Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a natural compound found in the Cannabis plant. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), another well-known compound found in cannabis, CBD does not produce psychoactive effects. This means that it won’t make you feel “high” or alter your state of mind.
CBD has been shown to have numerous potential health benefits. It may help to alleviate symptoms related to anxiety and depression, reduce inflammation and pain, improve sleep quality, and even treat certain types of seizures.
The human body contains an endocannabinoid system (ECS), which plays a role in regulating various bodily functions such as mood, appetite, pain sensation, and immune response. CBD interacts with the ECS by binding to cannabinoid receptors located throughout the body.
CBD can be extracted from both hemp and marijuana plants; however, products derived from hemp are legal under federal law since they contain less than 0.3% THC. At Tahoe CBD we only use high-quality industrial hemp grown in Colorado for all our products.
