CBD is the hottest thing on the health market right now – should you be using it?
Promoting benefits like pain relief, reducing anxiety, increasing heart health, managing acne and even more, makes CBD the most talked about new therapy in health and wellness. While there is still much research to be done, we know CBD oil is a safe compound from the cannabis plant that has no psychoactive properties and can help Ways2Well patients manage many ailments effectively and naturally.
What is CBD?
CBD (cannabidiol) is a natural compound found in cannabis and hemp plants. CBD does not contain THC, the psychoactive ingredient that is mind altering and illegal in many states; so CBD oil is incredibly safe to use and beneficial for many common ailments. CBD oil is made by extracting CBD from the cannabis plant, then diluting it with a carrier oil like coconut or hemp seed oil.
Is CBD legal?
Yes. All 50 states have laws legalizing CBD, with some restrictions. The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (AKA the 2018 Farm Bill) removed hemp from the Controlled Substances Act, making way for the cultivation and use of several hemp-derived products.
