Let’s face it – we are experiencing a modern day Gold Rush…only this time CBD is the GOLD. The incredible potential for curing symptoms and treating diseases without dangerous drugs or worry of addiction is EXPONENTIAL! Just like the 1849 California Gold Rush significantly altered the first half of the 19th century; the 2019 CBD Rush is here to alter the 21st century. With CBD proving to be a panacea for so many sufferers, why has it taken so long for this EUREKA moment to occur?
I believe the most resistance comes from “old school” cannabis attitudes. Visions of hippies, free love and visions of burn outs lying in the grass are etched in the mind of history. Yet at the same time, the fastest growing sector of CBD consumers, are those same 55+ people. That is, folks that are sick and tired of being sick and tired. CBD trials will further flourish when myths are dispelled (it is not illegal and does NOT get you high) old stigmas attached to cannabis, die out. We get closer every day. In the absence of that shame, discoveries associated with all cannabinoid plant extracts will thrive. CBD is only ONE of over 100 phytocannobinoid extracts shown to deliver unbelievable results & promise in clinical trials.
We have seen staggering documentation supporting claims that CBD has the power to act as an:
- Antiemetic (reduces nausea and vomiting)
- Anticonvulsant (suppressing seizures)
- Anti-inflammatory (mitigates inflammatory disorders)
- Antitumoral (fights tumor and cancer cells)
- Anxiolytic (Combats anxiety and depression)
- Antioxidant (tempers neurodegenerative disorders)
- Antipsychotic (mediates psychotic disorders)
I am a relative newbie when it comes to CBD. My CBD successes had been limited to treating migraines with our CBDfx Gummies (I love the 5mg.) and healing road rash using CBD Muscle Relief after a fall off my bike. Actually, now that I think about it, I used some CBD face care products last year when I first started at CBD HempWise in December. I worked here almost 2 weeks when the temperature dropped low – my stress went up high- and I caught a cold. My face was torn up from nose blowing, steaming above a pan of water and wicked dehydration.
I did not even want to show up on Friday – when I got there my boss offered up a bag with the Abinoid Botanicals cleanser, toner and serum. I took it home and by Sunday night I looked and felt 1000% better. It did leave me wondering. If I feel so much better right now- then why not try CBD every day? It is legal in all 50 states. CBD can be shipped anywhere in the U.S. Plus, CBD products offer such an outstanding variety of products and flavors; that it is impossible to find one you don’t love. No matter which CBD choice you make – each product is specifically formulated to improve health and enhance well-being.
As I think back on the CBD face care products, it reminds me how many different ways there are to ingest CBD. Pain sufferers seem to lean towards topical CBD salves and patches (applied right ON the troubled areas to target relief) & avoid the stomach, while the little gummy bears are perfect for anxiety support. Today, I am not sure that I am sold on the necessity of routinely consuming CBD, but I tell you what…try & stop me when I need some fast, healing help.
You may just hear me yell “EUREKA – We’ve Struck Gold! CBD GOLD.” Now, I like the prospect of that.
