What is CBD?

Hemp is a versatile and sustainable plant using the seed, fiber and oil. The raw inputs are used to make a variety of products, ropes, clothing, construction materials, bio fuels, and health foods.  But, we are talking about CBD

CBD stands for Cannabidiol, and is one of over 100 identified cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. CBD is a compound that occurs naturally in the Cannabis cousins; Hemp and Marijuana plants. CBD is found in higher concentrations in Hemp and is regarded to possess great medicinal value without the psychoactive effects of THC. CBD can be viewed as the most medically significant.

Our bodies have an Endocannabinoid system and produces cannabinoids called endocannabinoids – the bridge between the body and mind. Taking external cannabinoids, such as CBD can help stimulate the body.

The best way we know how to describe how CBD works was expertly put by Gretchen Lidicker, in her book CBD Everyday Oil.

CBD interacts with our bodies through a G-protein-coupled receptor, GPCR. GPCRs are a big deal-they are the most common and diverse group of receptors in our bodies. They do a lot but mainly, they sit on the surface of the cells and act like inboxes, allowing cells to communicate with their surroundings and with each other. Scientists think that as much as 50% of all medicines bind with GPCRs to create a desired effect in the body.

Legality

CBD is federally legalized in the United States as long as it does not contain more than 0.3% THC. This was put into effect with the December 2018 Farm Bill. All 50 states have legalized CBD with varying degrees of restriction.

You can even fly with CBD in your carry-on or checked bags as long as they have less than 0.3% THC according to the TSA. If you are traveling internationally, we recommend checking local law regarding the legality of CBD products.
