If you are like most of us, you’ve probably heard of CBD in some way by now. You’re also probably wondering, what is this CBD that I’ve been hearing about on TV, Radio and the internet. If you go by its definition, CBD or Cannabidiol, it is a natural compound found the cannabis flower. Many strains of this plant are from the hemp family. While that tells you CBD technically is, what does that actually mean?
The person that first discovered CBD in the cannabis plant is Dr. Roger Adams. Hemp had been grown for over a hundred years for the purpose of paper, fabric and manufacturing material. This included military equipment used in the second world war.
Despite all of its prosperity for several decades, the Marijuana Tax Act then deemed that hemp plants, and their byproducts, were unconstitutional. Any research on CBD was effectively halted. All research was then shifted to the psychoactive, the feeling of being high, chemical, THC. THC or tetrahydrocannabinol is the chemical agent in marijuana or “weed” that gets users high. This firm fisted grip of the industry continued until 2015 when researchers allowed to conduct effective CBD trials. CBD continues to be used in research to look for benefits of its users.
As of today, CBD remains a controversial topic among misinformed individuals. This is because it is unfairly tied to its marijuana relative that contains THC (the only psychogenic chemical found within the hemp plant). Marijuana and hemp are vastly different plants. Most hemp plants contain less than 0.03% THC, which means that in an oil, capsule or topical, you will not get “high” from it.
CBD is not harmful and is considered to be closer to a vitamin, opposed to how the media portrays it. However, everybody is different, it is encouraged that you consult a physician and to do your own research to find out what may and may not work for you.
So, with so many CBD companies and opinions in the mix, who do you know to buy from? The first check is their third-party lab tests. There are hundreds of companies out there trying to sell their products. However, only the most legitimate, user conscientious manufactures will post their factual results.
When it comes down to the legality of buying CBD products, it is vastly different than trying to buy psychoactive herbs such as marijuana. The purchasing of CBD in America is legal in all 50 states. If you make your purchase from the correct source, you can avoid any issues.
