What is CBD?
CBD is the acronym for Cannabidiol. Cannabidiol (CBD) is an organic, safe, non-intoxicating, and naturally occurring chemical compound found in the flowers, leaves and stems of the hemp plant. (Hemp oil, which contains NO CBD, is made from the seeds of the hemp plant.)

The key words in that statement are ‘pure CBD’.
