CBD is quickly becoming more mainstream and accepted by everyone from your health provider to your family members. It can still be tricky to have conversations about using CBD, especially when you want to encourage others to give hemp-based products a try. Here are a few talking points to help you break the stigma of CBD and hemp.
Hemp and Marijuana Are Different
Hemp and marijuana are different strains of the cannabis plant. CBD is a cannabinoid derived from industrial hemp plants and is non-psychoactive. People often associate marijuana with getting high. That high comes from the cannabinoid THC. If you’re talking to people about CBD and want to break the stigma around the psychoactive aspects associated with marijuana, suggest THC-free products such as our gummies, salves, spray, and tinctures.
CBD is Legal
CBD is legal as long as it is derived from industrial hemp and contains no more than 0.3% THC, thanks to the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill. Be sure to check the regulations and restrictions for CBD within your state.
CBD is Safe
CBD is not a miracle cure, but some studies show its effectiveness in specific medical conditions such as epilepsy. The FDA approved the use of a CBD-based medication called Epidiolex for the treatment of two rare forms of epilepsy in children, Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, and Dravet syndrome. There are many uses for CBD, you can read more about them by visiting our blog or contacting The Realm of Caring.
It is essential to start with a low serving size because there is no sure way to know how much CBD your body needs to start benefitting from it. Less can be more!
CBD Has Been Around for Centuries!
You might think hemp-based CBD is a new fad, but humans have been cultivating hemp for over 10,000 years! In ancient China and Mesopotamia, hemp plants were highly valued as food and to make fabric, sail clothes, and rope. In the U.S., hemp was grown in the Jamestown settlement and by founding “farmers” George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.
When talking to friends and family about CBD, it is vital to emphasize finding a quality product and manufacturer. Always look for lab-testing and Certificates of Analysis (COA) when shopping for CBD. The COA demonstrates that a product has been third-party tested by a lab to confirm it contains what the label says is inside the package. All Relive Everyday products are third-party tested, and you can find the COA on the website. To ensure products meet the high standards of the U.S., look for brands that are non-GMO, gluten-free, and grown in the U.S.A.
