What is CBD?
"Cannabidiol," also known as CBD does not have psychoactive effects and offers tremendous therapeutic benefits. Many individuals shy away from using CBD because they believe it has the same effects as THC, but this is a common misconception and you will not get "high."
Is CBD Legal?
The most important factor when determining CBD's legality is whether it is derived from hemp or marijuana and if it is produced by a state-licensed grower. With the 2018 Farm Bill that just passed, CBD derived from hemp is legal nationwide while marijuana-derived CBD differs state to state.
How Does CBD Work?
CBD is able to function in the human body because the human body comprises of receptors which bind to cannabinoids. This system is referred to as the endocannaboid system. This network of receptors is responsible for immune function and pain perception.
CBD is so effective that it neutralizes the effect of THC, the compound which makes cannabis users ‘high’. THC causes anxiety, depression and stress for some while CBD does the opposite.
