Recently I’ve been seeing more and more health and wellness articles about the benefits of CBD oil and the medicinal qualities it contains, sans the high. At first it comes off as controversial due to it’s link to marijuana and all that fun stuff, which is exactly why I wanted to do some digging. I hope to clarify what the hype is about and whether or not it is actually something worth looking into.

The bottom line, for those who may still be confused, is that CBD acts nothing like normal “weed” that you would smoke or ingest via edibles or something along those lines. CBD interacts with your body much differently and triggers different responses and affects the body in a more therapeutic and helpful way. It acts as a substance that allows the body to heal and relax without the crazy psych-inducing effects!

I definitely want to try some CBD patches, gum or oils and see if I notice any changes!
