What is CBD?
CBD short for Cannabidiol is one of many cannabis derived compounds that is extracted from the Hemp plant, but does not make people feel “high” or stoned.” CBD has been making quite a buzz among scientists, healthcare professionals, and medical patients lately for its range of therapeutic benefits as a potential natural/alternative medicine.
What are the Top 5 Benefits of CBD?
1- Manage Stress and Anxiety Naturally A daily regimen with CBD reduces your body’s natural stress response and stress hormones (peace out Cortisol!)
2- Reduce Pain and Inflammation: Both sublingual (under the tongue) delivery as well as topical use of CBD (Creams, Lotions, Balms, Salves, and Bathbombs) is highly effective for reducing chronic pain and inflammation.
3- Improve Your Sleep: CBD is a safe, non-habit-forming alternative to pharmaceuticals that shows great promise for those who struggle to get restful sleep.
4- Clarity Without the High: CBD is not psychoactive or psychotropic. Yes, it is derived from Cannabis, however it only contains trace amounts (or 0%) of the compound THC which is what has the altering effect. This means that it doesn’t get you high (or altered). Rather then getting you high, it helps in healing, reducing stress, anxiety, pain and inflammation with complete mental clarity.
5- Relaxed Muscles Studies show that CBD is a promising treatment for movement disorders, helping to reduce tremors and hypermotility in Parkinson’s disease patients. By reducing muscle tremors, CBD helps insomnia in patients with movement disorders like Parkinson’s and Huntington’s disease.

Will you fail a drug test after using CBD?
Please know that generally speaking, there IS THC present in CBD Hemp Oil Products that are made with Full Spectrum or Broad Spectrum so it IS possible for someone to fail a drug test, as different types of drug tests have different detection thresholds. If your job depends on it, we would recommend you use THC-FREE products ONLY!
