Hemp has always been used for a variety of purposes. In the past hemp was used as an alternative for paper, rope, firewood and lots more! In recent times it's been discovered that hemp plants, otherwise known as the cannabis sativa plant contain a substance called CBD.
“#CBD will change culture. People are less interested in drinking in bars, getting really drunk, feeling shit the next day, letting their body down, having issues with their body because of that. The shift is happening: more people are interested in eating healthier, living healthier, and this is part of that”. (Source: theguardian.com)”
#CBD, which is short for cannabidiol, is a chemical compound from the above mentioned hemp plant, which is also commonly known as marijuana or hemp. According to the US National Library of Medicine - it's a naturally occurring substance that is used in various products such as #CBD oils and #CBD edibles to impart a feeling of relaxation and calm.
