It’s almost impossible to stroll through retailers or watch the news without the mention of CBD. Everything from lotion to sports drinks seems to have some hemp or cannabidiol integration, but what really is CBD?

Cannabidiol or CBD is a property of cannabis known for its healing properties. CBD is extracted from the hemp or cannabis plant and is just one of the several chemical compounds in the plant. THC is the intoxicating property from the cannabis plant and is not a component our hemp derived CBD products.
CBD has risen to popularity in both pop culture and alternative medicine circles. It's not unusual to see a coffee shop boasting CBD coffee while a senior citizen uses a CBD cream to treat arthritis. CBD has been said to reduce anxiety, inflammation, sleeplessness and alleviate chronic pain. Athletes have begun using CBD to assist with muscle recovery and pain management, and the product is also said to help regulate the immune system and suppress inflammatory responses, which can both help prevent and treat injuries.
