No, CBD will not get you high. It’s nonintoxicating. THC is the molecule that binds to receptors in our brain and is the one responsible for the psychoactive effects of marijuana. In fact, CBD is antagonistic to the marijuana high; some research expresses its potential to prevent THC molecules from binding to the brain’s receptors (hence the reason it’s often used to subdue the “paranoia” effects of super-potent THC strains).
No, there is a big difference between the two! Hemp seed oil is from the pressed seeds of the hemp plant. While nutritious, hemp seed oil does not contain any great number of cannabinoids. Hemp CBD oil is made from an extract of the hemp plant that is then blended with a carrier oil.
Many people tend to confuse CBD-rich hemp extracts with the hemp seed oil you can find at their local grocery store. In truth,
The main difference between CBD oil and hemp oil is that hemp oil does not contain significant amounts of CBD. While both are extracted from the hemp plant, CBD oil comes from the flowers and leaves whereas hemp oil comes from the seeds. CBD and other cannabinoids concentrate in the flowers and leaves, which is why we use these parts to create Five hemp products.
Hemp oil is also called “hemp seed oil” because it is made from the seeds of the hemp plant. The hemp seed oil has a multitude of very healthful uses as it can be used as a protein supplement for food, as varnish for wood, and is often used in hair and skin products.
There have been very few side effects reported from using CBD. An extensive 2011 study of safety and side effects of cannabidiol concluded that CBD is safe in a range of concentrations and has a better side effect profile when compared with other many prescription drugs. There have been some reports of CBD’s possible interactions with other medications, so we recommend discussing CBD with your health professional before adding CBD to your daily regimen.
As with any supplement or new wellness protocol, each person will have an individual and unique experience. As with beginning any new supplement, it’s wise to consult with your doctor first. Our products are not intended for persons that are or may be pregnant or nursing, have a medical condition, are taking any medications, or are under the age of 18.
No. CBD does not trigger the dopamine rush associated with addiction. Addiction is your brain’s neural pathways becoming addicted to the dopamine rush that comes from a behavior. Because CBD does not produce an excess of dopamine, it is not addictive, and you can use it without worrying about getting hooked. Plus, CBD does not bind with specific receptors in the brain itself unlike other drugs traditionally associated with addiction.
While the likelihood is extremely low, it is possible for a person to have an allergy to just about anything. As with any therapy, there are occasional side effects. Some of the known side effects of CBD Oil and cannabis therapies may include: Inhibition of hepatic drug metabolism/decreased activities of p-glycoprotein and other drug transporters.
No! You cannot overdose on CBD. Taking too much CBD will not result in any major adverse effects. Any grown adult human over 150 pounds can take more than 100 mg of CBD per day safely. The worst a person might experience from too much CBD is feeling drowsy, having a stomach ache, or mild diarrhea symptoms.
The FDA advises that during pregnancy and while breastfeeding, you avoid using CBD. However, this study suggests that “endocannabinoids have been detected in maternal milk, and activation of CB1 receptors appears to be critical for milk sucking by newborn mice, apparently activating oral-moto musculature.” We suggest checking with your doctor prior to use.*
The plant genus Cannabis contains three species; Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, and Cannabis ruderalis. CBD is derived from specific cultivars of Cannabis sativa, which are bred specifically to contain high levels of CBD and low levels THC. Cannabis sativa, which is below 0.3% THC is classified as hemp. Our CBD is derived from hemp.
No, CBD does not get you high. Unlike THC, CBD does not produce the psychoactive effect that is commonly associated with marijuana. CBD can prevent THC molecules from binding to the brain’s receptors. CBD has not demonstrated toxicity in the body; however, it is highly reactive with the body’s Endocannabinoid System. CBD is in no part psychoactive nor does it distort or impair cognitive functionality and judgment. In short, no you will not get high from using CBD!
CBD is non-intoxicating–so it will not get you high. CBD works with your body’s Endocannabinoid System, which is responsible for regulating many bodily functions, but has zero intoxicating effects.
Yes. Cannabinoid receptors, located throughout the body, are part of the endocannabinoid system, which is involved in a variety of physiological processes including appetite, pain sensation, mood, and memory. Cannabinoid receptors are of a class of cell membrane receptors in the G protein-coupled receptor superfamily.
