What is CBD?

CBD has become one of the most popular natural products that you can find on the market today. This unique plant-based compound has allowed millions of people to make hemp a daily part of their lifestyle thanks to the way in which CBD interacts with the body. In fact, they're even giving CBD to their beloved pets!

If you’re interested in adding CBD to your daily routine, you’ve come to the right place. We’re going to help you understand this unique industry while explaining what it is about the CBD offered at CBD.co that makes it so exceptional.

What is CBD?

CBD is a cannabinoid that’s found in the cannabis plant. Typically, commercial CBD comes from the hemp plant, a cousin to the marijuana plant. While marijuana has psychoactive properties that make a person feel high, hemp does not. Therefore, taking hemp-based CBD will not make you impaired or intoxicated.

What makes CBD unique from a biological standpoint is the way in which it interfaces with the body. Your body has an endocannabinoid system that consists of cannabinoid receptors which exist along the nervous system, brain and other parts of the body. When we take CBD, this cannabinoid bonds with these receptors, allowing CBD to take effect. CBD is currently being researched for its potential positive effects, but the FDA has not yet approved its use to specifically treat any symptoms.

It’s important to note that CBD is widely considered safe and non-toxic. As of now, researchers believe that it’s nonaddictive and safe to take in high doses daily.

How is CBD Made?

The process of turning hemp into CBD oil involves isolating CBD from the many other compounds that are found in the hemp plant. Once the hemp plant has matured, the CBD is isolated and extracted. The best process of extraction involves using CO2 and gentle heat. It’s believed that the CO2 extraction process best preserves the pure properties of the cannabinoid. Additionally, when less discerning brands extract their CBD oil, they use harsh solvents like butane, which can . make their way into the body of the end user. That's why you should always prefer brands that use clean CO2 extraction if possible.

After the CBD has been extracted, it becomes an oil that’s tested for purity and quality. From there, it’s combined with other ingredients in order to become a product that people can use by vaping, topical application, or ingestion.

What is CBD Used for?

CBD has many uses, and is a hugely popular lifestyle addition that people swear by for a number of anecdotal reasons.

Although many of these anecdotal reasons involve the treatment of various symptoms, it's very important to note that CBD.co does not make any claims regarding CBD's efficacy as a treatment for any condition whatsoever.
