CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a chemical compound from the Cannabis sativa plant, which is also known as marijuana, according to the US National Library of Medicine. Cannabis sativa is an ancient medicinal plant known for thousands of years.
Some argue that the medical significance of CBD is greater than the significance of THC. Its lack of psychotropic effects is a huge advantage, as CBD can thus be safely consumed without a state of intoxication which could have side effects. CBD is also known for its myriad of health benefits, many of which are still under investigation.
CBD oil is produced by extracting CBD from a cannabis plant, then mixed with a "carrier" - an oil component such as coconut or hemp oil.
"CBD does not cause
any psychoactive effects
