CBD Oil Users and Their Reasons:  A Closer Look

CBD Oil Users and Their Reasons: A Closer Look

CBD oil has gained remarkable popularity in recent years, with a wide range of products now available in various forms. Its rise has sparked numerous debates, with some praising its benefits while others remain skeptical.

To gain a better understanding of CBD oil usage in the United States, SingleCare conducted a survey of 2,000 American adults in 2020. This survey revealed valuable insights into who uses CBD oil and why.

CBD: A Quick Overview:
Before diving into the survey results, let's clarify what CBD is. Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a natural compound found in the cannabis plant. Unlike its cousin, marijuana, CBD does not contain THC, the psychoactive component responsible for the "high" associated with marijuana use. CBD is non-psychoactive and non-addictive, making it a safe option for many.

Is CBD Legal?
Yes, but there are important caveats. CBD products derived from hemp, containing 0.3% or less THC, are legal under the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018. However, CBD products derived from marijuana are not federally legal.

The FDA has only approved one CBD medication, Epidiolex, for specific seizure disorders. At Natural Remedies, our products are derived from hemp so you can rest assured you’re getting a safe and legal product.

Who Uses CBD Products?
The survey revealed that 33% of Americans have used CBD products. CBD usage is more prevalent among younger adults, with the 18-24 and 25-34 age groups being the most common users. Surprisingly, the 35-44 age group is the most likely to continue using CBD, while older populations are less inclined to try it.

Some people are hesitant to try CBD because they lack trust in the product or the manufacturer. Here at Natural Remedies, we value transparency and ensure our products come with a Certificate of Analysis. We also can connect you with a CBD specialist to answer all of your questions before purchase. Others are unsure CBD will help their issue and some fear getting high. With more awareness and education around CBD hopefully these fears will be eliminated.
