Hemp has been around in America, well, as long as America has been around. It was a cash crop in the American colonies, crucial to the economies of some states. Because hemp in America was heavily taxed, research about CBD was mostly advanced abroad. Primarily, scientists were able to establish the difference between intoxicating THC and the non-intoxicating compound, CBD. It wasn’t until the mid-2000s when an infant in Colorado (shocker) found major relief from an epileptic disorder by using a kind of high-CBD, low-THC cannabis after having no luck with traditional treatments. It was after this that CBD began to slowly gain popularity as a wellness product in America.
What is CBD (and What is Not CBD)?
CBD is short for cannabidiol, which is a chemical compound derived from hemp plants. This naturally-occurring substance is commonly used in wellness products to achieve relaxation and combat the effects of inflammation. CBD is not THC, the major active ingredient in marijuana – which you may have experienced in college. CBD, unlike THC, is not addictive and not psychoactive, so it won’t make you feel like you’re an 18-year-old living in the dorms (and it won’t smell the same either!).
In 2012, Washington and Colorado were the first states to legalize recreational marijuana and since then the market for hemp-related products has exploded. Cannabidiol, more CBD products seem to be everywhere you turn, but information about them is lacking. Huntsboro Hemp Company offers locally sourced, high quality CBD personal care products and we’d love to tell you what they’re all about.
What is a CBD Tincture?
Our most popular products are our line of THC-free, premium CBD tinctures. A tincture is a safe-to-ingest liquid made of concentrated herbal extracts. Our tinctures are made from naturally occurring, organic ingredients AND use our own honey as a natural sweetener. When your tincture comes in the mail, you’ll see a bottle that looks very similar to what you’d expect when purchasing an essential oil. The cap of the bottle is a dropper, similar to something you may have used in a high school chemistry class. The doses released by the dropper are very small, so you don’t need to worry about feeling too lethargic. CBD from naturally-grown hemp and naturally occurring terpenes make Huntsboro’s CBD tinctures a top-of-the-line product for anyone looking for relief from pain, anxiety or sleeplessness. Because Huntsboro Hemp Company CBD tinctures are THC-free, they are non-addictive and do not have the psychoactive effects typically associated with hemp.
What Kind of CBD Tinctures Does Huntsboro Hemp Offer?