Yes. CBD is CBD no matter if it comes from a hemp plant or a marijuana plant. However, the ratio of cannabinoids will be very different from a hemp plant and a marijuana plant. The most obvious difference is THC and CBD — marijuana has high THC, and generally, a low CBD level, while hemp is high in CBD, and low in THC. The other cannabinoids will vary a lot between these two plants as well. Terpenes also vary a lot between hemp and marijuana — but this really depends on the strains being used and can vary a lot from one plant to the next.
Our partnering farmers use selectively-bred hemp strains that contain higher terpene content than regular hemp plants.
When developing a CBD routine, we recommend focusing inward, on what you feel comfortable with. Pay attention to when and where you are noticing improvements in your overall health and wellness. CBD is intended to help you feel your best and find balance, which means it should help you do more of what you love.
CBD interacts with your body’s endocannabinoid system and can help by inhibiting the enzyme that breaks down your body’s endocannabinoids. This gives you a boost by increasing the number of endocannabinoids in your system.
All cannabinoids, including CBD, produce effects in the Endocannabinoid System, which is responsible for helping maintain homeostasis and balance within the body. The body naturally produces cannabinoids to help regulate functions like mood, pain, and sleep, but these can become diminished due to internal imbalances or external stressors. Supplementing the body’s natural cannabinoids with hemp-derived CBD helps bring the body back to balance, and in doing so, may optimize whole body wellness.
The human body contains a specialized system called the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is involved in regulating a variety of functions including sleep, appetite, pain, and immune system response. The body produces endocannabinoids, which are neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors in your nervous system. CBD impacts endocannabinoid receptor activity reduces inflammation and interacts with neurotransmitters. CBD modifies the receptors’ ability to bind to cannabinoids. Additionally, CBD plays a larger role in the endocannabinoid system: influencing other types of receptors, while also enhancing your natural levels of endocannabinoids by occupying certain enzymes.
In short, the endocannabinoid system receives messages that help it regulate different processes within the body – sleep, appetite, pain, etc. – and CBD affects which messages are sent and how they are received by the endocannabinoid system.
It really depends. CBD can have an immediate, noticeable effect but often the effects of CBD are not seen until a few weeks of consistent use. A person’s age, weight, metabolism, and genetics can affect how long it takes to feel the effects of CBD.
Properties of CBD will vary for each individual depending on height, weight, and the quantity of CBD taken. Because there are no intoxicating ingredients with CBD oil, there is no “high” effect; start with small amounts and gradually increase with each use until reaching desired results.
Since we are not medical professionals, we recommend that you consult with your physician or pharmacist prior to using any cannabinoids.
CBD has no physically addictive qualities, meaning you can use as much as you want as regularly as you want without worrying about becoming addicted. In addition, if you stop taking CBD, you won’t experience any withdrawal effects, even if you’ve been taking it for a long time. Along with the lack of harmful effects, this makes CBD a very risk-free natural supplement for users.
No. CBD is non-intoxicating and will not get you high. CBD works with your body’s Endocannabinoid System, which is responsible for regulating many bodily functions, without any psychotropic effects.
Yes, CBD is legal according to the 2018 Farm Bill. It is federally legal to grow, sell, and consume hemp-based products (including hemp-based CBD, which we use in all Simple Leaf products). The same isn’t true for marijuana-derived CBD products, for which legality varies by state.
Yes, cannabidiol is naturally produced by the cannabis/hemp plant. Also, cannabinoids are naturally produced within the human body in order to work with the endocannabinoid system. The best process used to naturally extract the cannabidiol oil is call “super-critical CO2 extraction”. The Co2 extraction process ensures the extraction of pure, highly concentrated cannabidiol oil from the plant without using chemicals or solvents. Another benefit of CO2 extraction is that it kills any microbial bacteria, insect mites, mold, or mildew on the cannabis plant providing a cleaner, healthier CBD oil.
Therefore, CO2 extraction guarantees that your concentrates will not only be cleaner, but significantly healthier for your consumption. CO2 extracted CBD oil is also much better tasting and contains more robust cannabinoid and terpene profiles.
CBD is non-psychoactive. Our hemp, in particular, is thoroughly tested for purity, quality, and cleanliness. Our extraction process utilizes industrial-grade CO2 extraction to ensure the purest CBD available.
