CBD Products from Whats Hemppening
All cannabinoids, including CBD, produce effects in the body by attaching to certain receptors. The human body produces certain cannabinoids on its own. It also has two receptors for cannabinoids, called the CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors. CB1 receptors are present throughout the body, but many are in the brain.
The CB1 receptors in the brain deal with coordination and movement, pain, emotions, and mood, thinking, appetite, and memories, and other functions. THC attaches to these receptors. CB2 receptors are more common in the immune system. They affect inflammation and pain. Researchers once believed that CBD attached to these CB2 receptors, but it now appears that CBD does not attach directly to either receptor. Instead, it seems to direct the body to use more of its own cannabinoids.

Hemp is a fiber plant with long slender primary fibers on the outer portion of the stalk. Unlike many other plants, Hemp requires limited pesticides because it grows so quickly and attracts few pests. Hemp crops are harvested at different times for different products. Harvesting stalks for high-quality fiber occurs as soon as the crop is in flower, but before the seeds are produced. Harvesting for seed production occurs 4-6 weeks after flowering when the flowers are ripe and full of seeds. At this time, most of the leaf matter has fallen off and the seeds are easier to harvest. The seeds are then harvested with a combine tractor, cleaned and stored in grain bins until it is shipped.
The passing of the 2018 US Farm Bill declared that all parts of the Hemp plant containing no more than 0.3% of THC are now legal, and the Hemp plant has been removed from the Schedule 1 class of controlled substances.
