What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a cannabinoid found in the cannabis sativa plant and it is an increasingly popular natural remedy. With the passage of the 2018 Farm bill, Hemp is now legal in the U.S, and products containing CBD can now be sold with certain with restrictions on marketing and medical claims.
CBD is only one of more than 100 cannabinoids in the cannabis sativa plant. Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is another cannabinoid. THC is the compound in cannabis that causes a high, or mind-altering effect. Unlike THC, CBD will not get you high. This is one of the reasons that legalizing hemp has made CBD very popular.
People take CBD orally as CBD oil, or in gummies, gel caps, and topical CBD products are available for pain relief, and other topical skin lotions or cosmetic products, and CBD can be smoked using vape equipment or by smoking HEMP flowers.
CBD products will not get you high.
Commercially available products containing CBD will not get you high. By law all products containing CBD must contain less than 0.3% THC.
evidence exists that CBD can help support the human system to relieve inflammation and chronic pain, reduce stress and anxiety, help people sleep more soundly, and there is an FDA approved drug, Epidiolex which is approved for the treatment of seizures.
