What is CBD?
Where does CBD come from?
CBD is extracted and separated from specific varieties of cannabis (Cannabis Sativa). It is the second most abundant compound in cannabis, typically representing up to 40% of its extracts. CBD is a compound that can be found in both psychoactive cannabis (marijuana) and non-psychoactive cannabis (Industrial hemp). However, most legal CBD products that you find on the market will be extracts from hemp. MoFlo Botanical’s CBD products are made from industrial hemp and contain less than 0.2% THC.
How does it work?
Our body’s endocannabinoid system was found to be directly involved in the processes that keep our bodies balanced day to day, including: appetite, pain sensation, mood, memory, immune system functions, and inflammation control. Essentially, the system helps to manage homeostasis, balancing our body’s natural conditions. This system is made up of receptors that are located in the brain and nervous systems throughout the body. The body creates its own cannabinoids, called endocannabinoids, to help support this regulatory system. CBD supplements help these naturally created endocannabinoids to keep the receptors working at optimal capacity. Similar to how we use vitamin C to kick start our immune system, CBD acts as a kick starter to help the functions of the body’s central regulatory system.
Will CBD get you “high”?
While CBD can be completely separated from THC and CBD cannot get you “high,” there is still a lot of stigma as many people tend to mistake the two compounds. Just know this: It is impossible to get “high” by smoking or ingesting CBD extracted from industrial hemp plants, as they only have miniscule traces of THC (<0.3%)
Is CBD legal?
Even though it is derived from cannabis, a plant which is illegal to grow and possess ion the UK, CBD oil is still 100% legal. It can be freely sold, possessed and consumed.
