Is CBD the Real Thing? Or Just a Fad?

CBD is incredibly popular these days as a treatment for a wide range of ailments. But it hasn’t been fully embraced by the medical establishment. This raises the question: “Is CBD everything it’s claimed to be?”

What Customers Tell Us

Today, a groundswell of people profess CBD’s merits. At Lune Wellness, customers regularly tell us that CBD has helped with a wide range of ailments. They cite wonderful results, especially in the treatment of insomnia, anxiety, and pain management. Here are some of the comments they’ve sent us:

  • I just wanted to say how much the CBD has helped me with my anxiety.
  • Great product. Has helped me through chronic sciatic pain.  
  • As an ultra endurance cyclist and trail runner I can tell you I know when something addresses inflammation.
  • These are excellent cannabis medical products. They are proven to be really effective for pain control, inflammation, sleep.

No Side Effects

The accolades pour in. Not just to Lune Wellness but wherever people share health-related information. And of course, the amazing thing about CBD is that it has no significant side effects (unlike THC, its cannabis cousin, it won’t get you stoned. You can take it and still function normally). How many pharmaceuticals can make that claim? Too often, the upside of a medication comes with tag-along symptoms that make us wonder if the bark isn’t worse than the bite. 

But there’s lots of scepticism, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Some sources are saying it’s a fad (see this New York Times article). With CBD being added to lifestyle products such as skin care creams, and recreational products such as beverages, it’s no wonder that some question CBD as a “serious” medicinal treatment.

The Future Looks Bright

We at Lune Wellness believe in the product and we remain focused on CBD for its medicinal benefits. We’re confident it will revolutionize health care, particularly pain management, which compromises the quality of so many lives and keeps people from activities they enjoy (you can visit our blog on pain management). Additionally, we’ll gradually see more research to help take the guesswork out of dosing. We think the future of CBD is very bright and that the science will prove out what people are saying about CBD.
