What is CBD?
Cannabidiol or CBD, is a naturally occurring compound found in cannabis, used for centuries as medicine for many ailments.
A safe, non-addictive substance, CBD is one of more than a hundred “phytocannabinoids,” which are unique to cannabis and endow the plant with its robust therapeutic profile. Unlike its cousin tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it’s not psychoactive.
The fact that CBD is therapeutically potent as well as non-intoxicating makes it an appealing treatment option for those who are cautious about trying cannabis for the first time.
How does CBD work?
Cannabidiol can be taken into the body in multiple ways, such as CBD oils, tinctures, edibles, gummies, etc. It may be supplied as CBD oil containing only CBD as the active ingredient (no added tetrahydrocannabinol- THC). CBD does not have the same psychoactive properties as THC and does not cause mind-altering effects.
CBD and THC interact with our bodies in a variety of ways. One of the main ways they impact us is by mimicking and augmenting the effects of the compounds in our bodies called “endogenous cannabinoids” – so named because of their similarity to the compounds found in the cannabis plant. These “endocannabinoids” are part of a regulatory system called the “endocannabinoid system”. The discovery of our bodies’ endocannabinoid system has significantly advanced our understanding of health and disease and plays a crucial role in regulating a broad range of physiological processes that affect our everyday experience – our mood, our energy level, our intestinal fortitude, immune activity, blood pressure, bone density, glucose metabolism, how we experience pain, stress, hunger, and more.
Is CBD Legal?
Yes! Under the 2014 and the recently passed 2018 Farm Bill, CBD derived from Hemp, that has less than 0.3% THC by dry weight, is
federally legal. Our products comply within these guidelines. We also offer THC-Free Isolate CBD Oil for an alternative option.
