How CBD has become the USA's coolest food and drink ingredient

Posted by Admin on 10/12/2018 to News

The latest "it" ingredient to hit menus is CBD, short for cannabidiol, one of over 60 cannabinoids found in the cannabis sativa plant (more commonly known as marijuana). Unlike THC, the most well-known cannabinoid, CBD has no psychoactive effects. So, while it won't get you high, its reported therapeutic properties have driven CBD sales and popularity in the wellness industry.

While researchers are still trying to determine CBD's effects, some studies suggest it can help treat inflammation, pain, anxiety and seizures. The controversy around this superfood stems from inconsistent cannabis regulation at the federal and state level. Despite growing legalization, the DEA still considers cannabis -- including CBD, unless sourced from industrial hemp -- an illegal drug.
