Subject: What is CBD?
In wake of the recent farm bill passing, legalizing Hemp on a federal level and medical marijuana continuing to grow, we are seeing a new trend taking the health world by storm, and it does not get you high but you can still reap a multitude of physical and mental benefits.
That is CBD, or Cannabidiol. CBD has helped thousands with anxiety, pain, inflammation and a list of many others. On the business end, the CBD industry was a 512 million dollar business in 2018, up from 350 million in 2017 and 100 million in 2014.
With that out of the way, lets talk about what CBD actually is and what it means for you.
CBD is a Cannabis compound that can be derived from hemp or marijuana- almost all CBD available is derived from hemp, meaning the THC levels are below 0.3% so users will not get high. CBD is one of the cannabinoids or occurring elements found in Cannabis. THC, or tetrahydrocannabidiol is the most common cannabinoid followed by CBD. It is important to note that with Hemp derived CBD, THC levels will be below 0.3% so no psychoactive effects will happen to the consumer. Also, Hemp derived CBD is now federally legal and is becoming increasingly available to consumers with online sales being the most discrete and convenient way to purchase CBD.
The good news is that there is now a natural way to get relief without the side effects from big pharma.
It's safe to say that CBD is here to stay and it's benefits are being discovered by thousands every day.
