Have you heard the news? Have you seen the ads? Have you tried it? What in the world am I talking about?! CBD. No, it’s not the same thing filling Eric Foreman’s basement in That 70’s Show, and no its not what makes Snoop Dogg… well Snoop Dogg, and no its not the same thing Ross Geller blamed Chandler Bing “forced him” to try. CBD is Marijuana’s cousin. Marijuana’s more health conscious cousin, as a matter of fact, and it’s getting big my friends, BIG. It contains no THC and doesn’t produce the high that is associated with marijuana.
” CBD is an entirely different compound from THC, and its effects are very complex. It is not psychoactive, meaning it does not produce a “high” or change a person’s state of mind, but it influences the body to use its own endocannabinoids more effectively. ” -Medical News Today
So CBD is NOT Marijuana. Which conjures up my title, what is all the hubbub about? Well friends, gather round and let me tell you. It is helping people. Helping their health. Helping their pain. Easing their anxiety and giving them a new lease on life. The how and why can be simplified quiet nicely in a series of articles in Medical News Today:
“The human body has an endocannabinoid system (ECS) that receives and translates signals from cannabinoids. It produces some cannabinoids of its own, which are called endocannabinoids. The ECS helps to regulate functions such as sleep, immune-system responses, and pain. “
Many of us take multivitamins, or drink a cup of EmergenC when someone close to us is ill, but what do we grab when we are in pain? Pills. Something concocted in a lab somewhere, but what if CBD infused coffee (yes, its a thing) helped your joint pain better than Ibuprofen? What if CBD oil helped curb that debilitating anxiety? What if something natural that won’t give you ulcers if you take too many (ME! I have taken too many Excedrin migraine pills and suffered for it) helped you? Science is saying it can and people I love and trust are swearing by it. CBD is about to take the health industry by storm. I have been down the prescription road so many times and CBD oil helps me.