CBD meets the World Health Organization (WHO) definition of being psychoactive. The WHO defines psychoactive substances as substances “that, when taken in or administered into one’s system, affect mental processes, e.g. cognition or effect.”
However, while this may be the case for CBD, it must be noted that CBD is non-intoxicating in its effects. It does not produce feelings of euphoria, stupor, or loss of control; effects commonly associated with THC ingestion. Research suggests that this is due to the fact that CBD does not bind to the CB1 receptor in the same way that THC does. In fact, CBD has been shown in some studies to modulate or reduce the intoxicating effects of THC.
The use of CBD has shown to be non-toxic and safe for humans and is well tolerated even at higher doses. We recommend you keep CBD out of reach of children, not intended for use under the age of 18. Consult your physician if you have a medical condition or are taking any medications. Do not take if you are pregnant or nursing.
Industrial Hemp is legal and is not psychoactive. It is legal for licensed farmers to grow. It is used for anything from clothing, soaps, oil, nutritional products and even textiles for homes.
No, there is a big difference between the two! Hemp seed oil is from the pressed seeds of the hemp plant. While nutritious, hemp seed oil does not contain any great number of cannabinoids. Hemp CBD oil is made from an extract of the hemp plant that is then blended with a carrier oil.
Many people tend to confuse CBD-rich hemp extracts with the hemp seed oil you can find at their local grocery store. In truth, these two oils are worlds apart.
Standard hemp seed oil is made by cold pressing the seeds of the hemp plant. The oil that’s produced is rich in nutrients like gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), amino acids, and trace minerals. It makes for an excellent source of nutrition — but doesn’t contain CBD or any of the other cannabinoids.
CBD hemp oils, on the other hand, are made from the resinous flowers of the female hemp plants (without seeds). The resin is extracted using state-of-the-art extraction methods to collect the cannabinoids, and terpenes naturally found in the plant resin. This is the source of CBD.
Yes. The TSA has stated that CBD products made legal under the Farm Bill are safe to fly with. You will not get in trouble at airport security for possessing CBD products from Simpel Leaf CBD.
Yes. It is perfectly legal to send and receive CBD products via the US Postal Service, thanks to the passage of the law coommonly known as the 2018 Farm Bill.
No. “Cannabis” refers to ALL products derived from the Cannabis sativa plant, while “marijuana” just refers to products containing significant amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the substance responsible for its mental effects.
A fancy word to describe the naturally-occurring chemical compounds found in cannabis, including CBD, CBN, CBG, THC, etc. Over 140 cannabinoids have been identified in the cannabis plant, as well as in cloves, black pepper, echinacea, broccoli, etc.
Terpenes are aromatic combinations of carbon and hydrogen in hemp, giving hemp plants their distinct scents. They are found in the trichomes of the hemp plant (the shiny and sticky crystals that cover the leaves and buds of the plant). Terpenes, which are part of a full-spectrum CBD, contribute to the hemp entourage effect.
Over 150 emerging studies show a wide range of CBD’s potential health benefits, including improved mood, better sleep, and reduced stress and pain.*
Until the FDA issues regulations on CBD, it’s important for reputable CBD brands like Simple Leaf to not make any overt medical claims regarding how CBD might affect you. We encourage you to do your own research about CBD and the importance of organic CBD.
People have been using CBD for over 50 years and there is an abundance of anecdotal evidence of CBD’s health benefits. People who have tried CBD often report it helped diminish their pain and anxiety, helped them sleep better, and provided them with a calm, relaxed, and overall positive feeling.
Unfortunately, the scientific community has historically shied away from clinical research of CBD, due to regulations classifying cannabidiol as part of the cannabis plant. However, the 2018 Farm Bill removed hemp-derived products from classification as a Schedule I controlled substance and the goal of the 2014 and 2018 Farm Bills was to allow and encourage research into hemp. It is expected that these regulatory changes will inspire many in the scientific and medical community to begin clinical research into the health benefits of CBD and the hemp plant.
When choosing between our different CBD-rich extracts, pay attention to two main factors:
Because the dose of CBD can vary so much from one person to the next, it helps to buy the right potency (strength) to match your individual dose. For example, if you require a high dose of CBD oil, it makes more sense to buy a high-potency oil. In order to achieve a high dose with the lower potency oils, you will need to take a lot of oil each time.
