Highlighting the Hype Around CBD

Is it worth the hype?

CBD oil is being recommended for all sorts of ailments left and right, but what is it exactly and is it right for you?

What is it?

CBD, or cannabidiol is a component found in the flower of cannabis. Yes, it’s an ingredient in weed. No, it doesn’t get you high.

The high from weed comes from THC, or tetrahyrocannabinol. The occasional paranoia some experience with marijuana often comes from the strain containing too high a concentration of THC. CBD actually counters those effects and is non-intoxicating.

Uses & Risks

CBD helps with countless conditions inside and out. According to Project CBD, here are just a few:

  • Inflammation, Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Alzheimer’s, Epilepsy, Stroke
  • Diabetes, Obesity
  • ADHD, PTSD
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Acne, Psoriasis

Just as anything else, CBD can produce some side effects in certain individuals. It’s mostly considered safe but may cause: diarrhea, changes in appetite, and/or fatigue.

Additionally, always ensure you consult a medical professional to confirm CBD is safe for you to take and that it doesn’t interfere with any¬† of your medications.
