What Is CBD?
CBD is cannabidiol, an organic compound found in hemp, a variety of the cannabis sativa plant. (Compounds are the building blocks of cells and organisms that perform life processes. Water and carbon are two of the most abundant compounds!)
Does CBD Get You High?
CBD does not get you high, like the more well-known cannabis compound, THC.
Hemp and marijuana are both forms of the cannabis plant, but hemp is usually grown for industrial or health and wellness while marijuana is grown for recreational reasons. Hemp has more CBD, marijuana has more THC.
Is CBD Legal?
Both medical and recreational cannabis were illegal until the ‘90s, when laws started catching up to changing attitudes.
CBD was fully legalized on a federal level by the Farm Bill of 2018, which made it legal to use CBD, grown with lots of special rules so it’s safe for you! The only exceptions are Idaho, Iowa, and South Dakota, which have their own state restrictions.
How Does CBD Work?
CBD works by engaging the body’s endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is a biological system in the human body, just like the nervous system or respiratory system.
CBD may be able to support pain relief, ease tension, and help with sleep issues.
CBD is well-tolerated by the human body, with minimal side effects.
Avoid CBD if you’re on blood thinners and make sure to consult your doctor about interactions with all medications.
