Every day, there’s new information about the coronavirus swimming around on the internet. Eager people are desperate to have daily life get back to normal, so they’re relying on online articles and promising products to offer miracle cures. COVID-19 has thrown a wrench into the plans of millions across the nation (and the world) as proms, graduations, vacations, sporting events, and concerts have all been canceled, leaving people disappointed, to say the least. We know deep down that missing an event is a small price to pay to avoid spreading a potentially deadly virus, however, it still stings. We so desperately want a solution.
Now, we know this is obvious, but it has to be said: Everything you read on the internet is not true. Of course, you know this, but it doesn’t stop hopeful everyday folks from believing false information because they saw it online. That being said, we have to make this absolutely clear:
At this time, there is no known anti-viral for the coronavirus – including CBD.
It’s a disappointment, we know. But it’s true, and don’t let the internet tell you otherwise. No matter what you read, CBD is not an antiviral for COVID-19. If you suspect that you are sick, seek professional medical attention immediately and don’t rely on unsubstantiated internet claims for at-home, anti-viral remedies.
CBD – What This “Wonder-Supplement” Can Do
While CBD isn’t a cure or anti-viral for the coronavirus (and we have yet to find one thus far), it receives enthusiastic praise every day for the many things it can do. If you are new to CBD and you don’t know what it’s capable of, here are a few of the top reasons people use the all-natural compound every day as part of their wellness routine.
❖ To start the day, CBD is taken to provide a sense of clarity and offers a natural mental boost. Consumers typically take a CBD softgel or tincture with breakfast. Another popular option for many is to make a CBD latte or CBD smoothie.
❖ Throughout a hectic or strenuous day, when consumers need midday support, many reach for a CBD energy drink or tea. Delivering quick, sustainable relief for the wound-up mind, these CBD products make it easier to get through a busy day.
❖ After a challenging fitness routine, when muscles and joints are fatigued, CBD balm or freeze cream is applied topically to deliver prompt relief. Topical CBD products offer targeted, nourishing support to aid in the post-workout recovery process.
❖ Before bed, when the body and mind are feeling exhausted yet the mind struggles to lull into a restful slumber, a CBD Softgel + Melatonin is a popular ideal solution. Harnessing the power of both CBD and all-natural melatonin, the body can more easily relax and unwind. The product continues to release into the bloodstream throughout the night, helping to ensure individuals not only fall asleep, but stay soundly asleep until morning.
Morning to night time, there are versatile uses for this well-rounded wellness product. Between diligent researchers and eager consumers, new benefits are being discovered on a regular basis, making CBD a truly ideal holistic option for just about everyone.
CBD 101: A Basic Guide
Now that you know some of what CBD is capable of, you may be wondering if it’s too good to be true. The internet is full of misnomers on this topic as well, and many people are hesitant to give it a try because they are confused about what CBD actually is and whether it’s legal and safe. Because we know you are eager to reap the benefits of this amazing compound, we are going to clear up any questions you may have so you can be confident as you shop for CBD.
✓ CBD is an all-natural, plant-derived compound.
✓ CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of many compounds extracted from the hemp plant.
✓ Hemp-derived CBD is completely legal in the United States and has been since The Farm Bill of 2018 was signed into law. The legislation legalized all hemp-derived CBD containing .3% THC or less for production, purchase, and consumption.
✓ Hemp naturally contains extremely low levels of THC, short for tetrahydrocannabinol. THC is the ingredient that produces the “high” feeling typically associated with marijuana. Because hemp contains such small amounts of THC, it does not produce psychoactive side effects, making it a popular option for many.
✓ Hemp is in the cannabis plant family but is a different plant variation than it’s cousin, marijuana. It is important to distinguish the difference because hemp-based products are legal across the United States while marijuana (and products containing it) have a more complicated legal standing. To be clear: hemp-derived CBD products are completely legal.
✓ You can purchase CBD products with miniscule amounts of THC. Or, for your added peace of mind, you can purchase THC-free CBD products. You can easily tell the difference by reading the labels. Look for:
- “Full Spectrum:” Products with this designation have small amounts of naturally occurring THC.
- “Broad Spectrum:” Products with this designation have been processed further to remove small traces of THC.
Note: Full Spectrum and Broad Spectrum CBD products do not cause mind-altering side effects.
✓ CBD is non-addictive, which makes it a more appealing, safe, dependable wellness product.
