What’s Up With the CBD Craze?

“Cannabidiol is a chemical in the Cannabis sativa plant, also known as marijuana or hemp. Over 80 chemicals, known as cannabinoids, have been identified in the Cannabis sativa plant. While delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the major active ingredient in marijuana, cannabidiol is also obtained from hemp, which contains only very small amounts of THC” (WEBMD, 2021).

Selling hemp became legal in the USA 2018. Hemp-derived CBD products (with less than 0.3 percent THC) is considered legal from a federal standpoint (Kubala, 2018). Since then all types of shops and farms have emerged in this new market.

CBD has effects on the brain and additional research is needed to explain the exact cause for these effects. Cannabidiol seems to prevent the breakdown of a chemical in the brain that affects pain, mood, and mental function (Kubala, 2018). Many take CBD for anxiety and stress.
