What is CBD?

CBD is short for cannabidiol and is found within the cannabis sativa plant. CBD is extracted from the cannabis sativa plant and then is diluted with a carrier oil making it 100% safe to use directly on the skin, inhale or use as a supplement.

Since the Farm Bill was passed in 2018, all CBD products on the market are regulated by the FDA and only produced in safe concentrations as per the FDA’s guidelines: "the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of that plant,

including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a [THC] concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis." - FDA

Since 2018, the CBD market has completely exploded! There are hardly any products today that you can’t find a CBD-infused equivalent to. Even some veterinarians are selling CBD products specifically for cats and dogs. Why? Because CBD can remedy an incredible number of ailments and is particularly helpful in reducing pain and seizures.

Our bodies have what is called an endocannabinoid system (ECS) which is a network of cannabinoid receptors throughout the body. It controls things like memory, cognitive function, pain, stress, mood and immune response. CBD has the ability to attach itself to these receptors and provide our bodies with therapeutic effects without the risk of making us “high” because CBD is a completely separate extract from THC, the chemical compound in marijuana that has mind-altering and euphoric effects.

CBD has shown to be a leader in homeopathic healing. As science improves and more research is conducted, CBD is likely to continue to prove its worth as a therapeutic supplement.
