The passage of the agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 (US Farm Bill) effectively legalized industrial hemp on a federal level.Every state now determines their own laws and guidelines for CBD products. Its best to check with your local or state agencies to have the most up to date information regarding the lawfulness of CBD products in your area. Currently as of 2019 three states do not allow any help derived products : Idaho, Nebraska, and South Dakota.
Its is not likely one would show positive for THC on a Urine Drug Screen taking pure isolate CBD. However Full-Spectrum CBD contains minute amounts of THC (<0.3%) and could result in a positive screen. If you are concerned about testing positive the best solution is to discontinue using any CBD products prior to screening.
Cannabidiol or CBD is a non-psychotropic cannabinoid compound with enormous therapeutic potential. Cannabinoids are chemicals that trigger the cannabinoid (and other) receptors in the brain and body. In addition to phyto-cannabinoids produced by the plant, there are endogenous cannabinoids that occur naturally in the body, as well as synthetic cannabinoids created by pharmaceutical researchers. Scientists have found 113 different naturally occurring cannabinoids. CBD is just one of them
Scientific and clinical studies have shown that CBD could be therapeutic for many conditions, including chronic pain, cancer, anxiety, diabetes, epilepsy, rheumatoid arthritis, PTSD, sleep disorders, alcoholism, cardiovascular disease, antibiotic-resistant infections, and neurological ailments.
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a collection of cell receptors and the corresponding molecules (agonists) in the human body. When the ECS is in balance one will experience homeostasis. Unfortunately, under the assault of stress, illness or injury, your body may not produce enough endocannabinoids to fulfill communication requirements. The system becomes unbalanced and communication deteriorates. Some scientists are leaning towards the belief that many disease and medical conditions are potentially caused by endocannabinoid deficiencies. Much like a daily vitamin, CBD, one of the many cannabinoids found in the industrial hemp plant, supplements Endocannabinoid human performance. The Endocannabinoid system helps regulate the following: Appetite, Control, Fertility, Immune Function, Memory, Mood, Motor, Pain, Pleasure, Reproduction, and Sleep.
Hemp, or Industrial Hemp, is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant species that is grown specifically to have a max THC level of 0.3%, essentially making it impossible to feel any psychoactive effect or get “high”. Hemp vs Marijuana Marijuana and Hemp are both cannabis, but they are not the same. The two are grown differently and do not look the same. The greatest distinction is in their THC content. By Federal law industrial hemp cannot contain more than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive cannabinoid found in marijuana.
Before using any CBD products it is recommend you consult with your physician. There are multiple ways to consume CBD. The most common way is tinctures. The quickest way to absorb CBD is by vaping. Vaping offers the greatest bioavailability. You can also apply CBD directly to your skin with topicals. Lastly, you can eat or drink CBD with edibles, capsules, or liquids. Common Terms: CBD Isolate is simply purified CBD that has been extracted from the plant and isolated from the other cannabinoids. Full Spectrum or whole plant CBD means the oil contains all the other cannabinoids found in the plant including CBN, CBG, and THCV, to name a few. Broad Spectrum contains all the possible cannabinoids with THC removed. Entourage Effect is a proposed mechanism by which the many compounds within the cannabis plant interact with the human body to produce a stronger influence than any one of those components alone.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of more than 100 unique “cannabinoid” compounds that are found in the oily resin of the cannabis plant. The sticky, gooey resin is concentrated on the dense clusters of cannabis flowers, commonly called “buds,” which are covered by tiny, mushroom-shaped “trichomes.” This is where the magic happens. Trichomes are specialized glandular structures that contain a treasure trove of oily, medicinal compounds, including CBD, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and various aromatic terpenes. Why does cannabis create these oily compounds? What does the resin do for the plant? The oily trichomes protect the plant from heat and ultraviolet radiation. The oil also has antifungal, antibacterial and insecticidal properties that deter predators. The stickiness of the resin provides another defensive layer by trapping bugs. As it happens, the same oily resin that protects the health of the plant includes components that are beneficial for human health. CBD, a non-intoxicating compound, has shown promise in treating and managing the symptoms of a broad range of diseases. Ditto for THC, CBD’s intoxicating cousin.
