What are the health benefits?

Many people are seeking alternatives to pharmaceuticals with harsh side effects – medicine more in synch with natural processes. CBD has proven neuroprotective effects and its anti-cancer properties are being investigated at several academic research centers in the United States and elsewhere.  By tapping into how we function biologically on a deeper level, CBD can provide relief for chronic pain, anxiety, inflammation, depression, and many other conditions. CBD and THC interact with our bodies in a variety of ways. One of the main ways they impact us is by mimicking and augmenting the effects of the compounds in our bodies called “endogenous cannabinoids” – so named because of their similarity to the compounds found in the cannabis plant. These “endocannabinoids” are part of a regulatory system called the “endocannabinoid system”. The endocannabinoid system plays a crucial role in regulating a broad range of physiological processes that affect our everyday experience – our mood, our energy level, our intestinal fortitude, immune activity, blood pressure, bone density, glucose metabolism, how we experience pain, stress, hunger, and more.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a naturally occurring compound found in the resinous flower of cannabis and hemp plants, with a rich history as a medicine going back thousands of years. Today the therapeutic properties of CBD are being tested and confirmed by scientists and doctors around the world. CBD, unlike THC, is a cannabinoid that does not give a psychoactive effect. Meaning one can experience pain relief and numerous other benefits of cannabis without feeling “high.” But because the federal government classifies cannabis as an illegal drug and hemp has a complicated legal status, CBD is also highly controversial.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is CBD Legal?

CBD is legal under federal law, provided that it is derived from imported hemp. No prescription needed. CBD itself is not specifically listed as a controlled substance in the United States Controlled Substances Act like THC. Individual state laws, however, are dynamic and some individual states may govern hemp-derived CBD.

Will CBD get me high?

CBD oil cannot get you high. Because CBD oil is extracted from cannabis plants, a common misconception is that it will elicit a euphoric effect. But the truth is, CBD oil is completely non-psychoactive, so it will not adversely affect sensory awareness, consciousness, perception, or behavior.
How long does it take CBD oil to work
There are many factors that determine how long it takes for CBD oil to work. Firstly, the symptom you are trying to eradicate from your life is the prime factor.
If you are trying to get rid of a prolonged illness, chances are the effects will take longer to work but if you are only taking CBD oil to enhance your overall health – the CBD oil is likely to start working almost instantly. Other factors that should be kept in account include mode of consumption and the actual dosage that is used.
