CBD is abbreviated for Cannabidiol, a phytocannabinoid found in Hemp. It accounts for up to 40% of all extracts from the hemp plant and is known to promote good health. As one of the many cannabinoids commonly found in the hemp plant, CBD has been praised for numerous uses. As a non-psychoactive substance, CBD is a safe and sustainable for a number of different health related concerns.
Many people introduce CBD into their health routine to support healthy life balance throughout the body. CBD is just one of over 80+ cannabinoids that can be extracted from hemp. This means that CBD and other great compounds can support the body more wholly. How do they provide support to the body? Among the many benefits that our community experience are: a sense of calm, relief from stress, recovery from exercise induced inflammation, and support for sleep quality. Research shows that using the whole plant maximizes benefits throughout the body and supplies additional wellness components, we want to deliver you as much of this powerful extract as we possibly can.
How does CBD work?
Did you know that our body is equipped with a natural network of receptors called the Endocannabinoid System? The system is charged with the task of helping us maintain healthy life balances all throughout the body. CBD and other cannabinoids work by simply pairing with those receptors and facilitating their functions in providing much-needed support to many of our body’s natural physical processes and internal systems.
Does CBD contain THC?
Kentucky Crafted does have full spectrum hemp products. Some Kentucky Crafted CBD products may contain a trace amount of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Although our products may contain less than .25% of THC, well below the legal limit of 0.3%, we strongly suggest consulting your healthcare provider prior to using any of our products, especially if you are subject to frequent drug testing.
It is important to note that THC is an inherent compound within hemp plants, albeit trace amounts. In addition, the ways in which our bodies convert certain cannabinoids and compounds derived from Hemp are not yell well understood, and future research will help to determine just how THC can be converted from certain cannabinoids within the body. These are all important factors that should be considered when trying any Kentucky Crafted product.
Are there side effects?
For most users, our bodies are well-equipped to utilize CBD in positive and healthy ways, rendering the product safe to use. However, as with any type of supplement, the risk for adverse effects is always present, especially for those who also regularly take prescribed medications. It is always best to consult with your doctor prior to using CBD, especially while pregnant, nursing, or if you have a pre-existing medical condition.
What happens after taking CBD?
Unfortunately, there are no rules of thumb when it comes to what happens inside your body after taking CBD. Why? Because it has different effects on each individual user depending on what your body needs. Much like supplements or prescriptions, every individual’s body is different, meaning that every user may experience a different response. Any type of hemp extract with CBD will effectively pair with the body’s natural Endocannabinoid system, with the ultimate goal of supporting your overall health, but depending on what your unique body needs, you will feel different effects. For some, it helps to provide a relaxed feeling, but for others, they claim that they feel more focused. We always recommend trying CBD yourself to see just how your body responds!
