Things Everyone Gets Wrong About CBD

CBD isn't known to get you high, but recently it is causing quite of a buzz within medical researchers and patients with various types of symptoms. Known to have substantial therapeutic properties, numerous businesses and start-ups have jumped on the bandwagon. However, there still are things people get confused about when talking about CBD. 

People assume that just because CBD is one of the main chemicals found in marijuana that, that it is in relation to the euphoria and the "high" that it offers. However, research done specifically for CBD isn't to find ways to get one "higher". Instead, it is found to ultimately be a medicine, helping those with stress, high blood pressure, insomnia, and many other symptoms find relief, on occasion, for the first time. Studies as well show it is also used to relieve inflammation.

CBD is legal in all 50 states. Federal law prohibits U.S. farmers from growing hemp as a commercial crop, but the sale of imported, industrial hemp products is permitted as long as these products are derived from the seed or stalk of the plant and not the leaves or flowers.

'CBD only' laws are now coming into play serving the patient population which have found CBD to be beneficial to their health. Laws concerning medical marijuana in your state can be found here

It does matter where CBD comes from! Industrial hemp strains can be a viable source of CBD but may not be the most reliable as CBD-rich cannabis that contains more THC than preferred. Sometimes, huge amounts of hemp are required to obtain a small sample that can be used of CBD. 

It is important for one to do their own research and have an idea of how a specific product is made before trying it.
