What is CBD?

CBD is short for Cannabidiol.  It is a compound found in cannabis plants.  From a legal standpoint, there are two varieties of cannabis: hemp and marijuana.  Hemp is legal in the United States since 2018. It is an agricultural product that produces high amounts of CBD and very low amounts of THC. (THC is the chemical in marijuana that causes the user to feel “high”).

Cannabinoids like CBD interact with our Endocannabinoid System (ECS). This is part of the nervous system in humans.  It is still being researched but it may be involved in appetite, mood, pain-sensation, memory and sleep.

 

CBD Facts

 

  • It is legal in the United States
  • It is not intoxicating and does not make you feel “high”.
  • According to the World Health Organization, humans do not seem to build up a tolerance to CBD. That is important because we don’t have to keep taking higher doses to get the same effect.
  • CBD is not addictive.

What Makes Marvelous Calm CBD Different

 

Pure CBD & THC-Free

 

These mints only contain CBD. A lot of “CBD” sold actually contains many other cannabinoids including THC. There are those who think all of those compounds work together better than CBD alone.

These mints are THC-Free. They contain no THC and each batch is tested to make sure of that. I actually bought home drug test kits in normal (50 ng/ml) and highly sensitive (20 ng/ml) to make sure. I have passed every test I’ve taken so far. If you are drug tested for your job, you can rest assured knowing that there is no THC in our mints and CBD will not make you fail a drug test.

 

Low CBD Dosage

 

Many CBD companies believe “more” is better, but I believe starting out with a smaller dosage can be beneficial. For instance, I found that 5mg was just right. Everyone is different, and you can take more or less depending on your goals and how your body and mind feels after taking one CBD mint.

 

CBD Lozenges and Bioavailability

 

The way CBD is taken affects how much ends up being available to the body. This is called bioavailability. Marvelous Calm CBD mint lozenges melt under your tongue. This allows more of the CBD to end up being useful to your system than taking a pill. The less CBD you need to take, the more money you will save.

 

Third Party Testing

 

NEVER BUY CBD THAT ISN’T TESTED BY AN INDEPENDENT LAB. Our manufacturer starts with CBD isolate (pure CBD) that has been tested to make sure it has zero micro contaminates, pesticides, metals and solvents. After processing, they send a sample from each batch to a 3rd party lab to check and make sure it has no THC, that it has the correct amount of CBD and that there are no microbiological impurities. (The report for each bottle we sell can be found on our site.)

Find your Calm

CBD affects everyone differently. But studies have shown that CBD may help increase concentration, maintain healthy stress levels and reduce the desire to “stress eat”. CBD does not make you feel high, just calm.
