What is CBD?
CBD or cannabidiol is a type of cannabinoid, a chemical compound that’s naturally found in cannabis plants. It can come from the marijuana plant or in our case the hemp plant. It happens to be the second-most prevalent cannabinoid occurring in cannabis and is completely separate from THC. CBD is just one cannabinoid. Cannabinoids are 21 carbon molecules that block or stimulate the endocannabinoid receptors in the body. It is known that other cannabinoids, such as THC, THCV, CBN and CBD, bind to CB1 and/or CB2 receptors, just as the brain’s own naturally occurring cannabinoids AEA and 2 AG.

What is the difference between hemp and marijuana?
Hemp and marijuana are both types of cannabis. Marijuana contains high levels of the cannabinoid known as THC, which causes a high and is known as a drug. Hemp contains negligible amounts of THC, does not cause a high and is not considered to be a drug as of 2018.

American HEMP and CBD are Exceptional

Folera sources its CBD from the highest quality Hemp selected for premium CBD products. Our No THC products provide the purest experience with CBD and we guarantee the highest quality CBD available!

Broad Spectrum and Entourage Effect
When shopping for CBD you will find a few different labels on CBD products. The labels are important. There is Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum and CBD Isolate products. Full Spectrum products include all the cannabinoids as well as THC. CBD Isolate products contain just CBD and no other cannabinoids. Broad Spectrum is a hybrid and contains multiple cannabinoids without THC. This gives Broad Spectrum CBD two advantages; it will produce the entourage effect and will not produce the psychoactive result of THC. It will also keep you from failing drug tests. The entourage effect is a whole plant experience which helps to multiply the effect of each cannabinoid and produce a better result for you.
