What is CBD?
Dr. Jen Palmer, ND

CBD is short for Cannabidiol is a compound found primarily in the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant. It’s one of many powerful cannabinoids found in hemp and is known for supporting the body and mind in various ways.*

The CBD found in Charlotte’s Web does NOT come from marijuana, it comes from hemp plants. Hemp and marijuana are close relatives, but not the same. By definition, hemp contains no more than .3% THC - the psychoactive compound that is found in higher concentrations in marijuana. Hemp naturally has higher levels of CBD, a non-psychoactive compound known for helping human bodies maintain health and overall wellness.* Watch the video on the difference between hemp vs marijuana to learn more.
