What Is CBD?

CBD is a shorter name for cannabidiol, one of the 100+ cannabinoids found in cannabis. First discovered in 1940, CBD accounts for around 40% of the cannabinoids in hemp and marijuana plants. While hemp and marijuana are closely related, the former is a form of cannabis that contains almost no THC. THC is the cannabinoid associated with the high from marijuana, which remains illegal at the federal level, despite being legalized in more than half of all states. Hemp, on the other hand is legal throughout the country, so there is no legal risk to buying or using hemp-based CBD products.

We make our CBD products from high quality, Colorado grown hemp. We extract the CBD using a special process known as Supercritical CO2. During Supercritical CO2 processing, plant matter from hemp is placed in a high pressure, CO2-rich environment. No heat, solvents or mechanical pressing is used in the extraction process, which we believe makes a higher quality product. The result is the best possible extract without damage to the CBD molecules.
