Hemp, but not CBD or most cannabis, exerts impressive body balancing effects. Over-active bodily systems slow down, and the under-active accelerate.
By gently activating the body’s system of self-regulation via hemp, you just feel better. But there’s a huge difference between products. CBD supplements may do more harm than good. The key differentiator lies in the farming and extraction practices.
