What is Cannabidiol or CBD?

CBD, or Cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid made by the cannabis sativa plant. Cannabinoids are chemical compounds found naturally in cannabis. There are over 85 known cannabinoids found in the plant, but most of them are not well understood due to the prohibition on research for the last 50 years. Cannabidiol was almost completely bred out of existence during prohibition due to selective breeding of high THC strains at the expense of everything else. Luckily, researchers were able to identify CBD’s therapeutic potential and breeders were able to re-establish high CBD strains over the last several years.


While all of the benefits are not yet fully understood, research has ramped up in the last several years. Researchers in the US and Isreal have published numerous studies about the numerous benefits of CBD. Many of which can be found on the web at National Institutes of Health (NIH.gov) and JamboSuperfoods.com/CBD. While protocols are still being developed (i.e. take 100mg/day for 10 days to treat a specific condition), research is showing CBD to be effective in treating systemic diseases such as multiple sclerosis, chronic pain, schizophrenia, PTSD, depression, antibiotic-resistant infections, epilepsy and neurological disorders. It can provide relief from inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis, seizures, spasms and other conditions with- out the anxiety or lethargy some people experience with higher THC strains.


Most strains of cannabis sativa make CBD, but they do so in small quantities. CBD is measured by the milli- gram (mg), and only certain breeds of the plant have high enough concentrations to extract it into a useable and measurable form. We source all of our CBD from agricultural hemp strains high in CBD that are grown in the European Union. IS IT LEGAL? Our CBD from hemp contains less than 1% THC by volume and is legal to purchase and own throughout the United States.
