I’m fairly surprised to see both of my grandparents so supportive of cannabis these days, even if it’s mostly just their opinion regarding CBD by itself.
It’s a step in the right direction, that’s for sure.
For years they considered everything related to the marijuana plant to be troublesome and immoral. They threw my father out at 17 for catching him smoking a joint in the basement with his girlfriend at the time. He struggled a lot in those early years and didn’t manage to get to college as a result. He had to get a job immediately to afford a place to live, but it ironically forced him to move in with his drug dealer. Instead of making their son quit using drugs to come home, they put him in the clutches of the person supplying the whole west end of the city with the drug they hated the most. With all of this history in my family’s past, you can understand why I would be shocked hearing about my grandparents changing their stance on the marijuana plant. They’re the last people on Earth that I expected to come around and start using cannabinoids like CBD and CBG. Not only that, but my grandparents also know the difference between full spectrum and broad spectrum CBD oil. I overheard them telling their friends in the kitchen the other day that they should change their CBD supplier so they could get oil with more cannabinoids and terpenes inside. The broad spectrum oils are usually just pure CBD with a few other minor doses of other cannabinoids. On the other hand, sometimes full spectrum CBD oils have tiny amounts of THC inside.
