprise that by 2024, Forbes estimates the CBD market to surpass $20 billion.
What CBD Oil Does
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a component of cannabis and is derived from the hemp plant. The other well known component of cannabis is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). CBD oil impacts the body differently than THC, it gives users the benefits of medical marijuana, but without the intoxicating effects. CBD can help with a variety of ailments, including: pain, anxiety and even seizures.
The main question on everyone’s mind: Is it legal?
Dr. Sanjay Gupta briefly discusses the main ingredients in cannabis and why the different ingredients would be considered illegal. He is hopeful for the resurgence in CBD’s use in the medical community since it has been used as a medicine in the past.
CBD Oil Impacts Seizures
In 2012, a little girl named Charlotte was suffering from a rare form of epilepsy. A new strain of hemp had been developed that was high in CBD and low in THC and was shared with her mother who then administered it to her. The strain, which would widely become known as Charlotte’s Web, helped reduce her seizures and and symptoms. This paved the way for the first FDA approved CBD product to treat epilepsy.
There has also been a noticeable correlation between the legality of CBD at the state level and the amount of opioid prescriptions written by doctors, says Dr. Sanjay Gupta.
