How does CBD work?
In the last 20 years, natural cannabinoid receptor systems have been discovered in the human body. It is binding to these receptors that cannabinoids produce their pharmacological effects. There are two types of cannabinoid receptors in humans, CB1 & CB2. CB1 receptors are present in the brain, spinal cord and certain peripheral tissues. CB2 receptors are found primarily in immune tissues.
Is it legal?
Yes, some CBD products are Federally legal in all 50 states. Other companies using US grown hemp are NOT Federally legal in all 50 states, do not get confused.
Is CBD a drug?
CBD is a natural occurring substance found in the cannabis plant; a plant has been known and used by man for over 5,000 years. It has been incorporated into man's life for so long, the human body even has its own endo-cannabinoid system, (ECS), with receptors found in our nervous system and our immune system to bind with CBD and THS. This is not unlike how we utilize other nutrients we consume to keep our health and wellness optimum. It could be said that CBD might be a dietary supplement we are meant to take regularly like vitamins and minerals. It is a neuro protectant and an antioxidant, offering preventative qualities, such as vitamin C preventing other ailments. Ot is even being studied for its effects on epi-genetics as preventative substance that may help humans avoid such conditions as Alzheimer's, Muscular sclerosis, and Senile Dementia. Most importantly, it may be the best supplement ever to help the sensation of addictive substances and behaviors such as smoking cigarettes, taking opiates, and alcohol. In the area of psychotherapy, CBD may be the most promising preventative substance in the treatment of PTSD. Based on the definition of a drug above; CBD does not alter the structure of the body, it only optimizes the its intended function of that structure, whether it be a neuron or an immune cell in the body. CBD does not alter the function of the body, again it only optimizes it. CBD restores an replenishes, it has no notable physiological changes in a person vital signs even at very high doses in the range of 1500 mg. It has no apparent toxicity documentations and it appears that the body only absorbs and uses what it needs, just like most vitamins and other nutrients. With the increase in allergies, auto-immune disorders and epidemic PTSD in out world, CBD may be returning to our world just in time, as the most important nutrient we needed and are lacking in, not another drug.

What is the difference between Hemp Seed Oil & CBD Oil?
Hempseed Oil is made from crushing the cannabis seeds which are rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, (to maintain healthy cholesterol/lipid levels in the body), as well as other dietary supplements. Many people drink this daily. There is no CBD or THC in the seeds and therefore, not in the seed oil. CBD Oil is made by a CO2 extraction process, which gently pulls the oil from the stalk, leaf, and resins. Both are said to be from Industrial Hemp which is Cannabis Sativa.
What is the difference between industrial hemp & Cannabis Sativa?
Cannabis Sativa is the species of cannabis that produces both plants. The common name Hemp was given to the cultivated Sativa plant because of it's use, (originally for its fiber to make rope, clothing and sails), and now days, because of it's high CBD content and low THC content. The federal laws have dictated that any cannabis containing more than 0.3% THC is "Marijuana", and therefore illegal and a drug to be controlled at a minimum. Cannabis Sativa grown for hemp type use is only grown with permits within the United States. The obvious problem is that both types of this cultivated plant, Sativa, to the average person, looks the same and therefore hard to control. Perhaps we need to redefine all cannabis by its cannabinoids content, revising the taxonomy to reflect subspecies cultivated for specific use such as recreational, medicinal, a food supplement, and spiritual. And finally, to make all species legal to use as desired.
Will I fail a drug test?
Most drug tests are geared towards identifying THC, not CBD or another cannabinoids. If one uses CBD rich cannabis that has only a small amount of THC, the THC may register on a drug test. A drug test geared toward CBD would not be an effective law enforcement tool, given that CBD is not psychoactive and does not cause impairment.
