CBD and Prescription Drugs: A Comparison

Often our customers come in searching for relief from the conditions that are making them uncomfortable. One thing we have recognized at Hempire is the cognitive dissonance that arises when we compare CBD to the pharmaceuticals most of us are familiar with. Below are some differences between the two that you may find interesting.

You can't take "too much" CBD:

No one in the history of CBD has ever overdosed or taken enough to cause serious damage. When you compare these statistics to those of prescription drugs the numbers are staggering. According to results from the 2017 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, an estimated 2 million Americans misused prescription pain relievers for the first time within the past year, which averages to approximately 5,480 initiates per day. No such thing happens with CBD.

You cannot get addicted:

Considering the statistics stated above, our customers are wary of long term use and proper dosage - as they should be! Take it from us, you will not get addicted to your CBD product, especially considering how studies show CBD actually helps those looking to quit their bad habits.

CBD is natural, Big Pharma is synthetic:

As we speak, labs are working to create a synthetic version of what already occurs naturally in hemp. Do you think it's doable? Here at Hempire we believe that nature is always the answer. The more untouched and natural the products we put in our bodies, the better. We encourage those struggling with pain and discomfort to see what nature may be able to do for them.

CBD works with you - not for you or against you:

What does this mean? One way we explain it to our customers is that opposed to the way pharmaceuticals manipulate and change the body, CBD has a much more gentle approach. The nature of CBD works to balance the nervous system and to chip away at inflammation to help your body find homeostasis
