Have you heard of CBD? If you’re not living under a rock I’m sure you’ve heard about the creams, the oils, the vape, the gummies. CBD is sweeping the nation with a number of products. You ride down the road and there are numerous signs announcing their CBD products. So what does it do? Can it help me? Is there a high? That’s the main questions. CBD can be traced back the 19thcentury when Queen Victoria used CBD-rich cannabis for menstrual cramps. Studies have proven that it can help with pain management, anxiety and reduce the frequency and severity of seizures. News of the help of CBD in children with epilepsy has gained national coverage. Regulations are constantly changing and allowing new CBD products to be more common.
How does it work? CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system of the body. This system can affect your mood, sleep pattern, immune system and even your appetite. Pure CBD does not give you a high or test positive on a drug test because it does not contain THC. However, you need to be careful where and what you buy. Talk with your health care provider about if it can help you and only buy from vendors that offer a pure CBD cream, oil, etc. This is your body and you want to choose the right products along with the correct dosage.
