What is CBD

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid (chemical compound) found in the hemp plant that provides immense health value. It is nature’s perfect remedy and alternative to dangerous pharmaceuticals.

CBD is known to provide a number of positive benefits:

  • Reduced inflammation, improving pain and swelling for people with problems like arthritis and fibromyalgia
  • Increased relaxation and ability to fall asleep
  • Reduced anxiety and depression
  • Improved sociability
  • Improved concentration
  • Improved digestion

What are the Benefits of CBD?

You may wonder, “What is CBD Good For?”. There has been much research on the positive effects of CBD. One of the best findings that researchers have discovered is the link between CBD and the endocannabinoid system (ECS).

The ECS, a unique communications system in the brain and body, works to maintain our health in tandem with our immune system and nervous system. Many factors can cause our ECS system to function improperly, including stress, environmental factors, and pollution, and thus cause our other systems to begin to malfunction. CBD works by helping to restore balance and function to the endocannabinoid system (ECS) and thus bringing balance back to our bodies.

Some of the things that CBD is most commonly used to treat include:

  • Various forms of pain, both chronic and acute
  • Anxiety, depression, and other mental health problems
  • Arthritis and other inflammatory conditions
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Cancer
  • Various diseases of the intestinal tract like IBS and Crohn’s disease
  • And much more

Is CBD Legal?

Since CBD is non-psychoactive, it is treated differently than THC, which is a psychoactive cannabinoid.

In December 2018, President Trump signed the Farm Bill of 2018 into law. This law legalizes the production of hemp CBD, a form of cannabis with lower THC levels that marijuana, as well as the sale of CBD in all US states.

In addition, the FDA recently approved Epidiolex – a CBD oral-mucosal spray produced by GW Pharmaceuticals – for use in the treatment of intractable seizure disorders. This product has set a new precedent for the medical value of CBD.

Is CBD Weed?

No. Marijuana and Hemp are both part of the cannabis family. Depending on how the plant is bred dictates whether it is considered marijuana or hemp. Marijuana is bred with higher levels of THC, which makes it psychoactive. Hemp is a cross breed of the plant to have higher CBD and minimal THC.

How is CBD different than THC?

CBD tends to deliver very clear-headed, functional effects without the euphoric high associated with THC. They’re typically preferred by consumers who are extremely sensitive to the side effects of THC (e.g. anxiety, paranoia, dizziness).

CBD strain is a great choice for someone needing to medicate throughout the day to control pain, inflammation, anxiety, or other chronic conditions.

How is CBD Made?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of 113 cannabinoids (chemical compound) unique to the hemp plant. Hemp is defined as a cannabis plant with less than 0.3% THC. Because of these low levels of THC, CBD is non-psychoactive. CBD is produced from the leaves and flowers of the female hemp plant.

What is CBD Cream?

CBD Cream, also known as CBD Topical Cream, is a topical form of CBD usually in a salve or lotion formulation that is applied to an affected area of the skin, muscle, or joints. Topical CBD is concentrated to one area versus CBD oil, vapes, and edibles, which are spread throughout the body via the bloodstream. This makes CBD topicals highly effective.

What is CBD Oil?

CBD Oil, also known as CBD Tincture is a popular type of CBD product because of its high bioavailability (how fast it works) and rapid absorption. It is usually administered orally by placing drops under the tongue. We offer both low and high doses of CBD oil for both pain and anxiety.

What are CBD Edibles or CBD Capsules?

CBD edibles and CBD capsulesare a widespread type of CBD product that come in many forms including gummies, caramels, chocolate, ice cream, coffee, etc. These are ideal for people who prefer swallowing versus other forms of administration. CBD edibles offer an easy and discreet way to insert CBD into your daily routine. We offer both full-spectrum gummies (great for inflammation and anxiety) and an isolate gummy (no THC, and works just as great as the full-spectrum gummy). We also offer two types of CBD capsules: one is a daily capsule to manage pain and anxiety throughout the course of a day; the other is a fast-acting relief capsule for those days when you need something more!

What is the Right Amount of CBD For Me?

CBD differs from most prescription medication and supplements, in that there is no single recommended dose. The amount of CBD you take will depend on your own unique needs. Our recommendation is to start small and increase your dosage as needed. CBD has no known side-effects. There have been no recorded deaths from CBD, and it is not possible to overdose. Though if you do take too much, you may feel drowsy. CBD is also not addictive. If you do take prescription drugs, please talk to your doctor prior to using CBD.
