CBD is derived from the Hemp Plant
The Hemp plant is a relative to the Marijuana plant BUT they are very different.
The level of THC present in the plant is the main difference between Hemp and Marijuana. (THC is the psychoactive part which creates a high for the user)
Hemp plants, by legal classification, contain less than 0.3% of THC.
Marijuana plants contain much high levels of THC generally between 3% and 15%.

How do you create CBD?
After a hemp plant has been harvested, it goes through a unique extraction method which will determine if the CBD is full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, or CBD isolate. Each term mentioned previously refers to the degree the product was processed.
During the extraction process, other compounds found within the plant are also extracted, including terpenes, flavonoids, and other cannabinoids.
