Facts about CBD


CBD or Cannabidiol, is a phytocannabinoid found in agricultural hemp. It is a non-psychotoxic, meaning you will not feel “high” or euphoric from ingesting. Cannabidiol can also potentially counteract the psychoactivity of THC. CBD is beginning to be recognized for its potential therapeutic uses and is quickly becoming a promising natural alternative when seeking relief. In addition, CBD has a positive effect on the endocannabinoid system and can effectively be used to maintain a healthy balance in your body by enhancing circulation and regenerating cellular activity.


Researchers have been investigating the existence and functions of a central regulatory system called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) since its discovery in 1992. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the entire body, performing varying tasks in each tissue to maintain a balanced and stable internal environment.


Hemp has long been a natural resource with a large number of uses. The plant can be used in its entirety for such things as food, fiber for fabrics, textiles and rope, fuel, paper, and even alternative plastics called bio-plastics. Hemp is believed to have over 25,000 uses and the list grows each day.


The growing of hemp has many benefits to the environment. One benefit is that hemp has a lesser need for water than other popular crops like corn or cotton. Hemp also sequesters CO2, combating global warming while removing more emissions from the air than trees. Lastly, hemp does not need herbicides or pesticides to thrive and leaves the soil in better condition than before it was planted.
