How is CBD produced?
CBD comes from industrial hemp, a variety of the cannabis plant specifically used for industrial products. It has a variety of uses and has been used for thousands of years. It is a fast growing plant and over 10,000 years ago was first used to spin into usable fibers, later being refined for use in textiles, paper and clothing. It has also been used in plastics, paint, and animal feed. CBD has very low concentrations of THC and is part of a different strain with very different properties, eliminating the negative psychoactive effects of THC. The United States imports the most hemp than any other country in the world. Rest assured that CBD is safe and legal.

Understanding the difference between CBD and THC
Many people are confused by the terms and think that CBD has the same effects as marijuana (THC) however it does not. It actually seems to reduce the intoxicating effects that THC causes. CBD is mainly used for relaxation, as it helps the relieve stress and anxiety, putting you in a good mood.
Cannabidiol is one of at least 113 active cannabinoids identified in cannabis. It is a major phytocannabinoid, accounting for up to 40% of the plant's extract.
Concentrated CBD cannabis oil extracts can be heated and inhaled with a vape pen. Inhalation is good for treating acute symptoms that require immediate attention; the effects can be felt within minutes and typically last for a couple of hours.
The time of onset and duration of effect vary depending on the method of administration. CBD oil products can be taken sublingually, orally (as edibles, lozenges, beverages, tinctures, and gel caps), or applied topically (salves, creams). As the CBD oil effects taken orally can last for much longer, but the effects onset is much slower than inhalation.
CBD offers natural protection against the marijuana high. Numerous studies suggest that CBD acts to reduce the intoxicating effects of THC, such as memory impairment and paranoia. Although CBD and THC act on different pathways of the body, they seem to have many of the same medical benefits.
CBD is non-psychoactive because it does not act on the same pathways as THC. These pathways, called CB1 receptors, are highly concentrated in the brain and are responsible for the mind-altering effects of THC. CBD does not interfere with several psychomotor and psychological functions CBD is well tolerated and safe even at high doses.
Unlike THC, CBD does not cause a high. It gives the chemical a significant advantage as medicine, since health professionals prefer treatments with minimal side effects.
