No matter where you look, there seems to be a new CBD-something coming out every single day. There’s CBD lotions, oils, soaps, serums, chapstick, gummies, teas, cocktails, and powders. You can even find CBD pet treats (although, the FDA says to exercise caution until more research is completed). 

So what is CBD anyway and why is it so popular? 

CBD is one of the active ingredients in marijuana with a slew of alleged health benefits like relieving anxiety, alleviating chronic pain, and helping reduce insomnia… to name a few. 

But one thing it’s not known for is: getting you “high.” 

Unlike THC (the other main ingredient in marijuana), CBD isn’t a psychoactive, which means that it doesn’t come with the sensation of euphoria that can alter your mood and perception. And according to a report by the World Health Organization, even high doses of CBD won’t cause “THC-like effects” such as feelings of impairment, dry mouth, and increased heart rate. 

Curious but still confused as to what exactly CBD does? You’re not alone.

While CBD has been named a “miracle molecule” and called the “ticket to glowing complexion” by Self Magazine, there are still a lot of question marks when it comes what exactly CBD can do. 

Doctors say more research needs to be completed and more high-quality evidence needs to be gathered before we can prove CBD is an effective treatment for mental health or skin care (or pretty much anything).  

Moral of the story: We’re not claiming to be CBD experts here, so talk to doctors and always remember to do your research before putting anything on or in your body. 

But if you do decide you want to check out CBD for yourself, here are some vegan CBD products that we have our eyes on!
