CBD & Hemp products
CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is derived directly from the hemp plant. CBD is commonly used to address anxiety, insomnia, and could be an option for treating different types of chronic pain.
CBD is derived from the hemp plant, a cousin of the marijuana plant. However, unlike marijuana, CBD does not cause a “high.”, because of very low levels of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol ) which is the main psychoactive component of marijuana. According to a report from the World Health Organization, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…. To date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.”
CBD is derived from the hemp plant. Hemp is a very sustainable plant because it does not require big amounts of water and pesticides to grow. Hemp has been used for thousands of years, and can be refined into a variety of commercial items, including textiles, biodegradable plastics, biofuel, and food. Hemp can also be derived in food, as a vegan source of protein. For example, hemp seeds or hemp milk are a great alternative to dairy and animal protein, which have a huge carbon footprint.
CBD is derived from hemp. Industrial hemp production is legal in many countries, including Canada, UK, France, Russia, and has been legalized in the US in 2018. The World leading producer is China with 70% of the production, followed by France with 25% of the production.
A significant safety concern with CBD is that it is primarily marketed and sold as a supplement, not a medication. Currently, the FDA does not regulate the safety and purity of dietary supplements. If you decide to try CBD, talk with your doctor — if for no other reason than to make sure it won’t affect other medications you are taking. Although recent studies have started to show that CBD could help to address anxiety, a insomnia, or chronic pain, inflammation or arthritis, there is the need for more studies to pinpoint effective doses.
