5 Things to Know When Trying Hemp CBD for the First Time
By Jaci Schreckengost
Here are some things we think you should know about hemp CBD if you’re trying it for the first time.
CBD is a cannabinoid
CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of the most prominent cannabinoids in the hemp plant. Other cannabinoids include THC and CBG, among others.
CBD works with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) in your body. These cannabinoids work to activate the receptors in your ECS that are typically dormant.

It comes in different forms
You can find CBD in a ton of different formats. You can find CBD in formats like tincture and roll-on, but you can also add it to other products.
One example is CBD drinks, which are becoming increasingly popular. Warren Bobrow even created a cocktail called The Dreamer that uses New Highs CBD.
It’s easy to add into any routine
CBD is fast and easy to use — in fact, it takes less than a minute.
If you’re using tincture orally, you put it under your tongue and hold for 15-30 seconds before swallowing.
If you’re using our roll-on products, you just need to apply the product to your skin and allow it to absorb.
CBD doesn’t get you “high”
THC and CBD are both cannabinoids that come from the hemp plant, however they affect your body differently.
THC is the compound that gives people the feeling of a “high,” however CBD will not give you this same feeling. While there are trace amounts in CBD products, these amounts are small enough that they are not intoxicating and fall well under 0.3% THC, the legal limit of THC that can be in a CBD product that is sold in the U.S.
New Highs CBD is created with customers in mind
