CBD has become a popular topic among health and wellness experts.
There are two types of CBD on the market today. CBD from the hemp plant contains less than 0.3% THC and is legal for use throughout the United States. You can find various forms of this CBD at your local drug and health and wellness stores. CBD from the marijuana plant contains more than 0.3% THC. This form of CBD is only legal for use and is only sold in states where recreational cannabis is legal.
In Washington, local Cannabis Retailers are only permitted to carry marijuana-derived CBD. In fact, cannabis retailers in Spokane can only sell marijuana products and items used to consume marijuana. This is Washington’s way of separating the legal and non-legal forms of CBD, but the only real difference is in the ratios of THC:CBD.
Why do I care about CBD and THC?
CBD and THC are both cannabinoids. Cannabinoids are chemical compounds that interact with receptors in the brain and body. They are naturally in the human body and are also found in the cannabis plant. CBD, or Cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring cannabinoid within cannabis plants. It is extracted and used in many different forms for therapeutic reasons. Unlike THC, CBD does not produce psychoactive effects. In other words, CBD does not make you high. THC, or Tetrahydrocannabinol, is also a naturally occurring cannabinoid. Many people use it for its mind, body, and mood effects.
CBD’s Possible Effects
While there is still much research to be done on the full effects of CBD, there have been initial studies that show CBD can help with the following:
- Chronic Pain
- Muscle Aches
- Weight Loss
- Chemotherapy Side Effects
- Substance Abuse
- High Blood Pressure
- Neurological Disorders like Epilepsy, Fibromyalgia & Multiple Sclerosis
Did you know…
Infused topicals will not get you high. When applied to the skin, the cannabinoids from the topical usually do not reach your bloodstream. The result gives you all the therapeutic benefits from the cannabinoids without the psychoactive effects!
