I occasionally get asked questions about how CBD works and what its benefits are, especially since I have frequently enthused over its benefits on the podcast before and have encouraged you all to shop from Equilibria! I am not really the expert on this, however, so I decided to bring Maia Reed of Equilibria on to the podcast to discuss CBD and hopefully answer all of those burning questions that you have had!
Maia leads the member education team at Equilibria, and she has a background in plant-based medicine, having been an educator on the benefits of cannabis for over fifteen years. She also holds multiple cannabis certifications and has helped teach thousands of medical marijuana patients. As I said, she is definitely the expert, and of all of the CBD products that I have tried, Equilibria is by far the best, so I am so excited to share this chat with her with all of you!
Maia discusses her background and how she got involved with Equilibria. She also shares how the benefits of cannabis are personal for her and how she was initially drawn to it. She answers several FAQs such as what the difference is between THC and CBD, how to be sure that the CBD that you buy is good quality, what the effects and side effects are of CBD, whether or not CBD can have a negative impact on pregnant women, if it’s possible to fail a drug test if you’re taking CBD, if drinking alcohol and taking CBD together can interact with each other in a negative way, and so much more! She also closes the episode with a couple of actionable tips that you can put into effect today if, after listening to this episode, you’re thinking of giving CBD a try!
It’s so important, however, that, if you’re thinking about giving CBD a try, you know how it works and how to use it properly, so I hope that Maia’s wealth of knowledge has been helpful! As always, I would really love it if you would rate, review, and subscribe to the podcast if you haven’t already, and I would also really appreciate it if you would share the episode with a few people who might benefit from learning more about how CBD works and what the benefits are of it! Also, feel free to tag me and Equilibria in your Instagram stories to let us know that you listened and/or to let us know what was especially insightful or helpful for you! Until next time!
