Health benefits of CBD

CBD. It seems like everyone is talking about it lately. That’s because it’s rapidly becoming the go-to for people seeking naturally-derived therapies for many conditions.

What is CBD?
CBD, is short for cannabidiol, a naturally occurring chemical from the cannabis plant and its close cousin the hemp plant, which have a history in medicine dating back thousands of years.

CBD is extracted primarily from the hemp plant and is used for its wellness properties.

CBD closely emulates chemicals our bodies produce naturally called endogenous cannabinoids which are part of a regulatory system called the endocannabinoid system (ECS) that helps maintain homeostasis in the body.

What are the health benefits?
The endocannabinoid system regulates many physiological processes that impact us every day – our mood, our energy level, immune activity, how we experience pain, stress, hunger, and more.

The body’s natural production of cannabidiols can diminish over time due to age and other factors. When our body’s ECS is out of balance, it can cause insomnia, depression, anxiousness, and even increased pain sensitivity.

Scientists believe CBD interacts with our body’s ECS system, mimicking and augmenting our natural endogenous cannabinoids, restoring balance and helping reduce anxiety, pain, and inflammation, and instilling a general, all-around sense of wellness.

No, CBD won’t get you high.
CBD is unlike its close relative THC, a psychoactive substance responsible for the marijuana high. THC and CBD are entirely different compounds and produce entirely different effects. CBD is non-psychoactive because it works on entirely different receptors in the brain and body. It won’t get you high and it’s safe and non-addictive.

Yes, it’s legal.
CBD that is derived from the hemp plant, like that used in Dr. Hemp products, is federally legal for sale and consumption when produced in accordance with Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, also known as the Farm Bill.

CBD supplements come in many forms – gummies, oils, pills and more. When choosing CBD supplements it’s important to note that CBD supplements are not regulated by the FDA, so it is possible to buy a product that is more or less potent than advertised, or even contains small amounts of THC. So most experts agree you should choose CBD supplements that are tested by a third party to confirm the label's accuracy.
