What is CBD?
CBD is an acronym for Cannabidiol (Can-a-bid-i-ol), a prominent naturally occurring class of molecules called cannabinoids found in the plant genus Cannabis Sativa L. CBD comprises up to 40% of the plant and is one of over 60 plus compounds found in cannabis. Of these compounds, CBD and THC are usually present in the highest concentrations, and are therefore the most recognized and studied. CBD is a non- psychoactive component of the plant that possesses a wide range of benefits and does not cause a high, unlike THC. Our bodies are made up of an endocannabinoid system and use cannabinoids to maintain healthy cells and according to researchers, CBD may be the single most important cannabinoid ever discovered.
Is Hemp CBD Legal?
There is no need for a Prescription or Medical card to purchase hemp CBD. It is a natural constituent of the high CBD Hemp strains of the plant containing very low levels of THC. Having only trace amounts of THC, our hemp CBD oil is non-psychoactive and federally legal.
How is hemp different than the other Cannabis plants?
While both hemp and the recreational cousin plant come from the Cannabis sativa L plant, they serve different purposes. High CBD hemp is cultivated for its fiber and has an extremely high content of CBD and almost untraceable amounts of THC. Hemp has been grown for thousands of years worldwide for many medicinal and industrial purposes making necessary items like clothing, sails, rope, paper, and thousands of other products. On the other it's recreational cousin contains very low traces of CBD and high amounts of THC, which carries the psychoactive part of the flowers and trichomes that people often associate with feeling “high”. Again, hemp CBD has an almost untraceable amount of THC and does not make you feel “high”.
Will I pass a drug screen or test using hemp CBD products?
