The Top 6 CBD Facts You Need To Know
#1: Key Ingredientchevron_right
Cannabis contains more than 80 unique compounds called “cannabinoids.” Two of the most common found within the plant are THC and CBD (otherwise known as Cannabidiol). Of all the compounds, these two have received the most extensive scientific study.
#2: Won't Get You Highchevron_right
The euphoria commonly associated with cannabis is caused by the THC compound binding to CB1 nerve receptors in the brain. Since CBD is only able to bind to CB2, there is no way to become intoxicated from its use.
#3: CBD From Hemp Is Legalchevron_right
Despite being legal in a few states, marijuana continues to remain illegal under Federal law. Thankfully, CBD can be made from the mature stalks of the industrial hemp plants and can be legally imported into the United States under Federal Law. This allows consumers to get the CBD treatments they need without fear of violating any Federal Laws.
#4: Cannabinoid Levels Varychevron_right
The percentage of both CBD and THC varies depending on the type of plant. Industrial hemp has no virtually no THC, while marijuana grown for recreational use tends to have much higher levels of THC and lower degrees of CBD. Specially-bred industrial hemp contains the highest amount of CBD.
#5: No Medical Recommendation Neededchevron_right
If the CBD products you require are made from CBD and manufactured from the mature stalk of industrial hemp plant and sourced from a country that allows hemp cultivation, you do not need a medical recommendation in any U.S. states to legally obtain them. If the products are manufactured from medicinal marijuana, or from the leaves and flowers of industrial hemp, however, you must reside in a state where medical marijuana and/or industrial hemp is legal, and you are required to have a medical recommendation.
#6: Has Medical Valuechevron_right
Isodiol and other CBD companies are not at liberty to make medical claims on the potential health benefits of CBD. We encourage you to do your own research. A 2013 review published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, as well as a 2003 U.S. Government Patent, found that CBD acts as an antioxidant, reducing free radicals that can cause neurodegenerative disorders. The 2013 study, along with the clinical trials performed in the 2003 patent claims a list many potential health benefits. These and other credible sources can be found with your own due diligence.
Isodiol's CBD 99 is the highest quality CBD in the industry.
