What is Charlotte’s Web CBD ?
All of our bodies naturally produce cannabinoid compounds that are well-known as endocannabinoids. They are part of a biological system that substantially affects our brains, central nervous systems, immune systems, organs, tissues and cells that help maintain our inner balance (homeostasis) throughout the body. This system is known as the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) which is activated through the interaction between the endocannabinoids and the designated receptors (CB1/CB2). Charlotte’ Web hemp extract products has the active compound ‘cannabidiol or CBD’ which is the active phytocannabinoid (plant-based) that works harmoniously with the body’s own cannabinoid system and receptors in an effort to support the balance of various biological processes inside our bodies such as mood, metabolism, digestion, sleep, pain, memory and more.

It’s not psychoactive because it contains a very minimal amount of Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the active cannabinoid giving the high sensation.
