Hemp didn’t always get a bad rap. Herbalists have long used it to promote wellness. Farmers once grew it as a source of fiber to make rope and cloth.

However, in the 20th century, politics got in the way. Governments cracked down on everything cannabis-related, and we lacked the science to back up just how harmless (and excellent!) CBD was.

Today, governments are coming around. In 2018, the federal government defined hemp as a legal plant distinct from marijuana because it contains less than .03% THC. This declaration means hemp-derived CBD products, like oils and tinctures, don’t fall under anti-drug laws.

The government finally recognizes what scientists have long known: CBD will not get you high when properly sourced and manufactured. Plus, it comes with tons of health benefits.

Are you ready to discover CBD and how it can benefit you?

What’s CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the 111+ cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant and is the second most prominent cannabinoid that we’re aware of to date.

It’s non-psychoactive; however, it has made quite a name for itself in the wellness world thanks to the number of medical benefits it provides.

CBD works as a natural remedy for many common ailments, including:

  • chronic pain
  • inflammation
  • anxiety
  • depression

In addition, it helps alleviate:

  • cancer-related symptoms
  • provide neuroprotection
  • increase heart health
  • serve as an effective anti-seizure
  • work as a substance abuse treatment

Another greatbenefitis that it’s naturally sourced and super versatile, meaning the opportunities to consume it are endless. Rub it into your skin, swallow it, vape it, or even bathe in it—the choice is yours!

Celebrate CBD Day

Did you know that National CBD Day is August 8th? However, the legalization of recreational marijuana in Arizona means every day is CBD Day!

Legalization has also led to the expansion of CBD in the industry, offering tons of opportunities for you to discover CBD and the benefits you’ll gain from it.

Whether you’re new to all things cannabis or you’re already bathing in the benefits (literally), CBD is for you. And we want to see how you partake!
