About CBD (Cannabinoid)

Cannabinoid is an extract from hemp plants. Hemp is the common name for plants of the entire genus Cannabis, but the term is often used to refer only to Cannabis strains cultivated for industrial (non-drug) use. There are two strains of Cannabis: Indica and Sativa, each with different components and effects. Both strains contain THC and CBD with the plants containing less than 0.3% THC considered to be industrial hemp. Industrial hemp usually has higher levels of CBD (up to 5% in some variations).

The use of hemp is not new. There is evidence that industrial hemp has been used as medicine for over 10,000 years and its use as food, textile, and paper was wide spread. In fact, the original flag of the United States was made of hemp fibre. More recently, the construction, automotive, pharmaceutical and cosmeutical industries have started utilizing this amazing plant. Research and testing of CBD is showing tremendous benefits in health and well-being and doctors and researchers around the world are exploring its possible uses with demonstration of its efficacy as: anti-convulsion,  anti-psychotic, anti-inflammatory, anti-depressive, antioxidant, and anti-tumoral.

Different varieties of hemp have different qualities. The Serbian hemp cultivated by Eviana is clean, and organic with the highest levels of CBD (5%) making it highly sought after.
