Introduction to CBD
Updated: Apr 7, 2019
Your personal experience trumps what anyone else says!
Welcome everyone. A quick overview of the many different routes you can take to find what CBD means to you.
CBD is hot topic, so finding reliable information is difficult. Here is a little insight on the new age of "Cannabidiol".
While working in the Cannabis industry you get asked about all sorts of things. "How much should I take/ smoke?" "How much money do dispensaries make?" "Is it legal to fly with marijuana? “ etc, etc.. but in the last year or so all attention has been turned towards CBD.
CBD or "Cannabidiol" is a Phytocannabinoid, which means it occurs naturally in Cannabis. Even though it was discovered in 1940 we still don't have a lot of research on it. This begs the question, without any scientific "proof", how can we know what dosage and what kind of CBD will work best for me? The short and simple answer is personal experience, or trial and error. Friend/family recommendations can help, but we are all completely different, so what might work for Suzy, won’t necessarily work for Joey, catch my drift? I want you to understand one thing more than anything else, and this goes for not just CBD but life in general... YOUR PERSONAL EXPERIENCE TRUMPS WHATEVER ANYONE ELSE SAYS... was it real for you? Did it work for you? That's what truly matters.
There can be an apprehension in trying CBD for the first time, especially if you're part of a generation where marijuana and hemp were thought of as the same exact plant (it’s not by the way, similar yes, it’s from the same Cannabis family, but still completely different). But with more information readily available than ever before, anyone can clearly see the medical/wellness benefits of Cannabis (Can describe marijuana or hemp). Use any search engine for "Cannabis cure" and you will find a plethora of stories about Cannabis curing all sorts of ailments or improving quality of life in general!
CBD is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid, so you can feel safe taking it before any and all life situations. There are some research suggesting that it will nullify some of the intoxicating effects of THC, the main intoxicant in marijuana, resulting in a more balanced and relaxed experience. My personal experience leads me to believe that full spectrum CBD is most effective, it means that during the extraction process of the Hemp all of the compounds of the plant were extracted, not just the CBD by itself. I have tried a ton of CBD-isolate products and Full-spectrum... I can honestly say I've never felt any good or bad effect from a CBD-isolate... but depending on the brand/ quality of Full-Spectrum CBD, I've noticed an improvement in joints, muscle fatigue, inflammation reduction, clear head, relaxed awareness.
