There has been lots of talk about CBD and how it can help with some illness and medical conditions. So, what’s all the fuss about and does it really work? And what’s the best product to use?
Cannabidiol (CBD) and Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are the two main components in the cannabis plant. Typically, these are taken together when the user smokes or ingests marijuana. However, each substance is different and provides users with different experiences and benefits when taken or used separately. CBD taken and used alone can sometimes contain very small amounts of THC.
CBD is the non-psychoactive component, meaning that taking and using it will not alter your perception, so you won’t experience a high from it. Unlike THC, CBD can be used more frequently and is more easily accessible, for medicinal, supplemental, and dietary purposes.
Medicinally, there have been results that show CBD having a positive effect on memory loss, dementia, and alzheimers. On the Dementia Care Center website, they cite a study done by California’s Salk Institute from 2017 saying they found evidence that CBD could help eliminate dementia from patients, and increase connections between brain cells. These results have also been conclusive and proven with studies done by other labs.
While the “how” is not totally clear just yet, it is known that CBD has an effect on how the brain functions. Seemingly, this effect stops or slows the breakdown of chemicals in the brain that are connected to pain, mood, and mental function.
CBD can provide other health benefits as well. These benefits include helping with sleep issues, anxiety, depression, and pain management. Scientists have also proven that CBD is successful in treating epilepsy by reducing seizures.
CBD can be taken and used in a variety of different forms including oils and tinctures, salves, lotions and creams, pills and capsules, patches, gummies and edibles, and inhalation by vaping. Using CBD could be as simple as adding a few drops into your morning coffee to receive the benefits.
Here’s the thing. CBD is way overhyped and the market is now very saturated after being legalized due to the positive results with seizure treatment for epilepsy. Not all CBD products are created equally and with pure, quality ingredients. We’ve done our research, and most household CBD products are weak and made with poor quality providing little to no real benefits. This is where the placebo effect comes in.
So, if you’re looking to reap the benefits of CBD, you need to go with a professional company who knows what they're talking about, has done their research, and only carries the highest quality products.
