What is CBD?

What it is and how it works

CBD is short for cannabidiol. It is a critical phytocannabinoid found in hemp and known for supporting body and mind in many ways.

CBD specifically comes from the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant. (Not to be confused with oil that comes from hemp seeds, which contain no cannabinoids.)

Why it works - The human body has a vast network of receptors, the endocannabinoid system, that helps us maintain overall wellness and helps support many of our body’s physical processes. CBD fits into the receptors, helping the body complete its efforts to keep us in good health. Learn more about the endocannabinoids system.
