Hey Chansce, my knowledge of pot can basically be summed up as someone would pass me a joint at a concert and I would smoke it. I know a lot has changed since then (I’m not a dinosaur, but I am also not getting any younger). Can you tell me a little bit about the current state of the industry? I have heard it’s a lot more than just getting high. – Erin, Palm Springs

The cannabis industry across the world has endured many eras of prohibition and stigma, and the vast majority of the negative view on cannabis stems from massive amounts of misinformation.

One of the largest misconceptions with the current cannabis industry is that every cannabis based product is meant to provide a psychoactive or “high” effect. In the past 20 years, there have been massive amounts of studies on the fascinating cannabinoid CBD. CBD is a compound that naturally grows in cannabis, and is a perfect option for folks dealing with inflammation, body pain, anxiety, depression, epilepsy or other neurological disorders, and so much more. CBD is a great solution for those that are always on-the-go, or simply don’t have any interest in a stoned effect.

The Leaf offers a wide variety of CBD based products – you will be able to find CBD based topicals, edibles, flower, beverages, and beyond. Drop by our beautiful store on El Paseo and connect with our highly educated staff to find the solution that best fits your lifestyle.
