CBD is derived from the Hemp / Cannabis Plant and contains non-psychoactive cannabinoids and terpenes. Hemp / Cannabis has been revered as a "wonder herb" for more than 5000 years. Back in the 1940's, CBD was tested and studied extensively and shown to offer significant health benefits for a wide range of health issues including pain, anxiety, depression, poor sleep and epilepsy by working in harmony with our own body's endocannabinoid system.
