What is CBD?
If you're not familiar with Cannabidiol (CBD), or hemp extract you're probably asking yourself the following questions about Kick Back Cold Brew: "Will it get me high?" "Is this legal?" "Why would I want to mix caffeine with hemp oil?" I'm going to answer these questions in the following paragraphs.
Will I get high from drinking Kick Back Cold Brew?
The short answer is no. You will not get high from drinking Kick Back Cold Brew. However, you will feel relaxed.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of at least 113 active cannabinoids identified in cannabis plant. It accounts for up to 40% of the plant’s extract.
CBD does not have any intoxicating effects such as those caused by THC in marijuana, but may have effects on anxiety and anti-psychotic effect.
CBD has been used to treat anxiety disorders, cancer proliferation, inflammation, chronic pain, arthritis, bone fractures, alzheimer’s, PTSD, infant seizures, parkinson’s, and the list goes on.
Kick Back has caffeine, how does this work in conjunction with CBD?
Caffeine is a stimulant that is used to keep people alert. When you mix CBD with caffeine it creates a calming and alert effect at the same time. I like to compare the feeling to having a full night of rest, waking up in the morning, and feeling stress free.
CBD removes the jitters that people who are sensitive to caffeine may feel when they drink coffee.
Is this legal?
Yes it is legal as long as it follows the regulations in the 2014 Farm Bill.
Some key points are:
- It has to come from the mature stalk of the hemp plant.
- It has to contain less than 0.3% THC.
- It has to be registered with the state department of agriculture.
