Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally-occurring compound found in hemp that provides a myriad of
health benefits without the psychoactive properties that make you feel “high.”
CBD can offer mental and physical relief.
While some products contain both CBD and THC, Plenty Pharma products contain 0.3% or less THC.
WHERE DOES IT COME FROM?
CBD (cannabidiol) comes from the federally legal Industrial Hemp plant, along with over 110 other different cannabinoids. Because of its sturdy fibers, hemp has been used for a wide range of industrial and medical applications: it was used to build ships, construct homes, and make fabric for clothing.
WHAT CAN IT BE USED FOR?
The amazing thing about CBD is that it can be used in varying ways for a myriad of ailments. Scientific and clinical research, sponsored and supported by the US government, has found that CBD is an appealing option for pain-relief, inflammation, anxiety, and other conditions—without any lingering feeling of lethargy, paranoia, or dysphoria.
Recently, scientists have discovered the life-saving properties of CBD—hemp’s second-most concentrated and naturally-occurring cannabinoid. CBD is extracted and separated from hemp in oil form and then used in varying concentrations and delivery forms to provide relief to users. Since CBD products made from industrial hemp contain less than 0.3% THC it cannot get you “high”. Still, there is some stigma around hemp and CBD due to the sometimes confusing terminology. CBD is the chemical found in hemp that offers the medicinal benefits without any of the psychoactive properties (mind cloudiness, memory loss, etc.) that THC can produce. It is impossible to get “high” using CBD-rich hemp and CBD oil products, as a matter of fact, CBD actually counteracts the psychoactive properties of THC.
