WHAT IS CANNABIS?
Cannabis is a plant family that includes many species. Most commonly; Hemp and Marijuana. Although the two species stem from the same plant family, they have distinctly different uses and benefits.
WHATS THE DIFFERENCE?
HEMP is a nutrient-packed plant that grows in natural environments. It is rich in amino acids, magnesium, omega-3 fatty acids, and one of the strongest plant fibers available to us. Hemp extracts are used in various treatments and therapies that focus on relaxing the body and nervous system, soothing skin irritations and improving overall health. It is a legal plant to grow, process and utilize, containing less than 0.3% THC, with no psychoactive side effects & higher levels of natural CBD.
MARIJUANA is plant grown in a controlled environment, closely monitored to product high concentrations of THC that can be used both medically and recreationally, resulting with varying degrees of psychoactive effects. The plant carries less natural CBD than the latter.
WHAT IS CBD?
CBD, (short for cannabidiol) is a naturally occurring phytochemical, found in cannabis plants species but Hemp is known to have a much higher percentage of CBD. This compound has an extensive list of incredible health and therapeutic benefits, without the psychoactive effects that work directly with our innate endocannabinoid system. CBD can actually work to minimize any THC induced effects on the body!
WE USE HEMP-DERIVED CBD which means you get all of the incredible benefits of the cannabis plant, minus the psychoactive effects! Just pure bliss and healing
