CBD and hemp are often talked about together, so are they the same thing?

Hemp Hemp is a strain of the ‘cannabis sativa’ plant species.  Although cannabis and industrial hemp both derive from cannabis sativa and contain the psychoactive component tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) Unlike cannabis, hemp has lower concentrations of THC and higher concentrations of cannabidiol (CBD). In short, neither hemp nor CBD will get you high. Hemp has been grown for thousands of years. These days, hemp is used to make a variety of commercial and industrial products. The 2018 Farm Bill changed hemp from a controlled substance to an agricultural commodity, legalizing hemp federally, which made it easier for farmers to get production licenses, loans to grow hemp and federal crop insurance.

Reading a CBD Label: How to Find a Quality Product

Maybe you’ve been considering taking cannabidiol (CBD), to see if it eases symptoms of chronic pain, anxiety, or another condition. But reading and understanding CBD product labels can be overwhelming, especially if you’re new to CBD.

DeGroote Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research in Hamilton, Ontario. Last year, the F.D.A. approved Epidiolex, a purified CBD extract, to treat rare seizure disorders in patients 2 years or older after three randomized, double-blind and placebo-controlled clinical trials with 516 patients that showed the drug, taken along with other medications, helped to reduce seizures. These types of studies are the gold standard in medicine, in which participants are divided by chance, and neither the subject nor the investigator knows which group is...

The CBD industry is flourishing, conservatively projected to hit $16 billion in the United States by 2025. Already, the plant extract is being added to cheeseburgers, toothpicks and breath sprays. More than 60 percent of CBD users have taken it for anxiety, according to a survey of 5,000 people, conducted by the Brightfield Group, a cannabis market research firm. Chronic pain, insomnia and depression follow behind. What is CBD?

CBD For Pain Relief

BY Admin, “Underdiagnosed and undertreated, chronic pain amounts to an unrecognized public health crisis afflicting more than 116 million adult Americans each year and costing the nation $560 billion to $635 billion annually in medical and economic expenses.” (Institute of Medicine report). This is not only an issue in the USA but also in most western countries. Back, knee, joint… you name it – it hurts. This is also a major factor in the current opioid crisis because opioid drugs were over-prescribed in an attempt to control their discomfort. We have several CBD-based products that may help with the pain. First, CBD oil is favored by many people who are trying to deal with pain as well as to reduce the intake of...
