CBD is believed to help with various conditions, such as:
inflammatory bowel disease
other mental disorders
How does it work?
CBD stimulates the endocannabinoid system by promoting homeostasis in the body, thus reducing the sensation of many of the above conditions.
Where do I find it?
Green Mountain Grown CBD has different strains of USDA Certified 100% Organic CBD Flower, with a copy of the Certificate of Analysis as well. The best of the best!
ALWAYS buy from a reputable grower.
The cheap price of CBD products in gas stations might be tempting, but they are NOT the way to go. Those products are cheap because most of the first-time growers that jumped into this new industry were taken by surprise by the infrastructure and equipment requirements needed to properly harvest, process, and store this new commodity. Most of the hemp plants harvested in the northeast are hung up to dry in old drafty, dirty barns that had been used to house livestock over the years. This is a recipe for a health disaster. It promotes bacteria growth, mold, and degradation of the plant. Yuck!
Is it legal?
Thanks to the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, zero THC CBD is not illegal in any state in the USA. According to federal law, it is legal in all 50 states. ALWAYS check with local guidelines regardless.
CBD vs THC: Will it get me high?
In short, no. Both CBD and THC have an impact on cannabinoid type 1 (CB1) receptors in the brain. CBD is a (CB1) antagonist and blocks any intoxicating impact caused by the CB1 receptors.
THC activates these receptors which is the reason for the high associated with marijuana.
