CBD, or cannabidiol, is a non-intoxicating and non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis plants. The cannabis plants contain over 100 different types of cannabinoids like CBD, such as THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), the psychoactive compound and many more that have yet to be fully discovered and understood.
The cannabis plant family can be separated into two main species; Hemp and Marijuana. Hemp plants normally consist of high levels of CBD and low levels of THC. While marijuana plants are the opposite and consist of low levels of CBD and high levels of THC compounds. ESG products are derived from hemp plants that contain less than 0.2% THC and over 20% CBD. This makes our products comply with legal limits worldwide and also ensures the safety by eliminating any intoxicating effects.
