Five Things People Don’t Know About CBD

October 6, 2017 9:10 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

These days, it’s not uncommon to meet a cannabidiol (CBD) evangelist, particularly if you’re a frequent visitor of smoke shops in Scottsdale, AZ. And you know what? It’s for good reason!

CBD is amazing, and totally misunderstood. We don’t have to tell you that basically everything to do with marijuana––and we mean everything––is unfairly stigmatized. And because of CBD’s association with “lazy stoners,” a lot of people who could be reaping its benefits are instead missing out, and are therefore experiencing unnecessary pain and anxiety.

CBD does not get you high!

We like to emphasize this one, because we know that this is really the biggest concern most people have about anything derived from marijuana, especially if it is purported to have therapeutic or pharmaceutical usefulness. So, we’ll say it again: CBD does not get you high. Because of this, you can get many of the positive benefits of cannabis without the slightest amount of intoxication.

CBD provides a variety of health benefits

Shall we list the ways that CBD can benefit your health and help you live a better life? Oh yes, we shall:

  • CBD reduces anxiety: CBD has been shown to reduce anxiety in people suffering from panic disorders and post-traumatic stress. It can also be used by otherwise healthy people to reduce the anxiety of certain predictable stressors, such as public speaking or performing.
  • CBD is anti-carcinogenic: CBD and several other cannabinoids have been found to have anti-tumor and anti-carcinogenic effects––both stop existing tumors from growing, and keeping new tumors from forming.
  • CBD is a great treatment for epilepsy: In fact, its effectiveness in treating epilepsy is where much of the enthusiasm for CBD comes from in the first place. CBD has a strong relaxing effect on epileptics as well as people with nervous tremors, such as those suffering from Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. Obviously, CBD should not replace your prescription medication, but it can help.

CBD is less likely to be a controlled substance

CBD is unfortunately not totally legal in all 50 states, but it is legal in more states than marijuana. Also, because CBD is not psychoactive or intoxicating, where it is legal, it is generally less strictly controlled than other cannabis products, and is therefore much easier to find, as it can be sold at a wider variety of retailers.

Even people who hate marijuana see the benefits of CBD

CBD really is widely viewed as something of a wonder drug. Even people who see marijuana as one of the scourges of society can see and acknowledge the benefits of CBD. With its anticancer, anti-inflammation, anti-nausea and antibacterial properties, it’s hard to deny its potential therapeutic uses.

CBD comes in many forms

There are CBD pills, creams, oils, smokeables and more––which gives you greater control over your pain treatment. If you’re having joint pain, you can apply cream directly to the ache. If you have chronic pain, you can simply add a new pill to your regimen. And if you are only using it occasionally, you can take it in whatever form you please.
