As America continues to wage its disastrous war on drugs, the question of whether or not a human being living in a supposedly free society has the right to consume plants of their choice continues to be argued in every state in the nation.
However, after decades and decades of fighting for the most basic rights, Americans (at least at the state level) are now able to access CBD. Still, tragic ignorance on the part of government, especially law enforcement, as well as the general public has resulted in many Americans still being unable to access the medicine they desperately need if that medicine is or is derived from a virtually harmless plant.
That ignorance stems from nearly a hundred years of horrific propaganda drilled into the minds of American citizens every day. As a result, many Americans cannot distinguish between CBD and THC, much less understand just how CBD benefits health, the difference in CBD products, or how to consume it.
What’s It Good For?
Because of the disastrous war on drugs, research into the benefits of CBD has not taken off to the levels necessary to fully understand the potential this substances holds for healing. However, just a few benefits of CBD are that it can:
- Improve the symptoms of schizophrenia
- Fight cancer
- Reduce anxiety and depression
- Relieve pain
- Reduces risk of diabetes
- Act as an acne treatment
- Helps treat and reduce seizures and other neurological disorders
- Helps reduce nausea
- Helps reduce the symptoms of multiple sclerosis
- What’s the Best Form of CBD
CBD is like any other supplement or product – talk to 100 different people and you’ll 80 different answers as to the best product, best dosage, and best delivery mechanism. Ultimately, you’ll have to do your own research and combine that with experience to determine the best amount, delivery, and product that works for you.
Some questions you can ask regarding your hemp CBD products are:
- 1.) Where was the hemp grown?
- 2.) What extraction process was used?
- 3.) Was the product 3rd-party tested in a lab for contaminants?
- 4.) Is it an isolate or a full spectrum product? (this will depend on what you are using it for and your own preferences)
- 5.) What is the dosage (in mgs)?
- 6.) What is the price?
- 7.) Is it a reputable brand?
- 8.) Has the company added unnecessary ingredients (beyond those to mitigate taste, etc.)?
There are a number of ways to get CBD into your system, the most popular being liquid tinctures, gummies (edibles) or vaping. The latter often involves toxic chemicals inherent to the process of vaping and, while it undeniably looks cool and is probably more fun, there are definitely side effects to the process.
Tinctures are great also and are virtually the same as any herbal remedy bought in liquid form from the local health store.
CBD gummies are also incredibly popular because they can contain any type of CBD product without the vape oil yet are more discreet and easy to carry around than the tincture form.
Candy chews and CBD brownies are other forms of ingesting CBD though vaping, tinctures, and gummies are undoubtedly the most popular.
Despite fanatics in the US government who would like to go back to the days when even CBD would result in raids, arrests, and jail, the CBD cat is out of the bag and millions of people have learned what a crock the war on drugs, at least in regards to this substance, has been.
