Let’s play pretend for a minute.
You’ve finally decided to give CBD a try and guess what – it works! It’s working like you hoped, you’re feeling better and your life is improving.
But you’ve got people around you who still buy into the fear-based stigma that CBD will somehow get you high.
You know it won’t.
And here’s how you can explain the difference:
What I Wish You Knew About CBD
Not all cannabis is marijuana, though all marijuana is cannabis.
And not all cannabis is hemp, though all hemp is cannabis.
Cannabis can be sorted into two strains: hemp and marijuana.
Marijuana has more than .3% THC, which is the chemical that gets you high.
Hemp, on the other hand, has less than .3% THC, so no matter how hard you try, hemp will not get you high.
Hemp, recently legalized nationwide by the Farm Bill, contains large amounts of CBD – a cannabidiol that encourages and facilitates healing.
THC overwhelms your endocannabinoid system, causing the “high” associated with marijuana.
Hemp simply cannot do that. It’s chemically impossible.
So if someone you love is using CBD to help with their health in one way or another, don’t worry.
They’re not doing drugs.
They’re not going to get addicted.
They’re using natural means to achieve better health.
This is a really good thing!
Ask questions about how they use CBD. Questions and honest listening will help fight the CBD stigma.
