It seems like everybody is talking about CBD. But what is it? And why has it become so popular so quickly? CBD stands for cannabidiol. Multiple types of cannabinoids can be found in hemp plants. Most of the CBD products that we carry are called full spectrum, meaning that they have multiple cannabinoids, the same ones found in hemp plants. A full spectrum product also has trace amounts of THC (<0.3%), which is the component in marijuana that causes the feeling of being high. The trace amounts of THC in full spectrum products cannot get you high, but it does tend to make the CBD more effective. However, it can show up in a urine drug screen. If this is an issue, we do carry products that are completely THC free.
One of the reasons for CBD’s popularity is that people are finding it can work for a wide variety of different ailments, including pain, arthritis, neuropathy, fibromyalgia, anxiety, migraines, sleep, and tremors associated with Parkinson’s disease. CBD can also help people to decrease their use of opioid pain medications, which in the current environment is a very important benefit.
