WHAT IS CBD?
The Truth About CBD
CBD stands for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol, is one of the primary natural cannabinoids found in the industrial hemp plant.
What are Cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are chemical compounds that bind the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) receptors throughout your brain and body. There are over 113 known different cannabinoids found in hemp.
What are Cannabinoid Receptors?
Cannabinoid receptors are embedded in cell membranes throughout your body. Researchers have identified two cannabinoid receptors: CB-1, predominantly present in the nervous system, connective tissues, gonads, glands, and organs. CB-2, predominantly found in the immune system and its associated structures.
How Does CBD Work?
The Endocannabinoid System
CBD primarily interacts with your body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) regulates processes in the body such as appetite, pain, mood, memory, peripheral nervous system, and more. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. In each tissue, the cannabinoid system performs different tasks, but the goal is always the same: homeostasis.
Homeostasis in a general sense refers to stability or balance in a system. It is the body’s attempt to maintain a constant internal environment. Maintaining a stable internal environment requires constant monitoring and adjustments as conditions change. Here’s an example, when we become stressed our mind releases Cortisol. Cortisol can be helpful when we need to react quickly to a dangerous situation–fight or flight.
Is CBD Safe?
CBD is considered “generally well-tolerated with a good safety profile” according to a 2018 World Health Organization report.

CBD versus THC
It’s important to note that while some people confuse CBD with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is also found in the cannabis plant, the two are different. CBD is not intoxicating and does not cause the euphoric side effects commonly associated with THC. That means you can use CBD products without having to worry about THC causing any sort of reaction.
While CBD and THC both bind to the CB-2 receptor, they interact with the CB-1 receptors in different ways. Because of its molecular structure, THC is able to bind directly with CB-1 receptors. When this bond is formed, the reaction creates signals that are sent to the brain, which results in the the intoxicating effects of “getting high.” Research shows that CBD does not bond directly with CB-1 receptors*, and its presence can even negate the bond between THC and the CB-1 receptors, effectively neutralizing the intoxicating effects induced by THC.
Are Hemp and Marijuana the Same?
No, while both plants are in the same Cannabis plant family, hemp is completely different from marijuana in its function, cultivation, and application.
Will CBD Get Me “HIGH”?
No, CBD will not get you high. CBD is a cannabinoid that does NOT have euphoric side effects.

Hemp Regulation In New York
Hemp products have long been a part of New York’s culture. In the 1940s, the federal government produced and promoted industrial hemp with the movie “Hemp For Victory,” During a time of war, when many natural and human resources were strained, hemp’s efficient growth cycle and the wide array of industrial uses for its fibers and resin relieved the high demand for these commodities.
Following the war, the cost of producing hemp in the United States became prohibitory due to reimplementation of taxes and strict regulations. However, Barack Obama signed a pro-hemp Farm Bill in 2014 that allowed for the cultivation of hemp across the nation. Governor Andrew M. Cuomo of New York State has been signing hemp positive legislation in recent years. In 2017 he signed Senate Bill 6787 which acknowledged the potential of industrial hemp, and indicates New York’s efforts in “support of industrial hemp.”
