# S E L F C A R E S H A R E   G I V E A W A Y S

As cannabis-enthusiasts living in prohibition Missouri, we know how difficult it can be to get your hands on cannabis-based medicine. 

What a lot of people don't know is that you can reap (some of) the medicinal benefits of cannabis in every single state - you just have to know where to look. 

That's why we've teamed up with our favorite CBD-based cannabis brands to bring you nationally legal products that you can incorporate into your daily self-care regimen to boost your endocannabinoid system. 

These are products we use and believe in.

This giveaway has given us the opportunity to share some of these holistic health products with you, and we could not be more thankful for our partners Apothecanna, Evoxe Laboratories, Highland Pantry and EVR CBD for donating these incredible items. We hope you love them as much as we do.

How is this legal? 

Industrial hemp, while still federally illegal to grow in the United States, can legally be imported from other countries. (Why anyone thinks this makes sense, I have no idea.) There are also states such as Colorado and California that allow industrial hemp production. Industrial hemp is not grown for the purpose of getting high – while it can have incredibly trace amounts of THC, it is not enough to get anyone "stoned." To be classified as industrial hemp, it must have less than 0.3% THC.

We see industrial hemp being grown to create products like rope, oil, cloth, paper, fuel, or even bricks, but it can also be grown for medicinal use. When growing for medicinal purposes, the strains chosen are rich in CBD, another cannabinoid found alongside THC in cannabis. 

Under Federal Law, CBD can be extracted from the mature stalks of industrial hemp plants and legally imported into the United States. 

CBD has anti-inflammatory, neuro-protective, and antioxidant properties. Studies have shown that CBD may have therapeutic benefits in the treatment of chronic pain, anxiety, nausea, rheumatoid arthritis, schizophrenia, diabetes, PTSD, alcoholism, strokes, epilepsy, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and more.  

THC is what is analyzed in drug tests; CBD is not. 

This means that if you are an employee, athlete or student concerned about drug testing, you can still reap some of the benefits of the cannabis plant without putting yourself in legal danger. 

Not all CBD products are created equal. 

Unfortunately, not all humans are pure of heart and we do have instances of people creating hemp oil on side of their already in-place industrial hemp farms. I’ve heard reports of people making CBD extractions from hemp that is being grown on polluted land overseas, and their extractions can be full of nasty chemicals that have no business being in our bodies. 

This just means that, like with anything, we need to do our research and make sure that the people making our medicine are making it responsibly. But if you or a loved one are suffering from an illness, it could be well worth your time. 

There are also many companies who are deriving their CBD from hemp inside the United States and selling it nationwide. While this CBD is just as medically beneficial (and possibly even more nutrient dense) as any other CBD, it is not technically a legal product outside of the state it was created in. 

Companies we know to be safe and federally legal include Evoxe Laboratories, Apothecanna, and EVR CBD.
