CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a compound found naturally in hemp plants. More interesting than that is how CBD has been shown to have a wide range of medical applications without side effects. Unlike its cousin tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD is not psychoactive, therefore you can add CBD to your daily routine without experiencing a high.
CBD is one of at least 85 to over 100 active cannabinoids identified in Cannabis so far. As a natural constituent of hemp oil, CBD by nature has a very low level of THC compared to Marijuana and is therefore legal in all 50 states. CBD has altered the view of cannabis in a wonderful way. And believe it or not, research has known about CBD just as long as THC. But recently, CBD has become very popular in the medical cannabis field of study due to its natural effectiveness against diseases and pain.
