What is CBD OIL?
Education, Benefits & Videos
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychotropic compound found in industrial hemp and cannabis plants. You have probably noticed CBD is getting a lot of attention recently! It is one of many active compounds from these plants. It is being used for a variety of purposes without the euphoric effects (feeling of being "high") as with THC. The 2018 Farm Bill legalized industrial hemp that has a concentration of less than 0.3% THC.
Clinical and scientific studies are finding CBD, and other cannabinoids, may have measurable health benefits and properties.
Plant and herbal extracts may also modulate the master regulatory system in our body, called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). These healthy, natural substances trigger and regulate the ECS so your body can work optimally in homeostasis and feel it's best.
The ECS is made up of CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors throughout the body, endogenous cannabinoids (Anandamide and 2 AG) and enzymes (FAAH and MAGL) which contribute to the degradation of endocannabinoids.
CB1 receptors are found largely within the central nervous system, and involve movement, emotions, coordination, memory, functional thinking, pain response and the endocrine system. CB2 receptors are found peripherally throughout the body and influence immune response, digestive health, pain and inflammation.
Cannabinoids have been shown to indirectly influence these receptor sites by inhibiting the degradation of the body's own endogenous endocannabinoids. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) may work best if levels of anandamide and 2AG are supported and plentiful within the body. Continued clinical and scientific research on the ECS and plant based (Phyto) cannabinoids are in process. These studies are needed to make strides in the regulatory and healthcare industry. We believe data showing product safety, quality, efficacy and transparency will lead this industry.

CBD in TEXAS
2018 Farm Bill Act
Scientific research continues to be performed and vetted privately and academically. In 2018, there were 70 studies investigating CBD as a medicine. The studies must be backed up by the U.S government, the DEA and the FDA before CBD extracts are considered a drug.
With the passing of the 2018 US Farm Bill, section 12619, CBD is declassified as a Class 1 status under the Controlled Substances Act. If the hemp extract is grown and produced under the guidance of this bill, it is legal for use and purchase in all 50 states, tribes and US territories. It is however, important to check each state, tribe and territory for any additional acts or laws passed related to CBD acquired from Cannabis vs Industrial Hemp.
Many people are choosing a more holistic path, using natural ingredients, and are gravitating toward CBD and plant bioceuticals. Scientific studies show numerous health benefits, but it is important to note further research is needed before anyone can say it “cures” or “prevents” any disease or condition
