- All About CBD
It’s no surprise that CBD products are popular and they are seemingly everywhere. So, what does CBD do and who uses it? In this article, we will discuss why CBD is so popular and what people use the products for. We’ll even take a look at some celebrities who have recently endorsed CBD products and hear what they have to say!
CBD and Word-of-Mouth
With CBD’s many advertising restrictions, we’ve found that word-of-mouth has mostly contributed to its popularity and the success of brands. Often a friend or family member tries CBD for one reason or another; they tell another person that it helped with one of their health issues, such as anxiety, pain, or restlessness. Then someone with that common issue decides to try it themselves. This has accumulated to a group of millions of people who recommend CBD products and share success stories with one another.
What Makes CBD Appealing?
Based on word of mouth, testimonials, and limited research, people are finding that CBD can help with a variety of ailments. It’s an all-natural treatment option too. There are a lot of risks associated with prescription and over-the-counter medications that have people turning to natural remedies. Our bodies are also naturally set up to receive the benefits of CBD. See our recent article about the endocannabinoid system for more information.
