Dear Other Parents, have you heard about this new craze called the CBD Oil?

I was minding my business while The Daily Show With Trevor Noah was playing in the background. Then I heard him mention something about a cannabis oil some moms are using on their children. It caught my attention, so I decided to do some research. Anybody that knows me, knows that I like to try new things. Especially if it’s made with natural ingredients and actually works. I was more curious than anything. I’ve never been a cannabis user and have always had an attitude against “weed”. Not only because of its reputation as a drug but also because of the effects I’ve seen it have on those I have seen either smoke or ingest. But over the years, based on the publicity its received for its positive effects, I wanted to learn more.

This is what I found out from healthline.com amongst other things:

Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the main psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis, and causes the sensation of getting “high” that’s often associated with marijuana. However, unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive. This quality makes CBD an appealing option for those who are looking for relief from pain and other symptoms without the mind-altering effects of marijuana or certain pharmaceutical drugs.
CBD oil is made by extracting CBD from the cannabis plant, then diluting it with a carrier oil like coconut or hemp seed oil.
Some scientific studies confirming it may help treat a variety of ailments like chronic pain and anxiety.
Recent research has linked CBD with several benefits for the heart and circulatory system, including the ability to lower high blood pressure.


What really concerned me was the use on children. We all know that knowledge is not static, opinions and understanding changes with probing. We don’t give our children alcohol, but we do give cough mixture. So is it time we changed our minds about the uses of cannabis? Is it just another thing that has its pros and cons but has been painted to be evil all along?

Some parents are using CBD oil to treat seizures, pain, and even autism in their kids.

As mentioned above, CBD oil is not the same as recreational marijuana (or medical marijuana) and doesn’t contain meaningful amounts of THC, the compound in marijuana that produces a “high”. So I was not exactly opposed to finding out how CBD Oil could assist in my child’s life. I ended up finding a safe online store called Purely CBD that offered different application uses for CBD Oil such as teas and skincare lotion. Having a child with aczema, this peaked my interest even further!

COULD THIS BE THE GAME CHANGER A LOT OF PARENTS HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR?

As a mother with a fairly healthy child at the moment, I might have reservations. But should I become a mother whose child is plagued by an ailment which can be treated by this CBD oil, all bets are off.

So to help you with your curiosity, I’ve found great products from Purely CBD that are safe for your little one:
