CBD, otherwise known as cannabinol, is the stuff that has taken the world by storm. With CBD appearing in stores, news, and media, it’s clear people have a profound interest in it.
The demand for CBD has risen due to people wanting natural remedies as opposed to harmful pharmaceutical medications with numerous potential side effects. CBD has been said to help with an array of medical ailments and conditions such as stress, anxiety, depression, PTSD, arthritis, general pain, and much more.
CBD has been identified as one of the properties inside of cannabis that contains many health and wellness benefits, yet without the “high.” The “high” from cannabis is produced by a chemical compound called, THC, also known as tetrahydrocannabinol.
This is why products containing CBD derived from hemp is legal in all states. The THC amount found in hemp-based products is 0.3 percent or less, not enough to get you “stoned.” Making it an ideal supplement for users looking to receive health and wellness benefits, without any mind-altering side effects.
Since opening our doors as a CBD Dispensary in Savannah, Asheville, and San Antonio, we have found an overwhelming amount of support for CBD hemp products. People ranging from all different ages and backgrounds are either interested in CBD, have heard about it and tried it, or are repeat users.
We hear things like CBD has helped people with pain associated with hard labor due from their jobs, reduced their dependence to stronger and more harmful medications, and improved their daily lives tremendously.
These testimonials have provided us with great insight onto how CBD has truly affected and changed people’s lives for the better.
Why is CBD Everywhere?
Since CBD derived from hemp rather than marijuana contains almost no THC, CBD hemp-based products are legal in all 50 states. Marijuana plants can contain THC amounts upwards of 20 percent (that’s a lot), making it CBD products derived from marijuana illegal.
Just to put this into perspective, marijuana THC levels in the 1970s were around 1 percent. You do the math.
Brand Reputation is Key
With the cannabis industry resembling the likes of the wild west during the cowboy era, picking the right brands is essential. One of the issues facing the CBD industry is regulation. Due to the fast-paced nature of the industry, products are being introduced to the market without the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) being able to keep up. The regulation problem has led to some CBD products on the market not actually contain the ingredients listed on the labels. Unfortunately, people learn the hard way by finding out after it’s too late and they’ve already consumed the product.
Not to mention, sometimes sourced CBD for certain products is low-quality, containing harmful containments. So, the next time you pick a CBD product, do your homework, it’s worth it!
