64% of American Adults Think CBD Is Safer Than Alcohol
CBD, a natural health supplement, is on the rise with multiple health benefits. As a matter of fact in a recent survey conducted by Forbes Health on 2,000 subjects–60% said they have tried CBD before.
CBD or Cannabidiol is one of the 100 cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. But worry not everything from the cannabis plant would not make you high. As a matter of fact, CBD does not contain any psychoactive properties so it will not intoxicate you nor will it alert your state of mind or cognitive functions. On the other hand THC, another well known cannabinoid which has psychoactive properties and does make you feel high. THC affects the brain function aspect of your body while CBD mostly affects the body.
Today CBD are available in many forms like oil/ tinctures, topical, capsules, edibles, vaping oil or isolates and it's very common to find CBD products to contain THC. As a matter of fact many parts of the world do allow 0.1-0.3% THC in the CBD products. CBD does come without THC too like those made from CBD Isolate or Broad Spectrum CBD.
CBD is a highly individualize supplement and there's is still no official regulation on how much CBD you need. It's best to start with a low dosage and increase amount if needed.

Back to more good news…58% believe it's safe to consume CBD while 64% believe CBD is safer than alcohol.
Here's why alcohol is harmful:
Alcohol is highly addictive
Is a depressant so it will slow down your central nervous system
Impair judgment and coordination
Mental health illness
CBD is not addictive. There may be some side effects like dry mouth, diarrhea, drowsiness or changes in appetite. You should be aware that CBD may interfere and interactions with medications so consult with your doctor if you are currently medicated or have a medical history.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) says there are 3 million deaths every year worldwide from harmful use of alcohol and this makes it 5.3% of all deaths. Yet alcohol has been legal for a very long time and well advertised in society while CBD has only started being legalized–but CBD is definitely here to stay!
44% of participants think CBD should be legal while 21% think it should remain illegal.
45% thinks using CBD exclusively is socially acceptable as long as it's without THC and only 15% thinks it's not acceptable. This is definitely a good prospect of how people view CBD.
There is a dark cloud over CBD or cannabis in general. It's necessary to educate and inform the public about cannabis. They may not have access to the right education on therapeutic properties of cannabis and how to use cannabis safely and responsibly.
THC may also be the culprit. THC is mostly associated with marijuana and it does not always have to make you feel high and intoxicated so much so that you can not continue with your daily life. THC can do wonders for your health too!
THC can relief pain, manage nausea and vomiting, stimulate appetite, reduce stress and improve sleep.
As a matter of fact using CBD products made from Full Spectrum CBD with THC and other cannabinoids like CBG, CBN, CBC, CBDa, THCa, terpenes and flavonoids can help make CBD more effective and optimizes the performance and we call this the Entourage Effect.
We hope your journey to CBD and natural health supplement is a pleasant one!
