What Is CBD?
CBD, short for Cannabidiol, is a natural chemical compound extracted from Hemp — a species of Cannabis Sativa that doesn’t have intoxicating effects. It’s used in everything from edibles — from edibles – like gummies and chocolate, to impart a feeling of relaxation, which is said to calm nerves and alleviate discomfort. There is a plethora of scientific research being done to identify exactly how CBD interacts with our bodies and why it works.
People swear by the results they experience — with some claiming it’s helped with anxiety, epilepsy, osteoarthritis, skin conditions, recovery, and even cancer. That said, it’s important to keep in mind that CBD isn’t currently being regulated by the FDA. In fact, the market is a minefield full of questionable products that claim to eliminate diseases, but, in reality, have little to no effect on what they’re professing to treat.
There are some that do, though, like Rocky Mountain Girls’ Broad Spectrum Softgels— which has been the recipient of a slew of stellar reviews from users in the United States, who claim it’s fantastic at alleviating arthritis, inflammation and pain, while also creating a relaxing environment that’s ideal for managing anxiety. Another example is Rocky Mountain Girls’ CBD Oil. Is CBD Safe?
Yes! CBD is about as safe as a natural medication can be, with Hemp-derived strands with a THC count of less than 0.3% — the legal limit in the United States — having no intoxicating properties, side effects, or contraindications, according to recent tests. It’s also non-toxic; no fatal overdose has ever been reported — even when the substance has been consumed in large dosages.
One experiment, for example, required participants to consume 1500 mg per day. No adverse effects were recorded. This is interesting because 1500 mg is far more than the majority of people would consume in their daily heath routine. For context, standard CBD gummies contains 10 mg of Cannabidiol — roughly around the same dosage found in just one full dropper of RMG CBD Oil (250 mg tincture).
