When you can buy hemp products just about everywhere, it’s easy to forget the controversial past it’s had. If it feels like Hemp & CBD suddenly sprang into existence with the 2018 Farm Bill, you have a lot to catch up on. This week we’re covering the vast history of hemp and CBD.
Our bodies and minds are connected in ways we’re only just now beginning to understand. Eastern medicine has long accepted that your physical and emotional states can influence each other, but Western medicine is still playing catch-up. However, with the discovery of the endocannabinoid system (ECS), we’re quickly gaining ground.
So when you see CBD products with claims such as Improves Mind and Body Wellness or Elevates Mood are they for real? Let’s find out!
Let’s face it, we’re all pretty stressed out right now. The situation changes every day and we’re dealing with a ton of uncertainty. It’s enough to make even the most unperturbed leaders sweat. There’s no right or wrong way to handle this situation because there’s very little precedent for it.
One thing we CAN control, however, is how we respond. So whether you’re practicing social distancing or on an official quarantine order, use the following information to boost your mental health and overcome stress with CBD.

There’s a lot to be learned from the Marihuana Tax Act, especially if we don’t want to repeat the egregious mistakes of the past. So, let’s dive in and find out why this piece of history is just as important today as it was in 1937.

Benzos, or benzodiazepines, are a group of prescription sedatives meant to help those with anxiety, insomnia, and sometimes seizure disorders. They’re one of the most widely prescribed drugs and are designed for short-term use.
