CBD ~ is it right for you?

Updated: Apr 24



So CBD is the non-psychoactive cannabinoid / chemical in marijuana & hemp.


Non-psychoactive means it WILL NOT get you mentally 'high'.


Where can we find it?


CBD is popping up everywhere: shampoo, drinks, balms, tinctures, oils, creams, gummy worms, and in capsules.


What form is best?


  • The quality of the CBD product depends on how it was extracted, whether it is from hemp, cannabis or is synthetic, and what type of oil it is carried in.


I would opt for CBD naturally occurring in the plant marijuana- since that is a native state.


With this choice however, you will most likely experience a THC high (unless you get a prescribed marijuana), since most marijuana plants contain more THC naturally than CBD.


If you are not much of a toker, then perhaps look for a CBD vape. These are easy on the lungs and very effective- you can get these with no THC and therefore they will not make you 'high', you will however feel relaxed and calm.


Another option is to get a CBD dropper. This is usually an extract from hemp (which naturally contains little to no THC), and suspended in an oil, glycerin or alcohol. I would opt for a liquid MCT, coconut or hemp oil for maximum absorption and nutrition.
