CBD Hemp Oil is an oil extracted from the species of Cannabis plants known as C. Sativa subsp. indica which is commonly referred to as Hemp. It’s important to understand that while Marijuana is derived from an identical Cannabis species known as C. Sativa subsp. sativa, there is a major difference: Our unique Hemp strain of indica is grown specifically for the therapeutic health benefits without the intoxicant element. That’s because our plants contain extremely low levels of the psychoactive chemical THC. Instead, our unique Hemp strains are cultivated to provide high concentrations of CBD.
CBD is short for Cannabidiol and it is one of 85 compounds found in Hemp that belong to a class of molecules called Cannabinoids. It’s a non-psychoactive compound–which means that it doesn’t give you a high–and it has significant medical and health benefits. The health benefits provided by CBD from both the indica and sativa species are identical.
