CBD 101

With all of the buzz going around about CBD, it’s easy to get lost in a mass of information. Some companies boast about the benefits of CBD, while others may provide misinformation about their products to convince you to buy them. Because this is such a prevalent issue in the cannabis industry, we’ve decided to clear up the confusion by providing the basics of CBD: what to expect, how it works and how it may benefit you.

What actually is CBD?

 
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring compound found in the cannabis plant. CBD interacts with a web of receptors throughout your body, and nervous system, known as the endocannabinoid system. This system plays an important role in a number of vital functions, such as your mood and even sleep cycles.
 
Its extremely important to understand that CBD is absolutely non-intoxicating. A lot of times CBD is mixed up with THC—which has the potential to get you high if over the threshold of 0.3%—but they’re completely different compounds. The 2018 Farm Bill made hemp (defined as having less than 0.3% THC) legal in the United States. All of our CBD is derived from hemp is legally permitted in all states except Idaho, Iowa, and South Dakota. You can even pick it up at your local market, like Walgreens and CVS, but the chances of it being  from a high-quality source is extremely low.

We’re all familiar with internal biological systems like the respiratory and vascular systems (at least, you should be) but there’s another, major-yet-lesser known one: the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is responsible for all of life’s functions like mood, memory and even sleep cycles. The ECS’ role is to mediate internal functions to a state of homeostasis. Simply put,  it balances your body’s processes for your overall health and wellness.
 
Our bodies naturally produce compounds called endocannabinoids, which are the keys to balancing the ECS. Humans aren’t the only ones that provide internal cannabinoid molecules— all plants and mammals produce either phyto or endo cannabinoids. These are sometimes called cannabinoids, especially in the plant world.  CBD (short for cannabidiol) is one of the major phytocannabinoids found in cannabis. CBD works alongside your body’s natural endocannabinoids to bring homeostasis within.
