CBD has grown very popular the past few years, however there is still alot of confusion as to what CBD is and how it works.
CBD is a natural essential oil extracted from the hemp plant. It is one of over a hundred cannabinoids extracted from a strain of industrial-grade hemp which offers a host of benefits.
Of at least 120 identified cannabinoids that exist in the hemp plant, CBD makes up about 40 percent of the extract from the hemp plant.
CBD does not provide the psychoactive properties of THC, another cannabinoid most associated with the feeling of being “high”. That’s because CBD and THC act in different ways on different receptors in the brain and body.
CBD has many options when it comes to taking it. You can get isolate based tinctures, edibles, or vape pens (THC Free) or you can go with full Spectrum products such as flower, full Spectrum edibles, tinctures and more.

Having the complete range of naturally occurring plant compounds and cannabinoids in full-spectrum CBD provides maximum benefit
