Meet Cannabis, Plant Based Health Revolution
In 2019, it is likely that you have heard about CBD or even tried it. Maybe you have done a little internet searching about what it is, what it does, why people use it. Your friend might be using it and telling you all about how it is her remedy for anxiety, pain, or inflammation.
Perhaps you have seen the FB post about how cannabis maybe the key to fighting the opioid crisis or treating cancer. And that it is great for depression, acne, autoimmune disorders, PTSD…. There are many, many claims about the greatness of cannabis, hemp and CBD. It all sounds so amazing, but can be pretty hard to believe that is is so great for all those things.
Can a simple natural plant work in all of those issues? Well, the answer is maybe. If you start reading the actual science, it is promising.
But then you start asking “Where can I buy it?”, “Is it legal?”, and “How much do I take?” And this is where the information can get confusing and conflicting.
When I first starting researching cannabis, I started down a rabbit hole of information. How does it work? How much should you use? How does it affect your body? How does it react with medications, supplements? How do I talk to the doctors about trying it? What strains would be best for my my symptoms? If I don’t like how one strain/brand makes me feel, are there other options?
Luckily for you I love researching, and am passionate about educating and empowering others. It is my purpose to share with you all of the information you may need to start on your cannabis journey.
Right now you have a couple of options.
