CBD – A Real Alternative to Prescription and OtC Medications

The legal form of cannabidiol (CBD) is not marijuana. It’s extracted from hemp, a plant in the cannabis family, that contains less than 0.3 percent THC – not near enough to get you high. Numerous studies show hemp and its CBD component offer many health benefits, including anti-inflammatory properties that rival ibuprofen, cardiovascular and immune system support (due to omega-rich fatty acids), as well as sleep and mood enhancement.

My latest contribution to Coffee or Die magazine tells the story of former Army Ranger, Coby Cochran. Coby’s early struggles with PTSD and its associated complications led to the birth of his company UnCanna, which makes some of the best CBD product in the industry. UnCanna is leading the charge to convince Congress and the DOD to lift restrictions on CBD use for active military personnel. A link to the story appears below.
