What is CBD?

Cannabidioil, or CBD, is one of the hundreds of naturally occurring compounds found in the cannabis plant. Cannabinoids interact with your body’s already-existing endocannabinoid system and research has shown that these interactions can be highly beneficial. CBD is non-psychoactive, which means that it will not get you high.

What is Full Spectrum CBD?

We would never compromise the quality of our products by using a synthetic CBD or a CBD isolate. Our products are all created using full spectrum CBD oil, which means that we don’t filter out other naturally occurring cannabinoids or any other part of the plant in order to separate the CBD during the extraction process. By using a whole plant extract, our products benefit from the “entourage effect,” where the sum of the plant’s parts create larger effects than the individual parts alone would. Our full spectrum oil contains other highly beneficial cannabinoids, like CBC, CBG, CBDA, and CBDV.

CBD vs. THC

THC is the compound found in cannabis that *does* produce a high. Currently, THC and other marijuana products are only legal in a handful of states, either for medical or recreational purposes. CBD will not produce a high and is legally sold across the nation.

Why should you take CBD?

There is a multitude of new research being performed on CBD, including a new FDA-approved drug being developed to treat epilepsy. While you should consult with your physician before using any dietary supplements, including CBD products, CBD provides the benefits of cannabis without the high.

Where does Planted Earth Nutritional’s CBD come from?

Our CBD comes from Maine, Carolina and Florida grown hemp and is independently lab-tested for safety and transparency. All of our hemp products are below the .3% federal limit for Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
