CBD 101

Here at Ridgway Hemp Co, we want to educate our customers that our CBD (cannabidiol) products are safe and can help so many different issues you may have in your body. 

Although CBD is legal everywhere in the United States, some individuals are not aware of the differences between CBD and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis. The biggest misconception about CBD is that it has the same effect on the body as THC, but in reality, the two compounds are completely different!

The Plant

The cannabis plant is made up of a large number of compounds. CBD and THC are most commonly used in medicine. CBD and THC have a similar chemical structure, but they create a different effect due to how the atoms are rearranged. 

CBD is the compound found in cannabis and does not create a high, while THC is the compound that does. 

When CBD is extracted from a hemp plant, it contains less than 0.3 percent THC, which is why there are no psychoactive effects on the body. For this reason, CBD can be marketed to people looking to experience health benefits, but do not want to feel high. 

The Benefits

Basic benefits of CBD include relief for anxiety, poor sleep, and stress. When CBD is included in topical products, like our Love Balms, it can help with swelling, bruising, and moisturizing the skin!

Our CBD Oil

At Ridgway Hemp Co, we strived to create something unlike anything else. Why just have the benefits of CBD when you can add more? That’s why we created The Big D CBD oil, packed with Vitamin D. 

Did you know around 41 percent of people in the United States are Vitamin D deficient? Vitamin D gives the body benefits like maintaining healthy bones, teeth, and supports the nervous system. Also, when you’re feeling down mentally, it can change your mood. It is a vitamin for just about anyone! 

Our CBD is Kosher Certified, Halal Certified and Allergen Free. Our Vitashine Vitamin D is Non-GMO certified, Vegan Society certified, Kosher certified, Allergen Free sourced and sustainably sourced. Does it get any more natural than that? 

What’s even better? We flavored our CBD with organic blueberry flavor. Yup, you heard that right! This makes our oil more versatile than ever. Throw it in a dessert, a yummy mixed drink, or even give it to your furry friend. CBD with Vitamin D can be for anyone!
