CBD, short for Cannabidiol, is one of over 100 compounds called cannabinoids that are found in cannabis plants. Unlike the mind-altering compound tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), Cannabidiol is non-psychoactive, meaning it will not get you high. Since Cannabidiol does not cause psychoactive effects, it is an excellent option for people seeking the benefits of cannabis products without the high or breaking federal law. All of Essential CBD products are made with CBD extracted from the industrial hemp plant. This type of hemp has less than 0.3% THC and does not alter the mind like other drugs.
