HOW CBD WILL HELP YOU LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE

People have been using hemp products for thousands of years, so what’s all the buzz about CBD? Cannabidiol, or CBD, is derived from hemp and has a vast amount of medicinal benefits. It fights inflammation, calms anxiety, promotes relaxation, and so much more!

Up until recently, the cannabinoid was classified as a Schule I drug, meaning that the government declared it to be highly addictive with no medical uses. Interestingly, this puts CBD on the same level as heroin and cocaine. This, of course, attributed to the negative social stigma surrounding the plant. Anything cannabis related was often associated with stoners and drug culture. 

Though there is still a need to further educate the public on the natural benefits of hemp, there is a transformational change taking place in America’s cannabis industry. Just last year, President Trump signed the 2018 Farm Bill, federally legalizing non-psychoactive hemp extracts. CBD is now a Schedule V, putting it on the same level as most over the counter cough medicines, a significant drop compared to the previous classification. 

The metamorphosis of legalities regarding hemp products can be attributed to copious amounts of new research proving that CBD is both effective and natural. The human body is wired with its own endocannabinoid system that helps process cannabinoids like CBD and THC. While THC does produce hallucinogenic effects resulting in a “high,” CBD does not. This is because CBD works indirectly with the neurological receptors that are located within the brain and body, creating all the benefits we love without the side effects of THC.

Recently, the FDA cleared an anti-seizure medicine containing CBD. It is said to limit and lessen the harsh effects of seizures, especially for patients that do not respond well to traditional drugs and their side effects. This is the first medicine of its kind in the United States, surely the effectiveness will open doors for further research in CBD-based medicines.

Additionally, further research is being conducted to treat autism. Studies in Israel and the United States have shown that those with autism have had less anxiety, resulting in fewer social outbreaks as well as an improvement in communication skills when using CBD products as part of their daily regimen. 

CBD Infused

Through its newly legal status, you may have seen CBD make an appearance outside of the medical community. You can find it in waters, oils, drinks, and more! Country star Willie Nelson drinks it in his coffee and celebrities like Mandy Moore use it on the red carpet to remedy the pain of wearing high heels all night. The cannabinoid even made an appearance at the last Super Bowl when Barista’s Coffee Company released ads for their new hemp-infused coffee line at the stadium. Clearly, CBD seems to be storming almost every industry imaginable! 

Many beauty retailers have launched an array of cannabis-infused skincare products said to benefit any skin type as the hemp can treat signs of aging, acne, and promote hydration for even the most sensitive of skin. 

CBD throat sprays are another big up and coming product that is said to calm the inflammation of tired vocal cords. Moody’s Medicinals Throat Potion is perfect for performers ready to rock their hit songs, business professionals making a pitch, or the everyday Joe with a sore throat. The throat spray is said to soothe the feeling of dryness and promote vocal comfort as it lubricates the throat. The CBD will also calm nerves and treat pain. 

CBD water is another heavy-hitter making waves in the industry. Moody’s Medicinals CBD Water is made of purified water infused with hemp-derived CBD and electrolytes that allow fast absorption and effectiveness.  CBD Water is said to reduce inflammation, enhance healing, boost the immune system function, balance hormones, and much more.

Medicinal Benefits for Everyone

As more CBD products hit the market, it seems like there may be something for everyone. From skincare to water, throat sprays, and coffee, the healing properties of hemp are for anyone looking to calm their nerves, get a good night’s rest, reduce pain or simply lead a healthier life.
