CBD Oil is one of the newest among many controversial and popular topics in the Tri-State in 2018 and I'm wondering: Why?

First of all, what is CBD Oil? CBD, or otherwise known as Cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring ingredient found in hemp used for natural medicinal purposes. CBD comes from industrial hemp and not marijuana plants, thus the CBD oil is almost 100% free of the psychoactive ingredient THC. Many laws around the United States mandate that CBD Oil must have 0.3% THC or less to be sold on store shelves. In other words, if you're looking to get high, CBD oil isn't the way to go about it.

CBD Oil offers help to patients suffering from a variety of ailments, including anxiety, chronic pain, and much, much more. Scientific studies have shown promise in using CBD to treat chronic pain and anxiety specifically, although more studies are currently being conducted to see if CBD oil could effectively treat other conditions as well. Since millions of people depend on prescription drugs throughout the United States to treat these issues, CBD oil offers a nice natural alternative to those drugs for those who are willing to try it.

So, in short, CBD oil is being talked about everywhere in the Tri-state area for the same reasons it's being talked about all over the country - it's a safe, natural alternative to other treatments which might be invasive or come with many unwanted side effects. Many people who have tried CBD oil now swear by it, saying they couldn't live without it. Tri-state area stores are having a hard time keeping the oil in stock because so many residents are believers in its ability to heal.

Speaking of Tri-state area vendors, you can find CBD Oil locally in Evansville at Adele's Naturally or at The Artist's Tribe in Owensboro, Kentucky.
