CBD is one of many compounds, known as cannabinoids, in the cannabis plant. CBD oils are oils that contain concentrations of CBD. Most people associate CBD with marijuana. Marijuana contains both THC and CBD, but these compounds have different effects. THC creates the “high” when people smoke it or use it in cooking. CBD does not produce these psychoactive effects. CBD may also be extracted from large quantities of hemp.
CBD produces many effects through multiple molecular pathways. Scientific literature has identified more than 65 molecular targets of CBD.
What is CBD oil?
**Note** The effects described below are primarily based on daily doses of hundreds of milligrams of CBD. Many CBD products on the market contain much lower amounts (providing tens of milligrams or less per day). It is not known if these lower doses are as effective as higher doses.
Many people think of the negative effects when they hear the word “marijuana”. However, marijuana is made up of two main components, CBD and THC. Unlike THC, research has shown that CBD has many beneficial effects when dealing with seizures, anxiety, and more. Here are the ways in which CBD can be useful when treating various medical issues.
CBD is broken down by a receptor that breaks down many different types of therapeutic medications. Therefore, CBD may increase the blood concentration of certain medications such as macrolides, calcium channel blockers, benzodiazepines, cyclosporine, sildenafil, antihistamines, haloperidol, antiretrovirals, and some statins. It is imperative you consult with your doctor before trying any CBD products.

Cannabidiol (CBD) has become a popular alternative to prescription drugs. It is also the number one selling herbal supplement ingredient in 2019, topping turmeric, elderberry and wheatgrass. With the number of successful cases in treating joint and inflammation-related concerns, restlessness and anxiety increasing by the second, it comes of no surprise that one’s curiosity about CBD-rich cannabis oil will have been stimulated. But, here’s the thing, not all products are what they claim to be nor are they created equally.
“So unless a friend of yours is using it with success or you can look on their label and see very precise information about what’s in it, you should be worried that it’s not made by a reputable person.” […] “Get as little as you can. Try it and see if it works. If it doesn’t, move on. If it does, keep going.”
CBD Product Scams Claiming to Be Featured on Doctor Oz and Dr. Phil Are on the Rise: Here’s What to Know
Then, consumers need to start questioning what they’ve come across. Most scams claim that their source of hemp has either been organically grown or made in the U.S. This is a preferred and common statement used because the country is known for strict regulations. That said, if the same product doesn’t give an ingredients list, a breakdown of the cannabinoids used or even the concentration level of CBD per bottle, this could be a potential scam. Nearly all of the biggest and most popular CBD companies in the US list their products testing analysis and lab results front and center for all to see as they are ‘proud’ and know it is a ‘best practices’ move to make to ensure quality control measures and user confidence.
Neither Dr. Phil nor Dr. Oz have anything to do with the CBD infused products. Not cannabidiol oil, gummies, drinks, skincare or pills. Both parties have either spoken of CBD or cannabis on their respective shows, but both have remained neutral on its uses.
Unfortunately, this is the case with the CBD industry just like any other popularly trending niche within the multi-billion dollar dietary supplement industry. When a good or service makes it to the spotlight, there will be some bad players who use it to their advantage only to make gains. That said, some are easy to catch, but others, not so much.
