CBD 101

The Ringside M.D. weighs in…

“As an internal medicine physician who treats many patients suffering from anxiety, chronic aches and pains and/or inflammation, I have often recommended the use of Cannabidiol (CBD). Scientific research indicates that CBD may have several unique properties which might help patients with a multitude of medical issues. My anecdotal experience suggests that patients who have used CBD have benefited from these products.

Although CBD has been widely utilized for several years, it was only recently that the beneficial effects of Cannabigerol (CBG) were evaluated. The early clinical studies suggest similar effectiveness to that of CBD. Over the past few months, I have begun treating several individuals with a combination of CBD and CBG. The hope was that this combination would potentate the medical benefits of each. After utilizing this unique combination, the feedback has been only positive with many patients reporting significant improvement in their symptoms.

Furthermore, the introduction of a new CBD/CBC (Cannabichromene) product seems to benefit patients who suffer from inflammation, insomnia and sleep disorders as well.

All of these products are derived from the hemp plant and contain virtually no THC and are therefore not psychoactive (do not get you high). As such, as long as products contain less than .03% THC, they tend to be legal in all 50 states.

As most patients who buy supplements are concerned with product potency, ingredients and compositions, it is nice to know that STB takes this issue very seriously and only provides the highest quality of product. This is an important distinction in that many cannabinoid products which are sold in stores or on the Internet are not always tested to ensure you are getting the safest and purest products available. STB allows you to buy with confidence as safety is their number one priority.”
