CBD - Cannabidiol

By now most of you have probably heard about CBD or Cannabidiol, one of the least psycho-active cannabinoid chemicals in the Cannabis plant.  It makes up approximately 40% of the marijuana plant, give or take.  The great things about CBD are:

  • It has no psycho-active properties (in other words, it does not get you “high”)

  • It has been shown in scientific studies to reduce pain

  • It has proven ability to reduce anxiety and depression

  • It has anti-inflammatory phytochemicals 

  • It appears to be useful in the treatment of epilepsy / seizure disorders

CBD is legal in most states and situations. Here is a state by state guide book  (https://cbdschool.com/cbd-laws-by-state-2017-guide/). Please check this resource to learn your state's laws.

 

Please note: we do not sell CBD or related products.

 

IMPORTANT:   there are three types of CBD extract:

  • Full Spectrum Extracts - other cannabinoids including the psycho-active element THC are present in these extracts.  The THC can build up in your system over time and can possibly show up as positive for THC / marijuana use on drug tests.

  • Isolated Extracts - these are supposed to be primarily CBD only, but will sometimes contain up to .01 -  .03% THC, so they are not 100% pure CBD. As a result, THC can build up in your system over time.  This potential build up makes these products unsafe if you are being drug tested for any reason.

  • Pure Extracts - There are 100% pure CBD extracts on the market. If you want or need to be certain that you have  0% THC in your system, I recommend this CBD category.  of course, this extract is the most expensive as it requires more processing to produce 100% pure extract.

 

Currently, I highly recommend only one 100% CBD product. This product is 100% CBD and 0% THC and available from The CBD Boutique.  The CBD Boutique is located in Albuquerque, New Mexico, (505) 266-6238, www.thecbdboutique.com.  They will be happy to explain the benefits of their guaranteed 100% pure CBD extract. If I become aware of another truly  pure CBD product, I will update my blog.

 

A note on dosage: generally speaking, though plant based medicine is not an exact science, the serving dosage for CBD is .25 (1/4) x body weight of the individual = grams / day , divided by 2 - 4, depending on your personal needs.  Used in excess it can make you sleepy.
