What is CBD?


CBD (Cannabidiol) is a naturally occurring, non-psychoactive compound or “Phyto cannabinoid” found in the Cannabis Plant. There have been over 100 cannabinoids identified so far in the Cannabis plant. THC and CBD are two of the major cannabinoids currently researched on and used throughout the medical cannabis community.


CBD works directly with the endocannabinoid system to influence the body and bring it into homeostasis (balance). This is why CBD is such a great medicine for combatting things like stress, anxiety and mild pain. Learn more here:


CBD & the Endocannabinoid System

Here at Terrestrial Roots we take pride in providing high quality cannabis medicine currently sourced from NY Industrial Hemp.  We believe that a Full Spectrum product will provide the most relief when using Hemp to relieve your ailments. 


It’s important to note that CBD (Cannabidiol) can come from both Hemp and Marijuana plants. The Cannabis plant has many different varieties also known as “cultivars” that have been bred for specific purposes (i.e Fibers, Psychoactive effects, traditional medicine and food) for over 200 years.


Both Hemp and Marijuana are varieties of the Cannabis Plant. The legal and recognized difference between the two varieties is the concentrations of THC found in the plant. 


Industrial Hemp must not have a concentration higher than .3% THC overall. Whereas Marijuana has percentages of up to 20% +. 


Terrestrial Roots always sources CBD from Industrial Hemp grown by small local Farms on the East Coast.