If you need only a small dose of CBD to get the desired effects, a low potency oil is a better option because it’s harder to go overboard on your CBD dose with these oils.
- Types of CBD Product
CBD comes in all forms — oils, capsules, gummies, teas, and even topical salves or ointments. Choosing the right type of CBD depends on what you’re using it for, and how important convenience is in your CBD regimen. CBD oils are the most well-rounded, as you can use them both internally and topically — but aren’t as straightforward to dose if you’ve never used CBD before. Other forms of CBD, such as CBD capsules come with improvements in flavor and make dosing much simpler.
Since CBD produces no psychoactive effect, there is no high or particular concern about your ability to function normally.
This is a great question and unique to the individual. Unlike THC, CBD is non-psychoactive, so you will not feel any mind-altering effects. When properly used, CBD oil can help you feel relaxed. In others it can make you feel sleepy. For those that have pain or anxiety, CBD oil can help ease these states when used regularly for a period of time. We’ve also seen numerous reports of mood improvement, more energy, better sleep, and relief from nausea.
CBD stands for Cannabidiol, which is a naturally occurring compound found in plants from the cannabis family, which include Hemp.
Cannabinoids are molecular compounds naturally made from Cannabis sativa plants; however, they are also found in other plants and produce inside our bodies. Cannabinoids are classified as fatty compounds that play vital roles within our immune and central nervous systems.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a natural compound that comes from the leaves, stalks, and flowers of industrial hemp or marijuana cannabis. It is the most widely accepted non-intoxicating cannabinoid found in Cannabis sativa plant. Hemp-based CBD extracts should not be confused with CBD from marijuana, even though they both derive from the same plant – all of our Simple Leaf CBD products contain CBD extracted from industrial hemp.
Cannabis is a flowering plant with three different species or varieties: Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, and Cannabis ruderalis. The cannabis plant is also known as hemp, although this term is often used to refer only to varieties of Cannabis cultivated for non-drug use. Cannabis has been cultivated for hundreds of years and used for hemp fiber, hemp seeds and their oils, hemp leaves for use as vegetables and as juice, medicinal purposes, and as a recreational drug. Some cannabis strains have been bred to produce high concentrations of various cannabinoids, but only minimal levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the principal psychoactive constituent. Hundreds of products, compounds and oil, are made from the cannabis plant.
Short for cannabidiol, CBD is a plant compound found in hemp, although not exclusive to it. In fact, it can actually be found in other plants like broccoli and kale.
CBD (short for cannabidiol) is the most prominent Phytocannabinoid found in the hemp plant. It is recognized for its multiple benefits for humans and animal companions alike. CBD is nonpsychoactive, is nontoxic, and taps into the receptors in the human endocannabinoid system, a vast network of receptors that help maintain the body’s overall wellness and support many physical processes.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the dozens of non-psychoactive cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. CBD, and all the other cannabinoids, were patented by the United States Government in 2003 as neuroprotectants and antioxidants (Patent No. 6,630,507). CBD is non-toxic and has powerful anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties that work naturally with the human body’s endocannabinoid system to produce a wide variety of health benefits.
Like CBD, CBG (short for cannabigerol) is among the 100+ molecules in the cannabis plant and is legal for cultivation, processing, and sale across the United States. CBG is unique for the “precursor” role it plays in synthesizing other cannabinoids like CBD and in synthesizing the overall chemical composition of the plant. For this reason, it is often referred to as the “stem cell” of cannabinoids. Our CBG product is designed to help you achieve your personal best and help you find balance in an increasingly chaotic world.
Hemp is a strain of the Cannabis sativa plant species that is grown specifically for the industrial uses of its derived products. It is one of the fastest growing plants and can be refined into numerous commercial applications. Although cannabis as a drug and industrial hemp both derive from the species Cannabis sativa, the hemp plant is grown specifically for its higher CBD concentration. Hemp has much lower concentrations of THC and higher concentrations of cannabidiol (CBD), which decreases or eliminates the psychoactive effects.
In chemistry, to “isolate “means to separate (a substance) into its purest form, free of other compounds. Isolated CBD is pure CBD without the presence of other cannaboids or terpenes.
Tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as THC, is the most prominent psychoactive component found in cannabis. Usually associated with marijuana, it is responsible for the “high” that users feel when consuming cannabis. Because of its molecular structure, THC binds directly with CB1 receptors. When this bond is formed, the reaction creates signals that are sent to the brain, which results in the psychoactive effects of “getting high.”
Both hemp and marijuana are from the cannabis genus. The characteristic of having low THC is the single difference that most rely on to distinguish therapeutic hemp from marijuana. CBD taken from hemp and marijuana is the exact same compound.
There are four main differences between hemp and marijuana:
Composition: The defining characteristic between hemp and marijuana is the chemical composition contained within each plant. Both hemp and marijuana can produce high amounts of CBD, the non-intoxicating cannabis compound; however, THC is produced at very different levels. While hemp can contain no more than 0.3% THC by dry weight, marijuana can contain up to 30% THC content.
Legality: Due to the difference between their levels of THC, hemp and marijuana are regulated very differently under the law. The 2014 and 2018 Farm Bills federally legalized hemp and hemp-derived products that contain no more than 0.3% THC. Marijuana, on the other hand, is still treated as a controlled substance and is illegal under the federal Controlled Substance Act.
Cultivation: Hemp and marijuana are harvested for different purposes so where and how they are grown is also different. Marijuana is selectively bred in specific environments to produce female plants that yield budding flowers with higher concentrations of the active THC compound. In contrast, hemp is usually grown outdoors to maximize its size and yield.
Usage: Hemp and marijuana each offer a range of usages that are unique to their composition. Marijuana is commonly recognized for its recreational uses, given that it contains a powerful psychoactive agent, THC, which can directly bind to the CB1 and CB2 receptors in the Endocannabinoid System, which induces the mind-altering, euphoric effects referred to as being “high.” Preliminary studies have revealed its potential in a wide variety of therapeutic applications. Since hemp is now not categorized as a drug, many scientists, doctors, and researchers are studying hemp and CBD for their physical and psychological health benefits.
Hemp Seed Oil contains zero CBD.
Both hemp seed oil and CBD oil come from the same “parent” (the hemp plant). However, while hemp seed oil is nutritionally dense and has its own wonderful purported health benefits, it contains zero CBD. CBD must be derived from the whole mature plant—including its stalks and flowers—in order to reap its benefits. At Sagely Naturals, our hemp CBD extract is sourced by harvesting the whole plant to maintain the intrinsic benefits of the entire plant.
Hemp seed oil is extracted solely from the seeds of the Cannabis sativa plant while CBD hemp oil is extracted from the plant’s flowers, stalk, stems and leaves. While hemp seed oil contains valuable nutrients and antioxidants, such as omega-3 and omega-6 acids and vitamins E, B2 and B6, cannabidiol quantities are rarely detectable. CBD hemp oil, however, contains high concentrations of cannabidiol as well as additional phytocannabinoids and terpenes.
CBD acts as stimuli for the cannabinoid receptors in the brain, gut, and immune system to support mental and physical health. Ingesting this potent antioxidant also activates the endocannabinoid system (ECS) located in the brain and throughout the central nervous system. The ECS is perhaps one of the most valuable biological systems supporting you from day-to-day. It is primarily made of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors, which are found in various tissues throughout the body. In each tissue, cannabinoids perform different tasks to maintain your body’s delicate balance through the ups and downs of life.
The ECS contains two main types of receptors, cannabinoid 1 (CB1) and cannabinoid 2 (CB2).
These receptors help balance and support the following: healthy heart, muscles, joints, bone health, a sense of calm, and daily stresses.
The endocannabinoid system is a complex system that involves the regulation of many processes within the human body. The word “endocannabinoid” comes from “endo” meaning originating inside the body and “cannabinoid” which is the group of compounds that activate this system. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is composed of two parts: endocannabinoids and their receptors. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. In each tissue, the cannabinoid system performs different tasks, but the goal is always the same: homeostasis, or to maintain a balanced environment in the body in response to changes in the world around you. In order to maintain homeostasis, the body relies on the endocannabinoid system to regulate body processes and keep them in balance.
