CBD (cannabidiol) has become a widely popular derivative of the hemp plant/cannabis plant (cannabis). To hugely oversimplify it: when you smoke cannabis, you are feeling the effects of two main cannabinoids. THC is the psychoactive component-- the part that makes you "high." CBD is the more understated and bodily component, providing potential pain and anxiety relief, among many others.
THC is why cannabis is illegal on the federal level. CBD, on the other hand, is entirely legal in all 50 states.
CBD does NOT get you high.
That is a common misconception. Its effects are subtle, non-intrusive, and work in the background.
In other words, it may relieve pain, reduce inflammation, soothe muscle soreness, improve mood, calm anxiety, heighten cognition, and much more-- without any psychoactive effects.
Those who take Full Spectrum CBD will tell you the only thing you will feel is that your symptoms are relieved. Don't expect a "buzz." Expect relief.
CBD or cannabidiol is derived from "hemp." Hemp is not the same as marijuana. To the untrained eye, the two plants look nearly the same. Both are considered cannabis-- but their morphology, chemical makeup, and uses are very different. Hemp is a strain specifically grown primarily devoid of the intoxicating compounds found in marijuana.
You will often see the phrase "industrial hemp" because hemp can be used to make various industrial products. Paper, textiles, clothing, shoes, food, rope, bioplastics, insulation, and biofuel can all be made with hemp.
Benefits of CBD
Hemp's versatility is pretty miraculous, especially for the endocannabinoid system. And given that it is totally legal in the US, these uses can all be explored to their fullest potential with complete legal compliance. This also means that it can be fully and comprehensively regulated.
Therefore, when you buy a product infused with CBD (and there are MANY), you can rest assured that a reputable third party has regulated it for safety, purity, and potency.
These certifications are available to the public for nearly all CBD Oil products, and you should always look for proof that its production has been regulated. We are very vigilant in assuring our products are vetted and safe. We encourage your vigilance with anything you put in your body, CBD or not.
Effects of CBD
That's not to say CBD is risky-- quite the opposite. CBD is regarded as one of the most natural and safe remedies for the mind and body, with little to no side effects. It is entirely non-addictive, non-habit-forming, and works naturally in your body to provide non-intrusive and potentially comprehensive relief.
You can ingest CBD in many forms, such as:
Oral Concentrates: the most potent form of ingestion. This includes tinctures (a viscous fluid dropped sublingually), oral sprays, and drink mixtures, to name a few.
Edibles: are also very popular, such as infused gummy candy and chocolate. See our full line of CBD Gummies.
Skincare: utilizes CBD in lotions, balms, salves, and more to provide nourishing and soothing relief to the skin.
Haircare: including shampoos and conditioners to invigorate your hair with hemp and leave it radiant and healthy.
Pet products: so your furry little friends can enjoy all of the same benefits you can. This includes tinctures, oral sprays, and treats-- all the same human products formulated specifically for pets.
