CBD use around Lubbock increasing in popularity as medical alternative

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - As people become more aware of what they are putting into their bodies, they are turning to natural products to cure their symptoms.

A natural solution that is becoming popular in Lubbock is CBD, or cannabidiol.

Jennifer Diaz is the owner of American Shaman of Lubbock and said CBD is compressed out of the cannabis plant and put into products such as gummies and oils to consume.

She said it helps with things such as ADHD, depression, migraines, anxiety and stress.

Diaz said a lot of people don’t know they have cannabinoids already in their system. She said it depends on how well the cannabinoids are working. “CBD and our cannabinoids work like a key and a lock. The CBD opens it up and helps your body do what it’s supposed to be naturally already doing."

Audrey Stowe started using CBD a year and a half ago when she started experiencing anxiety. “There were days I would wake up and immediately just freak out. I was just so stressed that all I wanted to do was lay in my bed, or just sulk.”

Stowe said taking CBD in her coffee or under her tongue every few days has helped her experience relief from anxiety. “I’ve been completely fine, my anxiety like does not happen very much anymore. I love it. It’s really awesome to watch it work for other people too.”

Diaz said a lot of people assume CBD is the illegal marijuana plant. “That is not the case, we have no THC in our products. CBD is actually the healthy part to the plant. You can’t fail a drug test with our products.”

It is recommended you consult a doctor before trying CBD.
