What is CBD?
CBD is the short form of cannabidiol, a second largest compound found in the cannabis plant. The Cannabis plant contains a high level of plant chemicals such as cannabinoids, terpenes, alkaloids and essential oils which can elicit medicinal properties when used in the body. A cannabinoid is a large group of phytochemicals with over 100 known cannabinoids including tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), Cannabidiol (CBD) Cannabinol (CBN) and Cannabigerol (CBG).
How does CBD interact with my body cells?
CBD works to complement your body’s natural endocannabinoid system by mimicking the activity of endocannabinoids. The endocannabinoid system (endocannabinoids and its receptors) is responsible for controlling cognitive responses like pain sensation, hunger, appetite, mood and memory.
Does it make me high?
Administering CBD topically (on the skin) or orally (through the mouth) does not make you high. Data gathered from scientific research has shown that the feeling of highness experienced after taking cannabis is linked to the high THC content in marijuana or hemp.
Is it safe?
Assuming the starting material was a quality product, CBD is safe and is considered to be non-toxic and can be taken without any form of tampering with the brain function; meaning no fatal overdose levels have ever been reported.
Legality of CBD
June 25, 2018 FDA approves first drug comprised of an active ingredient derived from marijuana to treat rare, severe forms of epilepsy.

December 13, 2018 congress passed The Hemp Farming Act of 2018. According to the 2018 Farm Bill, “hemp” is now defined as “the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol [THC] concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.” This means CBD and hemp extracts may be included in federally legal products for sale, provided the concentration of THC does not exceed the limit defined in the Farm Bill.
