What is CBD?
CBD or Cannabidiol is one of at least 113 cannabinoids identified in cannabis or marijuana or hemp. CBD alone does not give the “high” of marijuana or hemp. That effect is caused by tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Many CBD product does not contain THC which means taking CBD in many cases will not cause you to fail a drug test.
So Why Try CBD?
CBD is actually the element of marijuana that causes the feeling of relaxation. CBD is being credited with helping treat a host of medical problems including epileptic seizures, anxiety, inflammation, and sleeplessness. Documented evidence is few at this point.
Is It Legal and Safe
CBD is legal in 30 states where recreational or medical marijuana is legal and as many as 17 other states have laws that allow it to be sold in many forms including candies and oils. Most likely if it is openly sold in your area it is legal. As with anything, you should do research on brands and products before consuming anything you are unsure about.
