What is CBD Anyway?

CBD, also known as Cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring compound found in a number of plants, including hemp. It affects the human endocannabinoid system, helping many people to live better, happier lives. 

CBD was originally popularized in marijuana (hemp and marijuana are two different kinds of cannabis) and suffered a bit of an image problem from that association. Now we know better: CBD from hemp has been completely decoupled from cannabis, both legally and commercially. Now people know that CBD won’t get you high and that CBD is extremely unlikely to cause anyone any problems. (Visit the FAQ for more information.)

Over the past decade or so, CBD has entered broad use by the public for a wide range of reasons and in many different formats. Adults of all ages take it, many of us regularly. The most popular formats are tinctures (in dropper bottles), gummies, and topicals like salves. 

That’s why my AK CBD line features all of those formats. I want people to be able to choose the best CBD products for their purposes and lifestyle so they can maximise the benefits.

My CBD is extracted from hemp grown in the US and Western Europe. It is carefully blended and manufactured into all-natural products in California. I’m starting the line with two tinctures (Slumber and Tranquility), delicious gummies, and a great all-purpose salve. And there’s more to come!
