CBD, also known as cannabidiols, is the non-psychoactive element of marijuana and industrial hemp. Unlike marijuana, industrial hemp and hemp products contain trace amounts or no THC* and can be used in everyday applications. Studies** have shown that CBD can help with pain relief, anxiety and possibly help reduce seizures. Pharmaceutical companies are also getting into the CBD market, studying cannabidiols and infusing CBD in new medications. Research is still limited and none of these findings have been approved by the FDA yet. As the researchers continues to find more benefits, we will continue to provide you with the latest information! Here are some options on how CBD can be used. CAUTION: Products that do contain legal trace amounts of THC could still affect a drug test!
Hemp flower can be ground down and mixed with an oil of your choice (coconut & EVOO are most common). To infuse, heat the oil and flower together for 4-6 hours on low in a crock pot (keep the temperature around 220 degrees F), then strain. Coconut oil and EVOO area also great for the skin.
Infused hemp oil can be used as an additive for a lotion or balm to be rubbed on the skin. After infusing the oil of your choice, add the oil to an existing lotion or find a recipe online to make your own.
Ground industrial hemp can be mixed with other herbs for a flavorful tea. You can get very creative with your flavors and still have the benefits of CBD! Honey can also be infused with CBD and then added your beverage of choice.
