It seems everywhere you go, everyone is talking about CBD oil and what it can do for you. But what is it, why should you buy it, and where to buy CBD oil in NYC.
CBD is short for Cannabidiol, an extract of the hemp plant. Even though it is sourced from the same plant as marijuana (a plant known as cannabis sativa), CBD does not get you “high.” People are using CBD oil for a wide range of potential health and wellness benefits because of how naturally CBD works with the body’s internal ECS, or Endocannabinoid System.
The ECS helps maintain a state of equilibrium or internal balance in the body, through cannabinoid-like substances that are created in the body. The ECS helps maintain temperature, mood, stress, pain/pleasure responses, reproductive systems, and more. When the ECS isn’t functioning properly, CBD can help restore balance to the body. The cannabinoids in CBD closely mimic the endocannabinoids that are naturally produced by the body, resulting in a smooth and natural experience.
People take CBD for many reasons, including for:
In December of 2018, the passing of the U.S. Farm Bill legalized CBD at a national level. Subsequently, a few states have passed their own additional regulation. Some states have specific guidelines or require sellers or growers to obtain permits or pay additional fees to produce or sell CBD within the state. Additionally, some municipalities have passed additional laws and ordinances regarding CBD. For the most current updates, be sure to check local laws in your area of New York.
CBD is legal in New York City, with one exception. Acting in an abundance of caution, NYC has passed regulations that prevent establishments within the city from selling food or beverages that have CBD added to them. Establishments in NYC that sell CBD-infused alcohol, food, treats, baked goods, etc., may be subjected to fines and goods may be confiscated. In short, if you live in NYC (or are visiting), you are allowed to consume CBD-infused food and beverage, but city businesses are not allowed to sell it. The easy answer here is: make your own! You can easily blend CBD oil into your favorite smoothie or cocktail, or infuse it into salad dressings and flavorful dishes. Here’s a short article to help you get started.
You might be surprised to learn that CBD oil can be purchased in many locations throughout NYC. CBD oil is sold in some of the places where you’d expect to see it, such as vape shops, smoke shops, liquor stores, and natural groceries. But it’s also available from pharmacies, natural healers, energy workers, spas, boutiques, naturopaths, pet supply stores and groomers, gift shops, markets, and more.
