CBD (Cannabidiol) is a compound existing within the hemp plant that has been used for many years to promote physical and mental wellness in addition to many other benefits. Unlike THC, which is primarily a psychoactive compound also found in the marijuana plant; CBD has no such mind-altering effects and will not produce the euphoric state of marijuana ※high§. CBD is a highly natural, safe option to assist in managing a number of short term ailments and chronic conditions, in addition to simple maintenance of the mind and body. CBD is the ultimate equalizer when it comes to sustainable good health.
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a recently discovered group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body. The endocannabinoid receptors that make up the ECS are located in our Central Nervous System (CNS), Peripheral Nervous System (PNS), and Immune System. Our CNS includes our brain and spinal cord, while the PNS acts as a communication network linking our CNS to the rest of our body. Our brains contain the heaviest concentration of cannabinoid receptors, but there’s no shortage of them in our organs, tissues, glands, and more. The saturation of ECS receptors throughout our body is part of why CBD has so many uses and is so effective.
Cannabinoids are organic molecules naturally produced by hemp and cannabis which activate two of the body’s central nervous system receptors: CB1 and CB2.* CB1 receptors are primarily located in the brain, while CB2 receptors are spread throughout the rest of the body. Because CBD does not activate the brain’s CB1 receptors, it is largely non-psychoactive. Each of the 100+ known cannabinoids have unique receptor interactions, producing individual results. Research has also shown that cannabinoids’ benefits multiply when used together, producing what is called the “entourage effect.” *More information on receptor activation and their effects on the body should be researched through reliable sources.

There are many benefits associated with the use of CBD. When speaking on the topic of mental health, perhaps we have overlooked the most obvious answer. A traditional anti-depressant works as a temporary bandage to our brain receptors, whereas CBD is an active regulator of the brain, binding to the CB1 and CB2 receptors present within this particular area of our endocannabinoid system. Depression, anxiety and the like may steadily improve by the simple addition of CBD to the body. This is an evolutionary supplement that can also mitigate side effects. CBD can also be beneficial for pain management, whether you have simple back pain or advanced stages of a disease such as neuralgia or fibromyalgia, migraines and the like. CBD should be seen as a regulator to the body and it＊s many functioning systems
When speaking on behalf of the cannabis plant, we must learn to differentiate between hemp and marijuana. While both belonging to the cannabis plant, the key difference is the amount of THC present.
Hemp has a various amount of cannabinoids, one of which being CBD. Hemp does contain THC, but at very minimal amounts that do not produce a psychoactive “high” when being used.
Marijuana on the other hand contains a larger quantity of THC, thereby producing this aforementioned psychoactive “high”.
When we break down the cannabis plant, we are left with a multitude of various properties, all of which can serve the human body and mind. The beauty of hemp and CBD products in general is the lack of an intoxicating effect produced by the product.
Despite common belief and perhaps an outdated stigma attached to hemp products, CBD is absolutely legal if containing 0.3% THC or less.
Due to the passing of the 2014 Farm Bill, CBD was made legal in all 50 states. On December 20, 2018, The Hemp Farming Act of 2018, S. 2667 (2018 Hemp Bill) became law and formally and definitively removed hemp from the list of controlled substances.
Quite often, employers require a mandatory drug test as part of the hiring process. There is some confusion as to whether or not using hemp products could result in a failed drug test.
We cannot say that failing a drug test while using CBD is completely impossible, however it is highly unlikely. The reason for this is the low concentration of THC (0.3%) present in hemp products. It is always wise to communicate with a prospective employer about CBD use.
When speaking on CBD in terms of quantity, one must remember that there is no set amount of CBD that may or may not prove beneficial to you. Every individual has different needs and may desire more or less CBD.
The honest recommendation here at Zenergy Hemp is to take the preferred dosage on the product label. A general consensus is that between 10-20 mg per day is a suitable starting dosage and can provide relief for many ailments.
We also recommend consulting your physician before using CBD.
The short answer is: No, you cannot take too much CBD. With that being said, it is wise to start with a small quantity and see what suites you the best.
CBD is sometimes sold in concentrates, which contain far more than some of the common capsule quantities. Depending on the ailment of the consumer, a larger quantity of CBD concentrate would obviously provide a more direct and timely relief.
One must consider that CBD is not habit-forming, so there is essentially no risk to taking a large amount.
The general recommendation though is to take the recommended dosage on the product label.
