About Our CBD Oils
What Is CBD?
CBD stands for Cannabidiol. It has become one of the most exciting and notable organic compounds in the field of natural medicine. It is by far one of the most studied compounds of the 100 plus known cannabinoids found in the industrial hemp plant. Cannabidiol is natural and non-psychoactive, which means it will not get you high or intoxicated. CBD is often regarded as the single most crucial cannabinoid ever discovered. In continuing research and studies, the list of uses continues to grow. Providing hope to those looking to enhance their overall wellness and quality of life. Whether to maintain general health and well-being, or taking a more proactive and natural approach to health, CBD offers a wide range of therapeutic benefits.
Is CBD Oil Legal?
The 2014 federal Farm Bill granted state governments the legal right to grow and research industrial hemp through state-regulated agriculture and pilot programs. It also classified hemp and hemp-derived products with less than 0.3 % THC separate from marijuana cannabis.
With the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, the growth, production, and sale of hemp and hemp-based products became federally legalized.
Both marijuana and hemp come from the same Cannabis sativa plant; the main distinguishing trait between the two is their levels of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Hemp is grown to have low THC (industrial hemp has 0.3 % and is therefore federally legal). Conversely, marijuana is bred to have higher THC concentrations and is still federally illegal.
Congress’ decision in 2014 legally allowed the cultivation of industrial hemp through state-regulated agriculture departments for hemp management and research; their most recent ruling in 2018 removes industrial hemp from the federal Controlled Substance List as a Schedule I drug, and it allows for a hemp market and sales through state borders.
The approved legality of industrial hemp implemented by Congress also guarantees that products created from hemp plants – including CBD oil – are federally legal because of their nonintoxicating levels of THC. That being said, individual states can still decide if they want to allow hemp-based products to be sold within state borders.
Regarding federal law, CBD oil products from hemp containing less than 0.3 % are legal to purchase, sell, and consume throughout the United States. Again, states can still decide if they want to support this measure based on their own laws.
How Does CBD Work?
CBD is one of 100 plus natural chemicals often called cannabinoids. CBD is not psychoactive, meaning it will not get the user high or intoxicated. The chemical that is responsible for the high effects is THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) not CBD. Because CBD and THC have different chemical structures they interact differently with human receptors and have unique effects. Research indicates that CBD interacts with the body’s Edocannabinoid System (ECS). The ECS is an extensive signaling system located throughout the body including in the central and peripheral nervous systems. It consists of neuromodulatory lipids and receptors responsible for homeostasis and immune function. A deficiency in Endocannabinoid tone can lead to health issues. Cannabidiol binds to human CB1 and CB2 receptors in the ECS. This receptor interaction promotes homeostasis and manifests as improved health.
- THC binds directly to cell receptors to create a psychoactive response.
- CBD binds indirectly to cell receptors to moderate signaling and the flow of other chemicals for a wide range of positive effects.
CBD Works with the Endocannabinoid System
Research over the last 40 years has identified a vast and complex system in the body called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). According to multiple studies the ECS helps regulate many things including brain function, mood, immune response, sleep, inflammation, stress and pain. This system is made up of endocannabinoids (natural chemicals produced by your body), cell receptors for cannabinoids, and enzymes that break cannabinoids down. ECS receptors are located throughout the entire body and are one of the main signaling channels for how the body responds to stimuli. In addition to cannabinoids produced by the body, cannabinoids from plants like CBD can also act on the ECS. Research shows that when a person consumes CDB, it interacts with the ECS receptors throughout the body. Specifically, CBD interacts with with the CB1 and CB2 receptors.
- CB1 (cannabinoid receptor type 1 ) are highly concentrated in the brain and central nervous system with some receptors also in glands, spleen, heart and other locations
- CB2 (cannabinoid receptor type 2 ) are found in the peripheral tissues and cells of the immune system.
These two types of receptors are recognized as signaling pathways for pain perception, appetite, anxiety, stress, and inflammatory responses. Binding of a cannabinoid molecule to one of the two primary endocannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2) controls the way cells in a neural pathway release neurotransmitters to adjacent cells. Research shows that CBD will act on these receptors indirectly, moderating the signals sent to the brain, this may minimize unnecessary pain or inflammation.
