CBD is the acronym for cannabidiol, a chemical compound found in the hemp plant. CBD is NOT marijuana. Although they come from the same family of plants, they are different varieties. CBD is not psychoactive or intoxicating, and will not produce a “high” like marijuana does, even at high doses.

What is CBD?
Is CBD safe?
CBD is believed to be safe, but like anything, it may interact with some medications and supplements. It’s always best to check with our pharmacists or your health care provider to ask if CBD products are right for you, especially if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have liver disorders or other health conditions.
CBD or lesser known as Cannabidiol is a naturally occurring substance that is produced by the resinous flower of the marijuana or hemp plant.
As early as 500 B.C., the cannabis plant was used as herbal medicine in Central Asia. Burned cannabis seeds have been found in the graves of shamans, or healers, which provides evidence that the plant's natural healing powers were explored as one of the world's first medicinal substances.
Fast forward to the future and the ancient therapeutic qualities of the cannabis hemp plant are being tested and confirmed by scientists and doctors worldwide.

The World Anti-Doping Agency officially removed cannabidiol from its prohibited substances list on Jan. 1.
“And naturally prescribed drugs OxyContin and these different pain relievers that get people addicted, man. I was prescribed Cerritos . Xanax, Zoloft. They ballooned me up to 400 pounds. I wanted to kill myself, but fortunately this plant saved my life. Why is it not being sold to the world? Big pharma must be involved. We gotta stop this. We gotta come together and save lives.”
“Cannabidiol is no longer prohibited,” WADA said in a statement. “Synthetic cannabidiol is not a cannabimimetic; however, cannabidiol extracted from cannabis plants may also contain varying concentrations of THC, which remains a prohibited substance.”
The two-time World Heavyweight Champion has had numerous departures from the sport. He held the title from 1997 to 1998 and again from 2006 to 2007. He says details for his next bout will be available this week.
But outside the ropes, Briggs has a past of being broken himself. He has struggled with depression since he was a child. He had later battles with prescription medication, which led to thoughts of suicide.
“As far as he has back in his life outside the ring, I will never go at him that way because I’ve had my troubles and it’s not good to get on people and tease him about things in life that they might have went through,” Briggs said.
One of the products prescribed to Briggs led to his suspension from the sport. He was tested and the results showed elevated levels of testosterone. Briggs was devastated when he received the six-month ban from the WBA. He was due to face Fres Oquendo for the WBA’s secondary world title on June 3, before the fight was canceled.
