CBD Education



Hemp was originally grown in the United States for fiber and fuel. Kentucky was the one of the most prolific producers of American grown hemp in the 19th and 20th century, with thousands of acres of hemp.

After World War I, hemp farming declined, replaced by more profitable crops like tobacco, as well as the increased usage of synthetic fiber.

Then, during the “War on Drugs”, with the passage of the Controlled Substances Act of 1970, federal restrictions were implemented. The Drug Enforcement Administration at this point claimed that marijuana and hemp, both cannabis species, were prohibited. The regulations became too restrictive for small farmers and in fact, it became legal to grow only in Kentucky, and only if it was associated with a research project. Not to be used in commerce.

In the 1990’s the Canadian company Manitoba Harvest campaigned to allow for hemp products, like hemp oil and hemp seeds, to be sold in the United States. They eventually broke down those walls and hemp began to appear on the retail shelves.

Eventually, with the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill we can now once again grow and use American grown hemp!


CBD stands for Cannabidiol, a phytocannabiniod found abundantly in hemp, which is a type of cannabis. Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of at least 113 active cannabinoids identified in cannabis.

CBD works by interacting with the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is an internal network of receptor sites. These receptor sites, like a lock and a key, interact with cannabinoids.

The endocannabinoid system has been implicated in a number of physiological functions.


Canna Joint Relief was in development for many years before the botanical blend and extraction process were perfected.

The CBD is added to a base of Certified Organic botanicals which undergo a proprietary extraction process, called Extended Extraction. This process helps draw out the chemical constituents of each plant.

COMPREHENSIVE – Expertly crafted blend of botanicals

ORGANIC – 95% certified organic herbs

CLEAN – No sulfates, phthalates, phylates, petroleum or parabens

EXTRA – Extended Extraction for botanical ACTION!


The chemical compound in cannabis that may give you the “high” feeling is called THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). Hemp-based products, the kind of products that are sold in retail stores, (unlike products you find in a dispensary), must contain .3% or less THC.


Hemp is a tall and sturdy plant and has been cultivated for thousands of years for oil, food, fiber and used in various herbal traditions. Human usage can be traced back to 26,900 B.C, where hemp rope was found in Czechoslovakia.

Hemp was commonly used in the production of paper from 200 BCE to the late 1800s.

The Ebers Papyrus (c. 1550 BC) from Egypt mentions the usage of hemp as a topical.

Dà má is the Chinese icon for cannabis, translated it means “big hemp,” depicted as two cannabis plants inside of a house or sheltered area. Hemp was used in China for fiber and was said to be balancing to both yin and yang.
