Frequently Ask Questions about Cannabinoid (CBD)
A nautral way to help with your health and wellness.
How Does CBD Work?
We are learning more about CBD every day. What we’ve learned so far from research is that our bodies have something called an Endocannabinoid System, which consists of receptors located on cells throughout the body. Compounds like CBD interact with these receptors for potential anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, anti-nausea and many other effects still being studied. The US National Library of Medicine is a great place to learn more: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed.
Who benefits the most from taking CBD?
It’s becoming a well-known fact that taking CBD oil can help many people with anxiety and depression. CBD may also help people experience less chronic pain. Those who especially suffered from arthritis and other cases of muscle inflammation found relief after using CBD oil. For others, it has helped them sleep much better and can be soothing for migraine headaches too.
Where does your CBD come from?
There are two ways that hemp can be legally sold in the US. The first is legally imported hemp extract seeds and stalks. All of the initial manufacturers we carried followed that route and imported hemp from Europe, but the second way-domestically grown hemp-is becoming much more prevalent. Domestically grown hemp extract is legal under 2014 US Farm Bill as one of a number of nutrition and agricultural products.
What is the difference between CBD and THC?
Chemically they are both cannabinoid compounds, which makes their molecule look similar, but they are very different. There are over 85 cannabinoids. THC and CBD are the two most common and the most studied. THC is a psychoactive compound, whereas CBD is non-psychoactive.
Is CBD Legal in the United States?
Yes, all CBD from industrial hemp is federally legal. CBD from domestically grown plants must come with state certifications and can come from flowers, seeds or stalks. CBD from imported industrial hemp can come from seeds and stalks only and is legal in all 50 states as a food or supplement as a natural constituent of hemp plant. We carry products manufactured from both domestic and imported hemp.
Is CBD Legal in Tennessee?
The confusion over legality stems from the origin of the CBD. CBD from hemp is perfectly legal in TN. However, CBD from cannabis is NOT legal in TN. Most packaging does not contain a label stating the source, so you’ll need to be careful to buy from appropriate sources. All of our products are 3rd Party tested and analysis is available.
