What is CBD

What exactly is CBD?

CBD, short for Cannabidiol, is 1 of the 2 major cannabinoids amongst the over 100 found in cannabis. Unlike it’s counter part, Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD does NOT have any psychoactive properties, and therefore it can’t give you that euphoric “high” feeling experienced when using marijuana/cannabis.

What's it used for?

Although it doesn’t “get you high”, its clinical effects can still be seen in the rest of the body. As of late, many patients have started to turn to CBD for their ailments, including but not limited to anxiety, depression, and even opioid withdrawal. But outside of seizure disorders, there isn't conclusive evidence to support CBD’s efficacy in those other diseases. Though the potential is there, more studies still need to be done.

CBD extract usually comes in an oil, but can be found in many different formulations, like capsules, gummies, edible foods, topical creams and scrubs and even tea and coffee! But because CBD is not water soluble (Less than 10 mg/L solubility). it is not available in a beverage form.

Texas and Federal Laws on CBD

According to the Texas State Legislature, CBD products are classified as a consumable hemp products (which are any food, drug, devices or cosmetics that contain industrial hemp or hemp- derived cannabinoids). By law, these products are not allowed to contain more that 0.3% THC. The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) does not currently regulate individual possession of CBD, but federally, the FDA has approved CBD as a prescription drug.
