If you are experiencing pain, trouble sleeping, anxiety, headaches, digestive issues or depression or migraines you may want to learn more about how CBD products can help.
If you haven’t heard about CBD you will. About six months ago our patients and customers at Pitt Street Pharmacy started asking questions like; “What do you think about CBD oil?”, “ Does it really work?” , “Will it make me high”, “Will it make me fail a drug test?”, “Do I have to have a prescription?”
These questions along with an increasing number of calls and visits from multiple companies on a weekly basis wanting us to sell their CBD products encouraged us to do our own research.
Unfortunately, along with any “new” product that becomes popular there can be misinformation, confusion and misconceptions. We think it is important to educate yourself. Especially, with claims that a product helps with so many issues you can become skeptical.
CBD is not marijuana and you won’t get high. You may be curious what it is, how it works and what benefits it will offer you.
Common questions, answers and facts about CBD:
CBD (short for cannabidiol) is extracted from the hemp plant, a member of the cannabis family. This seems to be the part that is confusing and creates concern. The difference is CBD doesn’t have the psychoactive (getting high) effect we think of when we think of marijuana. In fact, it has <0.3% THC.
The Agricultural Act of 2018 (aka the 2018 Farm Bill) legalized all cannabis extracts containing less than 0.3% THC.
All mammals (the reason it helps our pets, too) have receptors throughout their brains and bodies that process the cannabinoids we make ourselves, and the ones we consume from plants.
We all have an Endocannabinoid System. Who knew? Our Endocannabinoid System is a network of receptors and messengers that create the communication system between our brain and our body similar to our hormonal system.
It is responsible for regulating many important functions in the body including: Immune system, pain regulation and perception, memory and learning, moods and social behavior, circulation and digestion, reproductive functions, metabolism, thermal regulation and stress responses.
Consuming CBD stimulates your own Endocannabinoid System of receptors to work restoring internal balance to your body and mind that can potentially provide numerous health benefits.
You can get CBD in all delivery forms: Sublingual oils, topical creams, gummies, vaping, capsules and even in food and beverage products. Our patients have used CBD in a variety of ways with great results.
Being a compounding pharmacy, Pitt Street Pharmacy wanted to work with a company aligned with our values. Choosing the right product was a critical decision for us.
Our priorities were: experience, quality, education, service, care and support of a local company if possible. Fortunately, we found all the criteria important to us with Coastal CBD, a James Island company providing products made by Green Roads, one of the first companies in the United States to manufacture and produce CBD. Their products have:
- ZERO THC
- Every product batch is tested for purity and potency by a third party lab to ensure that “what’s on the label is what’s in the bottle!”
- They have received the honor of Best CBD Product Winner for 2018.
There will continue to be more research and possibilities for the use of CBD. It is exciting to be involved with a product that helps so many people and pets!
