To the law, there is a drastic difference between the two. It is important to know the legal and medical differences involved with these two sources of CBD, so we’ve put together a guide to help you navigate this tricky distinction.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is an integral part of what makes cannabis the experience we all know and love. While it doesn't have the psychoactive effects triggered by THC, it has myriad other uses that are appreciated by medical marijuana patients and casual cannabis users alike. CBD is known to ease symptoms of both physical and mental illness. It can protect against inflammation and ward off chronic pain, and it’s been known to help alleviate anxiety and depression. CBD may even be a therapeutic application for addiction, as it targets your brain's serotonin 1A receptors.

Located near the heart of American politics, complete with a network of world-renowned hospitals, universities, museums, and more, Maryland would seem to be a perfect place to study the many potential benefits cannabis can offer as well as any public impact. Amid controversy, confusion, and potential discrimination, the program, as administered by the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission, has inched forward more slowly than any other of the 28 states and the District of Columbia had in coming online with their respective medical marijuana programs.

Weed for Warriors: Caring for America’s Veterans

October 24, 2017

The Weed for Warriors Project LogoOrganizations like Weed for Warriors are highlighting the issues plaguing American veterans, including serious unresolved psychological issues. Rather than pumping them full of drugs, marijuana advocates point to a health alternative to potentially dangerous physician-prescribed remedies. It just boggles my mind that those who risked their lives trying to protect this country come home, are neglected, and get turned into drugged-up zombies. The failure at the VA is an example of how government has failed to reintegrate American veterans into a normal way of life, and if this remains the case, veterans will likely have to take matters into their own hands. We here at Leafbuyer want to reveal the issues veterans are facing on a daily basis and commend the actions of those who formed Weed For Warriors.
