Benefits of Black Seed Oil and CBD
Can black seed oil make CBD better?
We certainly think so! That’s why black seed oil is part of the foundation of our flagship Doses – Flex, O.G., and Chill – and why it’s going to play a big role in our new skincare line (launching December 2020!). It has been revered for centuries as a cure for “everything except death”.
What are the benefits of black seed oil?
Black seed oil, derived from the Nigella Sativa plant, has a wide array of benefits for both internal and external use. The primary uses of black seed oil include fighting bacteria and damaging free radicals, providing immune support and relief from pain and inflammation while promoting optimal gut and liver health.
Results of various studies have demonstrated that black seed oil and its active ingredients, specifically thymoquinone, possess pain relieving and anti-inflammatory effects, supporting the common folk uses and anecdotal evidence for Nigella Sativa. “Many protective properties are attributed to reproducible radical scavenging activity as well as an interaction with numerous molecular targets involved in inflammation, including pro-inflammatory enzymes and cytokines”
Why combine black seed oil with CBD?
Black seed oil carries a lot of the same beneficial properties as CBD. Cannabidiol (CBD) has gained wild popularity over the past couple of years due to its ability to provide natural support for common ailments like pain and anxiety. Cannabinoids, like CBD, have been patented by the US government for their antioxidant effect. Like black seed oil, CBD interacts with many different targets throughout the body in order to accomplish an array of effects, especially when it comes to immune function, inflammation and overall feelings of wellbeing.
When you combine the two, they are able to double down on each other’s effects. Black seed oil is able to enhance the “neck down” effects of CBD. In other words, it helps to carry out the physical benefits of CBD in a more integrative, consistent and effective way.
