Everything You Need to Know About CBD

CBD is a growing topic in the wellness industry and I know it’s become increasingly popular. CBD can help with anxiety, acne, is used for pain relief, helps with sleep, and a lot more. It comes in so many different forms such as gummies, oral drops, skincare, and essential oils so there’s really something for everyone. To be honest, I was a little trepidations when it came to CBD because a lot of the products on the market are not super regulated. However, after talking to Ret Taylor, co-founder of Ned, on a recent podcast, I learned that there are some amazing CBD companies that not only create safe and effective products, but believe in transparency, sustainability and quality as well. So, here’s everything you need to know about CBD including what it is and how it can be used.

What is CBD?

According to Ret Taylor, CBD is a phytocannabinoid produced by the Cannabis sativa L plant. CBD oil is made from hemp plants. Typically, the flowers of Cannabis sativa strains rich in CBD and low in THC are processed to extract cannabinoids and terpenes, diluted with a carrier oil like coconut and turned into CBD oil products.

Does CBD contain THC?

CBD oil made from full spectrum hemp extracts typically have very small amounts of THC (less than 0.3%). This amount of THC is not enough to have intoxicating effects or make you feel high. CBD oil made with a CBD isolate will not contain any THC. When looking for a CBD product, it’s recommended to check the product’s lab analysis for exact THC potency.

What are the effects of CBD?

Research suggests that CBD may be useful for anxiety, pain, sleep, epilepsy, hormonal balance, inflammation, neurological disorders, bacteria and much more. Neuroimaging research shows that CBD may significantly decrease subjective anxiety and increase mental sedation by changing activity of brain regions that normally mediate anxiety. CBD has also been shown to help with depression, acid reflux and nausea.

Can you get a hangover from CBD?

No, CBD should not cause a hangover, especially if you’re using a high quality product. Additionally, CBD is non-toxic and no fatal overdoses have ever been reported.

Who is CBD intended for?

CBD can be beneficial for anyone suffering from stress, anxiety, problems sleeping, pain and a slew of other issues. Our brains have not caught up to our modern day lifestyles – everything moves at a faster pace with technology, social media and this digital age that we’re living in, and our brains have not evolved to accommodate that. Because CBD products are made from hemp plants, it’s a more natural remedy to over-the-counter and prescription drugs.
