CBD GUIDE FOR MOMS BY TARA SETTEMBRE
We are super excited to be featured in @tarametblog check out her latest on instagram and read her latest blog below.
I don't know about you, but it seems CBD or hemp extract is everywhere lately. From health food stores to corner markets. Personally, I wasn't sure of what to make of it, but I did my research and have since experienced the overall health benefits. I'm now totally onboard.
CBD Won’t Get You HighCBD does not cause the feeling of being ‘high’ that is often associated with cannabis and does not have any psychoactive side effects. That high is caused by THC, which is in marijuana only. I, of course, would never suggest THC cannabis for parents or guardians.
However, because CBD alone will not make you feel intoxicated, it is a great option for parents or anyone else who do not want to compromise their mental clarity while looking for a natural remedy to pain, anxiety and depression.
CBD for Health and Self-care50 million people a year are prescribed Xanax, but CBD is a more natural alternative to deal with stress, anxiety, and many other ailments and without the unpleasant or dangerous side effects of pharmaceutical drugs or opioids. CBD has natural anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, anti-psychotic, and anticonvulsant properties that down-regulate stress signals in your body. This includes anxiety, inflammation, and of course, pain.
A growing number of people are also using CBD products to assist in recovering from depression. In some instances, CBD may offer non-toxic, virtually side-effect free, natural benefits for individuals who want to avoid or reduce the number of pills they are taking.
Like my love for Coconut Oil and other natural remedies, I believe there are CBD products out there that can make life better for the whole family and your improve your wellness routine.
