About CBD

Cannabidiol, or CBD as it is commonly known, is one of more than 100 cannabinoids that is naturally produced in cannabis plants.  Other cannabinoids include tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), cannabinol (CBN), cannabigerol (CBG), and cannabichromene (CBC). CBD does not have any of the psychoactive effects (i.e. “the high”) that is associated with the use of THC. Our products contain less than 0.3% THC. Learn more about CBD below.
