Tamra Judge and Eddie Judge have a big project in the works: Vena Wellness is debuting this week. That would be their new business aimed at promoting health through CBD products. (The Real Housewives of Orange County viewers know that Eddie has faced his fair share of heart-health obstacles in the past year, and is now on the mend.)
Ahead of their big launch, the couple has been sharing pre-launch tidbits on Instagram, where they are also taking the time to engage with many fans' and followers' questions about CBD. While some of the questions may sound naive to experienced CBD users, the couple took time out to answer patiently and helpfully. Here are some of the condensed questions and answers.
What is CBD?
CBD (or cannabidiol) is one of over 85 cannabidinoids found in cannabis. CBD is present in more significant quantities in hemp than it is in marijuana. And because it's non-psychoactive, CBD is widely regarded to possess incredible health potential. —Tamra
Does this help with anxiety?
That's why I use it. —Tamra
Does CBD oil show up in corporate drug testing?
Great question. Only if corporate testing is for CBD. Most companies will test for THC and our product has 0 percent THC. There's no psychedelic effects using our CBD. —Eddie
Is it OK to take with heart medication? I have an issue similar to afib (atrial-fibrillation) like Eddie. Do you use without issues, Eddie?
I waited until I was better and then I stared CBD. Only because I wanted to make sure it works and not mix it with other meds... I'm off heart meds so I'm now using CBD. Keep working on your Afib. It can be fixed.
