After researching the benefits of each product and the many bells and whistles that came with them, I was overwhelmed by the sheer amount of information available online. This company sells it in this strength and at this dosage. It can be very overwhelming for beginners. However, an old friend of mine is available to help!
Piedmont Green was founded in 2019 by Eric Abarelli, Christian Dobson, with the intent to promote a holistic and natural approach for healthy living using the benefits of CBD. Located in Kannapolis, North Carolina they have created quite a business despite the fact that they live on the Bible Belt–which opposes the use of cannabis. The team and their business have had such an impact on the community that they were able change people’s minds by educating them about CBD and its benefits. They also grow and make the products from their hemp, which makes it a small organic business.
What is CBD?
Eric was kind enough to explain what CBD is and how it affects our bodies. Here’s what he had for us:
CBD is a derivative from the Cannabis Sativa plant. It is derived from the hemp plant which contains minimal THC (legal limit is <0.3%) and is non-psychoactive. Everyone has an Endocannabinoid system, which is a system of receptors that binds to one's organs, brain, nervous, and skeletal structure. It is composed of CB1 and CB2 receptors which are dormant Cannabis receptors waiting to accept an external source of cannabinoids. This system works with one's body to regulate serotonin, dopamine and oxytocin." With that being said, it has an ample amount of benefits and for those who don't have insurance–it can truly be a lifesaver for those with depression and anxiety. However, please do not ever self-diagnose or do anything without consulting a medical professional.
The Potential Benefits of CBD
Eric mentioned the many benefits of CBD to me, but the FDA has yet to approve the product. The bright side is that “The FDA approved only one CBD product. It was a prescription drug product to treat seizures related to Lennox Gastaut Syndrome (LGS), Dravet Syndrome (DS), or tuberous sclerosis Complex (TSC) in individuals one year and older.” This gives hope for the future, and a holistic approach to medicine.
However, with dozens of testimonies from the use of CBD, Americans are surprised that it is not prescribed by doctors. Despite legalization of medical marijuana in many states across the country, it has yet to become legal in all 50. Here’s the updated list here. Here are some benefits to using CBD.
