What is CBD?

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of the naturally-occurring compounds found in the hemp plant, a ‘cousin’ of the cannabis (‘marijuana’) plant. Scientific studies have demonstrated that CBD can provide numerous health and wellness benefits, working with the body’s own endocannabinoid system, which regulates your anti-inflammatory response, immune system, appetite, mood, anxiety, sleep, and more.


Is CBD legal?

Yes, CBD – unlike THC, the psychoactive component found in the cannabis plant - is legal in all 50 states.


How does CBD work?

CBD is the active chemical compound found in cannabis that works together with your body’s own endocannabinoid system to enhance the wonderful benefits that your system already provides, from a more regulated appetite and improved digestion, to an easier time falling and staying asleep, and numerous other positive effects.


Will it get me high?

No. Hemp is a ‘cousin’ of the cannabis (‘marijuana’) plant. CBD is not tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) - the psychoactive compound found in cannabis responsible for the intoxicating or euphoric effects
