In case you haven’t already seen our latest posts, Longevity Wellness is going GREEN FOR SPRING! We are dedicating all of April to our beloved CBD OIL!
So, with all of this buzz, what actually is the science of CBD oil and why is it so powerful?
Our friends at Coastal CBD broke down some important info for us:
CBD (Cannabidiol) is a non-intoxicating compound known as a cannabinoid, found predominantly in the cannabis plant.
All mammals have receptors throughout their brains and bodies that process the cannabinoids we make ourselves, and the ones we consume from plants as well. Consuming CBD helps your endocannabinoid system of receptors restore internal balance to your body and mind, and can potentially provide an amazing number of health benefits including relief of chronic pain, depression, anxiety, and a whole lot more.
As CBD is being discovered by more and more people and its popularity continues to grow, many studies have begun regarding the specifics of its effectiveness. Although research is somewhat limited We are so excited to see the what the results are finding in the next few years! In the meantime, we continue to hear so many positive stories about how CBD has been enhancing lives.
The Agriculture Act of 2018 (aka The 2018 Farm Bill) legalized all cannabis extracts containing less than .3% THC.
When buying your CBD, it’s important to remember to check how reputable the company you’re buying from is. Remember to ALWAYS make sure that it provides lab testing results to ensure you’re getting the amount you’re being sold!
That’s why we love getting our CBD from Coastal CBD--it is the brand Green Roads, who has a scannable code on each label so you can see the lab results of the exact batch you’re buying!
