Dr. Fred Melius, an OB-GYN out of Madison, Wisconsin has developed a new nasal spray that delivers CBD into the nasal passages. With an application similar to a nasal decongestant, Dr. Melius has managed to take CBD oil and transform it into a mist that can be inhaled through the nose.
For decades, Dr. Melius has delivered babies as part of his practice. However, for the past 20 years he has also developed nasal sprays that help people relieve dry nasal passages when on ski trips on in other very dry conditions. One of his sons suggested that CBD oil delivered through a nasal spray might carry certain benefits. So, Dr. Melius accepted the challenge of transforming CBD oil into something that can be effectively used in a spray form.
How It Works
The nasal spray as developed by Dr. Melius works on the same principle as nasal decongestant sprays. The CBD has been mixed with a substance that allows for the cannabidiol to be absorbed into the blood stream through the sinus cavities. In addition, some of the CBD will be absorbed as it reaches the lungs as well.
Once in the system, the CBD will help to lower anxiety, reduce inflammation, and also take the edge off the pain. The spray avoids the digestive tract which often destroys much CBD that is ingested. In addition, the spray does not have the unpleasant taste of many CBD oil products. But that is not the only advantage.
The nasal spray can be taken with you and used in all places where CBD has been approved. This means that you can take it with you when traveling or keeping an extra supply in a convenient place. For many, the CBD spray has solved certain issues that other forms of CBD possess.
Getting the approval of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is still in the works. This is because so far, the FDA has only approved CBD for the treatment of two types of epilepsy. But what can be said is that Dr. Melius has created a nasal spray that only uses FDA-approved compounds. This means that while the purpose of the CBD does fall outside its approved treatments, the substances themselves have been approved.
For those who are considering using the product, it should be noted that full FDA approval may take some time. But then again, the contents of the product have been demonstrated to be safe when used in the proper dosage. This means that with few exceptions, most people who take CBD to treat anxiety for example should not experience any unwanted side effects.
The work of Dr. Melius as an OB-GYN has been well-respected for many years in the Madison area. But he may be remembered by people outside of Wisconsin for his work in developing a nasal spray that delivers CBD oil without unwanted side effects. When used like a nasal decongestant, those who want a simple, effective means of using CBD oil can try his remarkable nasal spray product.
