The popularity of CBD is continuing to grow and even more people are beginning to consider its potential health benefits. It’s important to look at all of the different forms of consumption and how they impact your health.
When you’re visiting your local smoke shop or gas station you may see everything from CBD gummies to flower, pre-rolls, topicals, and beverages. Your body absorbs the CBD in these products at different rates. Depending on your method of consumption, the impact on your body differs. The question remains: “is CBD bad for you?” If we’re comparing it to tobacco, nicotine, and pharmaceuticals, then the answer is significantly less-so.
The positives may outweigh the negatives when it comes to consuming CBD. There are a host of benefits that smoking, vaping, eating, or drinking CBD may provide. The main difference with these different forms of consumption is the amount of time it takes for your body to absorb the cannabinoid compounds. Many new companies out there aren’t taking the time to keep their products as clean and health-conscious as possible. Since you can’t overdose on CBD, the only culprits of it being “bad” for you are the materials used to make the products.
Our bodies are made to receive cannabinoids through our endocannabinoid system. This system extends into our central nervous system out into our peripheral nervous system, and even our immune system. CBD binds to our endocannabinoid receptors to potentially benefit cancer, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, seizures, and even acne. Other controlled substances such as alcohol and tobacco do not help with any of these conditions at all.
We’ll break down category-by-category what products might be bad for you from the ingredients they use to who makes them. Respect My Region’s new line of hemp CBD products are all-natural, rigorously tested, and exceed all food-grade standards where applicable. If you’re wondering “is CBD bad for you?” We have answers.
Smoking CBD flower is one of the fastest ways to feel the effects of CBD. By absorption through the lungs, the effects might be felt almost instantly. The only problem is the use of carcinogens to achieve this. Although it may be one of the quickest routes to relief, smoking CBD flower is arguably the only dangerous way to consume. Aside from the use of fire, smoking CBD might be bad for you if the quality of the flower you’re smoking is poor. Respect My Region’s all-natural high CBD pre-rolls have a sweet flavor and are completely pesticide-free. Our two .7 g pre-rolls have an even smoke that doesn’t feel harsh on the lungs.
CBD edibles take a little longer to kick in but might be more beneficial for those seeking more long-term effects. Depending on what the edibles are made of, they might be bad for you from a health standpoint. Many CBD gummies you can find at your local gas station or corner store use excessive dye, sugar, and gelatin. Many of these products are as unhealthy as candy to consume and are made of the same ingredients. They may also have low potency from the flower used to make the hemp oil. Respect My Region’s full-spectrum gummies are vegan, gluten-free, gelatin-free, and actually taste great.
There are a wide array of CBD tinctures out there that claim cleanliness and effectiveness but don’t deliver. Isolate and broad-spectrum tinctures may offer some form of relief, but don’t encourage the entourage effect. This is the idea that all the compounds in the plant may work together to produce a more unique and healing effect. Respect My Region’s full-spectrum tinctures are made with three specific blends of CBD oil and essential oils that encourage the entourage effect.
Our tinctures have 1000 mg of full-spectrum CBD oil and essential oils such as lavender and chamomile that help either Boost, Refresh, or Chill out your day. No dyes or additives necessary. And if cleanliness is your concern, our partners at M6 Labs test all of our products over three times throughout production and maintain commercial food-grade standards. As a vertically-integrated company, they’re able to maintain quality control at every tier of production.
CBD has been shown to produce anti-inflammatory effects, which may be extremely beneficial to those with sore muscles. Easing muscle tension is one of the most popular uses for cannabidiol. To more accurately target a tense or sore area, you may want to look into CBD topicals. Anything under 500 mg of full-spectrum CBD though might not really do the trick though. It’s not unsafe or unhealthy to apply a lower dosage topical made from an isolate or broad-spectrum. But, it may not have as many healing benefits without the addition of less than 0.3% THC.
Respect My Region’s Pain Relief Roll-On Stick might be your new favorite post-workout tool. This roll-on stick cools, then heats, using 500 mg of full-spectrum CBD that’s rich in phytocannabinoids. A full-spectrum blend may penetrate deeper into the muscles and produce a more healing effect.

Available online anywhere in the U.S., you’re now able to find reliable full-spectrum CBD products that have the health-conscious consumer in mind.
