Chances are you have heard lots about CBD oil, and I bet that a lot of what you have been told is false. That is why I have Gretchen Lidicker, author of the new book, CBD Oil Everyday Secrets, here today to clear up some common misconceptions about CBD.
CBD can be used to prevent, manage and treat certain chronic conditions and provides all of the therapeutic benefits of cannabis without impairing you. Due to the sheer mass of information out there however, it can be a bit tricky to navigate. Gretchen is here to sort out myth from reality when it comes to CBD and help guide you in the direction that is right for you.
Symptoms of anxiety, Alzheimers, fertility and more can all be improved with CBD products, when you know what to look for. Learn how to know if you have a high-quality or low-quality product, what dosage you should start out with, experience the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits of this miracle oil, and so much more.
We are just starting to figure out how the endocannabinoid system works in the body and how we can leverage it to create powerful changes with natural substances, and the results are very promising. With experts like Gretchen, we can bridge the gap between the mind and the body to find true natural healing.

“There's a lot we still don't know, there's a lot to learn. But when you compare the potential of these to the side effects we are currently experiencing from drugs and pharmaceuticals, it's like let's lean in into this and really figure out what they can do.” (38:39)
