What is CBD?
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a chemical compound from the Cannabis sativa plant. The CBD used by New Herbal Farms is derived from hemp, a species of this plant that contains little to no THC. THC is the chemical compound that creates the "high" found in marijuana products.
Can These Products Get Me High?
No, none of our products can create a high. Per government regulations, all of our products must have under a certain amount of THC (the psychoactive compound found in cannabis plants). Our products will leave your body feeling relaxed and pain free, without any psychoactive effects!
How Does CBD Work?
Many people are surprised to find that CBD is a naturally occuring compound, and the body already has ways of processing it.
Cannibinoid receptors are part of the body’s endocannabinoid system, a body-wide system discovered in the 1990s that affects many important functions.
Cannabinoid receptors are present throughout the body and are associated with pain sensation, appetite, immune function, mood and more. The chemicals produced by the body that interact within the EC system are called cannabinoids, and like THC and CBD, they interact with cannabinoid receptors.
