What Is CBD Oil?

Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is derived from the stalk and seed of cannabis (hemp) plants. It is a natural botanical concentrate that is high in the compound CBD. There are more than 85 cannabinoids that have been identified in the cannabis plant. CBD is the second most common after THC. Unlike THC, CBD is non-psychotropic and does not get you high.

The oil extracted from cannabis varieties that are naturally abundant in CBD, and low in THC. At Gulf South Organics, we use a patented extraction process to yield highly concentrated CBD oil or pure cannabidiol that also contains omega-3 fatty acids, terpenes, vitamins, chlorophyll, amino acids, and other beneficial nutrients.

CBD oil can is often consumed as a nutritional supplement. Advances in CBD oil product development have led to dozens of different types of CBD hemp oil products, including capsules, drops, chewing gum, and lotions.

Third-Party Tested 

Not all CBD products are created equally. When choosing CBD products, we recommend third-party lab-tested products, which means product testing by a private party *not* affiliated with the manufacturer or distributor. Our products are tested by Botanacor Services, Colorado’s most trusted lab to ensure the highest quality. Our CBD products contain less than .03% THC, the legal limit for CBD products.
