It's used for children with rare epileptic conditions. Though, most of those rare diseases use something other than hemp that's been bred to have an extremely high CBD ratio.
There have been a lot of studies going on with it, and it's been shown to help with inflammation including joints, has shown to be protective of nerves, etc.
It will take more studying, I'm sure, to prove some of the other things that it does vs. hype, but it already has been proven beneficial in the noted areas, and others.
It can be expensive, depending on brand, but it lasts a long time. I got this one because it's cold press derived, and is suspended in olive oil vs. coconut oil. There's nothing wrong with coconut oil, I just can't use it, and it seems silly to handle it all the time if I shouldn't.
But, I do like several other things about them, regardless of that. I like the number of years that they've done this, that they grow their plants here, that their product is cold pressed which preserves some nutrients, that they use 3rd party testing for quality assurance, etc.
I'll send you links when I get up tomorrow. :-)
