What Are The Benefits of Hemp CBD Oil for Veterans?

Veterans Push Legislative Reform for Hemp CBD Oil

For the second time in one month, CBS Morning News reported on CBD oil, only this time, they reported on the benefits of hemp-derived CBD oil for veterans.

CBD oil has been touted as a remedy for veterans and others suffering from PTSD, but the Department of Veterans Affairs won't cover CBD oil as part of its benefits because it is derived from cannabis. Instead veterans have received opioids to deal with their pain. Many veterans don't want to deal with the side effects of opioids and have started to turn to hemp-derived CBD oil as a solution.

The veteran's push for hemp-derived CBD will help spur action to open access to research for CBD oil. In addition, legalization efforts speared by Kentucky Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) should permit the Veterans Affairs Department to offer the remedy without repercussions.

For clarification, CBS Morning News mentions legality issues revolving around hemp-derived CBD oil, but the 2014 Farm Bill legalized domestic production for research purposes defining hemp as "any part of the plant." This includes hemp extracts like CBD oil. Hemp-derived CBD oil is legal; but the Senator McConnell's bill will federally legalize commercial scale production.
