What is CBD is Made From?

Leaf Organics CBD Stockport

CBD or to give it its full name Cannabidiol is a compound found in the cannabis plant. It doesn’t create a “high” or dependence and its use is perfectly legal. It’s believed by many organisations, including the WHO, that CBD had many benefits in skincare, relief of pain and general wellbeing.

Cannabidiol or as we know it CBD is made from industrial hemp which is different to marijuana. 

To be classed as industrial hemp the THC – Tetrahydrocannabinol content (the bit that gets you high) must not be above 0.3%. In the U.K. it’s even lower 0.2%. 

The hemp plants are then passed through a co2 extraction to collect all the beneficial Cannabinoids while taking out the THC. This leaves behind a beautiful golden oil we call CBD. 

For CBD to be legal to sell in the U.K. the THC in the final product must not be above  1mg per container.  This is why Leaf Organics have all their products independently tested. The lab reports are on the website for you to see.
