Cannabidiol or better known as CBD is everywhere. In the last 5 years, CBD has become available in grocery stores all over the country. Once just an online product, now your doctors office may have it on their shelves. This rise in awareness and demand only stems from people’s desire for change in how they treat their bodies and the products they consume.
Holistic living has become a way of life for so many people. Eating properly is not just what you eat, but understanding where your food comes from. Looking for information about the source of the food, whether it’s produced locally, or the season in which it grows has become the norm for many people. Many people are recognizing that diet can drastically change their overall health and their ability to fend off diseases or illnesses. There are so many diets available these days. Vegan, Gluten-free, Keto, vegetarian, and so many more. Each diet has benefits and may serve you in what you need. This radical shift in people’s mindset allowed the advancement of plant-based healing to be a natural fit.
Hemp is a versatile plant that has been grown for centuries and used in countless applications to aid and help relieve many ailments. You can use hemp to make paper, cosmetics, relief aids, and even food. Industrial hemp is now being grown for its ability to produce high levels of cannabinoids. The most commonly known cannabinoid is CBD. CBD oil from hemp has provided relief to so many who have used it daily. In addition to the countless benefits, it’s also all natural and doesn’t cause nasty side effects. Hemp-derived CBD products can be used daily to aid in your wellness and assist in regaining homeostasis or balance in your whole body.
Hemp is made up of over 100 natural cannabinoid compounds. Each cannabinoid is packed with its own benefits so we make our products using full spectrum hemp oil. Full spectrum hemp oil means that the oils we use in our products do not just contain CBD, but also many other cannabinoids that occur naturally in the hemp plant. Using CBD products in this way aids in restoring and regenerating your body’s own Endocannabinoid System (ECS).
CBD is being used daily to help combat and relieve anxiety, depression, cramping, migraines, pain and inflammation. Traditionally people who have suffered from these issues have sought treatment from doctors willing to prescribe opioids or prescription medicines. Studies have shown how harmful these medications have become causing increase addiction and even death. This crisis has led people to look for alternatives in healing.
CBD was born out of the medical marijuana industry. As recreational laws changed in Colorado in 2014 people were curious of the benefits marijuana had to offer. While marijuana still has high amounts of THC (the cannabinoid that alters your psyche and makes you feel “stoned”) hemp produced high amounts of CBD with low amounts of THC. The amazing discovery led to further advancements in science and technology to see how CBD can be utilized in a variety of forms and products. Today CBD is used to make oil drop tinctures, relief body balms, CBD patches, pills, and more. People are seeking it out as they once did in looking for alternative diets. The trend of shoppers looking for cleanly sourced, nutrient rich superfoods created an atmosphere for CBD to become wide spread.
CBD is everywhere and will continue to be more available in the stores you visit most. Although the vogue nature of CBD may lend people to believe that this product is mostly used by millenials who do most of their shopping online. In fact, according to the AARP website, CBD has become a popular treatment for pain and arthritis among baby boomers.
The baby boomer generation has been prescribed medications for years and many feel that they want to try something different. They may be experiencing arthritis, inflammation and pain that is limiting their mobility. Seeking new solutions helps keep them young and active.
A lot of the increased demand and business is due to people seeking CBD because their friend or loved one has tried it and has referred them to a certain brand or product. Those referrals are real and people are really enjoying the way CBD is helping them. CBD is being considered a “miracle” as people from all ages are using it either as a supplement or as an aid to assist in treating more serious issues
It is not surprising anymore to walk into your doctor or dentist office and see CBD products available to purchase. CBD is here to stay. As more and more people seek healthier alternatives to their diet and lifestyle, plant-based methods of healing will continue to be in high demand.
