Why we do <strong><em>What we do</em></strong>
Today’s society, movies, music, and culture don’t necessarily represent medical cannabis in a trendy, respectable manner and we recognize that veterans may face an internal struggle with regards to what’s right and wrong when it comes to healing and treatment approaches. Many soldiers left their teenage years of weed smoking behind to buy into strict, zero marijuana tolerance policies and a conservative military culture of what’s right and wrong. In re-entering civilian life, veterans report having to reconcile the military experiences that may be affecting them with modern, adult approaches to cannabinoids and healing.
We feel it’s important to remove the stigma of cannabis use. It’s why we turned to full spectrum hemp oil as our product of choice. Compared to THC, CBD does not produce the fatigue and lethargy that accompany smoking weed all day. Further, while THC can sometimes cause feelings of anxiety, paranoia, or fear, and is generally not advisable in cases of anxiety, CBD oil seems to have the opposite effect, even going so far as to negate these unpleasant THC side effects. Unlike other drugs, CBD has limited potential for abuse since it produces no psychoactive effects.
The effectiveness of CBD generally comes down to proper dosing which can and should be done on an individual basis. We recommend starting low and working your way up based on need until you find a dose that works for you. Higher doses may be more appropriate during evenings when feeling sleepy is not a problem, while lower doses are more helpful during wakeful hours.
