Although CBD has been around for close to 2000 years, it is a concept that is relatively new. The Chinese have been using it for time immemorial but it is only now that we are hearing of CBD products lining up on the aisle of pharmacies.
As of now close to 64 million people in America alone have had their hand at CBD products, and a majority of that number has anecdotal evidence of the benefits of CBD. For some, it is life-changing and has helped them better battle their illnesses- joint pain, sleeplessness, anxiety have all been curbed with the help of the miracle drug.
But since you know what all the fuss is about, how do you break the news of CBD to your parents? Or what if you want your parents to benefit from CBD therapy? There are a number of misconceptions on CBD that has prevented them from enjoying the experience, and it may be up to you to break down their wall of false assumptions. Here are a few ways in which you can do a better job of telling your parents about CBD…
You Have To Be Prepared
One of the worst things that can happen when you are telling your parents about CBD is to come empty and blank when they have a question for you. Remember that questions will be pouring in left, right and center, and it is up to you to be thoroughly prepared to answer them. You need to educate yourself on some of the commonly asked questions on CBD and cannabinoid products in general. Do online research and read through blogs from trusted and varied sources to get your information right.
What are the side effects? How can CBD help me with my problems? What can I be expecting from CBD use? Help them in answering these questions.
Be open and welcoming. Don’t be pushy and instead listen to respond and not react. Tempers may flare, but it is up to you to steer the conversation to the right place and track. Take the time to listen to their woes and concerns regarding CBD.
Make use of facts, research and data to substantiate your claims rather than sticking to hearsay- you will be able to do a better job in persuading them in thinking along your lines, and maybe even try out their hand at CBD. Rest assured once they make the jump, they won’t be disappointed.
