What Are The Benefits Of CBD?
You may wonder, “What is CBD Good For?”. There has been much research on the positive effects of CBD. One of the best findings that researchers have discovered is the link between CBD and the endocannabinoid system (ECS).
The ECS, a unique communications system in the brain and body, works to maintain our health in tandem with our immune system and nervous system. Many factors can cause our ECS system to function improperly, including stress, environmental factors, and pollution, and thus cause our other systems to begin to malfunction. CBD works by helping to restore balance and function to the endocannabinoid system (ECS) and thus bringing balance back to our bodies.
Some of the things that CBD is most commonly used to treat include:
Various forms of pain, both chronic and acute
Anxiety, depression, and other mental health problems
Arthritis and other inflammatory conditions
Various diseases of the intestinal tract like IBS and Crohn’s disease
And much more
Is CBD Legal?
Since CBD is non-psychoactive, it is treated differently than THC, which is a psychoactive cannabinoid.
In December 2018, President Trump signed the Farm Bill of 2018 into law. This law legalizes the production of hemp CBD, a form of cannabis with lower THC levels that marijuana, as well as the sale of CBD in all US states.
In addition, the FDA recently approved Epidiolex – a CBD oral-mucosal spray produced by GW Pharmaceuticals – for use in the treatment of intractable seizure disorders. This product has set a new precedent for the medical value of CBD.
Is CBD Weed?
No. Marijuana and Hemp are both part of the cannabis family. Depending on how the plant is bred dictates whether it is considered marijuana or hemp. Marijuana is bred with higher levels of THC, which makes it psychoactive. Hemp is a cross breed of the plant to have higher CBD and minimal THC.
How Is CBD Different Than THC?
CBD tends to deliver very clear-headed, functional effects without the euphoric high associated with THC. They’re typically preferred by consumers who are extremely sensitive to the side effects of THC (e.g. anxiety, paranoia, dizziness).
CBD strain is a great choice for someone needing to medicate throughout the day to control pain, inflammation, anxiety, or other chronic conditions.

CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of 113 cannabinoids (chemical compound) unique to the hemp plant. Hemp is defined as a cannabis plant with less than 0.3% THC. Because of these low levels of THC, CBD is non-psychoactive. CBD is produced from the leaves and flowers of the female hemp plant.
Our CBD is extracted from the hemp plant, 100% pure lab tested, and is guaranteed to contain no THC.
