What is CBD?

What is CBD?

CBD stands for cannabidiol. CBD is the extract from the flower buds of marijuana or hemp that do not give off an intoxication, high, or euphoric sensations. CBD is proven to give off a relaxing sensation to the body and help with inflammation, but does not affect the mind or any cognitive processes. 

What is hemp?

Hemp is a strain of Cannabis sativa or more likely known as marijuana. Hemp is a strain of the Cannabis plant that produces less THC and more CBD than other Cannabis plants. CBD is derived from the hemp plant because of the decrease/ elimination of the psychoactive effects that Cannabis usually causes when consumed. This means that CBD is safe and not a drug for any euphoric productions or hallucinations

like the effect of marijuana.

How is CBD used now?

CBD is used in many forms of extracts from bath products to coffee to CBD edibles. It is proven to treat many cases of anxiety, inflammation, to irritability and sleepiness. CBD is good for relaxation of tight muscles and helps many people to actually focus better and stay awake. 

Where exactly does CBD come from?

CBD is an extraction of hemp. CBD extracted from hemp is most likely going to have 0% THC to the legal amount of 0.3% THC in the CBD extract itself. Even though a small amount of THC may be in CBD oil it does not qualify as a psychoactive drug and cannot make you high or euphoric, especially from using just bath products! Hush bath only provides the legal amount of CBD in our bath bomb products with 0.3% of THC, because we use full spectrum CBD extract.

What is full spectrum CBD?

Full spectrum CBD is the more intense and fruitful version of CBD oil. CBD oil that is made full spectrum has cannabidiol (CBD), cannabigerol (CBG) in less than 3% amount, cannabichromene (CBC) also found in very tiny quantities in CBD oil, and THC in a small quantity. THC is legal in CBD oil under 0.3%. Hush bath will never use above the legalized amount of THC making all of our bath bombs safe and under legal restrictions.

Why full spectrum CBD?

Full spectrum CBD is the stronger side of CBD, it has more cannabinoids which still don't cause a high or euphoria, but can relax the body easier and faster. The cannabinoids have a power to relax your body and nothing more. The low amount of THC in the CBD oil will not make you have a sense of being high or any euphoric effects. Especially soaking in a CBD bath bomb will not cause euphoria because the CBD is not being ingested.

What can CBD help? 

CBD is being studied by many doctors world wide now that recreational marijuana is being legalized in many places. Doctor's are studying the pros of CBD for sleep, anxiety, and a natural pain relief whether it's consumed, soaked in, or put on the body. CBD oil in many products, such as bath bombs, generally can improve muscle and body pains, anxiety, and relax the muscles in the body at night before bed. 

Is CBD for everyone?

It can be! CBD is not a psychoactive drug so many people have turned to it for a natural pain relief. Many women find it helpful with cramps or irritability. Many men find it helpful for muscle aches or bad joints. Many people find it easier to sleep after a CBD bath or after taking a CBD gummy. Just be careful and test your body a little at a time to make sure you enjoy the effects of CBD on your body. The use of CBD is at your own risk.

 Where did CBD come from? CBD was discovered in 1940 and was synthesised in 1963. California passed a vote to legalize medical marijuana in 1996 and it's grown ever since!

How are marijuana and CBD different?

Marijuana is also known as the psychoactive drug THC. THC is a psychoactive drug that, when consumed, can cause a euphoric high, drowsiness, and induce sleep. CBD is derived from hemp and is not a psychoactive drug so when consumed or soaked in, your body will feel relaxed and maybe less in pain but will not make you drowsy or induce sleep. CBD only relaxes the body, not the mind. 

Cautions of CBD!!

CBD can interact with blood thinners when ingested and can cause some side effects such as nausea, dry mouth, and fatigue if your body isn't correct to consume CBD oil. Ask a doctor before orally consuming CBD or using CBD bath bombs or soaks just to be sure.
