What is CBD For?

CBD is still a new market, with a lot of unknown variables. But ever since the FDA passed the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (also known as the Farm Bill), legalizing CBD derived from hemp, a lot more research is being done on what CBD is actually used for

CBD works with your own endocannabinoid system. It acts like a master regulator for your body to keep it in balance,  and taking it on a daily basis helps to create or maintain homeostasis. However, every person’s system is different and so CBD benefits vary from individual to individual.


People have used it to help with pain and inflammation, anxiety, and even as an aid to wean off prescription medications. The important thing to remember is that CBD works with your body, not against it. Don’t think of it like extra strength ibuprofen you take for a headache. Rather, think of it like the calming tea you drink to relax or the vitamins you take for optimal health.

While long-term studies are still underway, a lot of information has been gathered from individual testimony on the ways CBD can help certain issues. After all, it is a multibillion dollar industry for a reason.


“The thing that most appealed to me was that it could be an effective anti inflammatory…. I bike 30 to 50k a day and I wake up without soreness every morning,” one athlete said. 

“I have steel rods in my back and after using CBD for several months, I have weaned myself off opioids,” said another.

Individuals have noticed quicker recovery when implementing CBD oil as part of their daily regimen, as the pain from intense physical activity or discomfort fades.

One proponent of CBD said, “I even rub some CBD oil on my shoulders before bed and the knots are gone in the morning.”



Many use CBD oil for better sleep. “I’ve had trouble sleeping through the night for years but I’m no fan of prescription meds or over the counter sleep aids. I take a bit of CBD oil about thirty minutes before retiring. I fall asleep in 5 minutes now….and when I wake up, I am ready to go.” 


CBD oil can even be used for skin treatment, “I take a quarter of a dropper under my tongue each morning and each night. I put a little oil in my palm and smooth it over my face. I swear my complexion looks better than it has in years.” 


I’ve suffered for years from arthritis in my hands. I rub the oil onto my knuckles at night and by the next morning I’m ready for action.” 

Rational Hemp Full Spectrum CBD Oil is a pesticide-free product (view COA here) delivering all the benefits of the hemp plant, including the terpenes and phytocannabinoids. The key takeaway is that it’s not one size fits all. Dosage and benefits all depend on the individual. But even if you don’t have any underlying aches or ailments, CBD is good for overall wellbeing because it helps your system find homeostasis.

“I wasn’t sick. I didn’t have any specific aches and pains. But…I just feel better. All around healthier, more in balance.”

You should always talk to you doctor if you are taking supplements or prescription meds or have health conditions etc.
