What Is CBD…
…And How It Helps You Feel And Look Better
CBD is so new out on the health field that many of you don’t even know what the CBD abbreviation stands for. But it really isn’t new. In fact, it goes back to the 1940’s, when it was first discovered. It was further researched in the 1960’s, and it was found to have many health benefits.
Supports healthy skin.
Promotes a healthy heart, veins . . . and brain function.
Relieves body aches.
Relieves muscle tension.
Relieves occasional stress, anxiety and low moods by supporting and maintaining healthy nerve endings.
Improves cell integrity throughout the body, especially in the brain and central nervous system.
Boosts alertness and energy.
All while creating calm and relaxation.
Unfortunately, the government made it illegal to use CBD.
That is until up to December 20th, 2018, when an $867 billion farm bill was made into law. This bill gave additional financial aid (subsidies) for agriculture research, farmers, ranchers, the USDA, and forest personnel. And – it also included making it legal to buy and use hemp in all 50 states. But this does not include marijuana.
Well, one step at a time.
