ANSWERS TO YOUR MOST PRESSING QUESTIONS
What is CBD?
Hemp Extract or CBD is cannabidiol, which is one of the several cannabinoids, or chemical compounds found in cannabis and hemp plants. The most famous cannabinoid is tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, which is the main psychoactive component in marijuana. Cannabinoids from the hemp plant are non-psychoactive, meaning CBD works on the body without causing the same type of intoxication as THC.

What are the effects of CBD?
CBD is commonly used to relieve symptoms of anxiety, including insomnia. Some studies have shown that CBD has anti-inflammatory properties and relief from chronic pain, like arthritis. This has not been proven by the FDA or WHO and more research and testing is necessary. The FDA has recently approved a CBD-based drug for treating epileptic seizures.

Is CBD legal?
Will CBD-infused Backyard drinks make me feel high?
High? No. Happy? We freakin’ think so.
Backyard CBD beverages are made with cannabidiol which is a non-psychoactive compound from the hemp plant containing less than .3% thc, the psychoactive component in the cannabis plant.
What are the benefits that come from CBD?
CBD is still being studied due to heavy government regulations that were just lifted in 2018 (thanks to the Farm Bill), so there are no actual claims that can be made from the Food and Drug Administration. However, CBD has been said to reduce anxiety, mood-related symptoms, pain, and insomnia. We too won’t make actual claims, but we believe enough in the natural effects of the plant to make a beverage out of it. :)
How much CBD is in each product?
15 mg of full-spectrum cbd is in each serving.
