Is this the first time you're hearing about Cannabidiol? Maybe you're a CBD veteran already! We're starting from scratch here to try to best inform you of what can sometimes even be a taboo subject...
What is CBD?
CBD stands for Cannabidiol and is one of over 140 chemical compounds known as cannabinoids found in the cannabis or marijuana plant. CBD is one of the major naturally occurring cannabinoids found in the leaves, stems and flowers of the cannabis sativa, legal industrial hemp plant.
The human body actually produces very small amounts of endocannabinoids, they are almost nature identical to hemp plant cannabinoids.
Many of the health benefits associated with cannabis are due to CBD. It can calm your nerves, reduces aches and discomforts, help to fall asleep and stay asleep without hangovers.
In other words, CBD is a naturally occurring component of the hemp plant with great restorative health properties that can be very helpful in creating balance in your wellness.
CBD will not get you high
CBD is not psychoactive, unlike the cannabinoid THC. The CBD used in foods, and health and beauty products is from industrial hemp. Industrial hemp, by law, has only trace amounts of THC (<0.2% in the EU) which will not get you high.
You can always access our ebb + flow lab reports that demonstrate purity of your ebb + flow CBD Oil proving that our products contain 0% THC.
