Hemp CBD Oil COPD: CBD Oil is known for it’s anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic and anti-anxiety properties. Because hemp based CBD oil only has minuscule, trace amounts of THC, it does not produce a ‘high’ like marijuana. CBD Oil can benefit COPD sufferers because it may help to increase bronchodilation, reduce broncospasms and help expectorate phlegm. While a prescription is not needed for hemp based CBD Oil it is recommended that one speak with their healthcare provider before beginning any new supplements.
