What is CBD?
How CBD Works?
Although still highly regulated, the 2018 Farm Bill legalized the cultivation, processing and distribution of industrial hemp for commercial purposes. Defined as a cannabis sativa plant containing not more than 0.3-percent THC, industrial hemp was removed from the list of Schedule 1 controlled substances and is now categorized as an agricultural commodity.
Hemp-derived cannabinoid or CBD oil is non-psychoactive and does not cause psychotropic or euphoric effects. Proponents claim it can soothe anxiety, build immunity, reduce stress, relieve pain and combat insomnia without getting consumers high.* CBD can be found in everything from moisturizers, lattes and vitamins to cookies, gummies, teas, beer, ice cream, massage oils and dog treats. CBD is non-psychoactive, non-toxic, and taps into the receptors in the human endocannabinoid system- a vast network of receptors that help maintain the body’s overall wellness and support many physical processes.*
