Before anything should be mentioned regarding the product, one should first understand that CBD Hemp Oil is not a so-called “miracle cure” of any kind. CBD Hemp Oil is a completely natural product that has great and amazing healing properties, but unfortunately not of Biblical proportions: it won’t let the blind see after only one application of only one drop, or get rid of all your diseases overnight by means of a touch from the bottle containing it.
I simply had to mention that just to let you know that your expectations of the product should be about the same as when you take your chronic medication for high blood pressure. It works, but it will take time. The only difference is that it comes with zero adverse side effects.
That said, please note that certain Cannabinoids contained within Hemp Oil actually do possess the ability able to cure or relieve certain specific diseases of the eyes.
Glaucoma is one such eye disease that can be cured by CBD Oil. The most commonly accepted reason for this is the fact that blood pressure decreases with treated with certain Cannabinoids, and Glaucoma is mainly caused by high blood pressure.
There is a multitude of other diseases and conditions that can be cured or relieved by CBD Oil, as stated in my my cbd oil review.
In the previous post you may read all about various benefits of CBD Hemp Oil as well as a variety of conditions and disorders most commonly treated with CBD Hemp Oil.
Note that this review is not at all about ordinary Hemp Oil, which is extracted from Hemp Seeds. You may read more in the following post: How to make CBD Oil – A Step by Step Guide
My story that led me to CBD
As a young child I have experienced my first epileptic seizure. Those were tough times for me. It began suddenly one day, completely unexpected, and life suddenly went from normal to boiling hot in one single day.
“Stress” became my bed buddy, and everything changed for me from that day forward. My life as a child was transformed from “ordinary childhood” to “waiting for the next epileptic seizure”.
The trigger to my first epileptic seizure was an old TV set that had a low frame rate. The seizure that I have experienced was a so-called Grand Mal Seizure and the reason why it was triggered is known as photo-sensitivity.
Medical establishments became my new regular daily “hang-outs”. After a long period of hospitalization and perpetual visits to the neurologist, I was put on constant medication. The prescription required that I take my meds three times daily over a period of several years.
Meds would have fine if it actually worked, but even with such a high volume of meds the seizures persisted and the meds seemed completely useless to me.
Then one particular day I met a doctor with a different view on meds and on life in general. This doctor unofficially advised me to try Cannabis, because obviously he already knew much about all of the medical benefits that it harbored, including for the treatment of epilepsy. Needless to say, it worked!
It was not the first time that I came into contact with Cannabis. I did have a few occasional encounters with smoking weed before. But from that time onward I gave this wonder-plant a lot more consideration in an attempt to figure out what exactly it was that made the Cannabis so effective in curing epilepsy. Note that there are a great many varieties of Cannabis (called phenotypes) within three distinct groups, i.e. Indica, Sativa and hybrids.
My life was turned around once again. I began to spend spent a great amount of time trying to determine which of these varieties works best.

CBD & THC – Similar but not the same
By way of explaining the difference between various Cannabis types, it would be meaningful to mention that no two Phenotypes of Cannabis has exactly the same properties, combination and/or concentration of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (Cannabidiol). Both of these substances are part of a chemical group known as Cannabinoids.
Let’s just focus for a while on these two Cannabinoids:
The substance that is responsible for Marijuana’s stigmatic past is called THC, which accounts for the single most highest concentration of any substance contained within the Cannabis plant.
THC is the psychoactive substance that provides that pleasant “high” feeling when Cannabis is smoked. It was because of this substance in our favorite herb that Cannabis was outlawed almost one century ago, and it is still because of this substance that Cannabis is still outlawed in most of America and the rest of the world today.
But enough of the stigma, let’s get to the good stuff: while THC has been termed a psychoactive drug, CBD is non-psychoactive. It accounts for the second highest concentration of any substance contained within the Cannabis plant.
In its strongest form this substance will but cause a deep calmness and drowsiness, nothing more than any common headache tablet. And it boasts a great variety of real awesome benefits, such as anti-anxiety properties, anti-cancer properties, anti- schizophrenic with it, and of course anti-epilepsy properties.
