What is CBD and Why Do I See it Everywhere?

What is CBD and Why Do I See it Everywhere?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid in Cannabis and Hemp. It is the second most prevalent cannabinoid in cannabis (after THC). Contrary to popular opinion, CBD is not legal in all 50 states, even if it is sourced from hemp. This is because all states have their own Controlled Substances Acts (CSA) which generally mirror the federal CSA.

As a cannabinoid (when derived from hemp) that is not classified as a Schedule 1 drug, CBD has begun to receive much more scientific research. Research around epilepsy, pain, and sleep all show potential benefits as a supplement.

These factors allow CBD to be seen all over the place, whether on Amazon, convenience stores, or even right in Fine Fettle!

How does Fine Fettle sell CBD?

We sell two types of CBD in our dispensaries two different ways.

1. CBD within the cannabis plant as grown by the cultivators 

During the cultivation process, different phenotypes and genetics have different ratios of cannabinoids. This is why we see varying levels of THC, CBD, CBN, and other minor cannabinoids. Within the cannabis plant, CBD occurs naturally and can be either a focus or derivative of what is cultivated by Advanced Grow Labs, CTPharma, Curaleaf, and Theraplant. 

CBD is available in flower, extracts, vapes, concentrates, edibles, and other products, as grown by cultivators.

2. Hemp-derived CBD

Fine Fettle supports a number of CBD manufacturers who create excellent and enjoyable products from Hemp-derived CBD. Within our facility, we offer 25mg CBD gummies from New England Hemp Farm, CBD Seltzers (variety of flavors containing 26mg CBD, ZERO THC) from Harbor Hemp, amazing Chocolates from Toast, and hemp flower and pre-rolls from Sweet Heal.

How can CBD work for me?

We won’t make claims beyond the research, but the research is there! Whether anti-inflammatory for pain, aiding sleep, or help for childhood seizures, come in and talk to our pharmacists to assess whether adding CBD into your cannabis regimen may help you reach Good Health and Good Condition.
