What is CBD?

The world today moves at remarkable speeds with information and new ideas being implemented into our daily lives through social media, advertising, news, and the people around us. This trend in information surplus has allowed for products such as CBD to rise in the health industry and gain an immense amount of attention in a very short period of time. CBD also known as Cannabidiol, is most commonly known as being an additive to bath bombs, supplements, chapstick, oils, and even coffee. While its primary attention is given to new and upcoming products, cannabidiol is also being used in many health studies. Doctors and scientists have utilized CBD as treatments for depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, insomnia, epilepsy and many other health concerns. While its benefits are clearly visible, most people are still unaware as to what is actually is. So here's the break down.

As mentioned earlier, the formal name of CBD is actually Cannabidiol, which is derived from hemp, a cousin plant to marijuana. Both of these plants come from the cannabis family however, this is often misunderstood and without prior knowledge, people often categorize Marijuana and Hemp to be the same thing. While marijuana is cultivated for its THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) effects, Hemp is cultivated for its industrial uses, and CBD’s calming effects. It is impossible to achieve the “high” associated with THC by ingesting CBD from hemp. The World Health Organization states, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…. To date, there is no evidence of public health-related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.” There is growing debate on the legalization of harvesting and selling marijuana nationally. Currently marijuana recreational use is legal in some states such as California, Colorado, Oregon and Nevada, however CBD hemp is legal across the nation at the Federal level although  each state may have different regulations. Some CBD products can contain trace amounts of THC yet, it is still legal because of its lack of mind-altering effects. Marijuana is known to have anywhere from 5-30% THC content while CBD never exceeds .5%, thus being said, it is impossible to achieve a high through CBD. 

The Cannabis market continues to grow larger and larger each day with the world catching wind of its remarkable health benefits. It’s legalization and understanding has provided people with great alternatives to medications and allowed for a new wave of natural medicine to arise.
