First things first—what is CBD?

Let’s start by confirming that it’s perfectly legal despite some common misconceptions. It’s short for cannabidiol and is a naturally occurring substance used in products such as oils and edibles. It’s important not to get it mixed up with THC which is a major ingredient in marijuana. You can rest assured that CBD is not psychoactive—it just envelops you in a sense of relaxation and calm.

There are so many misconceptions but the one we hear the most is that people flat out just don’t believe it’s effective. Often, we find the culprit is someone has either never tried it, used a product made out of hemp SEED oil, or didn’t take their product daily.

CBD is most commonly used to help with anxiety or those who suffer from insomnia. Some options can be considered for treating chronic pain. If you’re curious to learn more, there are tons of informative articles that do a deep dive into CBD, its benefits, side effects and how to use it.

Where to find certified CBD in Birmingham

Near to Me CBD

Near to Me CBD was the first CBD exclusive store within Birmingham city limits. Their top goal is to make your personal or online visit as swift, informative and safe as possible. The store sells CBD vapes, lotions, salves, skincare items and pet products. They also feature a line of products from Relyf, the Birmingham-based premium CBD company.

We love to offer tinctures to first-time customers! It allows them to get a good measure on the proper dosage, while not restricting you to increments as capsules and edibles can. The sublingual application also allows a quick response from our receptors.

They also sell Delta-8-THC goods—a minor cannabinoid. It’s legal thanks to the Farm Bill which allows hemp-derived products with less than 0.3% THC to be sold. While writing this on April 1, 2021, there’s an amendment to try to halt the sales of Delta-8-THC with more updates to come.
