5 Facts About CBD

Before you try CBD, there are a few things you should know.

It should be no surprise that Cannabidiol (also known as CBD) has become exceedingly popular in recent years.

In 2019, the CBD market in the United States was worth just over $4 billion. Experts predict that by 2025, the market will have grown to more than $25 billion.

Every year, the cannabis and hemp-derived CBD market grows by nearly 49%, and with users spending $20-80 per month on CBD products, there appears to be no end in sight for the market’s expansion.

If you are wondering “why?” after reading all those numbers, you are not alone.

Although 64% of adults in the United States are familiar with the term CBD, a large portion of the general public still lacks knowledge about CBD and CBD products.

This includes information about CBD, including what it is, what it does, and, most importantly, what it can mean in their lives.

Since the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, which officially decriminalized industrial-grade hemp and its products and derivatives, information about CBD (the natural compound extracted from hemp) has exploded, both in terms of research and personal experience.

This means that scientists are discovering a ton of new information about CBD’s potential uses and effectiveness every day—many of these facts will astound you.

So, here are 5 facts about CBD you should know:

1. It Doesn’t Get You “High.”

The cannabis industry is divided into two camps: marijuana products and hemp products.

CBD, which is also found in marijuana plants, is responsible for many of the physical benefits that pot smokers enjoy. The psychoactive properties of THC found in marijuana, on the other hand, are unavoidable.

Many marijuana users enjoy these psychoactive properties, but others do not, and being able to isolate the positive benefits of CBD without the risk of getting high—which can cause paranoia, lethargy, and other physical and mental side effects—is godsent for them.

Because CBD is non-psychoactive, users can vape, eat, drink, and even apply it topically in large amounts without fear of losing their ability to think and function normally.

2. There Are Up To 60 Types Of Cannabinoids

CBD stands for Cannabidiol, but cannabis oil contains over 60 different cannabinoids, only a few of which have been studied for their health benefits.

3. One Can Get Legal CBD Only From Approved Cultivars Of Hemp.

Many countries, thankfully, have now legalized CBD use, but only if it contains less than 0.2 percent THC. CBD oil with a low THC content can only be obtained from certain hemp plants or cultivars. Each country has an official government-approved list of hemp plants that can be grown.

4. It Works Better With Other Cannabinoids

To treat health problems, most pharmacological drugs rely on just one chemical compound. This strategy, however, does not work with natural compounds, according to studies. The entourage effect describes how CBD works better when combined with other cannabinoids. Science is baffled as to why this effect occurs.

5. Hemp Oil And CBD Oil Are Not The Same.

Both CBD oil and hemp oil come from the same plant, which leads to many misunderstandings. However, it is worth noting that CBD oil is derived from hemp flowers and buds, whereas hemp oil is derived from the seed, which contains no cannabinoids.

These are just a few essential CBD facts to keep in mind, but there’s much more to learn. Check out the CBDfx blog for some more information.
