A CBD Primer

You have discovered the marvel of CBD Oil and want to share it with the world, but your attempts seem to fall on deaf ears. Does this sound familiar? You might expect that friends and family would be the easiest to convince of the benefits of this wonder substance, but for some reason, you find it difficult to broach the subject. Before you talk with your friend or family member, it’s important to take time to consider your “audience” so you can make the most of your opportunity. As Edmond Mbiaka said, “Mutual understanding is the main backbone of every happy relationship.”

Understanding Who Can Benefit

Recent legalization has led to many more studies on CBD Oil and its uses. Through these studies, we’ve discovered a multitude of conditions that may benefit from its use. Just a few examples are:

  • Pain and inflammation associated with Gout, Arthritis and Cancer
  • Stress and Anxiety
  • PTSD
  • Recovery from strenuous exercise
  • Addiction
  • Epilepsy
  • Digestive disorders
  • ADD and ADHD, and
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Friends and family are often unaware of the relief that may be experienced with the use of CBD Oil. Learning of its aid in your personal experience can go a long way toward their betterment.

Understanding Opinions vs. Facts

Facts about CBD are easily available from many sources, but that doesn’t mean your friend will seek that knowledge on their own. Speaking from experience and having the facts on hand is helpful when talking with others, but their prior opinion has been shown to have much more influence than you might expect.

When a person is presented with information, there is a tendency toward confirmation bias. That’s the tendency to notice, look out for and remember things that agree with opinions you already hold.

For more than eight decades, some or all Cannabis products were illegal in the United States. That alone heavily influences many opinions about CBD because “illegal” is often considered synonymous with “bad.” Even if your friend doesn’t feel they have an opinion, simply having an impression one way or the other can strongly influence their receptiveness. Recognizing that a barrage of facts may not be useful and that change begins with opinions will help set the atmosphere for communication.

How To Argue CBD Oil

A study by Kristin Laurin of the University of British Columbia showed that people tend to rationalize things they feel stuck with. This can include medical conditions, especially those that are considered chronic. Therefore, arguing facts about CBD and related medical conditions may feel like an attack on that person, making them defensive of their existing opinion.

Exercising patience and fostering a healthy relationship with your friend or family member is perhaps the most likely way to both introduce and educate about CBD. Leading by example is still one of the most effective ways to change others’ opinions. CBDMN is your online source for Cannesota CBD products and information about its uses and safety.
