Understanding CBD and Its Benefits

CBD, or Cannabidiol, has made a name for itself in the world of natural medicine. But what exactly is it and how can it impact our health?  

As the second most prevalent of the active ingredients in cannabis, a lot of people have questions about the uses and side effects of CBD. CBD is derived directly from the Hemp plant, which contains much higher levels of CBD than a Marijuana plant would. Like all phytocannabinoids, CBD works by directly and indirectly stimulating your Endocannabinoid System (ECS). CBD alone has no psychoactive effects – meaning it will not cause a “high,” but it is well known for its calming, soothing effects that are often experienced as relaxing and beneficial for mitigating pain.

So Why is CBD so Popular? 

As more and more people begin to use CBD, we are learning about the many and various health benefits it offers to patients from all walks of life and with all manner of ailments or conditions. Using CBD has been proven to aid in pain management, help with anxiety relief, and even boost your immune system. Further research on potential health benefits of CBD is ongoing, and while there is still so much to learn, the therapeutic uses for CBD are undeniable. 

How Do We Get CBD?

Before the passing of the Farm Bill of 2018, the federal government defined hemp as only being relevant to the stalk, seeds, and fibers of the plant. Everything else in the plant, including CBD, was still classified as Marijuana, which is still considered an illegal controlled substance. Because of this bill, advocates were able to amend the definition of hemp and tap into all the benefits it provides, including CBD oil. Not only are we now able to expand our uses of the plant, but we can legally allow the commercial and industrial cultivation of hemp, and transfer it across state lines (even if it’s illegal in that state.)
