CBD is derived from the cannabis plant. It is one of over 60 compounds found in cannabis that belong to a class of ingredients called cannabinoids. Research is helping scientists discover the many amazing abilities of cannabinoids, particularly those in cannabis plants. They are proving to have great value in treating many ailments.
CBD is the major non-psychoactive component of cannabis that offer a broad spectrum of positive affects on many ailments, including, being an anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, antioxidant, antiemetic, anxiolytic and antipsychotic agent. All cannabinoids, including CBD, attach themselves to certain receptors in the body to produce their effects.
Before I continue, let me address the question everyone asks: Is using CBD the same as using marijuana?
No. They come from the same plant family, however, they utilize different compounds.
Marijuana is known for being abundant in THC, which is well-known for the mind-altering "high" it produces when broken down by heat and introduced to the body.
CBD is not psychoactive. Meaning, it does not change your state of mind. However, it does appear to produce significant health benefits. In addition, unlike THC, CBD can be administered at relatively high doses without undesired psychological side effects.
Most of the CBD used medicinally is found in the least processed form of the cannabis plant, known as hemp.
