Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of over 100 cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. CBD is non-psychoactive, which means it won’t get you “high.”
CBD may provide relief for pain, anxiety, stress, inflammation, depression, insomnia, and many other conditions. Some have called it a lifesaver.
The best part: CBD derived from hemp is federally legal. You’ll soon be able to purchase CBD at places like Walgreens and CVS.
THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM
The endocannabinoid system is composed of cannabinoid receptors, which are located throughout the entire human body. This system is about so much more than cannabis.
The endocannabinoid system is responsible for maintaining homeostasis and that is a big deal. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, “If homeostasis is successful, life continues; if unsuccessful, disaster or death ensues.” Homeostasis is your health, which makes the endocannabinoid system your new best friend.
CBD and other cannabinoids may improve your health by stimulating the body’s natural endocannabinoid system.
TYPES OF CBD PRODUCTS
Now that hemp is federally legal, you can find CBD in a growing number of products. Extracts, gel-capsules, edibles, vape oils, and creams are among the most popular.
CBD is effective on its own. Some research suggests that you can amplify CBD’s medicinal benefits by using a product that includes other cannabinoids, such as THC, CBDV, CBC, CBN, and many others.
Whatever product you choose, we’re here to tell you exactly what’s in it.
BEWARE: FAKE CBD PRODUCTS
Studies by the FDA and the prestigious journal JAMA found that the majority of CBD products on the market were mislabeled. Many products contained little-to-no CBD, too much THC, and substances not listed on the label.
Fake CBD is a real problem, which is why we test every single product that we review.
