You may have been hearing about CBD oil, or CBD rich hemp oil lately. I have heard about it for some time, but mistakenly thought that CBD oil was marijuana.
What is CBD Rich Hemp Oil?
CBD oil, or cannabidiol, comes from the hemp plant. Hemp and marijuana are both in the cannabis family. CBD rich hemp oil is made from hemp that is high in CBD. This hemp is grown to be rich in CBD.
CBD is one of many cannabinoids (85 to be exact) that have been identified in the cannabis plant. You have most likely heard of the most common cannabinoid, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), in marijuana. THC is psychotropic, or what gives you a high.
The main difference between marijuana and hemp is the ratio of THC and CBD. Marijuana has much higher amounts of THC and lower amounts of CBD whereas with hemp there are higher amounts of CBD and trace amounts of THC. This is why many people are seeking out CBD oil. Taking CBD rich hemp oil will not give you a high.

My Family’s Experience
My grandfather started taking CBD oil months ago. It was so great to hear that almost immediately my family noticed him moving around better. My mom was recounting the story to me (my parents have taken care of him for 3 years now).
My grandfather has had multiple sclerosis (MS) for decades now. He has done pretty well compared to many others with his condition due to his careful attention to his diet. He also used to swim every day for years, up until a few years ago.
That being said, his condition has progressed more over the past several years. My grandmother got sick several years ago and then passed away. Before she got sick, she was the number one person that took care of all of my grandfather’s needs. Once she passed away, his diet went to the wayside as he relied on neighbors, employees and friends to take care of him the first couple years after his death.
He then moved in with my parents and he had a much better diet (more closely resembling a traditional diet) and consumed more traditional fats and less industrial oils. He also began to walk less, use his scooter chair all the time and eat a lot of starches and junk food (My brother and some of his caretakers unfortunately enable him by buying potato chips and other junk food – not the healthy kind! I keep telling them, at least buy potato chips with healthy oils like coconut or avocado oil. So frustrating). Back to the CBD oil.
My parents remember a time when my grandfather said he could not move his hands to grab his walker or he could not feed himself under their care. After taking the CBD oil, he was moving around much better, which is great! He did not need as much help being fed or walking.
They sacrifice a lot caring for him and are happy to do so, but it does take a lot out of them. If he can be a little more independent, my parents are willing to find a way. Knowing how CBD oil has helped my grandfather, they want to make sure he is getting it on a daily basis!
My husband experienced a little more energy during the day while taking CBD oil. He described it as a more sustained energy high. It was like getting energy from drinking coffee, but without the side effects of a crash and having to use the bathroom.

Purium’s CBD+ Oil is derived from the biomass and flowers of the hemp plant. The oil is CO2 extracted, which is important because the alternative is using toxic solvents. Using CO2 extraction is the cleanest, safest method.
Their lab tests are online (great transparency). The CBD oil does not come from China. It is a combination of full spectrum oil and isolate.
Purium has a disclaimer on their site if you have to take a drug test, do not take this oil. This is to protect themselves, of course. Their THC is under the .3% federal legal limit. However, the THC amount is so low that it should not trigger a false positive on a drug test, at least a high quality one.

There are some ordering issues specifically for Purium’s CBD oil. Their site was flagged for no real reason, but Purium has a workaround. There is an alternate site for ordering CBD oil here. If you also want to order other products, you have to order from their regular site. Because of the inconvenience, Purium is offering FREE shipping for their CBD oil.
