10 Awesome CBD memes You Need To See

We’re all constantly bombarded with information every day, especially when we get online. It comes in the form of flashy, loud advertisements, it shows up as clickbait and propaganda, and it comes in droves from the multitude of social media platforms that divert our attention so regularly. Sometimes it’s awesome because we learn about all kinds of things that we wouldn’t have seen otherwise (like this awesome little bong). Sometimes it’s a little too much, and sometimes it’s downright annoying. Whether it’s for better or for worse, there are some parts of the internet we just can’t get away from.

One of these ever-present things is CBD. We see it in gummies, we find it in joints, we eat it in chocolate bars, we put it in our pet’s food - the list goes on. Whether you’re a daily user or have never gotten near it, there’s practically no way you haven’t heard of CBD at this point (and it’s not popular without good reason, but we’ll get there in a minute).

Another part of the internet that you’re sure to know by now is memes. They’re practical, almost literally, everywhere. They’re on social media, on websites, in ads, in video games, and probably in your day-to-day life at this point. But what exactly are memes and why are they found in every facet of modern life? We’ll break down the basics of CBD and memes so you can have the best CBD memes in your back pocket for your next social media excursion.

What is CBD?

You’ve probably heard about CBD oil from your friends, your brother, your mom, your aunt, her best friend, her best friend’s sister, and their cat. Ok, maybe not the cat, but it would hardly be surprising at this point. They’ve claimed CBD products can handle everything from pain relief to world peace. You want to believe them (well, some of them), but it’s hard to know what to believe anymore. 

Here it is in a nutshell: cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of the main components produced by cannabis plants, just like THC. However, CBD offers a wealth of helpful and healing properties that THC does not. Unlike THC, CBD won’t get you high - at all. It offers the healing benefits of cannabis without the buzz from THC. 

So what does CBD actually do?

CBD oil can offer a range of benefits to many different people. The most notable effects on your health are its ability to relieve pain, to reduce inflammation, and to improve sleep quality. It has also been shown to have anxiety-relieving properties, as well as mild sedative effects (partially accounting for its helpfulness with sleeping). While the effects of CBD oil may vary from person to person, you’re sure to find it helpful when dealing with aches or insomnia.

What about memes?

Although at this point “memes” are predominantly images that have been collectively used to portray certain attitudes or make niche jokes with consistent themes and overlaid text, the term “memes” was around before the internet even existed. Richard Dawkins coined the term in 1976 to describe behaviors or styles that are imitated and shared rapidly from person to person, and which carry some cultural, symbolic meaning because of this shared, communal nature. It makes sense, then, why we have adopted the term for these internet memes which spread so quickly and organically between us and carry important underlying meanings that are ascribed almost imperceptibly.

#1

 

Admit it: you sang this in your head. It’s just too perfect not to sing along with. This “Hello” CBD meme is one of the best to use when someone is consistently looking for new cures for their pain but have never tried CBD. Memes like this can help communicate in ways that words alone just can’t.

 

#2

Seriously though, it seems like CBD products can literally please everyone. And why shouldn’t they? Between pain relief and improved sleep, we’ve found it’s hard to take CBD and be in a foul mood. But just because you’re reaping all the benefits of these modern hemp innovations, don’t expect to be able to pass that energy onto everyone who comes your way. 

 

#3

If you’ve already found the many benefits of having a daily CBD product in your life, you’ll understand the mild frustration that fuels CBD memes such as this. It may not be a magic cure-all, but the relief in those vape pens you’ve been using is undeniable. Sometimes it takes a bit of encouragement and education to get naysayers on your side with something as new as CBD. Just keep a stiff upper lip and keep at it - you’ll reach them eventually, and they’ll be glad you did.

 

#4

Of course, while there are many dissenters who resist using CBD, there are just as many fans who go entirely too far with their praise of its healing powers. “Oh, you broke your leg? Try these gummies. Your dog ran away? Maybe a quick CBD dab will help. There’s a huge meteor headed right for the planet? Yo, you should try a CBD joint, that’ll take care of it.” You get the picture, and you probably know the type. 

 

#5

Whether it’s a miracle product or not, we’ve found CBD has the power to help us through some pretty rough days. Couple that with a healthy self-care routine and nothing will be able to get in your way. And if it tries to get in your way? Whip out these CBD memes, show it who's boss, and be on your way unscathed and unphased.

 

#6

Bad Luck Brian harkens back to ye olden days of memory when the culture was young and blossoming. Jokes aside, this is a seriously old school meme that has stood the test of time. It’s still out here getting new edits daily, and this one was too good to pass up. This funny CBD meme also makes a good point: CBD will not get you high (no matter what that one friend swears happened to him).

 

#7

Speaking of memes that make a good point, this is another classic that still finds popularity years after its creation. If you want the relief of marijuana but can’t afford to fail a surprise drug test, CBD is probably right for you. Most CBD oil will not cause you to show positive for THC on a drug test. However, some full-spectrum products do include a tiny percentage of THC that can show positively in some patients. If you absolutely need to be clean, make sure you search for products with 0% THC.

 

#8

We just couldn’t get away from the classics. South Park is loaded with memorable, quotable moments, but not many of them stuck quite as hard as this meme. And, yet again, it makes a great point: budget “CBD” is absolutely not all created equal, and a great deal of the “gas station hemp oil” variety products don’t even contain CBD! Hemp seed oil is cheaper than properly extracted CBD oil, and it can still be sold under the name of “hemp oil,” but it only contains some fatty acids - no cannabinoids whatsoever. Make sure to read labels any time you’re shopping for hemp products!

 

#9

 

One of the cooler developments in the world of hemp is the introduction of CBD into pet products. This “I love my CBD treats” meme is adorable, but it’s also probably accurate. Rover can enjoy the same pain-relieving, sleep-improving benefits that you receive from CBD.

Conclusion

The cultural roots of memes are more intricate and interesting than the simple, funny format might suggest. They’re the perfect medium for talking about CBD and sharing it with your friends and family (without having to dive into the same old heated debates). The next time you want to make a point about CBD without diving into an argument with someone, just break out the ol’ meme bank and you can make your point with a touch of humor to take the edge off of the conversation.
