CBD 101

First things first.
What is CBD?

We hear the word CBD constantly, but does anyone really know what it is or what it stands for? Various information about CBD is available, but is any of it true? Here at Kosher Blends we pride ourselves in being transparent with all our products.

CBD, short for Cannabidiol – is a powerful natural compound found in hemp plant that has been used for wellness for thousands of years. It is one of at least 113 cannabinoids found in a hemp plant. And yes, although hemp is considered a cannabis plant, do not get it confused with its close relative, the marijuana plant.

Difference between a hemp plant & marijuana plant, defined in the 2018 Farm Bill:
Hemp Plant = less than 0.3% THC

Marijuana Plant = more than 0.3% THC

A derived hemp plant will not cause any psychoactive effects (the “high” effects). At Kosher Blends, we take one step further to remove any trace amounts of THC during our multi-step purification process. So, enjoy our products with peace of mind.

So why CBD and what does it do?

CBD interacts with your endocannabinoid system (ECS), which plays a role in a number of important functions, including mood, memory and sleep. As mentioned, CBD, is one of many cannabinoids, which our bodies naturally produce, but can diminish due to internal imbalances or external stressors. Studies have shown that combining CBD with many other natural occurring cannabinoids may help bring back balance and body wellness.
