You’re not tripping: CBD-infused products are kinda everywhere, from the beauty aisle to the pet store, shelves are stocked with tinctures, gummies, dog treats, body butters and balms and more.
That’s because the 2018 Farm Bill Act legalized the growing and selling of the super sustainable, magically mundane, humble hemp plant and hemp-derived products. Since then, the variety and availability of hemp products has exploded, and that’s a good thing.
Hemp is super sustainable. It typically grows taller than other types of cannabis plants, but they’re all hardy, fast-growing, and require little water. From stalk to root, the entire plant has a variety of uses from hemp milk, textiles, construction, hemp seed oil, and Cannabidiol (CBD).
CBD is a chemical compound found in all cannabis plants and understood to be an effective pain reliever. Science-backed studies have credited CBD with reducing anxiety, sleeplessness, depression, and arthritis.
Hemp vs Cannabis
In the past, hemp may have been stigmatized due to close relation to its cousin, colloquially known as marijuana, pot, or weed. Although similar in appearance, there is a major difference between the two.
Legally, hemp is defined as a cannabis plant that contains 0.3 percent or less THC, while marijuana is a cannabis plant that contains more than 0.3 percent THC. THC is the psychoactive chemical compound in pot that gets you “high.” That’s important for people interested in the therapeutic benefits of the hemp plant without the “getting high” part.
How does CBD work?
When CBD is used topically or ingested, it interacts with neuroreceptors in your endocannabinoid system (ECS) and sends signals to help regulate your movement, mood, homeostasis, and immune system. Research suggests that CBD can help with pain, nausea, and other symptoms associated with a variety of conditions.
CBD is a powerful anti-inflammatory. Applied topically to affected areas like sore feet and ankles or cramping hands, a CBD-infused balm can help reduce painful swelling.
For eczema and similar skin conditions, CBD almost immediately stops the stinging, itchy sensations and cools overheated skin. When combined with rich Shea butter, a CBD balm makes a powerful addition to combating dry, flaky skin.
Recent studies found that for people who experience pain from nerve damage and TMJ found significant relief using CBD cream. It’s also great for massaging restless legs and post-workout aches.
