The “E” at the beginning of ECHO refers to one of our principal goals as an organization:
Educate others on the benefits of cannabinoids like cannabidiol (CBD).
As you decide whether CBD is right for you and your family, we understand that you likely have many questions about the cannabinoid and how it interacts with our natural systems to promote well-being and health.
We recognize that there is a lot of confusing information out there about cannabinoids, and our objective is to provide you with a comprehensive, easy-to-understand guide on understanding CBD, its benefits, and the types of products that are available.
Here we offer an overview of how to take advantage of all the educational features on ECHO.
Education Overview Articles
We regularly publish educational articles designed to increase your understanding of CBD and CBD products. By going to our Education Page and navigating to our ”Education Overview” Section, you’ll find articles covering the basics of CBD and how best to incorporate the compound and its products into your health care routine, as well as easy-to-read recaps of the most recent scientific discoveries on CBD.
Scientific Cannabinoid Research
We’ve worked diligently to supply a comprehensive list of research articles and literature reviews on cannabinoids and their therapeutic effects. These articles are pulled directly from the medical community’s peer-reviews journals and are organized by ailment or condition so you can find the ones most applicable to you and your family.
The laws on accessing cannabinoids vary depending on where you and your family live, particularly in the United States. Cannabis is classified as a Schedule I substance by the federal government and therefore prohibited under federal law. However, 29 states have so far passed comprehensive public medical cannabis laws, giving legal access to qualified patients who have obtained a written recommendation by a licensed physician. When derived from imported hemp rather than marijuana, CBD oil is excluded from the Controlled Substances Act and therefore federally legal. Some states, however, have regulated CBD and/or hemp.
