What is CBD oil?
CBD (cannabidiol) is one of over 100 cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. Ongoing research has demonstrated that CBD’s many benefits makes it a smart addition to your wellness routine.
Hemp is a popular product of agriculture, known for its nutritional benefits: they are a great source of protein, help with digestion, have a reduced risk of heart disease, help with skin problems, to name the most known benefits.
The endocannabinoid system in the body is responsible for regulating sleep, anxiety, pain, inflammation and appetite. CBD binds to part of the body’s endocannabinoid receptors to boost the body’s production of its own cannabinoids. The interaction affects the release of neurotransmitters in your brain and can help with problems such as anxiety and depression, sleep management, muscles and joints pain and inflammation, weight and appetite.
Is CBD legal?
If it comes from agricultural hemp (if THC level is at or below 0.3%), CBD is considered legal in most states. Although it does not have psyhotic effects like Marijuana, there are still some states that prohibit it. It’s best to check local laws and regulations before buying and consuming CBD products.
Is CBD safe or addictive?
A World Health Organisation report on CBD confirmed that “CBD is generally well tolerated with a good safety profile. Reported adverse effects may be as a result of drug interactions between CBD and patients’ existing medications.”
CBD from agricultural hemp and from a trusted brand is generally well tolerated. Due to the extremely low levels of THC, there’s no reason why CBD oil should be addictive when used responsibly. Always check the manufacturer’s safety certificate and follow your doctor’s advice.
How is CBD different from Marijuana? Can you get high from CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are two natural compounds found in plants of the Cannabis (Cannabis sativa). THC and CBD are in both marijuana and hemp. Marijuana has much more THC than hemp, while hemp has a lot more CBD.
The primary difference between marijuana and hemp-derived CBD is that CBD cannot get you high. CBD doesn’t produce the high (euphoria) associated with THC. Legal hemp must contain 0.3 percent THC or less, about 400-600 times less THC than found in marijuana products.

The effects of CBD oil will vary from person to person. With an oral spray or dropper, nutrients are delivered directly into the bloodstream and effects are usually noticed within 30 minutes to an hour and can last up to six hours, depending on the dose taken.
