While CBD may seem a bit complicated to start with, AnytimeFarma attempts to address some of the confusion and point you in the right direction.
CBD Will Not Make You ‘High’
Unlike Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, CBD does not produce the feeling of euphoria in users.
CBD-based Creams can be used Topically
CBD products like creams, salves, roll-on gels, and ointments have premium quality hemp extract. These are useful in helping reduce symptoms like inflammation and pain. Topicals like creams and salves, etc provide a dose of CBD that can be absorbed directly through the skin and provide immediate, targeted relief from discomfort.
Our Furry Friends Can Also Benefit from CBD Use
Our pets that suffer from symptoms of pain, arthritis, anxiety, and similar medical conditions can also benefit from CBD. CBD for dogs is one of the fastest-growing trends in pet-related dietary supplements. CBD for dogs focuses on keeping our four-legged companions healthy and well and can potentially save you dollars at the vet.
