5 Things You Should Know About CBD
Cannabis is a complex plant with many applications. While it’s mainly known for its intoxicating properties, cannabis offers many other benefits. With researchers having unprecedented unprecedented access to the plant, we’re gaining a better understanding of the many positive ways cannabis can impact our lives. One of the most discussed and widely used is CBD, which stands for cannabidiol.
Here are five reasons why CBD is one of the most important innovations in cannabis.
1: CBD Does Not Get You High
Unlike THC, CBD is non-intoxicating, and you will not experience any of the euphoric effects of THC. Cannabis is made up of many compounds, including cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and more. When you consume cannabis in flower or concentrate form, these compounds combine to create the ‘high’ cannabis is known to induce, often called the entourage effect. But, these compounds can be extracted and isolated, allowing for products with very specific purposes. When isolated, CBD won’t get you high because you aren’t consuming any of the other compounds that would contribute to the entourage effect.
2: You Can Feel The Effects Of CBD
While CBD won’t get you high like THC will, you might experience a deeper sense of relaxation and mental calmness. Many users turn to CBD to relieve stress and anxiety. After a long stressful day, CBD can be a viable alternative to alcohol and prescription narcotics, which are known to have adverse physical effects. CBD is also considered a mild sleep aid and is great to keep on hand for those restless nights. Plus, CBD offers great post-workout relief.
3: CBD For Senior Citizens
CBD is for everyone, including seniors. As we come to understand more about CBD, we’re finding multiple applications. A number of senior citizens are replacing their prescription medications with safe and natural CBD remedies. Specialty products can help seniors with a variety of ailments, including:
Arthritis, Insomnia, Appetite Stimulant, Chronic Inflammation, General Pain Relief.
You should consult with your physician before starting any CBD regimen. With the rise of canna-wellness, many practitioners have experience with cannabis and CBD treatments and are receptive to their applications.
4: CBD Is Available For Purchase Almost Everywhere
CBD is still considered a controlled substance in some states and regions. Here in Nevada, CBD is legal for sale and you can find it just about everywhere, but that doesn’t mean you should purchase it just anywhere. The CBD products you see at the mini-marts and smoke shops are among the lowest quality, highest price CBD you can find. It matters where the CBD is sourced from and how it’s processed. High-quality CBD comes from clean extraction processes and tested plant material. Oasis only sources tested, clean CBD products and you should consult one of our knowledgeable Budtenders to learn which ones are right for you.
5: There’s A CBD Product For Everyone

From pain relief and sleep aids to mental clarity and energy, CBD is a versatile compound with many, many applications. There are even CBD products designed to enhance your sex life.
