EP 107 - On the Edge: The Role of CBD Oil in Medicine Today
Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is quickly becoming one of the biggest trends in beauty and wellness. Top athletes, celebrities, and doctors are increasingly embracing its anti-anxiety, antioxidant, and pain-relieving properties.

According to Gretchen Lidicker, Health Editor at MindBodyGreen, this non-psychoactive compound of the cannabis plant can benefit the body and skin in a variety of ways.

Consumers have the option from choosing from CBD that has been derived from either marijuana or hemp, both plants that fall under the cannabis umbrella. 

Gretchen has authored CBD Oil: Everyday Secrets: A Lifestyle Guide to Hemp-Derived Health and Wellness in order to help consumers interested in CBD know what to look for in a high-quality product and what to expect before using CBD for the first time.

Listen as Gretchen joins Dr. Taz to share insights from the book, as well as the specific health benefits one might realize from incorporating CBD into daily life.