Endocannabinoids are naturally produced by the body and they transmit messages from one part of the body to another. Endocannabinoids “send messages” by binding to specific cannabinoid receptor sites. The type of endocannabinoid and which receptor it binds to determines what message gets sent out to the body and what the body does with that message. Some endocannabinoids bind with receptors that send messages to the body systems that regulate sleep, pain, anxiety, mood, inflammation, and many other processes. These receptors also regulate the release of other neurotransmitters, such as serotonin, dopamine, and glutamate. The endocannabinoid system uses the messages passed between endocannabinoids and receptors to keep your body processes in balance.
In simple terms, the endocannabinoid system is like a post office box. Each postal box contains messages with information you need, but you can only access the box with the right key. The receptors are the lock and the endocannabinoids are the key. Once the right key (endocannabinoid) is put into the right lock (cannabinoid receptor), you can access your messages and take an action based on the information in the message.
CBD Capsules provide a simple, convenient way to take CBD. Capsules are pre-measured so you can take a consistent dose of CBD that’s fast and easy. CBD capsules are also easy to travel with.
CBD Gummies are a very popular form of CBD edibles. Gummies are offered in different CBD strengths and flavors. CBD gummies provide a simple, tasty way to take CBD and the gummy packs usually come with multiple pieces so you can take the amount of CBD that works for you. Gummies come in many varieties including sugar-free, gluten-free, and vegan.
From a scientific standpoint, both hemp and marijuana are the same species — Cannabis sativa. The difference is in their chemical makeup. Anything with less than 0.3% THC by dried weight is classified as hemp (non-psychoactive), while anything over this is marijuana (psychoactive).
Hemp is more commonly used for making food (hemp seeds), rope, paper, building materials, natural plastics, and most importantly — supplements such as CBD oil.
Marijuana is used recreationally, spiritually, or for medical purposes because of its psychoactive effects.
At Royal CBD, we only use hemp plants that have been specifically bred for their high CBD content and lack of psychoactive THC.
Hemp and marijuana are both types of the cannabis plant but have a key difference: THC (the compound that causes a euphoric “high”). Our products are sourced from organic hemp, which has high amounts of naturally occurring CBD and low amounts of THC (below 0.3%). Marijuana contains high amounts of THC and low amounts of CBD, which is not preferable for CBD production. While both types of cannabis can be used to produce CBD, only hemp-derived CBD was deemed federally legal by the 2018 Farm Bill.
There are many different ways you can take CBD — and none of them are more effective than the others.
The most popular method is via the mouth or sublingually with the help of oil, gummies, or our favorite — CBD infused capsules.
There are a variety of ways to take CBD, including capsules, sublingual oils, and topically. Each method is better suited for different types of CBD consumers. Most of our customers prefer CBD capsules, but everyone is different.
CBD helps to facilitate whole body wellness. This means it will support your body in finding equilibrium and doesn’t require a “more is better” approach. Ideal dosages are different for each person, but overshooting and taking too much CBD can actually reduce its effects. Experiment to find the dosage that feels right to achieve your desired effect and stick to it.

We make it easy for you to shop our CBD capsules.
We’re still learning more about exactly how CBD works daily – however what we do know is that CBD currently interacts with your endocannabinoid system. What happens is that CBD binds to receptors in your brain (known as CB1 receptors) and help modulate those receptors so they become less responsive. This helps stop disruptions in your endocannabinoid system, as many disruptions to the system stem from it being too active! If you struggle from anxiety, for instance, than these receptors are probably being overstimulated and using CBD can help give you the relief you need by preventing the hyperactivity that is causing the anxiety. CBD also mimics serotonin, by binding and activating your 5-HT1A serotonin receptors, which likely have a lot to do with CBD’s anti-anxiety properties.
No, CBD oil contains little to no THC, the active compound in Cannabis plant that has psychoactive properties which is what gives the “high” feeling. By law, CBD products must contain less than 0.3% THC and some products have no THC at all. Furthermore, CBD is specifically sourced from hemp plants that have high concentrations of active cannabinoids, but low amounts of THC. Quality hemp extracts provide all the benefits of CBD, but without the “high” attributed to THC.
Simple Leaf does not make any claims, express or implied, regarding the use of our CBD for stress, the use of our CBD for anxiety, the use of our CBD for pain relief, or any other symptom whatsoever. The FDA has not approved the use of CBD for these purposes.
