You hear everyone talking about “CBD” but haven’t really been told exactly what it is, so I am here to help you! CBD originates from the industrial hemp plant. NOW you see hemp and automatically go to marijuana right? However, it is the sister plant. CBD oil is a natural essential oil that is extracted from the flowers and leaves of the cannabis plant It can be used for MANY reasons such as a dietary supplement or for a variety therapeutic purposes. CBD contains multiple active compounds like cannnabinoids and terpenes and research studies has shown that is is well-tolerated and non-toxic to you. CBD is short for cannabidiol and is just ONE of the several different molecules called cannabinoids that are found in the cannabis plant. CBD is NOT an acronym. Cannabidiol has been shortened to CBD because it customary for cannabinoids to have a three letter designation.
The difference between hemp and marijuana is marijuana gives you the “high” effect from the psychoactive compound THC. Hemp is not marijuana. THC is the more famous memeber of the cannabinoids family and is the one that causes a high. Although hemp contains some cannabinoids, all products that JB Naturals offers have NO THC. There are many different types of CBD products and we are going to cover those next week!
