You've probably heard about CBD, the wellness industry's latest obsession. But what it is and what it does remain a mystery to most. Here's our quick rundown on what CBD is and how it can help you.
For starters, the initials CBD are short for cannabidiol, a compound from the hemp plant that has significant medical benefits, but does not make people feel “stoned."
But if it's hemp, is it legal? A very good question, and the answer is yes! The reason is because CBD is extracted from the plant without THC, the other compound found in hemp that is a hallucinogen and classified in the U.S. as a drug.
So what are those medical benefits? Here's a nifty little chart:
How can you imbibe in CBD? Tinctures, gummies, oils, topicals like paste and massage cream, bath bombs, lotions, pills, drinks, food... you name it, someone has put CBD in it! And the list is growing everyday.
Here at Cafe Planted, we serve it up in our delicious vegan CBD lattes, which provides the best of both worlds: alertness from the caffeine without the jitters that usually come with it.
We also have a big selection of gummies, tinctures and oils, along with our very own brand of CBD, obviously also called Planted.
