C.B.D. ~ cannabidiol

This is a cannabis product that everyone seems to be buzzing about. You can get it in drinks, gummies, tinctures, oils, almost any way you can think of consuming a product…you can consume CBD.

So, what is CBD, does it get you just a little bit high? Not really. CBD is extracted from the same cannabis plants that THC comes from, but the CBD is separated from the THC during the extraction process. We isolate the natural CBD chemicals from the rest of the plant during this process and distill them in high concentrates. This produces the desired product that doesn’t create the traditional euphoric feels that come from THC. Instead, users report feelings of calm, happiness, and reduced stress.
