CBD is not the same as THC.
CBD is perfectly legal. And it doesn’t make you ‘high.’
The 2018 Farm Bill made it legal to both grow industrial hemp in the United States and sell hemp-derived CBD products grown in the U.S.
Hemp, the low-to-no THC variety of cannabis sativa, is grown for the oil, seed, and fiber it produces. THC is the compound that people associate with the classic ‘high’ of marijuana. CBD is actually the abbreviation for cannabidiol and is not psychoactive.
HOW IT WORKS
Our human bodies contain an endocannabinoid system (ECS) — a system that interfaces with many other systems throughout your body. Overall, a well-functioning ECS works to bring your internal system into balance. It regulates physical functions such as movement, pain sensation, immune responses as well as cognitive and mental functions like perception, mood, and memory. The ECS modulates different systems in your body to include the release of hormones related to stress, anxiety and depression..
There are three parts that make up your endocannabinoid system:
Receptors that detect molecules outside of cells and activate signals inside the cells.
Endocannabinoids are the human body’s internal cannabinoids.
Enzymes, technically called degradative enzymes, which break down our endocannabinoids after they perform a particular function like reducing anxiety.
We all have CB1 and CB2 receptors located throughout our bodies. Think of them as “locks” that can be “unlocked” by cannabis. The cannabis plant — or CBD — targets these receptors, influencing a myriad of bodily functions.
Full spectrum CBD is an extract that contains all compounds found naturally occurring in the plant, including terpenes, essential oils, and other cannabinoids. It is commonly understood that all cannabinoids work together to provide what's called the "entourage effect". By using full spectrum, users can rest knowing that they're receiving the entire plants profile of compounds.
