Good question. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a molecular compound found in cannabis and hemp plants proven to be an effective natural treatment for a wide range of health conditions, ailments, and diseases.
It’s been scientifically proven to modulate and repair many physiological systems in the human brain and body through the endocannabinoid system. Found in all mammals, the endocannabinoid system is made up of several receptors that react only to cannabinoids, such as CBD and the more well-known compound, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).
The key difference between CBD and THC is that, unlike THC, hemp-derived CBD is 100% non-psychoactive — so it doesn’t result in that “high” feeling commonly associated with cannabis.
