CBD extract can be obtained naturally or synthetically. In our products, we use only naturally extracted CBD. The extract is derived from certified hemp grown on open soil without pesticides or herbicides. The extract is then tested by accredited laboratories to ensure that the amount of THC in the extract does not exceed the required level of 0.2%.
