CBD is one of many cannabinoids found in cannabis. Also known as cannabidiol, CBD oil is widely recognized for its possible benefits to the health of both humans and animals.
Cannabis is the genus name for both marijuana and hemp, and the term itself is not necessarily interchangeable with marijuana.
In fact, almost all CBD oil today comes from industrial hemp, which contains negligible amounts of THC, which is the cannabinoid responsible for causing a high.
Most strains of agricultural hemp are rich in CBD while only having less than 0.03 percent THC, making them perfect for extracting CBD oil.
CBD does not make you high. Unlike its fellow cannabinoid THC, CBD does not have psychoactive properties.
Many CBD oil full spectrum products contain trace amounts of THC, but they don’t have enough of it to produce a psychoactive effect.
