WHAT IS CBD?
WHY TAKE CANNABIDIOL?
CBD is cannabidiol, a compound found naturally in hemp plants. In the past few years CBD has become one of the most buzzed-about topics in the natural wellness space because it may support a sense of peace and well-being in humans.
Don’t worry, it’s not intoxicating, so you can add CBD to your everyday routine without experiencing a high.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is found throughout the inflorescences of cannabis plants – including hemp and marijuana – in varying levels. Unlike many of the more than 140 cannabinoids that we are aware of, cannabidiol occurs naturally in significant quantities in cannabis plants like hemp, so it is easily extracted from the plant and added to consumer products.
Once extracted from the hemp plant, CBD oil can be formulated into a number of unique products, including liquids, capsules, isolate, and more. These products can be used daily to promote balance and encourage wellness.
Common CBD benefits
There are many benefits to taking a daily serving of CBD from hemp oil products. The most exciting among them is that CBD oil products help to augment the body’s naturally occurring endocannabinoids, increasing the body’s ability to promote balance (homeostasis) within its systems.
ho·me·o·sta·sis – the tendency toward a relatively stable equilibrium between interdependent elements, especially as maintained by physiological processes.
Cannabinoids are a class of active chemical compounds produced by the cannabis plant. These cannabinoids act on receptors located in our cells as part of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) and alter the release of neurotransmitters in the brain. The ECS predominantly consists of two endocannabinoid receptors: CB1, located mainly in the central nervous system (CNS), and CB2, found mainly throughout the immune system, their endogenous ligands (also known as endocannabinoids like anandamide and 2-AG), and respective synthesis and metabolizing enzymes.
There are over 140 presently discovered cannabinoids, which are largely responsible for the effects cannabis has on the body. Common cannabinoids include THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD (cannabidiol), CBN (cannabinol), and CBG (cannabigerol). THC and CBD have attracted much of the media’s attention, however, cannabinoids like CBGa are emerging as important pieces to the ECS puzzle. Cannabinoids work together with the body’s ECS to regulate the body’s natural functions.
Once the endocannabinoid system is supported in this way it is able to function more efficiently by optimizing the body’s performance each day. Although it is not critical to stimulate the endocannabinoid system daily, doing so can increase the effectiveness of CBD and the endocannabinoid system.
CBD oil benefits: flavonoids and terpenes
Present in many plants including hemp, flavonoids are antioxidants. Red wine’s beneficial effects can be largely linked to the high content of flavonoids in the vine. Small world, huh?
Terpenes contribute to a plant’s flavor, scent, and color. These compounds are the main ingredient for essential oils. Often used in food additives, perfumery and aromatherapy, some are even thought to have beneficial properties.
These two types of compounds are just part of the many benefits of full spectrum CBD oil.
CBD oil is non-intoxicating
Whether at work, play, or at rest, be assured you’ll feel your best. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the compound in marijuana that causes its euphoric effects, the primary cannabinoid in hemp, CBD, is non-intoxicating and won’t impair your ability. Hemp is naturally high in CBD containing only trace amounts of THC, meaning that with hemp you can add CBD into your routine without experiencing the negative effects of THC.
Some CBD hemp oil products, like our RSHO-X, are made with CBD isolate, making it an excellent choice for competitive athletes, government employees, parents for their small children, or anyone looking to avoid detectable THC in their CBD product.
Explore CBD research
There are over 23,000 studies and reviews published in respected peer-reviewed science and medical journals, new clinical trials being announced nearly every month, and many more studies beginning to research the effects of cannabinoids.
There’s too many to list in one place, so we invite you to do your own research into the benefits of cannabis from sources you trust and speak with your doctor before starting a new CBD oil routine.

No med card necessary
No “medical marijuana doctor” visits for you if you want to try CBD hemp oil! You do not need a medical marijuana card when buying CBD hemp oil. Because hemp based products are made from hemp.
However, many HempMeds customers mention their intention to use CBD oil products to their doctors, especially if they are worried about any interactions with their current medications.
CBD oil is federally legal
CBD derived from hemp is 100% legal to purchase and ship in the U.S. and in dozens of countries worldwide. Hemp, cannabis, and marijuana (slang term) are from the exact same plant species – Cannabis sativa. It’s common to mistake hemp and marijuana unless you know why they’re different. The easiest way to tell? If it’s under 0.3% THC content then it’s hemp.
Cannabis containing THC levels above 0.3%, extending into levels between 15-30% THC is considered medical marijuana or medical cannabis. Remember, THC is the intoxicating component of cannabis. Without these higher THC levels, there are no intoxicating effects, so you can rest easy knowing “CBD is right for me.”
Easy access to CBD oil products
Unlike medical marijuana, which requires you to visit a dispensary or give a delivery service your home address, getting CBD hemp oil at home is simple. You can shop for CBD products online and in many retail locations throughout the U.S.
CBD benefits for athletes
Many athletes have turned to CBD oil products for their balancing properties to help them perform at their peak and to bounce back faster after intense workouts or competition. CBD also packs a nutritional wallop, with many athletes opting to add it to their shakes and smoothies as part of their training programs.
