What is CBD?
Also known as cannabidiol, this phytocannabinoid can be found in hemp flower calyxes. It is not a drug or psychoactive. Ongoing clinical research into its usefulness for anxiety, cognition, movement disorders, pain, and epilepsy are ongoing, but there have been no definitive conclusions as it its effectiveness, as of yet. In 2018, the FDA approved Epidiolex, a CBD-based drug for epilepsy.
What is hemp?
This is a form of cannabis, traditionally grown for its seeds and fiber. Hemp seeds are incredibly nutritious, containing all essential amino acids and vital EFAs (essential fatty acids). These can be used as animal feed or even for human consumption.
The plant’s fiber can also be used to make paper, textiles, jewelry canvas, rope, insulation, and building materials like “hempcrete”, plaster, and even beams. Plastic and biofuel can also be made from hemp. Some say it’s an often overlooked (key) component of a sustainable green future.
Is CBD and hemp legal?
Yes; the 2018 Farm Bill makes CBD and hemp products legal. The level of THC must be only a trace, below .3%, and every product must be tested by a DEA-approved lab and have a Certificate of Authenticity stating that the products are within legal limits before being available for sale.
Is all cannabis legal, then?
No. Marijuana, and THC, are not legal under Federal Law. That is not what we sell. Those are other kinds of cannabis, besides the legal hemp and CBD. Chillaxd does NOT condone illegal drug use. We suggest staying away from all that, as it’s loaded with Eagle20, solvents, pesticides, and other fungicides, and cannot possible be good for your health!
What’s CBD and hemp flower good for?
We can’t really say. CBD and hemp have not been evaluated by the FDA, and so it cannot be used to treat or cure any disease. Many people like it, some people swear by it.

How do you use hemp and CBD?
Again, we really can’t say. You can use the CBD and hemp for YOUR OWN PERSONAL biohacking research. Start a journal and see if hemp benefits you, then share your anecdotal research results.

Could I get arrested smoking CBD buds?
Conceivably. You’d have to prove it’s not marijuana. A better choice is, if you’re planning to consume CBD, don’t do it in public where it can be mistaken for drug cannabis.

Some are better than others: Some are greenhouse grown, others are indoor. Still others are outdoor-grown. You basically get what you pay for. Rarer varieties will, of course, cost more. But don’t be fooled: If we carry a strain, it’s good. Just because it’s greenhouse-grown or outdoor does NOT mean it’s poor quality!
Will I pass a drug test if I consume CBD or hemp flower?
