Complete Guide to CBD by Forbes
Forbes just published their Complete Guide to CBD. The article remarks that CBD or Cannabidiol is taking the world by storm. This despite the stigma attached to marijuana cannabis-related products. The article attempts to relate history, how CBD works and common uses all in one article.
Quoting NYU Professor Dr. Esther Blessing, the article asserts: “CBD is the most promising drug that has come out for neuropsychiatric diseases in the last 50 years. The reason it is so promising is that it has a unique combination of safety and effectiveness across a very broad range of conditions.”
In addition, citing celebrity endorsement of CBD products. Notably Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Busy Philipps, and even Tom Hanks. Tom Hanks was quoted: “The first time I ever tried CBD was to help soothe my anxiety. I was fed up with taking various pills to try and make me ‘better’… It wasn’t how I wanted to live my life anymore. So I gave CBD oil a try. It was a huge relief for me to feel like myself, yet the edge was gone. A bonus to the whole thing was the relief from various aches and pains I have. Especially arthritis in my knees. It immediately alleviated 90 percent of my pain.”
Some Wise Advice
The Joresa Blount article advises consumers to check for independent lab analysis to determine if the specified CBD content is accurate. According to one study from Penn Medicine, 26 percent of surveyed products contained less CBD than the labels indicated, which could negate any intended health benefits. 70 percent of products actually contained more CBD, which has the potential to be dangerous.
Joresa also advises Consumers to avoid any company that makes claims about its products’ effects. CBD should be used as a treatment for symptoms; it is not a cure for anything, so a company that says otherwise is dangerous.
