What is CBD?

Jun 16th 2020

It’s no joke that Hemp and CBD are all the talk right now. Whether it’s online or on the news, it’s everywhere. So, what is Hemp and why is its main cannabinoid CBD so awesome?

Cannabidiol is a chemical compound that is found in the cannabis plant. This compound is naturally occurring, and it is used in many different kinds of products, such as our Full-Spectrum CBD Oils. CBD causes a relaxing and calm feeling when ingested unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) which is psychoactive.

Wait, what? CBD isn’t psychoactive? Yes, that is correct! A cannabis plant is made up of many different compounds known as cannabinoids, but today we are focusing on CBD and THC. CBD is the part of the plant that is non-psychoactive which means that you won’t feel any euphoric effects. Sounds pretty great, right?

You may find when shopping through our products that some include THC up to 0.3%. Under the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp was made federally legal to grow. Meaning that consumers can grow and use hemp products as long as they are compliant with their state. With that said, our products are legal and safe to consume throughout the United States! Also, don’t worry about the 0.3% THC. This is not enough to give psychoactive effects but may show positive on a urinalysis test.

Now that we’ve gone over the basics of Hemp and Cannabidiol, let’s go into the benefits of this wonderful substance. Although CBD has not been approved by the FDA (our 3rd Party Lab Reports show all of the compounds in our products), many have claimed to feel different types of benefits from its usage, including myself! Some of these benefits include less back, joint, and nerve pain, minimal anxiety, improved mood, relaxation, and better sleep.

Because it is not approved by the FDA, it is hard to confirm these claims. But, with many different reviews from a handful of customers, it is worth giving a try. If you are experiencing pain and use many different types of medications and looking to try an alternative route, Hemp and CBD might be for you!

Please consult with a physician before use if you have a serious medical condition or use prescription medications. A Doctor’s advice should be sought before using this and any supplemental dietary product.
