Frequently Asked Questions

What is CBD?

CBD is short for cannabidiol, and it’s one chemical compound found in the Cannabis sativa plant — in both marijuana and hemp. CBD differs from THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) because it doesn’t cause the intoxicating, euphoric “high” associated with marijuana.

What are some conditions that can be treated with CBD?

CBD oil has been studied for its potential role in easing symptoms of many common health issues, including anxiety, depression, acne and heart disease. For those with cancer, it may even provide a natural alternative for pain and symptom relief.

What health benefits come from using CBD?

CBD is effective at relieving anxiety, depression, pain, inflammation, improving sleep, or has other health benefits.

What are the most common methods of ingesting CBD?

Oral Ingestion: Capsules & Edibles. The most common method of using CBD is to take a product by mouth.

Sublingual: Concentrates, Tinctures & Sprays.

Inhalation: Vaporized, Smoked & Dabbed.

Topical: Lotions, Balms, Salves & Patches.

How CBD Oil Can Help Veterans?

Researchers are finding that CBD may be just as effective as common PTSD medications in supporting a successful recovery from PTSD. Plus, CBD is generally well-tolerated and rarely produces side effects. CBD is also known to suppress nightmares and relieve both mild and severe anxiety.

Does the VA Prescribe CBD Oil?

Unfortunately, because VA clinicians can only prescribe medications that have been approved by the FDA, they cannot currently prescribe CBD. CBD is currently unregulated by the FDA. Although, that may change soon, as the FDA just approved the first drug containing CBD in 2018. CBD is also not covered by Medicare or Social Security benefits.
