What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a largely legal hemp oil made from high-CBD and low-THC hemp plants. Due to the low traces of THC, CBD oil products are non-psychoactive, allowing users to gain the health benefits of cannabis without the associated high.
CBD is one of many extractable phytocannabinoids that can be derived from the hemp plant. Other phytocannabinoids include CBC, CBG, AND CBN oil which all come with their own unique set of medical and health benefits.
How is hemp different than marijuana?
CBD extracted from the hemp plant, which is the same plant that is used in the production of marijuana – cannabis sativa. The main difference between hemp and marijuana is the purpose for which they are grown. The hemp that is used in CBD is intentionally grown to have high levels of CBD and low levels of THC whereas marijuana is grown to have high levels of THC – the chemical that gives users a high feeling.
Hemp is grown all over the world, and its health benefits have been documented for centuries. The plant is grown easily in most climates meaning that the oil can be produced in mass quantities with little worry of ever running out of the product, unlike some of the ingredients that are used in the production of prescription drugs. Alternative treatments are being increasingly considered by people with health problems as the cost of prescription drugs continues to rise and their benefits are disproven. A natural choice could be the right choice for you.
What are the health benefits of CBD?
CBD has been used successfully to treat eating disorders, chronic pain, inflammation, multiple sclerosis, neurological disorders, epilepsy, migraines, glaucoma, osteoporosis, heart disease, stroke, hypertension, many types of cancer, insomnia, post-traumatic stress disorder, clinical depression, and chronic and acute anxiety. For those that are not diagnosed with a disease or illness, the CBD can still be used as a mild relaxant due to its calming and soothing quality.
How do your CBD products differ than others?
Our CBD products are carefully extracted from hemp grown in the United States by farmers that care about where and how their plants are cultivated and treated from harvest to sale. Using sustainable farming technique and the whole hemp plant, the farmers are able to guarantee the least wasteful and most environmentally friendly process for cultivating hemp. Not only that, the grow techniques including prevention of pests are all natural. On their farms, organic practices like using insects to pollinate and mushrooms to fertilize keep the plants fresh and free of pesticides. They also use full-tilling to keep soil at optimal levels and prevent erosion of the land.
