Cannabidiol, aka CBD, is one of the active compounds produced in the resinous flower clusters of the cannabis plant.
It can be found in both hemp and marijuana strains. Over-the-counter CBD products are produced using hemp rather than marijuana, as hemp, by law, must contain less than 0.3% THC.
Unlike THC, the most common cannabinoid found in marijuana, CBD does not cause a high. However, as with THC, CBD offers numerous health benefits.
The most common reasons people give for using CBD are to reduce stress and relieve pain. CBD is also used to treat patients that suffer from seizure disorders and an array of other conditions.
CBD isolate, the product we’re reviewing here is a purified form of CBD.
All plant matter, waxes, chlorophyll, and other plant matter contained in hemp extract are removed via a series of filtration and distillation processes, leaving 99.9% pure CBD powder.
