What is CBD?
CBD stands for Cannabidiol, and it is the most prevalent active phytocannabinoid in the hemp plant. This compound occurs naturally in hemp and is used in oils and edibles, which imparts a feeling of relaxation and calm.
No, CBD does not get you high. CBD is not psychoactive. A separate chemical called THC is what makes people “high” in marijuana.
Hemp, naturally and by law, contains only very, very small amounts of THC — no more than 0.3%. By the way, that means hemp contains about 100 times less THC than marijuana, which is cultivated specifically for THC. While they are both phytocannabinoids, the difference between CBD and THC is night and day.
This is one of the big characteristics that sets hemp apart and why hemp-derived CBD is getting so much attention. In fact, I’ve seen everyone from grandmothers to young adults use this ancient botanical safely to help their body without the intoxicating, addicting high feeling that comes with marijuana and THC.
Now, the jury is still out on some conditions…
But when you do an online search you will find many men and women across the world using CBD for:
- Muscle and joint aches
- Neuropathic pain management
- Symptoms of depression
In fact, a recent study published in The American Journal of Psychiatry, researchers found that CBD reduced anxiety, stress hormones and heart rate, and what’s more, it dampened cravings for dangerous, addictive substances of abuse.
That’s exciting for those suffering without anywhere to turn!
