Understanding CBD

What is CBD and How Does it Work?

CBD is one of over 100 Cannabinoids present in the cannabis plant family. However, CBD is extracted from the flowers & leaves of the Cannabis Sativa L. (industrial hemp) plant. It is non-psychoactive, and has been demonstrated as being biologically active. Hemp is grown legally all over the UK for its incredibly strong and versatile fibre, delicious and nutritious seed products and CBD content. Modern strains of black market cannabis can be considered quite separate from these plant varieties.

  • Psychological balancing effects
  • Improved sleep patterns

What should I be wary of when selecting a CBD product?

The most important factor is that it’s produced by a trusted source (such as Goodbody Botanicals) who demonstrate they have all the required procedures, tests and documents to prove not only safety but efficacy.
Goodbody Botanicals sister company PhytoVista is the leading testing facility for cannabis derived products in the UK, so you can be assured that you’re in safe hands when choosing a product from the Goodbody Botanicals range.
