This video is all about cannabidiol aka CBD aka one of the Internet’s newest all-natural obsessions. I’m not only going to break down what it is, but I’m going to answer all the most pressing questions surrounding it, like: Can you use CBD oil for anxiety? Can CBD oil help you sleep? Is CBD oil legal? What are the side effects of CBD? And much, much more.
But first things first… what in the world is CBD? Well, CBD is a natural compound found in the flower of the cannabis plant. Cannabis contains more than a hundred of these “phytocannabinoids” (including the popular psychoactive one tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC), so CBD is just one of many cannabis-derived compounds.
But unlike THC, CBD isn’t psychoactive. I repeat: CBD does not trigger hallucinations or intoxication. It’s most commonly contained within gummies, oils, and creams to treat everything from loss of appetite to joint pain, anxiety, and even poor sleep. I should also add that it’s totally legal to purchase and consume hemp-derived-CBD in all 50 states.
To learn more about how CBD works in the body (as well as how it feels and how much you should take), make sure to click play on the video above. Then, you can hop on over to my full guide, where I go into even more detail about the compound’s effects and the research that’s been done into it!
