CBD: The newest legal trend to come out of cannabis.
For those who haven’t tried CBD but are interested in dipping a toe into the pond of potential benefits associated with CBD, the time has never been better!
CBD (cannabidiol) is found in the cannabis plant, naturally extracted, and is then manufactured into a variety of forms – though you won’t get ‘high’ from it. THC is the compound also found in cannabis that is responsible for the psychoactive ‘high’ produced in cannabis-use. CBD sold legally in the United States contains less than 0.03% THC and is non-psychoactive.
Benefits Upon Benefits
Among the of host of benefits, CBD is used to treat many conditions, including chronic and acute diseases. Some of the most common ailments treated with CBD include mental disorders, such as:
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.
CBD is known to offer anti-inflammatory effects that promote better mobility (when taken orally), as well as on the cellular level (when blending the oil with a topical cream). It’s also reported to be more effective than Vitamins E and D in reducing cell damage that leads to signs of aging by helping to stabilize harmful free radicals in the body.
A CBD Option Everyone
Right now, the market is filled with a CBD option for everyone. There are oils for those interested in mixing it into a carrier oil (to be used in cooking) or taking it as is, orally. Topical ointments are a great option for anti-inflammatory CBD benefits when applied in a topical cream.
CBD can also be vaped, smoked, ingested in a capsule, but perhaps the most delicious option is when it’s consumed as food or drink.
One of the newest CBD producers to join the Valley Natural Foods Wellness Department produces both edible and drinkable CBD.
WYLD CBD offers THC-free, non-psychoactive, real-fruit infused CBD products. Even better, they’re one of the few CBD brands on the market that’s vegan! The Oregon-based company uses only USA-sourced, broad-spectrum hemp extract. WYLD CBD is tested by a 3rd-party lab to certify less than 0.003% levels in all of their products. For reference, the 2018 Farm Bill legalized less than 0.3% THC as the standard for non-psychoactive, legal industrial hemp.
You can rest assured that WYLD CBD is as pure CBD as possible.
Legal, but not FDA-Approved
As with trying anything new, it’s best to start small and monitor its impact. CBD is not regulated by the FDA so it’s important to only purchase CBD from a company that tests their products via a certified 3rd-party lab. Third-party product verification helps ensure the amount of CBD inside the product (as well as ingredients) can be confirmed without having to rely solely on the manufacturer’s word.
CBD Side Effects
Very little is know about the side effects of CBD. Possible side effects that have been linked to CBD include:
- changes in appetite
- changes in weight.