Different Cannabis Strains – Cannabinoid ratio & concentration
Both THC and CBD are present in certain Cannabis strains. Generally Cannabis strains within the Indica based group contain a higher concentration of CBD than THC, whereas Cannabis strains within the Sativa based group contain a higher concentration of THC than CBD. Sativa based phenotypes are the more popular type within the circle of users that use Cannabis purely for recreational purposes only.
Ever since that day when the doctor recommended that I use Cannabis for my epilepsy, I have tried many different varieties of Cannabis and I still do. And I have particularly noticed that Cannabis strains with a high concentration of CBD worked best for my epilepsy. I was therefore able to positively state that CBD is the main reason for the fact that Cannabis works for my epilepsy.
The start of my CBD studies
I began reading up a lot and studying a lot on the subject of ingredients found in Cannabis, and the manner in which Cannabis operates. My studies have shown that CBD and CBD-rich Hemp Oil shows a large influence on the clinical picture of epilepsy, and a great variety of other diseases and conditions such as anxiety, depression, skin conditions, high blood pressure, certain psychological conditions such as schizophrenia, and even cancer and other tumors.
The outcome of my Cannabis studies excited me, since this confirmed to me that Cannabis, and in particular this substance known as Cannabidiol contained within the plant, harbors gentle and sustainable healing properties toward many diseases and conditions for which there is no other cure. Speaking from personal experience, I would positively state that Cannabis works well, and in certain cases much better than any other pharmaceutical product than I have ever encountered.
More than that: CBD does not only get rid of the symptoms of the disease, but also treats the cases of the disease.
My personal CBD Oil Review
I can confidently state that ever since I have commenced treatment of my epilepsy with CBD and CBD-rich Hemp oil I have had no seizures at all and almost no Auras, which are pre-signs of epileptic seizures, anymore.
Note that while this may not apply to everyone, it has certainly worked well for me. Based on my particular experience, I am positive that a great many people will benefit from treatment of their diseases or medical conditions with Hemp Oil, especially Hemp Oil that contains CBD.
Many of my friends and a substantial amount of my family members now use CBD Oil as well, and they are all very happy with it. Some of my older friends and family members use CBD rich Hemp Oil to treat psoriasis or rheumatism, and they are making excellent progress with it.

How to Use Hemp Oil with CBD
To commence treatment of any disease with CBD Hemp Oil treatment you may use one drop of the oil under the tongue and hold it there for as long as possible without swallowing.
This is the fastest way for the Cannabidiol to enter into the blood stream and the brain. If you prefer to smoke the CBD rich Hemp Oil by means of your vaporizer you may do that, since this is also a fast and effective way by which to take the CBD into your system.
However, I prefer to make use of the oral way by which you place a drop of the CBD rich Hemp Oil under your tongue, since that way you will experience the greatest benefit from the Amino Acids contained within the Oil.
Take just one drop for your body to get the benefits of CBD in the quickest way possible.
After more or less 3-5 hours you may take the next dosage of CBD rich Hemp Oil (note that the effect the effect lasts for about 3-5 hours in your body) but increase the dosage by one drop to 2 drops.
After another 3-5 hours you may take another dosage, but this time take 3 drops. Once you have reached 3 drops, carry on with this dosage (3 drops), repeating it every 3-5 hours.
There are various products of Hemp Oil available on the market, each containing a different concentration of CBD. Use higher concentrations for more serious diseases, noting that the higher the concentration of CBD in the oil, the more effective it becomes. Also note that the prices will vary according to the concentration.
This was really a mouthful, and I am now leaving you alone to absorb it all, especially if this is your first time learning about CBD rich Hemp Oil. Keep in mind that it is all well and good to read about CBD rich Hemp Oil, and you may consider giving it a try, but the best method of finding out what it can do for you would be to try it for yourself and experience the full benefits of this awesomely beautiful natural product.
