5 Reasons People Take CBD

November 17, 2020

In the wake of CBD’s legalization in 2018, CBD has become a household name. The compound has found a home in several applications, from creams to pills, gummies, and everything between.

The scientific confirmation of CBD’s no-psychoactive nature has further spiked the compound’s user base.

Results from ongoing research may be too lean to make factual claims about CBD’s therapeutic benefits. Yet, many swear by CBD’s high therapeutic potency against a range of health concerns.

Do you wonder how CBD got this large fan base?

Quickly, here are five common reasons why people take CBD.

1. CBD helps alleviate pain

Pain management is arguably one of the most common reasons people take CBD oil.

The world has over 60 million people struggling with a form of pain. Many are running to CBD to avoid the typical adverse effects of conventional pain relievers like opioids.

A significant number of CBD users use the compound for discomforts related to arthritis and joint pain.

Gladly, several anecdotal surveys report effects similar to studies that say CBD may help relieve pain.

2. CBD helps manage anxiety and stress

Here’s another common reason people take CBD oil. Anecdotal reports and research backs CBD as a good deal for social anxiety disorder.  This group of CBD users includes those who seek CBD for calmness, relaxation, and an eventual long doze, particularly after a long day. People with post-traumatic stress disorder also look at CBD’s way for relief from trauma.

3. Muscle recovery

CBD aids muscle recovery. It helps you heal faster, particularly after intensive physical activities, like a workout. Many people, mainly sportspeople, are tapping into CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties for quick muscle recovery between competitions and training sessions. Surprisingly, some of your favorite NFL, NBA, players use CBD to stay in shape.

4. CBD won’t get anybody ‘high.’

Are you yet to try CBD oil because you dread getting ‘high’?

The bad news is; you’ve been missing out a lot; the good news is; CBD will NEVER get you high – regardless of how much you consume.

Sure, that’s another major reason many people ever attempted CBD. Hemp products, CBD inclusive, had been widely stigmatized. This stigma is primarily for the plant’s THC content, which causes the high. With increasing awareness about the compound’s zero-high nature, many people now find CBD safe alternative to several flawed therapeutic prescriptions.

5. CBD is widely legal

Since CBD is safe and widely tolerated, its presence on the scheduled substance list seemed long overdue.

Many jurisdictions have realized this fact and waved off all the legal impediments on the production, sales, and use of the compound. Many will follow suit.

In the US, for instance, CBD is legal under federal laws but illegal across a few state jurisdictions.


Final Notes

CBD is practically everywhere and in everything. But from whence comes its sudden widespread recognition and acceptance?

First, the compound may be used for several health conditions, including pain, stress-related concerns like anxiety, and muscle recovery.

Even more, against long-held misconceptions about hemp and its composition, CBD won’t get you high. Again, the compound is federally legal in the US, Canada, and widespread jurisdictions globally.

Thinking to give CBD a try? Beginning your journey with premium-quality CBD products will make a huge difference.

How Does CBD Affect Our Memory?

December 21, 2020

Cannabidiol (CBD) has been negatively affected by the effects of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This is even true when it comes to memory. THC has been studied for far longer than CBD. As a result, we know how THC negatively affects cognitive functions.

Long term use of THC has been proven to cause the hippocampus to shrink. This is the part of the temporal lobe that is associated with memory. As a result, THC is blamed for people who partake often to have a bad memory.

Short term memory loss is the main culprit caused by extensive use of THC. Studies actually suggest that users who experiment with THC products will not be affected in the long term. Any damage caused will be repaired in a matter of weeks.

Forms of CBD and Extraction Methods

December 18, 2020

Have you ever wondered how CBD is made? No… Well, that’s the essence of today’s piece. In today’s article, we will be talking about the various forms of CBD and the extraction methods of CBD.

You must have come across individuals who consume CBD flowers raw. While it can be very unpleasant, it also doesn’t avail the individual of all the benefits of the plant. You see, for the cannabinoids in cannabis to be effective, they must be decarboxylated (applying heat).

Decarboxylation causes the plant to release all its useful properties and become easily absorbable by the body. Smoking hemp causes it to decarboxylate instantly but what if you don’t like to smoke? That’s where CBD extracts come to the rescue.

Knowing the Difference Between Marijuana and Hemp

December 17, 2020

Marijuana, hemp and cannabis are terms that are often loosely used interchangeably. Without a grounded knowledge on what they mean and how they’re applied, you might make the same mistake many have made when speaking about cannabis and terms under the topic.

While it might seem that they mean the same thing, they are starkly different and can be applied to different purposes.

This is not to spoil the fun but for simplicity, it is the amount of THC content in a cannabis plant that differentiates hemp from marijuana.

Yea! I said it, but there is still more to know to gain a clearer understanding of what they mean and how to use them in conversations. In this article, we would define what each of the term means, their origin and how they differ from each other.
