What exactly is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a type of chemical compound known as a cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant, usually more commonly referred to as hemp or marijuana. Scientific research has shown that CBD may have great therapeutic potential for diverse human conditions, such as chronic pain, epilepsy, schizophrenia and more. CBD also seems to have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antitumor, and neuroprotective qualities. It is a non-psychotropic compound, meaning it will not cause the sensation of “being high”, only mild relaxation without intoxication. Recently, CBD’s reputation in pop culture has changed into a naturally derived alternative or supplement to traditional medicines.
