CBD: The Ingredient for Calming Your Tits

What is it?

Cannabidiol, more commonly known as CBD, is a compound of cannabis, more commonly known as jazz cabbage, that does not include THC. Unlike THC, CBD isn’t psychotropic (meaning it won’t get you SCONED at work or change your mental state), but it does have antipsychotic and anti-anxiety properties.

Benefits:

Internal

CBD comes in a variety of forms: oils, supplements, gummies, drinks, you name it. When ingested, it can help with a variety of ailments from chronic pain and inflammation to anxiety disorders.

External

While we know CBD to be an internal remedy, it can also be applied topically. Because of its pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties, CBD can help reduce muscle pain and even acne.

Risks:

While there aren’t many risks, CBD does have a couple side effects. It can cause some drowsiness and give you the poops, but other than that, not much else to report on here.

How does it work?

CBD chills you out by attaching to certain receptors in the brain, but it doesn’t mess with your head. You get all the benefits of being high without your brain getting all muddy. CBD is used to treat anxiety, pain, inflammation, and even acne.

Is the hype real?

Yeah, man, it is. I popped one of Not Pot’s gummies the other day and I was absolutely vibing from the hours of 2 to 4pm. Typically, one can find me hunched over my laptop furiously typing with my shoulders hiked to my ears, but I was so relaxed after taking this CBD, and my mind was still sharp. As a person who deals with some pretty heavy flow anxiety, but isn’t into prescriptions, I highly recommend giving CBD a try!

Our picks:

Not Pot: To be quite honest, the That-70s-Show-branding sucked me in, but I’m glad it did. These strawberry CBD gummy bears are where it’s at, and they’re some of the better CBD products I’ve tried. They’re also vegan if that’s important to you.

Tonic Vibes: Tonic Vibes has amazing variety when it comes to CBD. If you’re looking to relieve a specific ailment, like mood or pain, they’ve got you.

Lord Jones: Woof. Because of said hiking-shoulders-up like a gremlin, I have some pretty sore muscles in that region. Enter: Lord Jones High CBD Body Lotion, it’s like a warm gravity blanket for the aches of this mortal coil.
