Hemp-derived CBD is legal in all 50 states, although legislation in some areas prevents local product sales and purchases. According to Federal Law, CBD containing 0.3% or less THC is now legal in all 50 US states, as a result of the 2018 Farm Bill.
THC and CBD can have an impact on the endocannabinoid system, which plays an important role maintaining homeostasis. Although researchers are still trying to figure out the details of this complex system’s workings, they know it is involved in processes such as memory, appetite and mood.
While CBD and THC share many similarities, there are key differences.
- Psychoactive (produces high).
- Sourced from marijuana
- Non-psychoactive (doesn’t produce a high).
- Hemp is a common source of this product.
Different brain receptors are affected by CBD and THC. CBD is not known to have any psychoactive effects, so it won’t make you feel high.
THC does however have psychoactive effects. THC is the compound responsible for the marijuana high.
Being associated with cannabis, there is a common misconception that CBD will get you high. However, the ‘high’ is caused by the THC compound of cannabis.
CBD is the abbreviation for cannabidiol. It’s one of many compounds found in cannabis plants, also known as cannabinoids. THC is another popular cannabinoid. Cannabinoids act on the cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body, making them unique.
Research has shown that the endocannabinoid system “ECS” is responsible for maintaining homeostasis, your body’s natural state of balance. To ensure optimal health, everything must be controlled within a small error range. This includes your temperature, blood sugar levels and pain sensations, as well as sleeping patterns, inflammation responses, CO2 levels and CO2 levels.
CBD works by binding to the cannabinoid receptors of the body’s endocannabinoid system. These receptors can be found in almost every type of cell and tissue in the body.
CBD, a naturally occurring chemical compound, is 100% natural and comes straight from the cannabis plant. It is not synthesized.
CBD oil is almost pure and free from other cannabinoids. Hemp oil is made from the cannabis plant. It contains all the cannabinoids present in the plant. Real CBD™ CBD Oil uses non-toxic, non-flammable CO2 extraction methods. CO2 extraction is a common method in the food industry and is “generally considered safe” by FDA. It eliminates the possibility of solvent residues in the final product.
There are many methods to extract CBD oil directly from cannabis plants. The CO2 extraction method uses CO2 to extract the oil. Because there is no residue left after extraction, CO2 solvent is considered cleaner and purer. After extraction, the oil is distilled to isolate the compounds (CBD being just one example).
