CBD: A Medicinal Gift from Nature

Cannabidiol (CBD) is from the hemp plant. Hemp is not marijuana, as it contains less than 0.3% Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – the compound that causes the “high.” If you are concerned about testing positive for THC, only purchase products that have “0% THC” on the label and have lab analysis available.

CBD has helped people with many conditions. The common benefits of CBD include pain relief, improved mood and sleep, reduced stress and anxiety. CBD may also help in diabetes, hypertension, Alzheimer’s and more. CBD comes in many forms. It is available as CBD oil, which is taken sublingually (under the tongue), CBD edibles, such as gummies and dried fruit, topical creams and roll-ons, bath salts and CBD beverages, including alkaline water, tea and CBD coffee.

CBD is safe for children and pets. It may help children with seizures and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Pets may benefit from pain relief, increased mobility and reduced anxiety. Always consult a pediatrician and veterinarian before using CBD in children and pets.

CBD should be purchased from a reputable source. Verify where the hemp was grown and processed, the CBD and THC content. CBD is safe to take with prescription medications. Consult a healthcare professional and your medical team before taking a new prescription or herb. Mo City Vape-Othecary pharmacist Dr. Justin Redding is available to review your current medication regimen to determine if CBD is appropriate for your condition.
