CBD oil has been in the news, on billboards, and online everywhere you look these days. Unless you’ve been living in a dark hole, it’s hard to miss. If you don’t know what it is, it’s an oil derived from the marijuana “hemp” plant. Baby Boomers are well familiar with pot but are now using CBD oil to relieve pain, reduce stress, side effects of cancer treatments, heart health and even to get rid of acne.
Note – 9/11/2019 – I’ve never been a fan of vaping and am not promoting vape products, even though some of the resources below may sell them. Please see this health warning by ABC News.
It’s one of 104 chemical compounds that come from the marijuana plant. (Cannabis sativa) The compound is extracted and then diluted using a carrier oil like coconut or hemp seed. CBD oil won’t make you high because it doesn’t contain THC which is another cannabinoid compound.
Several years ago, I bought a bottle of CBD oil at a conference after a speaker touted its benefits. You’re supposed to put it under your tongue using a dropper. I tried it, but it tasted just like pot and was awful. I was never into pot even in the 70s and was turned off.
CBD oil has been refined and improved greatly since then and I had the opportunity to try a few samples that you may be interested in knowing about.

A rep from Aeroflow Healthcare sent me a sample of Kingdom Harvest Peppermint CBD oil. It’s formulated with a combination of extracts from the hemp plant. The plants are grown at the Kingdom of Happy Land in Western North Carolina. Don’t you love that name? It makes me want to move there.
The product’s ingredients are fractionated coconut oil (MCT oil), whole-spectrum hemp extract, peppermint oil, and natural vitamin E.
The recommended dose is 0.25 ml, taken under your tongue twice daily using a dropper. Hold it for 30-60 seconds and then swallow. They suggest you try just a little at first to see how you react and then gradually increase the dose to 0.25 ml. If you tolerate it well, you can add one additional serving over time.
The taste is pleasant and easy to take. It doesn’t have a “pot” taste like the first CBD oil I tried. After a few minutes, I had a peaceful, easy feeling.
Kingdom Harvest also sells edibles, CBD oil for pets, coffee infused with CBD, chocolate, smoking buds, accessories, and clothing items with their Hemp Logo.
