There is a growing amount of interest in what appears to be the new kid on the block, CBD, but wouldn’t you be surprised to learn that hemp has been around and used since before written history? Because there is so much emphasis on CBDs and how they are different from the THC in marijuana, many people either forget or never learned that the use of hemp has been documented as far back as 8,000 BC. Remnants of hemp ropes connected to pottery were unearthed during archeological digs and were scientifically dated to that era. It’s interesting isn’t it? However, let’s hop forward to the 21st century to see what we should know about CBD and probably don’t.
CBDs Are Amazingly Effective Anti-inflammatories
One of the lesser known benefits of CBD oil is as a topical anti-inflammatory. Are you often plagued with puffy eyes after a night out on the town or a lack of sleep? If so, a small amount of CBD oil rubbed into those unsightly bags can quickly take most of the swelling down to as near normal as you’re going to get at this point. The same holds true for treating sunburn on the face. Keep a good supply of CBD oil on hand and you can reduce the red and swelling that often accompanies sunburn. In fact, you can buy CBD at wholesale prices so that you can keep enough around for this purpose and the ones to follow!
It Is Better to Ingest CBDs Than to Smoke Them
You will hear marijuana advocates tell you that smoking pot is not carcinogenic like cigarettes are, but there is a growing body of evidence to dispute that. Anything that burns has carcinogens and although you won’t be smoking greater than 5,000 chemicals emitted from cigarettes, you will still be inhaling something that burned. Yes, CBDs are healing, and it ‘can’ be disputed that the healthy effects of those miraculous CBDs can counteract the harm from smoke, but isn’t it better to ingest it knowing that you’ll get 70 to 90 times the benefits without the questionable hazards of smoke? It does make sense!
CBDs Are a Two-Way Street
Here is something which few people know. Cannabidiol is known for its effect as a relaxing substance. It is commonly used by those who have trouble sleeping, but did you know that some people get all amped up and full of energy when they take their CBDs? Just like coffee affects many people differently, so too do CBDs. One person may get nice and sleepy while the next person can get that boost of energy needed to get them through the day without all the nervous jitters of caffeine. This is another interesting tidbit which many people aren’t aware of.
Since CBDs have only recently been approved for sale across the nation, it does seem like it is something new. Fortunately, hemp from which it is derived, has been around since the days before Moses, so you can now rest assured that you are not going to be a ‘test subject.’ Are you interested in learning more about the benefits and uses of CBD? This is just the beginning of what you never knew.
