LAWTON, OK (TNN) -Tonight at Green Acres Market, they held their own seminar, CBD 101. Green Acres employees taught customers exactly what the product is, and the many benefits associated with CBD.
Cannabidiol or CBD is a product that has taken the nation by storm. CBD comes from Hemp or THC just like marijuana does, but that remains one of the only similarities the products have in common.
“THC, I forget the long word for THC, but it has certain effects. It effects your motor skills and other things in your body. CBD isn’t like that, it actually opens up different pathways and helps with the communication between different receptors in your body” said Laura Flores.
At CBD 101, customers had the chance to ask questions and see demonstrations on how to use different variations of CBD. The seminar also explained some of CBD’s main benefits including inflammatory and pain relief, as well as help with anxiety, depression and insomnia.
We never just want to have people dive into something new without knowing what they are getting in to. Also we don’t want people to shy away from something because they have an idea in their head that it’s all bad. We wanted to give people a little more information and explain more of the benefits of CBD" said Flores
While CBD’s popularity has grown exponentially over the last year and customers have become more informed there still seems to be a stigma attached to CBD.
“The more education people get about it, the more they are going to accept and be willing to try new things. CBD is a great product and so many people benefit from it.” said Kayla Hernandez
