Talking to Your Loved Ones About CBD
When we are excited about something, we want to share it with our loved ones, right? Unfortunately, introducing CBD to your loved ones is not always an easy task. Due to its affiliation with THC, and cannabis in general, CBD is often disregarded. When talking to your loved ones about CBD there are many key points to explain. Touching on these points will help you to educate your loved ones about CBD and its many benefits.
1.) CBD is Not THC
While CBD and THC are both cannabinoids, they are not the same thing. One a chemical level, the molecules are structured very differently. When consuming CBD, you will not feel any psychoactive effects. This is in contrast to THC, which is the cannabinoid in cannabis that actually makes people “feel high.”
Unlike THC which directly binds to the CB1 receptor, which is shown to make you high, CBD does not.
2.) CBD Comes From Hemp
Hemp is cannabis, without the high levels of THC. Under Federal regulations, hemp contains 0.3% or less of THC.
It’s important to note that these days, as cannabis legislation continues to spread across the United States, that cannabis is bred to have extremely high levels of THC.
Hemp has incredibly high levels of CBD and federally-mandated low-levels of THC. Rest assured, CBD is not psychoactive. At Infinite CBD, our CBD Isolate is incredibly pure, and our lab-tests show no presence of THC in our products.
3.) CBD Works With Your Endocannabinoid System
Few people know that humans have an endocannabinoid system. At times, convincing your loved ones of this can be difficult. For your skeptical loved ones, feel free to mention their CB1 and CB2 receptors. These receptors, located throughout the nervous and immune systems, the brain, and in many vital organs, respond specifically to cannabinoids. The endocannabinoid system influences things like mood, immune and inflammatory responses, appetite, sleep patterns, and even hormone levels. CBD interacts specifically with these receptors to help to maintain homeostasis, or balance, throughout the body.
4.) CBD is Well-Studied and Has Many Benefits
Contrary to popular belief, CBD is incredibly well-studied. It’s so well-researched that many US-based corporations are investing in CBD research.
In studies, CBD has been found to act as an anti-inflammatory, help to manage epileptic seizures, impact appetite, help to relieve skin conditions, and effect and help to manage many other diseases and illnesses.
If your loved ones aren’t convinced, point them to the extensive amount of research regarding CBD. That will help.
5.) There’s a CBD Product for Everyone
