What is CBD?

CBD is an abbreviation of ‘Cannabidiol’, a chemical compound extracted from the cannabis plant. Because CBD is a natural Cannabinoid it is believed to have potential for wide-ranging wellbeing benefits and creating homeostasis within the body.

CBD is one of the two most abundant compounds of the cannabis plant, the other is THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) which has psychoactive properties. Hemp refers to cannabis plants which can be grown legally as they contain less than 0.2% THC. Marijuana contains more THC and is therefore illegal due to its psychoactive effect on our neuro system.

What are the forms of CBD?

Full Spectrum

Contains all of the Compounds from the plant after extraction. This is the form that we use in our Sativa Gold products.

Broad Spectrum or Distillate

A half way between Full Spectrum and Isolate and contains a select few of the Cannabinoids.

Isolate

This is where through further processing of the Hemp plant only the individual phytocannabinoid compound chosen to isolate remains.
