The ABCs of Cannabinoids
Infinite CBD • August 13, 2021
When we are excited about something, we want to share it with our loved ones, right? Unfortunately, introducing CBD to your loved ones is not always an easy task.
Due to its affiliation with THC, and cannabis in general, CBD is often disregarded. When talking to your loved ones about CBD there are many key points to explain. Touching on these points will help you to educate your loved ones about CBD and its many benefits.
While CBD and THC are both cannabinoids, they are not the same thing. One, at a chemical level the molecules are structured very differently. When consuming CBD, you will not feel any psychoactive effects. This is in contrast to THC, which is the cannabinoid in cannabis that actually makes people “feel high.”
Hemp is cannabis, without the high levels of THC. Under Federal regulations, hemp contains 0.3% or less of THC.
It’s important to note that these days, as cannabis legislation continues to spread across the United States, that cannabis is bred to have extremely high levels of THC.
Hemp has incredibly high levels of CBD and federally-mandated low-levels of THC. Rest assured, CBD is not psychoactive. At Infinite CBD, our CBD Isolate is incredibly pure, and our lab-tests show no presence of THC in our products.
Few people know that humans have an endocannabinoid system. At times, convincing your loved ones of this can be difficult. For your skeptical loved ones, feel free to mention their CB1 and CB2 receptors. These receptors, located throughout the nervous and immune systems, the brain, and in many vital organs, respond specifically to cannabinoids.
The endocannabinoid system influences things like mood, immune and inflammatory responses, appetite, sleep patterns, and even hormone levels.
Contrary to popular belief, CBD is incredibly well-studied. It’s so well-researched that many US-based corporations are investing in CBD research.
If your loved ones aren’t convinced, point them to the extensive amount of research regarding CBD. That will help.
CBD comes in a variety of forms, meaning that CBD can cater to the various tastes of your loved ones.
At Infinite CBD, there is a CBD product for everyone!
The FDA has not introduced an outright ruling on hemp. This does not mean that hemp practices are illegal, but there are no guidelines for business owners or consumers to follow and keep in mind. However, there are a handful of FDA suggestions and regulations throughout every industry that our team follows. This ensures that customers recognize a consistency with Infinite CBD products that remind them of fully regulated products they they are accustomed to.
Here is a handy tool for checking on the local laws of your area. Based in Lakewood Colorado, Infinite CBD is fortunate to have local legislation in favor of our business and valued customers. However some states require maneuvering and extra steps for customers to receive CBD.
