What is CBD? A Full Reader's Guide

CBD has become increasingly popular in recent years as more and more people discover its therapeutic benefits. Yet, there seems to be a lot of misinformation about CBD as well, often confusing those who are interested in trying it out. In this article, we will answer the most common questions and debunk some of the myths associated with CBD and how you can get started with SuperMom CBD products.

What Is CBD?

CBD is short for cannabidiol which is one of many chemical compounds that can be found in cannabis or hemp plant. Unlike the other components found in the plant such as THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD won’t get you high and doesn’t cause any discomfort either. Instead, people take CBD to help improve their health and wellness. It’s non-psychoactive and has been shown to have a variety of therapeutic benefits.

Even though CBD can have many wonderful benefits to help people in a variety of ways, you have to watch out for CBD products that have chemicals, additives, and solvents and do not have proper CBD labels or comply with CBD rules and regulations. Do your research and get familiar with the CBD brand and its products. For example, SuperMom CBD provides full-spectrum, all-natural products that contain no chemicals, additives, or solvents.

What are the benefits of CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a popular natural treatment that is used to treat a variety of ailments. CBD is gaining popularity, in large part because of its lack of psychoactivity and the benefits it offers for those suffering from pain and other symptoms. CBD’s anti-inflammatory, anti-stress, and neuroprotective effects make it an appealing alternative for people looking for relief from pain without the mind-altering properties of cannabis or other unpleasant side effects. Some common benefits of CBD may be used to:

  • Relieve pain due to its anti-inflammatory properties
  • Could reduce symptoms due to mental health disorders like stress, insomnia, and agitation
  • Help aid in relaxation for a good night’s sleep
  • Promote a sense of calm

Does CBD get you high?

One of the most common questions we get is “Does CBD get you high?” As stated above, CBD will not get you high or cause any discomfort. CBD is derived from the hemp plant and consists of a large number of molecules called cannabinoids. CBD binds to certain receptors in your brain and immune system, which do not cause you to experience euphoria or intoxication as THC does.

Does CBD show up on drug tests?

Generally speaking, no – unless you are consuming more than 20-50mg per day (a very high dosage). If consumed at such a level, some people may fail because CBD will cover up the THC metabolites. For this reason, it is important to be mindful of how much CBD you take, especially if you need to clear out drug tests for work or school. A good rule of thumb: start with 10mg of CBD on your first day and see what effect it has on you. 

How Does CBD Oil Make You Feel?

As mentioned above, CBD does not get you high or create any effects comparable to drugs. CBD products depending on their quality can have many positive effects. Science-backed research has shown that CBD supports a sense of calm and relaxation. A 2017 study found that CBD can have anxiolytic effects, meaning that it can reduce tension and uneasiness and be calming. When CBD’s potential of creating a sense of calm is combined with CBD’s potential to help muscle relaxation, many experience feelings of relaxation in both the mind and body.

With this in mind, some of the ways CBD can affect your body and make you feel include:

  • Feeling relaxed
  • Sense of calm and focus
  • Decreased stress and agitation
  • Sense of improved well being

What types of CBD can you consume?

CBD oil is one of the most popular CBD products, and there are many different ways to consume it. You can ingest CBD oil orally by swallowing capsules or drops like our Chill Pill CBD Tincture, or you can add it to food or drink. There are also various sweet treats that have CBD in them like our Mommy Candy Gummies or our Mom of the Year Fruit Chews. You can also apply CBD oil topically to the skin like our Muscle Magic that relieves aches and pains. There are many different ways to consume and use CBD, it really is up to the individual.

Lastly, it’s important to do your research about what company you are purchasing from so you know what products have chemicals, additives, solvents, etc., before buying any product containing CBD.
