What is CBD?
CBD - or Cannabidiol - is one of the compounds found in the cannabis sativa plant. These compounds, known as phytocannabinoids, have been found to help regulate bodily processes by affecting the body’s Endocannabinoid System.
The most commonly known phytocannabinoids are CBD and THC. The latter is the psychoactive compound that causes the ‘high’ associated with the marijuana plant. Like marijuana, hemp is also in the cannabis sativa family of plants, however it contains no more than 0.3% THC and therefore is non-psychoactive and does not cause a ‘high’ feeling. CBD from hemp is legal at the federal level.
CBD does not cause any ‘high’ but is known for supporting a variety of processes in the human body and mind.
