What is Cannabidiol?
Cannabidiol (or CBD) is one of the main cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. Unlike THC, CBD is non-psychoactive and does not get you “high”.
Since the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, CBD has become very popular and commonplace, and can be found in everyday products such as oils, edibles, and topicals!
How is CBD Made?
One of the main questions people might ask is “How is CBD Made?” Well CBD, like THC, is derived directly from the cannabis plant. There are a variety of ways to extract it and can be used to make a variety of products. From topical to pills, CBD has taken over the wellness industry, and we are excited to be a part of this alternative lifestyle movement.
Our main mission is to provide CBD education which helps you to get guidance about The CBD Products. CBD or known by its scientific name Cannabidiol is just 1 of the 113 compounds identified in the Cannabis plant. Within the Cannabis plant, there are 2 main compounds known as THC and CBD. While THC makes up for mood-altering and is known to make you feel “high” CBD is non-psychoactive but depending on which form of CBD can still give you what’s called “the entourage effect”. Many consumers and medical patients claim relief from anxiety, insomnia, inflammation, and other health benefits.
Is CBD a Cannabinoid?
To break it down even further, CBD interacts with the human body through the endocannabinoid system that interacts with many other similar compounds producing effects on the mind and body. Our body has 2 known CBD receptors: Cb1 which is found in the brain and Cb2 found mostly in the immune system. CBD activates our adenosine receptors which can result in lower levels of stress and anxiety. It can also bind to our neural receptors which control temperature and inflammation in the body producing an anti-inflammatory effect.
Although CBD hasn’t been approved by the FDA as of yet, research has shown that CBD has a safe profile in humans and even pets. Some use it to assist with anxiety, psychosis, and movement disorders. Although unregulated by the FDA it is still legal in all 50 states. We encourage our customers to check that their CBD has been inspected by a third-party independent lab with a provided Certificate of Analysis (COA).
