CBD is one of those undiscussed topics in the cannabis industry. If you’re wondering why that is, simply put, marketing restrictions. It’s almost impossible for CBD brands to market on popular social media channels like Instagram or TikTok due to community guidelines rules set by the parent companies. Even Google and YouTube (our biggest search engines) restrict it because of its association with cannabis. Since CBD still falls in the same category as cannabis, it gets treated the same. However, the differences couldn’t be more massive! In this blog, let’s answer those CBD FAQs and find out if CBD would be a good fit for you!
Does CBD get you high?
No it does not. CBD is just one of many cannabinoids that live in the cannabis and hemp plant. THC is the cannabinoid associated with getting high (aka the psychoactive ingredient) while CBD does not reflect this psychoactive nature. True CBD isolate should never get you high. However, broad-spectrum and full spectrum CBD can still have traces of THC in them. To legally sell CBD, the THC content must be (at a maximum) 0.03 %. This is a very minuscule portion of THC within any broad and full spectrum CBD product and you should not feel the effects of it.
How does CBD make you feel?
CBD is the calming and relaxing agent. I like to tell people CBD feels like a glass of wine, without ever getting drunk. It should give your body relaxing effects, warm and wavy! You should feel more calm and focused, and ready to accomplish anything!
Does CBD help with nausea?
In my experience, this is the BEST natural treatment for nausea and headaches. Smoking is one of the fastest ways to administer CBD and feel its effects. A CBD oil pen or CBD flower can quickly reduce symptoms of nausea and headaches.
Does CBD help with anxiety or depression?
In my experience, yes it does! CBD is particularly magical for decreasing daily stress. When I have less stress, I get more done, and stay focused, which helps me be less depressed. On a busy day, sometimes the best medicine is CBD! It helps me slow down, stay present, listen to my body, and continue to accomplish my work.
What CBD is best for dogs?
If you’re looking for a product for your dog, try finding a CBD tincture or a CBD treat (edible). A CBD tincture (oil) is great because there’s no added sugar or chemicals. This could be easily added to a dog‘s food and will be essentially tasteless. CBD treats can be found on websites like Just CBD, which can help you get started with adequate dosage information.
What are the benefits of CBD?
The three main benefits of CBD are pain reduction, anxiety reduction, and better sleep. CBD is a powerful and natural way to help any of those problems. It’s worth it to try a plant first before turning to alternate solutions!
What are the downsides to CBD?
The only true downside of CBD that I’ve seen is the fact that CBD gets processed in our bodies through our liver. Similar to most drugs and alcohol, the best recommendation to avoid any downside of your CBD use, is to simply drink plenty of water.
Will CBD show up in a drug test?
The best answer to this question is probably not. As mentioned before, CBD products could have very small traces of THC in them. Technically, it’s possible if you use broad or full spectrum CBD a lot and regularly, very small traces of THC could show up in a drug test. Fortunately if you use CBD isolate, there would be almost no possibility of THC showing up in a drug test. All in all, CBD usage should not impact a drug test pass.
As mentioned above, there are still large limitations on the abilities of CBD companies to truly market and share information about their products. So as consumers and users of these products, we have to do our due diligence to ensure the products that we are using are safe.
Always make sure to check for lab testing on CBD websites and be sure to review the quality of products before purchasing.
