CBD stands for Cannabidiol (Can-a-bid-i-ol). Cannabidiol is one of the main components of cannabis and in the class of molecules called cannabinoids. CBD makes up around 40% of the plant yet is just one of over 100 compounds found in cannabis; which includes both hemp and marijuana. Out of all of these compounds, CBD and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) generally have the highest presence and therefore are the most researched of all the phytocannabinoids found in cannabis. CBD is the non-psychoactive component, meaning It does not induce the high feelings that THC does, and is believed to have a wide variety of potential health benefits. The human body has a system known as the endocannabinoid system which utilizes cannabinoids in a variety of ways in the body. CBD oil is the purest form of cannabidiol extract from the hemp or marijuana plant and is found in tincture form.
