CBD is the non-psychoactive cannabinoid in cannabis. That being said, just because it doesn’t make its users high does not mean that it is free of side effects. CBD has been shown to be effective as an anti-inflammatory, in dealing with nausea, and for helping to cope with anxiety.[1][2][3] For new mothers, this may seem like a natural way of dealing with postpartum depression and many of the physical discomforts following childbirth. But is it safe for a breastfeeding mother to take CBD?   Breastfeeding and The Child’s Health During pregnancy, the embryo gets everything it needs from the ..read more

CBD Health and Wellness
by Robert Hammell
1w ago
As more cannabis research continues to develop, our understanding of various cannabinoid compounds grows as well. Two of the most common, CBD and CBDA, while closely related, have slight differences that make them distinguishable from each other. CBDA is actually how CBD usually exists in nature, and after it’s heated (and reaches 110 degrees Celsius for decarboxylation), it becomes CBD.[1] But what difference does that subtle application of heat bring to the two cannabinoids? And how does the body respond to the differences between these two compounds?   CBD VS CBDA – Different Physical ..read more

CBDA is CBD before heat is applied. In other and longer words, CBDA (Cannabidiolic acid) is the acidic precursor of CBD in the cannabis and hemp plants – and this makes it the form of CBD that exists predominantly in the natural world.[1]. What it means is that the plants actually produce CBDA, and when heat is applied it can be turned into CBD (a process called decarboxylation). As cannabis legalization spreads, more data is being gathered about the benefits of various cannabinoids thanks to increased research that was previously impossible to conduct. CBD has been linked to a variety of phys ..read more

In the last two years, the cannabis industry has raked in over $2 billion in revenues from delta-8 sales, as Forbes reports.
