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.
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.
