CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of many cannabionoids or molecules produced by the cannabis family of plants. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC, the primary psychoactive element in Cannabis, CBD is NON-PSYCHOACTIVE, meaning it doesn’t have a strong effect on cognitive brain activity and does NOT cause the “high” associated with Cannabis.
The answer is yes!!
CBD oil that is derived from industrial hemp is legal at the federal level. Industrial hemp is described by the 2018 Farm Bill as having less than 0.3% THC, which is the compound that produces the high associated with marijuana. CBD is not intoxicating, and will not generate a high. This is part of the reason the legality surrounding this compound is more relaxed.
The 2018 Farm Bill was signed into law in December 2018, effectively legalizing hemp at the federal level by removing it from the federal list of controlled substances and classifying it as an agricultural commodity. As a result, CBD from hemp is legal nationwide at the federal level. The Hemp Farming Act, included in the 2018 Farm Bill, is considered the most important victory in the history of the hemp industry in the United States.
In May, 2019 the U.S. Department of Agriculture released a memo explicitly allowing hemp to be transported across State lines so long as it complies with a State-approved program.
The simple answer is YES you can travel with CBD, all the products on this site are hemp derived and therefore completely legal.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) updated its policies about traveling with Cannabis, stating that it’s actually completely LEGAL to travel with hemp-derived CBD products, or anything that’s been approved by the food and drug administration. (FDA)
So you’ve decided to join the growing revolution of people using cannabidiol (CBD) for relief and support with anxiety, arthritis, pain, menopause symptoms, insomnia and other health issues. Now comes the truly hard decision: tinctures, topicals, vaporizers, edibles… Which is best for you? And how much should you take?
If you’re overwhelmed by the wide variety of CBD products, you are not alone. Each method delivers CBD to your body in a different way, which affects what it can be used for and how often you’ll want to take it. Adding to that confusion is the fact that each of our bodies responds differently to CBD, meaning there is no one-size-fits-all recommendation.
With more than 65 different targets throughout your body, CBD has a staggering variety of therapeutic properties. Focusing on just one or two or those properties will help you find the best product and dosage quicker.
Ask yourself what you want CBD to improve. Do you want emotional support? Do you have a lot of arthritic pain? Are you just curious to see if life is somehow “better” with it?
Many people benefit from tracking their progress. You could use a score to rate your symptoms or try journaling about your current experience. Creating a baseline record will help you judge the effectiveness of your CBD treatment.
How well each method works varies from person to person, and is influenced by many factors so dosing is a highly individual process.
It’s always recommended to start with a very low dose to make sure you don’t react poorly to any of the product’s ingredients. Try one or two drops of an oral formulation, or a tiny puff off a vaporizer… this will be well below the recommended serving size listed on the product.
Then, wait until after the CBD has peaked and is leaving your system before trying a slightly higher dose. Wait at least an hour for vaporizers, and 6+ hours for an oral formula. You can take more sooner, but any effects you feel will be the cumulative result of both doses.
Cannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds found in the Cannabis plant. Of over 480 different compounds present in the plant, only around 66 are termed cannabinoids.
The most well known among these compounds is the delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, which is the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis. Cannabidiol (CBD) is another important component, which makes up about 40% of the plant resin extract.
Classes of cannabinoids
The cannabinoids are separated into the following subclasses:
* Cannabigerols (CBG)
* Cannabichromenes (CBC)
* Cannabidiol (CBD)
* Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)
* Cannabinol (CBN)
* Cannabinodiol (CBDL)
* Other cannabinoids including cannabicyclol (CBL), cannabielsoin (CBE) and cannabitriol (CBT) Cannabinoids exert their effects by interacting with specific cannabinoid receptors present on the surface of cells.
These receptors are found in different parts of the central nervous system and the two main types of cannabinoid receptors in the body are CB1 and CB2.
In 1992, a naturally occurring substance in the brain that binds to CB1 was discovered, called anandamide. This cannabinoid-like chemical and others that were later discovered are referred to as endocannabinoids.
Despite their similar chemical structures, CBD and THC don’t have the same psychoactive effects. In fact, CBD is a non-psychoactive compound. That means it does not produce the “high” associated with THC. THC binds with the cannabinoid 1 (CB1) receptors in the brain. It produces a high or sense of euphoria.
CBD binds very weakly, if at all, to CB1 receptors. In fact, it can interfere with the binding of THC and dampen the psychoactive effects.
Here is the difference between the 2
CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD, which is produced by removing all other compounds found in the plant including terpenes, flavonoids, plant parts, and other cannabinoids.
CBD Isolate is typically extracted from Hemp, due to its low to non-existent THC-content. Full spectrum CBD is an extract that contains all compounds found naturally occurring in the plant, including terpenes, essential oils, and other cannabinoids.
The full spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes, and essential oils extracted from the plant work together to magnify the therapeutic benefits of each individual cannabinoid. This is commonly referred to as the entourage effect.
Terpenes (and terpenoids) are aromatic organic hydrocarbons found in many plants and even some insects. Plants developed terpenes to ward off herbivores that might eat them and to attract helpful predators and pollinators. Cannabis (marijuana) has naturally high levels of terpenes. “Dank” flower gets its dank stank from being rich in terpenes.
If you are familiar with “essential oils” you already have some experience with terpenes. Terpenes are found in high quantities in various essential oils. For example, limonene is in the essential oil of lemons and limes, alpha and beta-pinene are found in the essential oil of pine needles. The terpenes in these essential oils contribute to the uplifting effects you experience if you smell the rind of a lemon or walk through a pine forest. Likewise, the terpene linalool predominates the essential oil of lavender, and is known for creating feelings of relaxation and ease. All of these terpenes, and thousands more, are found in high concentrations in the bud of cannabis.
Although CBD is non psychoactive it is not recommended to drive when consuming high doses of CBD.
The simple answer is no CBD is not is any way addictive
