Cannabidiol oil, better known as CBD oil, has become an increasingly popular form of alternative medicine over the years. The controversy surrounding it persists mainly due to two reasons: the popularity of recreational cannabis in certain subcultures, and the medical community does not acknowledge it as a therapeutic drug. Still, it cannot overrule the fact that numerous people swear by the therapeutic effects of CBD, including the great mind behind Lux No. 9, Moises Nava.
Two compounds commonly come up in conversations on medical marijuana: cannabidiol and tetrahydrocannabinol. Reputable companies in the CBD industry put their best efforts into eliminating THC because it is the primary psychoactive compound of cannabis—simply said, it is what gives the feeling of getting high.
CBD, on the other hand, is an essential component of medical marijuana. Some therapeutic effects users have sworn by include pain relief, reduced anxiety and depression, and alleviation of cancer-related symptoms. These are highly debated, but the impact of CBD oil on the condition of many who use it is undeniable.
Lux No. 9 came to be when a severe car accident Moises Nava was involved in caused the herniation of the central part of the intervertebral discs. This herniation resulted in the compression of the nerves passing through that disc. Consequently, sciatica develops, a condition characterized by pain, tingling, burning, and numbness on areas innervated by the sciatic nerve.
Medical opinions stated that surgery was necessary to repair the injury, but Moises refused to undergo such a high-risk invasive procedure. Instead, he poured his efforts into finding an alternative treatment that could help with his condition. The discovery of CBD oil thanks to an acquaintance brought hope and excitement, but it was short-lived, as he learned that nearly 70% of CBD extracts sold online are mislabeled.
This information came from a study conducted by the University of Pennsylvania, and it can be supported by the fact that CBD oil is poorly regulated. There is a loophole that many hemp-growers take advantage of: an FDA approval is not strictly necessary unless the products claim health benefits.
With this in mind, he dedicated himself to the production of premium-grade CBD oil, which later grew to become Lux No. 9. Hemp is notoriously challenging to grow organically, and not all produced are of high quality. Improperly grown cannabis may even bring adverse effects. Still, the United States has strict guidelines on growing hemp. In conjunction with the company’s rigorous farming standards, there is virtually no THC detected on lab reports on Lux No. 9’s CBD extracts.
Lux No. 9 takes pride in its nanoemulsion technology. Making CBD water-soluble means that the compound becomes increasingly bioavailable, and in effect, it only requires half the dose of CBD oil to achieve the same therapeutic effect.
Today, Moises Nava enjoys long-lasting pain relief with Lux No. 9’s CBD products. He has gone back to his regular day-to-day routine after six months of CBD and physical therapy without surgery. He swears by the company’s products and offers a 30-day guarantee for anyone who might find their products less than satisfactory.
