Remember when marijuana (aka cannabis) was the dangerous drug we hid from our parents. It was illegal and we were told it could destroy our minds. Well... A LOT has changed since then. And everyone (even your parents!), is talking about cannabinoids and using them to enhance their health, wellness and even their beauty routines.
CBD seems to cure and treat everything...but is it just hype? Intrigued by its popularity and all the positive possibilities, I had to know more!
Why has it amped up in popularity in recent years?
How can CBD help us with everything from skin rashes and pain to anxiety and insomnia?
How is it being used to improve our beauty and skincare routines?
Can CBD be used effectively to help improve our sex lives? Decreased libido?
With so many companies putting out CBD products right and left, how do we find reputable sources?
