Three Possible Benefits of Using CBD

Hemp and hemp-derived products have been federally legal to sell in the United States for almost a whole year now. As a result, it seems like cannabidiol (CBD), hemp, and hemp products are starting to come up in more and more conversations. At Rocky Ridge Hemp Co., we feel that it is important to ensure that you are educated on CBD and hemp products.

For that reason, today’s blog will cover three of the possible benefits associated with using CBD. Read on to learn more about these possible benefits, and if you are still unsure about what CBD is and how it is different than tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), then check out our blog post on the subject. Remember that Rocky Ridge Hemp Co. has a plethora of hemp-derived products, including hemp extract oil, for sale on our site! All of our products come from hemp grown on our USDA-certified organic farm in Kentucky.


The first thing most people think of when they discuss CBD is the potential to use it for pain relief. Many people have found that CBD products—whether they come in the form of oils, salves, or edibles—ease their chronic pain and help them through their daily activities. Some studies have even found CBD to be more effective for treating certain cases of pain than other treatment methods.

For many people, the potential for pain relief is the main reason they try CBD. Whether you work at a physically demanding job, suffer chronic pain from a former injury, or have pain that does not respond well to typical methods of relief, you may find it beneficial to try hemp-derived products. Most people do not realize that their bodies have an endocannabinoid system, which plays a role in the regulation of pain. CBD interacts with that system and has the potential to decrease your pain or even help you feel pain free!


While pain relief is the potential benefit most commonly associated with the use of CBD products, the possibility of reduced anxiety is another reason people commonly use CBD. The previously mentioned endocannabinoid system in the human body also plays a role in stress management. As a result, CBD products offer a possible solution for people that suffer from anxiety.

According to the Harvard Health Blog, “CBD is commonly used to address anxiety, and for patients who suffer through the misery of insomnia, studies suggest that CBD may help with both falling asleep and staying asleep.” You may find it surprising that the CBD has the potential to make a positive difference in your mental health as well as your physical health. That said, CBD is a naturally-derived chemical compound that people find uniquely capable of having an extremely positive impact on the way they function.


As we have previously discussed in our blog, the United States is struggling with an opioid epidemic. In years past, opioids have been used in the U.S. to treat chronic pain, pain after surgeries, and other forms of suffering. Unfortunately, opioids are extremely addictive and can be dangerous.

Luckily, CBD has the potential to help our country through this epidemic and assist us in overcoming our problematic opioid habits. As we previously mentioned, many people find CBD to be an effective form of pain relief which minimizes the need to use opioids. Moreover, a study from the World Health Organization states that CBD has not been found to be addictive. The combination of these facts makes CBD an excellent choice for those who wish to avoid using potentially addictive or dangerous painkillers.

Whether you use CBD as a way to get more sleep, reduce your stress, or battle enduring pain, Rocky Ridge Hemp Co. has the hemp-derived products you need to succeed. All of the hemp used in our products is grown on our organic Kentucky farm, and we are proud to contribute to Kentucky’s long history of growing hemp.
