What is CBD?

CBD sometimes gets a bad rep from it’s cousin cannabis. While in the same family, CBD is harvested from the hemp plant. There are no psychoactive properties from this plant and it’s most popular claim to fame is being used to make paper. Hemp oil made into CBD is a completely natural process.

According to Harvard Health PublishingCBD stands for cannabidiol. It is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis (marijuana). While CBD is an essential component of medical marijuana, it is derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant. While CBD is a component of marijuana (one of hundreds), by itself it does not cause a “high.” 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 won’t get you high, is not derived from the same plant as marijuana and is legal.


CBD is listed to assist with anxiety, PTSD, insomnia, depression, body aches, stress reduction, acne management, and chronic pain relief.

According to Healthline “Recent research has linked CBD with several benefits for the heart and circulatory system, including the ability to lower high blood pressure.”

The New York Times reported ” For students with generalized social anxiety, a four-minute talk, with minimal time to prepare, can be debilitating. Yet a small experiment in the journal Neuropsychopharmacology found that CBD seemed to reduce nervousness and cognitive impairment in patients with social anxiety in a simulated public speaking task.”

Permanente Journal (run by Kaiser Permanente) findings stated ” In an outpatient psychiatric population, sleep scores displayed no sustained improvements during the 3-month study. Anxiety scores decreased fairly rapidly, and this decrease was sustained during the study period. These results are consistent with the existing preclinical and clinical data on CBD. CBD was well accepted and well tolerated in our patients. Side effects were minimal (mainly fatigue) and may be related to dosing.”

While CBD is still being studied, existing information has shown there are actual benefits to using CBD products.

CBD can be used for a variety of things and comes in a bunch of different application methods. There are CBD oils, bath salts, lotions, rubs, vapes, candies, sprays and edibles! The method of delivery is dependent on your preference and what you are using CBD for.
