CBD is short for cannabidiol, one of more than 60 cannabinoids inside the cannabis plant. As of 2019, most all cannabinoids (including CBD) are federally legal in all 50 states — all of them except for THC, which is restricted to 0.3 percent. This low-THC variety of cannabis is called hemp, and it was legalized in the 2018 Farm Bill.
Is CBD legal?
With the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, CBD oil derived from hemp with less than 0.3% THC is legal in all 50 states.
Is CBD psychoactive?
CBD-rich hemp extracts are not psychoactive like THC-rich cannabis. Hemp produces no “high” when consumed. However, many studies have shown CBD to have anti-anxiety, anti-depressive, anti-psychotic and sleep-normalization qualities, so it does interact with the brain in many ways. But it doesn’t get you “high” like marijuana.
What does CBD do?
BD contains medicinal properties associated with cannabis without the “high” associated with marijuana. Peer-reviewed scientific studies assembled by Project CBD, a California-based non-profit organization, show that CBD can be an effective treatment of a dizzying array of conditions, including inflammation, joint and muscle pain, anxiety, seizures, muscle spasms, skin conditions, and other ailments. Some people use CBD as a sleeping aid, and find that it helps them stay awake during the day as well.
How does CBD work?
The human body naturally produces chemicals called endo-cannabinoids that interact with the endocannabinoid system, a network of receptors that help regulate other systems in the body. CBD is an exo-cannabinoid, or phytocannabinoid, that interacts with this endocannabinoid system in a similar way as endocannabinoids. In this way, CBD can influence multiple body systems indirectly by regulating the endocannabinoid system
