What is CBD

CBD is a natural constituent of hemp that has been shown to have positive health benefits, without causing psychoactive effects.

 

CBD-rich hemp provides a legal alternative to medical marijuana and allows the consumer to enjoy the benefits of CBD without the risk of getting high.

 

Since CBD has no psychoactive effect, it is an excellent option for people seeking the benefits of cannabis products without breaking federal law or risking impairment.
