WHAT IS CBD?
CBD (Cannabidiol) is a compound found in the Cannabis plant. It can be used in several different ways including vaping, smoking, tinctures, capsules, and edibles. Unlike its close relative, THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD is completely non-psychoactive. This allows us to benefit from the many health properties of the Cannabis plant without the negative side effects of “getting high.” Because of this, CBD became a very popular option for those seeking a natural alternative. All cannabinoids, including CBD, produce effects in the body by attaching to certain receptors. The human body produces certain cannabinoids on its own. It also has two receptors for cannabinoids, called the CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors. CB1 receptors are present throughout the body, but many are in the brain. The CB1 receptors in the brain deal with coordination and movement, pain, emotions, and mood, thinking, appetite, and memories, and other functions.
CB2 receptors are more common in the immune system. They affect inflammation and pain.
WILL CBD MAKE ME “HIGH”?
No! CBD is 100% non-psychoactive, meaning it doesn’t negatively impact your mind or mental processes. In other words, CBD does not get you high,stoned, faded, or any other term you care to use. There is no mental fog or haziness caused by CBD.
IS CBD LEGAL IN NORTH CAROLINA?
In December 2018, Congress passed, and President Trump signed into law, the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (the “2018 Farm Bill”), which, among other things, legalized the cultivation of hemp and removed hemp from its former classification as a Federal Schedule I controlled substance. Hemp is defined federally as any part or derivative of the Cannabis plant containing less than 0.3% Delta9 THC. Therefore, CBD Products containing less than 0.3% Delta9 THC are legal. All of our products meet this legal requirement.
