All About Cannabis

Despite the legal fuss, it’s just a plant that grows like a weed in the wild. Cannabis itself is extremely safe; the only way it can kill you is if it a bale of it falls on you. There are no reports of overdosing on marijuana.

What Is CBD & How Is It Medicine?

How Do I Use Cannabis and CBD To Manage Chronic Pain?

Truth be told, I don’t like smoking or vaping. I use edibles, tinctures, or topical ointments with a high level of CBD. I’ve found that my body needs 1mg-2.5mg of THC in order to feel the full effects of CBD, but everyone is different. I also like a little bit of THC because it just makes everything a lot less terrible.

What Is CBD Oil?

CBD Oil is usually made from industrial hemp, which is related to cannabis but contains no THC. CBD Oil made from Hemp is legal in all 50 states. Many people use CBD Oil to manage anxiety and chronic pain because it non-intoxicating and is thought by some to have a much broader range beneficial effects on neurodegeneration, autoimmune disorders, heart, and liver health. Occasionally, I use CW Brothers Charlotte’s Web Hemp Oil or Manitoba Harvest Hemp Oil Pills (affiliate link) for an added boost of energy.

What’s the best kind of weed for anxiety?

I got this question on Instagram and I thought it was important to answer.

Legalize It & Decriminalize It
