The topic of CBD has increased over the years. We know CBD is used for alleviating symptoms such as chronic pain, inflammation, anxiety, insomnia and many other symptoms. There is so much to learn about CBD but one fact many don’t know is, CBD is very much safe for children.
CBD is non-psychoactive, it does not get users high, it’s nonaddictive, and it has a low risk of side effects—which makes it completely safe for children.
Cannabinoids and endocannabinoids occur naturally in the body, and children are exposed to external cannabinoids quite frequently. In fact, human breast milk is an abundant source of endocannabinoids, which assist with infant development. Now you are probably wondering why children might need to use CBD?
Studies show that CBD is an extremely potent anticonvulsant and can help manage severe forms of childhood epilepsy and ADD/ADHD.
Anti-seizure medications for example, can produce drowsiness, fatigue, behavioral changes, and more. ADD/ADHD medications on the other hand can cause nervousness, agitation, anxiety, sleep problems, nausea, vomiting, and other side effects.
It’s not uncommon for some children dealing with these conditions to use multiple medications at a time, usually to manage the side effects of another medication they may be taking. CBD on the other hand serves as a natural alternative with no side effects and does not cause long term complications.
CBD is also capable in alleviating less serious conditions, not to mention it’s a great supplement to keep your child in good health in a natural way. If you’re giving CBD oil to your child for general supplementation purposes, you can expect the following benefits such as improved focus, better memory, higher alertness, better quality of sleep and boosted immune function.
It can be complicated trying to give your child medicine, which is why we have CBD infused gummies! They have an amazing flavor that your kids will absolutely enjoy taking. CBD is safe for children, adults and even our furry friends, although we do recommend a smaller dose for children. At AHS we strive to provide education first before selling a product, so our customers feel confident in what they are putting into their bodies.
