Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is a natural cannabidiol compound of the Cannabis plant, derived from an organic substance which Cannabis secretes naturally.
Cannabis, along with hemp, is related to marijuana. Cannabis is the genus from which hemp and all forms of marijuana develop. There are more than 60 cannabidiol compounds in Cannabis, and until recently, the most studied was THC (delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol) found abundantly in marijuana and responsible for its psychoactive effect.
CBD is the second most abundant cannabidiol in Cannabis plants and has no psychoactive effects, which contributed to its legalization. CDB’s noted beneficial impact on health has resulted in significant scientific study and recent media coverage.
We derive our CBD products from hemp, not marijuana, and can also be referred to as CBD-rich hemp oil, hemp extracts, cannabis oil rich in CBD or “hemp extracts,” since typically they contain ingredients in addition to CBD.
CBD oil is not the same as hemp seed oil and organic hemp oil. These products are derived from hemp seeds, which do not contain CBD.
All our hemp crops are grown legally in the United States and subject to rigorous quality-control standards for purity and cannabidiol content.
