What is CBD?

CBD products have exploded into the market, and there are no signs of slowing down. According to Brightfield Group, a research firm in the cannabis industry, the sales of CBD products will hit over $5 billion – this is a sharp increase of 706% over 2018.

But there is confusion about what CBD is and for whom it is meant. Whether you’re just curious or a user of CBD oil, this article will come in handy to cut through the misinformation and point you in the right direction.

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a chemical compound that originates from the cannabinoid family and naturally occurs in the cannabis plant. It has been used for wellness for many years, and scientists have discovered about 108 different types of cannabinoids present in cannabis.

The best known is Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, that has psychoactive properties. CBD with THC is associated with “high” feelings.

However, at Thryv Organics, our premium hemp-derived CBD products do not come with any psychoactive effects — instead, you’ll get therapeutic benefits.

How does CBD work? ​

CBD works when it comes in contact with our body's endocannabinoid system — your body's regulatory network consisting of naturally occurring molecules that look like cannabis.

Endocannabinoids work similarly to a neurotransmitter, transferring messages through the body to maintain homeostasis when your body is at a healthy internal balance.

According to scientists, CBD prompts the body to generate more endocannabinoids – and that may help reduce pain, anxiety, and inflammation.

​Is CBD legal?

Yes. CBD is legal.

Cannabis plants manifest in a range of varieties. But for several decades, the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) classified them as the same (as a Schedule 1 substance). Schedule 1 substances were perceived to have no accepted medical use and could be abused.

With the emergence of – also known as the Farm Bill, hemp-based cannabis products containing less than 0.3% THC became legal.

CBD with a higher level of THC than the .3% is still classified as marijuana-derived CBD and remains a Schedule I drug. All of Thryv Organics' products are THC-free or have a level less than .3% THC.

​How is CBD Used?

CBD comes in different forms. Its use will depend on preferences and personal needs. The delivery method influences its efficacy, how quickly the body responds, and the type of effect it has on one's body.

Many people are taking CBD oil orally under the tongue, including the oil in smoothies or juices, applying balm for an absorption effect, or consuming a CBD gummy. Pet owners are also giving their pooches and kitty cats CBD to help reduce pain and anxiety.
