Well here is a little information which may help answer the question what is cbd?
Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is one of the 2 most prevalent compounds in industrial hemp and cannabis/marijuana. CBD and THC are key ingredients in cannabis and come under the umbrella group of ‘cannabinoids’. CBD is a non-psychoactive compound and many believe it has significant medical benefits.
The levels of CBD and THC in plants vary. Marijuana plants grown for recreational use tend to have high levels of THC and lower CBD. Industrial Hemp has very low levels of THC and medical marijuana has high CBD.
Unlike THC, CBD does not get you high and CBD products made from industrial hemp plants are legal in many countries, including the UK and USA. In the USA it is legal to use CBD products made from medical marijuana plants if you live in a state where medical marijuana is legal and you have a prescription. No prescription is needed for CBD products produced from industrial hemp.
Many people claim that CBD rich products help patients who suffer from inflammation, arthritis, chronic pain, MS, depression and many other illnesses. It is argued that CBD has neuroprotective and neurogenic effects and many parents of children with epilepsy are using CBD oil and are experiencing positive results.
