You may be asking yourself, what’s CBD got to do with Raving and Innovation? Now because the men in suits who govern this country, for one reason or another will not let us say what the benefits of CBD are, we can’t actually tell you!

So what can we tell you about CBD? Well… You would have to have been living under a rock for the past year not to have noticed the growing mania for CBD. It’s everywhere: in the media, online, Facebook, Insta, Snapchat etc. It’s being written about in the press, reported on the evening news and sold on the high street.

We know that cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound found in the resinous flower of cannabis, a plant with a rich history as a medicine going back thousands of years. We also know that CBD is not addictive and does not create a high like its better-known relative marijuana does.We also know that people use CBD for its reported health benefits (again, we can’t actually tell you what those benefits are because it’s against the current laws for us to do so, but you can google it yourself to find out!).

Now back to CBD and Raving.. Picture this! You’re in the Rave, the music is booming, bass lines reverberating up and down your body, you’ve lost your mates, your jaws got a life of its own, the walls are closing in and you can’t find the smoking area in this maze of a venue! We’ve all known someone who has felt like that in the middle of what should be one of the best nights of their life! You know, those times when it all gets a bit too much, and you’re not sure if you’re ever going to feel like yourself again! It can be an intense, emotional and unpleasant experience.

Now we are not saying that vaping CBD would calm you down and alleviate these feelings. Or that CBD can help to balance out the effects of the psycho-active chemical THC, contained in its close relative marijuana. But what we can tell you is that we think vaping CBD and Raving go well together, and that you will be able to purchase CBD filled vape pens at every Innovation event and also online from May onwards. Enjoy!
