The FDA has already approved the use of a CBD-infused drug for treating seizures. More and more people have also stepped forward to tell their story about their experience CBD. Studies are increasing and the future of CBD may be on the right path.
Even professional athletes have turned to CBD for faster recovery and reducing pre-game stress. CBD has since been removed from the World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA).
AARP has also approved CBD for combating arthritis and other pains among seniors. CBD helps them manage osteoporosis, blood pressure and even tremors due to cancer.
Where to buy online
Despite CBD being available online, it can still be confusing to navigate the market. Since CBD products are also pricy, choosing the best one may be challenging.
Retailers offer a selection of CBD products like oils, tinctures, capsules, vape juices, topical creams, and gummies. So there is at least one product for you.
Bear in mind that although the FDA has approved the use of CBD for epilepsy, the organization is still discouraging the use of CBD as a dietary supplement.
To avoid any issues with the law, most retailers have a disclaimer that emphasizes the products available in the store are not yet approved by the FDA and are not intended to cure or treat any diseases.
There are two categories of Hemp-derived CBD products:
CBD Isolate is purified, THC-free and has been isolated and other cannabinoid and terpenes in the hemp plant. It is odorless and tasteless and product labels may say “THC-free.”
Full Spectrum CBD, on the other hand, is made from the entire components of the plant including cannabinoids, terpenes, and fatty acids.
Most users prefer full spectrum CBD than CBD isolate. When all of the cannabinoid, terpenes, and all other components are present, you enjoy an “entourage effect.”
However, it is best to stick with CBD isolate if:
• You live in a state that is strict about cannabis.
• You get drug tested (or could get drug tested) regularly at work
• You have a negative reaction to THC.
Because the CBD is still new to the market, some brands and products may have different instructions when it comes to doses. The right dosage intake depends entirely on each individual. It is recommended to start at the lowest dose given then monitor your reaction. You can increase the dosage until you find the right level that works for you.
