Have you been wondering about what CBD is all about too?

CBD a HOT word in the health world these days. It caught my biology loving attention for some time now, making me VERY curious about the health effects of it but hesitated to use it with out knowing more about it.

I had some pieces of insight on it but not enough to feel qualified to answer the questions I received from so many people this year on it how it works.

That is no longer the case thanks to this epically educational conversation on CBD with Jay Hartenhbach, the CEO of Medterra, a leading supplier of the highest quality CBD companys existing in the market today.

Jay and I dive deep into all of the currently known layers of CBD.

In this episode you will learn:

  • What CBD is

  • The difference between Hemp + Marijuana

  • How CBD is extracted from Hemp

  • Why CBD is healthy for us

  • Who CBD is great for

  • Jay’s educational background + how Medterra came to exist

  • What to look for when shopping for a quality CBD product

  • If the geography pf the hemp plants effect the quality of the CBD produced from it

  • THC’s effect on CBD

  • Pharma’s new CBD medicinal treatment

  • If CBD usage could be an issue for Pro athletes

  • The powerful anti-inflammatory responses and how it helps to heal bodily injuries
