Perks of CBD for People Who Can’t Smoke Marijuana

Did you know that CBD and THC share some of the same benefits for your physical and mental health? This is good news for the tens of millions of Americans who are unable to enjoy marijuana.

In the past decade, 15 states and Washington, D.C. have legalized marijuana use for adults over the age of 21. For those who do not live in these territories, CBD is the perfect alternative.

Cannabidiol, otherwise known as CBD, contains cannabinoids that are known for having “feel-good” effects. CBD is commonly used for their therapeutic properties that help reduce pain, anxiety, inflammation, depression, etc.

Additionally, CBD helps to improve sleep quality and duration by relaxing the central nervous system. All of which are essential for balancing hormones, reducing stress, and improving the immune system.

Many find they prefer CBD over THC due to the less extreme side effects

CBD allows individuals to experience the health benefits without conflicting with the mind due to not activating the “high” or psychoactive feelings that you will find from THC. It has been found that CBD can even help alleviate side effects like intoxication and anxiety that are associated with THC.

According to the 2018 US Farm Bill, as long as specific requirements are met, CBD products are federally legal. That being said, CBD products that derive from industrial hemp plants are deemed federally legal. On the other hand, any CBD product that derives from marijuana or contains 0.3% THC or more, is illegal on a federal level (which is why many state jobs require drug tests).

For those of you who can’t smoke marijuana, you might want to consider CBD to experience their similar yet natural and legal health benefits without putting a job opportunity at risk!
