CBD and Hemp. What it is, and how it can benefit me.
Extracts from the hemp plant have been used for centuries. Several experts have even traced its many uses back to the Ancient Chinese Pharmacopoeia, which was written around 5,000 B.C. Hemp was considered a medicine in the United States, and could be found in the U.S. Pharmacopoeia from 1850 until the early 1940’s. People had been farming hemp for centuries in the United States, including many of our founding fathers. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson had large hemp farms. Hemp agriculture was banned in the United States in 1937. However, hemp products that are imported from countries where hemp can be grown legally, are imported into the United States every day. These products are found online, and in thousands of retail stores nationwide. Hemp clothing, hemp food, hemp skincare, and hemp dietary supplements are readily available to consumers in the United States.
Cannabidiol or CBD is considered a food nutrient or dietary supplement that can be derived from the mature hemp stalk. One of the many benefits of CBD is that it can introduce cannabinoids into the body without the psychotropic/euphoric effects of THC.

Discovery of the endocannabinoid system ignited changes and research. When scientists and doctors discovered the endocannabinoid system, it quickly became one of science’s newest and most amazing discoveries. The endocannabinoid system regulates sleeping, eating, relaxation, inflammation responses and even cognitive function. Science knows of two types of cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body. (CB1 and CB2) These receptors are most abundant in the brain and in the immune system. So simply put, your endocannabinoid system is responsible for making sure that your entire body is working optimally.
