What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, more commonly referred to as CBD, is one of over a hundred different cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. While THC, the psychoactive cannabinoid in marijuana that gives you the ‘high’ feeling, is one of the most-often talked about cannabinoids, CBD is becoming more sought after as it becomes better understood. Unlike THC, CBD is non-psychoactive, which means it will not leave you feeling ‘high’ at all. The CBD used in Apis Mercantile is sourced from an approved and registered source guaranteeing that it does not contain more than .3% THC. To make our honey, we use lab-tested CBD of the highest quality to ensure the greatest product efficacy and quality for our customers.
While there is still much research to be conducted, CBD has been shown in several preliminary studies to have potential benefits. Proponents of CBD have championed its multitude of uses and it is becoming increasingly popular as a supplement. CBD has been used to help with anxiety and to aid in sleep. Users have also taken CBD to help with nausea and to help relieve pain and inflammation. CBD is popular to ingest as a supplement or to be used topically on the skin. Topical CBD treatments are some of the most popular means of delivering CBD to the body.
CBD is a different cannabinoid than its controversial counterpart, THC. Ingesting CBD will not yield a positive result for THC on a drug test. After review, the World Health Organization has ruled that CBD has no effects that are indicative of any abuse or dependence potential. Experts also say that CBD might be helpful in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease as well as epilepsy, although more research is needed.
