CBD continues to enjoy a growing number of fans who have discovered the many benefits of this little powerhouse. Unfortunately, there’s still a lot of misinformation about CBD, as well as continuing confusion between CBD and marijuana. Since we get asked about CBD often, we thought it was time to circle back with a brief refresher on what CBD is (and isn’t!), the benefits of CBD, and why choosing a CBD product with liposomes may be your best bet for a better health routine.

What is CBD?

CBD, which is short for cannabidiol, is basically a chemical compound of the cannabis plant. It’s a naturally occurring substance found in cannabis and hemp. A big misconception is that CBD is the same as marijuana but that’s incorrect. Marijuana contains THC, which is short for tetrahydrocannabinol, which is the chemical that can impair a person. CBD contains no THC and therefore is not an altering chemical compound. In other words, CBD is not psychoactive.

How is CBD used?

CBD can have numerous health benefits for people, including help with pain, inflammation, and anxiety. Some scientific studies have found that it may ease symptoms of conditions such as chronic pain and anxiety. CBD may help reduce some cancer-related symptoms and side effects related to cancer treatment, such as nausea, vomiting, and pain. Some research has linked CBD with several benefits for the heart and circulatory system, including the ability to lower high blood pressure. One more recent study even found that CBD has the potential to prevent infections, such as breakthrough infections, of COVID. More specifically, the study states that cannabidiol inhibits SARS-CoV-2 replication. There is also a study by Oregon Health & Science University that shows hemp compounds prevent coronavirus from entering human cells.

Understanding why not all CBD products are the same

As with many popular supplement products, the market is starting to get flooded with CBD products, from gummies to pills to tinctures to beverages and more. As always, buyer beware! Not all CBD products are alike. If you’re seeking to get a quality CBD product and potentially reap the health benefits, keep a few things in mind as you shop. First, like many supplements, absorption is important. Products that have a liposomal delivery system are more likely to be better absorbed and utilized by your body than those lacking liposomes. Among other benefits, liposomal CBD stays in cells and helps you garner the benefits of the product. Also, look for products that can show third-party lab results. Future Pharm’s HEMPLETS has such lab results that show the liposome nanometers of the product.
