CBD Wellness

  It’s understandable if you’re curious about CBD and want to know why people use CBD products. After all, to the casual observer, CBD has exploded in recent months from specialty-store-only items sold in brown paper bags to an ingredient seemingly available in every product imaginable wherever you go. The truth is that industrial hemp-derived CBD oil has been steadily converting the curious into CBD evangelists thanks to its ability to promote better overall health and wellness. 



What is CBD?

  CBD (cannabidiol is the official name) is the naturally occurring, non-addictive compound in the hemp plant, part of the group known as cannabinoids. CBD does not produce a euphoric "high" - instead it functions as an analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and commonly reduces pain and anxiety. It is a natural and healthy ingredient meant to supplement the ever changing recipe that is your life.

Hemp Vs CBD?

The real scoop

 

Hemp and marijuana come from the same plant species, cannabis sativa.  Therefore, when someone says “cannabis,” it can refer to either hemp or marijuana.


Cannabis sativa produces chemicals unique to the plant called cannabinoids.  Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD) are two types of cannabinoids produced by hemp and marijuana plants.


THC is considered a Schedule 1 drug by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).  THC is an intoxicating substance with psychological effects such as “getting high.” Marijuana can contain up to 30% THC.  Some states have legalized marijuana for personal, recreational use or for medical use.

Hemp is different from marijuana in its function, cultivation and application.  Hemp has a wide range of uses including food, clothing, paper, rope and other industrial uses.


On December 20, 2018, the Government signed The Federal Farm Bill into law.  For the first time, the law defined hemp as an agricultural product.  It legalized industrial hemp with non-detectable THC (less than 0.3%) and removed CBD from the Controlled Substances Act.  The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for CBD regulation.


It is important to note that CBD is non-psychoactive.  In other words, you cannot get “stoned” taking CBD. Hemp plants produce more CBD than THC, while marijuana plants produce more THC than CBD.  


Research has shown that CBD acts to reduce the psychoactive effects of THC, separating hemp further from marijuana. CBD sourced from industrial hemp is legal across the United States when sold as a dietary supplement.
