It still surprises me that CBD is not more widely known, suggested and talked about yet. The trend started years ago and although your doctor probably wont be the first to jump up and suggest trying it, it’s popularity is spreading among users. The negative stigma that normally comes with CBD is likely why its popularity isn’t sky rocketing – I mean who wouldn’t choose a natural alternative over a man-made medicine if it provided that same relief?

Why subject your body to added chemicals that aren’t necessary for recovery? One major concern for many curious on-lookers is “Will it get me high?” is a major concern for but the reality is CBD products do not (and can not to be legal) contain more than 0.3% THC in the entire product. This amount of THC will not produce any kind of high, but if you are still worried, CBD products are available with zero THC as well. The negative stigma will likely loom over the industry like a dark cloud for a long while even though the benefits continue to stack up.

Although CBD has been shown to be effective in multiple cases and the possibility it could replace big pharma is real, the kicker is that the government owns the patent on the cannabis plant; they claim the cannabis plant has no known medical benefits but also patented the compounds of the plant! I came across an interesting article on the topic that notes “the researchers discovered that non-psychoactive compounds in cannabis may potentially have antioxidant properties that could be beneficial in the treatment of certain neurological diseases…” interesting to say the least.

The popularity of CBD will just increase over time as people realize there is a natural alternative for pain relief, anxiety, depression, anti-inflammatory, anti-spasm relief and much more. It almost seems impossible that a plant naturally occurring in nature can provide us with so many relieving benefits. Understanding the human body and the Endocannabinoid system to helps to see what all the hype is about:
