Whether you’re talking to high school students or adults, this “Cannabidiol (CBD) Trend or Treatment” information card will be a valuable resource. CBD (cannabidiol) is a chemical found in the cannabis plant. CBD does not make a user high like its close partner, THC, but does have many side effects. As CBD grows in popularity, it is important to be educated about it in order to make safe and informed decisions.
This handout begins by explaining the two types of CBD: full spectrum and isolated. While the legality of CBD varies from state to state, one of the defining characteristics it its origin. Marijuana or hemp. Full spectrum CBD is derived from marijuana while isolated CBD is derived from hemp. The banner lists the differences between the two.
CBD without FDA approval is considered a Schedule 1 drug, meaning that if you are in the military, all products containing hemp are illegal. Using CBD can cause you to fail a drug test due to the small amounts of THC present. Short term effects such as drowsiness, insomnia, fever, and more can occur while consuming CBD. Long term effects are still unknown. There is not enough research to say for certain that CBD is safe or effective.
