You’re asking the right questions!
Curious about CBD? We don’t blame you. Here are the answers you’ve been searching for.
What is CBD?
It’s short for cannabidiol, one of the 113 naturally occurring compounds found in both cannabis and hemp plants. Unless otherwise specified, CBD products contain less than 0.2% of the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) compound.
How can CBD help me?
In a number of ways. Studies show CBD can be effective in treating a range of ailments and health issues, including:
- Childhood epilepsy
- Chronic pain
This said, more research needs to be done to understand how CBD can help a larger portion of our population feel better and lead happier lives.
How do I choose the best CBD product for my health?
The answer to this question largely depends on you: your age, weight, genetics, symptoms...the list goes on. To understand which product is the best fit, we recommend starting with a low dosage and working your way up.
Will CBD make me high?
Nope. Unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive. It will still make you feel good, but without the “high” associated with THC.
What happens if I take too much CBD?
Nothing bad. There are no known cases of fatal overdose from CBD, and there’s a very low chance you’ll experience negative side effects. If side effects do occur, they’re limited: in one study, too much CBD led to a few upset stomachs and some fatigue.
