Every Tom, Dick and Harriet seem to be taking dagga oil (the proper name is ‘CBD oil’) for every ailment under the sun.
CBD oil is extracted from dagga grown from seeds bred to have high levels of CBD (which doesn’t make you high) and low levels of THC (which does).
CBD oil has a seemingly endless list of purported health benefits from treating migraines, stress, low sex drive, lack of appetite, heart conditions and even certain cancers.
It’s used to relieve symptoms of chemotherapy and its anti-inflammatory properties are said to relieve acne.
Epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s are also supposed to respond to treatment with CBD oil while many users claim it helps to lower high blood pressure, risk of stroke, heart attack and metabolic syndrome.

In my experience, there is no risk for the elderly and kids from age two use CBD oil too. However, do check with your doctor if you are using blood-thinning medication such as Warfarin.Cindy van der Merwe, health shop owner
