You may have heard a lot of talk about CBD, and specifically CBD oils and edibles, lately. This is mainly due to the recent passage of the 2018 Farm Bill that now allows CBD and hemp with less than 0.3% THC to be sold in most states. So what exactly is CBD and why is everyone so excited by it?
CBD stands for cannabinoid and is one of 100 natural chemicals found in hemp. Specifically, when people refer to marijuana, they are often referring to two types of natural chemicals: CBD and THC. THC is the psychoactive part of weed, while CBD is benign in that area; thus allowing CBD and CBD products to be used solely for their various pain and stress relieving effects, without any psychoactive side effects.
One of the main benefits touted by supporters of CBD is that it helps treat pain relief. CBD has been known to help with inflamed sores, joint pain, arthritis, and even multiple sclerosis. CBD works by, according to Healthline.com, “impacting endocannabinoid receptor activity, reducing inflammation and interacting with neurotransmitters,” thus relieving certain common types of pain in the body.
Another huge benefit that gets talked about often is relieving stress and anxiety. It is well known that smoking marijuana can greatly help with stress, anxiety, and public engagement. But for people who don’t smoke or don’t want the – even mild – effects of any THC, CBD oils and edibles offer a great alternative.
Looking to clear your skin up? Sounds out of left field, but believe it or not, CBD has been known to cure acne due to its anti-inflammatory properties. CBD’s natural factor also means that, unlike prescriptions and certain creams, there are not the same types of side effects at play. The only side effects common to CBD at this time are possible Diarrhea, Fatigue, and Changes in Appetite.
