CBD, or Cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring compound extracted from the Hemp and Marijuana plant, and when taken, is believed to be responsible for numerous incredible health advantages.
Hemp is primarily grown for industrial purposes like paper, clothing, building materials, bio-fuel and food products. Marijuana is primarily grown for recreational and medicinal purposes. Hemp derived CBD usually contains only trace amounts or less of THC, (tetrahydracannabinol) less than 0.3%. Marijuana derived CBD usually contains high levels of THC between 15% and 40%. The intoxicating compound of the cannabis plant is THC.
No, you will not feel intoxicated or high if you take Hemp derived CBD since there is no or usually only a trace amount of THC or less.
CBD has been reported to help people relax, have less pain, reduce inflammation, sleep soundly, reduce anxiety and much more. CBD has been reported to possess anti- seizure properties, help with Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, reduce the risk of diabetes and ease and nourish skin issues.
Hemp-derived CBD and Hemp are now legal in the majority of the 50 states. Individuals should check their state laws to make sure that CBD is legal in the jurisdiction in which they live.
