CBD is short for Cannabidiol. CBD is found in cannabis and is one of 100+ cannabinoids.
CBD, as with all cannabinoids, interact with your endocannabinoid system. What is the endocannaboid system? Put simply, your body is made up of multiple systems, like the nervous system, which give you sensory input and makes you feel pain. The endocannabinoid system was only recently scientifically discovered, but it is know that cannabinoids directly connect to the system with tons of health benefits.
Yes! CBD is federally legal. Industrial hemp was legalized in the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (2018 Farm Bill). Before the 2018 Farm Bill, CBD was in a legal grey area, but now with hemp legalized, CBD is legal throughout the United States, including the USVI.
CBD can be extracted from any cannabis plant.
Most CBD is derived from hemp. Hemp is still cannabis, but the plant contains less than 0.3% THC. More than 0.3% THC and hemp becomes federally illegal cannabis.
CBD products should not contain any THC. With that said, CBD products are completely unregulated. Purchasing CBD products that have been lab tested is the only guarantee you are gerting what you are paying for.
