Debunking Your Negative Thoughts around CBD
If you are keeping up with the world’s most recent trends you’ve probably heard the word “CBD” buzzing around. CBD is the hottest health trend at the moment – you’ll find it in coffee shops, beauty parlors, people are now even adding it to cocktails! So what is it exactly?
CBD is a super plant with the power to heal, de-stress, repair, and restore your body! it interacts with our body through the endocannabinoid system which monitors everything from sleep to stress.
Now you might be thinking, doesn’t CBD come from the marijuana plant – isn’t it going to make me high?! Contrary to what many believe – CBD is NOT pot, while it comes from the same plant it’s missing the cannabinoid THC, the component that makes you high. With CBD you get enjoy all the benefits of this wonderful plant without the “stoned” feeling.
