CBD is everywhere. However, nobody really seems to know what it really is about - is it legal? Does it make you head high? What is it REALLY all about?
Lets keep it simple and start from scratch. Cannabis sativa contains 113 cannabinoids - the two most prominent being THC and CBD.
Real pros may have heard of the subtle but massively important difference between the two of them already: Unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive (aka it does not make you high). And that makes the difference, especially in terms of its legal status.
Relax, it’s legal
We could also be explaining food law - or simply mention in one sentence that it’s legal, otherwise we would not be doing it. So you might just have to trust us and risk a naughty sip.
How it works on your body
CBD is extracted from hemp which belongs to the Cannabis Sativa family. Unlike marijuana which contains quite a lot of THC (3-15%), hemp contains only a negligibly tiny bit of it (<0.2%). In contrast to THC, CBD doesn’t make you high.
CBD simply gives you a soothing and smooth body feel and simply makes you feel in balance. Our very personal guinea pigs also report a comfortable body high and euphoric states. Reportedly it also helps people with health issues due to its anti-inflammatory nature.
