What is CBD? Graded Green

So, what is CBD? CBD is abbreviation for Cannabidiol, which is one of 85 unique cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. CBD is a naturally occurring chemical compound derived from the hemp flower. The compound is secreted by the plant and when ingested can act as a profound remedy for a catalogue of ailments. CBD is widely considered an extremely safe and effective remedy. User experiences range from pain relief to relief of anxiety. 

CBD owes its rise in popularity to the many medicinal benefits it proposes, its legality and the quality of products available. Although we specialise in CBD flower, we can also offer a quality range of products for the consumer to safely self treat with CBD. CBD comes in many different forms, from flowers to edibles. 

Some people might be concerned about using CBD products because of its relation to the psychoactive cannabis plant. These concerns can confidently be quashed. Consumers do not experience any psychoactive effects when using CBD due to the absence of THC. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the component that causes users of marijuana to feel high and is the trigger to the psychoactive effects. 0Cannabis has two species. One of which is 'Hemp'. The other is 'Marijuana'. Hemp has high levels of CBD and low levels of THC. Whereas Marijuana has high levels of THC but low levels CBD. Although some CBD products do carry THC but, CBD that contains trace of THC generally below 0.3%. Insignificant in comparison to the average of 20% THC in the Marijuna plant. So NO, you won't get 'high' or 'stoned' from our CBD products and they're completely safe as backed up by research.
