CBD is quickly becoming a health and wellness staple in many people’s everyday life. As the popularity of CBD products increases, many consumers have questions about this new method and the potential to help manage pain, anxiety, and stress. It’s our job at LivingTree Botanicals to educate you on the potential benefits of CBD and how it may be used to manage stress and other symptoms.
Are The Effects Of CBD The Same As Marijuana?
Many people associate CBD with marijuana and worry CBD products will cause the same high as if you were to use marijuana. The main difference between the two is that CBD is extracted from hemp plants, which contain less than 0.3% THC. This percentage makes our CBD products legal and are not only 100% FDA-Compliant (See our Certificates of Analysis), but also non-intoxicating. Even though CBD does not have an intoxicating effect, research has shown that it still may ease anxiety and pain.
Potential CBD Benefits
Research, as well as anecdotal evidence from CBD users, has shown potential benefits of CBD, which include:
-May Help with Muscle, Nerve, or Joint Pain
While consumers and preliminary research mention these potential benefits, they have not been FDA approved. Our blog on the benefits of CBD for chronic pain can help you to learn more on how CBD may help with this issue that many Americans face.
Is Hemp The Same As Marijuana?
Though the two plants are close relatives, they have very different ways of affecting the body. Marijuana contains a higher concentration of THC – the psychoactive compound that is known to create a high. In contrast, hemp plants contain less than 0.3% THC, while having higher levels of CBD (the good stuff) that has shown to possibly help overall wellness.
