The new buzz word: CBD.
Posted on 15 September 2018
It seems like wherever you go people are talking about CBD.
Seriously, wtf is CBD?
CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is one of the compounds of the cannabis plant. The cannabis plant is most known for creating marijuana and getting high. But there is another cannabis plant called hemp. The difference between marijuana and hemp plants, is that the hemp plant contains less than 3% THC. THC is the compound that is responsible for getting you high. Various strands and hybrids of cannabis plants contain different amounts of CBD and THC.
Medical marijuana often contains high levels of CBD and low levels of THC. This is because research on CBD is showing a healing power. It is showing it can improve anxiety, mood, pain perception, memory, appetite, and sleep.
Laws are rapidly changing on the cannabis plant. Some states allow the purchase and sale of cannabis plant in all its forms. But most states right now are not allowing the sale of the marijuana plant. The good news is CBD extracted from the hemp plant which contains less than 3% is legal in all 50 states.
The biggest this to remember about CBD is it will NOT get you high. Instead, you are likely to feel a more relaxed feeling. And because of that it is safe to drive, work or conduct your daily life.
There are several ways to ingest CBD. CBD oils, CBD edibles, and CBD lotions are the most popular. And depending on the desired effect, we recommend different products. For muscle or joint pain we recommend lotions such as CBD Concentrated Cream For mild anxiety, head aches, stress or mood enhancement try one of the edibles. Such as CBD gummies For more extreme cases of anxiety, depression, or pain we suggest a daily use of CBD oil (coming soon)
How much you should take will depend on your condition, size, gender and metabolism. The average adult will want to take 10MG to 30MG per dose, but everyone is different and more MG or less might be required. I recommend starting small and increasing depending on how you feel. When looking at CBD products read the units carefully. A pack of Hemp Bombs 5 gummies contains 10MG per gummy. So if you eat the whole package you are ingesting 50MG. You can't overdose on CBD, but as anything in life use in moderation.
Research is still in the early stages of CBD but more and more people are taking notice to its healing benefits.
