How does CBD work?
CBD stimulates and regulates the endo-cannabinoid system, a group of neuromodulators in our body responsible for a variety of physiological processes. Our bodies produce many different cannabinoids that interact with our cannabinoid receptors. The endo-cannabinoid system regulates appetite, pain-sensation, mood, memory and more by producing cannabinoids to interact with our body’s cannabinoid receptors that are found in the brain, as well as on some of our organs. While most cannabinoids bind into these receptors, CBD, which is essentially a naturally occurring cannabinoid found in plants, interacts with the endo-cannabinoid system indirectly, regulating the production of our own internal cannabinoids and promoting the overall health of our endo-cannabinoid system. The endo-cannabinoid system plays a crucial role in the normal functions of the immune and nervous systems. By stimulating and regulating the endo-cannabinoid system with CBD, we can observe a wide variety of positive effects, as showcased by numerous recent studies on the subject. Research on the exact properties of CBD and its interaction with our bodies is currently underway and scientists uncover new facts about this cannabinoid literally every month. So far, the results have been almost exclusively encouraging.
What is the legality around CBD?
CBD, produced through the proper means is legal everywhere. Hemp oil products are legal to consume, sell and possess in the U.S., as well as any other country in the rest of the world. Industrial hemp oil and all its derivatives are considered dietary supplements by the FDA.
Hemp is imported according all safety standards and handled in an FDA-registered process facility in the U.S. There is a clear legal distinction between industrial hemp and marijuana, which is a controlled substance.
What's the difference between Hemp and Marijuana?
Hemp and marijuana are different varieties of the Cannabis genus of plants, bred for different purposes. Industrial hemp is exclusively produced by Cannabis sativa, while marijuana can refer to the sub-genuses of Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, or Cannabis ruderalis. Industrial hemp is grown to be fibrous and durable, with very long stalks and as few flowering buds as possible. Marijuana strains of cannabis are typically smaller, flimsier and have as many flowering buds as their breeding can allow. Marijuana is bred with the sole purpose of maximizing the concentration of THC, while industrial hemp naturally has trace amounts of THC and fairly high amounts of CBD.
What is the safety of hemp oil? Are there negative side effects?
Cannabidiol (CBD) has been shown to have virtually no side-effects, both physically and mentally. There have been no documented major side effects caused by ingesting CBD and hemp in general. Very rarely, when first ingesting CBD, some people will experience a short-lasting, mild stomach pain. This pain typically subsides a few days after use. High concentrations of CBD can have a mild sedative effect. Abnormally high servings of CBD (more than 200mg of CBD in a single dose) may induce an unpleasant emotional state of restlessness known as dysphoria. This is only the case with unrealistically high concentrations of CBD that no person should be ingesting in the first place.
