What is CBD?

CBD is one of many compounds, known as cannabinoids, in the cannabis plant. Hemp is a plant within the Cannabis family, Cannabis sativa. Hemp contains most of the CBD that people use medicinally, and trace amounts of THC. THC creates a mind-altering “high” when a person consumes or incinerates it. CBD is different. Unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive. This means that CBD does not change a person’s state of mind when they use it. However, CBD does appear to produce significant changes in the body, and some research suggests it has medical benefits.

Haygood Farms grows industrial hemp plants, federally legalized in 2018, that must contain less than 0.3% THC.

How does CBD Work?

All cannabinoids, including CBD, produce effects in the body by attaching to certain receptors. The human body produces certain cannabinoids on its own. It also has two receptors for cannabinoids, called the CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors. CB1 receptors are present throughout the body, but many are in the brain. The CB1 receptors in the brain deal with coordination and movement, pain, emotions, and mood, thinking, appetite, and memories, and other functions. THC attaches to these receptors. CB2 receptors are more common in the immune system. They affect inflammation and pain.

How is Haygood Hemp different?

All of our hemp, and all the hemp in our products, is grown on our certified organic farm in Sequatchie Valley, Tennessee. Haygood Farms is in full compliance with the Tennessee Department of Agriculture’s industrial hemp program.

Our hemp plants are legally required to contain no more than 0.3% THC. We oversee each part of the production, from growing and cloning our plants, to extracting the oils, and blending our products with the highest quality ingredients available. 

Each product page and label shows CBD amounts, typically measured in milligrams. Read our lab reports for the nitty-gritty details on how our plants measure up. All of Haygood’s hemp undergoes rigorous quality control requirements. Read more about the Haygood Promise.


What does full-spectrum CBD Mean?

Our Haygood Farms products are full-spectrum, or whole plant, which means they provide a full profile of cannabinoids, including trace (<0.3%) amounts of THC, as well as beneficial cannabinoids like CBG, CBC, CBN, and terpenes, or aromatic oils.

What are some benefits of CBD?

Although testing is continuing, CBD offers a possible natural alternative to pain relief and provides anti-inflammatory properties, as well as potential help with quitting smoking, drug withdrawals, epilepsy, other neurological symptoms and disorders, fighting cancer, anxiety disorders, type 1 diabetes, acne, and slowing the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. Our clients share their stories of the relief they’ve found from CBD.

What are the side effects and risks of taking CBD?

Many small-scale studies have looked into the safety of CBD in adults. They concluded that adults tend to tolerate a wide range of doses well. Researchers have found no significant side effects on the central nervous system, the vital signs, or mood, even among people who used high dosages. The most common side effect was tiredness. Also, some people reported diarrhea and changes in appetite or weight. There is still a lack of available long-term safety data. Also, to date, researchers have not performed studies involving children.

How do you use or consume CBD?

CBD-based products come in many forms. Oral delivery methods, such as tinctures, capsules, and oils, can be mixed into different foods or drinks, taken under the tongue, or swallowed as a capsule. Others are thick pastes or salves to be massaged into the skin, where the CBD is absorbed through the skin. Some products are available as sprays or roll-ons to be applied as a muscle pain reliever. Recommended dosages vary between individuals, and depend on factors such as body weight, the concentration of the product, and the health issue.

Haygood Farms CBD products, including oils, capsules, and flower, can be purchased on our online site and with any of our regional wholesalers. Haygood Farms products come from hemp, which means no medical card is necessary, and we can ship nationwide to individuals older than 21.
