Levesque Dentistry is committed to providing our patients with leading dental care, including the latest treatment modalities for addressing dental health-related concerns. Dr. Vogel and Dr. Levesque offer CBD oil as an alternative treatment option for a range of concerns related to inflammation, anxiety, and sleep disorders.

CBD Oil for Jaw Pain

Bite problems and temporomandibular disorders, or TMD can cause muscle tension and pain in the jaw joints. Over time, patients can experience difficulty eating and speaking or a “locked jaw” that suddenly becomes difficult to open and close. CBD oil has been shown to reduce inflammation around the jaw joints, allowing the muscles to relax and release tension.

We offer hemp-derived Plus CBD Oil™, an agriculturally based product that provides safe and legal treatment. Plus CBD Oil™ is non-psychotropic, producing no euphoric side effects associated with cannabis.

CBD Oil for Dental Anxiety

CBD oil has become more widely accepted and used in the medical community as a treatment for anxiety, including dental anxiety that may prevent you from maintaining your oral health.

We work with anxious patients on an individual basis to evaluate needs and ensure that they feel comfortable, safe, and relaxed during their dental care in our office. CBD oil can help you to feel calmer and reduce the inflammatory side effects of dental treatments for an improved patient experience.

CBD oil is another tool for helping patients receive the dental care they need, improve outcomes, and providing more comprehensive care for complex problems. Drs. Vogel and Levesque will work with you on an individual basis to identify and address your unique needs that can be managed with an appropriate dose of CBD oil.

10 Health Issues CBD Could Solve

CBD is being touted as a cure-all for, well, all. Pain, anxiety, acne—anecdotal evidence suggests the cannabinoid works wonders for each of those issues and more, and marketers are certainly spreading the hype. But is CBD too good to be true? We decided to put the celebrated compound to the test. Marie Claire editors readily volunteered to try out CBD tinctures, patches, masks, and bath bombs and report back on their results. And then, we got the science. Personal testimonials are nice, but we wanted to be sure rave reviews weren’t just the placebo effect. So, we asked Alex Capano, D.N.P., chief science officer of Ananda Hemp (opens in new tab) , to weigh in with her expertise. Here, 10 possible uses for CBD—and the real deal on whether it works or not.

The Ailment: Anxiety

The Editor Says:

I’ve always thought of CBD as something to be used in the moment—when I couldn’t sleep, when I felt a panic attack coming on— but the directions on Rosebud’s full spectrum CBD oil (opens in new tab) say to ingest 1–2 servings (1 serving = ¼ dropper, or about 17 mg) once or twice a day, like a daily prescription to keep my anxiety continually at bay. Over the last two weeks, I’ve dosed myself once in the morning and once before bed. The oil is unsweetened/unflavored with an earthy, hint-of-cannabis taste, but I found it more pleasant than similar products I’ve tried. This might be in my head, but the oil tastes like it will work—and it did. I felt calmer and more focused at work, but the biggest perk was the effect it had on my sleep: I often wake up hours before my alarm and my anxiety kicks in right away: You’ll never be able to go back to sleep, here’s a long list of all the things you have to do today, oh and did you know your mom’s birthday is coming up? But since I’ve been taking Rosebud, I’ve been able to go back to sleep, often for hours at a time, my anxiety nowhere to be found. I slept until 10 a.m. on a weekend day for the first time in YEARS! The only thing that makes me reluctant to continue using it regularly is the cost: At $125 for a 0.5 oz bottle of the 1,000 mg CBD oil, the habit could get expensive. But I’ve learned that when it comes to CBD, you get what you pay for, and my research tells me that Rosebud’s hemp is sun grown in Oregon without herbicides, pesticides, solvents, fillers, additives, or preservatives, it’s third-party lab tested, and, as I now know, effective—all of which makes it deserving of its price tag. After all, is anything worth splurging on more than a good night’s sleep? —Kayla Webley Adler, Senior Editor

Rosebud 1000 mg CBD Oil

The Expert Says:

There’s limited scientific evidence on CBD’s effects on anxiety in humans, but that doesn’t mean it’s just placebo. One

Still, preclinical and animal models support CBD as a viable therapy for anxiety, and multiple human case studies add to the evidence. Rosebud’s product is full-spectrum, so 17 mg likely packs a more potent punch than isolate CBD due to the entourage effect (the theory that the whole plant extract is more effective than CBD alone). Anxiety is one of the most common reasons people use CBD, and it is certainly safer than many prescription anxiety medications.

The Ailment: Back Pain

The Editor Says:

I was skeptical at first. My usual go-to CBD treatment for my aches is a thick pungent balm—which meant that if I woke up with upper back and shoulder pain from sleeping with a sick child on my arm all night, I had to suffer through the day rather than offend the noses of my office mates and risk getting goo all over my work clothes. But Curaleaf Hemp Transdermal patches (opens in new tab) are paper thin with a subtle scent. Also, their matte, barely-there look means that one would hardly notice a patch peeking out from the top of my dress. And, most importantly, they work. They wouldn’t be effective at relieving soreness or pain along a wide swathe of body, but that’s what a partner massage and my trusty (smelly) CBD balm is for! —Joyce Bautista Ferrari, Managing Editor

Curaleaf CBD Pain-Relief Patch

The Expert Says:

Most of the human studies on CBD and pain focus on chronic pain instead of acute muscle aches, but The Ailment: Knee Pain

The Editor Says:

By the end of almost every day, I have knee pain that’s quite severe, so I was skeptical about a topical CBD salve. But, a few weeks ago, I was limping at the end of a long work day, so I decided to try Dr. Hartridge’s PhytoDiol Max CBD infused salve (opens in new tab) before leaving the office. I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly it dulled the top layer of ache and tightness in my leg.

Dr. Hartridge’s CBD Infused Salve

A little bit went a long way—once the salve warmed on my skin (the texture is gritty until it warms), I rubbed a scoop on my finger about the size of a blueberry in from my knee down to my ankle and foot. Within a minute or two I could feel the difference and was in a little less pain. The smell isn’t unpleasant and is weak enough that I’m not worried about it being smelled by others. I’ve used it every day since, and it has provided quick relief for sudden tightness and aches. The jar is small and light enough to carry with me, which I love. —Megan A. Victoria, Senior Photo Researcher

The Expert Says:

The same thing goes for knee pain and back pain. But if this person has severe knee pain at the end of every day, then a chronic issue, such as arthritis, is likely the culprit. There is scientific evidence in both humans and animals to support CBD’s pain-relieving effects in arthritis. This product also has methyl salicylate in it, which would contribute to the effect.

The Ailment: Skin Issues

The Editor Says:

The Kana Skincare lavender sleep mask (opens in new tab) is an absolute dream. The product itself has a nice fragrance and a delicate feel—it wasn’t too heavy like some masks I’ve used. The instructions say to wear all night, so I substituted it for my regular moisturizer. I have extremely sensitive, acne prone skin, and I was a bit nervous that I might have a reaction. Luckily for me, the mask didn’t cause any inflammation and appeared to be beneficial for my skin. In the morning when I washed it off my face felt softer, and my skin looked brighter. I absolutely loved it, and would highly recommend! —Lauren Brown, Senior Photo Editor
