CBD information: Is CBD safe for kids?

Many parents come to HuxHemp and ask, “Is CBD safe for kids?” My answer is always, “Yes!”

Since opening, I have noticed more parents open their minds to learning about how CBD (and other cannabinoids) can help their children deal with ADD/ADHD, autism, anxiety, sleep disorders, stress, and much more. That is awesome! Parents, teachers, school advisors and others have come in to ask questions and here is what I have learned and can share.

First, the alternative pharmaceutical options are much riskier and potentially harmful option for your children’s (and your own) treatment. Would you rather try something that comes from a plant with no side effects or something from a lab with numerous side effects? The choice is easy. The active cannabinoids will only interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system for 4-8 hours. Start with a 5 - 10mg dose of CBD per serving and alter if needed (for mood, keep doses under 20mg in most cases). CBD interacts with the body’s CB-2 receptor, which has no effect on the brain. Endocannabinoids are found in breast-milk so phytocannabinoids are safe for children of all ages. CBD does not cause any intoxication as does THC.

Secondly, recent scientific reviews and papers I have read are now focusing on specific cannabinoids with CBD being the most studied. Great outcomes are being posted for children using CBD as a healthy treatment for autism.

These numbers are significant!

Take a few minutes and search google for: CBD treatment of children’s __(insert health issue)___. Make sure to change the search parameters for time to: past year. You’ll be amazed at what you find and learn. Doctors are still not taught about the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in medical school and the ECS was discovered in 1993. If doctors are unfamiliar with your body’s most important system, it’s time to do you own research. Question and push your doctor for answers.

Lastly, the kids’ response has been terrific - all claim CBD to be a much better supplement for their needs than any pharmaceutical drug. CBD helps them handle stress better, calms their anxiety and improves focus (those being the top 3 benefits as reported from users) with no side effects. Skin improvement (with less acne) is noticeable in younger customers after a few weeks of CBD use. Many health issues are caused by inflammation which CBD is able to greatly reduce and therefore improving one’s health.
