On August 8th, National CBD Day recognizes the natural hemp product everyone is talking about!

National CBD day was only recently introduced in 2019 after the Hemp-derived product (cannabidiol) experienced a huge surge of interest in the health and wellness world. Numerous high-profile celebrities like Seth Rogen, Whoopi Goldberg, Miley Cyrus and Kim Kardashian West all praising the benefits of the hemp-derived oil.

It isn’t new though, herbalists have long used hemp to promote wellness, while farmers have grown it as a source of fiber to make cloth and rope.

What is CBD?

CBD is the abbreviation for Cannabidiol, and Cannabidiol is an organic compound (sometimes referred to as cannabinoids) that is found within hemp and cannabis plants.

In fact, it is just one of the 113 identified cannabinoids that make up the hemp and cannabis plants.

The CBD products you will find on our site are always be derived from hemp plants.

We offer both at Essench to provide options for each individuals preferences and needs.

CBD is non psychoactive and contains little or no levels of THC. The legal THC limit for CBD products is 0.3%.
