As a medical doctor, it is Dr. Chad’s responsibility to provide accurate and reliable information to his patients.
A big questions his patients ask about CBD tinctures is whether they qualify as drugs.
The simple answer is no, CBD tinctures – aka CBD liquid drops – are not drugs.
CBD is one of the many compounds found in the cannabis plant.
A lot of people confuse CBD with THC.
THC is found in high amounts in marijuana plants.
CBD like we sell at Bradford Wellness Co. comes from the industrial hemp plant and does not contain large amounts of THC – always less than the law demands.
So, rest assured, using CBD tinctures will not result in any mind-altering effects.
What Does CBD Do to You?
So now you know what CBD DOESN’T do to you.
But what WILL taking CBD tincture do to you?
While research is still ongoing, CBD has shown promise in managing common health conditions.
It interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which has a big role in regulating functions such as your sleep, mood, pain perception, and even your immune response.
Here are some positive effects people are seeing in their lives from using CBD:
- Pain Relief: CBD may help alleviate chronic pain by reducing inflammation and interacting with neurotransmitters responsible for pain perception.
- Anxiety and Stress Reduction: CBD may have anxiolytic properties, promoting a sense of calmness and relaxation.
- Improved Sleep: CBD may aid in improving sleep quality, helping individuals achieve a more restful night’s sleep.
- Epilepsy Management: CBD has been extensively studied for its potential anti-seizure effects in certain forms of epilepsy, leading to the FDA approval of Epidiolex, a CBD-based medication.
- Skin Health: CBD-infused topicals may help manage skin conditions like acne and eczema due to their anti-inflammatory properties.
It’s important to note that CBD’s effects can vary from person to person, and individual responses may differ.
As with any health-related decision, we recommend you take to a doctor so you can get personalized advice.
Does CBD Count as a Recreational Drug?
CBD does not count as a recreational drug.
Recreational drugs typically refer to substances that are used solely for their psychoactive effects (so people can get high).
As mentioned earlier, CBD does not produce the “high” associated with these substances.
It is primarily used for its possible health benefits.
CBD products, including tinctures, are widely available in many countries, subject to specific regulations.
However, it’s crucial to ensure you choose high-quality CBD products from reputable manufacturers and take CBD correctly.
For example, CBD can be taken on an empty stomach but may be more beneficial when taken with food.
This is because the market is still largely unregulated.
CBD tinctures are NOT drugs, and using them will NOT result in any psychoactive effects.
Always choose the best products.
Stay informed, make educated choices, and prioritize your well-being.
