What Do You Really Know about CBD?

We’re in an era where we have a significant portion of information but at the same time we’re misinformed on a variety of aspects of life. It is strange isn’t it?

I’m on a quest to find out what all I think I know but I may not really know about in today’s era.

There’s this one famous expert who said that there’s known knowns and known unknowns and unknown unknowns. But then there’s the other line, it’s not what you don’t know that hurts you, its what you know that just ain’t so.

Those lines are making me think about life in a different way. I’m starting off by understanding the simpler aspects of life before delving further into more nuanced portions of it.

I’m not seeking to be a Yoda here or anything so I’m starting out with a fairly new trend, with that of CBD. There are many different institutions out there from Truverra to several others that can help to educate on matters regarding CBD. I like to learn in a more fun and intriguing way, so I added their quiz to my journey.

Let’s learn more about what I found and the #CBDKnowledge that I was able to glean throughout my journey.

How Did I Do On the CBD Quiz?

The moment of truth is here.

How was I able to do the on the quiz?

I was ecstatic to find out that I passed the quiz with flying colors. I’ve already patted myself on the back for my knowledge. I think I know more about the product because I’ve been following it for a while now. See, I’m a fan of slowing down and moving about in a way where I can enjoy life, read, and learn more about the good life. From time to time, I may stumble on great aids to help me to iterate and become better.

Anyway, let’s get back to the quiz.

But I’m not going to lie, I did have some hesitation with some of the questions. For instance, I didn’t know that it is generally legal to drive with CBD on your person. That should have been a give me answer I believe. I’ll tell you why right now.

What’s great about CBD is that it is naturally occurring within our brains and CBD infused products will not get us high. That’s the beauty of the chemical. Unlike THC, CBD focuses on different receptors and has other interactions with our bodies. That’s why it is becoming adopted in a more rapid fashion in a wide variety of consumer goods.

It may help in other ways like minimizing anxiety and creating a better food experience overall. Did you know that you can find CBD in gummies or baked goods like brownies?

Further, CBD isn’t just in food products, it can be found in skincare items as well.

So, if its spreading that fast, wouldn’t that mean that more people can find products and potentially get hooked to CBD infused products?

No. Although, you may love a brand in this niche and continue to buy from them because they make amazing products. For instance, you go buy from a brand like Gatorade or Hershey’s because you love the product and what it promises. In the same way, you can not get addicted to CBD because it will not naturally get you high, thus having no substance to get you coming back for more. I understand that you buy CBD infused products for the additional benefits that you can gain.

I’m glad I stumbled on the brand and took the quiz, I was able to learn much from it.
