What is CBD

Cannabidiol (CBD) is extracted from the industrial hemp plant and is non-psychoactive.

The fact that hemp-based CBD is non-psychoactive makes it an appealing option for patients looking for relief from inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis, seizures, spasms, and other conditions without disconcerting feelings of lethargy or dysphoria.

While significant discoveries have been made about the medical benefits of CBD, there is much left to reveal about this miraculous cannabinoid.

The Confusion Around CBD

There is a common misunderstanding with the names Cannabis, Marijuana, and Hemp. It is important to know the Cannabis plant and understand the difference between the species.

All Hemp Life products are derived from the Hemp plant and do not contain THC (the psychotropic compound that gives you a “high” feeling).

Why Use CBD?

CBD has been linked to helping with a number of physical and mental issues

Numerous clinical studies and scientific research support the potential of CBD as a treatment for a wide range of conditions. The conditions listed here have at least one, and in many cases, several clinical studies on CBD that show it may help. Some of the studies are also on THC in combination with CBD but the majority of the studies are on CBD.

The Endocannabinoid System

The Endocannabinoid System is perhaps the most important physiologic system involved in establishing and maintaining human health. Cannabinoid receptors are found throughout the body including the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells.

In each tissue, the cannabinoid system performs different tasks. The goal is always the same, homeostasis (the maintenance of a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment).
