WHAT IS CBD?

These days CBD is becoming a more prevalent topic of conversation among many people who are trying to live a healthy and balanced lifestyle. CBD or Cannabidiol, is a compound found primarily in marijuana and hemp plants. It is found to be mostly harvested from these plants’ flowers and leaves.  It has been discovered that our bodies actually have receptors for this specific compound. These receptors are labeled as CB1 and CB2 receptors. These two receptors take the CBD in and utilize it, which essentially creates the various types of effects that a lot of our customers can experience.  The common experiences that we hear, but are not limited to include; relief from daily stresses, ritualized sleep patterns, and anti-inflammatory benefits. These benefits have also been discovered to work for pets as well!

IS CBD ILLEGAL IN NEW YORK?

Marijuana and hemp plants are very close relatives as a classification and are pretty similar when it comes to smell, taste, appearance, in my own experiences of comparing the two together.  Hemp is classified as a hemp plant, as long as it’s THC, or Tetrahydrocannabinol, is lower than 0.3%.  THC is what most people recognize from marijuana, as the psychoactive compound, or the mind-altering substance.  In our state of New York, all CBD products are currently legal, as long as they have a THC content of less than the 0.3% (2020).  To ensure that we carry all legal and safe products we request lab testing information before we order anything.  All of these documents are readily accessible to anyone that walks through our door.
