    Could cannabis help former NHL players manage concussion symptoms?

    The University of Miami Miller School of Medicine is currently conducting a 5 year study to examine the effects of CBD for the treatment of traumatic brain injuries and concussions. By combining CBD with an NMDA antagonist (an anesthetic used in animals and humans), the researchers believe the combination can reduce post-injury brain cell inflammation, headache, pain and other symptoms associated with concussion. The findings of a pre-clinical pilot study were recently released, and they show that the combination therapy improved the cognitive functions of animals, compared with those treated with a single vehicle. In addition, there were no adverse effects from either the combination...

Traditionally, full spectrum has included THC, but as extraction technologies have improved and industrial hemp was legalized, more products have been introduced without the THC and thus the "Broad Spectrum" label.

    Is CBD legal?

    Before getting into this business we looked into the legal status of CBD and found that there is a lot of confusion around this question. This is what we've learned... Yes! The 2018 Farm Bill set a statute that legalized the hemp plant (Cannabis sativa) as long as it contained no more than 0.3% of THC. Now, all parts of the hemp plant are federally legal to grow and utilize for commerce.  At the state level, federal law supersedes state law per the constitution. From a regulations perspective, these products are regulated as supplements .

    Will I fail a drug test if I use your products?

    No! We remove all traces of THC so you can use our products worry-free!Generally speaking, if you are being subjected to a drug test, the testing party is screening for tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), not CBD. Most CBD products on the market today must have less than 0.3% THC to be legal.

While there are many other substances...
