What is CBD?
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of over 100 chemical compounds, known as cannabinoids, found in marijuana or hemp plants. Both hemp and marijuana are varieties of the cannabis plant, believed to have been among the first plants that humans cultivated. CBD is non-psychoactive and does not produce intoxication like marijuana's "high" caused by the chemical tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
CBD is a naturally occurring substance that's used in products to impart a feeling of relaxation and calm. It’s is an attractive option for people looking for relief from pain, and other symptoms, without the mind-altering effects of marijuana or some pharmaceutical drugs.
Is CBD legal?
The 2018 Farm Bill legalized hemp, but the legal status of hemp-derived cannabidiol remains in limbo. Marijuana-derived CBD products are illegal on the federal level, but are legal under some state laws. Hemp-derived CBD products (with less than 0.3 percent THC) are legal on the federal level, but are still illegal under some state laws.
With legalization efforts, medical science is gaining a much more detailed knowledge of cannabis effects and benefits.
What are the benefits of CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a natural remedy used for many common ailments including anxiety, depression, insomnia, acne, and heart disease. CBD can also help with epilepsy and may help reduce symptoms related to cancer and side effects related to cancer treatments.

In the last few years, there have been many advances in cannabis processing and consumption methods.
While there are many ways to take CBD, there's no one right or best way. Each method delivers CBD to your body in a different way. And every person also responds differently to CBD.
We recommended to start with a low dose to make sure you don’t react well to all the product’s ingredients. Many people benefit from tracking their progress. Creating a baseline record will help you judge the effectiveness of your CBD treatment.
Ask yourself what you want CBD to improve. Do you want mental support? Do you have a lot of pain? Are looking to optimize your daily health and wellness routine?
