CBD (Cannabidiol) is a chemical compound derived from the hemp plant. It is a naturally occurring substance infused within products like oils and edibles to impart a feeling of relaxation and calm. Unlike its cousin Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD is not psychoactive - meaning that when you take CBD, you receive all of the therapeutic benefits of the hemp plant without getting “high”.
Other benefits of using CBD oil include:
Nutritional Value: CBD Oil contains essential fatty acids which need to be consumed, as they are not synthesized naturally in the human body. These are vitally important for regular biological functions
Non-Psychoactive Effects: Users can enjoy the numerous health benefits of CBD without getting ‘high,’ the way one would from cannabis products containing THC
Sustainable Practice: Hemp that is grown to extract CBD Oil is renewable, fast-growing, and almost all parts of the plant can be used - limiting waste output. The hemp plant is a multi-purpose resource, utilised in building production and clothing manufacture as well as for food and nourishment, natural fuel and many more applications
Soil-Friendly: Hemp does not need herbicides to grow, and leaves the soil in which it is cultivated in a more nourished condition than before its planting, encouraging vegetation and crop growth
