Score the health benefits of cannabis without getting high
Want to explore the wellness advantages of cannabis but don't want to "get high" or feel out of control in any way? There is actually a way to reap the plant's rewards without doing so. It's called CBD!
Cannibidiol is the second major compound found in marijuana. CBD offers a subtle sensation usually described as a mild body high with no impact on your mind. Not being part of the major discussion until recently, the cannabis plant has actually been known for centuries to treat everything from anxiety to epilepsy.
It was not until users discovered a more mind altering affect with the plant that cultivators started to realize how breeding strategies can form plants with higher or lower amounts of THC and/or CBD.
The one confusing thing about CBD is the sourcing varies on where you live. If the specific CBD is sourced from a hemp plant, which is legal in all 50 states, you can purchase it anywhere that products are distributed. However, if products are cannabis-derived CBD, you can only access it from the states that have legalized marijuana for its medical or recreational use.
