What does CBD stand for? 

CBD is an abbreviation for cannabidiol which is one of the many plant chemicals found in the cannabis plant.  Our bodies have a endocannabinoid system with endocannabinoid receptors. These receptors are how CBD is used by your body.

 

If it's in cannabis, won't it get me "high"

No, CBD does not have any psychoactive properties. CBD has many potential benefits, like better mood, relaxation, and less chronic pain, but it never gives you a "high."

 

What is the difference between CBD and THC?

They are two completely different substances and molecules. THC affects the brain by binding to naturally-occurring CB-1 receptors in the central nervous system. CBD is a differently-shaped molecule that binds to CB-2 receptors in cell and body tissues outside the central nervous system. 

Is CBD Legal?

Yes! Federal law has established that a CBD product (oil, vape, topical, etc) that is produced from the seeds and stalk of the industrial hemp plant (with less than 0.3% THC), it is permissible to buy, sell, and ship across state lines.

How Do I take CBD?

There are many ways to take CBD.  The most popular are:

1. Ingested Orally. Either by oil dropped in the mouth (best under the tongue) or edibles (like gummies). 
2. Inhaled. Either by smoking the dried flower or using a vaping set up. 

3. Topically. By rubbing on the skin.
